December Daily Project

Are you expecting that the holiday season will be much different for you this year? Due to the pandemic are you likely to forgo some of your annual traditions and activities? Are you looking for a socially distanced activity that will bring some new enjoyment into your holiday season? Join me in my December Daily Project!

Instead of focusing on the things that we’re missing this year, we’ll focus on the blessings and meaningful things that remain. We’ll take a purposeful photo each day during the month of December that focuses on some aspect of the holiday for which you’re grateful and that you would like to celebrate. We’ll add our photos to a December Daily Album or Pages and journal about the meaning behind our photos.

There will be a workshop to pre-make our December Daily layouts, so they’ll be ready for photos and journaling in December. The focus will be on simple and easy layouts with an emphasis on journaling. As a community, we’ll celebrate the season and our blessings together in a private FB group throughout the month of December. In the group, we’ll share reminders and ideas for photos and share ideas for new socially distanced holiday activities.

There is a $10 fee to participate in the December Daily Project. The workshop to pre-decorate our album pages will be held through a Zoom Meeting on Saturday, November 21st at 1 pm CT.

I’ll be using 12×12 Spargo Album Pages and a few sheets of the Christmas Spirit Paper – including the sheet imprinted with calendar numbers shown above. I’ll also be using a variety of cardstock, punches and Border Maker cartridges and will offer substitution suggestions.

I hope that you can join me for this new fun event! Please pay your $10 fee and order your supplies from my Creative Memories website asap.

Happy Scrapping!

National Scrapbook Day

I’m holding a two-day workshop to celebrate National Scrapbook Day on Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23.  Come one day or both days!  There will be lots of scrapping fun, food, make-n-takes, page classes, door prizes, inspiration and more!  Please contact me for a registration form.

I’m excited to share that I’m the newest member of the CM Design Team.  As an assignment for the team, I created the pages below using our Exclusive National Scrapbook Day items.  Making these pages will be an optional class available at my National Scrapbook Day workshop.  The only way to get the exclusive paper and stickers is to attend my workshop.


Lighthouse pages made with our Exclusive National Scrapbook Day items, our Border Maker with Picket Fence Cartridge and our new Word Bubble Punch.

Got Christmas Photos?

Here’s a cute border idea that I adapted from our CM Blog using our Christmas Joy Paper and Stickers and our Border Maker with the Picket Fence and Evergreen Cartridges.  For more border ideas using the Christmas Joy Paper and Stickers – most are quick and easy – please contact me, and I’m happy to email five more pages of instructions to you.
