Today I again have a post that's a little different for me. My Memories asked me if I would like to receive and review their digital scrapbooking software. Most of you know that I'm not a scrapper, but I'm always up for a challenge and wanted to check out the software from a non-scrapper's view.
It was fun trying things out, poking around in this program. Actually, it can be a wee bit addicting.
This page went together pretty quick and I really like the way it came out.
For this page I wanted to try more layers, more embellishments. Check out the stitching, too :) .
After I uploaded the above page here to my blog post, I decided there was too much pink, so I went back to the software and changed the background paper, leaving everything else the same. I fixed the page more to my liking in just a few seconds.
This next one took merely a few seconds to create! I used a "quick page", meaning all I had to do was add the photo and I was done! Just think how fast you could make a scrapbook for a gift, scrap a party or event. You could easily make several to give friends and family members. Great gifts!
Below is my initial playing around with the software, trying things out, getting a feel for moving them around, forward and backward, etc. It dawned on me doing this that this is the perfect software for me to create 'sketches' for pages or cards. I've made sketches in the past and admit some level of frustration doing it. This program is perfect for it! I could also print this for a generic Hello card for quick notes.
So.... a non-scrapper's view of My Memories Suite v2 digital scrapbooking software. I really did enjoy using this software and I will continue to use it. I will use it in conjunction with my Your Story to create photo books and I will definitely use it as a designing aid for my paper crafting. I'll probably continue to use it for scrapping. It certainly was easy enough.
While it's called digital scrapbooking software, it's not limited to digital scrapbooking. You can create photo books, calendars, photo cards, DVDs, IPOD files, and more. You can start digitally, print and embellish with your scrappy supplies. While I didn't get a chance to try the interactive feature, IPOD or DVD file creating, or inserting music, I bet it is pretty darn cool! Check out all the amazing papers, embellishments, kits, etc., available in the My Memories store. Many are free.
