We recently celebrated my Aunty Winnie’s 90th Birthday. I made a little slide show as part of the celebrations. Hope you enjoy it!
Well, today has been my birthday….had a lazy kind of day mostly pampering treats from hubby and chilling on line with Facebook friends – really a bit of a luxury as I am usually either working at the day job or designing at home.
So now its time to party with 40% off my whole store until the end of November!
So everything is reduced, even if its already reduced as an introductory offer. There are no hidden catches, no minimum spend – just 40% off right across the board! That even includes all the brand new Sweet Santa range with its introductory prices – you get 40% on top!
Just fill your basket with all of the CatDesignz goodies that you’ve been craving and use code birthday40 at the checkout.
It even includes the brand new Sweet Santa range which is brand new in store and already discounted – you can pick up the bundle which includes all 6 kits for a killer $5.99 when you use the coupon!
or if you prefer to dip in with one of the individual kits there are cute wordarts which are printable up to about 12 x 10 inches for wall art, Christmas Decorations and cards
and the gorgeous large format high resolution printable Dear Santa…..
My favourite is this corner cluster – add a background paper and a family picture and you have a page in a trice!
This is the main kit
and some cute clusters
and some glittery bordered matching papers – really great seasonal colours with a modern twist
and then of course heres some inspiration for you from my talented creative team
Don’t forget to use the coupon code birthday40 at checkout!
Happy saving and happy scrapping
Well, hadn’t planned on launching another large kit so early in the new year but sometimes you just have to go with the flow
So please meet Celeste……
Named after Celeste Lombas who gave me the initial inspiration for the kit. And it just sort of came together over a couple of days right in time for her birthday this week.
Celeste loves butterflies and the colour pink so its packed full of flowers and butterflies. I used goodies that I’ve designed some time ago but saved up for that special kit, not really knowing what I wanted to use them for so putting it together was really quick (well for me anyway!)
The colours are modern and bright with black and grey as a foil for the pink and green but I think the lace and gentle butterflies give it a kind of vintage feel.
In the future my kits will be available on my Facebook page even before they hit the My Memories store!! Over the next few weeks I’ll be unloading my whole product catalogue there including some excusives that you won’t be able to get anywhere else.
Take a look at some of the layouts by my CT, Linda, Celeste, Ann & Rachel they are simply stunning
I only managed to make a single layout with it myself so far as I got a little sidetracked into making add on wordarts and frames and didn’t really get chance to draw breath yet! Also I got caught up in a digital piracy issue when a friend informed me that my images were being shamelesly used as their own by a business on facebook ( but more of that in another post on another day, my gorgeous kits are my priority now rather than some unrepentant thief whose only defense is ‘I don’t know what you mean’ when patently she knew exactly what she was doing!)
the gazebo is available as a standalone mini kit and it makes a perfect whimsical frame don’t you think? This is Nathan waiting for bride Helen to arrive at her wedding to my Brother-in-Law Andy. Cute or what!?!
The Separate floral frames were a little sidetrack too!
Talking of getting sidetracked here are the Celeste wordarts. You can get them as a money saving bundled pack or each one standalone
Now I happened to know that Celeste was planning a blog hop over on Touched by a Butterfly for her birthday so I made her a little matching wordart and she updated her whole blog to match
I hope you have as much fun using these kits as I had designing them.
Thanks to Rachel, Ann, Celeste & Linda for their gorgeous samples – you rock girls.
And of course, Happy Birthday Celeste – thanks for the inspiration and have a wonderful day on your birthday!

My lovely Mum Therese is 80 today
I’ve been busy scrapping a book for her which she’ll see late Thursday but heres a sneaky preview for you courtesy of www.animoto.com – just don’t give the game away if you speak to her!
I made an album for my Dad when he was 80 and thats essentially how I got started with scrapbooking.
Sort of lost my mojo with hubby’s illness so didn’t really know where to start with Mum’s pages – all I can say is thank goodness for templates – a used many gorgeous ones from www.Scrapgirls.com and www.HappytoCreate.com and produced this book in less than 2 weeks
Thats the beauty of templates – you simply can’t beat them for speed.
You can have a look at some of my templates designs here at My Memories – oh, and there is currently 25% off all of my templates
Feedback on Mums album and my templates always welcome! Oh, and don’t forget to scroll down for yesterdays freebie!
