Showcase Surprises!

Well, today was the first day of Creative Memories Showcase, the big annual convention in Minnesota ... though I wasn't able to attend, I've been keeping up with some of the big announcements on Facebook and through email updates from other consultants who are attending.  

One big surprise is the Creative Memories is partnering with Cricut (made by ProvoCrafts) a machine that cuts paper shapes and lots more.  We will have some exclusive cartridges to fit the machines.  I haven't had a chance to use one yet, but now will have to get busy.

There are also new Power Palettes in new colors coming, but they won't post the pictures of those until tomorrow, so stay tuned!

The most exciting announcement thus far, to me anyway, is that Creative Memories is releasing a Mac version of StoryBook Creator Plus software!!  It will integrate with this will be great for all of you Mac users!  We have to wait until November 1, but at least we know it's coming for sure.

If you are on Facebook, check out Creative Memories Home Office and Pixels2Pages for more CM news.  If you're not a Facebook user, then check back here for updates.

Happy scrapping!

A great resource

I just found out about a website run by Creative Memories Consultants to help all of us to make the most of Digital!

Check out

This is a beta site (meaning it is in a testing form) so it will depend upon positive user feedback.  There are webinars (short video instructions) and projects for all levels of digital scrapbooking, beginning to advanced.  They also have a group on Facebook if you would like to see what projects they are sharing.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

T-Shirt weather...

 Today I found instructions on the CreativeMemories blog about how to make a design to print on a T-shirt.  Quite easy actually, and I'm working on one now!  I'll post it when I get it done.

You could make a special event T, such as for a family reunion, or one that is similar to one shown in the blog...a grandkids T-shirt!  What grandparent wouldn't love that?

Lots of good ideas are rattling around...and I'll be sharing mine soon!
