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

  • theres no mess to clear up
  • you get to use all your supplies time and time again

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

Yay, I lost 3.4lb this week!!!

Ok, so I didn’t really do anything much different this week.  I’d been jogging along losing 2lb a week or therabouts since starting my weight loss journey.  Then, out of the blue the scales showed this comparatively massive loss on Saturday.

Still burning the midnight oil getting my store populated at My Memories, still working full time, still supporting hubby with his doctors appointments.   Still carefully watching everything that I eat and keeping within my calorie allowance. 

The only thing I did any different is I started taking a CoQ10 supplement in a high dose 2 weeks ago.  Its supposed to increase the efficiency of the cells engines or mitochondria and thus help burn fat.  I don’t know whether thats what has made the difference but what the heck, who cares?  3.4 lb is 3.4 lb and I’m no longer toting it around.

My total to date is 17.4lb in 9 weeks so I’m feeling smug.  While its hardly the biggest loser it is going in the right direction.

Hubby is coming up with different low cal meals for me each evening – last nights offering had flags of spinach speared in a cherry tomato as garnish for seasoned lemon sole, pineapple, peppers stuffed with couscous and cucumber with spicy relish – it was really delicious and made me smile too – thanks for being so considerate Vince xxx

Here are some of the Kits and templates I made over the weekend – they’ll be in store over at My Memories in the next few days.

This is my new Dove Kit

and a couple of ‘Firsts’

Nathans First Day at School

and Nathan’s First Bike 

Don’t forget there is still time to win a copy of the My Memories Suite V2 software.  Just leave a comment on my blog post here and I’ll be chosing the winner at random on October 1st.

You can increase your chances of winning the My Memories Suite Software by liking my Facebook page and by leaving a comment on one of my pictures  in my Facebook Photo Gallery.  Good luck!

let me know what you think of the new kit……

Happy scrapping
