National Scrapbooking Day Sale!

Please excuse me if you saw the post about the 20% off sale through April 30 earlier today, but I have great news to replace it! Instead of that sale, there is now a sitewide 50% off sale through May 3 in its place. What a terrific upgrade, right? (The reason that I had outdated information is because I'm not on Facebook anymore - my apologies.) You can also get 40% off print orders if you use the code CelebrateNSDHave fun shopping if you go!

More Spring Rejoices Packs & Layouts!

Surprise! I loved the colors and theme of this collection so much that I just had to make some more stuff with it. LOL I also have extended the 50% off sale on the whole collection through the end of the month, too. First up in the new additions are these lovely, convenient borders and clusters:

Next here are some quickpages, stacked papers and wordart, plus a money-saving bundle with all three packs.

Here are some layouts made with various combinations of the borders, clusters, wood papers, torn papers and wordart. These went together very quickly and were a lot of fun to make. Please note that for the first page, the wordart color has been modified to match the little girl's socks (which is easy to do in MyMemories Suite).

(The Spring Showers wordart in this next sample is not included in the wordart pack, but if anyone who purchases the wordart pack would like me to make this phrase into a wordart, I would be more than happy to...just let me know in the comments...)

For this next wordart, I modified the shade and also added a white stroke to make it match and stand out.

This next page uses a wood paper, a border, a cluster, and the scatter from the main kit. I usually feel like the scatters and brush work underneath the other elements and photos add some interest and sort of ties it all together, don't you?

This next one uses the one of the wood papers and a cluster, plus the scatter from the add-on. (Again, this title wordart is not in the pack - it was made using a font, stroke, shadow, etc.)

For the following example, I used a wood paper, a cluster, and a gingham ribbon and the scatter from the main kit. This wordart is included in the pack, but I have added a white stroke around it to make it stand out against the wood-look background. If it were against a light-colored cardstock, then that wouldn't be necessary. It's fun to have options, though, isn't it?

One final note: I'm sending out the newsletter with the free alpha in it again today, so if you haven't gotten that be sure to watch for it. I believe that my newsletter system has the capability of sending it out to individuals as new people subscribe, so from now until April 30 I'll try to stay on top of it so that latecomers won't miss out.

And there you have it! I sure hope that all is well with you and yours. I appreciate your visiting my blog so much, and you are all in my prayers. (Our beautiful, caring God knows us and our needs even better than we do ourselves.) Blessings and hugs!

$2 Tuesday & Layouts!

Woohoo! It's $2 Tuesday, and I have something brand new for you in that category today at MyMemories! It's an add-on to Spring Rejoices containing 30 elements and 12 papers.

This $2 deal is good through April 23.

And I promised that I would have more layouts today, so here goes. Let's start with Lidia's gorgeous pages - don't you adore the beautiful clusters she created?

And here are two layouts I made with just the add-on, and a third with the add-on and one wood paper.

And that's all for now, friends! Thank you so much for reading. I hope that your week has started out well and even if not, that the rest of it goes well for you. 💗

Spring Rejoices!

Hello, I'm back to show you my latest collection, Spring Rejoices! Please see the previous post for the April MyMemories Blog Train, which has not only that gift, but some bonus goodies as well. 😀 I explained my choice of the title for this collection in that blog post, too, so I won't repeat it here. I'll just get right to it. Here is what I have so far. (I may add just a few little extras in the next week, and if I do, I'll post those previews on the blog, too.) Everything in this new collection is 50% off through April 23!


Papers only:

Elements only:

Torn papers** (see important note below):

Wood papers** (see important note below):



**You can get either the torn papers or wood papers for free if you participate in my April challenge in the MyMemories forum. (So don't purchase these if you plan to participate, because I will send each participant their download link via private message in the forum.) Also, there is a coordinating messy paper pack in today's MyMemories newsletter. Plus, be sure to sign up for my newsletter if you haven't yet, so that you can get the coordinating alpha. I sent it out once already to those who signed up earlier, and I'll send it out one more time before the end of April.

Here are some absolutely beautiful pages Lidia made with the majority of the collection:

And here are some that I made, too. 

Lidia and I will both have a few more layouts this coming Tuesday, so keep an eye out for that post. Until then, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that your Spring (if you're in the Northern Hemisphere) has been pleasant so far. Thanks for reading!

MyMemories April 2021 Blog Train

Welcome to my stop on the April MyMemories Blog Train! You'll be happy to hear that I have some coordinating gifts for you this month. My blog train mini uses only the colors from the blog train palette, and then I have added in two more colors for the rest of my collection this month. 

I chose the name "Spring Rejoices!" because when God created all of nature, He revealed to us things about His own nature - His beauty, power, complete knowledge, perfect wisdom, faithfulness (for example, new life sprouts up every Spring), and more. The Bible says that all of creation praises God in its own way, and we should do the same ~ especially since we were made in His image, and so we have not only that incredible honor, but also the blessing of being aware of all of these wonderful things that He has done. Since He cares so much for what He made, we know that He cares even more for us, the crown of His creation. The name for this collection comes from the idea that even the flowers we're so happy to see in the Springtime were made to glorify God and to "praise Him" with their beauty. Rejoice!

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

I made this pack of two theme papers and a quickpage for you to enjoy as well! (Sorry, these are now expired, but you can now get them for a very low price in my store.)

Don't forget to check your MyMemories newsletter today, because it contains the link to this coordinating pack of messy papers! I will try to come back after I receive my own copy of the newsletter and post the link where you can read that online--but be sure to subscribe so that you don't miss anything in the future. The signup is towards the top on the left side of the MyMemories site.

AND, if you haven't subscribed to my newsletter (which is different than subscribing to the blog), you will want to do that right away so you can get this free alpha later this month. It was sent out already once on the 5th of this month, but I'll send it out one more time.

Speaking of subscribing to the blog, Google is doing away with the blog subscription portion of their feedburner service. So if you want to keep up to date with each blog post, you would need to either subscribe in your favorite blog reader software or just bookmark the site. I will be sure to include a summary of what has been posted in my newsletters, too, but the newsletters will only be sent probably a couple of times per month.

And now, here are the rest of the links in the train. After my stop, you'll go to Songbird Scraps, which is the last stop.  If you get lost, just go to the My Memories blog here and you'll find your way again in no time!
