MyMemories June 2021 Blog Train

Welcome to my stop on the June MyMemories Blog Train! I have chosen Father's Day for my theme this month, which is this coming Sunday (June 20) here in the USA. Like last month's Mother's Day collection, the name of this one also comes from the Bible (surprise!). As I mentioned then, it brings to mind how Paul pointed out that this is the first commandment that comes with a promise. (See Ephesians 6:1-4.) 

You can see the previous post to take a look at the rest of the collection, which has lots of whimsical elements that should be suitable for scrapping not only your tender dad moments, but also general baby and kid pages as well. The whole collection is 25% off, and the bundle is 33% off through June 26.

And now for your purpose in visiting today, the June blog train details!

Click on the preview below to download my gift (by the end of this month).

This layout uses the blog train mini as well as the alpha freebies (from the pack below as well as the  exclusive pack for my newsletter subscribers).

While you're here, you'll also want to grab this free pack of 5 alphas:

AND, today in the MyMemories newsletter, you can get this free coordinating quickpage from yours truly as well! I hope you like it! I know that with today's high resolution cameras, many of us have nice, large photos to display and so this quickpage has space for two small photos and one quite large photo.

And now, here are the rest of the links in the train. Your next stop is Shmooangel Designs.  If you get lost, just go to the My Memories blog here and you'll find your way again in no time!

Honor Your Father & New Pennant Packs

Hello! Thanks for visiting the blog today. 😊 Whether you had a wonderful relationship with your father or not, hopefully we can all agree that fathers are very important. When God designed the family, He put them in charge and gifted them with the qualities they would need for that role. Last month I featured mothers, and this month my collection celebrates fathers. This set again includes quite a bit of whimsy, and so it would also be suitable for scrapping photos of all of the precious little ones in your life. Everything in the collection is 25% off, and again this month, the bundle is 33% off (through June 26). Let's take a look, shall we?



Patterned Papers:

Wood Papers:

Paper Combo (half cardstock, half messy):

Stacked Papers:


As always, Lidia has lent her amazing talent to make these beautiful sample pages - these next layouts use the combo papers and kit (both papers and elements):

This next page also includes a wood paper:

And this last one uses the kit and a stacked paper:

These next four sample pages (made by me) each use a stacked paper with kit elements added:

Using the kit and combo papers:

These next two pages use the kit and combo papers. These both started with free blog templates by Fiddle Dee Dee, but then I modified them quite a bit.

The next two pages use a wood paper, kit elements and papers, and the first one also uses a messy paper.

Just for fun, I also made some packs of pennants to go with various collections. I always love using them, and maybe you do, too? The first pack contains pennants that were already included in former kits, but the second and third packs have brand new pennants. They're all 50% off for a limited time. I also bundled them up together at an additional discount.

And here are some quick & easy sample pages using the new pennants and various parts of the coordinating collections:

These next four pages start with an artsy/stacked paper and also use clusters and wordart, which made them come together really quickly (and it was fun, too!)

And this last sample layout uses an artsy/stacked paper, wordart and parts of the coordinating kit:

Well, that's all the goodies I have to share with you today. Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful rest of your weekend! In case I don't post again before then, I'll take this opportunity to wish a Happy Father's Day to all of the special dads you know and love (next week for those who celebrate it then).

Memorial Weekend Sale!

In honor of the observation of Memorial Day this weekend in the USA, the entire MyMemories shop is 30% off! I'm personally so thankful to all who have served their country, and also grateful that none of my loved ones perished during such times.

This weekend is also special to my family because it's my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. How big is that?! Whatever you're doing this weekend, I hope the weather cooperates and that everything is wonderful for any activities you have planned. Blessings to you and yours!

Honor Your Mother Extra Packs

Hello, ladies! I'm back with some coordinating packs to go with the Honor Your Mother collection, as I hoped would be the case. I just love the soft colors of this palette and the warm theme, so here's what I have to show you today! These packs (along with the original set) are all on sale for 25% off through May 31, with the bundle being 33% off again.


Cluster Frames

Messy Papers

Torn Papers

Wood Papers

Bundle 2

Next, take a look at these stunning pages made by Lidia! For this first layout, she used a combination of items from the whole collection, including the heart from the blog train, a wood paper, cluster frame, cluster and a few other items from the kit/add-on for good measure.

And for this lovely page she used a torn paper, cluster frame, cluster, messy paper and wordart:

Here's a page I made using many parts of the collection, including a wood paper, torn paper, messy paper, cluster, cluster frame, wordart (from the British pack), border (see below) and just a few embellishments from the main kit and add-on.

This next one uses a wood paper, torn paper (peeking out from under the wood paper), two messy papers (one is peeking out from under the torn paper), cluster, and parts of the kit/add-on and blog train mini.

And this page uses three messy papers (two as strips), cardstock, torn paper, cluster frame, free cluster and parts of the kit/add-on.

The following layout uses two messy papers, a torn paper, cluster frame (this is the alternate version of the one shown in the preview, which is also included in that pack), and various parts of the kit/add-on.

Using a wood paper, two messy papers, cluster frame, two clusters and a wordart (from the British pack):

Wood paper, two messy papers, two clusters, cluster frame and wordart (British):

Border, wood paper, two messy papers, wordart, parts of kit/add-on:

Cluster frame (from freebie), torn paper, messy paper and parts of kit/add-on:

Last week my newsletter subscribers received a surprise freebie, and I'll be sending out another one in the next few days. I'll include the first freebie link again for anyone who signed up in the meantime. If you subscribed but haven't received the email, please be sure to check your spam folder. Here are those previews:

Cluster and Cluster Frame (last week)

Borders (this week)

For anyone who misses these or any of the other limited time freebies in this collection, I will be bundling them up for a super low price in June - so no worries! 😏

That's it from me for today. Thank you so much for reading! I hope that your month of May has been lovely so far. We've been enjoying the beautiful flowers in everyone's yards here on our daily walks. It won't be long before vegetable gardens will be sprouting up, will it? Wherever you live, I pray that there is plenty to be thankful for in God's bountiful blessings in your surroundings and in your life.
