National Pink Day

That’s right PINK has it’s own day. Although pink is not my favorite color, it is a very pretty, and feminine color. Although I suppose I am not suppose to say that in this day and age. LOL When I was expecting my second child I wanted a daughter so bad. We already had a son, and we were only going to have two children. Because this was in the “old” days, it wasn’t possible to find out the sex before birth. So, I chose to have my baby shower after delivery in case I happen to have a girl. You see….I wanted lots of pink clothes!

Information from Holiday Insights

Date When Celebrated : Always June 23

“It’s National Pink Day, a day where everything should be basking in pink splendor! It’s especially a day for the ladies, as pink is a girl’s favorite color. Guys, you can participate in National Pink Day, too. Just get in touch with your feminine side, and display a dash of pink. Note: the girls will love you for it!

It’s easy to enjoy and to participate in National Pink Day. Bring your pink elephant out of hiding. Wear pink, and show off everything you have that’s pink, from clothing and shoes to other possessions. Be creative. Use food coloring to make pink meals. Pink frosting on a cake or cookies will be a big hit today.

The Origin of Pink:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a “National” day.”

While I have several kits with pink in them, I have chosen a few that are entirely or mainly pink. I hope you are able to use them for your scrapbooking.

Let’s take a Road Trip

Why? Because today is “Take a Road Trip Day”. I love road trip’s because there is plenty of scenery, and great places to stop and investigate along the way. Although some road trips that are repetitive are not so much fun. But today is about a new adventure road trip. I live in the U. S. A. and I love traveling to the different states. I have been across the United States five times by vehicle. I lived in Hawaii, and traveled to Alaska for work. I was fortunate to travel to several state through work for about five years. There are only four states I have not been to and I really want to go to them so I can say I have been to all 50 states.

When our children were young, my hubby and I would take them camping all over the Western States. The road trip was part of the fun. Deciding where to eat dinner was not so much fun. Everyone had a different place they wanted to eat at. I remember one vacation we told the kids we were picking the place for dinner, and they had to eat the food! They were over joyed when we pulled up to a soda shop where we allowed them to have ice cream for dinner!

Here is some information about today from Holiday Insights

Date When Celebrated : Always the third Friday in June

“Summer is here. The weather is sunny and warm. The kids are out of school. The summer vacation season has arrived. It’s time for a road trip!!

The road awaits you. Today is the perfect day to declare yourself a day off and just get away. This special event is on a Friday, so you can call in to work to use a vacation day and make a long weekend of it. While you can plan this day in advance, today will be the most fun by making it an unplanned trip. Be adventuresome. Go with the flow. Some of the best vacation memories come from a spur of the moment trip, with no prior planning or thought.

Here’s how to best enjoy Take a Road Trip Day: Your road trip is about the journey and not the destination. Sure, you can point to a destination, But, don’t get hung up about reaching it. Take a spinner from a kid’s game board, and spin it. Point your car in the direction the spinner indicates, and just drive. Make sure to stop along the way at points of interest, arts and craft shops, wineries and breweries, or any other place that attracts your attention. Keep off the superhighways and you will find much more fun things to do.

You can take a simple day trip, or you can pack an overnight bag and extend the road trip into the weekend ..my favorite choice. If you opt for the over-nighter, remember this is an unplanned trip, so pack your bag at the last minute. For those of you who can’t hit the open road without a planned route and destination, it’s okay. Just keep in the spirit of an unplanned event as best you can.

Origin of Take a Road Trip Day

This special day was created in 2019 by Bob Matthews of Rochester, NY and owner of Holiday Insights .

Matthews conceived the idea of this day while researching Read a Road Map Day. He realized that something was blatantly remiss. He felt after reading a road map, it was only natural to actually take a road trip.”

If you like road trips, I hope you get to take some memorable ones this summer. I have a few kits for scrapping those memories.

International Picnic Day

Today is International Picnic Day!

Information below is from – Holiday Insights

Picnics date back to Medieval times, when outdoors feasts were held to celebrate a successful hunt. Picnics really grew in popularity during the Victorian Era in England.

Picnics are held outdoors from spring through fall. Picnics are enjoyed by everyone. Young lovers with blanket and picnic basket in hand, are a frequent site in parks. Families and groups get together to enjoy picnics to celebrate just about any event, including Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and family reunions. As a matter of fact, any reason is a good excuse to have a picnic.

Picnic fare commonly includes a meal, snacks and outdoor games. Common picnic foods include hamburgers, hot dogs, macaroni, potato salad and baked beans. But, any foods are fair game for your picnic. We suggest you try something a little different at each picnic.

While picnics are enjoyed around the world, there is no international organization or group promoting it, to suggest it is truly an “International” event. International Picnic Day appears to have been celebrated for decades, but we did not find any reference to when it began.

