Creative Memories Crop: Locally Grown

I am so excited to share that there is a Virtual Summer Crop happening today with Creative Memories. It is exciting because usually crops only happen in the Spring and Fall, but this year they are having one in the Summer! Yay!

The crop starts TODAY, July. 10th at 1:00 pm, so if you didn’t know about it but want to join in, its not too late!

How to Join

Go to Creative Memories Facebook Group to join, this is where they will post all of the challenges and where you can post your completed layouts. To see the schedule for this weekend you can go to the announcements at the top of the group.

The best thing about these virtual crops is that you can do it from the comfort of your home, AND you don’t have to complete the challenges immediately as they are posted, you have until Sunday, July.12th by 11:59pm Central Time to complete the challenges. If you only manage to complete a couple THAT’S OK! Whatever you complete will give you an entry into the draw for a prize for that challenge.

How to Participate

  1. Join the #CM Facebook Group
  2. Review the Virtual Crop 411 instructions
  3. Gather all of the Creative Memories Supplies (stickers/paper) that you have to complete the layouts (see below)
  4. Start working on the challenges as they are posted in the FB group
  5. Complete the challenges by Sunday July. 12th, 11:59 pm CST
  6. Wait for prizes to be rewarded to see if you won!

*If you are having a hard time finding the group or joining, Contact Me and I can send you an invite!

Creative Memories Supplies

In order to participate you must use Creative Memories products for each layout. In the group it says to use predominantly #CM supplies. If you don’t have any you can still complete the challenges using the layouts as inspiration, however you will not be eligible to submit for a prize.

If your interested in purchasing some supplies for the next crop (in August) or for personal use, you can visit Janet Laybolt’s Website to order! You can also contact her directly, she is our local consultant here in the North. She also conducts local crops as well and is hoping to do one this fall as long as the restrictions allow it. Stay tuned for that information coming in September. If you’d like to join the local Scrapbook Group on Facebook, that is where you can find inspiration, deals and more from two local consultants.

For the Virtual Crop happening today, I plan to work on some garden pages using the Locally Grown Paper Pack, and Locally Grown Stickers. This set features Veggies and Fruit in beautiful patterns which will work perfectly for all of my veggie garden pictures! An added bonus, if you like this set its ON SALE right now, and there are other garden paper packs too!

In my garden, I have experimented with raised beds, square foot gardening and green house gardening. I am so excited to scrapbook these photos and display how my kids have gotten involved in my passion for gardening! One of their favourite things to do in the garden is to water the plants.

I hope to share more on my garden experiences in the future. Northern gardening is a whole new way of gardening but I am happy to say I have found success with it! Stay tuned for that story!

If you’d like to stay updated with my posts please subscribe to my blog! This would greatly support me and keep you up to date with my most recent material. You can look forward to seeing material on Cricut sign tutorials, scrapbook projects, crops and veggie gardening!

National Scrapbooking Day 2020

It excites me to announce National Scrapbooking Day 2020 #NSD #2020 starts tomorrow May. 2, 2020. It is held every year on the first Saturday in May. I first discovered the celebration of this day in 2019 when our local Scrapbooking Consultants held a NSD crop! All the ladies from the northern communities got together in one room to scrapbook, chat and enjoy a creative day together! Each person received a scrapbooking kit which included cute paper and stickers. That particular crop was with Creative Memories Consultant, Janet Laybolt. This year we were supposed to have another one however with the #pandemic in full swing we were unable to meet together. (Side note: the #CM kit this year is SO cute!) In place of that crop, I plan to attend the Creative Memories online crop, NSD 2020 Worldwide Virtual Crop which has already begun!

Every year so many Scrapbooking companies do something to celebrate NSD. See links below to check out the events happening online:

  • Join Scrapbook & Cards Today on their blog at 9:00am tomorrow (May. 2nd) for their NSD event!
Check out their online store here!

There is SO much inspiration happening this weekend, I hope you can join in and be inspired! I am excited to engage in the events this weekend and continue working on my new 2020 Scrapbooking project that I will be sharing about soon! Have a fantastic National Scrapbooking weekend!

I will be posting whatever I make on Instagram! Follow me here

I’d love to hear what your planning to work on or planning to attend! Please share with me in the comments or send me an email.
