Since most of my family lives on the East Coast (while I’m West) I wrapped, packaged and shipped holiday gifts this past weekend. Last year I bought the Stampin’ Up Cookie Cutter Christmas stamps and punch – it’s so versitle! This year I made gift tags with the set.
I also used some leftover die cuts from a Creative Memories holiday kit. I pulled out my ancient Xyron to make my life easier – and I’ve fallen in love again with this tool!
How are you using your scrappy supplies with your gift wrapping this season?
On another note, Creative Memories is now offering coffee. This is the family business of the current owner of CM and I know that lots of coffee is consumed during my crops. Check it out – there’s still time to place an order for holiday delivery!
Even though I’m a digi scrapbooker, I’m finding myself doing more tactile paper crafts like cards and art journaling. As I work more and more with paint, I’ve been learning to brush my excess onto a scrap piece of paper. That, together with the new (to me) punch from Creative Memories is making me very happy.
Now I’m finding myself wanting to use more paint to have more excess! This punch is becoming one that stays on my desk all the time.
If you’re interested in some Creative Memories products, there’s a super Mystery Bag deal happening right now! Click either of the images to go to my Creative Memories website.
Traditionally, the first Saturday of May has been known as National Scrapbook Day (NSD). In recent years, it’s been joined by interNational Scrapbook Day (iNSD) in March and Digital Scrapbooking Day in November. I know, confusing, right!?! Either way, this means that there’s TONS of deals out there for scrapbookers!

How are you participating in National Scrapbooking Day this weekend?
Creative Memories held a virtual crop this past weekend. Although I was too busy much of the weekend to participate, I managed to get one layout done on Friday night.
They had a sketch to use, which I turned sideways. I also used their Digital Denim Blues kit. To see all the challenges, check out CM’s blog!

I love creating this time of year. It’s really fun for me to make photo gifts, handmade cards and more! Last year, I purchased some great leaf stamps from my Close to My Heart rep and decided to make some thankful cards.
I’m so thankful for all of you – who read and follow me. I really appreciate your support!
Here are some holiday shopping specials I hope you’ll enjoy, click the images to go to my shopping pages.
I recently hosted a Creative Memories scrapbooking event. The home office representative brought many new products and showed off the new Project Recipes. As someone who is mostly a digi scrapper I saw right away that these were sketches. I’ve been using sketches in my scrapbooking for quite a while now and am thrilled that I can offer these ideas to you!
The recipes include the sketch as well as very specific cutting instructions for each paper. Although the recipes are first used with a specific paper kit, they can be used over and over with any papers you have on hand.
We used the Soiree Layout Project Recipe at our event, together with the Soiree papers. The pinks and blacks work so well together!
I’d love to see what you create with this Project Recipe – link up in the comments.
I’m also really excited about the new re-positionable adhesive! This is going to revolutionize my card making! Click the image below to shop.
Who’s missed Creative Memories? I know I have and I know many others have as well. They’ve actually been back for a while now but I just now decided to become an Advisor [again]. I’ve missed their tape runner and tools the most, however albums, pages and pens are also available. I do think I’ll get a couple new cartridges for my border maker, the filmstrip one looks really cool!
So, what have you missed from Creative Memories?
