As many of you know by now, I’m some what of a digi-scrapping addict! In case you missed it I talk about how I came to begin digitally scrapping here. The bug that bit so hard has never gone away! I still also do pages for my scrap-for-hire site, Artistic Albums by Nicole. Although I’m not actively promoting it I just got 2 big orders from loyal customers and have been staying up late scrapping!
If you have followed me along my scrapping journey you know that up until this point the only software I’d ever used was Photoshop Elements. While it is true that PSE is wonderful for scrapping it is also far from user friendly! I actually ended up crying (literally) when I first was using it because I had spent an hour trying to figure a certain thing out and even with online tutorials I just couldn’t get it to work! I don’t get easily flustered or frustrated but I was pulling my hair out! Also PSE running price is right around $100-for you frugal (total side note, isn’t that a lovely word–we no longer have to be called “cheap” or “tightwads” -no we’re frugal!!! but I digress) if you are *frugal* like me that price is enough to make you drop the digi dream right there.
The wonderful aspect of MyMemories Suite is that it is extremely user friendly and also affordable! I put the above layout together in about 15 minutes and that was with never using the software before at all! (even with knowing PSE it still takes me a good 30 min to an hour to complete a layout start to finish) This layout is extremely simple but as I said, it was my very first try with using the software. They have a great feature in that it can be as easy as them building the pages for you, or you can build it all yourself, as I did above. You can still use their templates but I was pleased that I could move the photo slots around, delete them, or adjust their size-so even when using templates you can truly make the page your own. I took a picture so you can get a feel of what it looks like when you first open a template:
Another thing that I loved about this is that although it does come with a bunch of pre-built papers and embellishments already in the program, if you have digital scrapping kits on your computer you can actually go ahead and use them as well. I had actually fallen in love with MyMemories digital kits before I’d ever used the software or was approached by the company. I used the Coming Home kit that I had previously gotten from them to do the layout above, since I felt that it was only fitting! Their digital kits are extremely high quality, I love them! The ones I got are also scrap-for-hire friendly–which instantly endears them to my heart as well 😉
Just in case you’d like a little more in-depth look so you can see all of the great things that you can do with this software (you can create things like calendars, photo books, cards, videos and lots more!) here is a video:
