I have a surprise for all my Friends!

This will be a new post I'll do regularly. It'll showcase projects in various stages of completion and new designs ready to go out into my Etsy shops and Brown Gingham Creations website. I have a few things started..yes, all at the same time.....I do that to complicate things for myself..tehehe. I'm not going to showcase those right now because I have a Valentine Surprise for all my Bloglandia Friends. But, more about this later, and bear with me, you will definitely want to read more.


For a few weeks I have been playing with a new digital scrapbooking program I was awarded over at Daniella Hayes....Layers of Creativity. I posted about that HERE  Before some of you start LOLing because you know how digitally impaired I am, the My Memories Suite V3 is an absolutely wonderful point and click program. Now. you may be saying, 'Melody, you don't do scrapbooking?' Well, you're right, but I am always on the lookout for some great desk top publishing venues to make my blog and selling website a little unique and MMv3 is perfect. The banner above with the quilt and sewing embellishment was created by Me 8o) I can even add music or my own voice to this banner...uh....as soon as I learn how to do it...okay I haven't mastered the whole program, but wait......
I have also created a BGC tag that will be printed and attatched to all my creations.....

an 8 1/2x11 Stationary/Letterhead..........that can be e-mailed straight from program or print and mail.

There are a myriad of business apps for this program. If doing craft shows...signage. Need business cards?
Create your own design and take to the printer! Do you do seminars online or at locations...flyers to put in storefront windows, e-mails, or community bulletin boards. See! The options are limitless.
Oh, and it seems I have found I enjoy digi scrapbooking!


Print, add a little stitching, cut out, embellish with a little lace and sworovski, and you've got  an ATC..or..
Take a vintage pic, add background and some text..................................
print on computer fabric sheets and voila'...an embroidery 6x6 square to stitch up and apply to a pillow!!!
Can you tell I am LOVING this program. 
Recently, I was contacted by Liz of MMS and asked if I would like to try v3. I did and now comes the Valentine surprise for my blog friends.......dutdutdutdah..... 


She has allowed me to offer a free software download of My Memories Suite v3 to a lucky winner!

Hi Melody, I love the things you are doing on your blog. I would love to be able to change whatever I want without a lot of headaches. This program reads like it is easy to do. It would be a way to have the scenery that I want, plus give me some things to embroidery that isn't going to be found in the store. I think about you and all. You have had worse weather then we have. Have a great weekend and I would love to enter your contest. Your Missouri Friend.
