Oh, the memories!

I've gone digital!  For today, at least.  :)

Last week, I posted about Craft Your Nest's newest affiliate, My Memories.  This week, I've been playing around with their My Memories Suite digital software, and I'd like to share a couple of my creations with you.

I've been creating with the Coast to Coast kit - it is adorable!  Here is a layout I created of my youngest son:

I'm a newbie at these digital pages, so I'm definitely learning as I go.  I did figure out how to add the star from a Persnickety kit onto the page, and I was pretty proud of myself for that one.  :)

I'm also working on an "abc" book of our family.  Here's a page of my middle guy:

The "abc" book will be a 5x7 mini-album when all is said and done.  The plan is to keep things simple, so all the pages will follow this basic layout.  I'll post when I'm all done (though it may not be finished 'til 2013!).

I've been enjoying playing around with the software.  So far, I haven't felt the need to throw anything at the computer in frustration.  ;)  I'm learning as I create, and I don't have tons of experience, but I'll definitely share what I've learned if anyone is interested.  Please comment and let me know if you'd like some tutorials.  

Also, if you're interested in trying the software for yourself, My Memories offers a free trial.  They're also offering $10 off for Craft Your Nest readers with the coupon code STMMMS12633.  As an added incentive, from now until Christmas, My Memories will be holding a random drawing for a FREE photobook from those who purchased the software each week!  

And speaking of FREE, My Memories has some Halloween freebies to share with you!  The designers have created some coffin boxes that you can use as decoration, or to store Halloween candy.  There are three designs to choose from, and you can download one, two, or all three!

The first kit has a scaredy cat design:

The second kit has a skull and spiders design:

And the third kit has a text design (this one's my favorite):

Note: you do not need the My Memories software to download and print these designs.  They are completely free and there is no obligation to buy the software if you download the images.

I hope you enjoy these freebies!  I'll be back later this week with a tutorial on creating the boxes!


  1. Wow Dawn - they say that digital addictive!! I should know - it got me by the throat. LOL

    Your layouts are wonderful!!! I LOVE Persnickity Prints digital kits!! WTG!!

  2. Really cute pages. I think digital is really fun! But I have to use up my paper supplies...

  3. Super cute pages, Dawn! :)
    And love the coffin boxes. Great for treats for Halloween :)
    Gale - I have to admit, I am a paper scrapper, too.
    I could probably scrap the rest of my life and not use up all of my stuff (lol)
    But I do use digi elements sometimes on my traditional pages.
    Creating a whole digi page kind of intimidates me though.
    And it probably shouldn't!
