Mementoes In Time


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...

I'm wondering whether anyone can spot the rather obvious but not deliberate mistake on this card I have made for my niece.

Have you got it yet?

Template, Digital Stamp or Backing Paper?

Posted on June 15, 2014 at 7:10 AM Comments comments (1)

The other day, I posted a request for suggestions for the next freebie. As usual the silence was deafening, :D so I have decided to go ahead and put together another free template for our members. I'll let you know when I get around to finishing that and posting it in the 'Free Stuff' pages.


Until then, I'm wishing all the dads in the parts of the world who celebrate Father's Day today, a relaxi...

I'm in the mood for doing another freebie but before I do, I thought it might be nice to get a vote on whether it should be:

  • a template,
  • backing paper or
  • digital stamp

Why not post your thoughts below or on our Facebook page!

Taking a Break

Posted on May 23, 2014 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (1)

The blog is taking another break for a while as we are on the move again. The site is open as usual for downloadable files and for new members to join and browse the free stuff but there won't be new projects for now.

More beautiful flowers plus a thank you!

No projects or free stuff today but I couldn't resist posting these photos of some gorgeous tulips, which are especially cheerful on a dull day like today. Sadly, the flowers are no more but at least I have a photo to remember them. A belated than...

A Photo To Inspire!

Posted on April 1, 2014 at 11:20 AM Comments comments (0)

When you are lacking inspiration in your creative projects, just step outside and observe nature. Nothing inspires more than the beauty of the natural world and in fact nothing we can create can compare, except maybe a good chocolate cake!

Those of you who have followed this blog for a while will know that we don't just post about our templates and products, but about papercrafting in general. That is why we have so many project tips, techniques, ideas and freebies, completely unrelated to items we have for sale, which fund the website.

I personally like to pass on things I have tested and found, as it is ...
