Hey there! It’s Noreen Smith here to share a fun layout using all three colorful variations of the new Totally Tonal papers and stickers from Creative Memories! I love these new tonal collections and how they match perfectly with CM’s exclusive new mill-run cardstock! During each quarter of 2023, CM will offer tonal collections in three different colors, so you’ll want to purchase them throughout the year so you can use them with ALL the coordinating cardstock and other collections! I love being able to mix and match perfectly! For Quarter 1 (January through March) the three Totally Tonal collections feature the colors Baby Blue, Island Waters and Purple Ice! Each set is gorgeous on it’s own, but I had so much fun using all three colorways in my layout today! My family visited a spectacular indoor light display back in December called “Glow YYC”. Of course, there were lots…

Hi scrappy friends! Noreen Smith here to share a wonderful wintery layout with you today! Winter has definitely arrived where I live – we are in firmly the deep freeze, and we’ve already had over 10 inches of snow so far in November. But there’s no denying that a snowy day in Alberta – no matter how cold it is! – is beautiful, and I am lucky to live close to some of the most magical places to enjoy winter. I pulled out some photos of a winter getaway to the Chateau Lake Louise from a couple of years ago to use on this layout featuring the pretty Polar Lights collection from Creative Memories! Here is my layout. I absolutely love this color combination of various shades of blue paired with turquoise, icy purple and a touch of neutral beige. It’s perfect to capture all the beautiful colors of winter…

Happy Hauntings! Noreen Smith here to share another Halloween layout using the new Happy Hauntings Collection from Creative Memories! I am so enjoying using this moody, more sophisticated Halloween collection that features a striking Paper Pack, coordinating Stickers and intricate Laser Cut Embellishments! Even in scrapbooking, sometimes serendipity steps in to make a perfect match: when I saw the “It’s Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus” sticker in the Happy Hauntings Sticker pack, I knew I would use it on a layout referencing one of my favorite movies. Then when I saw Jennifer’s October Sketch, I knew it would be perfect to use, as the three 2” x 2” photos were just right to feature some little headshot photos of the three Sanderson sisters from the movie Hocus Pocus and Hocus Pocus 2! Here’s Jennifer’s October Sketch: And here is my take on the sketch using the Happy Hauntings collection! And…

Hey there! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com to share a fun and not-too-scary Halloween layout using the new Happy Hauntings Collection and Spider Webs Frame Punch from Creative Memories! Halloween is definitely one of my favorite things about Fall, and the Halloween scrapbook product collections get me every single time! The new Happy Hauntings collection – released just a few days ago – is very sophisticated and moody and I couldn’t wait to play with it! I am hoping to use the finished layouts for some photos I’ll be taking this coming Halloween. Here are the easy steps to make this layout: Line up the edge of the orange Halloween icons paper from the Happy Hauntings Paper Pack with the silver line on the base plate of the Spider Webs Frame Punch. Punch, then move the punched shape until it lines up with the picture printed on the base plate. Repeat…

Hi there! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to get you in a back-to-school mood with the new “Back to School” Collection from Creative Memories! It’s that time of year that the kids are heading back to school and this is the LAST year of school for my older son Grayson – where does time go? In anticipation of his graduation next spring, I am excited to create a School Days Scrapbook Album for him as a gift! I’m going to be using the fun composition style Ebony Back to School Album Cover with a Custom Foiled Spine, then filling it up with Large Pocket Pages, Multi-Pocket Pages and 8.5” x 11” Pocket Pages and papers from the fantastic new Back to School Annual Paper Pack. The album itself is going to be super-fast to set up, and then I’ll be able to spend a little time over the next few months…

 Well hello! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here and I have just returned from Minneapolis where I attended the first Creative Memories Creative Minds Conference! It was absolutely inspiring and I came away with lots of new ideas and excitement for the future of CM! I also came home with new products – the Serene Waters Collection launched this past Monday and all the conference attendees received it! The vivid color palette is stunning and captures the essence of a tropical paradise, and you will love it for all of your beach vacation photos!I was so excited to use the new Serene Waters Paper Pack and the fun new Friendly Fish Decorative Border Punch so I took inspiration from this month’s Sketch, which is the first one by Jennifer Edwardson who is taking over the duties of creating the monthly sketch from Kerry Engel. I send my thanks and appreciation to…

Howdy! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share four ideas and tips for making up the fantastic paper Mini Photo Albums from Creative Memories! I love this new Cherish, Treasure and Appreciate You Bundle and with Mother’s and Father’s Day coming up, these make the perfect little gift albums to celebrate Mom and Dad – or any other special people in your life! The bundle features two 8” x 8” paper Mini Photo Albums – one with a soft, more feminine palette and the other with bolder, masculine colors – and a coordinating sticker sheet with sayings like “Best Mom Ever” and “My Hero”.

Hello! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com today to share a fun and crafty layout with you today! Since I was in New Orleans back in November, and Mardi Gras is just around the corner, this is the perfect time to share a layout featuring the new “Let the Good Times Roll” Paper Pack and Masquerade Border Punch from Creative Memories! These items (and a gorgeous coordinating Album cover!) were created to commemorate the CM Incentive Trip for Advisors to New Orleans Louisiana (NOLA) that I was lucky enough to attend! The purple, green and gold are traditional Mardi Gras colors and the page of cut aparts featured all the fun things we did during our time there!  Inspired by the mask in one of the cut aparts and on the Border Punch, I decided to create my own larger paper mask for a layout about visiting the Mardi Gras Museum where…
