Of course, having your camera along to try to capture it all is part of the adventure! When you’re back home, spreading out your pictures and remembering the day, the Adventure Collection’s earthy designs, colors and images will help you tell the story in vivid detail.

Do you know someone who is going on an adventure?
Perhaps they are graduating from high school or college, going on a mission trip, or moving out on their own for the first time—and you want to wish them well in said ADVENTURE, this is the perfect card to create.

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.
I was recently at a baby shower for a friend.

The only thing that wasn’t well-thought-out and customized? The baby shower cards.
As I watched her open card after card and gift card after gift card (all bearing the same company name and image, mind you), it dawned on me how special a handmade baby shower card could be.
