CM National Scrapbooking Day Events–including April 27–May 5 sale!

Crop & Shop (see below for NSD sale info)

Stop by St. Mary’s in Wayne (we’ll be in the gym) on April 28th from 10 am – 10 pm to join me for a NSD crop.  You’ll be able to see the newest products &  pick up a new mini catalog.  I’ll have products available for purchase, too.  I’m bringing my laptop & can show you Memory Manager and/or Storybook Creator Plus (on sale this month!) I have a few spaces still available – contact me to reserve your spot!

If you’re not able to stop by on the 28th you can still celebrate NSD.

Host a NSD party (in person or virtual) during April 27 – May 5 and earn product credit based on sales.  Here is a list of specials for hostesses. 

Participate in NSD virtually!


Daily Project Challenges & Door Prizes
CM has some fun activities planned throughout our nine-day NSD celebration that will engage you each day and help you get moving on your photo projects! Every day by noon Central Time, CM will post a sketch and project challenge on CM’s blog (watch for links on Pinterest and the Home Office and Go Digital Facebook pages). The sketches and challenges will be adaptable for both digital and traditional croppers.  All you will need are a computer, a variety of scrapbooking products and photos ready to pop onto your pages (including one or two of them as children and some vacation shots)!  Anyone who uploads an image of a daily challenge project to CM’s Facebook page by 11:59 p.m. (CT) will be entered into a door-prize drawing for that day.

Additionally, CM will be posting a link to a daily Speed-Scrap Challenge on the Go Digital Facebook Fan page to help digital scrappers complete beautiful pages quickly. They will also offer daily digital freebies that, when collected each day, will include all the components of 2 full pages!


DAILY EVENTS (Central Time) – one hour behind Eastern Time
9 AM:

Scrapbooking Challenges on the Home Office and Go Digital Facebook Pages. Every morning, we'll post a new challenge for both customers and Consultants to complete. Complete the entry form and post an image of your completed project to either Facebook Page by 11:59 p.m. that day to be entered for a daily door prize!

Sketch Downloads on the Home Office Facebook Page, Pinterest and our Digital and Traditional blogs. Learn how using sketches can inspire new layouts. (Save the sketches to use at future events!)

Digital Freebies on the Go Digital Facebook Page. Collect one each day to have the ingredients for a complete two-page digital layout at the end of the celebration.

Monthly Project Sheets–April 2012

Click on the title of each project to get a PDF file listing products used as well as instructions.

All About Mom – a heartwarming Simply Said book that takes only about an hour of time but is sure to be a treasured gift!



For the Graduate – a quick & easy Photo Panel


Universal Format Artwork from Creative Memories!

CM has added some content that can be used without CM’s Storybook Creator Plus software in PNG and JPG format.  That means MAC users & those using programs other than Storybook Creator Plus can now use these sets!

If you are using SBC+ I would encourage you to buy the package designed for the version of SBC+ you’re using – those will still have the keywords and easy installation features you’ve come to know & love. 

Below are the symbols you will see on my CMC website next to our digital offerings – now you can easily locate which type of content you would like to purchase.


Some fun new digital content (click on the kit name to view it on my CMC Website):

Bunny Hop


Butterfly Kisses


Family Man


Take it Easy


Mothers Day Card Kit


Fathers Day Card Kit
