Photo-safe Washi Tape

For the first time ever Creative Memories is offering Washi Tape!
And unlike most other Washi Tapes on the market, CM's is photo-safe!

If you've never used it before, it's super easy -- just like tape but easier to tear.
You can add strips anywhere for fun designs:

I keep empty gift cards near my Washi collection so that I can easily tear clean strips when I don't want the torn look:

The first Washi Tape Collection from Creative Memories is called Toil and Trouble and is part of our Halloween collection.  I'm hoping this is just the first of many more fun designs to come!

I like using Washi tape in my planner and in card making and gift wrapping. For more ideas here is a link to a previous post using Washi tape: Washi Tape Dispenser, Wrapping Presents and More!

Creative Memories Halloween and Pumpkin Collection!

The new Pumpkins Border Maker Cartridge for the Border Maker System is not just a string of pumpkins...look closely and you'll see it would look just as darling with red or green paper to make a string of cherries or apples... (Think outside the box with these tools, right?!)

Take a peek at the Toil & Trouble Paper Pack:

As you can see it's not just for Halloween (despite the creepy music) but would look great with a lot of different fall layouts. In my opinion the Toil & Trouble Paper Pack is more adorable than trouble!

These pumpkins were made using the Custom Cutting System Oval Patterns!

To complement this collection Creative Memories is offering some fun sticker letters in Burnt Orange (while supplies last):

When you check out my website, you'll see the rest of the Toil & Trouble Collection including a special 12x12 album and sticker pack!

Creative Memories Pin Collection

Are you a pin collector? Now through Aug 29, order $50-$99.99 in Creative Memories Woodland Whimsy products and earn 3 FREE exclusive enamel Woodland character pins (selected at random) OR order $100+ and earn all 6 Woodland pins FREE!

The Woodland Whimsy products are not just for Baby Albums...I am using the Woodland Whimsy "baby boy" Fast2Fab album for my son's middle school album. It has a fox which is the same as his school mascot. Also the colors are just perfect for a school album and not 'baby-ish' at all!

I think this paper would be perfect for Hunting, Camping, and Scouts albums too.

If you are looking for a baby shower gift, you can purchase the Bundle and get a good deal while also having it arranged in a beautiful gift box:

And of course, the Embellishments are perfect for card making:

Organize your scrapbooking supplies

It's finally here! A fun, new Creative Memories Crop Caddy to help organize your scrapbooking and craft supplies.

It's super cute and will easily transport from your closet to table to workshop...

You know how much I LOVE pens...well Creative Memories has brought back some favorite colors plus a new Purple pen!  These are Dual-tip so fine tip on one side and bold tip on the other side. They should always be stored horizontally so this cute little Pens & Pouch will ensure you lay them flat while not in use. Creative Memories pens are made in Japan, photo-safe and bleed resistant. If you love pens, you know Japan makes some of the BEST!

For bigger projects and to bring your photo albums to a Workshop or Retreat,
you might use the Creative Memories Product Tote:

I personally don't put 4 albums in my Product Tote, but this is an example of how much it can hold.  I usually bring One Album, Extra Refill Pages, Multi-Pocket Pages, Page Protectors and 2-3 Power Palette Folders filled with Card Stock Paper, Stickers, Mats and Embellishments.  This is what Creative Memories Power Palette Folders look like:

Here is a short video on how to pack a Creative Memories Crop Caddy:

I hope you enjoyed these tips and tools for organizing your scrapbooking supplies. I'm super happy that Creative Memories is bringing back storage solutions!

Creative Memories scrapbooking pens

When it comes to scrapbooking, pens do matter.
Creative Memories pens are the best choice for archival scrapbooking!
I'm so excited that we now have 5 fun colors added to our mix!

We also offer

All of the pens (except Gold and Silver) are dual-tip so you get 2 pens in one! 
Both a fine tip side and a bold tip side.

I just love how Creative Memories pens write and I include journaling on almost every page in my scrapbook albums. If your handwriting isn't neat, don't worry about it! It's not how it looks as much as what it says. A tip for writing neater is to Slow Down. Sometimes just taking the time to write a little slower can make your handwriting more legible.

Should I store my pens horizontally or vertically?  Creative Memories pens should always be stored horizontally -- see the video below for a peek inside the pen and you will see why laying them flat when you're not using them is important for proper ink flow:
