55% OFF and NEW Crate Paper

We are finding new things in our warehouse everyday that we continue to enter into inventory and mark-down. You'll see this week that we added in some Crate Paper lines - Prudence, Lemon Grass and Mia, as well as many Graphic 45 lines. All of it is included in the 55% off sale. The only things NOT included in our 55% off sale are those items that we have listed in the "What's New" section of the store and a few AMM items that are already drastically reduced. Just remember to add in CLEAR3 at check-out and your items will all be slashed down to the sale price.

This has been happy dance week with the arrival of the new Jenni Bowlin Christmas and Halloween products AND the new Crate Paper Random and Farmhouse lines. They are SO gorgeous!!! Check out our "What's New" section HERE to see it in all of it's glory. If nothing else, it is just inspiring to look at, right?
I specifically got the buttons below because I thought they would be such an awesome match for these collections. You can find them in the "A Million Memories Vintage Goodies" section of the store (and they are pretty dang cheap)!

Happy Wednesday! Enjoy your week and PLEASE post your projects in our gallery. We'd love to see them.


Inspired by Kids

For today's inspirational post I want to share this image I found this super cute picture on pinterest.

Isn't she adorable. There's so much here that inspires me. As always the color scheme is a big one, because I am drawn to color.

I am also inspired by the lacy cuffs, the large flowers and big bow, the ruffles on her jacket, and her polka dot tights. Here are a few items from the AMM store that work perfectly with this picture and color scheme.

Sketchy Thursday

Hey ladies! It's that time again. I have chosen a LO from the AMM gallery and turned it into a sketch. I chose this LO by Janet G...

How cute is that little puppy face, and I love the design too. It's been a while since I've used a large circle on one of my LO's and I think it's about time to do it again.

Here's the sketch...

If you would like to have one of your LO's turned into a sketch all you have to do is post a LO in the AMM gallery between now and next Thursday.

Wednesday's Quotes

Since school just started up for us this week I want to share a few school quotes I found as well as some products from the store that will help you with all your back-to-school scrapbooking needs.

October Afternoon School House Mini Album only $6.99

Jenni Bowlin Red/Black Schoolhouse Alpha Stickers only $.50

Inspired by Friendship

Today we are going to be inspired by friendship. I just love this photo that I found on Pinterest. It kinda takes you back to the days of Mayberry. The soft subtle hues bring a since of peace and seems to slow the hurried pace of life. Whether the picture portrays three friends or three sisters is unknown, but one thing is for sure it portrays a deep friendship.

Take some time today to think about your friendships, whether it be with your husband, sisters, or girls you grew up with since high school and put together a little list of memories you'd like to hold onto forever and then get scrapping. To help you in your process I have created a color scheme based on the photo as well as some links to some products in the AMM store that suit this picture. Enjoy.

Sketchy Members

So I thought it would be kind of fun to turn our member LO's into sketches, so each week I'm going to choose a LO and from the AMM gallery and turn it into a sketch. As I was browsing through the AMM gallery last night I came across this adorable LO by Kate Vickers:

Here's the sketch:

I kept to the basic elements in the LO; the photo, the star burst, and the subtitle in the corner. Those three elements make up the visual triangle pretty much all you need to stick to, to make an awesome LO inspired by Kate.

If you would like to see one of your LO's turned into a sketch all you have to do is post your LO in the AMM gallery. I can't wait to see what everyone creates.

This week we are going to be inspired by where we live. Take a look at this gorgeous picture I found on Pinterest.com.

There are so many things that inspire me about this photo. The colors, the lace curtains, the textures, the flowers, the aged wood on the shutters. Use this picture to inspire you this week.

Here are a few things that may help jump start that creativity flow.

Color and Style Inspiration

I have been so addicted to Pinterest lately and really feel that it has given me a little kick in the pants as far as being inspired by color, fashion, style and even my culinary skills (as if I really had them -- not)! I notice that one of the hottest new trends today is the aqua and yellow color combination. Thought I'd share a few color palette bursts with you so you would see what I mean (note that all of my photos are courtesy of Pinterest).

This color combo can even be found in home fashions, such as here in this beautiful bedding and this TO DIE FOR wall hanging.

I even found some fashions echoing this trend. Isn't it gorgeous? With that in mind, thought I'd throw together some items in the A Million Memories store that can help you as a scrapbooker/paper artist use this trend in your crafting.

Here we have the Lily Bee Happily Lost cardstock stickers (just $2.99).

NOTE THAT NOW THROUGH 8/17/11, YOU CAN SAVE 60% OFF OF MOST ITEMS IN OUR STORE. Just use the code SUMMER at check-out for the discount. This includes most items in the store
