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

Its Friday – Fabulous Freebie Friday!

Yes, its already Friday in the UK and I am calling it fabulous Freebie Friday…..but more of that later!

This week I got the images from Nathan’s mini photo shoot with Philip Fearnley of Capture Photography in Sowerby Bridge.

We had been working with Philip on a Bonny Baby competition at work and I took the oportunity to pop Nathan in front of the camera while he was setting up and getting his lighting sorted out.

The pics were rattled off in a very few minutes – no long studio session – just natural and spontaneous
To say I am delighted with the results is an understatement.

My baby is so grown up I can’t believe it.  Aged 11, he’s already taller than me and taking the same size shoes as his  Dad

So of course I had to scrap some of the results and I’ve been showing them off to anyone who will look at them since Monday and now its your turn!!

The electric guitar was his birthday pressie and he was sooo reluctant to take it along but I’m glad I managed to persuade him otherwise

 

Live laugh love

The page was scrapped with my Creme de la Creme Kit and I really love the way it turned out.

 

Nathan is one cool dude!

This page was done with elements of several kits – the zebra mask is from Animal Magic Zebra Masks (unsurprisingly!) and the hint of pink to match his t shirt comes from Pinkadink Simply Embelishments with the wordart created from a style in my ever growing digital designer stash….oh, and the swirls are from Cupcake Heaven – and I deliberately left them a different shade of pink to add a little depth and tone.

Anyway, I’m rattling on about my gorgeous son and what you are really wanting is the freebie!!!

So here it is, its another quickpage for you made by Ann – yes, I did promise more of the same last week!

This one is called Beautiful Dreamer and is made mainly from Celeste kit with the separate Beautiful Dreamer which you can get individually or as part of a combo kit with 5 other matching worarts

downloaded quickpage freebie here

I think you’ll agree its another beauty and a great one to add to your collection.  I started out my own stash with quickpage freebies so I know just how useful they can be when you are in a hurry.

I hope you enjoy using this one – please leave me some love as it’s great to get your comments

Happy Friday and 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

New Year New Me

Well, 2011 is drawing to a close.  So far I’ve managed to lose 31.4 lb of my excess baggage.  Slower progress than I would like but its all going in the right direction.

The last few weeks have been frustrating – first I had the dreaded noro virus which completey threw me off my stride.  Then no time off work due to covering for a colleague and then horror of horrors, my laptop decided to blue screen.

So, no designing, no keeping in touch via FB, no blogging and no internet Christmas shopping!!

I suppose it could have been worse as the crash coincided with a price crash on PC’s and laptops and I was able to get a high spec laptop for a bargain price.  We so cannot afford it right now but then we so can’t afford for me to be without it either….

I toyed briefly with the idea of a mac rather than a pc but just couldn’t come to terms with paying more than double for the same spec.  This is what I settled on….Dell XPS 17 inch Laptop

She, and its definitely a female, arrived just before Christmas and it took best part of 2 days to transfer my file structure and data over.  She is one racy lady – sleek aluminium  cover for starters and a lit keyboard which is such a luxury for me.

Inside is just as impressive – core i7 2nd generation  processor, 8G  Ram, 1TB memory and a 3GB dedicated graphics card.  No name for her yet so suggestions are welcome.

So now she’e earning her keep and I’ve been busy making a couple of new kits – mostly inspired by my weight loss journey and the New Year New Me concept.

I know that lots of people start a health kick in the New Year and documenting things really helps t keep track and motivate – well it does for me any way.

As well as the main kit there are some tongue in cheek wordarts

The Biggest Loser

In the Zone

Ditch the Junk in the Trunk

My smashing design team have come up with some ideas of their own too.  Rachel is making great progress with her own journey – looking good Rachel!

She’s also used it to set her goals – this turned out great – perfect to pin on the fridge door!

Of course the kit is pretty versatile with over 180 individual elements including a full alpha so you can use it for all sorts – not just health & fitness or weight loss projects

Its a minor miracle for me to scrap a page myself but I managed this one for Emily with the My Memories swap crop – such a lovely picture Emily – thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, and I even made my new Facebook Timeline header with the kit – that way I’m reminded every time I log on! (you can see it at the top of this post)

and finally my own target record to help keep me on track

So, heres to a great 2012 – a year for looking after yourself and being the best you that you can be!

Happy New Year!
