Hi friends! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com to share a fun scrapbook layout featuring the new Staycation Collection and Dine Border Punch from Creative Memories! Staycation is a collection that celebrates staying close to home and enjoying all that our local area has to offer and it’s perfect for all the photos of family nights, baking sessions, backyard parties, and virtual celebrations that we have all experienced over the past year! And the Dine Border Punch is so much fun to documents family dinners, BBQs, take-out meals, or anything else having to do with FOOD! To create this layout, punch two borders with the Dine Border Punch from the kraft-colored patterned paper in the Staycation Paper Pack. Mount them onto two strips of green arrow paper with Repositionable Adhesive. TIP: Repositionable Adhesive is awesome for adhering detailed borders as the tiny dots of adhesive only stick to the paper! Cut…

Hi friends! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share a single-page scrapbook layout featuring a brand-new collection by Creative Memories – Emerald Gemstone! This stunning collection is inspired by the wonders of nature and features patterns such as starry night skies, aurora borealis, bold leaves, peacock “eyespots,” mineral deposits, water droplets, crystals, and watercolour washes in a radiant palette of navy and royal blue, teal, white, emerald green and touches of yellow-green. There is a Patterned Paper Pack, a Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack, Stickers, Variety Mat Cards, and Laser-Cut Borders in the collection, as well as a gorgeous Album and Fast2Fab Pages, and I knew it would be perfect to use with some photos of a beautiful river valley and waterfalls from Kananaskis Provincial Park here in Alberta. I also wanted to use the new Gemstone Border Maker Cartridge as its unique shape works well to highlight and repeat the jagged shapes…

One of the greatest forms of flattery is to imitate or copy. In the world of scrapbooking or cardmaking, we are always flooding our brains with inspiration from several sources. My favourites source is Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Whether browsing between the covers of the most recent issue or scrolling through their Facebook and Instagram feeds, their shares and styles always seem to match my own. Recently on Instagram, this card by @rlbreaks was shared and I loved it! It did not take me long to try to find a way to imitate it with the supplies I had on hand. It was a simple card to recreate in multiples to meet my Valentine’s needs! So be inspired! Imitate and copy with your own twist, but ALWAYS be sure to credit your source! That way they know they have inspired, it’s a WIN-WIN! Supplies: Ranger Industries: Distress Oxide Ink & Archival…

Happy Holidays! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share a couple of whimsical (and super easy) Christmas cards with you! You might remember that we made up the Creative Memories Holly Jolly Card Kit together during this Facebook Live on the CSM Facebook Page way back in August, and after I made them I thought I had all the cards I needed. BUT, when I saw these adorable die-cut Embellishments and fun Christmas Paper Pack from the Creative Memories Christmas Spirit Collection, I couldn’t resist playing around and creating a few more! Let me show you how to make these fun and festive cards. For the Snowman card you’ll need: a standard size card base (8.5” x 5.5”) cut from Scarlet Cardstock a piece of White Cardstock cut to 4” x 5.25” a piece of Red and Green Striped Christmas Spirit Paper cut to 4” x 5.25” Snowman, Tree, The Magic…

Hi! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here with a post-Thanksgiving Layout featuring the ThankFULL Theme Pack from Creative Memories! I know I’ve said it before, but I love Theme Packs: they’ve got plenty of supplies to create a few thematic layouts, but not so many that you have leftovers like you would from a full collection. They are available for lots of different themes and occasions, and the price point can’t be beat – just $12.00 (CA) for four sheets of double sided paper, one sheet of coordinating cardstock plus sticker embellishments! ThankFULL was one of the first Theme Packs Creative Memories introduced last fall, but it’s still one of my favorites with its slightly non-traditional colour scheme, cute stickers and great cut-apart sheet! I used photos from last Thanksgiving for this pretty layout, choosing one 6” x 4” and printing two other landscape photos in 4” x 3” size. I…

Hello! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share some ideas, tips and tricks for using simple tools to create a fun, custom layout! We scrapbookers and papercrafters love, love, love our tools and are always excited to try out the latest and greatest, but it can be very satisfying to get back to basics and create with simple tools like stencils or templates, scissors and pens. I had lots of fun using the Apple Recipe Template, Hello, Autumn Journal Template, Micro-Tip Scissors, Navy Dual-Tip Pen,  Alphabet Stamp Kit System and Celebrations Title Stamp along with the lovely Hello, Autumn Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack to create an apple-themed layout! Here’s how to make it: First, trace the outside edge of the apple on the Apple Recipe Template onto the rich Crimson Cardstock and cut it out with the Micro-Tip Scissors. Trace the leaf and stem shape onto the neutral monochromatic and green…

Hi there! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here today to share some ideas for back to school layouts AND some FREE cut-files with you! Sadly, summer is rapidly ending and it’s time for the kiddos to get ready to head back to school. Since Covid-19 is still a factor, school might look very different this year – some jurisdictions are opening “regular” school, some are only doing remote learning and many are offering a combination of the two. No matter what your child’s first day back looks like, be sure to document it and tell the story of this very unique year! My own boys will primarily be doing remote learning and will be heading back in early September. For these layouts, I pulled out some photos of my boys and I heading back to school from LAST September to use with the fantastic Book Smarts Theme Pack from Creative Memories.…
