I really don’t like to throw away paper – I know I give Tessa a hard time about show often she cuts up those little remnants to make tiny photo corners and other page accents to use in her scrapbook layouts, but my secret habit is how much effort I spend to keep the Creative Memories Jumbo CCS Pattern page remnants in useable condition. I just never know when I may need one!
I created these two scrapbook pages for Creative Life Scrapbooking using remnants of the Simple Frame CCS Pattern and the Jumbo Circle. For instructions, please see the CLS Facebook page.
This example uses the Creative Memories Jumbo Simple Frame Custom Cutting System Pattern with the Seaside Collection
Stitching detail and Seaside embellishments and stickers complete the layout design. It’s all set to add photos!
A quick snip of the scissors and folding of the flaps allows more of the photos to be shown.
This scrapbook layout sample uses the Creative Memories Jumbo Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern and the Sparks of Magic Collection

It’s hard to believe it’s been one year since we started our Power Hour scrapbooking classes. It’s been an wild ride and we are so thankful for for all who have joined our classes live or watched them on replay. Your support has been amazing!
For the October 2021 Power Hour, we circled back to where we started last October – with Halloween themed layouts. Last year we had a wicked time with Creative Memories’ Wicked Cute collection and this year is all about Halloween fun with Full Moon Fun.
Our Power Hour class is focused on creating versatile layouts with the core tools from Creative Memories. For this month we use the following tools:
13×13 Cutting Mat
Adhesives (Repositionable & Permanent)
Creative Memories Border Maker System with chain-style Border Maker Cartridge
Our samples are made with the Full Moon Fun collection, but you can use any combination of papers and cardstock that work with your photos. You will want to add in other decorative elements as desired!
One of the best parts of the Power Hour scrapbook classes is the sharing that happens in our Facebook group after class! Dozens of examples flood the page within hours of the class ending and we are always blown away by the creativity! After the September class, attendees showed us how well our single page layouts could be paired together to create a two page layout and the results were stunning!
Tessa hacked the retired page template from old Creative Memories, showing us how easy it is to mix and match up to 6 photos or papers on a layout. The clean lines of this design make it a classic and Tessa’s measurements will allow you to cut your papers and photos with confidence.
Featured Collection – Hello Autumn (2020)
This layout highlights that you do not need to cut a full 12×12″ piece of paper when using Creative Memories’ Jumbo CCS Patterns. The layout showcases the Jumbo Circle Pattern but could be done with any other of the Jumbo CCS shapes.
Our August Power Hour scrapbook class was a continuation of our overall summer theme – quick, easy, VERSATILE layouts that will have you making pages and progress with plenty of time left over to enjoy the summer days.
