All of the Digital Scrapbook Day Goodies Right Here!

It is that time of year where all of us in the digiscrap community get to really focus on our love for our craft during Digital Scrapbook Weekend (Technically the day is the first Saturday in October, but who only wants to celebrate for one day?).  For us here at My Memories we really pull out all of the stops!  During DSD you will find, quite literally, the BEST deals we offer and we only offer them a few times a year!  In addition to the biggest discounts you will also notice that EVERYTHING is on sale!  I wanted you to be aware of all the wonderful deals that we have during this eventful weekend and to make it easy you can find them all here below!

Yep, the entire site is 50% off ALL designs from ALL of our designers.  No promo code needed to save, however you can save 40% off ALL print products by using the promo code DSD2021.  Once again, these deals are at the highest discounted rate that we offer, it doesn't get any better than this so don't miss out!  If you have never printed any products with us, now is the time to try us out!  Our print products are high quality and customers who have tried them keep coming back because they know they are getting a quality product that is hard to find somewhere else!

Need to upgrade from My Memories Suite version 8?  Do you love the software and want to share the love with family and friends?  We are offering a HUGE discount on our My Memories Suite software version 9.  Normally this software is $39.99, but during DSD weekend you can receive a savings of over 75% and get it for only $9!  My Memories Suite is an excellent way to scrapbook all of your timeless memories so that you can enjoy them and share them for years to come! All of the designs in our design shop integrate seamlessly into the software to make it easy to buy new collections to then scrapbook your memories!  It is a great tool for the beginner digiscrapper or the pro.  Another great part of the software is once you are done creating your scrapbook projects you can then choose to print a photobook, scrapbook page, card, or calendar to be professionally printed or you can export to a JPG to print on your own or share the file with family and friends.

And last but not least, we are offering a free month of our Design Club!  Our design club is the easiest and most cost effective way to bulk up on your digiscrap content.  The monthly kits that you receive are exclusive kits from our designers that you can only get here.  We spoil our Design Club members and also offer them EXCLUSIVE discounts on our design shop and print products.  It is seriously, the BEST deal!  Don't miss out!

Featured Designer: Kathryn Estry


This page about me pretty much says it all, but I thought of more things even when I ran out of room.  Sometimes I wish my life would slow down just a tad, but if it did, I'd probably fill it up with something else.

Rather than write more about me, I'd like to share my heart: my sweet kids and their families.  My son, Tommy, is married to Audra, and their kids are Jack and Olivia.  Jack is great in all sorts of sports, and Olivia is a dynamic little gymnast.  

My daughter, Brandi, is married to Ryan, and they have a fun little trio of their own: Lincoln, Charlie, and Lucy.  All 3 are Lego kiddos, Lincoln and Charlie love to play really hard, and Lucy is a girly-girl who loves fairies, unicorns, and anything sparkly.

As a designer, it's really sweet that Robert and the kids are so proud of me and are always wanting to see what I've made.  Mostly they're happy because they know I'm doing something that I love.

Called "mako sica" or "land bad" by the local Lakota Sioux and "les mauvaises terres traverser" or "bad lands to travel across" by the early French trappers, both descriptions evoke visions of a harsh and inhospitable landscape, where dangers lurk down every canyon. The Badlands environment remains a rugged, untamed, and remote country, stretching across southwestern South Dakota and parts of northern Nebraska. Regardless of its name, the Badlands are beautiful and unique.


The Majestic Badlands collection is perfect for many different types of layouts, from camping, vacation and travel, and heritage to family and children. The palette is based on the colors of the Badlands. 

Documenting Your Life Question-Prompt [Q129]

  • What trips from your childhood hold special memories for you?
  • Which National Parks are your favorite and why?
  • Tell about a recent family vacation exclusively from one person's point of view. 

To help you get started, I have a frame cluster for you. Just click on the preview and go to my store and add it to your shopping cart and check out.

Here are the previews of the collection and layouts from my Creative Team to offer you inspiration. As always, my heritage collections can be used to scrap everyday life in addition to the theme presented in the collection. 

The collection is on sale through Oct 3 - don't miss out!

Happy scrapping!
