Although it’s only November, it’s almost time to start getting ready to decorate your home for the Christmas season. Most everyone has traditional Christmas decorations like wreaths and ornaments, but what about DIY Christmas decorations? If you’re a Creative Memories® fan, you’re likely a crafty person and have the ability to create some beautiful decorations. Need an idea of where to start? Check out this DIY Christmas tree paper craft that you can make using the Season’s Greetings Paper Pack!
If you’ve a penchant for patterned, brightly coloured papers – then you’ll find the Essentials Tone-on-Tone paper is full of quirky, geometric, primary toned goodness.
These scrapbook papers inspired this fantastic geometric scrapbook layout, which uses creative angle cuts and clever paper placement to create a unique graphic backdrop for your latest fun photos.
Our family has a passion for visiting off-the-beaten-track locations in the Australian outback. We love to getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, get amongst nature and live the simple life. And, when we get home, I love to document our adventures in my Creative Memories Albums so the kids (and us too) will remember these special trips in years to come.
12 Days of…
Throughout the year, we receive many requests to see layouts/ideas using a certain number of photos on the layout. So, when we thought about what we would do for “12 Days” we decided it would be great to show you how to use 1-12 photos on a holiday themed layout.
So without further ado, we introduce you to the 12 Days of Cropping…
On the 1st Day of Christmas, Creative Memories gave to me an idea using 1 photograph.
So what happens when you combine the awesome Mix & Match papers with the adorable Sugarplum Collection and Holly Border Punch? Well, more adorable awesomeness, of course! Just in case any of you are craving a little traditional red and green or jewel tones this Christmas Season, I’ve added little pops of those colours from the Mix & Match paper packs. The Holly Border Punch brings it all together and gives the borders a festive feel.
Boo!! Can you believe it? The local stores are all set up for the trick or treaters, so I guess I need to start thinking ahead as well! I thought I would make some special little treat bags for the young goblins that show up at my door.
The Toil and Trouble Collection is so bright! I just love it! It’s perfect to get you thinking ahead to Halloween.
There’s nothing like enjoying a bite (or a few) of chocolate, particularly in the winter months!
Are you like me, and always looking to bless someone with a sweet little treat every now and again?
Furry friends are the best, aren’t they? Many of us love our pets so much we take oodles of pictures of them and dedicate entire albums to capturing the special bonds we share with them. The Fur Buddies Paper and Stickers are PURR-fectly wonderful for those fun and lovable pages, and I couldn’t wait to get my PAWS on the new Paw Prints Border maker Cartridge to make some borders. Hope you DIG ’em!
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 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.
