Club CK: FAQs


What is Club CK?

Club CK is the place where scrapbookers will flock for creative inspiration. A dynamic website created by scrapbookers, for scrapbookers, and powered by Creating Keepsakes magazine.


Why is it called a club?

Readers and online users of Creating Keepsakes magazine already belong to a dynamic community, so we felt an online club would be a valuable extension of this community. As a club, there are two different types of membership levels: social and premium. Social members will enjoy all of the wonderful community-based features of the site such as busy message boards, a searchable gallery, personal blogs, and lots of how-to articles to inspire and instruct them - at no cost. Premium members of Club CK can participate in all the community features that social members can and they will also receive:

  • A yearly subscription to the brand new Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks magazine, a four-times-per-year special issue from Creating Keepsakes
  • A welcome kit with Club CK exclusive stickers and goodies
  • A FREE admission to a CK Convention (plus a free class!)
  • Digital font downloads to use on your projects-over 125 free fonts
  • Valuable shopping discounts and deals from our proud sponsors
  • Digital access to dozens of Creating Keepsakes magazines

A social membership is free. An annual premium membership is $34.95--that's less than $3 a month!


What about Creating Keepsakes' current community at Will the message boards and gallery links stay active?

Because also serves our sister publication, Paper Crafts, the gallery and message board will stay active. We do urge all of our current members to visit the community at and become members of the new club. Spread the news and invite your friends to join the fun! Also, our Creating Keepsakes editors, Dream Team and Contributing Writers will be active in the communities, galleries and blogs sharing insider tips and ideas.


Why are you starting a new community when the community at is already in-place?

As some are already aware, the infrastructure at has very limited capabilities. Creating Keepsakes' new owners, New Track Media, are highly invested in our publication and want to give our online users what they have been asking for: a searchable gallery, direct contact and interaction with CK's editors and an extensive library of videos, podcasts, digital archives of back issues and more.  Our new owners already run other communities on an online platform that supports what our online users want, and now Creating Keepsakes will join this community structure in order to deliver these features better than we've been able to on other platforms.

I can't wait
I am looking forward to the new site and opportunities.
Thanks for the info
Definitely - thanks for posting this. After I submitted my e-mail on the sign-in site, I was afraid I'd JUST subscribed to something for an unknown price but KNEW CK wouldn't do that to me! Thanks for 2 options. Will see how it goes!
