Pens & Pouch

Hi, everyone. I must admit, I have a thing for little pouches and when I first saw this cute little pouch, I knew I had to have it. And I did not want it for the pens. I wanted it for the pouch since my favourite colour is blue.

Don’t get me wrong, I can find many usages for this pretty rainbow colour marker set. There are a few ways these pens will come in handy. Here are a few ideas that come to mind. I could:

Simple Borders Using Dancing Daisies!

One of my favourite things to do when Creative Memories launches a new Border Maker Cartridge is to punch out a whole pile of the new border and just play! I like to see how it can be layered, stacked, positioned on a page, etc. I just love spending some time being creative! I also love seeing which other Border Maker Cartridges coordinate nicely with it.

Today I want to share with you what came out of my playing and experimenting with the new Dancing Daisies Border Maker Cartridge. I chose to punch a pile of white border strips as a starting point and then used the Mix and Match Paper Pack and Embellishments to complete some borders.

Love Bug Mix & Match Layout

Who is your love bug?  Maybe it might be your husband, your child, your niece or nephew, your grandchild….. whoever it is, this is the perfect layout to add their photos to.

Document the reasons why they are your “Love Bug”.  Trust me, it will make them feel loved beyond measure!

Creating a simple, yet embellished layout does not have to be a lot of work.  Cut several strips of paper the same length and width, and then a few flowers at the end of each and you are golden.

Send A Note To Say Hello

I always have my Creative Memories goodies all packed and ready to go with me. Currently,  I am spending my days in our RV out of town while my hubby works.  I love the versatility of Creative Memories products, everything you need to make amazing layouts and cards is at your fingertips.  I do have a well-stocked craft studio in my home but I don’t like hauling all my goodies with me.  Everything I need to create can be found with Creative Memories products!

I don’t know about you, but I love to make and send cards to loved ones to hopefully brighten their day.  I do not have a stash of cards here in the RV so I decided to make this set of four note cards just to have on hand.

It’s Game Day

Hi everybody! It’s almost that time of year when the little man starts up soccer again. I just received an email reminder to  register him and I am getting excited! I love watching him play with his friends out on the field. It is such a joy to see him having such a great time playing outside and not on the computer.

Love Mix & Match Border

Love is…..Love.

I love to drink my coffee first thing in the morning.  I love my son’s humour.  I love spending my spare time scrapbooking.  I love meatballs and mashed potatoes.  I love smelling the scent of ocean air.  We can LOVE just about anything.

However, what I really LOVE about this scrapbooking border is that I was able to use the Jumbo Jet Border Maker Cartridge in a very non-traditional way.  In fact, I bet when you look at this border, you didn’t even know the Jumbo Jet cartridge was used.  And, better yet—you can use this on just about any layout about many forms of LOVE!
