Loving the Bee Mine Collection

Hi everyone. I am back with another layout featuring the Bee Mine collection. For those of you who do not know me, I LOVE patterned paper. Often at times, I have a difficult time throwing my scraps away for this reason. For this layout, I decided to play with all of the patterns in the Bee Mine collection.

Archiver’s Borders of Days Gone By

Archiver's-Heritage-Borders-Creative-Memories

I love working with old photos, especially when I know the names and even some of the stories that go along with them. I will admit it can be challenging to effectively arrange on a page a group of old delicate black and white photos, in all sizes and conditions.

That’s why I love the new Archiver’s™ collection. The muted color scheme and delicate laser cut embellishments blend so well with the old photos and eras so they complement, not distract, and help pull together a unified page. These borders serve to recreate the feel of an era gone by, to balance pages full of well-loved photos and the memories they evoke.

Bee Mine Valentine Scrapbook Layout

Bee-Mine-Valentine-Scrapbook-Layout-Creative-Memories

Valentine’s Day is coming and Creative Memories has the cutest collection to document those lovey dovey or not so lovey dovey moments! Have you seen the Bee Mine collection? Oh, my goodness, it is the cutest collection ever and I am so excited I got to play with it. I really like the tiny print patterns on a few of the papers so I selected a few of those sheets for my layout. And the stickers and layered embellishments are gorgeous! A girl can never have too many embellishments. Those frames were calling my name the moment I saw them! I couldn’t wait to use them. Can you hear the excitement in my words? Seriously, I love it.

Archiver’s™ Happy 80th Birthday Mini Album

Archiver's™-Happy-80th-Birthday-Mini-Album

Hi everyone! My family and I just celebrated my grandmother’s 80th birthday and since she loves mini albums, I decided to make one for her. The party was somewhat a surprise. We just told her we were going to celebrate her birthday at my sister’s, but she had no idea that there would be family members traveling from New York, Kentucky and Virginia to celebrate her big day! She was truly touched that so many people cared about her. She made us all cry when she walked through the front door and I am sad that I did not get the photo!

The newest Archiver’s collection is perfect for the mini 2×3 Pocket Album! I love the patterns, color palette and laser die cuts in this gorgeous collection. Ah, it’s so pretty! I just love the rose patterned paper!

How to Create the Bee Mine Arrow Border Layout

Bee-Mine-Arrow-Border-Layout-Complete

Scrapbook papers and embellishments have personalities, and Bee Mine is energizing! If you’ve been feeling a little rundown after the hustle and bustle of the holidays, get your hands on the Bee Mine collection and you’ll feel ready to create an entire album. When Melissa designed this fun Arrow Border Layout, I had to give it a try. I loved the way that she used three different colors of cardstock behind each arrow in the border design.

Memories to Treasure

Good morning everyone! I am here to share a project I created using the beautiful Creative Memories Archiver’s™ collection. I love this heritage scrapbook collection so much that I asked my 80-year-old grandmother to send me some photos to scrapbook using it. It is amazing how much a great photo can do for a layout… and how much vintage-themed scrapbook supplies can do to accent those photos and tell a story! Here, take a look…

Bee Mine Borders

Bee-Mine-Borders-Creative-Memories

A little bit retro, and a whole lot of bright, colorful fun. That’s how I’d describe the new Bee Mine collection. Pair it with the new Daisy Bouquet Punch and the Arrow Border Maker Cartridge and you’ve got a party!

I had so much fun playing with the bright colors and patterns on this super cold and gray Minnesota winter day. It’s great therapy for the winter blues. Give it a try! You’ll be smiling in no time.

Easy Steps to Design an Album

Imagine-Fast2Fab-Album-Creative-Memories-Header

With New Year’s around the corner, it is time to start thinking out of the box! With traditional scrapbooking there is lots of creativity and fun!  What if we simplified things to get an extra album or two created in 2018?

I love the Fast2Fab™ albums for just that reason.  For that vacation or gift album that would be impossible to do along with my chronological albums so, I turn to the Fast2Fab™ albums!

Holiday Moments with the Imagine Collection

holiday-moments-layout-imagine-collection-creative-memories

Hello everyone. Today, I am back with another layout using the Imagine Collection. I can’t get enough of this collection. It’s such a fun collection and I just love the colors and all the stickers!

A few weeks ago, Edward begged me to put the tree up. I was tired so I told him he was totally decorating the tree. All I did was pull the ornaments out for him and he went to town! I really thought he’d get tired of decorating the tree after a few ornaments, but he surprised me… He decorated the entire tree! It was a nice break for me! Ha.

Never Grow Up

Oh how life changes to quickly.  Little ones grow up.  Even though we wish they would stay little for ages.  Take advantage of it.  Play with balloons, eat the ice cream, lick the sucker—cause some day the opportunity will be missed.
