Meet this week's Featured Designer, *Saxon Holt* from *A Saxon Creation*

It's time for another featured Designer on the MyMemories blog!  We'd like to introduce you to our friend, Saxon Holt!  She's the creative mind behind *A Saxon Creation* - she's got some super fun stuff in her shop and check below for the GREAT SALE she's sharing this week!  Here's a few fun things that Saxon would like you to know about her!  From Saxon:

It is a honor to be a featured designer here at My Memories, and I am grateful for the chance to tell you all about myself! Professionally, I have been scrapbooking since 1998, and designing since 2003. I started selling digital kits in 2005, and have loved every minute of it. I still scrap for myself every day, and it's my passion. Many people ask me where I get my ideas and how I can continue to design after all of these years. The answer is simple. I design what I personally would love and can use. If I have a kit about Greece, it's because I went to Universal Studios and have pictures of Greek Ruins. I think that creativity must come from everyday life, so some of kits are destined to be not as popular as others, but hopefully, someone besides me will appreciate an eclectic mix of everyday products! 


Personally, I have been married to my husband, Kevin, for almost 14 years now, and am a proud Air Force wife! We have two daughters, Abby who is twelve, and Lucy who is six. We live in New Braunfels, Texas and are recent transplants to this great state. My parents share our home and we truly love being a multi-generational family. We have had the pleasure of living all over the country, and I am looking forward to meeting some of you in person as I travel. If you haven't tried any of my products, and are hesitant, you can always "friend" me on my Facebook Fan Page and download the monthly freebie for a taste of my design style! Happy Scrapping!                             
                                                                                                                                 ~ Saxon

I think that I would choose "Harvest Kitchen"

Arlene said...

This is an incredibly difficult question for me to answer because you are my favourite designer. I have so many of your kits and love them all for different reasons. I'd have to say "Joe Six Pack" for its versatility, but I seriously love Snowy Day and Gloomy Day, oh and Funky Fishtank. Ackk - don't make me choose! Congratulations Saxon!!! ♥

Tamara said...

It's hard to choose just one favorite!
Rawr! Or space race, or the fish tank :)
Actually my favorite I don't think is in the store but I'd love to see it come back, fleshed out with more papers and elements: the Texas minikit you did a while back :). It's my favorite Texas kit and Id love to see it back and bigger :)

What an awesome prize! Rawr is probably my favorite, but it was a hard decision! Love your stuff

Stacey said...

I LOVE all your My Color paper packs! Especially My Color Rips. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win:)

Connie said...

Saxon is one of my favorite designers, so it's hard to pick just one. I'll go with Holiday Kitchen. I think I've used it the most so far. :)

Angieabk said...

LOVING MY MEMORIES! Just recently lost all my digital supply DVD's/CD's in a move. They just disappeared. Am starting over with MM... SO grateful! Thanks!

Stacey said...

My most recent favorite (it always depends on my present projects) is Let Them Eat Cake -- I love the vibrant colors. There's so much that can be done with this kit!

Sharon N. said...

I don't have a favorite kit yet as I have not scrapped my pages. My favorite kit will be the one that induces the most emotion (either happiness or sadness). However, I like elements in the kits such as the "rain" in Gloomy Day and the "wishbone" in Harvest Kitchen Paper Pieces.

Kreatita T said...

I love Let Them Eat Cake... it's great!

Debbie P said...

I love Southwest....thanks for the chance to win!!

Lori said...

Just one favorite ???????????
hmmmmmmmmmmm ... well, this week it is Zoobilee :-)

Nicole Plato said...

Love your Vintage Farm Kit..I just noticed it today, and it would work perfect with some rooster pictures I have!!

Nicole Plato

Lorie said...

Well...I love a lot of Saxon's kits but my favorite would have to be Techno Kid! I love how trendy it is and since I have 3 boys you know I will use it a lot!

Margaret said...

Thanks for all the great offers Saxon! Love your work. My favourites are Victorian Christmas...love the rich purples! Also the sets in My colors...looks like a very versatile set to have. I recently used At The Museum-China to wish my friend a Happy New Year 2012 as she is Chinese and recently moved to take her nursing training. I am going to see if she is okay with me posting it as it has her picture on it.
Cheers!

Michelle said...

My favorite that I have is Funky Fishtank. My favorite that I don't own (yet) would have to be Rawr! Thanks for all the neat kits!

Eve said...

It's very, very difficult to pick just one because Saxon is such an AWESOME designer! I love all of the At the Museum kits, and Harvest Kitchen is fabulous. I also really love Hunting Man and Fishing Man. Thank you so very much for the opportunity to win this fabulous prize.

Monica Tagabuel said...

Rosemary said...

Great give away and I like, Northern Coast. Since I live in AZ this one I could use and dream!

jollybunny said...

Love the my colours sets. They go well with almost anything! Thank you!!

Debbie said...

So many fantastic kits to choose from. My favorite would be Huntin Man. Hubby loved the recipe and I love the colors in the kit. It's so hard to choose from such a wonderful designer!

auntbeffy said...

I like Rawr! because I have two little boys, so we can never have too much dino stuff. I really like the realistic look and the skeletons.

Jo Lee said...

You are one of my favorite designers. I love Space Race, Bryans Bots, Funky Fishtank, Holiday Kitchen and so many more. The vibrant colors as well as the fun elements make scrapping to your kits a true joy!

Binge Crafter said...

I would have to say Rawr is my fav!! I love all the great colors on the papers and who doesn't love a little dinosaur every now and then :)

Hi-36th Ave. sent me! :D Can't wait to find out more about you guys!

Susan D said...

I love Who You. The owls are so cute susand1408(at)googlemail(dot)com

AZ Happy Scrapper said...

Joe Six Pac is like you made it especially for my husband. He's not a big beer drinker but he is a do-it-yourself guy all the way. He handles tools like they were part of him. Anyway, I love this kit. Thanks for the opportunity to win kits from your beautiful collection.

Sam said...

So many to choose from! I will say that 'Rawr' is my top choice, for right now. So fun!! But I love those little 'holiday bugs' as well. Thanks!

Christelle said...

What a SUPER giveaway!! Thank you so much for the chance to win...

There's such a big variety of kits in your store, but I'd have to say that Northern Coast is my favourite...
