Today I am showing you the Spellbinders 3D Embossing Folders. These 3D folders are great because they give you different levels of depth of embossing. In the folder above, Roman Romance, you can see how there is deep embossing and then as the folder moves down it fades out. I have used cards that I had previously inked the backgrounds. I then embossed them and I used Archival Inks to make the embossed areas pop!
This is the Creative Cogs folder. I did the same technique as above.
I loved this European Tapestry folder as well. All of the details are really beautiful. I love to let the designs stand on their own, but you could always layer elements on top of the cards.
There are many more Spellbinders 3D Embossing Folder Designs to choose from!

The other week I had prepped so many Scrap Time episodes and classes that my head couldn’t hold any more information. So I stopped and waited until I could do some filming with Mark. Finally on Friday we were able to film. When I am filming I have piles of supplies around the table, ready to film the next episode. Then once I finish an episode I try and put the supplies away, cleaning as I go so I don’t have a big mess at the end. We got 6 episodes filmed for the next few weeks. Luckily, Mark has Friday’s off this month so we can do some filming while Gemma is at school. This Friday I will be filming the June and July Step By Step Art Journaling classes!
Today I am showing you the Dylusions Paints from Ranger. These are very soft body paints that are great for layering on your projects. They are currently available in 12 colours and co-ordinate with the Dylusions Sprays. Dyan has also put out a book: Distinctly Dylusional. This book has step out photos featuring a pile of different techniques!
I did the same techniques on this page using the Dylusions Paints, but I used the Crafter’s Workshop Be In Love template a different way. I wanted to show how you can use the templates in a variety of ways.
This is the card I made in the video. You can use the 12×12 templates on cards as well!
I have a copy of Distinctly Dylusional to give away! Just leave a comment here on the Scrap Time blog to be entered to win!

Today I am showing you ways I prep for a vacation, document it while I am there, and then put together a photo book. First off, before I leave I set up an itinerary. When we go to Disney I plan out which day we will go to which park, our dining reservations, Fast Pass+, as well as other activities such as movies, shopping or bowling. I write all of this down in a little notebook that I will carry around with me.
For our last trip to Disney I also made an Autograph book. I put together photos from many trips of us with the Characters. I made the book through Photo In Press. They are based in Montreal. I then took this book with us and had the characters sign their photos. It’s a great alternative if you visit often.
While we were at Disney I documented our trip in another small notebook. We were there for 2 weeks, so if I didn’t write down what we did and where we ate, there’s no way I would remember. I also glued in ticket stubs and had the KidCot stations add their stamps and doodles in the book. I even got some autographs from characters that weren’t in my autograph book. I started making it fancy, but by the end I was just writing out the basics.
Here’s a photo from Epcot – France, enjoying my breakfast while writing in my book.
I have now decided to make Photo Books in place of scrapbooking. I went through Photo In Press. I find their software easy to use, they are quick – 2 days to print and it only takes a day to ship from Montreal to Toronto, and I am very happy with the finished product.
Here are some pages from my book. There is plenty of room to journal about your trip. You choose you page layout. You can have 1 to 16 photos per page. My book is 8 1/2″ x 11″. The dark pictures still have a brightness to them. The book is stitch bound. I made a photo sleeve for this book. I had originally made a photo book through Blacks and it was awful. The photos were dull and the book is glued together. When I complained they said it was my photos needed brightening. Well, I remade the book through Photo In Press and it turned out great!! So I highly suggest NOT to use Blacks.
This is the Christmas book that I re-did. This time I did a photo cover, which I do prefer over the Photo Sleeve. Photo In Press is a Canadian Company but they do ship Internationally for reasonable shipping prices.
Note: I am not getting paid to write this post. I paid for my Photo Books and I really loved them – that is why I wanted to share them with you.
So that should give you ideas for preparing for vacations, documenting them while you are away and then pulling it all together in a Photo Book (or a scrapbook).
On the next episode I am featuring Dylusions Paints from Ranger!
I find once you start creating the more inspired you get. One thing triggers a new idea. That is why I have been on a stencil making streak. Last week I made this new stencil – Paint Splatters. I love the way it turned out. I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet, but once I make a few samples it will be up in my Etsy Shop!
