Monster Birthday Card

I don’t often get the chance anymore to make kids cards, so I had fun making this birthday card for my nephew. 
Monster Birthday
I created the focal piece of the card using both My Memories Suite and Printshop Deluxe. I’m having a lot of fun with digital software.

Finished with a layered accent party hat and coordinating scrapbook stickers from K and Co.

Valentine's Treats for College Kids

I used to love doing treats for class parties etc. when my son was in Elementary school.

Middle and High School provided fewer opportunities but surprisingly, College has brought them back!

I think it’s because he and a lot of his dorm group are away from home and it’s fun to receive things in the mail, but also now that they’re actually older, they don’t have to pretend like this stuff is just too “kiddie” for them.

I decided to go with a turquoise and red color combo. Still not totally traditional for Valentine’s Day and incorporates a current color combo trend.

Making Memories Valentines

The tags for the goodie bags were made from a printable I created using My Memories Suite digital software. I resized the image and then trimmed the corners into a tag shape.

Valentine's Care Package (2)

I bought several different candies…Nerds, Smarties, Reeses Hearts, Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses etc. Oh darn...there may be extras!

Hugs and Kisses Card

I changed the printable size and used it on a card I made for my son, and also made him a special grab bag. I thought I had some bigger clear bags ( I can be a little OCD about everything coordinating!) but didn’t, so improvised with a brown paper lunch bag:

Embellised with misc. stickers from my stash and tied all of the bags with red and turquoise bakers twine ( Twinery).

Valentine's Postage Stamp Printable

I just have not had time to make a lot lately but  I did have time to make another Valentine’s themed printable ( even if I’ve done NOTHING about actually decorating yet).


I used my Memories Suite software to create this one and did a neutral and muted rose version, using a background paper called "New Orleans" that comes with the software.


Added the black and white version :)

BFF Open House Link Party #34 Wrap Up and Features

Welcome 2012! I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year’s. Ours was a quiet evening at home trying hard to stay awake until the countdown but we did it!

The last BFF Open House of 2011 was, as always, a fun one with lots of creativity shared. Here are just a few highlights:

New Year’s may be over but there’s always a need for creative party ideas. Homespun With Love shared these great New Year’s horns that could easily be adapted to birthday parties or other celebrations in 2012:

I’ve seen some great tea staining ideas but Lynette from Casa de Luna offers a new twist by tea staining lampshades for a fantastic chandy makeover.

This is the time of year where my thoughts ( THOUGHTS not always actions!) turn to organizing.
Donna at loopyloopcreations has a bright and simple idea that makes storage pretty and practical.

And finally, Katie from Creatively Living, shows how to take two wall sconces and turn them into one piece of fabulous:
You really have to see how this started out!

Thanks as always to everyone who linked up and look forward to seeing your creativity at this week’s BFF Open House.

PS The winner of the My Memories Suite digital software is :

Marilyn from The Artsy Girl Connection!

Capture Holiday Memories With A My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Giveaway

Something I’ve been wanting to do is play more with digital scrapbooking. Even if you’re not a scrapbooker , there are so many things you can do with digital scrapbooking software. Printables, signs, buttons or graphics for your blog.
New Year-001
I was so excited when My Memories gave me the opportunity to try their digital scrapbooking software and have been having so much fun playing with it. Even better, they’re giving me the opportunity to let one of my readers download their own copy! More on that in a minute.

One of the first things I created was my dinner menu for Christmas.
I used one of the templates (Holiday Snows)  that came with the software to make it.  You can use as is or modify by deleting, moving, or re-sizing elements. This was a very basic project that I did in about 5 minutes.

I used  pages from the album Holiday Simplicity in the post I did on the ginger bread cottage I made for Christmas. The designer albums allow you to use all or as few of the pages as you want and it’s super easy to drop pictures in.

In addition to all of the templates that come with the software, you can buy or download free templates from the My Memories website. They also offer some exclusive downloads on Facebook.

I also love that you can export your album or pages from your albums as JPEG files just like you would any other picture.

So now for the fun part! My Memories is offering one of you the chance to get your own copy of  the My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking program, a $40 value.

To be eligible (leave a comment for each thing that applies)
The giveaway will be open through New Year’s Eve and the winner announced on New Year’s Day 2012. What better way to start the new year off than by making a memory!

If you don't want to wait to see if you win , or if you see this after the giveaway closes, you can always use my My Memories code and get $10 off your purchase of My Memories Suite PLUS a $10 credit to the My Memories online store. Just type in STMMMS58014.

*While I was provided a copy of the software to use, the opinions expressed are my own.
