A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by My Memories Suite asking if I'd like to review their digital scrap-booking software. As most of you know digital designs are a big part of my life and I use digital scrap-booking software to create the majority of everything I make. Its just so much easier to work with then Photoshop. So while I am not new to digital scrap-booking, I had never used the My Memories Suite software and was excited to give it a try.
Now, I have to confess that because I have used another program for years that I know like the back of my hand, it did take me a little time to figure MMS out. But once I did I really liked the program. While its not the easiest program to learn, there are some neat features that My Memories Suites has over the other programs I've used, like being able to add videos and Internet links to create interactive "online" scrapbooks.
So anyway, I thought the best way to give you guys an honest look at how this software works is to do a video tutorial. I'm going show you guys how you can make your own custom "scrapbook style" desktop backgrounds for your computers. Something like this...
The first thing I did was go to the MMS store and pick out a digital kit. I ended up purchasing this kit by Crazy-4-Monograms.
It is a super cute kit and it is HUGE! I was shocked at how much was in this pack! (Tip, if you become a fan of MMS on FB you can get a discount code for $5 to the online store. Score!)
I decided the easiest way to do a tutorial was through video. (Can you image all those screen shots otherwise?!) This is my first video of this kind and in hindsight I should have used a headset microphone instead of recording the audio through my web cam. So forgive the background noise.
So what do you think? Fun huh?!
Well, you can either have fun making your own, or if you want you can just use the one one I made. :) You're Welcome!
Be sure to click on the image to view it large and then save it as a PNG. This will make the picture cut-outs transparent so you can put in your own pictures. Here is another tutorial on how to do that.
Now for the best part...
My Memories Suite has kindly offered to give one of you a copy of their software!
To Enter you must visit the My Memories website, look around, and tell me in the comments what your favorite kit is.
