Creative Memories has hit my radar screen several time in the last month or so. I’d heard from my CM contact in their marketing department that things were a-changing, and he wasn’t kidding! Let’s check out a few recent changes / announcements:
Sales & Promotions: CM held a rare 40% off sale in late June (now over) on some of their popular items. Another promotion kicked off yesterday (Aug 1, 2010) for their new 12×12 coverset design.
New Logo: Check out the new logo (below) revealed last week! In fact, CM says they want help naming the little blue “thing” in the “o” in memories. You can visit the CMLife blog here to enter your suggestion. If your suggestion is chosen, you’ll win a new point & shoot camera.
What do you think of the new logo???
New Partnership with Provo Craft! While rumors swirled last week and images had already been released, the below press release actually went-out today… (sorry about the font issues in my paste below!)
Creative Memories To Offer Exclusive CricutÃ‚Â® Cartridges from Provocraft
Partnership is a first in the scrapbooking industry
ST. CLOUD, MINN. Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Aug.1, 2010 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Creative Memories and Provo Craft today announced a partnership to offer exclusive artwork on two new CricutÃ‚Â® Cartridges – Cheerful Seasons and Reminisce Accents. The partnership is a first in the scrapbooking industry.
Creative Memories pioneered modern scrapbooking nearly 25 years ago and Provo Craft revolutionized the paper crafting industry with the 2006 launch of the CricutÃ‚Â® Personal Electronic Cutter, a portable machine that uses cartridges to cut paper, vinyl, chipboard, and fabric into thousands of shapes and fonts.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve worked together to create two exclusive new cartridges that marry the Creative Memories style with Cricut convenienceÃ¢â‚¬Â, says Eve Miller, Product Marketing Manager at Creative Memories. Ã¢â‚¬Å“This partnership provides a new source of art and design that will help our customers be even more creative.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The new cartridges feature the Reminisce Accents and the Cheerful Seasons designs and fonts. Together, the pair of cartridges provide hundreds of unique designs in a variety of sizes. The cartridges are available for purchase from Creative Memories Consultants and on www.creativememories.com.
The new cartridges are compatible with the Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter., CricutÃ‚Â® Create, Cricut ExpressionÃ‚Â®, GypsyÃ¢â€žÂ¢ Handheld Design Studio, and Cricut CakeÃ¢â€žÂ¢.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Launching new content is always exciting,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Matt Wilburn, Chief Marketing Officer at Provo Craft. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We get to see what incredibly creative people do with it and it absolutely inspires us.Ã¢â‚¬Â
