Using Creative Memories Tools to The Max

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am a Guest Blogger for Creative Memories. I am also a Creative Memories Album Advisor.

Today’s Blog post is all about using Creative Memories tools. Hands down, Creative Memories, in my opinion has the best tools. I have always been a tools gal. I own tons of tools and I love using them in my layouts. Our tools are easy to use and will add a special touch to your project.

Here are several ideas I have created using Creative Memories tools.

Idea #1 This layout was created using our paper trimmer, the shape maker system, and the 2 way corner rounder

    Sarah,
    LOVE your ideas. Thanks for sharing. As a CM advisor for 15 years, I enjoy all the great CM tools. Your use of the older patterns in the cutting system reminds me to go back and use some tools I haven’t used in awhile. I like the combination of shapes and your choice of paper. Beautiful!
