Luxurious Layered Cards using Forever Yours Scrapbook Collection

Creative Memories new Forever Yours Collection was released just in time for the spring/summer wedding season.  I know that I’ll be attending a few bridal showers and two weddings this summer – one being my son’s – and I’ll need some cards for gift-giving.

I created two beautiful layered cards with lots of texture and pretty details using the Forever Yours Paper, Stickers, Embellishments, Laser Cut Embellishments and Vellum Paper.  Our new 4-Way Corner and Hole Punch added the final pièce de résistance to these cards.

Woodland Whimsy Baby Samplers

The Woodland Whimsy Baby Boy and Baby Girl Collections just might be my favorite product line yet!  Both collections are full of versatile prints and incredibly cute embellishments and stickers.  However, these collections are not just for baby photos.  The woodland theme is also perfect for any type of outdoor photos.  In fact, I think that the collections are neutral enough to be used for almost any type of photos.

As always, Creative Memories is right on trend with these collections.  The woodland theme is currently a popular motif for baby nurseries, and both of my samplers would make a cute decor item.  They could be used with an easel on a dresser or framed for the wall.  The samplers would also make a great introduction page to a baby scrapbook album.
