Didn’t that make you feel good? Now, let’s share that sentiment with a friend and make them feel beautiful too!
The Brainiac with Bookworm
How exciting!!! A collection for all of your school memories.
As you may remember, I am new to the scrapbooking part of papercrafting. I have a pile of my kids’ school memories that need to get into books. I am not overwhelmed by the process. I figure I will let the paper “speak” to me. That is exactly what this Bookworm Collection did to me. It spoke to me when picking a photo. My daughter spoke to me as well! When I showed her the picture that I decided on she said, “really Mom, you couldn’t have picked another picture that made me look less dorky?”.
Titles & Tags Using Rectangle Patterns
The Custom Cutting System has long been a beloved staple for adding some circle and oval shapes to our pages. Now we can expand our shape-ortoire to rectangles! There are endless ways to use the new Rectangle Patterns on all kinds of pages and album styles. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.
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.

Challenge 4- Creative Memories March Virtual Crop
We know that you all love a great sketch.
Sketches have so much life in them. Use different collections each time, and you are sure to have endless possibilities. You can also rotate the sketch right or left, and get a whole new take on it.
Sketches are created as a “jumping off” point for you. They can be interpreted exactly or very loosely. There are not measurements, so you can make it yours.

Challenge 3- Creative Memories Virtual Crop
This day is just flying by!
So much of North America is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend. You might be enjoying shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops. However, it is still pretty cool here in Minnesota. We are still wearing long pants with long-sleeve shirts, and closed toe shoes. And, layering. Maybe more than one layer, possibly even two or three layers.
So, while we are layering on our clothing here in Minnesota, let’s talk about LAYERING our borders on our scrapbook pages.
