My Memories Suite

The school year started and we have all been going a bit crazy for days are passing by very fast. Well, in spite all the busy schedule good things are happening around us. Baby E, is doing wonderful and we can't get enough of her.We have manage to become homeowners and learned a lot in the processes. We have been blessed this year.

 I got to know Liz Gardner and My Memories Suite 2. Have you heard from it? It is a digital Scrapbooking Software. It was rated # 1 in and To Ten Reviews.  I was invited to try it. I am usually not a scrapbooker but I have been trying to become one with the help of my friend Hana and her Little Bee blog. 

So, I made this Layout. It is officially my first digital layout. My knowledge of Photoshop is sadly very limited but with My Memories software is soooooooooooo easy to create pages. EVERYTHING you need to create your pages from embellishments to cropping your pictures. EVERYTHING! Check out their online store and find tons of ideas, great digital products and more.

So,they were very generous and provided me with a "Share the Memories" promo code for you guys to get a 10$ discount on the purchase of their software and a 10$ coupon for My Memories store.

So, if you wish to use this promo code.. here it is: STMMMS85157  (copy and pasted it to avoid mistakes) on their website and have fun! Wait! that is not all! I have tried it and they want one of my readers to try it too so they are giving a way a free software. So soon I will be posting instructions for you to play and have the chance to win the software.

 In the mean time keep reading I will be back with more tomorrow.

Another Thank You Card

Hello Everyone!

 Today I am posting an old card. I love this paper from My Mind's Eyes.Lots of patterns and colors.  I still have tons from this collection and I don't think I will run out if it soon. Which gets me thinking about giving this paper a different use other than cards. I keep going through Pinterest and all the favorites people pin specially the DIY pins. It is amazing the amount of creative people out there in the world.

When I created this card I was thinking of my fellow teachers and how thankful I am for their support and understanding in many ways. I am going to stop talking and let you enjoy. I apologize for the pics. They are not as great as they use to be when I was in Venezuela. Something to do with the time of the day I am takig my pics now.

Hope you enjoy it. BTW do you have something in your mind that can improve the looks on this card? Please let me know and dropping a line or two.

Thank You Stiched

Hello everyone!
 I am on a roll and I will tell you why in another post. But for now please enjoy this card I made. This is a stitched card using October Afternoon from the Modern Homemaker collection. I looooooove this pad.

 I also used  DMC 25 red and black to stitch the card and make it a bit different. I also used Inkadinkado All Occasions Stamps and Stampin Up Basic Black ink. The paper comes from the School House collection from October Afternoon.

The lay out as you can see it was not my idea. If you go to this link you will see that I am still a fan of Kristina Werner hehehe... (sigh) Oh how I miss her challenges. That is why I am using her layouts a lot lately. It is a bit of a challenge to make other's ideas work in your cards and in you own style, don't you think?

Come by tomorrow or so I will have more cards uploaded.

Nicest Thought

Hello Everyone!
 I have not being able to stop using (actually trying to use) kraft cardstock for cards. I loooove how other designers like Kristina used it with versamark and created this cartoonish effect. Anyway, here is what I came up with. It took me a while to get this effect going (lack of material or bad use of it ;))

So the layout was an inspiration from Kwerner and the rest of the materials and tools will be posted tomorrow. My little girl, Emma, is asleep and I have to take advantage of it while I can. Hugs to everyone and thanks for reading.

I used Versamark Ink pad, October Afternoon's Homemaker collection paper pad, Home Tweet Home stamps from My Little Shoe box, quite cute stamp! 

Anyway, you guys have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

For Jamie

Hello Everyone,

My good friend Traci gave birth  to a handsome precious little boy, Jamie, a few weeks ago. As usual I was late creating and sending the card. If you see this one and compare it to this one... you can see a great resemblance in layout. 

This card is a combination of products...let me see if I can remember... Paper is from October Afternoon Modern Homemaker Collection, Stamps are from Hero Arts Baby and Playful Animal Set. I really like the colors for a baby boy card. what do you think?

Relaxing Journey

 Hello there!
We've have had our hands full. Full of work and Emma. Yes, our little girl keeps us busy right after school. we take turns to feed her, change her diapers and play with her. 
My husband has been great with Emma and giving a hand. Always willing to help and sacrifice his down time for her. He is in love with Emma. It is a pleasure to see him with her from changing diapers to playing. Anyway, I made this card specially for him. There was a point this Summer when he got badly sick and needed a break and so I got him a gift card to a spa where he could chose a massage and relax.Yes, I tried to send him off to a relaxing journey.
 I was inspire by this card designed by Kristina Werner. Don't you love how creative she is? I wish she could continue  with her Color Challenges. I use to have tons of fun with those.

I used October Afternoon paper, Lawn Fawn' stamps, Stamping up ink, Maya Road Chipboard letters, Maya Road mist, American Crafts's rub ons.

Many Thanks!

Hello there everyone,

 I was suppose to make a lot of these cards to give to a lot of people during and after my pregnancy. Sadly it never happened. So here is one I made some time ago. Enjoy it!

So very small, very simple nothing-out-of-the-ordinary kind of card. BTW made with old tools and old Materials. I am almost embarrassed to mentioned them. So forgive me if I skip the materials and please enjoy the design.

Hello Everyone,

It has been such a CRAZY year for me here. Teaching, getting to have the yearbook started, finish and published and being very much pregnant. Not an easy thing to keep up with creativity, cards, sleep, and bunch other things.

I made these cards as part of a thank you small little thing for the yearbook club members. All students. We had a wonderful time finishing everything in a hurry. We got to use many digital kits from two peas. eat pizza during our breaks and watch Glee when there was no electricity.

Anyway, I have a few other pictures I would like to show you. Please bare with me as I tried to become a mother and keep my creativity up to part.

Hello everyone,

 I will go straight to the point here. I have been absent. I would fail all of my classes if I was a student in middle school. Fortunately I am not and as always, I owe you a big apology, please accept it.

There are a few things that changed a lot in the last few months. I am no longer working in an office. I was made full time teacher this year and I am in charge of yearbook (still terrifyed about it. Waking up at night thinking about how to go with it.) I am definitely bumped about not having inks to use my stamps or design paper... I keep drooling over other people's creations and day dream about all the products I don't get to buy/use/enjoy/ benefit from because we are so far away. (sigh). I love Pakistan but why does shipping have to be so expensive?

The good news is... at six months pregnant (yes, I am pregnant, how exciting!!!)... there is a lot going on in my head and belly. It is our first child and after the first trimester everything seems to be back to normal except the lower back pain.

I am really drooling now a days for baby room decorations I see from  and many other websites. Also many DIY ideas to decorate the baby room. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I have been busy trying to take care of myself, do my job as a full time teacher and think of ideas to keep the baby room very Pakistani.... (pics soon.)

 I would like to thank those of you who have wrote wondering about my whereabouts, the blog and my life. You just make me want to go online to 2peas and spend a lot of money getting everything I need/want to continue with my passion.

Many HUGS!
