August 2005

Welcome to my newly designed newsletter! In addition to showcasing new products, I hope to include new tips or ideas in every issue which will hopefully help you make good progress on your album projects. After recently moving back into my house with my boyfriend, I finally got a chance to unpack my Creative Memories supplies and start scrapping again after 2 months! I had Creative Memories withdrawal and can't wait to finish my copy of our family album (my brother and sister already have theirs)!

I am excited about the new products we are offering this summer from new paper packs to new shape makers and fun new products for younger scrapbookers (but you can use them too!). Our new August products were designed in anticipation for Croptoberfest (held later this year in, well, October) and showcase beautiful ambers, oranges and jewel tones - perfect for your fall, back-to-school as well as travel and nature albums!

If you would like to place an order, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.

New Products for August
June & July Product Highlights

Album Prices Increase

One important piece of news is that some of the album and refills are increasing in price. For 10 years, Creative Memories has been able to keep their album prices the same but they can no longer avoid increasing prices in order to maintain their high standards of quality.

To make it easier for you to customize albums, Creative Memories has lowered the price of most of the 12x12 coversets. Coversets are the front and back pieces, spine, coverholders and album straps of a Creative Memories album but do not contain any album pages. This means you can use whatever color or style of pages you like!

Prices take effect on August 14th, so please place your orders by August 10th before prices go up!
