Begins Monday, May 1st at 12pm CST

Happy May!  Despite the cooler weather this weekend, I just know spring is around the corner.   I enjoy the "sweatshirt" weather in the spring & fall (and I have A LOT of sweatshirts that I haven't been getting to wear), so I hope we actually get a spring this year rather than hyper-speeding straight to summer!  You will be thinking "summer" when you see what Creative Memories has in store for us for the start of May.

Note:  Beginning Monday at 11:30am CST, you will notice a "Queue" system in place on product launch days.  The pre-queue will be turned on at 11:30am CST and the queue will begin at 12pm CST.  The queue is designed to help manage web traffic on the CM site during high volume times (like a product launch); the queue system will be turned off when site traffic slows.  When you enter the site, you will want to sign in to your account.  Then, when you are done, close your browser tab.  View FAQs here.

Starting Monday, you can dive right into the Sweet Summer collection! Drawing inspiration from the HOT 2020 Electric Summer collection's artwork style and palette, it's perfect for carefree, barefoot summer days filled with sweet treats, pool days and beach trips.

The Sweet Summer Album Cover is made of Caribbean bookcloth material and features a setting sun over glistening water in gleaming teal-blue metallic foil.

The Sweet Summer Paper Pack (12/pk) features patterns of diagonal stripes, wavy tiles, popsicles, suns, beach blanket stripes, starfish and waves, and a grid of sizzlin' summer icons and phrases like "Happiness comes in waves," "Sunshine on my mind" and "Lazy days are the best." Flip through the papers here.

The Sweet Summer Stickers feature icons like a beach bag with a floppy sunhat and sunglasses, scuba gear, sweet treats and cool drinks, plus phrases like "Perfect weather, "One crazy summer" and "A flip-flop kind of day."

The Sweet Summer Variety Mat Pack is infused with easy breezy summer icons and phrases like "Stayin' cool," "Fun in the sun" and "Sweet summer memories." Flip through the mats here.

You'll want to put on a pair of sunglasses — the Sweet Summer Embellishments are HOT with icons like sunglasses with the phrase "Pool time," a sunset with the phrase "Endless summer," the word "Summer" surrounded by palm trees, popsicles, hibiscus flowers, a starfish, sunglasses, and a bright sun and two laser frames — one with seashell borders and the other with waves.

Add seaside vibes to your layouts with the Sea Star Chain Border Maker Cartridge, which creates continuous sea star borders for layouts of cruises, tropical vacations and romantic getaways, snorkeling, boating, beach days and fishing by the sea.

The Sweet Summer collection is also available as a Fast2Fab™ Bundle, which includes the album, embellishments, a Tape Runner and a Black Dual-Tip Pen. The album and refill pages are also available sold individually. Flip through the pages here.

Now that you've taken a refreshing swim through the collection, you're definitely going to want it all and with the Sweet Summer Buy-It-All Bundle, you can! It includes all the decorative products in the collection and the Sea Star Chain Border Maker Cartridge, and you'll get 10% OFF!

But you won't want to wait because the Buy-It-All Bundle with discounted pricing will only be available until Friday, May 12, at noon CT or while supplies last. At that time, the buy-it-all option will go away and the decorative bundle for Sweet Summer will be available for purchase at full price.

Starting Monday, the fan-favorite 2018 Sunburst Recipe Template is BACK by popular demand! Shine on your sunniest, happiest moments with this template that lets you create layouts that shine bright with various shapes — from squares and rectangles to radiating diagonal lines to create sunbeams.
