So when My Memories offered to let me download their program, and gave me $10 to spend on their online store, I was honestly a bit hesitant. I mean, I suck at scrapbooking. I have scrapbooking stuff just taking up space and collecting dust. Would I be able to figure this out and do it justice? I went ahead and said yes.
The program was really easy to figure out. It's easy enough to navigate your way through if you've never had editing program software knowledge. I'm pretty familiar with the Silhouette program, and very well versed in Photoshop, so I was able to figure out the My Memories Digital Scrapbooking program very easily.
There are a TON of papers and embellishments that came with the program. Plus, their online store also has a TON of free stuff you can download. My Memories was nice enough to send me a $10 download code, so I had a lot of fun, browsing through their packages, trying to narrow down what I wanted to choose.
It's easy to figure out. You first open a page, decide on your layout and size.
Then it'll open up a blank page, and there the magic begins. You pick your paper, your embellishments, your photos, etc. Click on this next photo so you can view it larger, and see how much there is that you can do. One of the things I was most excited about was that it automatically pulled up fonts that I already have downloaded on my computer. Being married to a graphic designer = LOTSA fonts on my computer.
Since I'm scrapbookingly challenged, I decided to start with something super easy. The first page I did, I used a Quickpage. Basically, it's a page that is already designed, and you just drop in your photo.
Easy peasy, right? The second one I did, I used the Birthday Circus theme. It's far from the gorgeous layouts I've seen people do, but for my first attempt, I'm happy with it.
I did one more, after browsing through some scrapbook images on Google. Looks like lots of layers are the way to go.
Are you jealous that I've had the chance to play with this software? And of my free $10 download? Want a chance to win it for yourself?
