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.

January Virtual Crop: Challenge 3

This day is just flying by!

So much of Australia is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend!  Here in NSW we are having some very WARM weather this Summer. But, it means that we are longing for Autumn–which we know is realistically a few months away. Before we can think about Autumn, we need to think about Valentine’s Day!  What do you think of when you hear that holiday mentioned?

HEARTS!

End of the School Year Teacher Gifts

My youngest granddaughter loves paper crafts. She’s been creating handmade gifts and cards with scrapbooking materials since she was old enough to use a pair of scissors. I think she would approve of the handmade and altered art teacher gift ideas I’m sharing with you today. All you’ll need to complete the teacher gifts I created Creative Memories scrapbooking products, a few dollar store or grocery store items, and a few items you probably already have in your home. I used scrapbooking papers, stickers and embellishments from A Year to Remember collection.  I love the way it complements the end of the school year theme of today’s post.

Winter Wonderland Scrapbook Layout Ideas

Winter is such a beautiful, peaceful time of the year.

Some of us are lucky enough to watch the snowflakes fall from the sky in amazement.

So many of us love to enjoy the outdoors during this time of the year. And, we take a lot of photos of these times spent in the winter wonderland.

Creative Memories has many scrapbooking collections that invite us to use them on these winter themed scrapbook layouts.

Some examples that our Content Contributors have shared are using the A Year To Remember Collection, Natural Elegance Collection, and Cool Serenity Collection.

Stop And Smell The Flowers!

In my personal albums, I am used to scrapbooking for two boys.  No need for flowers!  But, here at Creative Memories, I have the ability to create and use all these wonderful flower embellishments.  So, I just couldn’t stop at the video showing you how to create these beautiful flowers with your Corner Maker.  I took it a step further to show you how you can incorporate them into your layouts!  The flowers are also a great touch to just about any card sentiment you are sending out–birthdays, thinking about you, sympathy, anniversary, etc. So, I am going to continue to “smell” the flowers on many projects to come!

Scrapbooking For A King or Queen

Every little girls dreams of being a princess—heck, who am I kidding–I am still dreaming!  What would your crown look like?  I envision mine with sparkles and the colour pink!  What would yours look like?

Crowns–they are so formal and official!  I remember the days my kids would come home from school on their birthdays wearing a special crown! It made them feel so important!  So, let’s make them feel special when we add those memories to their scrapbooks by using the Crown Border Maker Cartridge.
