Each photobook template has a minimum of 20 pages.  many of mine have 2 free bonus covers and a number, including the calendars and 40 page books have even more!.  The calendars have 12 photo pages, 12 calendar pages and 2 cover pages.  And the 40 page books have 40 pages of course!

As well as the template you also get the separate elements to keep in your stash and use in the future.  Every way its a winner!

Creme de la Creme


And if you didn’t win I still have something a little special for you – I want to tell you about the free photobook promotion which is ongoing at My Memories

The offer is a free 6 x 6 photobook and you can literally make a complete book in a snap using one of the premade templates that comes free with My Memories Suite Version 3.

Just click on the blue link above and it will take you straight to the photobook page – do read on first though as there are other promo codes for you later on too!

And if you don’t already own the MyMemories Suite v3 Software then

                      STMMMS26788
                          will give you
$10 off the software and $10 in free merchandise
                from MyMemories.com

Alternatively you can use one of the hundreds of other designer templates that you can find in store

Here are some that I prepared earlier as they say!

Promise Wedding & Anniversary Photobook

Promise as originally to be a Wedding photobook but it occurred to me it would also be perfect for an engagement or a special anniversary as all the wordarts are about love rather than specific to a wedding day.

Purple Heart Photobook

Everywhere that you see a grey aperture is the space that your picture drops into in the album

The templates are all fully customisable –  you can move and rearrange the element,resize them or even remove them. Then personalise with your journalling and you’re done!

Some are 20 page, all the ones featured in this post are 22 pages including a front and back cover.

And all of them are on offer with 30% off at $6.99 until close of play Friday

Just Beachy Seaside Photobook

The photobook templates download straight into your My Memories software so they really are uber easy to use.

And, as I said earlier, if you don’t already own the MyMemories Suite v3 Software then

                    THIS COUPON CODE:
                      STMMMS26788
                          will give you
$10 off the software and $10 in free merchandise
                from MyMemories.com

Family Photobook

All these previews show the front cover of the photobook – if you want to see all 22 pages simply click on te picture and it will take you through to the full preview in store.  Of course, another feature of the books is that you can re order the pages so if you prefer a different cover to the one I used simply swap the pages around!

Tropical Patchwork Photobook

Please let me know if you have any special requests for photobook templates and I’ll add them to my list

And have you used your SHOPPING CODE yet??
Use this promo code in the COUPON/PROMO code box at the MyMemories checkout

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

4am and I are the best of friends…

I used to be able to sleep on a washing line until my son was born 10 years ago.

Sad to say, since then I’ve found it more and more difficult to both drop off to sleep and to stay asleep.

Many’s the time I’ve seen in every hour between midnight and 6am then got up at 7am and gone to work.

I’m not one of those people who can stay in bed and hope to drop off again, and the thought of taking sleeping pills really doesn’t appeal.

So I tend to use the time to scrap and design in peace while the rest of the house is quiet.  In fact I do some of my best work when my brain is in neutral and there are no distractions apart from the dawn chorus.

Tonight I’m working on a portfolio for my friend Sarah Gallagher who’s a photographer here in West Yorkshire.  She recently worked an Asian wedding and the pictures are stunning – I’ll link through to the album for you once its done- though that may be a while as its taking an age to upload her high res files so I doubt it will be finished before the weekend!

After that I’ll be working on a special album for my Mum who is 80 years young in October.

 

Thats in between getting my store stocked in My Memories – I’ve loaded 50 products so far so watch out for new ones popping up over the next few days.  My brand new Totally Tropical Collection will be hitting the shelves very shortly

Back to Sarah’s album

 

Happy Scrapping
