The New Name for Creative Memories is "Ahni & Zoe", according to CM FB site. The consultants will find out about the New Company on Monday and the rest of the world on Tuesday. It is a very strange name but all I care about is what they sell.

Hopefully, we have a CM Consultant that will report back to the MB about what they find out.

Although the name AHNI & ZOE is different, it's meaning fits the new line of products coming out.
It means "beautiful life".

I will share more about the new products that will be available to purchase in November.

This is a huge disappointment for those of the Original CM. It looks like all they did was copy Project Life. I just can't see the "New" CM making it. You can purchase Project Life products much cheaper then the "New" CM product. I love using my Cricut for my scrapbooking and with their "New" system, it just won't work for me.

I really do hope the "New" CM best luck but I will no longer purchase CM product. Thank goodness I have my Cricut Products BigGrin

I am surprised they don't sell white refill pages with protectors anymore. I have so many refill pages and page protecors; don't have enough albums to fill. I am bummed. Guess I will have to finish everything and see what I have left and then will sell them.

Does any consultant have any CM albums that I can buy?

I'm not a consultant but have a good friend who is. You can contact her at Stefscraps@aol.com. I know she has some albums available.

I'm posting here as a CM consultant and have to say that I am very disappointed in the new Ahni & Zoe product line offering that was released today. Please visit the catalog link a user posted earlier and see what you think. I think you'll agree.

They have totally abandoned all the loyal scrapbookers that evolved with the company and who love to design their own scrapbook pages to tell their families story in a unique way instead of just using predesigned cookie cutter type of pages and sliding photos into a page. I too feel that their product is similar to the Snap albums and Project Life that are already on the market.

For the one who posted she needs coversets, please post a reply with your e-mail address so I can contact you and let you know which coversets I have available. I'd be happy to help you out. I will just have to sell the inventory I have until it's gone, since I don't think I will be purchasing any of the new product offerings.

Very sad day in the scrapbooking industry for sure since Creative Memories was always a forerunner and looked up to for the quality and uniqueness of their products.

I agree. I am very disappointed with the new product line...and the name. I was shocked to see $9.50 for a tape runner, 8.50 for the refill. There are way more affordable, quality products out there these days. Oh well. Love my Cricut.

I was reading a lot of posts on FB from so many people. Some people said we should give the new company a chance. The prices are outrageous. Wow!

Wow, I am truly disappointed in the route they have decided to take. The catalog showed pre-designed pages with slip in photos. Where is the creativity in that?

I was a loyal CM user and consultant and now I am just speechless.

I have read several Comments on their FB and 90% are very disappointed in the product. The complaint comments pretty much have the same feeling, the "New" CM just copied Project Life, are just another photo printing company and prices are extremely high. I guess there will not be any further CM Cartridges either, such a shame, I loved them.

I am really hoping that the Corporate Office read these comments and realize they made a big mistake and consider selling what the consumers want, traditional albums, pages and protectors.

Well, one can hope Unsure

My Beautiful Life will not be including CM products anymore! What a total disapointment! Even the name is disapointing to me! Why use a name that is not English?

So many times I am so greatful I have my Cricut and my carts and can cut what I need. I especially don't like the hefty shipping so many home party and on line co. charge now a days. Just head to my workspace and Cricut it. Still using my Expression and don't want to change. If it aint broke don't fix it.

I too looked at the new catalog replacing CM and was disappointed.Sad
I really liked their adhesives and pens as well as their albums. I really like to design my own pages. Even though they offer the single size fill in pages, they are too expensive for my budget. I hope I can find something else that I like as much.Scared

Well, the name is just goofy! It gives no clue as to what the company is selling! It seems to me that this company just refuses to learn from its mistakes. I don't know how they expect to stay in business with no more product than what is in the new catalog. The catalog is certainly not exciting. Their product line does not hold a candle to Stampin Up or CTMH. I have a friend that sells it, but I will have trouble coming up with something to buy that is not overpriced.

The only people I can see this appealing to is a newbie scrapbooker, but even they will get wise and find out you can buy that kind of PL type of scrapbooking cheaper at a big box store. I always liked their photo splits and their tools and since they are selling neither I am not interested. I feel badly for long time consultants because they have gone to the opposite end of the spectrum, CM used to push getting your pictures out of slide in albums and journaling. Now they are pushing slide in albums.

I, too, am very disappointed with this new line! I started using CM products 13 years ago. I am so glad that I listened to my consultant and "journaled" on my pages. I look back now at all my albums with joy as I "told my story" on that white page (with pictures and a few embellishments). I agree it looks just like Project Life --- and much more expensive!
