Creative Memories new Forever Yours Collection was released ahead of this year’s wedding season. I know that I’ll be attending a few bridal showers and two weddings this year – 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 did not grow up with any pets. Well, a parakeet. Does that count?
Unfortunately, I grew up with asthma and allergies, which meant no extra dander in the house. It made me sad to not be able to even pet the neighbor’s dogs or cats. I had no idea what I was missing out on until I outgrew the allergies and asthma in my adult years.
My boys begged and begged for a furry friend.

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 lolly jar 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.

The only thing that wasn’t well-thought-out and customised? The baby shower cards.
