MyMemories Wednesday challenge hosted by Happy Scrap Arts!

I made a free word art mini pack for this challenge.

The rules are simple: go and download the free word art mini in my store here.
It will be free for 1 week so until august 23th.

Then use at least one of the word arts to make a page. You can use both if you like.

This freebie is matching my new collection It's YOUR Birthday, part of the MyMemories blogtrain.
So you can use my part of the blogtrain to make your page.

These are the other parts available in my store

Some pages made by my CT

 Please post your pages here in the forum: 

And don't forget to send your finished pages also to for a chance to win 45% off your next design shop purchase!

Scrappin from A to Z with Kathryn Estry!

Hi!  I'm Kathryn Estry, a designer here at MyMemories, and this is my second round of episodes, From A to Z.  My goal is to give you a new idea with each letter so that you'll never be at a loss as to what to scrap or how to make your pages look amazing. Luckily for me, I have a brilliant Creative Team, and the inspiration layouts I use in this series were made by the talented ladies on my team.

I'm hoping you'll see some things in my A to Z Blog Series that you want to try!  If you do take any of these ideas and run with them, I'd love to see your layouts!  Please post them in the MyMemories forum in this month's A to Z Challenge thread HERE.

Everyone who posts a layout in my challenge thread this month will receive a surprise gift!

W is for ...


Whenever you're at the beach or the pool or just traveling near water, don't miss the opportunity to take photos.  Then of course, it's time to scrap some pages.  Enjoy these samples from my wonderful CT ladies, Kabra, Yvonne, and Lori.

Please post your layouts in my forum challenge, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z! Remember everyone who posts a layout gets you a free gift from me.

Meet feature designer Happy Scrap Arts!

Hi all, my name is Eileen, AKA Happy Scrap Arts. I’m 49 years old and I am married and have 2 kids. I'm designing for almost 10 years now and still love it.

I love to design masks, they are one of my favorite things to create. Using masks on a page can give some great effects, not only by using them on a photo but also with blending techniques, papers etc.
I have some great sets of masks in store so you can try. I also have a free quickpage for you in store on which I applied a mask. You can just paste your photo behind it and see the great effect of a mask on your page. You can find it in my store here.  Find all my masks here


I also have a new collection in store, 12 Months Summer, available in separate packs or as a bundle.

 You can find me on social media here:

Thank you all for reading and have a great day.

Documenting your life with ADB Designs

This is your story.  Do it YOUR way.  I write in my journal and scrap pages inspired by my journal entries. Two of my CT journal directly on their scrapbook pages and don't keep a separate paper journal. Others keep only a paper or computer journal and are waiting to create the scrapbook pages at a later date. There is no wrong way to do this, just pick up pen or mouse and DO IT. You can join me at any time with this series. You can scrap just the questions/prompts that inspire you, or all of them. You can scrap from the current question and go forward, or you can start at question 1 and move through them in order. 

Each post (every other week) I will share the current question/prompt and layouts created by myself, my creative team or scrapbooking friends.  

Note about sharing layouts from Cole:

We would LOVE for you to share YOUR layout's with us! Just create a 600x600 px jpg layout and email it to Cole subject line D.Y.L Layout!   With your permission, I will post it to the MyMemories BLOG DYL Series (right here), Instagram, Pinterest & Twitter.  Along with your layout, please do include the question/prompt number and the name of the My Memories designer(s) and the name of their product(s) you used.  If you would like to post it directly to our MyMemories Facebook wall please click HERE. You can also post your layouts in the MyMemories Forum HERE.

Summer is drawing down ... children and grandchildren will be returning to school in a couple of weeks -- at least here in Nebraska they return to school mid-August.

Before that happens, there are lots of end of summer activities: the county and then the state fair, garden goodies to preserve for the coming months, shopping for school clothes and supplies, and just plain fun in the sun!


What special end of the summer activities do you remember or end-of-summer stories from your parents or grandparents do you recall? 

My brand new Bohemian Style collection (releasing on Monday Aug 7) is a summery mix of blooms and foliage and bits of ephemera for fun. Ready to help you scrap those end of summer activities, past or present.  Here are some layouts from my Creative Team to provide some scrapping inspiration.








Happy Scrapping!
