Wednesdays at 5pm CST

Many of you may have heard the news:  Noreen Smith (our favorite 123 Layouts creator) has taken a job with Creative Memories Home Office!  This is super exciting!  She will be helping to create products AND projects that help us use the tools more efficiently & creatively as well as get our albums completed.

To kick-off her new role, Noreen is jumping right in with a weekly "live" entitled Fast & Fun Projects with Noreen.   You can join her on Wednesdays at 5pm CST on the CM YouTube Channel or the CM Virtual Crop Facebook Group.  If you can't make it at that time, each session is recorded and can be watched (from either location) at your convenience.

Noreen's first session highlighted the new Envelope & Bow Creator product.  Watch & be amazed.  I really didn't think I need this product because I don't make a lot of cards.  Oh, but the other things you can create!  Wow!  This product has sold out (but will return in early 2023), so watch the video and add it to your wish list.

Join Noreen on Wednesday October 26 to create a complete 8 x 8 album with a Fast Album Formula!  Want a supply list so you can create along with her?  Check out Week 1's post (from 10/19/22) and scroll towards the bottom.

Did you know CM had a YouTube channel?  I didn't - I knew there were a lot of videos out there but I didn't realize they were all housed in one spot.  Visit here:

Scroll down just a bit and you will see the recordings (and an informative post with further instructions).

If you are a Facebook person, join the Creative Memories Virtual Crop fb group.  It's got a lot of great ideas from all of the virtual crops & sketches along with so much more.  Once you've joined, go to the Featured tab and scroll down a bit until you find the Fast & Fun with Noreen signage (it's pink like the image in this post).

I hope you get the chance to participate live and/or watch at a later time these weekly opportunities!  Even if you don't think it's a product you want/need or already know how to use, check it out - she's always great amazing ideas or some tip that will be helpful in your page completion.

If you have any questions, please let me know.  If you watch, please let me know (and I'd love to know who is attending & we can chat about what we learn)!
