Hi everyone! Noreen Smith here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com sharing a couple of layouts using the gorgeous Spring Garden Papers & Stickers and the versatile Double Heart Punch! Have you seen all that’s new with CM lately? The new catalog launched April 1st and was chock full of new goodies, and now only a couple of weeks later Creative Memories has launched even more new products – the lovely Secret Garden Collection!  I fell hard for the beautiful purples, turquoises and greens in this collection, not to mention the lovely floral, geometric and watercolor patterns. The stickers feature beautiful butterfly, heart and flower icons, and there is a whole sheet of word-art sayings and banners which will be perfect to add to layouts and cards!

Hello! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com. Spring is right around the corner (although you’d never know it from the amount of snow still on the ground in Calgary!) and with it come so many wonderful events to celebrate – Easter, Spring Birthdays, Weddings, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Graduations, First Communions & Confirmations, and Mother’s Day…Blessed events for sure! I thought it would be great to have a bunch of cards made up ahead of time for some of these lovely celebrations using Creative Memories stunning Full Bloom and Timber Paper Packs, along with the coordinating Full Bloom Embellishments and Stickers. I love the juxtaposition of the pretty pastel florals and the rough-hewn wood patterns – it reminds me of a bouquet of freshly picked wildflowers set in a mason jar on a rough farmhouse table! And, I love the way these cards turned out.For those of us who don’t have a…
