Scrapbook Soup

Scrapbook Soup Show 207 is now airing online @  We air each show 24/7 every day for a week starting at noon EST on Fridays.  This week's show was all about new materials.  I started the show by sharing an assortment of materials to be used with an inkjet printer.  I love photography, so I'm always looking for new ways to display my photographs.  One of my personal favorites is Transfer Artist Paper from C&T Publishing.  You can print on this material then add the images to almost any surface! 

Another favorite of mine is canvas.  You can almost achieve the look of an oil painting using this material.  It's a great surface for a multitude of mixed media projects and inkjet canvas paper is easy to find.  This was the basis for the first project I designed for Elmer's.  I just love this photo of the cardinal.  I found him sitting on the fence one wintery morning and shot him - with  my camera of course......  The project was designed to feature glue as a resist.  You'll have to watch to see what I did!  Hope you love it as much as I do. 

Stacey Caron from Spellbinders presented our second project, a shabby chic scrapbook page using die cut elements that were cut, embossed and stencilled using a single die!

The "Puppy Love" page, designed by Julie FF, featured a new line of wood embellishment, tools and inks from Prima

and for our final project, Suzy West shared some "WOW" ideas for using embossing powders on metal.

The overall theme for this series is Journaling and at the end of each show, we share personal journals from viewers who are also CHA Designer members.   The first journal is from Madeline Arendt.  You can find more details about this journal on her blog @  The second journal was created by Brenda Pinnick.

You can see detailed instructions on how to make each of these projects when you watch the show. Project instructions are also available on our website under the "Projects" tab.  Enjoy!

Have a very wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!  Y'all come back now.....

Yours truly,
Julie :)
