CM Is Back


Creative Memories is back. It feels like Dr. Seuss and The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.

To review, we have had two bankruptcies, one new company, and a liquidation. As we left, Flowerdale had acquired the name, patents, and some production equipment.

Today Flowerdale announced their plans for the future. It’s both good news and bad.

I’ll go with the good news first. The good news is that Flowerdale is bringing back four bookcloth coversets and white, spargo, and natural refill pages. In addition, Advisors (their new name for Consultants) can earn lots of money, with sales commissions up to 40% and upline commissions up to 8%. The Flowerdale career plan is definitely simpler than previous plans, and that is a good thing.

Now the bad news. Ahni and Zoe are still with us, and there is no sign that the sky-high Creative Memories prices will come down any time soon.


About Mark Mizen

At Creative Memories, I evaluate photographic products and related materials so that today's memories are not lost to the future and then communicate this information to Creative Memories Consultants and their customers. My interests extend from preservation of traditional photographs to the production of photo books to the expected longevity of electronic image files. My long-term objective is to direct the development of technology that meets consumers needs for high-quality products.

    Mark, for those of us not in the loop anymore, any and all info you can share will be greatly appreciated.

    Would like to know who will do their product testing

  3. Karen says:

    I’m confused. Will Flowerdale be using the creative Memories name? And who owns Ahni and Zoe now? Are these two companies related at all?

  4. Sally says:

    It appears to me that they are much more trending to A&Z as they will start out with 12 albums with predesigned pages like A&Z had and only 4 basic colors of Book Cloth albums with choices of plain pages in white, natural, spargo. Time will tell and the good thing to me is that the process and money to get involved is much less demanding.

    Thank you. Although they are not lowering the prices, they are not raising the prices.

  6. What is the cost of becoming an Advisor with the new CM.
