Posted on March 12, 2016 at 10:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Just to say that the Easter Egg template in various sizes has now been posted on the Member's pages. We forgot to publish the page the other day, so it is there now if you want it. Make the demo cards and more!

Welcome to all new site members!

Extending a welcome to all new site members. We used to welcome everyone individually but with so many new people joining the site, it became impossible to keep up with, so here is a general welcome to everyone new!

I am thinking that if we keep getting so many nofitications of sign ups that we will send an email blast to anyone that has joined in the month, so let me know if you prefer not to receive anything .

We will be starting our Easter 2016 projects this week, so why not come along and join in!

Here are a few of the bright and cheery themed ideas we will be covering. Look out for the free Member's templates that will be posted on the Member pages.

Daffodils - the Easter flower

Posted on February 26, 2016 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Easter is often associated with Spring and Daffodils are in turn seen as a Spring flower. They always cheer me up when I see them, their vibrant yellow is lovely to see.


Here are a couple of very quick card project ideas featuring Daffodils!

Pick up a sample sentiment from the 'Words From The Heart' Collection to try.

You can find this in both PNG and JPEG format to download on the Member's Pages.


We will be posting a sample image next time so drop by again soon!.

Love Words Papers Fixed

Posted on February 8, 2016 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Just to say that one of the older downloads on the Member pages was appearing with some of the words missing. This was the Love Words collection which we posted a year or so ago. Hopefully this has been resolved now but let me know if there are any problems, as we fix things as we go!

Words From The Heart Digital Image Collection

Posted on February 8, 2016 at 11:30 AM Comments comments (0)

After much hair pulling and stress to get this finished, the latest digital image collection 'Words From The Heart' is now finished. Featuring 31 original Love and Valentine's Day images with a range of complimentary sentiments, this is a useful traditional collection that is designed for mixing and matching.


Demo cards will follow, asap but in the meantime, if you would like a sample image from this collection, I will be posting one up at some point over the next few days on the Member's pages, so have a look there, if you want to pick that up!

Heart Papers

Visit the Member pages for a free download of four heart papers for your Valentine's Day and other projects.

Happy Valentine's Day from Mementoes In Time 2016!

Member Pages Problem Sorted

Posted on February 5, 2016 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Just to say that there was a glitch on the Member pages 'Other Templates' page. The full range of files was missing but it has now been sorted out and you should find all the free download files that are meant to be there. The page has been renamed as 'Other Member Templates'. Aplolgies for any confusion but things stuff up occasionally!

Valentines Projects 2016

Posted on February 2, 2016 at 7:20 AM Comments comments (0)

A very belated Happy New Year to our visitors!


Unfortunately, personal events and circumstances as well as illness have made continuing this blog very difficult over the last year or two.


This means that I haven't been able to post projects and blog posts as often or as on time as I would have liked. However, I do try to catch up and post whenever I can.


I had completed various Valentine's Day projects a long way back but had not got around to posting up photos or instructions or make templates available but I am trying to do that this week, so stop by again soon.

Consider them very early for next year!

Sad News

Posted on December 20, 2015 at 10:25 PM Comments comments (1)

Unfortunately I have been unable to update the site over the last few days as my dear Mum had a very large heart attack on Friday last week. She is currently in hospital, very poorly, as she already had suffered a massive stroke a couple of years ago which had left her unable to communicate or move.


Obviously we don't know whether she will pull through but we are praying hard for her. Those who have read this site over the last few years know that all my projects are inspired by my beautiful Mum, so I thank her for her kind, gentle inspiration and encouragement and I know she will always be around in some way, still encouraging and praising everything I do.


I will be posting the final few blog posts already written but all new projects will be held over until next holiday season.


Best wishes and hugs for Christmas and New Year to you all.

Back at last

Posted on November 11, 2015 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (3)

Apologies for the long break in writing on the blog. This year has been a challenging one yet again and it has been difficult to get down to posting projects with the everyday issues of life getting in the way. Lots of projects have been made but not posted but I realised that if I was going to get any Christmas projects done, I would have to get going on them and post them up to the blog. So if like me, you have not yet got going on your Christmas projects, drop by and have a look over the next few weeks!

New Members Goodies Coming Soon

Posted on May 14, 2015 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (1)

Just to say that we will be posting another Member template very soon. I just want to test it and do a few demos before posting, so it will probably next week!

Flower Fancies Template

Posted on May 11, 2015 at 2:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Big apologies for the delay with updating the blog but life as ever has overtaken events. With one child bouncing off a trampoline and injuring a foot, to another going through important exams, let alone all kinds of other issues with other close family members, I am feeling stretched in all directions at the moment and completely run off my feet!

I have managed to do a few demo projects featuring the new Flower Fancies Template. You can get one of the four flower designs included on the template to try out on the Member Pages. 

Watch for the next blog post, where I will be putting the demo project photos and some project notes.

Site Updates and Other Stuff

Posted on May 3, 2015 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

We have been very busy spring cleaning the site recently so here are a few updates.

  • The blog posts have now all been categorised according to two year blocks, which should make them a bit easier to find. Don't forget you can use the search tool to look for keywords, if you are looking for anything in particular.

  • Quite a few of the links on the menu bar were not working, so hopefully they are all fixed up now. This is irritating if you are browsing the website, particularly if you are using an IPad or tablet, as the sub-menus don't show up, so links are really important to find posts. Big apologies for that. Please let me know if there are links that are down so we can fix them.


  • Also, all the Printable sheets for Members have not been available for quite a while (could have been a few months), as again the link was directing to the wrong page. The Members printables page has been set up again and you can find the links to lots of  printable files on the left hand menu bar, under the Members Tab.

  • The Project Notes pages are the archive for the blog posts and should contain all the projects featured on the site. There are a few projects missing, so these will be updated in the next few weeks.

We have had lots of new members (hundreds in fact) who will have missed those links, so if you have signed up in the last few months, please do visit the Member's Printable pages to get the files.

Message Board is back

Posted on April 28, 2015 at 12:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Those of you who have visited this site over the years, will have noticed how the Members Forum/Message Board feature has come and gone at various times. As my dear hubby says 'it's been up and down like a t**t's knickers'. I can only apologise for his crudeness but he has a point! :)


The reason for this is that it takes a lot of time and effort to keep checking up and responding to posts, without email alerts to new postings.We get around to responding but it doesn't happen instantly!


We have had a lot of new people signing up as Members to the site this year and it is very difficult to communicate with everyone. We also get questions on all kinds of things via the contact form, some of which we can answer and some we can't. There is is bound to be someone out there that can though, so maybe the Message Board would be a good place for that to happen.


Also lots of you have posted lovely comments on your profiles and it would be nice if Members could have the chance to communicate with others via the Message Board. Some people do just sign up, pay us a whirlwind visit and never come back but sometimes people want a cosy place to stay and mix with others.


There are lots of sites out there on the internet to visit but I would like this site to become a welcome place to 'take a break' and for people to come back from time to time. We don't profess to be 'any great shakes' but I hope that those who sign up feel that they are very welcome here and that we love to hear from everyone who visits, no matter how long or short they stay!


So, with these points in mind I have decided to put it back up again, with a view for people to post general comments and for others to respond, as they wish. Members can meet there if they wish. I have no idea how it will work out, as the success really depends on the input of Members but let's give it a go shall we!

Bear With Us!

Posted on April 28, 2015 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (0)

We are reclassifying the blog posts, so they are in a bit of a mess at the moment. Bear with us, as it will take some time but will make more sense to be able to look past posts up by years. We should have finished this by the end of next week.
