Hi friends! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share a really cool new way to display and showcase your scrapbook pages. If you’re like me, sometimes when you finish a layout you love, you don’t want to put it in an album right away; you want to put it somewhere you can see it and enjoy it! Creative Memories new Wooden Frame Hanger is an awesome way to display your precious pages until you’re ready to tuck them away in your album for safekeeping. The Wooden Frame Hanger is genius in its simplicity…just unscrew the fasteners, slip the edges of your layout in between the two wooden bars and tighten the screws. Then hang it from the decorative gold chain on a nail or hook. (Note that in my photos below, just the top hanger is shown, but it comes with another wooden bar that fastens onto the bottom of…

Hi everyone, Eileen Hull here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! I hope you are keeping cool this week! Temps in Virginia were at 100 degrees and I headed to the ocean with a couple of crafty friends. We loaded the truck up with enough supplies to last a year, even though we were only spending one night. Sound familiar? I had found a bag of shells in a dollar store and decided to create something with them. I have always been fascinated with how delicate they look and how strong they are! I used Clearsnap ColorBox Blends2 inks and Molten Dimensions embossing powders by Emerald Creek Craft Supplies to add color to the shells. They came out so pretty! I think it would be really cool to add these to a frame, shadowbox or even add to a tag or card if the shell was small enough. The…
