A few weeks ago I was contacted by My Memories about using and reviewing their My Memories Digital Scrapbooking software on my blog. I received a free copy of the full version of the software to test out. I decided to combine my cross stitch stuff and the scrapbooking by creating a page showing off some of the Christmas ornaments I have given away as gifts. I try to take pictures of them before I send them out and thought a scrapbook would be a pretty way to look at them later.
So here is the first page I made.
I used one of the installed templates and it was very easy. I clicked on each spot to add a picture and then browsed my computer for the photo and selected it. This feature, and the drag and drop feature and the use of text boxes for text is about the same for many computer programs and so it was very easy for me to create, and I think it could be for you too. I can now print it out and put it in my scrapbook album!
But wait there is more, I have not tried it yet, but you can create and send out entire electronic albums for your friends and family. There are templates to create calendars and I get emails from MyMemories about new things and recently there was one to make bookmarks in honor of the new school year. I hope make greeting cards too. You can even add sound!
You can also expand your templates and other scrapbooking tools by going on line and getting new templates or papers or embellishments (thinks stamps and stickers), etc. Some cost money, but many are FREE. I have not played with any of these yet, so can’t really report out on their use. I hope to do a scrapbook page update at least once a month if not more often - at least that is the current plan!
