New for April: Creative Memories Little Lamb Collection

Getting caught up finally after getting over the flu - it's been 3 weeks since I first came down with it and I was able to get back to most of my normal routine this past week and I started a new part-time job last week too.  


I'll start with the mid-March launch,  this quarter's 8x8 Album Coversets were released.  They are only available until April 10th.  The pages and protectors are available for purchase year round. 


We also now have a new addition to the Imagine Collection - a 12x12 Fast2Fab Album! 



I was really happy to see this!  I had originally wanted to buy the 8x8 Fast2Fab but realized I had so many pictures from our WDW trip.   I did buy my 12x12 Coversets and now I can purchase the Fast2Fab pages to match.   

If you like grid layouts you are going to love the new CM Wildflower Recipe Template.  So many different layout options!  Check out this YouTube video to see step-by-step instructions:

Now for April,  a beautiful new Baby themed collection called Little Lamb.
I am loving the soft colours in this collection.  This collection includes new albums, Fast2Fab sets, paper, stickers and mat packs.    Digital files are also available for use in your favourite digital scrapbooking or die-cutting software.

There are also some new tools included in this launch.   There is a new 4-way Hearts and Stars Corner and Hole punch along with a Double Heart Punch and a new Double Wave Tearing Tool.  If you missed out last fall the Rolling Tote is now back in stock.

You can view all the latest products in the What's New section of my Creative Memories website.

Bash My Stash: Rollerblading Layouts

Here are a couple more layouts from the Summer of 2000.  I had finished this album over a year ago but then came across a few more prints a couple of weeks ago.  Easy enough to add them into my album, that's what I like best about using side-loading pages. 

I'm still working on bashing my stash and was able to find two different lines that went nicely together.  I really like the bright colours in the Bella Blvd Molly Collection with the CTMH Taste of Summer papers.  Great for children's pictures.

I found these rollerblade stickers in my stash and started pulling paper and embellishments that matched.   I'm pretty sure that I've had these stickers since the early 2000's.



I used a sketch from CTMH Stargazer WYW kit (free to download on their website until the end of April) for this two page layout.  





For this page I used a sketch from a Scrapbook Generation e-book:

Layout using CM Adventure Collection with Go! Fight! Win! Project Recipe

I use a lot of sketches when scrapbooking and love that Creative Memories creates a Project Recipe to go with each new paper collection.

For this layout, I took the Go! Fight! Win! Project Recipe but used the Adventure Collection to scrap my camping pictures. 


The Project Recipe used the Border Maker System but since I don't have many cartridges yet I decided to create my own in Design Space using the campfire image from the CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge.


Always have to have a bit of sparkle on my pages so I cut a strip of CTMH Bronze Shimmer trim in half lengthwise and used it as a border along the CM patterned paper.


My title is from Miss Kate Cuttables, cut mostly from Recollections cardstock.  
It was pretty easy to find colours that coordinated well with the CM Adventure patterned papers. 


Products used in this layout:
  • CM Adventure Paper (retired)
  • CM Adventure Stickers (retired)
  • CM Beige Cardstock
  • Recollections Cardstock
  • CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge
  • CTMH Bronze Shimmer Trim


 The Adventure Collection has now been retired but the Digital Kit is still available for purchase on my CM website and can be used in your favourite digital scrapbooking or diecutting software.
