Hello! I’m happy to be here to share a special layout created with products from the gorgeous new “Forever Yours” Collection by Creative Memories! The collection is designed to help you preserve your wedding memories, but it worked just as beautifully to preserve the memory of a very special woman. My mom passed away recently and she’s been on my mind a lot. I wanted to create a layout to remember her by that featured one of the last photos taken of us before her Alzheimer’s disease became very advanced. I knew that the colors in the photo would work beautifully with the colors in the Forever Yours papers (rich cream, silvery gray, gold, navy and pink) and the coordinating Stickers and Pearl Adhesive Gems from the Embellishment Pack. I also used CM’s lustrous Gold Shimmer Cardstock as a backdrop, and Navy ABC/123 Stickers for my title. I wanted to…

April Sketchy Challenge Blog Post 3-in-1 challenge. Happy April everyone! Kerry Engel here.  I thought this month we could talk about design principles. I’ve always been a disciple of the CRAP Method of designing: Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity. These are the four principles that dictate pretty much everything I create. Here’s how I’ve used these principles in the April sketch: Contrast is created through the placement of the photo strip on the left and the white space on the right. Repetition is expressed through the repeating of the circle motif and the rectangular shapes in the photos and journaling blocks. Alignment is achieved by keeping all the spaces between the elements a similar distance apart. Proximity is attained by keeping “like” elements close and tight. The journaling is kept together (in one area) and isn’t spread all over and the photos are kept collected in one area too. This…

Hi there! I’m excited to be back today to share a layout featuring a couple of new products that were released by Creative Memories this month – the Sorbet Collection and the Rectangle Templates for the Custom Cutting System! The Sorbet Collection is full of delicious colors and patterns, and it also has a bit of a retro feel to it. I dug out a variety of old photos of myself that echoed the colors and had a bit of a vintage look. I knew I would have to tone down the bright, busy pattern of the paper with a solid color to make the photos stand out. But instead of just using the Rectangle CCS Templates to simply matt my photos, I thought I would try my hand at creating a cut-work style overlay with them! First, I traced out the various sizes of rectangles and squares onto a…

Hi there! I’m Noreen and I’m thrilled to be here today as a guest blogger!  I was introduced to scrapbooking at a Creative Memories home party waaaaaay back in 2001 and have been hooked ever since.

Hello, Connie Nichol here with a quick layout with one of my favourite photos from a trip to the Mayan Riviera a few years ago.  Just looking at it brings back the feel of the tropical sun and the smell of the ocean.  Sigh. I used a couple of products from Creative Memories Travel Collection to create this layout –  the solid core cardstock (I used lime green) and the matching cool serenity travel embellishments are perfect for scrapbooking beach vacation photos while the Bubbles Border maker cartridge adds a whimsical edge .       I spotted a Dina Wakley Bullseye stencil from Ranger Industries in my stash and used it to create the large round embellishments which in real life have very cool texture. I taped the stencil to a piece of cardstock and applied Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn distress inks with a sponge applicator. Then, with the…
