2019 Spring CLS Blog Hop


Welcome to Creative Life Scrapbooking's (CLS) 2019 Spring Blog Hop! 

If you’re hopping in order, you came from Stefani's Blog.  At the end of my post I’ll send you on your way to Fran’s blog. Be sure to visit each stop – there are lots of  wonderful ideas being shared!  (More info, including the complete list of Blog Hop stops, is at the bottom of this post.)
Today I’m sharing layouts using products from Creative Memories and featuring the Travel Log and Great Excape Collection. The photos are from one of our stops during our Alaska Cruise when we visited Carcross.  Where is Carcross?  I'm glad you asked!

To make the globe I used the Custom Cutting System and the Jumbo Circle Pattern. This is now retired but if you would like to use one (or other retired tools) contact your CM Advisor.
Chances are they have one you can borrow!
The paper I used for this globe layout is from the Great Escape Collection and I thought it was perfect for these photos!  Don't worry if you love the colors in this collection but don't have Canadian themed photos - the designers at CM have wisely designed the printed paper packs so that one side of the paper is generic.

2019 Winter CLS Blog Hop


Welcome to Creative Life Scrapbooking's (CLS) 2019 Winter Blog Hop! Bundle up and grab something warm to drink as we share some fun ideas!
If you’re hopping in order, this is the start of the Blog Hop.  At the end of my post I’ll send you on your way to Noreen’s blog. Be sure to visit each stop – there are lots of  wonderful ideas being shared!  (More info, including the complete list of Blog Hop stops, is at the bottom of this post.)
Today I’m sharing a layout using products from Creative Memories and featuring the  Ever After Collection.  Yes, this collection is designed for wedding photos BUT it has some absolutely gorgeous papers and elements that can be used for most any photos!  CM Designers have wisely created most of the papers & mats so that they have a non-themed design on one side. 

Papers, journaling mat and frames from the Ever After Collection by Creative Memories

 This paper with the wood pattern is my favorite and, being the frugal scrapper that I am, I cut out the center of the paper to use on another project.  Once it's in my album no one will ever notice!



 I needed a banner shape just a little longer than the CM Banner Flag Punch created so I cut a strip of paper as wide as the banner and put only the bottom edge in the Punch.  I also used this technique on both sides of a strip of paper to make the journaling strip on the left side of the layout.
Using the fine point side of a CM Brown Dual Tip Pen, I added a little bit of pen stitching to the banners and journaling strips to help them stand out a bit.
Thanks for stopping by!
