No Peeking Grandmas!!

Need a Christmas gift idea?? I made my first calendar this year through Creative Memories! It was SO fast and easy and I am sure it will be a great Christmas gift for our Grandmas and Grandpas.

It is an 18x 12 Calendar - all you have to do is tear off the 12 x 12 part at the top of each month and slide it into our albums and you have an album done for the whole year - I am thinking that's good for me as well as the Grandmas!!

If you want to see it - go HERE. (You've been forewarned Grandmas - this is your Christmas present so any peeking will RUIN it!!!) :)

Quick & Easy Gift Ideas

Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your List!!

Gift Giving Flier US 1109

Virtual Open House

As the holiday season approaches, I’d like to help make this season especially memorable. That’s why I’m sending you a link to my Creative Memories virtual Open House. I would have loved to have an actual “open house” this year, but with the fall what it has been for us – this will be my stand-in for this season!! It’s a good one though - In less than 10 minutes, you’ll see 10 ideas, including new products, gift ideas, money-saving offers and money-earning opportunities, Creative Memories is offering in the upcoming weeks.

You can still receive Open House gifts by participating in my virtual Open House that’s available from now through Dec. 15. Watch the program, complete the attached wish list and email it to me, and I’ll set aside an attendance gift for you. Order from me or purchase $50 or more online, and I’ll give you a bonus Open House gift.
To ensure holiday delivery, you need to place your order (or have others order your wish list from me) by Dec. 12. I will be available in the coming weeks so that you can share with me how I can assist you this holiday season.

One other special – maybe you’ve considered going digital and want to spend your Christmas money on that new Storybook Creator Plus program! If so, order by Jan. 1 and I will send you a free kit to use with your digital program!

Do not feel any pressure – or if you have another consultant – please use them! I am sending this out en masse as it would replace open house invites – and thought it might be helpful to some doing Christmas shopping for others on their list!

Click here to see the Virtual Open House video – it is really VERY good!
