Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans- Katelyn Grosart here today on the blog! Christmas is almost here and I’ve started to create some Christmas Cards. I usually don’t even think about creating Christmas cards until it’s too late and Christmas has passed, but this year, I’ve started early. Hopefully I will end up getting more created, but at least right now, I know I have two. I hope that my Christmas Cards will inspire you to recreate them for your loved ones and friends.  Using the Sugarplum Collection, Holly Decorative Punch and Poinsettia Punch from Creative Memories. As well as Fitted Circles die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. Here are the Christmas cards that I created.For the December 25th Christmas card, I combined the Poinsettia punch, Holly Decorative Border Punch, Sugarplum Embellishments, Sugarplum Designer Paper Pack and the Sugarplum Variety Mat Pack all from Creative Memories, to create…

Hello! Kim here today on a cold and wintery Alberta day! Today we are going to take a look at a scrapbooking company that has been near and dear to our hearts, for many years! We will shine our CSM Scrapbook Spotlight on Creative Memories! The New Creative Memories The new Creative Memories story begins in November of 2014 under the new ownership of Caleb Hayhoe. Caleb’s connection to Creative Memories however, started back in 1997 when his company was bringing scrapbooking  innovations to the Creative Memory team of that time.

New scrapbook products are being introduced monthly, insuring that your projects can be fresh and current. With all these new collections, certain products remain part of the core line.

Hello! Noreen Smith here, and I’m very happy to be on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today to share some Christmas projects using Creative Memories’ Sugarplum Collection! This sweet collection features a Paper Pack, Stickers, Embellishments, coordinating Vellum Papers, a foiled Album cover and Fast2Fab Pre-printed Album pages! The designs are inspired by holiday candy, décor and classic Christmas icons, as well as whimsical, playful patterns that also make it perfect for birthdays, Winter, babies and more.Some might comment that at first glance the collection doesn’t seem too Christmas-y as it features a lot of pastels. But of you remember that colors like pink and mint green are just tinted versions of the more traditional Christmas colors of red and green, you’ll realize that they really are quite versatile! Since there were some cute candy and gingerbread house icons in the sticker pack, I used the collection to document our…

“Double double, toil & trouble”…. Tim Hortons? Shakespeare?… No, Creative Memories. Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog having double the fun with two layouts and Creative Memories Toil & Trouble Collection. Feeling Punchy The colors in this collection are rich and yummy; teal and orange are so fun for fall. The coordinating cardstock is perfect for punching out embellishments or to use as a base. Creative Memories has some fabulous punches, the pumpkin one just makes me grin. The footprint punch was probably made with beach layouts in mind but  I punched out the foot prints on the bottom edge and then placed a black piece of paper behind the cut-out to create some creepy ghost like foot prints. Are you scared??? The fence and pumpkin punches layer nicely. How cute are teal pumpkins? To create more depth I inked all my edges in Ranger  vintage photo…
