Creative Memories Discontinuation Alert!!

Hey Memory Makers! I was afraid this day would come....I'm very sorry to announce that Creative Memories has just announced the discontinuation of the following products (available while supplies last):

Original 12x12 refill pages (white, black, spargo, natural)
Original 12x12 page protectors

(Note: they have a NEW True 12x12 Size that is standard in the industry - they made this switch a couple of years ago. Only the Original 12x12 pages are being discontinued not the new "True" 12x12 size which are about 1/4" longer.)

Also being discontinued: (while supplies last starting April 1)

12x15 albums (black, ruby, cobalt)
12x15 refill pages (white)
12x15 page protectors

8.5x11 refill pages (white)
8.5x11 page protectors
8.5x11 side-loading sleeves

7x7 refill pages (white, black, spargo, natural)
7x7 page protectors

PLEASE if you need any of the above to complete your collections, please order ASAP before they run out. I understand the financial strain this may put on some of you and I apologize for only having a 2 week notice. I am in the same boat as you as I am having to stock up for my own personal stash as well.

Hopefully this will make the company stronger and they can keep going on their new True 12x12 size and other products that they have been introducing.

You can see the prices and more info on the website

This info probably won't be posted until April 1st but I wanted to give my loyals readers a heads-up!!!

Scrapbook Plan 2012

The Power Palette I ordered from Creative Memories just arrived and I am excited to say that I really, really like it!! In fact, I love it! I love it so much that it has inspired me to use it as the basis for my entire 2012 family album!  All of the Power Palettes are on sale this month (March 1-31) at 30% off so this is a great time to get in on the savings and order an entire set. All of the components are available to purchase seperately but it is cheaper when you order the bundle. The bundles includes

1 pack of double-sided 12x12 paper
1 pack of single-sided embossed 12x12 paper
1 pack of assorted paper ribbon
1 pack of sparkly epoxy stickers
3 sheets of Title stickers
96 pieces of Journaling Boxes/embellishing precut papers
2 sheets of ABC stickers
64 coordinating paper flowers

I love these journal boxes!! I love the black embellishments added!

I think this journaling box and coordinating paper will work perfect on my daughter's Sweet 16  page! 

The paper has a clear embossed look on the artwork - you may be able to see the reflection of light off this photo...that is the clear scrolling added - it's just beautiful!

Lots of patterned paper that I can cut in 4"x12" strips along my page layouts

I can see this Enchanted set working for January through December photos. I see the whites and blacks for Jan-March, the greens and blues April-June, the Reds and Grays July-December. Of course, I can (and may have to) add other Additions for special holidays and occasions but this is going to be my 2012 Scrapbook Plan for my family album. I can't wait to get started!

I'm off to go scrapbooking today more motivated than ever to complete 2011. I want to get started on this new Palette!!

Happy Scrappin',
