Creative Memories Content CD Trial

I have quite a few Creative Memories content CD’s still left from a while back that I’m trying to determine if they will work with the Artisan program (the replacement program for StoryBook Creator)

My question…  Is there anyone out there who would like a Content CD FREE to try to register it with your Artisan program?  This is more of a “technical” test than anything else.  I’m just trying to see if it works or not.  It’s more of a computer-testing issue.

The CD is your free.

If you are able to enter the Activation Code in your Artisan program and it works… you just got yourself some free content.  If it doesn’t work, no harm done.

If you want it, let me know.  I’ll pay for shipping within the United States.

Here’s a list of what I’ve got…

  • Click and Fill III (2)
  • Click and Fill IV
  • Enchanted
  • Wedding Fresh Spring and Radian Summer (2)
  • Preppy Patterns
  • Reminisce Travel (2)
  • Be Young Boy and Girl
  • Fabulous (2)

Let me know if you’d like to try it out and which CD you want me to send you.  If you don’t know what each content has, you can take a look at: PDF Previews for Art Kits

So what’s up with Creative Memories and Ahni and Zoe?

So, Creative Memories and Ahni and Zoe are in the fritz, again. I tried to look at the Ahni and Zoe catalog online today while I was going to compare prices for 12×12 pages and protectors and well… the site is closed. This is what you get:   According to their facebook site, the last day to order items was on August 21… Capture I also noticed that when you go to the Ahni & Zoe url (http://www.ahniandzoe.com) the site changes to the url “www.creativememories.com“. Does this mean that the name “Ahni & Zoe” is going away and “Creative Memories” as a name and brand, will be back?  It is yet to be seen. The site says “We’re working on a new business that will combine the best of Creative Memories and Ahni & Zoe” and that they “expect to be up and running in October”.  They also mention that to stay in touch, we should follow the “Creative Memories” facebook acccout at www.facebook.com/creativememories. So with that said… we will have to see what’s going on in October.

In the meantime… where do you get 12×12 pages and 12×12 protectors?

Thanks to one of my readers, Pat Cochran, the strap-hinge 12×12 pages that fit the Creative Memories albums can be found at none other than…. Hobby Lobby!

From StoryBook Creator and Memory Manager to Artisan and Historian

I was a customer with Creative Memories for over 17 years and a Consultant for three of those years. I always loved their albums, pages, tools, etc. but one of the things that I had learned to love was their digital scrapbooking line with StoryBook Creator and Memory Manager.

With the sale of Creative Memories to create Ahni and Zoe, their digital line was dissolved.

To my surprise, CM informed that their StoryBook Creator and Memory Manager programs were developed by a company named Panstoria. I was happy to know that CM sold their rights back to Panstoria and now Panstoria sells the same exact programs (with some nice enhancements) under the names “Artisan” for StoryBook Creator and “Historian” for Memory Manager.

Yes, I had to repurchse the programs eventually because since CM doesn’t exist anymore, the programs need to be ‘authenticated’ with an existing company. The nice part was that CM used to sell the SBC program for almost $70 vs Panstoria selling Artisan for only $39.95. Great deal for all involved plus we get to continue to produce great pages and digital scrapbooks.
