Creme de la Creme – such a versatile Digital Scrapbooking kit

After all the vivid colours of Celeste and Seraphina my latest kit is a celebration of all things calm and subtle.

I wanted to see just what was possible using only one colour and the result is a tone on tone Mega kit in rich shades of vanilla and cream

Hence the name, Creme de la Creme.

To be honest it started out as a wedding kit but  quickly realised that it was perfect for just about any occasion from new babies to heritage and vintage layouts

The subtle cream shades work with just about any colour picture and that means that the picture is the feature.

There are a whole bunch of wordarts included too – simple 1 word versions to use alone or combine in phrases

I’m feeling particularly smug about how it looks with black and white or sepia pictures as I know this will appeal to all those of you who are tracing and recording your family history.

My creative team have really excelled themselves and their layouts are truly beautiful.  Did I ever tell you it makes my hear sing to see my kit used with real photos and marking special events?  Well if I didn’t I should have…..

 

 

 

 

And if the budget is a little tight at this time of year here are a couple of options for you.  Firstly my kits are all cheaper if you buy them direct from me in my Facebook Boutique.

Alternatively you can enter my latest Facebook competition and win yourself a copy!

This week there will be 3 lucky winners who can each chose their own prize – to enter just tell me which kit you’d like to win and post it on your own FB page – simples.  There are other bonus entries available too and you can even up your chances by entering each day.

Hope I’ve been able to inspire you to create a page or two this weekend

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.

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.

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
