As CM looks forward to bringing new goodies to the line in April, they will be saying goodbye to a few items. The Unwrap the Magic Fast2Fab and its friends are now set while supplies last (don't fret, a new holiday album is coming your way in October). Sand Shimmer Blossom in Silver and Blue and Robin Egg are also soon to be collectors' items, so you'll want to get them before they're gone.

Designer Cardstock, Custom Cutting System Blades & More!

Designer Cardstock is available to order now!   These papers are lightly textured on both sides.  One side has a hatch texture and the other side has vertical 'lines' of texture. CM Shades of Blue Designer Cardstock CM Designer Cardstock This Designer Cardstock has a white core, adding a whole new layer of color when you tear them!  samplePages

Currently there are 3 packs of Designer Cardstock available:  Shades of Red, Shades of Blue & Shades of Green.CM Designer Cardstock -

Many of the shades coordinate beautifully with elements in the Slide-In Packs and Designer Papers. samplePages

Solid core (milled) paper is in the works!  It takes much longer than the white core paper to develop so we'll have to be patient while we wait the return of an old favorite.  Until then, I’m ordering some of the Designer Cardstock…Hoping it is a great addition to my never-ending paper stash.  I’ll share my thoughts when it arrives!

The Magic of Memories

Just 1.5 minutes to watch this video but I’ll bet the warm fuzzies will last
a lot longer than that!

(Click on the photo above or visit this link to watch the video: )

I’m really, really excited about the return of some old favorite CM products as well as the launch of new ones.  It’s never been easier to earn money while doing something you love!

Feel free to contact me anytime, or check out all that's available at my site:

Free Coverset with qualifying order from CM!


Now through Monday, January 12, any order that includes four or more albums and/or coversets will receive a bonus Coverset!  There are a variety of colors and styles for the freebie coversets (all are 12x12)...even more than are shown in the above photo.  The CM team will pull them at random so it will be a fun surprise when you open your box. There is a limit to one free coverset per order.

Lots of new products available right now and even more on their way!

The best way to view these new products on my CM website is to click on “What’s New.”

Sunshine Getaway

This album features pages already beautifully printed and pre-assembled. Fun and tropical, the patterns of the pages in this album make a great complement to all your photos you wish to showcase, especially travel photos.  Page protectors also include

Click Here to view each of the predesigned pages.



There is a slight delay with the Sunshine Getaway F2F album. The cover material CM uses arrived damaged so the printer is starting over.  They take several business days to print, dry and protect, so the new ones are expected to arrive Jan 8th or 9th. As soon as they arrive, CM will open them for sale, as the team can make them to demand. CM apologies for this delay &  will work with their partner to ensure it doesn't happen again.  Just a reminder, my FB group (also called Lisa’s Workshop) is the best place to get the latest info about CM.

Not a fan of pre-designed pages?  You can easily cover the true sized 12x12 pages or the new Sand Shimmer Blossom (available in both blue & silver foil accents) would go great with the Sunshine Getaway products!

Cutting System Blade Cartridges

Welcome back, old friends!! 

Clean, precise and ergonomically comfortable, our patented Custom Cutting System has been and industry standard and fan favorite for years.  You can count on each blade for up to 500 cuts. 


More new products coming up but we’ll have to wait for mid month for the following items to be released:

12x12 Designer Cardstock Packs: Shades of Blue, Shades of Red, Shades of Green


The new cardstock is labeled “Designer” which means it will have a slight texture to it.

Corner Rounder (with two-cuts!)


11x14 Multi-Pocket Pages (to fit 11x14 Picfolios)


7" Personal Trimmer

This Personal Trimmer is like the former dark blue one from Creative Memories with the pull out drawer but it’s been upgraded!  Then drawer is just a tad deeper to accommodate more items - like the CCS blades and Corner Rounder.


12" Rotary Replacement Mat


I’m thrilled that CM is bringing back some old favorites!  Word is that they are working on the Border Maker System & cartridges and also looking into ways to incorporate the designs on the F2F albums onto the bookcloth coversets!

CM is really listening to us – both customers & Advisors. They have plans to not only bring back more products we’ve been missing but also are working on new favorites, too!    It only costs $49 to become an Advisor with CM and there are no minimums required, there is no non-compete clause and it’s a very, very simple business plan. 

If you’re thinking about signing up as a CM Advisor I’ve shared a few thoughts about that in this blog post: Thinking About Becoming a CM Advisor?

New Products from CM Coming Soon!

Coming Jan 2!

Strut Your Stuff (left) and Sunshine Getaway (right). There's a coordinating Fast2Fab Album, Paper Pack and Slide-in Pack.
Each are available separately to mix and match with coversets if bookcloth is your preference. Cobalt goes with Strut Your Stuff like Santa & elves. And Sunshine Getaway goes with the new Sand Shimmer Blossom like surf & turf. Moss looks great too.

There are more products on their way in January! 
In addition to Jan. 2, we expect a mid-month and end-of-month launch. Some product lead times are 3-5 months, so it may be a little while before new products sync up perfectly with quarterly launches. So what else is coming?
12x12 Designer Cardstock Packs: Shades of Blue, Shades of Red, Shades of Green (Wahoo!!!)
Corner Rounder
11x14 Multi-Pocket Pages (yes, really - to fit PicFolio Coversets!)
12" Rotary Replacement Mat
7" Personal Trimmer (with the drawer and everything!

There will be a 12x12 Sand Shimmer Blossom Coverset available Jan. 2 & CM needed help deciding on the foil color.

Neutrals are always in style...though sometimes it's nice to have a splash of color.
For the new Sand Shimmer Coverset, the Home Office team was evenly split. Some loved the elegance of the Sand with silver blossoms, others with a soothing sea blue.

They can only make one version, so they took a quick survey yesterday.  Whichever color gets more votes is the one they'll offer beginning next Friday (Jan. 2). 

I am so excited...for the return of old favorite products & wonderful new products but most of all because they are listening!!!
