Creative Memories Files Bankruptcy

Hi Everyone,

Creative Memories filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy yesterday. They are looking at this as a chance to restructure and refocus on our mission - which has always been helping people preserve their memories. It is a mission I truly believe in and feel blessed to be a part of.

As the company works through this I expect to see our product line trimmed down and because of this I would suggest ordering any products you have your eye on now instead of waiting.

I am hopeful that CM can emerge from this stronger & better than ever. Still, you may want to consider using any product credits or Rewards Club credit sooner rather than later - just to be on the safe side. If you are ordering off my CM website I would suggest using a credit card vs. a debit card. Other than that I am hoping that it's business as usual. All of my scheduled events are still on and I hope to continue helping others preserve their memories for many years to come.

I am not one to push sales but if there has ever been a time to do so, it's now. So, I'm encouraging you to go shopping - if you're in need of a special gift (for someone else or yourself) please let me know.

I love being a Creative Memories Consultant for so many reasons - including the wonderful people it has brought into my life (including you! :) I'm here to help!

Update 4/20:  The next hearing date is May 9th.  I’m placing orders until the 6th and don’t plan on ordering until I learn of the outcome of that hearing – hoping that all goes well and it will be back to business.  I’ll update as soon as I know something.

Total Sports Cricut Cartridge – like all Creative Memories Cricut cartridges this one comes with 2 full alphabets.  Also included are  fun 3D items including banners.  It looks like one banner has coordinating letters and numbers so you can create quick & easy banners.  This cartridge is also available in a digital format so you’ll be able to use it with other die cutting machines as well as Storybook Creator PlusHere is an example of banners I made with the digital version of the Tiny Treasures Cricut Digital Alphabet Shapes.  Most of the shapes cut with the CM Cricut cartridges are designed to cut with just a few layers.  This is so refreshing – many other Cricut cartridges have many pieces that are so time consuming to cut & put together.  Because of that these CM Cricut cartridges are the ones I reach for first.  You can view the other  CM Cricut cartridges that are currently available here on my CM website.
