Happy Tuesday! Kim here with a fun Aloha layout I finished up not too long ago. Do you ever find a collection of papers and embellishments and immediately know what photo[s] you would use with it? I LOVE when that happens, because that’s a big part of the creative process taken care of…sometimes the hardest! This was just the case when I saw the Sun-Kissed collection from Creative Memories! We were fortunate to get to Hawaii for the very first time in February…this paper pack and matching embellishments screamed ALOHA to me! I instantly knew what I wanted to do with this layout, so it came together quite quick…which is so not my norm! I started out with a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock, my favourite base to work on. It’s 110lb cardstock and is a wonderful sturdy base to layer on. I trimmed it down so that I could…

This week we are visiting the winter 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. In this issue, Christy Riopel did some SERIOUS designing with the Creative Memories Original Border Punch system. SHE ROCKED IT!  Here is just a sample of one the projects she created for her regular column – The Tool Junkie. This was the very last article that Christy wrote for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine before her passing in August of 2016. Using the Creative Memories Border Punch System to Create a Stencil 1. Load a cartridge that makes a set of holes as a border. Some punches work better for this than others. 2. Punch a strip into a thicker piece of cardstock. 3. Using a Clearsnap ColorBox stylus and white foam tip, sponge ink through the holes onto your project. 4. Repeat with other colours to finish off the background. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of…

Hi everyone! Noreen Smith  here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com with a layout using the super fun summer themed Sun-Kissed Papers, Embellishments & Stickers, the new embossed Tropical Leaf Punch, and some sunshine-y Cut Files that I created and want to share with you today!Creative Memories’ Sun-Kissed Collection was inspired by the cool art-deco vibe of Miami’s South Beach and features colors and imagery that will work well with any tropical vacation, zoo, beach, pool or outdoor photos! Besides the paper, stickers and embellishments I‘m showing you today, the collection also includes a gorgeous Turquoise foiled Album Cover and pre-designed Fast 2 Fab Album Pages. I had fun combining the papers with some recent photos of my older son enjoying the much-anticipated spring weather! In one photo he was sitting with his face turned towards the warm spring sunshine and it reminded me of the Walt Whitman quote – “Keep your face always towards…

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…
