MyMemories: Free Downloadable Digital Scrap-booking Kits

MyMemories: Free Downloadable Digital Scrap booking Kits

My Memories is a website devoted to digital scrapbooking. They sell both the software, and then various scrap booking kits and photo books. They also have the most amazing section of free downloadable digital scrap booking kits – absolutely free – for anyone to use.

You will need to create a free account on the My Memories website in order to get the free kits. However, no purchase is necessary. These Album and Photobook templates are intended for installation in the My Memories Suite software, which they make and sell. However, the General download will still contain all of the digital paper and page element files and template pages in a flat jpeg format so that you can recreate the template. The General use installer will let you use all their beautiful elements in programs like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, etc. Do note that the layered pre-built pages are not available in the general download, only in the version for the MyMemories Suite.

There are many free scrap-booking kits to choose from: 355 to be exact. I am a big fan of Steampunk esthetic so this Steampunk Ruin Quick Page Free is appealing to me. It is a very small freebie though with only one page element.

I also like this Happy To Be Me-Kit, which is far more extensive than the quick page above. It includes 5 digital papers, 22 page elements, and 62 monogram characters. The colour pallet of rose pink, powder blue, and darker blue is really pretty.

My Memories makes it easy to find other work by your favourite scrapbook template designers. Just scroll to the bottom and you will see other paid and free kits they have designed.

If you want to pick up the My Memories Suite software for full compatibility, now is not a bad time. I found coupon code STMMMS3764, which gives you $10 off the software. All prices are in USD. I have no idea when that coupon expires, so give us a shout if it stops working for some reason.

I thought this was a fun little freebie opportunity for anyone who loves digital scrap-booking. While the full benefits of each kit require the suite, you can still use most all the elements with whatever software you currently use for your projects. This is a great way to expand your current graphics collection.

P.S. Their website has been really slow for me. It might require an extra dose of patience to get your freebies.

Amazon Canada: 70% Off Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit

Posted by on May 19, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Amazon Canada: 70% Off Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit

Amazon Canada is offering 69% off this Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit for scrapbookers and lovers of arts & crafts. Originally $24.99, the kit is now only $7.73.

This kit comes with 189 adhesive foam squares, one adhesive eraser, 20 feet of transparent tape, 29 feet of double-sided tape, 10 feet of one-inch sticker tape,  a 0.75 oz bottle of clear-hold adhesive, as well as a very pretty reusable box. There is a wide variety of adhesives in this kit for your multimedia art, crafts, homemade cards, or more.

Most of the commenters really like the box and find the quality of the products pretty good. However, the major complaint among most the commenters was that the box was overpriced at $24.99. However, take 69% off the box and I am pretty sure the nay-sayers will be going nuts.

This is a great way to sample different adhesive products. Because of the lovely presentation box, the kit also makes a nice gift for little girls who love to craft as well as grown women who are into crafting or scrap booking. For this price you could pick up a couple kits to give at birthday parties.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Book Outlet Canada: Extra 50% Off 50 Stationary Items

Book Outlet Canada: Extra 50% Off 50 Stationary Items

Book Outlet Canada has the perfect extra sale for planners and organizers. Get an extra 50% off fifty stationary themed items at Book Outlet Canada.

The sale includes photo-albums, journals, diaries, bookmark packs, memo cubes, scrapbook kits, and much more.

I am not much for journal-ling or keeping a diary but I am always making Shopping Plans. I am an avid shopper which is not to say I buy a lot (which at times I do) but it is to say I plan a lot and buy strategically. This book includes a tear-off pad and a pocket for filing filled-in cards, and is purported to be the “perfect accessory for the keen shopper.” My ears are perked! Each card has space to write down the clothes, shoes, lingerie, and accessories you’re looking for. Instead of keeping such lists in my head (or on Amazon wishlist) I would love to have this book. Originally the book retailed for $16.95, and it is now on sale for just $1.99.

I have never been into scrap-booking but so many people are and I am jealous of how nice it makes their albums look. This Little All-Star Scrapbook Memory Kit is the perfect accessory kit (200 pieces) to decorate up your child’s memory books. Originally $24.95, it is now on sale for $4.99. While it says the kit is for little boys, I think the kit would be a great gift for anyone who is into sports whether that be little girls or even big boys.

Pay $3.99 base shipping and $0.75 for each book.

Amazon Canada: Up To 30% Off Cricut Cartridges

If you have a Cricut machine like I do, you know cartridges can be expensive, but Amazon has a great deal with cartridges as low as $18!

I bought my Cricut machine when it first came out because I loved scrapbooking. I haven’t done much lately because I’ve been too busy with work, but my goal this winter is to get some books done. I love using the Cricut, and not just for scrapbooking. It is great for arts and crafts for me and the kids and even for home decor. While researching for this post, I found some amazing ideas for using your Cricut, including decorating a cake!

Here are some of the ones I’d love to get:

  • Seasonal – December 25th – perfect for Christmas cards and layouts and decorating for Christmas parties – was $24.99, now $18.74
  • Sweet Tooth Boxes – perfect for making candy boxes for weddings, Halloween and Valentines day, or as goodie bags at any event – was $24.99, now $15.73
  • Winter Woodland – this one is a huge savings – was $69.99, now $26.24
  • Create a Critter – also an amazing deal – was $89, now $29.81

As always, shipping is free when you spend $25+.

Scrapbooks By Design Canada Coupon: 20% Off Valentines Day Themed Supplies

Scrapbooks By Design Canada is offering 20% off Valentine’s-themed craft supplies, including stamps, papers, dies and more. This sale is only on until the end of the weekend so hurry!

Click here to shop @ Scrapbooks By Design Canada

  • Coupon Code: HEARTS
  • Discount: 20% Off Valentine’s Items
  • Expiry: 17th February 2013

I love scrapbooking and while my office is primarily devoted to writing and working, it also houses my huge supply of scrapbook supplies. Scrapbook supplies can be pricey and add up quickly, so, when I see a scrapbook sale I jump on it. Valentine’s-themed items are on sale right now because Valentine’s Day is over, but in the scrapbooking world, I find that a good thing. Reason being is that I don’t have my Valentine’s Day pictures printed yet, so buying this type of stuff after the event works very well in the scrapbooking world.

These cute My Silly Valentine clear stamps are say just the right thing. Regularly $15, get them for only $12.

I love this Secret Crush 6×6 paper pack with 24 double-sided pieces of paper. I love using 6×6 for decorating my larger 12×12 pages. Now only $3.99, saving you $1.

This Love Note Collection kit is an awesome deal. It contains twelve sheets of double-sided 12×12 paper, a sticker sheet, die-cuts, tape stickers, pink corrugate paper and red glitter paper. What’s great about this kit is that you don’t need anything else except cutting and gluing materials, so this is great for a beginner or for someone who wants to keep a book co-ordinated. Regularly $21.99, get it for only $17.59.

Shipping is free on orders over $75.