Information below is from – Fun Holidays

Did You Know…

…that according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world’s largest picnic was held in Lisbon, Portugal on June 20, 2009? Over 22,000 people attended this picnic organized by Realizar Impact Marketing and Modelo.

I have a fun kit in my store to help you scrap picnics, park activities, and pool fun.

Springtime and a Sale

I am sitting here at my computer with my sweater on. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons because I can have my windows open. No need to use the air conditioner or the heater. I think spring is taking its sweet time getting up the mountain. We had hail just two days ago. I am okay with the cool weather because I don’t do well in temps over 65 but I would really like to start opening my windows for the fresh air. Wherever you live, I hope you are enjoying the weather. I try not to complain about the cold since I don’t want the summer heat to come but I think I would be happy with three seasons. Fall, Winter, and Spring.

To help me get into the spirit of Spring, I have added two new kits to my store; April Journal Elements, and March Journal Elements. I must confess I am not much of a journal person. I don’t journal in a book, and put just a few brief sentences on my scrapbook pages. I like to use elements to express my feelings of the photos. I also have never journal-ed on a calendar. Since some people like to do this, I decided to make a couple of kits with embellishments only.  For my samples I used backgrounds from my other kits.

You can grab these two kits for 20% until April 19th at MyMemories.com links are below.

Digital Scrapbooking with KJDdesigns

I have been designing since 2015. I am a designer/crafter at heart. I love to create. Sewing, scrapbooking, and origami are just a few of the crafts I have done over the years. As soon as computers started showing up in homes, and schools; I was hooked. I even taught computer classes all over the USA for five years.
As I was surfing the Internet one day, I came across an opportunity to win MyMemories Suite v2, so I entered. And I won! That was a while ago! We are now in version 9.
I decided to dig deeper into this “digital scrapbooking” thing and I was amazed at the number of Acronyms used. Just as I thought I had learned them all, I would see a new one being used. I was constantly asking what does this mean, what does that mean? LOL Think about it, a lot of topics have their own language. Math has a language of its own, as does music, boating, and yes even digital scrapbooking. So today, I am writing for the “newbies” in digital scrapbooking. I want to help you understand what everyone is talking about. The best advice I can give to the “newbies” is to join a forum. You can join MyMemories Forum where they have many challenges. This is the best way to learn new things and to push yourself to try something new. As long as I have been designing, I still learn new techniques, and short cuts. Also, purchasing MyMemories Suite will be a tremendous help in your creating and designing. Use code STMMMS84574 to receive a discount. So, let’s get started!

Getting to Know the “Lingo”

365/Project 365/Photo 365 – Refers to the challenge of taking a picture every day of the year and creating layouts. It’s like having a photo journal of the year.

ATC – (Artist Trading Card) These miniature works of art can be created in many mediums, including digital. The canvas size is typically 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches. They are often swapped with other artists or collected in a similar way to other trading cards such as baseball cards.

BLINKIE – A small graphic (often rotating or flashing in some way) to advertise a site, or a favorite designer. Digital scrapbookers will often display blinkies in a forum signature line, or on a blog.

BT – (Blog Train) A group of designers who make individual small kits centered around a theme and/or color palette. They post these kits for free on their blogs so when others go to the sites of each designer and download their kit, they end up with one large kit. You can be a designer for the blog train, a person who downloads the parts of the train, or both. Joining a Blog Train is free.

CANVAS – The area of your page in MyMemories where you build your layout.

CLUSTER – A grouping of digital embellishments.

CREDITS – A list of the designers’ names in which you used part of their product in a kit or layout. A list of credits can be placed in the Terms of Use, in a post or in a gallery where you are displaying your layout.

CROPPING – Reducing the size of a photo or cutting out a specific area of a picture to use. Just like with paper scrapping, you can crop pictures to use on digital layouts.

CT – (Creative Team) This is a team that is put together by an online store or digital designer to help them showcase their products and designs. Creative Team members are usually required to create and post a certain number of layouts in exchange for free product and/or other benefits.

CU – (Commercial Use)  Products labeled as CU can be used for commercial projects. With the items provided in a kit, you can create items or papers and resell them. Once again, be sure to read the TOU in the kit on exactly what can or cannot be done to the elements, and how the items can be sold. Usually if a kit is appropriate for commercial use it can also be used for PU/ S4H or S4O. The kit you make with CU items can only be sold for PU.

License – Allows you to use other designer’s creations in a kit that you re-sell. Some Licenses are free. Some designers require you to purchase a CU License from them before using their creations in a kit you sell. Licenses can cost anywhere from $5.00 to $100.00. Again, this information can be found in the kit’s TOU. It is best to always give credit to designers even if they don’t require it. It’s just the courteous thing to do.

CU4CU – (Commercial Use for Commercial Use)  Products that allow the customer to create their own commercial use products from the provided elements or papers. When using CU4CU kits make sure to read the Terms of Use. If a kit is CU4CU it is usually okay for CU/PU/S4H/S4O. Items that are used from a CU4CU kit may be sold in your kit as CU.

