my memories suite giveaway

If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time, you would know that I love paper crafting. I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years and have no plans to give up paper anytime soon to go digital. Please know that I am not anti-digital, it works for many people. I would just miss paper too much; it makes me happy. Now, I have played around with creating my own printable journal spots in my Photoshop program. I really like the flexibility that I have with making exactly what I need but sometimes it can take too long to come up with a design from scratch.

I was contacted by Liz at My Memories Suite last week to review the latest version of their software. As a paper scrapper, I was unsure about participating. But I was intrigued about the possibilities of creating my own journal spots in a faster way. After playing with the software for a couple of days, I have to say I am glad I said yes. The software is very easy to use. It comes loaded with paper and embellishments to get you started. There are also several different theme packs and photo templates to start scrapbooking right away.

To get started, I explored all the features and I made this layout using photos from Winter 2010. I love these sledding photos. This layout is from the Eskimo Kiss designer template collection. Originally the photo slots were on the left side of the page, so the first thing I did was change the layout so I was working with the mirror image. Then I added my three photos.

For the title I was able to use all the fonts that I have in my collection, which is nice. I also added 3 brads near the title, those are included in the software. Also included is the piece of rick-rack that I added under the title. The layout is finished with the journaling. Not too bad for my first digital layout.

I mentioned a giveaway in my I will no longer keep you in suspense.
