Meet this week's Featured Designer ~ *By Christin*



This week, meet our Featured Designer, *By Christin*!! She was formerly designing under the name "Lovely Creations" so you are probably already familiar with her outstanding design work! We are excited to have her as part of the MyMemories Family of amazing designers! Here's what she'd like you to know about her: 

  Hi, I’m Christin and I’ve been graphic designing since October of 2008. I started out by creating word art and frame clusters by request on myspace.com. I use to own the myspace account This Amazing Life Designs, then changed the name to Lovely Creations. Once life got really busy for me I started to slowly drift away from the “myspace” graphics to focus more on planning my wedding. In May of 2009, I married my long time boyfriend. The next day we had a two day drive to our new home. Once we got everything setup, I started to search, on the internet, for the nearest craft store so, I can buy some scrapping items to scrap my wedding photos. Then I stumbled on digital scrapbook. I scrapped a few pages of my wedding and fell in love with it. April of 2010 we had our first baby boy. Of course I had tons and tons of digital photos that I wanted to scrap. So, I looked into the designing part of digital scrapping. I loved creating my own kits and I wanted to share what I created with everyone else. I started selling my kits in April of 2011 and every time I would create a kit I would learn something new. I get most of my inspiration by the little things in life. I see color palettes in just about everything I look at. I create what I love and I hope others will enjoy my kits as well. It gives me a great pleasure to see my items being used on pages and other projects that people have created. I’m blessed to be doing something I love and enjoy doing everyday.

Christin will be featuring her WHOLE shop on sale 40% off this week, so make sure you get on over to her *By Christin* Shop at MyMemories.com and pick up some great goodies!  Also be sure to check out the *By Christin Facebook page* and her *By Christin Blog* !! The designer's often have special promos on their own blogs and FB pages, so make sure you check those out! 

And, the best part... she's also doing a GREAT giveaway this week!  She's giving away: 
  • a $5 give way to 2 lucky winners
  • a $10 give away to  1 lucky winner
  • a $20 give away to 1 lucky winner
So make sure YOU don't miss out!  Just comment below and tell us what's YOUR favorite kit from her shop??  Winner will be chosen at random and posted next Monday!
