My Memories Giveaway!!

I’m back today with another freebie for you. First I want to show you a layout that my 11 year-old granddaughter made using the My Memories Suite 2 digital scrapbooking software.  I just showed her how to get what she wanted to use into the program and then she did all the rest!! And had a ball doing it!!  This is is her first digital scrap layout, I did use the face whiteout that I offered as a freebie in the past to hide the faces. She even changed the picture in this layout, it was a color picture.


She used a background from the Sweetly U kit by Kimb's Designs, it was a freebie. The blue flower came from another freebie that was made by SueBee.  Didn’t she do a great job?  She ended up doing 8 layouts that night!!


Here is a video tutorial of the My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software.

How Sweet it is…..

I’ve found an easier way to do digital scrapbooking for those who would like to try it but are afraid of PSP or CS. It is My Memories Suite 2!  I was given this program to try it out, and you just wouldn’t believe the fun I have had with it.  There are tutorials that you can watch on how to use it as well. It comes with with over 1,500 new papers and over 1,300 new embellishments. There is even a color swatch library with matching sets of papers and embellishments. You can also find kits (some freebies) at My Memories to add to it. Plus all the kits you may find across the internet will work with it as well!  How sweet is that?

Now I want to show you some of the layouts that I’ve made using My Memories Suite 2.

This one I did for the challenge at the My Memories Blog for this week. You know how I love challenges. I used the kit Angel of Mine by  MagicalReality Designs in this layout of me back in my early school days.  The title I made in the My Memories Suite 2.


This next one I made using a freebie kit from My Memories, called Loving You 2 by Vera Lim. I made the word art for this one using a font from the challenge for last week at the My Memories Blog. Didn’t do this on in time to get in for the challenge but had fun doing it. I made the word art using PSP but was able to use it in the My Memories Suite 2.


I made this layout using Ancestors Legacy by Cari Lopez. Also from My Memories.


And this last layout was made using Please Be Mine another freebie by Vera Lim available at My Memories. The doodle on the background paper is from the My Memories Suite 2, the staples used are from Staple Fool by Traci Murphy, all found at My Memories. The word art used in this one is a freebie by Bethany found on her blog here


When I got my copy of the My Memories Suite 2 I also got a coupon for $10 to use in the My Memories Store so all of these layouts were free to make! And so much fun!! How cool is that? The best part of this is they gave me a 2nd copy of the My Memories Suite 2 to share with one lucky person here!!

Long Time Gone!

I’d like to say a big thank you for all that have came by and left messages checking on me. There has been so much going on in my life that I haven’t had time for scrapping at all. First the chronic pain that I have.  The big “C” cancer has hit my my family hard as well. They are still fighting this hard battle.  Plus deaths of close family members and friends, it seems like it is just one thing after another.

The other day I was looking through some of the digiscrap pages that I had made in the past and thought I would like to give it another try. So I swung by the color challenge over at DSO hosted by Kristine. I loved the colors and found a beautiful kit by Kimb's Designs called Sweetly U, and I had a play with it. In the first layout below I also used a template by Carena’s Designs

I also ran across some wordart by Bethany that fit these pictures perfectly so I had a play with it too. The kit used here is another freebie by Kimb's Designs called Spirit Wild Child Addon. I loved it so much that now I think I am going to go and find the full kit in her store.


Not bad for the first layouts in close to two years, I don’t think. Now I’m going to have to go and see what is new and catch up on things. Maybe do a few more layouts, and hopefully get my mojo back and be able to create something to share with you all.  Have a nice day and thanks again for stopping by.
