Hi friends! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here with a Holiday Countdown project that can be whipped up in time for December 1st! I’ve used Creative Memories’ Merry Little Christmas papers and coordinating embellishments which boast traditional Christmas colours in fresh new patterns – perfect for this fun holiday project! Each year I like to come up with a slightly different version of an Advent Calendar or Christmas Countdown. This year I’m using a sweet little tag pocket that I first shared with other Creative Memories Advisors when I visited Australia back in September. Since then, I’ve been sharing this easy pocket as a great Make & Take, a Halloween Treat package, a Thanksgiving table decoration and now as the holder for Christmas Countdown activities. The pockets are easy to make from a 6” x 6” square of double-sided patterned paper, and I’ve created coordinating Date Circles and Insert cards for you,…

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 friends! Noreen Smith from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here, sharing two layouts based on a single sketch featuring Harvest Delight and Wicked Cute collection by Creative Memories. As I mentioned last month, I create sketches to share on my own blog and YouTube Channel, but I ‘m always looking for new inspiration for my scrapbook pages. Did you know that every week, Creative Memories posts a Round-Up of sketches based on the layouts and projects shared that week on their blog? What an incredible, ongoing source for new ideas! I was itching to scrapbook as I couldn’t wait to play with the new fall and Halloween collections – Harvest Delight and Wicked Cute (just two more reasons to love fall!)… …and I wanted a fast and easy sketch that could fit three photos. I really liked this Creative Memories Sketch – I loved that it incorporated borders as part of the design…

Hello everyone! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share my sketch-to-page process with you! Some of you know that I design monthly sketches to share on my own blog and YouTube Channel, but I LOVE to work with sketches from other designers too! Kerry Engel creates fresh sketches for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Sketchy Gallery and I look forward to using them every month as a jumping-off point. Along with Kerry’s sketch I’ll be using a versatile new collection released this month by Creative Memories called Memoirs & Memories which features great neutral designs that can be used for so many different page themes (think heritage, travel, tribute and masculine pages!) and includes a Paper Pack, Stickers, Foiled Embellishments and Variety Mat Cards as well as an incredible album with pre-designed Fast2Fab pages! It’s gorgeous! I’m also going to be using the new Gears Chain Border Maker Cartridge to create…

Hey there! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here with some ideas for using not-so-standard sized papers to create standard 12” x 12” layouts. Creative Memories has an incredible line of products known as The Happy Album – a petite album that can be used as a journal, a planner or anything in between. New Happy Album Kits by Creative Memories are released each month and include various papers, embellishments, and instructions to create super cute spreads on the 6.75” x 10” Happy Album pages. They are so much fun! But sometimes I love the contents of the kits so much that I want to use them on my regular 12” x 12” scrapbook pages too. So, I’ve come up with two standard double-page spreads that make the most of the papers and stickers in the latest Happy Album Kit – #19 – leaving no paper scraps left behind! Since there are…

Hi friends! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here, and I’m so excited that Summer has actually arrived in the Northern hemisphere! To celebrate, Creative Memories has released a fantastic summer collection called Citrus Summer! It’s full of saturated summer colors and delicious patterns, images, and icons and I knew it would be just perfect to use with some photos of my boys and me at the water park from a few summers ago.   I love the look of a word-art cut-file, so I created one to share with all of you who visit the Creative Scrapbooker Blog!  The “Summer Fun!” cut-file is available for FREE in the shop on my own Blog, or on the Free Projects Tab of the Creative Scrapbooker website! Just download the zipped file to your computer and extract the cut-file image in JPG, PNG and SVG file formats. Then, follow the instructions for your electronic cutting machine…

Hello there! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here! If you took a vacation over spring break or have travel plans for this coming summer, then you’ll want to get your hands on the new Travel Log Collection from Creative Memories! It features fabulous papers, die-cut embellishments, stickers, mat cards, and handy pocket embellishments all in versatile grays, beiges, reds, blues and peach/coral tones. And the icons, imagery, and patterns will work for tropical or urban destinations, as well as all forms of the land, sea or air travel! We went on a great family vacation earlier this spring and it was the first time my two boys had been on an airplane! They loved it and have now been bitten by the travel bug – the whole world of travel has just opened up for them! I took a photo of them on their inaugural flight and paired a cut-file I created…

Hey there! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here! It’s kind of a Creative Memories tradition that a new Baby collection arrives each Spring, and the new Storytime Collection is so cute that I had to dig out my boys’ baby photos and create some new layouts! What I love about this collection is that everything mix and matches together beautifully and will work for both boy and girl layouts! It features two paper packs, two sticker packs, an embellishment pack, a variety mat card pack, gorgeous album covers, pre-designed refill pages, and even gift box bundles that would be the perfect gif for a new mom! I had two sweet photos of my son Grayson as a newborn that I wanted to feature, and Kerry Engel’s April Sketchy Challenge sketch was perfect to showcase them! I love finding a new sketch from Kerry every month on the CSM Sketchy Challenge Page for…
