Worldwide Virtual Crop project created by Kelly Brewer-Balch from Canada.

Kelly Brewer-Balch has always loved taking photos, so when she attended her first Creative Memories class in 1998, she knew she wanted to share the Creative Memories mission and document the stories of her family! Fast forward to 2022 with shelves of personal albums completed, she enjoys hosting retreats, learning new techniques, completing albums and sharing the joy of preserving family memories with others. 

Here's some inspiration

Elaine Hepburn has had a passion for preserving pictures and stories since she was a young girl. Elaine has been with Creative Memories as a customer and then as an Advisor for almost 20 years. The joy of helping a customer create an album filled with lasting memories fuels her memory-preservation passion. And the best part has been building a team of like-minded individuals across Canada and developing relationships.

  1. I love the angles on the sides of the layout. Instructions for creating those side borders would be appreciated.

  2. This layout showcases more photos with a simpler design, the angles are quite clever and complements the whole design. Awesome idea with the Wanderlust paper!
