As soon as I opened my box of January new Creative Memories products, I snatched up this album and its coordinating 8X8 scrapbook kit (LOVE THESE - cM keep em coming!) and pre-decorated it entirely.
Here is the album. Click the link to purchase one (or more) from my website.

I have a FABULOUS lesson planned about this album, just perfect for this time of year. I will be teaching this lesson at my workshop tonight (no worries cM folks, I'll post my ideas on the forum) but I can't discuss my great idea for the Love Album on my blog here - just in case my DH (dear Hubby) reads my blog - doubtful that he will or ever does or ever has - but there's always a first for everything!
Nonetheless, I did take photos of all my page spreads - done with a minimal amount of tools (I think I only used a tearing tool and a tape runner and it took 30 mins to decorate the whole thing). The papers were so deliciously yummy and beautious. I almost couldn't stand to use them. There was one shade of a dull green in the decor that I realized I used almost none of - but most of the papers were just breathtaking. OMG - cM can you PLEEEEASE climb on the fabric design bandwagon? Maybe I've said this before but as a quilter and sewer, I can just picture myself wrapped up in fabric that mimics the gorgeous designs of our scrapbook paper.
If you haven't seen the album and designs in person - buy one, borrow one, find a consultant and peek at theirs - in person.
Enjoy the album (no time to edit out the carpet or get really close up on each page - maybe later - but I'm really pressed for time today and wanted to share these lessons for one of my DL who will be hosting a crop tomorrow night).
Blogger has a mind of its own when it comes to adding photos to a post and it doesn't allow me to rotate, crop or improve the images. I usually do that in my Memory Manager software before posting on the blog - but sorry, no time today, so I hope you at least can get a feel for the album designs. If I get reminders to do so, maybe I'll post some closeups and better photos later, but for now, this is what I've got!
Remember to check the cmc-network forum for my LOVE album idea and lesson - probably sometime this weekend. If you don't see it soon, send me an email reminder to cmsher(at)gmail(dot)com and I'll get to it!
