I promised a new template, so here it is! Today's free template is simple but when you make it up, it is really effective. You know that flowers are really my favourite thing and I never tire of making them, paper flowers that is.

Update. Still here!

Posted on April 22, 2015 at 3:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Just a quick post to say although it has gone a bit quiet, I'm still here, just bogged down with all kinds of life issues at the moment.

I was quite blown away to see that the number of site members has gone over the 3000! That certainly crept up on me. Many people join up for a bit, some revisit lots of times and some drop in from time to time. So thank you to all who have joined the site. I hope y...

Those of you who have read the blog post on making the Exploding Box, from our new template, will have noticed that the second box, in a black and gold theme, contained a mini envelope in the middle. You can use a punch or die to make a mini envelope or why not visit the Member's pages, to find a Mini Envelope Template in four sizes! We'll be posting another quick project, using these mini envelopes in the next blog post, so drop by again soon!

Going Backwards In Time!

Posted on February 9, 2015 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Here at Mementoes In Time, we are clearly going backwards in time! All the photos posted over the last week or so seem to be labelled as 2014. As much as I would like to blame some other supernatural forces at work on this site, unfortunately, this is 100% user error, so big apologies for that. I'm sure most of you reading this, would have worked it out anyway but instead of going back to change them all, I'm just coming clean on the blog!

Welcome to new members!

Posted on February 6, 2015 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (6)

A big welcome to all the new members we have had joining up to the site over the last few months. We used to welcome each one of you with an individual message but unfortunately, this takes up so much time, that this had to be suspended for the time being! Rather than send a standard email to everyone, I would like to welcome you all here!

Not so much Facebook!

Posted on February 6, 2015 at 3:55 AM Comments comments (0)

We have been mulling things over and while we do have a Facebook presence, it hasn't really done us many favours as a site. People follow us and read our blog posts there and then often won't come to visit the website. The website is our spiritual 'home' and where this blog started, so we like to have visitors here rather than Facebook. For this reason, we have decided to continue to update the Facebook page but not as regularly as we update the site, as we want...
