Did you know that Saturday, November 5 (tomorrow!!) is International Digital Scrapbooking Day? In honor of that I am having a giveaway of My Memories Suite software. You all know that I like to take photographs (especially of my quilts) and who doesn't like to take them. But then what do you do with them? I have actually done paper scrapbooking in the past but that is very messy and time consuming. The perfect solution is digital scrapbooking!
Everything about this digital scrapbooking software was created to help you create albums and individual pages. You simply start by placing a background on your page, then move to the photos tab and move to the embellishments tab. They are all lined up on the right. For each thing you add, there are quick and easy to understand options like mats, shadows and shapes. Just remember, this is not photo editing software.
Here are a couple of pages that I made using the elements available in the software (except for that reedy looking flourish on the first page). Click for bigger.
Remember these quilts? Both of these were traded to the same person. The applique quilt was traded for a bronze dragon and the other one was traded for five cords of firewood.
I started my album by choosing a ready made page template and then chose a textured background of burlap. I then added a bit of color and my own personal embellishment. From there it was easy to just pop in the photos and add a bit of text.
This page uses the same background but different embellishments. I used some supplied elements of stitching and a button, perfect for a quilter.
Now I can hear you asking "But then what do I do with it?" Well you could do nothing at all with it or print it out at home or, this is my favorite, send it to a book publisher like shutterfly or blurb and have a real honest to goodness book printed. Or how about a greeting card?
So I have one easy rule for entering this giveaway:
Go to the My Memories site, browse around and then come back and leave me a comment on which kit you like. The giveaway ends on Sunday, November 6. The winner will be given a code to use in downloading the software. Good luck!
Update: The drawing is closed and keryn is the winner!
