Looking for different album that will challenge you and offer you a creative twist?
We've found it with the Pink Paisley Parisian Anthology Albums!
I've wanted a larger style canvas album to play around with for a long time. This canvas covered album gives you the free to alter the front to your hearts content. This means painting it, stamping on it, inking on it, or use it as we did with a photo transfer.

Keely made this album for us, and used the theme "through the years" and included words to the famous song on the pages. She used photos she found of her Dad as a child, and growing up which are absolutely priceless.
This album comes with 20 divided page protectors in assorted sizes. Keely reproduced her family photos at the local photo place, and sized them to fit into the divided page protectors.
What's great about the album are the papers and accents that come with the line. The paper line is RESIST. What is resist? The paper has a glossy white surface printed ONTO the paper that can barely be seen with the naked eye, but when ink or paint is put to the papers the background resist pattern shows through. Keely accented all the pages in her book using Tim Holtz Distress Ink and the ink blending tool.
The page protectors have great little flaps on them, you can play around with the them. Hide journaling there, or add special photos. The tickets shown in the photo above can be purchased as well. They come white, and you accent them with ink. (Distress Ink and Ink Blending Tool)

It's a great fun way to build a special album for a special memory or loved one!
The Pink Paisley Anthology Line includes clear stamps, elements, journal spots, tickets, the album and papers. It can be found on our website here.

Photobucket
Let's talk about the photo transfer. I've been wondering about this for a long time. I finally discovered a cool product by Claudine Hellmuth called Multi Medium Gloss. You can use it for photo transfer.

Photo transfer can be done with a transparency or a laser copy. Keely and I both played around with this technique and I think the laser copy is the best option. You can take your images or photos to any copy store and ask them to copy laser for you. Remember if you are printing text you will need to have your text printed backwards. Here's a video by Claudine Hellmuth showing the technique. Don't be concerned that she is using paint, she says at the end the same instructions apply to Multi Medium Gloss which is what we are using.




It's a fun technique to try!

The first in a series of dimensional chipboard books from Creek Bank Creations! I wanted to make books that had dimension to them, things we could pop up, put photos behind and stick things out of. Over the next few weeks you'll be seeing my newly designed chipboard books. All our books are cut from our heavy weight chipboard. How many of our competitors albums could you cover with this amount of Mudd Puddles product....have it NOT warp...and still stand up beautifully?
This sand castle book comes with parts, and 4 pages. The first thing you want to do is cover the castle parts, and water with Mudd Puddles. I used Malibu, ocean, and Tahiti. A THIN COAT of Mudd Puddles, then use the knife to clean off your edges. Allow to air dry 2 hours, then cover with wax paper and put a book on them overnight to dry.
Decide what you are going to do with the background of page 1. I covered mine with paper, and I covered the back as well. You could also accent them with ink, or paint them. While you are waiting for Mudd Puddles to dry, cover the front and back of page 1 as desired.
Once you have the front covered, and the parts are dry start putting it all together.
Glue the top part on first, adhering it with Scotch Quick Dry directly to the chipboard. Work down, and get ready to put on the next two smaller pieces.

Each kit comes with one extra piece of chipboard. It will be a smaller scrap piece. You'll want to take this piece, and cut small sqaures to adhere to the back edges of your next two pieces. I placed these small chipboard pop dots on the edges, giving the book strength. Adhere these pieces onto the sand castle parts using Scotch Quick Dry adhesive. Adhere the castle parts to the book using Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.

The final step is to adhere the larger bottom piece. You will want to cut more chipboard pop dots, and adhere them to the castle just like the other pieces. I cut pieces to support the outside edge, and the lower bottom edge. It will help if you cut the pieces the same size as the castle parts you are trying to support. Adhere castle to page.

Now there may be places on the edges that your chipboard pop dots show. Just go back and cover those areas with Mudd Puddles and allow them to dry overnight.

Photobucket
Each of the new books has a scalloped page, and two other waterfall pages. All cut from heavyweight chipboard. I used My Minds Eye Sunshine Boy to accent this book. I love this paper!
I used

I used Maya Road Chipboard Alphas for the front cover, accented with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy.



