Creative Memories Storybook Software

I have an absolute and total love of the Creative Memories Storybook software. No I am not a consultant nor am I getting benefits for sharing this love! I have created so many cards, scrapbooks, gifts, art . . .I could go on with this software. It is easy to learn if you want to spend just a little time investment. So I wanted to share this great invitation that I made for my sweet friend's 40th birthday using the software. We decided on a lemon/lime theme since the party will be in the middle of July. I created the lemon/lime using water colors on watercolor paper (I admit this step might not be easy if you aren't an artist). Using my scanner, I scanned the image into the Creative Memories Memory Manager software (which I also love). Created my storybook using a custom size 5X7" page.

Using three colors, backgrounds from the Cottage Garden paper kit and the pink mat from the Delight Shopper Diva collection and my own art, I was able to create a unique and fun invitation!
The final product looks a little different than above. Once printed and put together I will post more. Just wanted to share this information!!! If you have any questions about how I did this please feel free to email me. This is such great software and easy to use!
Now after talking about all those lemon and limes I need a Corona!!! :-) Cheers!

  1. Hi Vickie,
    I just love the lemon lime theme...such great colors. I always loved the idea of the Creative Memories software, but if I start another hobby I'll go broke! I laughed out loud at your last comment to me about me becoming a follower. I know exactly how you feel. I still get giddy when I get a new follower now. Your husband will also think you're nuts when you start talking about your new blog friends like you've known them for years. An example would be: I would say to my husband..."you know my blog friend Vickie, the one who likes red trucks like I do".
    Too funny! Blogging is such a wonderful way of meeting new people with the same interests and ideas and truly...friendships are made.
    Talk to you soon,
