Family Heritage Storybook

For Christmas this year my 79 year old mother created a digital storybook for her 3 children.  She did the same thing last year.  I shared last year's storybook with you here.

Creating family heirloom digital albums is very easy with our Storybook Creator 3.0 program and our beautiful predesigned pages.

My mother created this years book about her grandmother and used our Vintage Predesigned Pages.

With a little start up instruction from me she was able to drag and drop her pictures onto the pages, add her text and she was done. 

For those of you who have been shying away from digital scrapbooking because you are a little intimidated, don't be!  If my 79 year old mother can do it - you can do it!
Since I am pretty sure neither of my siblings reads this blog I am going to share a link to the storybook my mom created so you can see it for yourself.

If you don't have an account at Creative Memories' digital center you will need to create one in order to few it.

Just follow this link to my mom's new storybook!

Project Center Recipe Holder Idea

I hosted my annual First Line Holiday Breakfast on Saturday.  Usually we do a page exchange.  Everyone brings a pre decorated page wrapped up.  We then do an exchange by picking numbers etc.

This year I decided to change things up a bit and instead of pages I said they needed to bring something that was made using an idea they got off the Project Center.  There is so much amazing stuff there!!!

For my gift for the exchange I decided to make something from the Traditional Ideas (there are also tons of Digital ideas in another section.)

From the Holiday Project Idea of the Day I made the fun recipe holder.  The only change I made was to make it a bit bigger so it would accomodate 4 x 6 pictures and recipe cards. 

I used paper and stickers from the Primary Christmas Addition Pack

I created the recipes and the photo cards in Storybook Creator 3.0

I used our new scoring blade on the new rotary cutter to score the cardboard so it would fold and form a stand.

I thought it turned out pretty cute and was a fun way to share some holiday cookie recipes!

Do you have a favorite project you have made from the Photo Center?

Problems sending jpeg

OK so I guess the jpegs for the advent calendars are too big to email.  I have them uploaded to my Costco account so if you are a member of Costco I can send you a link to share the album so if you still want them (so sorry!) send me another email and let me know you belong to Costco and I will send you the Costco share link.  You can then just order them through Costco and have them printed there at your local Costco.
