***********


As a full time working mom of three, with my own passion in other crafts, its hard to make time to make a scrapbook let alone a photo album. I see scrapbooking moms who make FAB albums and I long to join the ranks. I've attempted to buy the expensive supplies and have boxes of memorabilia and photos in a "I'll do that one day" area of my home. Good intentions can make clutter! It seems so time consuming. I had this idea one day to just take digital photos of memoralibila and kids art so that one day I could make a digital album. I've now made a few digital albums which are nice but they don't express my crafty side. So I found a digital scrapbook software that let's me be really crafty but save money on all those supplies!! I love all the new papers but once it's cut you can't re-use it. I love pretty things but I also love to save money, don't you?!


My Memories Suite it turns out is really easy to use! I downloaded the software and got started. It literally took 2 minutes to make an album. I picked to make an album to autofill. Then selected the album theme. It showed me the page styles for the album and I could rearrange them or add pages. But if I have more pictures than would fit it will just add more for me, very cool! I picked my pictures and told it to go. It was super fast. The biggest part of your time is like a traditional album where you cherry pick your photos.  The trick is to start a new folder and put your best ones there, label it what you would title your own scrapbook album and then load into the software, easy peasy.

After that I took my time to move around a few items or switch a few pictures. Now I added my memory notes and captions. If i had questions the website actually has tons of VIDEO TUTORIALS, complete with a PDF that walks you through. WOW! I know many of you, like me, learn better visually. I would really recommend this software. There are so many more features that it does and I barely scratched the surface. My Memories Suite makes it easy to save the files to be printed by you or to a professional book. But what I LOVE is that I can save them as images and put in a movie file like I did below. 

PLEASE watch it for a special treat. If you regularly follow my blog you may remember our support of Avery and many ladies sent in knit or crocheted items. I've made a special album for you. Please watch and share this video. It not only showcases the quality of the My Memories Suite but your generosity in helping a very sweet baby to get the medical treatment she needed. 



So I'm very excited about digital albums to make of family memories and put them on DVD. This software will let you do that, too and also interactive albums. Be sure to check the other link below to see more. I will tell you that the software works on a Mac or PC. I am using mine on a Mac. A disclaimer. I did have some trouble on one feature but their trouble shooting team did respond quickly. It isn't a critical feature but it's to make the DVD. It did let me save the files to JPEG images and put into my movie program, which I preferred anyways. So this wasn't a big deal to me. The scrapbooking part is outstanding and easy with even options to tweak photos within the software!

Another cool feature that they have is you can download new "papers" anytime. There are several that are free and even more that are reasonably price. But they also have a low cost monthly service to get new designs to your inbox with a download code. It's called Design Club. I may do this feature soon because I get all the new stuff and I don't have to remember to do it. I don't know about you but reminders help me greatly! Oh yes and they also help you make photobooks, cards, calandars and gifts besides scrapbooks. 

I have a SUPER ANNOUNCEMENT to my loyal readers and followers. My Memories Suite, the #1 rated digital scrapbooking software from Amazon and Top Ten Reviews,  is working with me to not only give you a $10 COUPON on their software but they will be giving away a software package to one of my readers!! Cool, huh?!

I hope you are excited like me to start getting all those pictures into working albums. It's perfect for the holidays for gifts and memories. Actually I'll also be making an album out of knit items that I've sold or given to people to remember things I've made or document a special story with them, too!

My photo

My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on Vivaloom.com  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
