This is your opportunity to inspire our followers and share your creative genius with the world!
What we're looking for
We need creative and committed team members who are as passionate about our product as we are! We want crafters willing to promote Colorbök and Making Memories on their own blogs or websites as well.

You’ll be expected to create well-written blog posts that showcase our products with tutorials, projects, and stories.
We are asking for a commitment of at least six months with one blog post per month. This call is open to everyone, regardless of geographic location!

How to enter
Send photos of 3 recent layouts, cards or projects. Chose images that highlight your skills and individuality. Don't feel like you have to fit a certain style! We want to see what makes your projects uniquely YOU! The projects can be previously published and do not have to use Colorbök products… though it would certainly be nice!

Here is the Believe line in action! Check out these great projects from Guest Designer, April Walker from Scrapper Forever.
Briana Johnson designed this gorgeous set of three cards. These cards are a perfect example of how you can add a stkr.it to any project that you would normally do. Briana wanted to share some photos of her daughter in the card she was sending so created this cute hidden pocket in the front with a tag that has the QR code on it! Making Memories has partnered up with Stkr.it to share inspiration on how you can use this new product.
Here is that cute hidden tag - this is a great way to add the stkr.it without having it be distracting on your layout or card.
We are loving all of this amazing inspiration for the Stkr.it program. Making Memories has partnered up with Stkr.it on some projects this week! Today's project was inspired by a recent move and sharing the a new home with friends and family who aren't close by. What a great way to update the ones you love with your new address and give them a personal "tour" of your new place!

Who doesn't want to add the extra personal touch to a layout, invite, annoucement, etc? We live in such a digital world, we think you are going to love this! Making Memories is partnering up with Stkr.it as in they introduce this to the market place.

We are so excited to have Kris Berc featured on our blog today! Kris is so talented and has created a stunning project using the Sarah Jane Collection. She is such a great sport and borrowed some cute pictures of her nephew to create the "boy" page for us!

We love this adorable pinwheel she created with the paper and layered with a die-cut and pinwheel brad.
It is all about the small touches - how great are those star die-cuts covered with a little glitter glue!
Thanks Kris! We can't wait to have you featured again!
Today we have two adorable cards to share with you! These were both created using parts of the Sarah Jane Collection and Modern Millinery Collection, with old MM goodies. Can you believe it is practically fall? Where did summer go?
Did we mention that you can find Sarah Jane at your local scrapbook store! It has shipped.
"Thank you" Card
We were inspired by this gorgeous card from pinterest and wanted to re-create this adorable card. You first create a gatefold card and cut out little mini banners out of patterned papers. Attach every other one to each side of the gatefold and embellish!
Next we were inspired by buttons. Combining a variety of buttons to create this adorable card and finishing it off with word stickers!
Can you believe it is already September... before we know it is going to be Christmas! Today we wanted to share this adorable Christmas bag created with Making Memories new Believe Collection and TPC's bags.
