Today's Daily Designer....Bekah E Designs!


Tell Us A Story....



Hello my name is Bekah. I have been happily married to my teenage sweetheart for nearly 21 years. We live in the Great Northwest with our three beautiful children and four furry little four legged creatures.
I was originally introduced to digital scrap-booking through a Christian mom’s forum in 2007.  I was completely inspired by the beautiful pages they shared and so I did some research on the internet which led me to purchase my very first digital scrap-booking software.
I then joined a few digital scrap-book forums and immediately joined in on as many of the forum challenges as I could. I later started designing my own digital word art and at the end of 2008 was asked to join the design team of a new digital scrap-booking store that would soon be opening.
I have been a digital scrapbook designer for 6 years now and have enjoyed selling my designs at My Memories for nearly 2 years.
Color is my inspiration. Designing is my passion and I am so excited to be able to share my designs with all of you!

Meet Today's Daily Designer.....Word Art World!

Tell Us A Story.....


With so many digital scrapbook designers out there, I thought I'd take a few minutes and let you know a little bit about myself.  I am a SAHM of three beautiful children and the happy wife of a wonderful man, who serves in the military.  I am from Utah, originally, but have lived in Ohio, Japan, Arizona and Texas.  We now call Maryland home and are looking forward to the next couple of years in this part of the country. 

 Before my husband and I decided to start our family, I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Japanese and English education, and then taught Japanese at The Waterford School in Utah.  I treasure that time I had as a teacher, getting to work with the youth and helping them gain a desire to learn the Japanese language.  After three years of teaching, our oldest child was born, and I made the decision to stay home all day, change diapers, pick up Cheerios off the floor, wipe snotty noses, and wear sweats until dinner time because I was too tired from waking up every hour the night before---and I loved every single minute of it!  OK---that's a lie, I admit.  Some days seemed to never end.  But, if I had to do it all over again, I would do it in a heartbeat.  Being home with my kids everyday has been such a huge blessing.  Now that they are all a little bit older, are in school all day, and can pick up their own Cheerios, I have decided that I need to fill my time with something almost as important as being with them.  So, I have decided to further my education and pursue another degree!

I started up school again in the hopes of earning a degree that did not even exist when I first went to college over twenty years ago!  My kids think it is so funny that "back then" the Internet wasn't around like we have it today, I didn't own a computer or a cell phone, and CDs were just starting to become popular.  Times have changed and so have my interests.  I am now studying Web Design and Development and hope to graduate in a few years, and begin a professional career as a freelance Web designer.  But for now, I will continue designing scrapbooking products (when I am not studying or taking care of a family) because I really enjoy creating digital kits and word art---and I hope my designs will be used to help others create lasting memories for many years to come!

Meet Today's Daily Designer....Boop Designs!


Tell Us A Story.....



As you have already guessed, I am a huge Betty Boop fan!  Most people call me Boop!
As a mother of 4 children I have scrapped most of my life. I found digital scrapbooking a little more than eight years ago and decided to start designing and selling my own graphic designs on the Internet. So that is how Boop Designs was born.

Three short years ago I started another line called Boop Printables. I got tired of buying or downloading free crafting printable’s only to find out after designing and/or printing them out they did not fit my projects.  UGH! So started making my own.  I painstakingly measure and test each and every craft printables that I sell BEFORE I put them on the market. This is why so many come to me for their crafting templates.  You can rest assured they will fit!!!

I am always inspired by my customer requests and my best designs come from my customers desires. So please feel free to send me an email at boop@boopdesigns.com any time to request your special designed product.  With the holidays coming up, I have loads of new products coming out. Be sure to watch for them.

Meet Today's Daily Designer....Wink's Art Graphics!

Hi, MM Friends!

My turn to share… here goes!  I love, love, love doing anything artistic.  It’s just in me.  I crammed every art, ceramics, sewing, photography class into my schedule that I could in school, and took some computer and graphic design classes at college and really enjoyed them.

I think my first artistic endeavor was when I was about 3 years old and drew a wonderful colorful “something” with crayon on the wall while standing on the living room sofa.  I’m sure it spread out as far as I could reach.  What a great, unending canvas!!!  When my mother caught me (where was she?!  probably diapering my brother) she simply handed me a wet cloth and told me I was to clean it... all of it… and that “we” don’t draw on the walls.  Those old crayons were definitely not washable.  I remember trying to clean it off more than I remember the drawing.  Too bad.  ;D  Another time I thought I would give the bathmat a sculpting like the beautiful rug I had seen with the flowers and leaves and swirls and curls cut right into it.  Didn’t work.  I got into a lot of trouble for that one!  Good going, Picasso!

I always hope the things I create bring some smiles and fun to those who use them.  I’ve learned so much in the last 8 years or so about digital quality for images, but still feel like there’s so much more to learn.  I’m so grateful to those designers who are willing to share their knowledge and abilities with other designers.  I also really love using other designers’ CU products!  It gives me a chance to add images to my kits that I might not have thought to include.  There are so many talented designers and I am amazed by their abilities.  Quite often I think “I will never be as good as….”  or, “I  will never be able to do that.”  Just keep practicing and doing, I tell myself; you can’t progress if you don’t.  I guess that goes for everything in life.

Happy creating to everyone here at My Memories.  I’m so glad to be here and love hearing from you.  Please feel free to let me know if you have any requests, kit ideas or comments.   

Hugs!!!

Sunday Designer Challenge brought to you by Dillie's Designs

Today's Sunday Designer Challenge! 

Dillie's Designs
Ever since I was a little girl, I always looked to Autumn as my favorite time of year.  It was the beginning of the school year (yeah, I am one of those that loved school), Halloween was just around the corner, and Christmas was coming real soon.  When I married my husband, he too, loved Autumn, but of course for different reasons, he Loves Halloween.  So what we planned on doing this weekend is the beginning of Halloween Decorations coming out...It takes us about two weeks to finish decorating.
Every year the neighbors and us get together and form a theme.  This year's theme is "Pets".  Guess What?  Yep my favorite theme.  We will dress our animals and go Trick or Treat around the neighborhood.  Instead of dishing out candy, we then make a donation and donate the collection to a Charity.  Of course this year all proceeds will benefit the Animal Shelter in our county.
A funny story, a few years ago my husband and I thought it would be great to get little a treasure chest of toys to give  out instead of candy.  Within the treasure chest, there were some Kazoos.  Halloween night came and started giving out the toys.  Pretty soon, we were hearing the Kazoos being played all over the neighborhood.  The older kids came and that is all they wanted was just the kazoos--they also started playing them.  It sure was funny to hear all the kazoos playing at one time.  After that year is when the neighbors and us decided to do a different theme at Halloween.  
I love to design, but my challenge is to making scrap pages.  I have a variety of techniques, but I love to keep it simple.  The below  page is from my New Mini Kit, Halloween Bears.  Page is a double layer background, with realistic shadow, splitting the backgrounds. I love adding stitched borders around my pages, for me it looks like the page is finished.  I keep it simple by adding a photo, and a few elements, of course with realistic shadows.  I then center everything and it's done.  As you can also tell, if I took out the photo, I would have a Quick page.
Don't forget I'm having my 40% store wide sale until 9/15/14.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!!  See you in the store.
