Meet this week's Featured Designer, Barbara Ryan!!


Meet this week's Featured Designer, Barbara Ryan! Barbara has been with MyMemories for quite a while and her kits are among some of my personal favorites! We love all of our Designers, and we are especially fond of our long-time friends! We asked Barbara to share some things about herself and here's what she had to share:

I live in the Albany NY area, but am originally Canadian, from Montreal. I started in the digital world with designing photo collage after my first son was born and I had too many photos to possibly display all the ones I loved. That turned into a business after doing it for awhile for friends and family. Naturally, when I started creating photo books later on, I wanted to dress them up a bit more than what was available on the photo book sites and started looking around and discovered digital scrapbooking. I got heavily involved right away joining a few Creative Teams and having a blast! I then tried my hand at designing and have been doing it ever since.  
  
Take a peek at some of Barbara's AMAZING stuff in her MyMemories.com Design Shop!  She'd love to share a $100.00 shopping spree in her shop with one lucky winner!  So, please check out her store at MyMemories.com and pick out a few things you might like to have and it might just be your lucky day!  Winner will be posted next Monday!

$20.00 Shopping Spree Winner:  "Aremus" from San Antonio

Checked out Barb Ryan's designs, love her Urban Edge papers, Bliss Quick pages and the Project 365 pages.

Kimmie said...

Congratulations Ladies! Enjoy your new kits!

It is nice getting to know you Barbara. I truly love your Tuscan Sun. The colors are so relaxing!

Erin said...

I LOVE how many "boy" kits Barb has! Since I have 5 boys, I am always looking for more masculine kits! I've added all of them to my wishlist, lol!

Cindy said...

beautiful kits here...I love the "Just Beachy"

The Litrenta Family said...

I like her Egg Hunt kit and the New Baby Boy & New Baby Girl designs! Cute!

Bee Bee said...

My absolute favorite kit right now is Twilight; I have been using pieces of it all over the place. Guess who the designer is??? :-)

Dandelion Gatherer said...

LOVE Barbara Ryan! Magic Treehouse, Urban Meadow packs, envy, and all the masculine ones since I have 3 boys!

Fenwick Family said...

I love the vintage papers and the urban edge papers!

The Fullers said...

Now that is very hard to pick the ones I want because if it were up to me I would have to pick all of them. I am new to this digital scrapbooking world but I have totally fallen in love. But if I were to buy a couple now it would be the high five and bejeweled

Michelle said...

I like it all...especially the Urban Papers!

DebbieG said...

I would have to say that my absolute favorite is With This Ring Pack. Than again Happy skies and After the Rain are great as well. They are all so good it is hard to pick.

Congrats Aremus and Margaret C

April B. said...

Her masks are really great. Would love to own a few of them!

Jocelyn T. said...

Hi Barbara, I love your templates. Especially the ones with beach and water themes, like Sandcastles and Just Beachy. They've got just the right feel for capturing those days at the beach on or on a beach-related vacation!

Stacey said...

You have lovely stuff! My fav's being your photo masks:) Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Deborah said...

I like Urban edge and Mother's Love

Scrappin' Lori said...

I think it's great that you have extra things, like masks, borders, and overlays.

stampgram said...

I love the designs...In Love, Artsy Papers, Urban Edge Papers, Twilight are some of my faves.

Dana J. said...

Love the Artsy paper pack. It 's so rich. Also in love with the Twilight template so wonderfully gothic. Love to own the rest.

JoyfullyOrange In Heaven said...

Congrats Aremus and Margaret!
I'm glad Barbara is featured and I got to look at all the lovely designs and colors (loads of my favorite Orange!). Tuscan Sun, Autumn Haze, Naatural Woman, Sweater Weather and Picture It are at the top of my list. Wish I had the time to look at every single one but I couldn't do it just now. I sure could do a lot with a big coupon! I really need kits to start scrapping with. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Many Blessings, Deborah/JoyfullyOrange

JillBari said...

Barbara Ryan's 'With This Ring' immediately caught my eye as I'm preparing to create an album for my son's wedding that was on 9/10/11 @12...lol. Tuscan Sun is also one of my favs; it's pretty hard to choose. There are so many nice ones.

Barbara's Mother's Love is just right for my scrapbooking at the moment and many other of her products would be very helpful. This is a very generous giveaway and would afford some tremendous help too. Thank-you.

NanaKay13 said...

Aremus and Margaret are SOOOO lucky! Congrats!
Barbara has so many great designs. Obviously she's a very creative lady. While I see my own pics in each of them,I am most drawn to Urban Meadows sets and the Vintage Victorian Papers (I am very involved with my family history).
Blessings to all, Kay

I love the Tuscan Sun pack and the Artsy paper pack. Those are my favorite kind of colors

Laura said...

The Artsy Sky is my favorite - modern, yet fun.

I think I could get everything since I just started and it is all way fun but I really love the monkey business and the with this ring pack.

Holly said...

I really like her the After the Rain kit.

Denise said...

I absolutely love the Magical Events pack. Its perfect for a Disney album.

Evergreen Grrrl said...

I enjoy the Artsy Paper Pack and the Urban Edge papers and packs. Those easily compliment my personality as well as scrapbooks on which I am already working. They would mix wonderfully with several other packs as well. Thank you for offering up this prize.

*Mrs. Kelley* said...

Wow I love these designs!!! I will be adding some to my wish list for sure! I'm in love with Just Beachy- I'm wrapping up pictures from this summer and that kit would be perfect!

Rene Vaughan said...

I love all of your kits but especially the Halloween kit. Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine. My birthday also!! hehe
Thanks for the chance of winning!

Sherry H. said...

Wow, it's so hard to choose. I love Barbara's kits because there is such variety among them and they are all beautiful. However, if I had to pick just one I'd pick "Dreams Do Come True." I love all things Disney & that is just what this kit reminds me of-lots of wonderful, magical memories.

auntbeffy said...

I already had to have Urban Boyz and Magic Treehouse, but I also like Graffiti to go with them (love that hardware style) and the French Country Masks.

Janet said...

I have a bunch of your kits. I used your magical events pack for my son's first birthday. It just makes me smile everytime I look at it. Keep them coming!

skinni said...

I love Pinks, so I am partial to the "With This Ring" & "Mother's Love"
Good Luck to all.
