Retreats, Crops and Other Events

Scrapbook Retreat SpaceThe heart of our business is, of course, getting photos into albums so they can be revisited and treasured for years to come. One spectacular bonus to this richly rewarding hobby is the time spent with other creative folks when you attend an event where the focus is on finishing albums.

CM Advisor Candace Bouldin shares some great tips and advice for anyone considering hosting their own crop or attending a cropping event on her blog. She offers super advice on all aspects – even how to organize and prep layouts before you even leave the house!

Fran Smitherman also recently shared a great article on how rewarding it can be as a member of The Scrapbooking Community. Another great read on how important photo albums are as a lifelong reminder of relationships as well as forming new ones, too.

We love hearing stories of folks who have connected and become lifelong friends as a result of scrapbooking. What’s your favorite connection you’ve made because of scrapbooking?

Themed Albums: Vol I, Travel

Creative Memories Predesigned Travel AlbumThanks to album expert and CM Advisor Fran Smitherman, we’re pleased to present to you a series of blog posts where we’ll be covering themed albums as our topic of focus. In this, her first in the series, Fran is showcasing Travel Albums. Of course, it’s one of the heaviest photo-taking ventures one can experience and it ultimately becomes difficult to know where to start once you return home with cards full of beautiful photos. Fran offers some wonderful ideas and suggestions on getting started. Check out Fran’s post here:
