Month by Month Blog Series with Albums to Remember

August 2016

Back to School - teachers and students are going back to school. Take some photos of school shopping, first day, classroom.

Kit is School

Holidays - what did you do that was special in August

Kit is Outdoor Play

Kit is Tropical Cruise - this kit can be used for beach photos too.

Weekend Activities - what do you like to do on the weekend? Read, have friends over for a BBQ, bake, show us what you do with your free time.

Kit is Sweet Summer - berry picking, gardening, hanging out in your yard.....

September Ideas:

Ice Cream - our family enjoys going for ice cream on a nice September evening. How about yours? Take some photos of yourself or your family enjoying a delicious treat.

Appointments - fall is when we usually go for all our check-ups. Dentist, optometrist, doctor, etc. Got to get all those appointments in before school starts! Take some photos of your appointments. If you don’t want to take photos in the office how about outside and journal about where is it, how long of a drive, how long have you been seeing this doctor. It may be neat for future generations to look back and see how we used to do things.

Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry!

Hi!  I'm Kathryn Estry, a designer here at MyMemories, and I'm back with another episode of From A to Z.  My goal is to give you a new idea with each letter so that you'll never be at a loss as to what to scrap or how to make your pages look amazing. Luckily for me, I have a brilliant Creative Team, and the inspiration layouts I use in this series were made by the talented ladies on my team. 

I'm hoping you'll see some things in my A to Z Blog Series that you want to try!  If you do take any of these ideas and run with them, I'd love to see your layouts!  Please post them in the MyMemories forum in this month's A to Z Challenge thread HERE. Everyone who posts a layout in my challenge thread this month will receive a surprise gift!

X is for ...

X-tra Sweet

As I'm drawing this series to a close, I come to X.  I don't have any collections that start with X, and I don't have a hint for you this time.  I'm going to show you some layouts that I think are X-try Sweet.  I think you'll agree!

Meet Feature Designer Sunshine Inspired Designs!

I'm originally from Poland, I came to the US in 2009. I came on a student exchange visa and worked as an au-pair in San Diego. During that time I met my husband. Currently, my family includes, my husband and I, and our rescue pup. We are living in LA, CA area now. In addition to designing and being an artist, I love pet sitting and pet photography. I work with different rescues and I’m learning the art of creativity to expand my horizons and inspire others to find their creative selves.
I started playing with digital scrapbooking in 2013 when my husband and I started traveling indefinitely and I fell in love with digital scrapbooking so much that I started designing for myself and with time I just wanted to share my creations and that is how Sunshine Inspired Designs came to life. Recently I discovered amazing apps that work with my tablet and can improve my designs. Few of my favorite apps: Adobe Sketch and Draw, and Procreate and I really like iFont Maker as well.

Documenting Your Life with ADB Designs...Question 28

This is your story.  Do it YOUR way.  I write in my journal and scrap pages inspired by my journal entries. Two of my CT journal directly on their scrapbook pages and don't keep a separate paper journal. Others keep only a paper or computer journal and are waiting to create the scrapbook pages at a later date. There is no wrong way to do this, just pick up pen or mouse and DO IT. You can join me at any time with this series. You can scrap just the questions/prompts that inspire you, or all of them. You can scrap from the current question and go forward, or you can start at question 1 and move through them in order. 

Each post (every other week) I will share the current question/prompt and layouts created by myself, my creative team or scrapbooking friends.  

Note about sharing layouts from Cole:

We would LOVE for you to share YOUR layout's with us! Just create a 600x600 px jpg layout and email it to Cole subject line D.Y.L Layout!   With your permission, I will post it to the MyMemories BLOG DYL Series (right here), Instagram, Pinterest & Twitter.  Along with your layout, please do include the question/prompt number and the name of the My Memories designer(s) and the name of their product(s) you used.  If you would like to post it directly to our MyMemories Facebook wall please click HERE. You can also post your layouts in the MyMemories Forum HERE.

Question #28
more young love …

What kinds of things did you and your friends do on dates? Did you attend dances and proms? With whom? Write about them.

Today I want to show off my new collection: Wanderlust, A Journey Through My Library. The palette is all my favorite colors and I LOVE to read (always have). I do have an extensive library and those books have provided journeys too numerous to count, but every one of them has been a special treat. 

Here is the link to Wanderlust The bundle is on sale for 60% off through Aug 12.
