Documenting you life with ADB Designs

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.


What routine, ordinary, simple (whatever words you would use to describe non event activities) activities can you scrap about your family?  It is NOT the special events that really define our lives but the ordinary day-to-day activities.  

I am featuring my collection: FAMILY - it is on sale at 75% off and will be retiring to the vault on Oct 1. 





And here are some truly wonderful layouts from my Creative Team.






Thank you for being such good digi friends. 

Enjoy scrapping!

Designer tip by Happy Scrap Art

Using photos in letters

Did you know that you can use photos in letters? It’s a great way to embellish your titles.
Used on the front of your photo book, on a poster or just on your scrapbook layout.
How to do this in My Memories Suite:
Open a new blank image.
Go to word art
Then write the word you want to use. Choose a big font with thick letters, to see the photos better. I used Rockwell extra bold on the example.
Then in the fill menu choose image and click on the white rectangle you see next to change. Then browse to the photo you want to use. Click on choose and your photo will appear in the letters.
If you want a stroke around the letters, click on stroke en enable. Then choose your color and the thickness. You can also add a shadow, bevel etc. Just play around a bit with the settings of the wordart.
If you want different photos in each letter you have to make each letter separately. 


    12 Months Summer, in store here


      My latest kit is called ABC, all about letters and autumn.

Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry!

Hi!  I'm Kathryn Estry, a designer here at MyMemories, and this is my second round of episodes, 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 ...


Events, big and little, are perfect for scrapping.  Capture the excitement in the moment and remember to scrap about them later.  Here are some wonderful pages showing X-citing times by Kathy, Liz, Lori, and Yvonne.

Please post your layouts in my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z! Remember everyone who posts a layout gets you a free gift from me.
