Random Reductions day 4 – Honey Bunny Baby Kit 99 cents , 24 hours only

I’ve got a gorgeous baby kit for todays Catz Random Reductions for you

Honey Bunny has long been one of my favourites – the embellishments are super sized so that you can print them out BIG – even apply them as nursery decals or print to cushions and full size wall art.

the elements are finely detailed and have a vintage kind of feel to them

how can you resist this cute little guy?  Especially when he’s only 99 cents!!!   Just for the next 24 hours….you really don’t want to miss this one!

and such a smiley sunshiney face to go with the bunny…..

the kit is just a perfect foil for the Baby Mine Wordarts in the Creme de la Creme series

they make a great combination in baby albums.  Linda just made a gorgeous one to show off her new grandson.  To celebrate his birth, Bunnylove Baby Photobook is on offer at only $5.99 for the next few  days

and while you’re in store at my memories picking up Honey Bunny don’t forget that theres still chance to collect your Christmas in July goodies at 50% off til the end of the month.  All my Christmas kits are reduced through 31st July including the beautiful Night Before Christmas.

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…

Meet Seraphina…..

In keeping with the heavenly theme for my new kits I’d like to introduce you to Seraphina

The kit is named after my cousin Eleanors youngest daughter Seraphina.

Isn’t she beautiful!

Ok well, if I can’t be a teeny bit proud who else will shout her praises?!

She is packed full of purples and aquas – my two favourite colours – can’t believe I never got around to combining them in a kit before…..

Its a bit of an unlikely mix but I think you’ll agree they go together really well.

The kit will be available from My Memories store shortly but for now its exclusively available from my own Facebook Boutique on my CatDesignz page.

The name is that of a type of Angel BTW –

‘Feminine form of the Late Latin name Seraphinus, derived from the biblical word seraphim which was Hebrew in origin and meant “fiery ones”. The seraphim were an order of angels, described by Isaiah in the Bible as having six wings each. This was the name of a 13th-century Italian saint who made clothes for the poor. As an English name, it has never been common.’
 
thanks to Behind the Name
 
 
 
 
And as ever here are the gorgeous layouts that my CatDesignz Creative Team team have put together with Seraphina.  As you’ll see it’s really versatile with everything from the boys boys to Disney Princess featured.
 
 
 
 
 
 
How stunning do these black and white photos of Linda’s look?

and last but not least my own beautiful boy Nathan
 
 
 
 
 
I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you

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!

Happy 80th Birthday Mum

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!
