“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” – Milton Berle
The new Creative Memories opened its doors again in the United States and Canada in November 2014. After an outpouring of support and love from Advisors and Customers, the entrepreneurial-minded CM team has continued to grow strong and debt-free, opening in Australia in November 2015. The nimble home office team continues to release innovative scrapbooking products and new product designs each month, thriving on the energy shared by Advisors and Customers for the Creative Memories brand.
The new Creative Memories story begins back in 1997 when a growing company called Creative Memories approached Caleb Hayhoe’s product design and sourcing company to add new product innovations to their scrapbook business. At that time, Caleb’s company employed over 300 people in Asia and was a leading supplier to the cosmetics industry. Caleb was intrigued with the opportunity and made the trek from Hong Kong to St. Cloud. Within minutes of meeting the CM team he “got it,” fell in love with the mission and found there was mutual respect for the importance of outstanding product quality. The relationship flourished and over the years Caleb attended many Showcases, workshops and parties, developing a deep admiration for the spunk and passion of the Consultants.
