One of the gifts I recieved after the birth of my first baby was a scrap book album. I still have it at home after all these years but it's stored away, empty and waiting for my to fill it up. I had always envisioned pages full of beautiful pictures and decorations that you would see in lovely scrapbooks with heart-touching memories. I've been collecting a few bits of scrap stuff here and there but it all seems too much work and effort for someone who really can't "scrap" and "design" things. Fast forward and I've got the solution. Digital scrapbooking!
My Memories is the perfect software for those of you who like the idea and want to scrapbook but don't have the time, patience or budget to collect all the fiddly bits you need to scrapbook. Plus, once you have it all done you can print it out and keep using those images and designs forever!
My Memories is not only for scrapbooking but I used it to create the cutest quilt label. This was a free 'Howdy Cowboy' design that I easily downloaded and put in some text (names removed in the picture) and a photo. I used a blanket stitch for the border. It was that easy and it looks great. You'll love the software even for the great designs in the freebies section. I made it a smaller album size and printed it on special fabric that feeds through my inkjet printer. You do have to set your printer settings first before you load the software or it won't recognise your printer settings.
I also made these food labels using the frame templates for my daughter's birthday party. They were printed onto paper and glued to cardboard and a long skewer. If I had embroidery scissors it would have come out more scalloped but they were really cute. There are endless possibilities to using the software like creating your own invitations, posters, thankyou cards, birthday cards... you name it.
How cute is he? I created this page from another free template using a picture from his Christening. I haven't got a baby book printed out for him [last baby syndrome :( ] so I really must do something to fix that right up. There are heaps of designs you can also buy from their website and you'll just want to do so many things with My Memories Suite. Once you start playing around with it you'll find it so easy to create pages of lasting memories which you will love to print and share with everyone you know.
As a special for my readers you can get $10 off the price of the software which brings it to only $29.97 plus a $10 coupon is included to use in the store! Just use this link to get this special: My Memories Suite. That's great value.
