Sharing more digi LOs by MMS

Hi everyone, I thought I'd share some more creations I made. Having so much fun especially when I can use other kits, elements and papers from sites like Jessica Sprague (got my Cosmo Cricket and Echo Park from there - super cool!) and also Designer Digitals - they've got the coolest vintage effect elements that just make your LO pop!

Anyway here they are -

Hope you like them. If you'd like to buy the software please use the discount code here to get $10 off the retail price!

Now I'm off to do the draw for the giveaway! See you soon!

Crazy Card Challenge

Apologies for the delay, my son had a fever last night and I wasn't able to finish my post on time. Anyway he's all fine and dandy now thank goodness. Back to the card challenge, we had a lovely sunny weekend but today the feeling of Fall was definitely felt! Brrr...

Which brings us to our card challenge this time around. The theme is Fall/Autumn and the sponsors are The Stamping Boutique. I chose this lovely image of 'Autumn Fashion Boots'.

I made a 'faux-laroid' with the image and used a combination of distress inks for the overall image and promarkers to colour the image. For the papers I used Jillibeans soup's Dutch Mustard which has the perfect fall coloured designs.

Thanks for looking. Hope you join us for this fun challenge at CCW!

*Giveaway result - I'll do the lucky draw sometime this week so stay tuned!*

Crazy Card Challenge

We're back with another card challenge and this time our sponsors are The Crafty Pad.

This time the theme is 'new' - anything associated with the word 'new' - new papers/new items/occasions that use the word new

I've applied that to my card - A card for newlyweds and here it is -

I used the 'Roshell Ducky and Edward' image since I thought it would go well with my card's colour scheme plus the ducks are so cute! I used some My Mind's Eye Sunshine collection - love all the yellows!

Hope you'll join us for our challenge at CCW!

Have a nice weekend everyone TGIF!

My Memories Suite Review and giveaway

Hello everyone!

Over the weekend, I got a chance to have a play with My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software. I've dabbled with digital scrapbooking before but had a tough time with Photoshop so gave up after making a few pages.

Anyway, My Memories Suite is an award winning digital scrapbook software program that is extremely easy and fun to use! It's rated #1 by Amazon and TopTen reviews.

To be honest, I was skeptical at first because I am no tech genius but I was intrigued after seeing the lovely, lovely and did I mention lovely? designs on the website -

After downloading the software (which was pretty straightforward) I went on to create my first LO below.

I did a very simple one but loved it because after creating it I had no mess to clear! Of course I do love traditional scrapbooking still but this provides me a creative outlet on days when I'm not keen on taking out my supplies. I did this while lazing on the sofa with my son.

Excited on the outcome I carried on to create another LO and another and another! In a span of two days I was able to create 9 LOs! After getting the hang of it I went to the site and downloaded some freebies (which had a great range) and bought some other digikits and embellishments - I absolutely love love the word art ones! They make great titles and can complete the look of the LO in an instant!

There's a lot to choose from and the price range is great too - I'm certainly hooked! Here are some LO samples I made.

Crazy Card Challenge

And this time we've got Robyn's Fetish as our sponsor. The theme this time is 'Button it!' which I love because I do love me some button fun.

Anyway here's my card -

Love the cute kid reading since he looks like he's having a blast! I'm praying that my son will love books as much as I do (although I rarely read books anymore now - sad but true). Nevertheless I just love how the buttons pop off the page - they look like candy LOL

So I do hope you join us at CCW for this fun challenge!

Scrap Map Saturday


Anyway our Scrap Map Saturday for September is up and I love it!

Hope you join us for some fun - I'm still working on mine though. We just celebrated Eid and even though we're far far far away from home, it's still fun because one of our best friends is here! Lots of catching up to do thus a bit distracted from my scrap table - do forgive me.

Oh before I go did I mention the winnings? A guest DT spot and also one of our awesome monthly kits!

I'll show my LO once I'm done!

See you soon!
