New Kits in the Store!

Hope you are all doing well.  My kids and grandkids are back in school.  Our family is starting to finally settle into a routine.   We are enjoying the end of summer, and looking forward to fall.  I will be getting my fall decorations out soon,  to change things up a bit at the house.

Last month, I added two new kits, “An August Love” and “Knights and Damsels”.  I didn’t get my “Knights and Damsels collection” added until the end of the month, so I just thought I would highlight both of last month’s kit, along with a BRAND NEW kit for September. 🙂

August 10th is my annivesary, and also my parents anniversary. My parents celebrated 58 years together before we lost my mother. This kit is in honor of both of our anniversaries. It’s not your typical “wedding” or “annivesary” kit. It is full of flowers, vintage frames, & stickers. When you purchase this kit, you receive the Alphabet set FREE.
It has 25, 12x12inch digital backgrounds, 35 page elements and a 74 character monogram set. 


This pack includes my Knights and Damsels Combo Pack, Imprints, and you get the Mongram set FREE with this purchase!! This Bundle is perfect for scrapping all the “royal” photos you have of your favorite Knights and Princesses. Also works just as well for scrapping those fun Medival Festivals or Renaissance Fairs you have been to.
This kit includes, 16, 12×12 inch digital backgrounds, 43 page elements, 10 png Imprints, & a 71 character monogram set.
This is a great versatile kit, that celebrates all the joys of everyday life in September on the farm. My Grandparents had a farm, and I have great memories of times with them. Also although, we didn’t have our own farm, my Mother was always going and to the farmers market, or we had our own garden, and this was the time of year, that we spent a lot of time, canning, freezing and making jams. YUM!
This kit contains, 24, 12×12 inch digital backgrounds and 45 page elements.
There is an imprint set sold separately,

New Things in the Works!

Hi Everyone!   I hope you had a wonderful week-end!   The weather here in Tennessee has been beautiful.  I have enjoyed sitting on my deck a little and watching the birds.  We have so many different types of birds!

I am super excited about some new things in the works with Memory Mosaic!  One thing I plan to do is post a “Blog Freebie” once a month, for you to grab.  I have also started a FaceBook Fan group and you will be able to interact and share layouts, etc.  I am super excited about this.  I hope you will come over and join the group.  You can find it HERE.  There will also be FREEBIES on that page that only members will have access to, along with a lot of other fun stuff!

There is also a Newsletter Sign-up form on this blog.  Our Newsletter will go out the first week-end in June!  You are NOT going to want to miss this one.  There will be a special gift in there, JUST for our NEWLETTER subscribers and I will not be offering it anywhere else! 

This month, my Blog FREEBIE is “All Stitched Up” Mini kit.  It has 4, 12×12 inch digital backgrounds, and 10 elements.  You can grab it HERE through May 30.   ENJOY!

Coming Soon!!

Lots has been going on in our life here in Tennessee.  I had the opportunity to visit one of my daughters and her family in Florida over Spring Break.  I had such a wonderful time, re-connecting with old friends, and spending some Mother-Daughter time, and then of course getting in some of those “Nana snuggles”, movies and games with the grand kids!!  




This last week, the weather here has been beautiful!  I think Spring is finally coming to the plateau.  I just uploaded my new combo pack, “Vintage Spring”.  I am pretty happy with how it came out.  I learned to make marble and silk textured papers, and I have used both of these in this new kit.  Here is a preview…  


 

 Vintage Spring, should be in the store soon!!   

February is coming…

It is hard to believe that February is just around the corner.  Our family is doing well, and settling into this life that God is opening up for us.  There are still a lot of unknowns, but we are so thankful for his love and provision for us.

I started the new year, realizing that I needed to make some time to take care of myself.  So far to that end, my husband and I have joined a local gym, and I have also been taking time out to get back into designing.  I am really excited about the new kits that I have in the store, or coming out this month.  I have already highlighted 3 of them on my blog, “Burlap and Lace“, “Burlap and Lace Winter Combo“, and “Yesteryear“…  I’m going to let you see the 3 Brand NEW kits, that are processing, to go live in the store in the next week to 10 days.   I have really enjoyed working on all 3 of them!

First I have a new “Add on” combo for Burlap and Lace.  It is “Burlap and Lace Valentine Pack” & should be live later this week.

This combo pack, adds a touch of “love” to my “Burlap and Lace” collection.
Then I also have a new kit, “You Stole My Heart”, that is set to go live on
January 31st.  It is just a fun Valentine kit.
The last one, is my “Love You” collection…
This one has a combo pack, a glitter alphabet and some fun 
plaid papers.  It will go live in the store on February 1!
Complete with lots of glitter, chocolates, stickers, 
paper flowers, and 3 valentines!

So stay tuned.  Be sure to keep checking back at the store for these new arrivals. 
Besides these Kits, I am also going to be involved in two Blog trains in February!  
Lots of love to go around. 🙂 
Don’t forget in the midst of all you do to take care of everyone else, 
make some time to take care of yourself.
More news soon…

Fall Break

Hi Scrapbooking Friends!

It is starting to look like Fall around here, with our yard filling up with leaves, and lot of pumpkin and scarecrow decorations around the neighborhood.  The temperature here in Tennessee, still doesn’t feel like Fall, as we have had really warm weather lately, but I think that will be changing soon.

In August we moved into our new house, (well new to us! 😉) I have been busy getting settled, and trying to help our family feel at home here.  We are so thankful for all that God has done for us in providing this place for our family.  We also have been able to get both of our dogs here from Ecuador, which was quite a miracle in itself.

Along with all of that, at the end of August we celebrated my Dad’s 80th Birthday.  This was a special time, I had been planning with my Mom for almost 2 years.  I am thankful that I was able to carry out many of the plans we had talked about.  It was bitter sweet, as it was the last thing I had been planning with her, so once it was done, it was like another chapter had ended.

Scrapbooking has had to take a back seat as I walked through all of these things.  I am excited to get things going again, and am hoping to have several new kits ready in the very near future.  Our family is on “Fall Break” right now, so I have taken some extra time, to get some sales and other things lined up for the rest of October through December.  Hope you will come back in the coming weeks, to see what is happening here at Memory Mosaic!

Here are a few photos to give you a glimpse into my world. 😊

This is a photo taken of my Sweetie, my Dad and myself, celebrating our anniversary.  It would have been my Mom and Dad’s 59th, and my Hubby and I were celebrating our 36th.

This was taken the day we closed on our house. 😊

Here we are with our whole family plus a dear family Friend, the day we celebrated my Dad’s 80th Birthday.  It was wonderful to have our 3 older daughters, and our 12 grandkids here!!

And since our grandkids were all together, we decided we couldn’t let the opportunity pass to get a photo with Nana, Papa and all the kiddos… (I will admit that the photo shoot was pretty crazy, but it was fun, and we did get some great photos, thanks to one of my very talented daughters!!)

Here is a photo of the latest addition to our family… Odin, arrived last Sunday!  We were all so excited to have him back with us!!

Hope you enjoyed the photos.  I will be back in a few days with some Scrapbooking updates.

Blessings,
Joy
