Creating Keepsakes - November/December 2013

As many of you know, Creating Keepsakes is about to cease publication of their regular issues.  I have LOVED Creating Keepsakes from the very beginning.  It has inspired me to be a better memory-keeper for a long time. When I was presented with the opportunity to join their team, I jumped at it.   I LOVED being a part of their team and creating for them for so many years.   It would be an understatement to say that I was very sad when I learned that CK would no longer be published.   It has been such a big part of my life. The very last regular issue of Creating Keepsakes is now on sale.    You can find out more information here about the November/December 2013 issue.

There are several aspects of this issue that I would like to bring to your attention...
1.  Look at the beautiful cover.  My dear friend Amy Mallory created this beautiful layout featuring her sweet boys.  I absolutely LOVE it!

2.  There is a digital insert included in this issue packed with inspiration. I was fortunate to play a large role in the content of the digital issue.  I wrote several tutorials, recorded two videos, wrote a couple of columns and you will also find a download of my December Daily Templates.

3.  As much as it pains me to say this, this is the very last regular issue of CK.  I would certainly get a copy if I were you.  I know you will enjoy it.

The layout below is featured in this issue.  I also included a video tutorial related to this page.  I demonstrate how to bury your title in snow (or sand).  It is a fun technique to use and I know I'm going to be using this title technique again.

All products from Designer Digitals.

Creating Keepsakes will still be having some special issues.  There will also be a new digital magazine called "Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking" that will come out in 2014.  I want to take this time to thank all of the wonderful people that I have enjoyed working with at Creating Keepsakes...you will be missed.  Thank you for the years of inspiration, hard work and dedication.   

If you don't already have it, make sure to hope on over and pick up the November/December 2013 issue of Creating Keepsakes.  


  1. I'm surely going to miss seeing CK in my mailbox. I do love a physical magazine to browse through. Thank you for all your wonderful contributions to the magazine.

  2. Thanks for the mention Jana! It is very exciting for the boys and I! I sure am looking forward to checking out your new website!! Take care!
