Hi there and welcome to another Monday!! You know that means it's the day we feature our great MyMemories Designers! This week we are featuring a newer designer to MyMemories - Catherine of *CatDesignz*. We asked what she'd like to share about herself and this is what she had to say!! So, give her a big welcome and say hi!

Catherine here, aka CatDesignz. I’m lucky enough to live in the beautiful Bronte country of West Yorkshire with my husband, our 10 year old son and our mischievous border collie puppy Rusty – you’ll see their pictures in a lot of my layout samples! I work full time managing a shopping mall and like to scrap and design as a way of unwinding. I have to say, what started out as a hobby has become something of an obsession! You can see a little of what I get up to on my blog My biggest thrill is seeing what people create with my designs – 
I’d love for you to post your creations on my Facebook page!! 

Here's some of Catherine's fun stuff to take a peek at!! CatDesignz MyMemories Shoppe! Leave her a comment and tell her which kit is your favorite and somebody's going to win her WHOLE shoppe!! 
Thanks Cat! Winner selected and posted next Monday!

Meet this week's Featured Designer, *Missy's Bits*

Welcome to this week's Designer Spotlight post! This week we'd like you to meet Melissa of *Missy's Bits*! We are super excited about many of our newer Designer's at and wanted you to get to know a little bit about them!

Here's what Melissa had to say:

 "My husband Matt and I have been married for 10 years. We have a 7 year old son and an 8 month old daughter. We live on Florida's Gulf Coast. Matt and I work together at our family's air conditioning company.  I fell in love with scrapbooking after my son was born. The idea was to create a unique baby book for him. That turned into several books and an entire room dedicated to scrapbooking. I stumbled on digital about 4 years ago when I was editing photos. I wondered if I could make an entire page on my computer. I started searching the web and discovered a whole new world of scrapbooking!! I started designing about a year later, and I love it! I still like to get out the paper supplies every now and then and make a mess, but digital is much easier (and cleaner) to do in my spare time.
 And anyone with a baby knows that spare time is hard to find!!"

Melissa is generously giving away her WHOLE *Missy's Bits Shop* at the Design Shop to one lucky winner this week!  Please be sure and post a comment - maybe tell us which Missy's Bits kit is YOUR favorite!  We'll draw one lucky winner and post next week!  Here are just a few of the designs in her shop, make sure you check them ALL out!!  As a SPECIAL BONUS - Melissa has put her WHOLE *Missy's Bit's* Shop on SALE this week!!  So, get on over there and grab some great goodies!! 

Make sure you check out our VERY busy MyMemories Facebook page for all kinds of fun things and help if you get stuck!  We are making so many new friends and we love getting to know *YOU* too!

Good luck and stayed tuned later today for the WINNER'S from last week's StoryRock giveaway!! Posted soon!

UPDATE:  The Winner's from the StoryRock Designer giveaway have been chosen!  Congratulations to CINDY and KIMMIE!! Please send me an email at and I will give you the information you need to claim your prize!!

Have you wondered what good the GUIDES are in your MyMemories Suite program are? Did you even know there were guides??

So, check out this *Short & Suite* video tutorial (the accompanying printable PDF link is below the video) for some great information on how to use them to make your projects *just right* for printing!

It's WEDNESDAY! That's *Challenge Day* on the MyMemories blog!

This week's challenge might be tough... it's about remembering. Scrapbooking is an amazing way to preserve our family's story - and it's not always happy. While many memories are fun and exciting, there are times that we just need to scrap to work through our feelings and emotions. This week, especially as our country enters a week of many ceremonies and moments that we can all look back and commemorate and remember - let's share those...

... a BIG congratulations to last week's winner! We loved ALL the "All About Me" pages! Thanks so much for posting each one! Meg, please send me an email at to get the information you need to claim your prize! :-)

Have a Wonderful Wednesday... and don't forget to make a memory today!

Look what *YOU* are up to!!

Good morning! It's FRIDAY and another chance to show what YOU have been up with your MyMemories Suite software! So, today - a great project from our own *Suite Chick* Kat! It's fun to remember that whatever you can do with a jpeg file, you can DO with your MMS project pages! In today's feature - Kat used a page she created with Meredith Cardall's awesome kit, "Dress Up" and created a T-Shirt transfer and made this adorable shirt for her precious princess! What do you think?? I think *AWESOME*
...although I think that little face just makes the shirt even cuter, don't you???

So... a BIG thanks to Kat for sharing her project - now... let's see YOURS! Email me if you have a fun project you've created, and you could be our next Friday feature! Email:!