It's a great deal of fun and makes me long for lazy days at the beach! (this book will begin shipping March 9, 2011)

I know my changes our operations hours is a pain...and it frustrates you because you never know for sure if we are open. It's a simple reality for us, that is forcing this change. (Better to be wise and still open, then stubborn and closed!) I know that locally our problems is that many, many people don't even know we are here. Any help you can throw our way in that area would be appreciated!

Creek Bank Creations Exclusive Product....Page Extensions


Talk to any person who scrapbooks and you'll hear the same issue. How can I get more photos on a page? This is something I've been playing around with for about two years. (Did I mention my love for playing around with paper and nonsense things...). Anyway I have developed a new style of page additions that will greatly help anyone who is trying to get more photos on a page. The Creek Bank Creations page extensions will give you room to put plenty of nice size photos on a layout (not just 3x3's), plus a great place for hidden journaling on your pages. I LOVE THIS!

The page above called Skeet Shoot is my son's graduation party. We wanted to something he would like...he insisted he was NOT having a party. Tom and I thought on this for a long time, and then decided WE were having a party! We told Brye what we were doing and invited him to his party! It was a great time with family and friends and Brye had a great time! Brye's friends said it was the coolest graduation party they went to! Ohhhh I've digressed....We had tons of photos...so I made this page with a page extension. Look below and you'll see the close up of the rectangle page extension. Page extensions are added to the page with scor tape, in this case at the top of the page.


Look below and you'll see the page extension open! Now I've got a place for more photos, and journaling too! One of things I've found about page extensions is that I can HIDE colors in photos that don't match my page layout! Notice below the photo of the gun laying on top of the pink towel. This was funny because the towel had a gun on it, and it is just a great photo. The problem is that pink towel totally destroys the color scheme I have going. Using Creek Bank Creations Page Extensions allowed me to hide that photo, but still include it.


How about some graduation photos? This graduation layout has 10 photos..all good sized, and some not even cropped! I've got all those photos on this layout, PLUS a big title banner, a quote and some decorative accents!


This layout has the page extension added into the side of the album, and again attached with scor tape. Scor tape is a high tack tape on a roll that is similar to pink tacky tape. The great thing about scor tape is that you can tear it with your fingers, and it is clear. When you purchase a package of Page Extensions from Creek Bank Creations I've included a full page of instructions and tips for using them. I do, for example, recommend that you score the inside edge of the rectangle piece when adding it to your photo album. I've included detailed instructions on just how to do that when you purchase page extensions.
Not working in a 12x12 album? That is ok...you can cut the page extensions down in your paper cutter to fit your pages, then slip paper into them.
Page extensions are CLEAR...you add the paper you want so that it matches every page you build.
The rectangles are great, but the triangles are fun! The triangle can be added from the top as I've done here, or from the side. I can't wait to do a sports page and insert this on the side of the page as a banner! (yippee ya ya)

Flip up that page extension and you've got room for more photos, and journaling.
I've also put together a package of what I call journaling spots. Journaling spots are white cardstock papers that have lines on them. These pieces are made to fit the page extensions exactly. (If you look closely you can see the bottom half of a journaling spots on the page above. The printed lines and journaling boxes in the Journaling Spots kit also have pieces that fit into the divided page protectors from We R Memory Keepers.
Page extensions work with post bound albums, top loading or side loading albums, strap hinge albums, and d ring albums. Basically if your album has page protectors, our page extensions will work for you! You can even punch our page extensions with Bind It All, Cinch, or other binding programs.

I hope you'll give the page extensions a try...and I'd love to see what you design with them!
For our retail stores: Both journaling spots, and page extensions are available for purchase in your stores. Please follow our ordering instructions, and do not use coupon codes with your order.
Just a reminder that the shop is closed this weekend as I am going to Oklahoma for a show. We've got tons of new products on the way and we'll be posting those soon. (New Sew Easy Tools, New My Minds Eye, Twig from Little Yellow Bicycle and more!) Remember the 30% off sale runs all week as well. (Order snow or valentine products and use coupon code toomuchsnow and get 30% off your order).
