 SPRING is in the air and that means – RENOS! Check out this fabulous Home Improvement layout that Noreen Smith designed featuring the Creative Memories Riveting Collection. Here are the basic step-by-steps Cut a 3.5″ × 6″ rectangle from the Riveting light woodgrain paper. Use a pen and ruler to mark 2″ down from the top on either side of the rectangle, and 1″ in from either side along the bottom edge of the rectangle. Place the paper rectangle on the 13″ × 13″ Cutting Mat. Align the top of the largest Rectangle Custom Cutting System Patterns template with the 2″ mark, and the side of the template with the 1″ mark. Place the red blade in the template track, press down, and move the blade along the template to cut out the paper shape as shown. Repeat on the opposite side of the rectangle to create the paintbrush handle.…

Hi! It’s Noreen Smith here to share a road-trip worthy scrapbook layout with featuring the Creative Memories Wanderlust Collection! Have you hit the open road this summer, or are you planning to? Or maybe you have other travel plans in mind? Creative Memories Wanderlust Collection is such a versatile travel-themed collection that will work for your layouts no matter if you’re documenting a road trip, cruise, flight overseas or local camping trip! And right now, during the fantastic You-Pick-It Promo, you can get a set of unique Wanderlust Fast2Fab Inspired pre-decorated papers, an exclusive Luggage Decorative Border Punch and matching Wanderlust Accessory Stickers to make your Wanderlust collection even more versatile! The papers are printed on one side with decorative borders and have an overall pattern on the reverse side.

Hey there! It’s Noreen Smith here to share a layout using one of the new U.S. Destinations Paper Packs and Stickers from Creative Memories with you! The four destinations featured – as voted on by Creative Memories Advisors! – are Florida, Great Lakes, New York City and Washington, D.C., and of course these new paper packs and stickers will be great for documenting your trips to those destinations. But you might be surprised at how well they will work with lots of other types of layouts too! For example, my family and I recently spent some Spring break on Vancouver Island where we enjoyed hiking the Wild Pacific Trail and visiting the historic Amphitrite Lighthouse near Ucluelet, British Columbia. I knew the U.S. Destinations Great Lakes Paper Pack and Stickers featured lighthouses, so I set out to see if I could make the fun Great Lakes papers work with my…

Hi all! It’s Noreen Smith here to share an unbe-leaf-ably easy layout idea using Creative Memories products! The lovey and intricate Unbe-Leaf-Able Recipe Template launched last spring and was such a hit that CM decided to create a coordinating paper pack and border punch to make it even easier to create a show-stopping layout! Normally you trace the shapes of the template onto paper and cut them out with Micro-Tip Scissors, but with this limited edition promo Unbe-Leaf-Able Border punch, all you have to do is punch a row of the pretty leaves, snip them apart and place them according to their location on the recipe template! Easy and fast! And of course you can use the pretty border on it’s own in lots of other layouts too! (And psst…while the recipe template is part of the main CM lineup of products, the limited edition promo Unbe-Leaf-Able Bundle is only…

Hi all! It’s Noreen Smith here with a layout featuring the Scrap Happy 2 collection from Creative Memories! As the name suggests, it is the ideal collection for documenting photos of all the fun you have while enjoying this wonderful hobby of ours! Back in 2018, CM released the original Scrap Happy collection with the signature CM icons and blue color, but this version is brighter and even more fun with the inclusion of purples, greens, yellows and oranges! It’s going to work so well with all your photos of scrapbooking crops, retreats and special events – in fact it was perfect to use with my photos from Creative Scrapbooker’s Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival last May! (Pssst…we had so much fun – you do not want to miss out on attending this year’s carnival! Head over to the link for all the info – CLICK HERE) Here are the easy…

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…
