I have always loved the idea of scrap booking since I became aware of it back in my pre-children days. My best friend made numerous albums and really inspired me to get into it. I purchased the papers & the albums & I really tried have a go. I wrote out lists of the pages I wanted to scrapbook and I even compiled a few pages, but just the thought of pulling all that out just to use it for an hour or so & put it away again (then cleaning up the mess) filled me with dread ( I just cannot leave things out on my table overnight ~ yes, I know I'm strange). Once we decided I would stay at home with our precious children I couldn't justify the cost of those products any longer. It was a hobby that was sadly retired to the back of the cupboard & slowly the papers were used for other projects & I gave up my scrapbooking ambitions! A few years ago however, I discovered the joy of digital scrapbooking & I was reinspired. Finally I could scrapbook without the mess & stress of having to clean up at the end of the time. Digital scrapbooking fit my personality so much better. Sure I still get to keep the memories and bring out the creative side of me as I play with my photos, but it doesn't involve numerous little pieces of paper that seem to hide themselves only to appear when my most fastidious friends visit!!
Being this way you can imagine my excitement when I was recently asked to review the My Memories Suite v4. digital scrapbooking program by My memories.
My Memories Suite is a distinctly modern, digital scrapbooking program that can be used to produce not just scrapbook photo albums, but also gifts & printables. It has many different options within the program to customise your product as much or as little as you like. Designer templates for albums are offered which make scrapbooking quick & easy. These can be easily altered to produce a unique product that displays your individual personality. Should you be more inspired you can also produce your own templates. There are many different paper, text, embellishments, & texture options to use to make your product completely original.
My Memories Suite is a perfect fit for any busy mothers' lifestyle providing a creative outlet with practical products produced at the end.
I found My Memories Suite very simple to use. I was able to begin my initial project without having to spend a lot of time learning the program which suits me! I found manipulating photos was easy & the program could accommodate my desired changes effortlessly. I was pleasantly surprised at the large selection of embellishments offered within the program. Their appearance is authentic & they make any page fun! It is easy to add or subtract an element and still end up with a quality product at the end all within a short amount of time. The program layout is uncomplicated & engaging making you wish you had longer to spend creating!
My Memories Suite has the ability to display your work in multiple ways. You are able to print your work yourself should your prefer or order a professionally printed photo album. You can also showcase your work in interactive album, DVD-video, movie or in ipod ready formats.
I decided to share our Christmas album with you & I have to apologise in advance for the photos ~ my camera is broken, but I am going lens shopping very soon which should fix it!
I had so much fun sitting down & making our Christmas album that I was inspired to continue. Maybe now I will complete those albums I was intending to years ago!!!
