Luxurious Layered Cards using Forever Yours Scrapbook Collection

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.

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 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.

This collection is so versatile.  It is not just for babies, at all!  Such beautiful, fun-loving colours are sure to put a smile on any face.  Imagine getting a card in the mail with this refreshing collection, and the whimsical critters! Those would make anyone smile.

2×3 Pocket Albums with Digital Artwork Make a Big Impression

My husband travels a lot for work and it can be lonely when you are required to be a away from your family and your home.  We all carry mobile phones that have lots of photos stored on them and access to social media to see what is happening at home, but there is nothing as rewarding as holding an album with printed photos of the people you love  in your hands.
