Meet this week's Featured Designer! It's Barb from *Albums to Remember*


Good morning and *Happy Monday*!! We are excited to show off one of our favorite Designers here at MyMemories.com!! It's Barb from *Albums to Remember*!!  Barb always has a way of creating just that perfect thing for the next project you're working on.  Be sure to check out ALL the awesome designs she has in her Albums to Remember shop at MyMemories.com!  Here are some fun things she'd like you to know about her:

My name is Barb and I sell my designs under the name Albums to Remember. I started my design career in 2009 as a hobby but turned it into a full time job over a year ago. I enjoy the flexibility of being able to work from home.

My design style has changed a little over the past the couple of years but for the most part I like the look of paper scrapbooking so my elements will often mimic what you would find if you were paper scrapbooking.I have a daughter and a son so I usually try to make my kits work for both genders. There are a few girl only kits in the store but for the most part you can make many of my kits work for boys or girls. I also try to add enough elements and papers so you can create generic pages out of my themed kit.
I often use My Memories Suite software to create my albums and don't have a lot of time so I decided to create a product called Page Builders or Barb's Builders to make the process go faster. Builders are pages set up with all the shapes and photo boxes ready for you to add the papers and photos of your choice. No need to spend time figuring out how to layout your page, the building is all done for you. It makes the process so much faster. If you would like to try a Page Builder for free I have this freebie in the store: http://www.mymemories.com/store/display_product_page?id=ARBP-LT-1112-10177
I have also teamed up with a fabulous layout artist by the name of AK Designs. I am busy recreating her amazing layouts into Builders and templates for the My Memories store. If you like pages with a lot of layers and some clusters check these out. Remember with the Builders and Templates you can always change your papers and embellishments for a whole new look. This week you can pick up a free AK Template sampler! Grab it now before it goes back to full price.

I love, love Albums to Remember kits. I practically have majority of Barb's kits. She usually have the theme that I need to put my photobooks together. Love her builders collections. Keep up the great creations of scrapbooking kits!

While Looking through your designs on My Memories I have added some kits to "My wish list"! Very fun designs. I have to say that the Little Baby girl kit and All in a day pink bliss really caught my eye. I have 3 daughters and since my family is young I have not scrapbooked ANY of their baby pictures. So this kit would be great. Then my oldest LOVE's pink and so DO I. So the Pink kits always grab my attention. I have to say I am very interested in the Chore Chart kit. I had seen a idea for a chore chart and the items in that kit would compliment my idea perfectly. Thank for the Page Builder and Template freebies. I have been curious about them but nervous to buy something I don't know what to do with. Great designs!

Leaf Roberts said...

Oh my! How to pick favorites! I can't decide between the Jungle Safari kit (to scrap our zoo trip with the grandchildren) or the Firefighter kit ( to scrap the kindergarten visit to the firehouse.) Choices, choices. All of them are wonderful.

Barb... you know I'm a big fan. Your stuff is fun to use ... I enjoy using your kits and your Page Builders. I really is hard to pick just one. I've always loved This N That but just bought Mexican Fiesta and it may be my new fave. I'd be thrilled to win something from you. I hope Mr. Random is kind, haha. Congrats on being in the spotlight this week. WooHoo!

Cheryl Greenleaf said...

Moments is just my style!

Barb said...

I like the Jungle Safari which would be perfect for our trip to the San Diego zoo last year!

Kerri Clarke said...

You have so many great kits! I love that you created such a great rock climbing kit. I've bought many of your kits and will continue. I also love the idea of the layout templates! Perfect for those days where creativity is lacking!
Thanks for the opportunity.
