My Memories Suite and giveaway!

One of the gifts I recieved after the birth of my first baby was a scrap book album. I still have it at home after all these years but it's stored away, empty and waiting for my to fill it up. I had always envisioned pages full of beautiful pictures and decorations that you would see in lovely scrapbooks with heart-touching memories. I've been collecting a few bits of scrap stuff here and there but it all seems too much work and effort for someone who really can't "scrap" and "design" things. Fast forward and I've got the solution. Digital scrapbooking!

My Memories is the perfect software for those of you who like the idea and want to scrapbook but don't have the time, patience or budget to collect all the fiddly bits you need to scrapbook. Plus, once you have it all done you can print it out and keep using those images and designs forever!

My Memories is not only for scrapbooking but I used it to create the cutest quilt label. This was a free 'Howdy Cowboy' design that I easily downloaded and put in some text (names removed in the picture) and a photo. I used a blanket stitch for the border. It was that easy and it looks great. You'll love the software even for the great designs in the freebies section. I made it a smaller album size and printed it on special fabric that feeds through my inkjet printer. You do have to set your printer settings first before you load the software or it won't recognise your printer settings.
I also made these food labels using the frame templates for my daughter's birthday party. They were printed onto paper and glued to cardboard and a long skewer. If I had embroidery scissors it would have come out more scalloped but they were really cute. There are endless possibilities to using the software like creating your own invitations, posters, thankyou cards, birthday cards... you name it.
How cute is he? I created this page from another free template using a picture from his Christening. I haven't got a baby book printed out for him [last baby syndrome :( ] so I really must do something to fix that right up. There are heaps of designs you can also buy from their website and you'll just want to do so many things with My Memories Suite. Once you start playing around with it you'll find it so easy to create pages of lasting memories which you will love to print and share with everyone you know.
As a special for my readers you can get $10 off the price of the software which brings it to only $29.97 plus a $10 coupon is included to use in the store! Just use this link to get this special: My Memories Suite. That's great value.
You can also win your own copy of the My Memories Suite right here! Just visit the site and leave a comment on what design you would pick or what you think you would do with the software and I'll draw out a winner next week.

  1. I will use it to make my goddaughter's first birthday party extra special and save fistfuls of hair not trying to make the best of using MS Office.

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Cooking under pressure

The other day I saw a huge stack of Bellini multifunction cookers in front of Target. Of course the black and sleek packaging and design caught my eye and I stood there having a look at what they were selling. It was an all in one pressure, rice, porridge, cake, steam and slow cooker. It was half price so I really couldn't resist. I plonked it in front of the pram and the toddler walked.
I tried it with rice yesterday and it was fine but wasn't happy about how loud it was as it let out the steam and it spurted rice water over the lid so it doesn't win any gongs in that department. However, I made 15min soy chicken for lunch today so I was really pleased with that. In fact, I don't know how I lived without a pressure cooker for so long! I use to cringe about how it would take me 30mins at least to make a meal and now I can go from frozen to the table in about 25mins. How awesome!
I made this soy chicken using 8 drumsticks, 1/2 cup soy, 1 cup of vegetable stock and set …
