MyMemories January 2021 Blog Train & Lovely Winter Time Extras & Bundle Sale!

Hello! I'm so glad you made it to my stop on the January MyMemories Blog Train. Here we are half way through the first month of the New Year. I sure hope it's being kind to you and yours so far. I think that if we learned anything from 2020, it could be that we're stronger and more adaptable than we realized! Nevertheless, most of us like familiarity and we enjoy our routines - so going too far outside of those can make us uncomfortable. That's my take on it, anyway! Feel free to chime in with your two cents in the comments. 😊

I've been enjoying this winter quite a bit already, in a cozy indoors sort of way. ;) My newest collection was so much fun to create. I hope you enjoy scrapping with it as much as I enjoyed making it! Here are the previews of some additions to it since my last post.

{Very} Large Clusters (shown at 50% scale)

Small Clusters (shown at 55% scale, so at all tiny like the preview makes them appear)

Journal Scraps


Messy Papers

Wood Papers

Torn Papers

I have also gathered together a bundle of all of the above packs (except for the cardstock, which will be in a later bundle) for convenience and savings. This is excellent timing, as you'll see in a little while below - because I'm having a sale on all bundles for extra savings!

Lidia made these beautiful pages using various parts of the entire collection. On these first two, she used a blending technique where she erased part of one paper so that the one below it could show through and give it an artsy, custom look. Your program may or may not be able to do that, but you can definitely clip photos and other objects to photo masks and shapes in MyMemories Suite Software - so put your thinking cap on and you're sure to find a way to achieve the look you're going for! :) The brush accents that I often make for my collections can also be used to clip papers and photos to, in addition to dressing up pages. Actually, there are a few included in the main kit of the Lovely Winter Time collection instead of there being a separate pack (at least as yet...)

This next layout of Lidia's uses the torn papers, cardstock, small clusters and journal scraps. Don't you love how she layered those up? So clever!

Next up, I made the following pages using parts of most of the collection:

I'd also like to share with you some timely news: All of the bundles in my shop are 50% off! I thought that would be a good way to build up your stash and save money at the same time - am I right? 😉 UPDATE (Jan.19): The bundle sale is over, but I feel bad that it was just too short. Good news: I will be having all of my quickpages on sale from Jan. 24-31, and that will allow more time to find out about the sale in order to take advantage of it. I'll also try to remember to make the bundle sale last longer next time. I know that it's no fun to find out about sales that have already ended, and I apologize.

And finally, here is the mini I made for you this month. I hope you like it! Click on the preview below to download it. I'm sure that you already know that if you don't use the MyMemories Suite software, you can download the zip from the "general" column of your download area and use it in whatever program you like. Also be sure to check out this month's coordinating participation prize for my "I ❤ This" forum challenge. (If you're sure you won't have time to join, it is available for purchase now - but I'd love to have you participate and get it for free!)

You are also invited to visit this post that has links to many other gifts I've specially made for you, my scrapping friends. I appreciate you so much, and would love for you to have anything that you see there and take a liking to. :)

Your next stop after mine will be PrettyJuScraps. If you get lost, just go to the My Memories blog here and you'll find your way again in no time! 

Here is a fabulous page that Lidia made with the blog train mini. I love the sweet winter scene she made and her adorable photos, don't you?!

Before you go on to the next stop, have you tried the easy-to-use, award-winning My Memories Suite software yet? If you'd like to, you can get a free trial. If you do like it, you can save $10 on your purchase by using my code: STMMMS39100 (Update March 2021: You can also get 10% off your print order by using this code! How awesome is that??!!)

I hope you have a wonderful time on your blog train trip today! Be sure to check back next month around this time for February's train!

    1. That's odd, Sandy, I wonder if there was some lag on the sale that was scheduled (100% off) due to time zones. It's free now, and it was set for Jan. 16 to 31. (This post was scheduled for what is midnight Eastern time on the 16th, but the server is in Mountain time.) Thank you for your patience and for letting me know you encountered a problem.
