I have been feeling bad that I have not been keeping up with my MyMemories scrapbooking projects and postings. To help me stay on top of this, I plan to start a new weekly feature, My Memories Monday.

I am excited to announce the release of  MyMemories Suite Version 4 digital scrapbooking software. MyMemories is a fun and creative way to create scrapbooks, photobooks and more, whether you have a Mac or PC.

New Products and a Freebie

Hi Friends!

I hope the month of December, is off to a great start for you. For me it is a wait and see, I have been having back problems since March. Things were really bad over the summer, then cleared up for a bit in August. Constant tingling, is so much better, than non stop pain. However, the pain resurfaced last month. So, I stared the month of December, getting another round of  steroid injections. So far so good, I hope it sticks this time, if not, my doctors are talking surgery, before the end of the year. The thought of back surgery, has always made me nervous, and I really do not want to miss out on spending time with my family, or have to slow down, on making templates for you. Luckily, I had most of this weeks new releases, pretty much done, before I started hurting again. I made lots of Christmas themed templates, as well as a couple of collaborations.

New Products are 35% off for a limited time!

All my new templates, in this first section, are currently available at Nuthouse Scraps, and are 300 DPI, in PSD and PNG format. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap For Hire, Scrap For Others, and Commercial Use. Quick Page and Creative Team friendly. Shadows on templates for preview purposes only.

12×12 Templates




Horizontal 11×8.5 Templates




Vertical 8.5×11 Templates





Season’s Greetings

The designers at Nuthouse Scraps, have been hard a work, making  a wonderful Christmas collection – Season’s Greetings comes in several mini kits from our designers and add ons – you decide if you pick some favorites or get them all! I made these layout, and cluster templates, as my Season’s Greetings contribution. I really enjoyed making the clusters, I think I see more of them in my future. These templates, and clusters, coordinate beautifully, with my Merry Christmas templates, shown above. Please note, however, that my Season’s Greetings collection, is PU/S4H/S4O only.





The Nuthouse Scraps  CU Store Grab Bag for Winter & Sports, is now available. We made it useful for designers AND scrappers. Our December “Grab A Nut” turned out really beautiful and is filled with 10 CU packs for your designing (and scrapping) needs for Winter!

I have a Snow themed, 12×12 template pack, that includes 2 layout templates, 10 extra word art frames, and snowflake elments, in the Nuthouse Scraps December Grab-a-Nut. I have been enjoying working with waves lately, if you have not already figured that out! :0)


Coming Soon

If my back holds out, I have several more holiday themed items, on my to-do list. I plan to release a couple of hybrid projects next week, namely a Christmas ornament CD/DVD holder, and a mini ornament book. I also have Hanukkah, Kwanza, and a couple more Christmas themed layout and card templates, in the works. If you celebrate a holiday this time of year, that I have not mentioned, and would like to see templates for that theme, just let me know. I am always happy to do what I can to help out. I understand it is not always easy, to find templates that fit your needs. I also hope to post some layouts made with MyMemories soon, I have been working on them off and on. Last but not least, I plan to post products to my shops at Bella Zingaro Studio and Heartfelt Perfections later in the week. Again, if my back holds out.


As a special thank you, for reading to the bottom, of this very long novel, here is a little freebie for you.


Snag this fun freebie while you can, it is only available for a limited time!

This Freebie includes one 300 DPI template, in PSD and PNG format. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap For Hire, and Scrap For Others. Creative Team friendly. Shadows on template for preview purposes only.

Have a great rest of the day!

Lots of changes

Hi all! Thanks for stopping by. Since I have not posted in a while, I just wanted to let everyone know, I have decided it was time for me to stop focusing on designing layouts for Creative Teams, and become a designer myself. Since I take a lot of pictures, and I have found the number of multi photo templates out there somewhat limited, I am going to specialize in predominantly multi photo templates, so people like myself, can get a lot of photos scrapped in a snap. I am in the process of getting set up at a couple shops, more details about that later. In order to focus on designing my templates for you, I will not be joining any new Creative Teams. Of course, I will continue to CT for Leigh Penrod, her kits are just too beautiful to pass up, and I am still technically on the creative team at Polk a Dot Plum as well. Though they have been having site issues for some time now, and I am not sure if or when they will be up and running again.

I am also changing the way I scrap. It is not uncommon, for my family, to have 800 to 2000 or more, photos of a single trip or event. Trying to make each page a work of art, just is not getting things done fast enough. My oldest is soon to be 22 years old, and I still do not have a single yearly album, that is complete.  My main focus is now going to be getting those albums done. I plan to use the templates I design, to scrap the events, for which I do not have a lot of photos, relatively speaking. For the rest, I will continue to use My Memories Suite Software. Probably my most favorite tool in this program so far, is that it can automatically load photos into a page format for you. That feature alone, makes this program the best I have found, for helping you to build entire albums effortlessly, using one of the many installed templates, or designing your very own pages from scratch.

If you would like to create a complete album in minutes, I highly recommend My Memories Suite Software! Get $10 off MyMemories Suite AND a $10 gift certificate to use in their online store, by using this code STMMMS32018 at MyMemories

My Memories Suite Software Review, Freebie, and Giveaway!!!

Hello there! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I am hosting a My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software giveaway! But first, I want to share with you a layout I made, of my niece hunting for Easter eggs at my house.  I used a page from Leigh Penrod’s Springs Serenade Stacked Papers . All I can say is, WOW! As if Leigh’s papers were not beautiful enough, she went above and beyond, in the creation of these stacked pages. I also used a frame and element cluster from Leigh Penrod’s Springs Serenade.

Those two elements are all I needed to create this beautiful layout!

As if that was not easy enough, I used my new favorite software My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software  to make today’s layout.  Since this is a new program for me, I have been having fun testing out all the features. I wanted to see how well the program worked with elements, papers, etc. from kits that were not designed specifically to work with the My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software, and it worked perfectly!
