Boo!!  Can you believe it? The local stores are all set up for the trick or treaters, so I guess I need to start thinking ahead as well!  I thought I would make some special little treat bags for the young goblins that show up at my door.

The Toil and Trouble Collection is so bright!  I just love it! It’s perfect to get you thinking ahead to Halloween.

Send A Note To Say Hello

I always have my Creative Memories goodies all packed and ready to go with me. Currently,  I am spending my days in our RV out of town while my hubby works.  I love the versatility of Creative Memories products, everything you need to make amazing layouts and cards are at your fingertips.  I do have a well stocked craft studio in my home but I don’t like hauling all my goodies with me.  Everything I need to create can be found with Creative Memories products!

I don’t know about you, but I love to make and send cards to loved ones to hopefully brighten their day.  I do not have a stash of cards here in the RV so I decided to make this set of four note cards just to have on hand.

Earth Day Project – Make a Mini Album with CM Album Packaging

Earth Day is a time for us to remember the environment and how important it is for us to protect it. While people honor it different ways such as turning off the lights for Earth Hour or picking up trash on the side of the road, I have a little tradition of my own…

And it of course includes crafting!

Easter 2017 Treat Gift Boxes

Easter 2017 is just around the corner. With that, we are hopping around looking for Easter treats for our co-workers and family. We certainly do our fair share of eating sweet treats around the Creative Memories office. Rarely is the candy dish empty (or maybe it is empty all too often and we’re constantly refilling it; I guess it depends on how you look at it.)

Let us show you how to create a most-adorable gift box for those special little treats using just one piece of Cardstock and one piece of Designer Print Paper. Or, just create the base box and decorate the outer portion of the box with paper and a cute border.
