Music is a crazy thing. A song has the ability to transport you back to a certain time and place and make you feel incredibly nostalgic. The parallels between music and the Essentials collection was clear to blog contributor Sachiyo, which is why she felt it would be perfect for creating a layout for her trip to the Motown Museum. Check out the modern yet vintage scrapbook layout she made!

A certain cartoon crab once said that life is better under the sea. Although our lack of gills makes it impossible for us to confirm this, that doesn’t stop us from using our imagination to picture what a life underwater would be like. It certainly didn’t stop the granddaughter of blog contributor Vanessa, who decided on having a mermaid-themed party for her third birthday. This gave Vanessa the idea of using the Sun-Kissed collection and adjusting it to make her layout for the party capture the aquatic essence of the event. The result? An underwater-themed scrapbook layout that looks like it came straight from the bottom of the ocean!

I love everything about the Christmas season; my family traditions, making new traditions with friends, red and green decorations, blue and silver decorations…you name it and if it’s Christmas, I’m in. One thing that is tradition in my area (maybe everywhere else too?) is living/singing Christmas trees. Choral groups in Christmas tree formation with beautiful poinsettias in front of them. It so happens I just received my poinsettia punch! So inspired by the singing poinsettia Christmas tree, I tried to recreate that on my layout! Here’s to traditions old and new….no matter how you celebrate with your family and friends…take pictures and preserve those memories!
If I asked you what types of occasions you make sure to include in your scrapbooks, you would probably say holidays, vacations and of course, celebrations!
Celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries and retirements are such joyful occasions that we want to make sure the memories and stories are preserved.
Creative Memories new Soiree Collection features patterns, colors and images that will work beautifully for so many different celebrations!
To prove it, I used the Soiree Collection to create two very different celebratory layouts.
