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.

A Sweet Treat

Upon flipping my calendar to today, I realized it is one of the SWEETEST days of the year.

National Chocolate Day.

Need I say more?

This prompted me to run out and buy some……wait for it……CHOCOLATE!!!

Are you like me, and always looking to bless someone with a sweet little treat every now and again?

Scrapbook Borders Inspired by Japanese Art

These beautiful Japonism Pastel papers and Natural Laser Cut Embellishment products were designed to honor the influence of Japanese art on western culture and feature both natural themes and subtle graphics in soft hues.

It was fun showing you how to do a few paper folding techniques, and incorporating them into the borders as well.

Create a few of your own borders, and share with us on social media using #creativememories .

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.

A Bright and Beautiful Shower

Today I am so excited to be sharing this project with you! I recently hosted a baby shower for a friend of mine and to create all of the party decor and elements I used the DIGITAL Cake My Day Collection!

Everything was pre-designed on my computer and then I sent it off to have it printed on cardstock at my local print shop. It was super fast, super fun to make, and best of all — it knocked the socks off the mama-to-be, which is always fun!

So, let’s get started! What I did first was downloaded the Cake My Day collection from the CM shop. Once the files were purchased, I uploaded them into my software and started to design!

Mi Amor Cards!

Today I want to share with you one of my absolute favourite fun folds for making cards. It’s called an easel fold. Every time I’ve given an easel card to a friend or family member they are always received with such awe and amazement – when really, it’s such an easy card to make!

So, I chose to use Mi Amor for these cards because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s sort of fun to go all out and make an extra special, handmade card to show the ones you love just how special they are!

As the photos show above – this fun fold will allow your cards to sit on display in a propped up position so that not only does your card front show, but also some of your inside embellishments and any greeting or message you choose to write below your embellishments!
