A Freebie, a random reduction and a sale!

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


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

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

Dream, Hope Pray and a Quickpage Freebie

I don’t really know where this layout came from – it just kind of popped into my head but I like the way it turned out – what do you think?  I made it with the Creme de la Creme Pastels Kit

Creme de la Creme was originally in the pipeline as a wedding kit – think I mentioned that in my last post.  As the kit came together I realised that the colour were a distraction from the monochrome beauty of the kit and I put them to one side.

They actually became a mini kit in themselves which is how Creme de la Creme Pastels was born.

As well as a dozen pastel papers there are 10 wordarts to match the original kit and some golden embellishments to pull everything together.

Of course all the elements complement their parent kit perfectly as you can see in the layouts using both kits.

But where’s the freebie I here you ask??!

well, I saved the best for last………

Here it is – it’s a gorgeous quick page made for you by Ann – please hop over to her blog and leave her some love!

I think you could use this page for just about any occasion – all the paper strips are simply perfect for your journalling.

Thanks for this gorgeous page Ann x

Enjoy your freebie

Happy Scrapping
