Digital Scrapbooking

As you may have noticed, I enjoy scrapbooking.  In fact, I love getting out all my papers, pictures, and embellishments and doing “Kindergarten for adults” as my husband so fondly calls it.  There is a drawback, though – it makes such a mess, and then I have to clean it up, lest my ever-so-crafty children decide to help themselves to my scrapbook supplies.

I have dabbled in digital scrapbooking from time to time, and found it to be really neat.  There is no mess, and you can reuse your favorite products over and over again.  With the advent of digital cameras, almost everyone can edit their own photos and these can be resized with no cost to you on your program!  Pages can be printed out, or just kept on file, so they do not take up that precious storage space (I have a closet full of scrapbook albums).

I have just come across www.mymemories.com, a site for digital scrapbooking that has some really neat kits.  They also sell My Memories Suite v2, a photo editing program that is simple and easy to use.  Right now, the coupon code STMMMS94566 will get you $10 off the program, making it only $30, which is a great deal!  I paid way more than that for my simple editing program several years ago.  :(  Copy and paste this code into your cart purchase, and you will not only get $10 off of the My Memories Suite v2, but the software comes with another $10 code for downloads, making a total of $20 in savings!

The site also has freebies and tutorials for using the program, making it a great resource for the beginning digi scrapper.   The page above is one of the freebies – a quick page designed by K Studio entitled The Sweet Life.  All you have to do is download it and plop your pictures into the template!  How much easier can it get?  This is a picture of my girls wearing their rain boots in, of all places, the desert.  Try your hand at something new and fun!
