Hi there! I’m Noreen and I’m thrilled to be here today as a guest blogger!  I was introduced to scrapbooking at a Creative Memories home party waaaaaay back in 2001 and have been hooked ever since. I became a Creative Memories advisor in 2005 and have enjoyed helping lots and lots of women organize and share their photos. I also love helping people inject a little creativity into all their papercrafting projects! Today I’m happy to share a few project ideas featuring new products that were released by Creative Memories this month.  The Mi Amor collection features Paper, Embellishments and Stickers that are perfect to celebrate all kinds of love – romantic love, love of family & friends, and even love of pets, home or favorite hobbies. I love the sophisticated designs and rich colors – cranberry, black and white.  Of course Mi Amor is the perfect collection to create…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with a quick layout with one of my favourite photos from a trip to the Mayan Riviera a few years ago.  Just looking at it brings back the feel of the tropical sun and the smell of the ocean.  Sigh. I used a couple of products from Creative Memories Travel Collection to create this layout –  the solid core cardstock (I used lime green) and the matching cool serenity travel embellishments are perfect for scrapbooking beach vacation photos while the Bubbles Border maker cartridge adds a whimsical edge .       I spotted a Dina Wakley Bullseye stencil from Ranger Industries in my stash and used it to create the large round embellishments which in real life have very cool texture. I taped the stencil to a piece of cardstock and applied Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn distress inks with a sponge applicator. Then, with the…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a simple scrapbook layout featuring a beautiful patterned paper line from Creative Memories stamps and digital cut files from Quietfire Design cut with the Sizzix Eclips 2. and some stitching with the Brother Sewing Machine The scrapbooking process is a little different for everyone, but when I start with a Quietfire Design quote stamp, I am totally inspired by the quote and go from there.  I looked through my photos and found this one of my friend Jackie with a massive hydrangea bush from 2013 that I thought would do the quote justice.  Next, I selected the beautiful Creative Memories Watercolour Paper Pack and Watercolor Love Embellishments to form the basis of the layout.  The soft colours and patterns are just beautiful.  Although romantic, the papers work for a lot of other photographs too. Lastly, I considered how I might accent the page with…

Hello! Kim here, just logging in to share my take on this month’s Sketchy Challenge! This month, for the most part, I stayed true to Kelly’s sketch. As always, a sketch is a fun place to start creating from…especially if your mojo is on hiatus. I pulled out my “A Year to Remember” collection from Creative Memories, and had fun going through the many different embellishments to find the ones that I felt worked best. I really like the colour palette of this collection, and look forward to pulling it out again. Here’s a detail shot of the banners. I cut between each banner, so I could add some texture and movement to it. I also curled and distressed the edge of some of my paper…I love texture and layers, but still need my pages to be flat enough to fit in my albums. Another layer I have added but…
