Let me tell you a little bit about the My Memories Suite 2 (MMS2)! It is a fantastic way for you to record your memories, and to help you complete your This Is Me Challenges!
Of course you can make digital scrapbook pages with ease, but that’s not all! You can add videos, audio, slideshows, make calendars, cards, photo books and then share all your creations with others. You can make an entire album with scrapbook pages and videos, make a slideshow of it, then email it to your mom who can see the whole thing! I think it’d be fun to take all those videos off my camera and make a video scrapbook!
(Seriously, how cool is this for any type of This Is Me Challenge you want to do?!?)
The software is VERY user-friendly, and they have all sorts of tutorials and helps on YouTube! They also have an inspirational blog with new ideas, info, giveaways, scrap challenges and projects from readers! See the video on this post for an introduction by My Memories on their program!
Here’s a little look at something I whipped up in just 10 minutes! (After I played around for awhile to get a feel for the program anyway.)
A couple of things I noticed while playing around:
*There are all sorts of patterned papers and embellishments that come with it. They are all in the same color of everything. (For example, if you choose Magnolia White ribbon, you can find Magnolia White brads or flowers or paper.) Easy for those who hate trying to find colors of things that match.
*You can do minor picture editing that include black and white, sepia, darken, lighten, fisheye, color negative, a simple border, drop shadow, etc.
*You can buy kits (or get free ones) through them, or use digital items that you already have. (Everything on my layout was from there except the circle where my journaling is—that’s from Crystal Wilkerson.)
*You can choose to make your layout using your creativity, or you can choose from a variety of templates.
*You can have your pictures automatically put into a scrapbook album for you! Perfect for that last minute gift!
