$2 Tuesday Deal!

Hey there, everyone! I have some exciting news today! I'm participating in $2 Tuesday at MyMemories this week with my For Love of Country collection. And the best part is that not only is the kit only $2 through July 6, but the coordinating packs are only $1 each! That includes the new packs that I've made specially for this occasion, but does not include the Add-On packs. The Add-On is actually free with any $20 design shop purchase at MyMemories (mix and match from any of the designers) this week.

**ALSO please see my note at the bottom of this post if you happened to have purchased any of these items in June at full price before the sale. (This also applies to purchases made at up to 50% off within a few days of, or even earlier in the day of this special sale event beginning.)

Please note that although this collection contains some specifically American-themed elements and papers, I have included alternate color schemes on most of them so that the vast majority of it will be useful to anyone (and even more so if your country's flag colors include red, white and blue). There's plenty to use for picnics, baseball, general childhood and everyday layouts. 😊

Plus, I made these BRAND NEW coordinating packs that are included in the $1 extra pack sale!

In case anyone missed any of these former limited time freebies, the whole pack is set to FREE through July 6 as well. You get two wordarts, one quickpage, one paper and one layered stacked paper. I just realized (VERY belatedly) that a line was left out of the nursery rhyme on the moon/stars wordart, so that has been fixed now. If you want to re-download the whole set, by all means do! (If you have already gotten the set from the store, then it will allow you to re-download it from your account without "re-purchasing" it in order to get the repaired wordart file. I hope that makes sense!)

And finally, you can get the Add-On (including elements, papers and 2 alphas) FREE with any $20 purchase in the MyMemories design shop this week (through July 4).

Add-On Kit:

Add-On Elements:

Add-On Papers:

Add-On Alphas:

Here are a bunch of brand new pages made with the newer parts of this collection, starting with these two patriotic layouts made by Lidia (even though she resides in our friendly neighbor to the north, which is Canada - isn't she the best?!) She used a cluster frame with additional elements from the kit/add-on and some wood papers for this one:

And the add-on papers and elements for this one:

Wordart, cardstock, cluster and kit papers & ribbon:

This next one uses a wood paper, cluster frame and cardstock:

**If you happened to have purchased any of the above sale items in June at full price before the sale began, I would like to offer you something to make up for your missing out on this BIG sale. I am unable to offer refunds or coupons, but I could send you the direct download link to something from my store of comparable value to the discount that you would have gotten. If this situation applies to you, please leave me a comment below with your email address so that I can contact you directly. (This offer also applies to purchases made at up to 50% off within a few days of, or even earlier in the day of this special sale event beginning.)

One last heads up. If you're signed up for my newsletter, the second alpha set freebie expires on June 30, so if you haven't gotten it yet, please be sure to do that soon. It seems as though many of my newsletters might be going into the spam folder, because only about 1/4 of the subscribers have clicked on the link. There was a little glitch from June 26 to June 28 where the $0 price reverted to $2.49 by accident, but that has been repaired. So if that problem affected you, please try again. So sorry about that!

So that's it for today. As always, thanks for reading, and have a great rest of your week! Stay FREE!

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).
