A Freebie, a random reduction and a sale!

A freebie, a random 99 cent reduction AND a sale?

Yes…..

Is this woman mad?

Yes….. she’s mad for a vacation (only 3 more sleeps!!) and also madly celebrating 1 whole year of designing at My Memories

But first……today is the last day of my random reductions and its a biggie….

its a Creme de la Creme  Photobook which is a 20 page template set for use in My Memories. This book normally retails for $9.99 so you’ll be making a massive 90% saving!

This photobook is really versatile. As well as the template files you also get all the individual papers and embellishments. Its 99 cents for 24 hours only.  You really will be kicking yourself if you miss this one!

And to really mark my 1st Year Anniversary I decided to reduce the price of  all my Photobooks to $5.99 until 15th August.  This is your chance to stock up on all the ones on your hit list as its the lowest price they will be all year.

This fun pirate book is by Linda and marks her debut in the photobook section of my store this week.

There are over 60 photobook templates in my store so there is something for every occasion.  From pirates to weddings – theres a book for every occasion.

Casa Deco Series is brand new in store

They are brilliant for instant scrapping and you can move and remove the elements, resize and add your own journally.  Digital scrapbooking at its best!

Made with White Lace and Promises and the White Wedding series

And for those of you who don’t have the MyMemories software I have a freebie quickpage for you too

This is the 3rd in the series of Seraphina quickpages by Ann – just as stunning as the others and a great one to add to your collection

 

Download Freebie Quickpage here

I’m not entirely sure what my internet connection will be like in the apartment when we get to Marbella so its likely that I won’t be blogging while I’m away.  Thats why I’ve arranged the photobook sale for you right through to 15th August.

But right now I need to get some sleep I’ll post some more photobook samples for you tomorrow and then that will be me signing off for a while

Happy Scrapping

Introducing CatzCovers – Stunning Quickpage Album Covers

I often get asked ‘How do I make my scrapbooking album look super special?’

So I put on my thinking cap and came up with CatzCovers, a range of brand new and gorgeous album and photobook covers.

They come in pairs of matching front and back covers in high resolution 300dpi at 12 x 12 size.

That means not only are they perfect for printing onto book covers but they also make amazing photo canvases too.

Ann of my CT even suggested that they could be printed out and displayed at special family events like parties.

They are so easy to use – just drop your own picture into the aperture.

Within MyMemories import them as an embellishment (they are all quickpages) make yourself a frame a little larger than the aperture, import your picture and send it backwards behind the cover page – simples!

You can use the pages in pairs or as stand alone pages.  All of them have plenty of room for journalling so that you can add your own unique stamp to the page.

I’d love to see what you do with them and how they look with YOUR pictures in them – feel free to post them on my CatDesignz Facebook page

So heres a little slideshow that I put together for you to see them all in one place

CatzCovers are live in store exclusively now at MyMemories.

If you haven’t used this yet…
don’t forget the
FUN SHOPPING CODE just for  you!

Enter the code: Summer5 in the PROMO code box at checkout
– good for $5.00 off a $15.00 purchase at  MyMemories.

Watch out over the next couple of weeks for matching complete photo albums!

Happy scrapping

Welcome to CatDesignz Summer Stroll Bloghop,  our bimble through digi scrapland

CatDesignz Summer Stroll Blog Hop – freebies Galore!

We have  a bunch of goodies for you to collect and heaps of inspiration along the way – even a couple of surprise stops ….without giving too much away we have quickpages and papers, overlays and templates so plenty to suit everyone

But  just before we go any further I want to invite you to a party, well a baby shower actually….

The Newest Unroes Baby Shower Invite

My wonderful friends Amanda and Brent Unroe are holding a shower for the adoption of their 5, yes 5, Bulgarian Blessings.  They travel this week to spring their beloved children from their orphanages in Bulgaria and bring them home to their forever family in Ohio.  You Can read about them on Amandas blog and their adoption story on their  God’s Rainbow in our Lives  Adoption Blog

I have kept vigil with them these last few months as they waited for the complex and frustrating legal process to complete so that these these angels can join their family.  And now the countdown is on – this week Ahnja, Keith, Nicholas, Anita and Aleshia will be orphans no more.

I made a kit specially for adoptive families – digi scrap for adoptions can be so hard to find.  Actually you might recognise it prettying up one of Amandas blogs!

Child of my Heart Adoption Kit

You’ll see in my right hand side bar that theres a chip in for the nursing fund for Pleven orphans – thats for the orphanage where little Keith has been imprisoned his whole life (I use the word advisedly as you will see in Amandas adoption blog) Until the Unroe children are home all proceeds from the sale of this kit will go to the Pleven Orpahns nursing fund.

All of the kits you’ll see on this page are available at My Memories and to celebrate our blog hop I have a sweet summer code that you can use in MyMemories store if you want to pick up some kits for your stash
