My Memories Sept. 2020 Blogtrain

Well, what do you know? Another first for me - my very first My Memories Blog Train! Woohoo! Just think of all the great goodies you can get along the way from now until the end of the month! But before I forget, I want to show you what I made to go with this month's color palette and my chosen theme. It's on sale, so grab it today if you like it! (You can click on the previews below to go to my store.) Here is what the whole kit looks like:

Just the elements:

Only the papers:

Look at these adorable pages made by Lidia!

And I made a couple pages, too.

This second one includes one of the wordarts I made to go with this collection.

And I had so much fun making the extras! First, the wordart. These come with the plain backgrounds as well as an extra version of the separate wordart styled and colored. 

Stacked papers - these come with combined or two separate layers to give you more flexibility:


And finally (at least for now, LOL), the extra papers. My whole store is still on sale through today, so hurry if you want to grab anything at 50% off! When that ends, this collection will still be 40% off for a limited time, so don't worry if you really like it and you miss my Grand Opening sale.

Now for your main reason for your visit here today - you can get my contribution by clicking on the preview below. The link will take you to the My Memories store where you can add it to your cart for free. Remember, if you don't happen to use the My Memories Suite software, that's okay! There is a "general zip" download in the last column so that you can use whatever program you like, the same as usual. However, if you would like to try to software free (and get $10 off your purchase if you like it), there is a link below.

More Layouts

 I have just a few more layouts to share with you today. These first pages were made by me with the Let There Be: Peace and Joy collections. 

And this next page was made by Lidia with the FREE collection, Shine Your Light:

Remember, you can get a total of TEN assorted freebies in my store at MyMemories, and everything else I have available there is 50% off through September 16! Thanks for looking!

For Love of Country Layouts

I'm back with some wonderful pages made by Lidia with the For Love of Country collection, and also a couple that I made myself. First Lidia's lovely layouts (say that three times fast!):

And here are mine:

Don't forget - my whole MyMemories store is 50% off through September 16! Thanks for looking!

Grand Opening Sale & Collection: For Love of Country

More Big News!! I'm the featured designer at My Memories this week - how about that?! You know what that means. Sale time. BIG sale time. How about 50% off my whole store?! And there is a blog feature where you can get to know me a little better if you'd like, here.

I'd also like to show you another digital scrapbook collection that I have available at My Memories. I started making this one back in June, but didn't manage to get the whole thing completely finished and uploaded in the store until just this week. It's perfect for your summer picnic and other friends and family get-together photos. Here are the previews:

It has 72 elements, 12 patterned papers and two alphas. Here are separate previews for each of those:

And I also made this add-on with another 50 elements, 18 papers (half patterned and half solid textured) and two more alphas.

But that's not all! Also available is this set of 12 cardstock (solid textured papers) and a set of four quickpages.

And you can get it ALL in a very discounted bundle!

Remember, you can use any kits you download at My Memories without using the My Memories Suite software if you prefer. Just choose the option in the last column called "general zip." And also don't forget, my whole store is 50% off during my Grand Opening sale from September 9 through the 15th. Have fun if you go shopping, and thanks for reading!

Layouts, Layouts, Layouts!

I've been so busy designing that I forgot to post the wonderful layouts that Lidia (my CT) made with the Let There Be: Peace and Joy collections. Besides being a wonderful person, she's an amazing scrapper as well! I'm so blessed to have her share her talents with me - I think you'll agree!

See what I mean? That last page was made using one of my templates. I made it for the August 2020 Love for Layout Templates blog train, but you can still get it free. Just go back to the July 31 post on this blog. The next template blog train will be late at night (at least here it will be late) on September 30, so stay tuned for that!

Gifts for You

Hi there! You found the gift section of my blog - yay you! 😊 I'll keep this blog post updated with my currently available freebies so that you won't have to worry about missing anything. ❤ If you're not sure if you have any of these already or not, just click on the linked preview and add it to your MyMemories cart (while logged in). The system will tell you if you've already "purchased" it before. Handy, huh?!

I have linked the preview images to the freebie locations in the store, and they are set to pop up in a new tab so that you don't need to worry about losing your place on this page. If that doesn't work, there may be a right-click option or some other way to open them in a new tab. (I'm a freebie collector, too, so I know how frustrating it can be to have to go back and forth. LOL) Be sure to bookmark this page so that you can find it easily when you remember to check for new goodies!

This cluster frame was not previously in the store, so you would have had to import it into the MyMemories software manually in order to use it. If you would like the program to store it for you where it belongs, then "purchase" it (for free) and download the .exe for your version (mac or pc).

(Ditto for this next cluster as for the cluster frame above.)

This next quickpage was a former challenge participation prize, but I have improved it by clipping a few leaves that were in the way of seeing the photos and making a few other tweaks. Plus, I added a cluster to the pack. So in other words, this freebie is basically new to everyone. ;) (The cluster is shown to scale, but the QP is shown at reduced size to make room for the cluster.)

Please be sure to check out my monthly post for the MyMemories blog train as well. Because those are limited time freebies good only until the end of each month, they will not be added here.


Free Templates (not for use in MyMemories Suite software):

This January was the 4th anniversary of the A Love for the Layout Template Blog and Facebook train, so we made little minis to go with our templates this time.

My current ALFLT blog train template:

If you've made it this far, you're caught up! Congratulations!! I'll be putting new gifts at the bottom of the list (still keeping the store freebies above the little flower separator above and the templates after it). 

I'm so glad that we're doing this fun and rewarding hobby together. 😊 Please feel free to leave me a comment with a link to your gallery so that I can see anything you'd like to share with me that you created with my products (free or otherwise). You can also get in touch with me on Facebook or Pinterest (links in the sidebar). I'd love to hear from you! ❤
