MyMemories Suite GIVEAWAY and review

Hey everyone.. ugh it seems like forever since I've been able to blog. Life gets crazy sometimes.. no exceptions here! :)

Today I have a giveaway for you guys (gals lol)! Details below...

I have had MyMemories Suite for awhile now.. and I personally love it! It's so fun and easy to use. Very user friendly and simple. It makes digital scrapbooking a breeze! I have used other software before (photoshop since I'm a photographer.. ) and when it comes to digital scrapbooking MyMemories Suite is so much more fast. 

The best part about MyMemories Suite is simply... no mess! Don't feel like spending the time to clean up/ set up but still wanna be crafty.. this is perfect. 

This is not only for scrapbooking.. but you can use this software to make calendars, and even your Christmas cards! In addition to those great things, I also love the variety available. There are so many wonderful kits in the store. MyMemories often has great sales on their kits too. They share ideas and have contests on facebook (with prizes!) ;) Also check out their blog for more inspiration.

Now let me show you a few new layouts I've made with it.. just in a few hours I made all 3 of these layouts.. 

My lil Harmony last Dec.. :) how fast they grow can't believe it!! This will be her 2nd Christmas!

Speaking of growing my lil Jayden is growing like a weed.. she'll be 3 this Jan. This is one of (MANY of) my fav pics of her and her daddy :) Aren't they just adorable!

Here is another layout of Jayden and her daddy at the zoo! The hardest part about this layout was trying to decide which great embellishments I wanted to use.

You may notice that these have all sorts of fonts... another great feature is that you can use any of the fonts on your computer for text or even WordArt.

And here are a few more layouts I've made with MyMemories Suite.. one of which is my FAV!!

Jaydens tiny toes..

one of the MANY ultrasounds of baby Harmony...

And my all time FAVORITE!!! so cute! One of Harmony's maternity pics.. I was trying to go for.. (my guess/hope) Jayden's point of view.. I just love this so much! :)

Funniest thing.. all of these layouts only have one pic.. I don't normally do 1 pic layouts for paper or digital.. I guess these are just pics I wanted to showcase on their own.. there is absolutely no restrictions to how many images you can use with MyMemories Suite.

One last thing.. We leave for a vacation to SoCal on Saturday Dec 1.. (CANT WAIT!) and of course we'll be going to Disneyland since well honestly.. what else is there in Cali?! lol! We won't be back until Dec 13.. so there won't be many (if any) crafty posts during that time.

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!

it's snowing layout

I made this super cute layout using some blue patterned paper for the background. I cut the title and all snow flakes out with my cricut and white card stock. I used Gypsy font, winter woodland, & pooh and friends. I cut all snowflakes in different sizes and stamped some with pks faces. I added stickles to some of the snowflakes and "snowing" I also added snow maker to some of the snowflakes.. it puffs up and looks like snow after heated. I put down 2 different photo mats and added Caribbean blue bakers twine over the mats.

I'm entering this layout into the following challenge:

Grateful Layout

Hey everyone I made this layout using the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge for the tree, Wild Card for the leaves, and Gypsy Wanderings for the title.

I added orange and yellow irock gems around the corners of the page and on one side of each photo mat. The photo mats are orange textured card stock and the background is yellow plaid patterned paper. The tree is cut from brown textured card stock and all the leaves are from red, brown, orange and 2 different yellow patterned papers. 

For the title I cut the shadow in dark orange.. and the main title in orange glitter paper. After I adhered the title to the main page I went around the edges with a gold gel pen.

My Cricut Craft Room scrapbook fri - pumpkins

Today is My Cricut Craft Room Scrapbook Friday and the theme was to make a fall page. Well when I think of fall sure I think of leaves, and rain, and cold (all things I love!), but I also think of the pumpkin patch.. which is one of my favorite things to do in the fall aside from halloween and everything else fall and fun lol.

So for my layout I used a few different carts.. the title is cut from Mini Monsters, the set of 3 pumpkins is from Holiday Cakes, and the bottom corner pumpkin is from Disney Princesses Happily Ever After.

Most of the paper is DCWV fall/halloween stacks. The photo mats are greenish blue card stock. I added a journaling tag from kraft and ripped it up a bit. At the top I cut a strip of different brown from the same paper line and used scalloped scissors, then I added some pen work in gold and white to help make it more visible. 

To check out all other DT projects today please go to My Cricut Craft Room.

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
