A Bright and Beautiful Baby Shower

Today I am so excited to be sharing this project with you! I recently hosted a baby shower for a friend of mine and to create all of the party decor and elements I used the DIGITAL Cake My Day Collection!

Everything was pre-designed on my computer and then I sent it off to have it printed on cardstock at my local print shop. It was super fast, super fun to make, and best of all — it knocked the socks off the mama-to-be, which is always fun!

So, let’s get started! What I did first was downloaded the Cake My Day collection from the Creative Memories website. Once the files were purchased, I uploaded them into my software and started to design!

Christmas Past Scrapbooking Sampler

Here’s a project that will help you kick-start your Christmas decorating.  This sampler made with our beautiful Christmas Past Collection and Gold Shimmer Cardstock evokes the warm cosy feeling.

You can use the sampler with an easel on your mantle as I did, or it would also be great on your old Creative Memories Everyday Display.  After the holidays are over, use the sampler as a title page for your annual Christmas album or cut it apart into three vertical panels to use as borders on scrapbook pages.

Home Decor: Create a DIY Rolled Paper Wreath

That warm, fuzzy, comfy feeling of home.

Immediately, I had to create something for my home decor.

I wanted to duplicate the paper wreath in which I created for the current catalogue using the Cool Serenity Collection.

Halloween Paper Craft Medallions

I see them everywhere.  Medallions.  Paper Medallions!

They are adorable and so easy to make!  You can create small ones, or very large ones all dependent on the width paper you use.

But, how do you make these adorable paper medallions to incorporate into your decor?

Using our Bats in the Belfry Collection will add to the spookiness of your Halloween decor.

Let me show you how to create these adorable pieces, so you can add to your Halloween decor, or perhaps even a birthday or Christmas!
