One of the things that attracted me to Creative Memories is how many of their products are timesavers. I love it when they take the time to coordinate items so I don’t have to.
“Believe” cut using ‘Tis the Season CM Cricut Cartridge using Green Apple, Silver Shimmer & Black CM Cardstock.
The background paper has this detail printed on it – complete with foil accents. The 12x12 papers that are in the Holidazzle & Noel collections are double sided and each sheet has one side with foil accents and one side without. Hoidazzle has silver accents & Noel has gold. I added a strip of the polka dot paper, grey photo mat and striped paper ribbon from the Holidazzle collection as well as a strip of Green Apple CM Cardstock.
This page uses items from the Noel collection. The ornament on the background paper has gold foil accents. The colors are a bit off - they are a rich looking deep green and red.

Ideas? Can’t get enough of them! Nancy O’Dell’s new Creative Memories book – Secret Ingredients is filled with great ideas!
The book is filled with step-by step “recipes” for creating meaningful gifts that can easily be adapted to use in your album making or other projects. It’s more than just ideas for layouts or other projects. Fun, heartfelt ideas to help you create something really special. Love that!
Fun projects like this one for the Everyday Display are throughout the book. This one is a different way to countdown to Christmas. You make a “To Do” pocket and fill it with tags that list fun holiday activities and then move these to a “Done” pocket when there completed! The book has some great suggestions for activities but of course you could include any traditions your family already does or wants to try.
Lots of sketches in the book, too – to help you get a jump start on your layouts.
Lots of page ideas and other project ideas, like this cute little album meant to be given with a sapling. Each year the recipient only needs to take a picture by the tree and place it in the pre-decorated album! A wonderful way to measure a child’s growth!
