Documenting your life with ADB Designs

Poodles skirts & Elvis! The 1950s & 1960s were a time of excitement and postwar boom.  Baby boom, rock-n-roll, space race, cold war (it was chilly!), Cuban Missile Crisis, "Camelot" in Washington, and more...

My newest collection, just released today is a celebration of those times. Called American Bandstand, it is a wonderful heritage collection but it is NOT limited to photos from that era. put on those old 45s and scrap, scrap, scrap.


What do you know of the 1950s and 60s? Did you live during those times or did a parent or grandparent? What were your favorite things from that time? (movies, songs, bands, foods, clothing styles, etc)

Here is a Page Starter for you, made from the American Bandstand collection: just click on the link to go to my store and pick it up.

Here are the previews and layouts from my Creative Team for inspiration.  The collection is on sale through Feb 3 - don't miss out!

Scrapping from A to Z with Kathryn Estry

Hi!  I'm Kathryn, and I design for My Memories.  Welcome to my fourth round of my scrap series, From A to Z! With every post, I'll show you a style, element, or other scrap secret to make your pages look amazing. The talented ladies on my Creative Team give me plenty of inspirational layouts, and I'm happy to share them with you!

I know you like FREE scrap supplies, right?  I'll show you a couple of layouts in each of my blogs posts, and I invite you to try some of your own! Post your layouts in my matching Challenge Thread, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z. Everyone who posts a layout in this month's thread will receive from me the prize I have posted with this month's challenge.  To make it extra sweet, your layout can be about anything I've shown you in ANY of my A to Z challenges!  Now, on to today's idea.

S is for ...


You can't help but be happy with sunshines in your layouts.  It isn't the most common element, but my Creative Team has used some suns from Cookout Ant-ics and Once Upon a Dream. Thanks to Yvonne, Kabra, and Olga for their sunshine pages!  Enjoy!

Remember to head over to my A to Z Challenge, check out the prize, and show me a layout where YOU've included a sun or sunshine.

Documenting your life with ADB Designs


Sometimes I just like to create something that is outside my usual "vintage box". Winter Fun is that departure; it is a silly and delightful collection of winter sports fun with moose as the participants.  You will find it perfect for scrapping the kids at play.


What silly or funny winter story or moment do you have to share with family? Scrap it so the story is not lost, stories are what make our layouts special.

Here is a page starter gift to help you get started. Just click on the image and it will take you to my store - just add it to your cart.

Here are the collection previews and the layouts from my Creative Team for inspiration.

Hope your New Year is full of fun and wonderful scrapping moments.
