This has been a rather monumental year when it comes to photographs. Sarah18 graduated from high school and started college. David14 graduated middle school and started high school. Sarah also attended her senior dance and David started playing football. What this means is that I have been taking a ton of photographs. While I never got into scrapbooking when I had actual hard copies of the photographs, I’ve discovered that digital scrapbooking is tons of fun.
I’m not a real technical computer person and I don’t have much experience when it comes to doing cute things with photos online so I originally thought using scrapbook software would be way more difficult than it actually was. I was given the chance to use a really neat digital scrapbooking software called My Memories. My Memories comes with a bunch of heat scrapbooking backgrounds that you can insert your photographs into. Or if you’d rather, you can buy different backgrounds for an extra charge. You can add your own text and embellishments too and it was so easy! You can even add audio and video! No worries, if you make a mistake, it’s really easy to undo.
When you’re done with your creation, you can print it it out or turn it into a jpg like I did to display it on your blog. You can turn it into a movie to watch on a DVD or on your iPod. You can make a calendar, poster or trading cards for a really neat Christmas gift.
I was so impressed with how many different layouts they have. You can stick with one of their pre-made layouts and all you have to do is upload your pictures where you want them. If you’re feeling more creative, you can use the elements that come with the package to create your own layout. If you’re looking for something specific, you can buy extra backgrounds from their site. They even have free downloads and a dollar store section where everything is .99c!
Take a look at the scrapbook creation I made with photos of the kids from over the summer.
And here is one I made of my parents:
My Memories is normally $39.97 and you get the digital software download that includes 20+ new templates, over 1,500 new papers and over 1,300 new embellishments. There is even a new color swatch library with matching sets of papers and embellishments. If you use code STMMMS87995, you’ll receive $10 off your order of My Memories Suite v2 along with an additional $10 coupon to use in the MyMemories.com store. This is a great savings on digital scrapbooking software!
