My name is Andrea Stransky and I have spent the last 10 years working at CM. I started off in a temporary position in the Digital Customer Service Department helping with the Digital Center and software. A short time later, I was offered a permanent position in the Consultant Services Department. From there, I became a Trainer for other CSR’s helping them to deliver excellent service to all of our Consultants and Customers. Like many of you, I have been alongside CM throughout the many changes over the years. I took, what I like to call, a 6-month “vacation” from CM as Ahni & Zoe was shutting down. I enrolled back into college to finish my degree in Business Management.
I can track my love for paper and photography back to high school, when I joined the yearbook staff at East Chapel Hill High School in North Carolina. Digital photography was in its beginning stages and most of our page layouts were still created like a scrapbook, cropping printed photos and laying out pages to mail into the yearbook company to print.
When I think of Halloween, I think of the cute little adorable ways in which you can gift candy or trinkets!
What I love most about this treat bag is that you can create it any size you would like. From small to big!
Step 1: Cut a piece of paper into a rectangle. (I cut mine to 6″ x 10″)
Step 2: Fold one side in about 1/3 of the way. Place adhesive on the edge of the folded piece. Fold the other side of the paper over to cover the adhesive.
Step 3: Fold the bottom over. (This will be the thickness of the bag-I folded mine over 1-1/2″)
Step 4: Open the bottom of the bag as shown, creasing the edges of the bottom.
Step 5: Fold one side of the bottom, so it is just past the halfway crease on the bottom. Add adhesive to the edge of this flap.
Step 6: Fold the other flap on the bottom over the top of the adhesive.
Step 7: Open the bag. Fill with goodies.
Step 8: Create a page topper to fit over the top. Adhere to the top.
Step 9: Punch holes, add tag, and tie with ribbon.
Maybe you create a special treat bag for your kids or grandkids, or maybe you give special treats to your co-workers at the office. Whoever your recipients are, they will feel more than loved when they receive a treat bag in which you put your love and special touch into.
Hi all! My name is Amy Crandall and I am a distribution specialist, which consists of being a machine operator, bookmaker, shipper, and miscellaneous office duties. I joined Creative Memories in 2002, Valentine’s day to be exact.
Picking, packing, and shipping your orders is one of my daily duties. I also run a few of the machines that create the components of your albums before we put them together with tender loving care. We have a small crew, but we go where the work is, flexing to different areas to get the work done. It’s my “at work family” and I wouldn’t trade them for anything! My twin sister, Beth, also works within our small team. And we actually get along…lol!
The first 12 months of a baby’s life are filled with precious moments that need to be photographed and saved. You may have noticed the wonderful photo trend that’s encouraging moms and dads to document a baby’s first 12 months in creative ways.
I’m going to share with you how you can create a baby’s first year album as a gift for a friend or family member. As an avid scrapbooker, I absolutely love sharing my completed albums with those I love. Not everyone in my life shares my passion for paper-crafting, but they all see the value in having memories preserved. Plus, they love spending time looking through the photos and reading the journaling. As you can imagine, when a completed album is gifted to them the response of appreciation is overwhelming!
Its title describes it perfectly! The collection has a very warm palette using earthy tones. While there are a few leaf embellishments, the overall palette leans too much more than just fall. Think about photos from a day at the park, a trip abroad, or even a family reunion. The Painted Harvest collection will suit all of those scrapbooking needs.
In Canada we are looking forward to turkey, pumpkin pie, and special time spent with family and friends this upcoming weekend!
Painted Harvest is such a stunning product collection, I couldn’t help but use some to spruce up my kitchen table for Thanksgiving.
I enjoy adding a personal touch into my home decor. I find a very easy and economical way to do it is through papercrafting! With a small amount of designer paper, some cardstock, a punch or two, a few ABC/123 stickers, and adhesive you’re all set!
