creative memories projects: Shine series

I'm so excited to share my first batch of Creative Memories projects.  All of these were created with the Shine paper and photo mat pack.  You can find full instructions to recreate them up on the Project Center.

  First up, some of my goals for this year.  I added the text to the photos in Photoshop before I printed them.  I used the tag maker to create a grid background for my photos and embellishments.  All of the embellishing you see I did with patterned paper and punches/tools--no pre-made anything.  I love all the fun punches and tools CM has to offer!  (Full instructions here.)

Next is a two page spread about the first real snow last year.  As soon as there was enough to make a snowball out of, my kids were all out there playing in it.  I used the snowmaker and the snowflake mini pocket punch, together with the circle maker to create these fun embellishments.  The bottom border was made using the wave tearing tool.  (Full instructions here.)


Last I made this winter card.  Again, I used the snowmaker and snowflake mini pocket punch with the circle maker.  I love the geometric patterns of this series--so fun to work with!  (Full instructions here.)

These were so fun to make, and I've got some more to share for Wednesday so come back then.  Cheers!
