Welcome to Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's Back Stage Pass! My name is Jackie Ludlage and I am the Editor and Cofounder of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. Join me for a look into both my world and the everyday life of creating a magazine.
WHERE YOU CREATE is heading to “small town” British Columbia this week! Christine Dunbar has been kind enough to share her scrapbooking room with us and sends out BIG praises to her wonderful husband in the process!
As we peek into her space I first notice all the bright light from the windows, lucky for her to have such wonderful natural light, and look at all the cubbies for storage!
Panoramic view of Christine’s room!
The next view is of Christine’s desk space. It’s looking pretty organized and functional! I sense pink just may be her favourite colour (did you notice the pink T.V. in the panoramic view?). Looks like a great space to work in, everything seems very accessible and ready to be put to work!
Christine’s work station looks so functional!
Here’s what Christine had to say!
“This is my scrapbook room. When we moved in 2011, we moved to a very small town in Northern British Columbia (Fort Nelson). I had recently had a hysterectomy and wasn’t getting around very well. My husband moved two months before me and my daughter. He went house hunting and I said; “this is what I want: I want a nice scrapbook room, a big kitchen and a giant tub!” Well I have to say I think that he did a great job at house hunting. My scrapbook room is perfect! Good husband!!”
If the scrapbook room is any indication…I would have to agree! JOB WELL DONE! Hats off to Christine’s hubby! Whoo Hoo!!!! Thanks Christine for a glimpse into your space!

As I scrapbook pictures from my childhood, I keep going back to the Vintage Floret patterned paper collection by Heartfelt Creations. The soft muted colours and vintage feel are just perfect for my old photos.
To make this layout special, I used a couple of Heartfelt Creationsstamp sets and the matching Spellbindersdies. Here is one of the stamps from the Leaf Medley set. I used Clearsnap ColorBox Fluid chalk ink for all the stamping on this layout. The colours and soft finish are just perfect.
The Leaf Medley stamps have a wonderful coordinating SpellbindersShapeability set called Foliage. I stamped and cut a bunch of leaves using these coordinating products. Highly recommended. I would really hate to have cut out all of these leaves and flowers by hand.
I stamped right onto the Heartfelt Creations patterned paper. If the leaves aren’t ‘green’ enough for you, just wand on some more colour with a Clearsnap ColorBox foam applicator.
I just kept stamping and die-cutting, stamping and die-cutting until I thought the layout had enough stuff, then I attached everything to the layout using a bunch of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L dimensional foam adhesive. A little dimension is just the perfect finishing touch.
