Challenge 4- Creative Memories March Virtual Crop

We know that you all love a great sketch.

Sketches have so much life in them.  Use different collections each time, and you are sure to have endless possibilities.  You can also rotate the sketch right or left, and get a whole new take on it.

Sketches are created as a “jumping off” point for you.  They can be interpreted exactly or very loosely.  There are not measurements, so you can make it yours.

Loveable Paw Prints Border Maker Cartridge Scrapbook Page

When I saw the new Paw Print Border Maker Cartridge and Fur Buddies Paper and Stickers, I immediately envisioned the page that I wanted to make for this blog post.  Lately, I’ve been a little obsessed with using jumbo hearts in a variety of ways.  And today I’m going to share with you a technique that I enjoyed teaching to the attendees at my recent weekend retreat.

Woodland Whimsy Cards

Seriously…I could live in this enchanted wonderland with the adorable fox and other cute critters.

No babies here.  It’s been 20 years since my “baby” was born.  However, that is no reason at all to not HAVE to HAVE the new Woodland Whimsy Collection.

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.

Scrapbooking Layouts Using Sorbet Collection

Today, I’m encouraging you to take a closer look at our new Sorbet Scrapbooking Collection.  When I first saw it, I immediately noticed the pinks, purples, yellows and all of the flowers.  But on a closer look, I realised that it really is a versatile collection.  The feminine colours are balanced by shades of orange, blue, green and grey.  It’s obviously going to be fantastic for all types of spring projects and scrapbooking, but the playful artwork of this collection is also going to be great for scrapbooking photos of both my granddaughter and my grandson.

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!
