so when you see that ‘must have’ kit in store sitting next to your freebie at least it won’t break the bank when you add it into your cart!!!

And talking of freebies, I kind of set a precedent at the Cinco de Scrapo Blog Train when I gave you 5 freebies so I guess I better not let any of you down this time! So yes, that means I have 5 fab freebies for you to add to your stash……. here is the first one.  Its a Thankful Calm cluster which I hope you will be able to use for the coming holiday season

To comment, look below to where all the buttons are for FB, Twitter etc and the comments are the last bit at the bottom right – 60 comments (or whatever the current number is), so sorry its difficult to see….

I just had to share this offer with you. Use code Z099PLAYZXREC at checkout to get one of a whole host of gift ideas for free with only 99 cents postage.

There is a huge list of Artscow products that you can get for free – just pay 99 cents postage and use coupon code Z099PLAYZXRECThe list includes all the makeup bags including the hugely versatile extra large size

Design your own or use one of the hundreds of free templates

Also playing cards

Even the popular ceramic ornaments are included!  I just love these!

Mousemats too….

again, here are the freebie templates

This is the medic alert dogtag I made for hubby who is diabetic

 

You can even take advantage of all the free templates and just drop your own pictures in!

The makeup bags are normally $19.99 including shipping so its a great bargain.  I just ordered one with Nathans pictures on.  We use them for all sorts including storing chargers and adapters for ipods, DS’s cameras and phones etc as well as makeup and cosmetics..

The offer is good until 31st August (but don’t forget its Hong Kong time so its way ahead of US time, order by 30th just to be safe.)

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

New Year, New Software Givaway

Whats your favourite new thing that you want to do this year?

For me, its going to be the year that I achieve my weight loss goal (yes, I know, you are going to hear a lot about this in the next few months!)

 

This lovely page was made by Ann with my New Year New Me Kit

 

But if this is the year that you want to finally do something with all your precious photographs then you are in the right place…….

BEACAUSE  I am GIVING AWAY a copy of  MY MEMORIES SUITE V3  software on 16TH JANUARY.

 

The software is the world’s favourite digital scrapbooking software and its so user friendly and easy to learn that you will be producing masterpieces within days.  It’s really intuitive – no steep learning curve like Photoshop – just download it, open it up and you’re off.

 

Why digiscrap you might ask – and you wouldn’t be the first

  • well, all the cool kids are doing it!
  • theres no mess to clear up
  • you get to use all your supplies time and time again
  • the digiscrap world is full of gorgeous inspiration, oh, and freebies!!!

if you really needed any more reason check out Digiscrappin with Jen for a whole list of reasons!

 

How to Enter:

To be in with a chance of winning you simply have to leave a comment on this blog post.  To double your chances follow my blog and to tripple them like my CatDesignz Facebook Page and post a comment on there about this givaway and you’ll have 3 entries.

Good luck and please tell all your friends who are interested in digi scrapping

 

And talking of givaways here is a freebie to get you started off with your digital supplies.

 Download the freebie here

 

It’s a png file so its suitable to use within any graphics programme not just My memories Suite v3.   And yes, it’s a new format – I mostly scrap in 12 by 12 so this is a diversion for me.  It’s so easy to just drop your photo in though  especially within My Memories Suite.  Have a look at the finished version which took me less than 30 seconds just to add the date and place details

 

 

You will find other freebies here from time to time so its really worth following if you want to start or add to your digital stash.

So, don’t forget to add a comment to this blog post then follow this blog and finally hop over to CatDesignz FB page, like it and add a comment there.  The lucky winner will be announced here on the blog after entries close on 16th January.

By the way, all the pages featured in this post were made with my kits and/or using My Memories Suite v3 software

If you are wanting to add a header to your FB timeline its perfect for doing that…..

or maybe you want to build your own blog header – Celeste from my Creative team did that using one of my kits Purple Heart (though rumour has it she’s about to update it with a little birthday gift I made for her!)  You can see it at Celestes blog Touched by a Butterfly where you can catch up on all her wonderful paper crafting – have a look at her forthcoming blog hop while you are there.

 

 

I just spent the last few days making new kits and wordarts which will all be in store at My Memories soon so I’ll let you know about them as they become available.  In the meantime heres a perfect one for capturing all those new year images, its my Celebration Wordart

 

 

Thats all for today folks, happy scrapping and good luck with the competition

I’m back on line, yay! & Wicked Wednesday Givaway part 4

mmmmm, I may have spoken too soon, every time I try and save a draft of this blog I am being booted out without a save……

The autosave function seems not to be working and the mobile dongle sent me by my ISP  (or non provider in the case of Sky) is really unstable and drops out without any warning – the link that is not the dongle….

So, I’m saving this every sentence to try and get it published but its painfully slow.

Still no sign of the modem that sky were promising to send out last Thursday, that could be because they’ve not sent it of course.  According to my latest contact it will now be ANOTHER 3 – 5 working days before it arrives.  I am not holding my breath

Its enough to make me resort to chocolate, but I won’t ‘cos I’ve now lost a total of 25.5lb and I will absolutely not let Sky’s incompetence knock me off track.

So now I can get on line I can see that my 2 Christmas mini Tags & stickers kits are available in store over at My Memories

Oh heck, every time I try and save a picture or a link the whole post is cleared – looks like I am going to have to go to McDonalds again to post this blog for you…….

 

Web_preview

The kits make perfect centre pieces for seasonal cards and invites or just cute little additions to your Christmas and holiday layouts

You know, I’ve been so upset over this whole internet outage that I could have done with some real cheering  up

Web_preview

so, in the hopes that there is someone out there who could do with a good dose of pre Christmas  cheering up……….. I am going to give you not 1 freebie  but 2 freebies this week.

Both are double page spreads, perfectly matched and you can either use the complete pages or the individual elements.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heres the first one

DOWNLOAD HERE

 

and the second freebie

DOWNLOAD HERE

they make a perfect quick way of doing a fast album if you are on a time limit.

 

Hope you enjoy using them

A just because Freebie….

just because I made 100 fans on my new CatDesignz Face Book page that is – in fact I sailed past it with over 50 new friends in an hour so just had to give out a freebie to celebrate

heres a sweet layout that Nicole made with the kit

thanks for allowing me to share this lovely peek into your family Nicole x
