So much has happened since my last post. The bad news? I spilled coffee on my laptop this morning YIKES! But techy DH cleaned it up for me and here I am. The good news? I tried to post (unsuccessfuly - I have more to learn) this morning from my new IPad which I WON! How cool is that? I was doing my part and bought raffle tickets for the school's fundraiser. Who'd-a-thought?
I was working on my sample pages to show you for the My Memories Scrapbooking Software Giveaway I promised when I spilled. I have been having a blast playing and here are a couple of pages I have done:
Neither page took very long because the software is so easy to use. What takes some time at first is looking at ALL the pages and elements they have available. The software comes with plenty for you to make nice album pages. However The My Memories Store has tons of themes and ideas to choose from. I find their products very reasonably priced and there's always sales and freebies to download. You might want to check out their new Design Club - definite savings there!
When I think of all the "stuff" I would lug to an organized crop, or just the thought of digging everything out to set up at home I would spend most of my time deciding how to layout my page. I'd be lucky if two pages got done and then it's time to pack it all up again. There's a whole afternoon right there. Fine some days, but I don't have time to do that very often which explains why my 5 yr old's baby book is only partially done! Most of us have our pictures right on our computers so no more waiting for prints before we can start. With My Memories Suite, you can sit down and work on a page a few minutes at a time. You can even do a whole album in no time using one of their quick pages or themed kits. They have layouts pre-made or you can start from scratch and go crazy!
One of the other aspects I like is I am no longer as limited as to how big the album should be. My older albums could only hold a certain number of pages so I would have to choose which photos "made the cut". Now I can put a lot more into a single album.
Oh, and did you notice my new blog header picture? Yep, My Memories! It's not just for scrapbooks!
