Creative Memories Sketchback – June 2021 Sketch #11

My oldest child is getting ready to graduate from high school next month, so this layout from the June 2021 Creative Memories Worldwide Virtual Crop is the perfect throwback sketch to share this week. I will admit – I do NOT have his school album done. In fact, it’s largely still in the planning stages […]

Creative Memories Sketchback – September 2021 Sketch #8

I have a confession – I am not a huge fan of ovals. I don’t know why, but they just aren’t really my thing. At first, I thought I would substitute hexagons for the ovals in this sketch. However, once I decided to use photos of our 2018 Birch Bay trip, I realized ovals would […]

CM Sketchback – November 2020 Sketch #5

Way back in November 2020, I did a series of videos for the Creative Memories Virtual Crop. It was a bit of a whirlwind to keep up with the six sketches as they were released! Sketch #5, however, tried to get the best of me and I didn’t make a video for the final layout […]

CM Sketchback – December 2020 Sketch #5

This is a bit of a throwback in more ways than one for me. I just love these little photos of my youngest child exploring the playground as a baby (nearly 7 years ago now!) and this sketch, originally shared as part of the Creative Memories December 2020 Virtual Crop just made the perfect page […]

January 2021 Creative Memories Virtual Crop Sketch #4

My youngest child, at age 7, is truly a child of the smart phone camera era. Digital photography has been around since before my older two children were born (ages 15 and 18), but to get quality photos of them as small (and adorable) children, I had to pick up my dSLR and it wasn’t […]

Creative Memories Diagonal Plaid Border Punch Frame Layout

It’s taken a few months, but I finally have the Creative Memories Diagonal Plaid Border Punch in my hot little hands, and I am SO excited to play with this punch! This standalone border punch was part of the Blue & Gold Bundle available during the 2021 Black Friday promotion. However, it was caught up […]

Snowbound Scrapbook Border

There is something magical about mountains and pine trees in the winter – both of which I prefer to view out a window while snug with a warm blanket and hot cup of tea! This scrapbook border is inspired by winter in Washington State and features Creative Memories latest winter collection – Snowbound. Supplies Needed: […]
