Are you ready to COMPLETE a StoryBook Scrapbook?

Well, things are getting back to normal for me, which is a huge now I can get back to some FUN!  Of course, I have loads of things on my "to do" list, which is written in invisible ink, otherwise I might faint dead away at the sight of that long list!

But Creative Memories has a special (until April 30, 2010) to order a 7x5 StoryBook for only $12.95!  So I have one done for a friend, but I want to do a simple, special one for me!  I actually started one as an 8x8 called "My Favorite Things" but I think I will make it a 7x5 and save $5!

If you want to join me in this project, all you have to do is start a 7x5 StoryBook project using StoryBook Creator or StoryBook Creator Plus.  If you don't already have the software, go to my website

Then click on the Digital link at the bottom and you can download the free version of the software.  (There's a tutorial also on the website, or call me if you need assistance).

Anyway, then choose 20-30 photos you love (remember, this is a smaller album) and you can probably finish this up in a couple of hours!  Remember, they make great gifts, so now is a great time to give something special that won't break your budget. 

Also, keep an eye on this blog because I'll soon be announcing the date for my National Scrapbook Day event!

Happy (digital) scrapping!

Now's your chance...

Well, if you have been thinking, "maybe I'll try making a Creative Memories Digital StoryBook..." now's the time to do it!

CM is offering $5 off the 7x5 size with personalized soft cover, which makes it only $12.95 for the standard 20 pages! 

So if you don't have the Storybook Creator (free version) or StoryBook Creator Plus 3.0 software on your computer, go to my website and download the free version and just play with it.  There are tutorials also on but basically all you have to do is choose a template (the page style or theme you want) and then drag and drop your photos into the boxes on the template.  You can get your photos from your camera, a disk, or a file on your computer.

If you want a little more help, leave me a comment below (or contact me through my website) and we'll set up a one-on-one (or more if you want to earn Host Credit) and I'll show you how.  If your photos are in the order that you want them to be, you can choose "auto-populate" and they will pop onto the pages automatically!  You can change anything you like before you order it, so don't get scared.

Anyway, this offer is good until April 30, so don't wait too long.  I know this is a busy month for a lot of us, but let's make a date to get together right away, so we don't leave it until the last minute. 

Another thing to keep in mind is that digital scrapbooking is more economical than traditional...though I still love both, we're all keeping a close eye on our budgets, so this is a great way to enjoy and share your photos, and still not break the bank.  And if you want to save even more, Creative Memories Consultants get 30% off all products, including digital!

So check your calendar and let's get this party started!
