Storybook Creator Idea

This last week I was in charge of the food for a women's function at church.  We were serving the food buffet style.  Since I am one of those people who likes to know what I am eating I decided to create little cards that could be placed by each dish so people would know what it was.

Of course Storybook Creator was the perfect thing to create these cards in - it was super quick and easy!

I chose a 4 x 6 template and then used paper from the Give Thanks digital kit.  Just dropped the paper in, added some text and printed!  Easy!

I found some cute little stands at the Dollar Store - 2/$1.00 that worked perfect for holding the signs.

Not only were the signs functional but they were pretty too and added some additional decoration to the fall themed tables!

Heritage Digital Album Gift Idea

It's that time of year!

Time to start thinking of holiday gift giving.

This year my goal is to have the majority of my gifts homemade by me or handmade by someone else. I love supporting handmade business!

One gift you might want to think about is a digital album - a personal and meaningful gift!

Several years ago my mother put together a heritage digital album about her grandfather and gave each of her children a copy. A priceless gift!

Using Creative Memories amazing Storybook Creator Plus software you can create digital books of various sizes - 12 x 12, 8 1/2 x 11, 8 x 8 and 5 x 7

We know have hardcover and softcover available.

We have lots of great digital designs that look beautiful with heritage photos.

My mother used one of our free downloads - Vintage Blues

There are other templates that are availabe to purchase which also are wonderful with heritage photos.

You may want to look at:


Jewel Heritage


Beautifully Blended

All of these templates are available in 12 x 12, 8 1/2 x 11 and 8 x 8

If you are new to digital scrapbooking I would highly recommend you start with one of our Predesigned Templates

All you have to do is drag and drop your pictures into beautifully layed out and designed pages. Add your journaling and then push a button to have it printed and it arrives at your door in about a week -how easy is that!!!

If my 70 something year old mother can do it - you can do it!!
