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.

I love it that I can create an entire scrapbook album in just a few hours with Creative Memories Fast2Fab Predesigned Albums. I just adhere my photos to the pages, add some journaling and that’s it! It’s great when I want to finish an album quickly. The cool thing is that there are coordinating embellishments, stickers and papers available when I want to dress my pages up. Today I’m going to share two scrapbook layouts from the Natural Elegance Fast2Fab album with you. One basic layout and one dressed up version.

One Memory, Three Ways – Wedding Edition!

Whether you are a simple scrapper, a pocket scrapper or a decorative scrapper, the beautiful Natural Elegance Collection will help you create gorgeous layouts that effortlessly highlight your wedding photos! I used the lovely papers, sticker, embellishments and slide-in cards from the collection with my own wedding photos to create an almost instant “naked” page on the beloved Black Scrapbook Pages, a slide-in page using the versatile Multi-Pocket Pages and a more traditional layout where I got to have fun with layering decorative papers & borders and making embellishments clusters.

Create The Perfect Wedding Guest Book With Creative Memories’ Natural Elegance Fast2Fab Album

With two weddings on my 2017 calendar, I’m already thinking about wedding shower gifts. My standard gift for a bride-to-be is a Creative Memories Fast2Fab album for the newlywed’s wedding and/or honeymoon photos. This time, though, I’m thinking of doing something a little different. Instead of handing each bride-to-be an unfinished scrapbook album, I plan to use their engagement photos to create the perfect wedding guest book. Creative Memories’ Natural Elegance Wedding Collection makes it so easy to create a guest book for your own wedding or to give as a gift.  Here are a few page ideas to get you started:
