Scrapbook papers and embellishments have personalities, and Bee Mine is energizing! If you’ve been feeling a little rundown after the hustle and bustle of the holidays, get your hands on the Bee Mine collection and you’ll feel ready to create an entire album. When Melissa designed this fun Arrow Border Layout, I had to give it a try. I loved the way that she used three different colours of cardstock behind each arrow in the border design.
My beautiful niece recently married, and I offered (I would’ve begged) to make her wedding album for her! The new Forever Yours Wedding Collection with its elegant, timeless pieces, along with the lovely photos taken, are all I need to create the perfect keepsake of her special day.
Here are a few borders I’ve created to personalize the Forever Yours Fast2Fab Album I’m using. Something I love about making borders to decorate my pages is that they are so versatile: they work well on any style of page, from Fast2Fab to black to white.
Looking to add a fun, graphic “punch” to your pages? Try out the new Doily Border Punch! The doily shapes are nearly 1-1/4″ big and by themselves really accent a page. But add a few more of the fun papers and embellishments from several favorite Creative Memories collections, and they really pop!
Making it quick…and easy.
This is how most of us love to work, if we are able.
Let us show you how cutting a corner can also be FUN! … using the 4-Way Corner and Hole Punch to create a beautiful card.
Creative Memories new Forever Yours Collection was released just in time for the spring/summer wedding season. I know that I’ll be attending a few bridal showers and two weddings this summer – one being my son’s – and I’ll need some cards for gift-giving.
I created two beautiful layered cards with lots of texture and pretty details using the Forever Yours Paper, Stickers, Embellishments, Laser Cut Embellishments and Vellum Paper. Our new 4-Way Corner and Hole Punch added the final pièce de résistance to these cards.
The Digital Mi Amor kit isn’t just for Valentines! It can be used for many different themed photos throughout the year, love, wedding, couples, travel, prom and VALENTINES!
Weddings are wonderful place for LOVE/AMOUR! Mi Amor with all of its sweet embellishments works so beautifully with wedding photos. I changed my photos to black and white so they would blend nicely with the rich reds in this collection. I changed the title from black to white and matted each of the photos in white to coordinate and then added a shadow to all elements to make them pop!
I love blending my background photo into the paper background and then add a few of the sweet heart embellishments in this collection. As for the white hearts I changed the opacity so that the hearts looked like vellum.
Travel photos work well with Mi Amor. To make my journaling more visible and stand out on the background paper I added a white rectangle and changed the opacity. From Paris to Vegas or Paris in Vegas…
And of course Mi Amor is perfect for LOVE day photos! One of my favourite embellishments is the sweet envelope and the wonderful advantage to digital is you can make this envelope as large or as small as you like. I added embellishments and cut them along the bottom to make them look like they are popping out of the envelope. I then added a heavy shadow.
Happy LOVE Day!
I love it that I can create an entire scrapbook album in just a few hours with Creative Memories Fast2Fab Predesigned Albums. I just adhere my photos to the pages, add some journaling and that’s it! It’s great when I want to finish an album quickly. The cool thing is that there are coordinating embellishments, stickers and papers available when I want to dress my pages up. Today I’m going to share two scrapbook layouts from the Natural Elegance Fast2Fab album with you. One basic layout and one dressed up version.
Whether you are a simple scrapper, a pocket scrapper or a decorative scrapper, the beautiful Natural Elegance Collection will help you create gorgeous layouts that effortlessly highlight your wedding photos! I used the lovely papers, sticker, embellishments and slide-in cards from the collection with my own wedding photos to create an almost instant “naked” page on the beloved Black Scrapbook Pages, a slide-in page using the versatile Multi-Pocket Pages and a more traditional layout where I got to have fun with layering decorative papers & borders and making embellishments clusters.
With two weddings on my 2017 calendar, I’m already thinking about wedding shower gifts. My standard gift for a bride-to-be is a Creative Memories Fast2Fab album for the newlywed’s wedding and/or honeymoon photos. This time, though, I’m thinking of doing something a little different. Instead of handing each bride-to-be an unfinished scrapbook album, I plan to use their engagement photos to create the perfect wedding guest book. Creative Memories’ Natural Elegance Wedding Collection makes it so easy to create a guest book for your own wedding or to give as a gift. Here are a few page ideas to get you started:
Start with your cover page, add a photo and use a Natural Elegance slide-in to create a message for the wedding guests from the bride and groom. Embellishments from the Natural Elegance Embellishments Pack and Natural Elegance Sticker Pack were added to dress up the page.
Be sure to leave plenty of room for guests to write in your guest book. For this layout, I used Cloud cardstock to mat one photo and to create a notched strip. I then added embellishments and stickers from the Natural Elegance Wedding Collection.
I added a Natural Elegance slide-in, another photo of the engaged couple and one sticker to this scrapbook layout. The rest of the pre-designed photo boxes were left empty for guests to write in.
