Page Patterns Tabs (left), Page Patterns Fall 2005 (center) and
Color Confidence Fall 2005 (right)
($ 4.00, $5.50 and $5.50 respectively)

The 80 new layouts in the Page Patterns Fall 2005 Edition will help spark your creativity and help you get your pages done in no time! Layout ideas are divided into the following categories: family, baby boy, baby girl, birthday child, birthday adult, school, fall, heritage, Halloween, Thanksgiving, celebration, vacation, youth and borders!

The Page Patterns Tabs has been updated to include the new designs, bonus border ideas and Color Confidence Tabs. The tabs explain color theory and present the color wheel as a tool for putting together layouts that look great! We've also added more tabs so you'll know exactly where to find what you're looking for. The Page Patterns Binder (not shown, $6 sold separately) is also available to help you keep your layout ideas, handouts and page patterns handy and organized.

Color coordination means speed and versatility. So our papers, pens and ABC/123 stickers were designed to coordinate and work together. Now we've taken the next step. Introducing Color Confidence, which is a new teaching tool that shows you how to create layouts based on the color wheel. This new systems takes the guesswork out of coordinating colors, making it easier than ever to create beautiful layouts!

Short Cuts Cool and Short Cuts Warm ($7 each)

Recently Creative Memories introduced the tonal paper with the Shades of Color and Perfect Fit Paper Packs. In following this trend, we now have a quick and easy way to complement those papers with our new Short Cut Pre-Cut Paper Packs! The Short Cuts in Cool and Warm color families have updated die-cut patterns so you have more layout options. The packaging insert uses the same set of photos with a variety of colors to demonstrate the versatility of these new short cuts!

The new Short Cuts packs include seven sheets of solid milled 10x12 paper, each in a different color. Each sheet is cut into 13 die-cut pieces including strips, triangles, squares, and rectangles!

**TIP** - If you also want Short Cuts on printed/patterned papers, our Perfect Fit papers have the Short Cuts grid printed on the back so you can cut them out using your 12" Straight Trimmer!

Bright, Jewel and Neutral Snap Packs, $10 each

Last year we introduced the Pastel Snap Pack and this month we've got the new Bright, Jewel and Neutral Snap Packs. The Bright Snap Pack can be used for themes like summer, friends, kids and birthdays. The Jewel Snap pack works well for family reunion, vacation (especially wine trips!) and fall themes - it also complements the new Kaleidescope Eggplant Album (introduced last month). The Neutral Snap Pack complements layouts such as wilderness, fathers, beach trips, heritage or just about anything!

Speed tools like these help you complete album projects quickly. The included booklet features page layout ideas to help you complete an entire 7x7 Sentiments Album in as little as two hours! Each Snap Pack includes sticker strips/sheets, printed photo mats, die-cut shapes and a layout booklet for completing a 7x7 album.

**Gift Idea** - Have a baby shower coming up? A birthday party? Want a personal gift, but not sure what to give? A pre-decorated Sentiments 7x7 Album is the perfect solution! I've given pre-decorated 7x7 Pink Sentiments albums as baby shower gifts to friends who were expecting little girls. It makes it quick and easy for them to add photos and they'll definitely remember you every time they look through the album!

Jumbo Great Length Stickers (Red & Pink, Orange & Amber, Yellow & Chamois,
Green & Olive, Blue & Aqua, Purple & Eggplant, and Neutral)
$4.50 for each set of two

Following the theme of tonal papers and tonal short cuts, we now have tonal Jumbo Great Length stickers! These new sticker packs help you coordinate with all of our papers and pens. They are now "Jumbo" because they are two inches wider than our previous Great Length Stickers. Each pack contains one sheet of a brighter, sassier color scheme and one of a richer, classier color scheme. Each sheet contains 27 stickers in a variety of squares, rectangles and strips making it quick and easy to enhance your pages!
