Recently I was given a wonderful opportunity to review some digital scrapbooking software as well as host a give away on my blog. This is so exciting for me, I have always wanted to try out digital scrapbooking, but, admittedly, was a little intimidated. I know it seems silly, I'm studying Graphic Design and I'm a Photoshop user, so how hard could it be? It isn't difficult at all, in fact, the most difficult thing for me has been not over-doing it because it is so easy to keep adding to a page!
My first page was pretty simple, I really was just trying to learn where everything was located in the scrapbooking software. I got the hang of it with the first page, and then I went back to MyMemories.com to download some extras. The software did come with a lot of papers and embellishments preloaded, but MyMemories.com also offers a lot of free downloads. There are also sample "Quick Pages" of certain kits that you can down load for free. Most of the kits I like were only between $2.99-$4.99, so purchasing kits is also very affordable.
|First Digital Page|
All embellishments and papers used on this first page were available in the software. After downloading some freebies, and purchasing some extras I created these pages:
|The Right Match|
|1st Time Camping|
For these two pages I have used some elements from the purchased kit Fish Out of Water, Simple Sherbet and Art Brush Vol 1.
All other page elements are available as part of the My Memories Suite v2 software, or as a free download on MyMemories.com . There is also a Dollar Store on the site, where elements can be purchased for one dollar. This is a good option if you do not want all elements in a kit, but just one or two.
I find it really fun, quick and simple to put together these layouts. Plus, when I'm finished creating, I just shut down my computer with no mess to clean up. Am I done paper scrapping? No. I love paper scrapping, and it has always been a goal of mine to do some hybrid layouts, as well as digital. There are some great effects that can be created digitally that you either cannot get by paper scrapping, or it is too difficult to produce. I am happy with what I can do in this software, and I think it is going to bring my scrap pages in a wonderful direction, whether they're digital, paper or a hybrid. So now I want my lovely blog readers to have a try.