DESIGNER – A person who creates digital and/or paper products for scrapbookers to use.

DIGI/DIGI SCRAPING – An abbreviation for digital scrapbooking.

Digital Scrapbook Programs – A computer program like, MyMemories Suite, that allows you to create papers, embellishments, layouts, and photobooks.

DPI – (Dots Per Inch) Which is a measure of printing resolution. The industry standard for digital scrapbooking products is 300 dpi.

DROP SHADOWS – Shadowing added to your elements and/or papers to add dimension and realism to digital scrapbook layouts.

DT – (Design Team) Another name for Creative Team.

EHD – (External Hard Drive) which is a storage device for files that is separate from a main computer. It is portable and plugs into the computer via USB drive. It is a good way to have a back-up of your files.

ELEMENTS/EMBELLISHMENT/ELLIES – Individual objects that are found in a kit.  An example of an element would be a flower, button, banner, etc. These objects vary in size but should always be at 300px for the resolution.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

FONTS – A complete set of characters having different looks or designs.

JOURNALING – The words included on a scrapbook layout.

JPEG/JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) A file format used for storing and transporting photographs and digital images. Digital backgrounds do not need any transparent area, so they are saved as jpgs. If you are creating hybrid cards they can also be saved as jpgs.

KITS – A coordinated collection of digital papers and embellishments that are sold together as a set.

LAYERS – Similar to a set of transparencies that can be stacked on top of each other, to create your layout, used in some scrapbooking programs. MyMemories has layers so you can move your images around and place one on top of another.

LICENSE AGREEMENT – An agreement between you and a designer that would entitle you to the “use” of the item that is purchased. This agreement doesn’t give you complete rights of the image in question, but only the right to use it, according to the designer’s terms.

LO – (Layout) A layout is your finished scrapbook page.

LOTW – (Layout of the Week) Several sites and forums use this acronym when they pick a favorite layout to showcase.

ONLINE BACKUP – Storing photos and digital files on the internet.

PAPER/BACKGROUNDS – These are papers created for the background of a layout. They are usually 3600 pixels X 3600 pixels (12″ x 12″) and always 300px.

PB/BB – (Photobooks/Brag Books) These are pages that are completely pre-designed and flattened. You only need to add your photos and then share or print.

PHOTO EDITING – Making changes to a photograph in a digital editing program.

PIXELS – The tiniest piece of a digital image.

PNG – (Portable Network Graphics) Digital Elements that have a transparent background are PNG files. This can be stamps, stickers, or any type of element. Quick Pages are also in png format where the photo area needs to be clear so you can place your photo behind the QP.

PPI – (Pixels Per Inch) Refers to how many ‘pixels per inch’ there are in the makeup of your image. The digital scrapbooking industry has set its standard at 300pixels. So, when creating and making your elements and papers, use 300px.

PU – (Personal Use) You can use the product for your own personal use.

PX – (Pixels) The individual little color squares of an overall image.

QP – (Quick Page) A pre-designed digital scrapbook page saved in a flattened form with a transparent spot(s) for a photo(s). The only thing left to do is to add a photo or photos.

S4H – (Scrap for Hire) You can use the items to create a flattened layout for other people and they pay you for the service of creating the layout.

SCRAPLIFT/ LIFT – Copying (with credit) another scrapper’s layout.

SCREEN SHOT – A captured shot of the full computer screen on a computer.

TEMPLATES – Templates are usually layered files that you can use as a starting place to create a layout. You’ll need photos, digital papers, and digital elements to customize your layout. Most templates will allow you to move things around as much as you like for complete customization. Elements can also come in template form to allow you to customize them for your work.

TIFF – (Tagged Image File Format) A flexible format that can accommodate layered files.

TITLE WORK – The art of creating a title for a layout.

TWO PAGE LAYOUTS – A layout that spans two pages and looks cohesive in design across the space of an open book. Layouts are 3600px (12”) wide, a two-page layout will be 7200px (24”) wide. Both will still be 3600px (12”) tall.

New Kits & Sale

We have finally been having sunny weather here is the Sierras, and I am enjoying having my window open as I work on my computer. However, we are expecting some more rain this week. Seems it has been a cold and wet winter/spring for many of us. I hope you too are getting to enjoy some sunny days. It was nice to get out in the yard yesterday and do a little cleaning.

I have two new kits in my store, and my entire store is on sale until Wednesday, March 20th. I am starting to create journal kits. I will also be including bullet lists in some of these kits. If you have anything in particular that you would like to see, please let me know. Bullet lists, and journal cards are really popular right now. I also personally like flower kits so I have created another one for my store. It matches my Flor Mini Kit that was my part of the March 2018 MyMemories Blog Train. Here are the two new kits. Just click on the kit title to be taken to my store.
