When it comes to scrapbooking, I always have high hopes and grand ideas for awesome layouts and pages. When it comes to the actual execution of those ideas, like with all of my craft projects, the end result is far from what I had in mind. Basically, I’m a talentless hack when it comes to crafting! I’ve accepted this long ago, so I know that I need all the help I can get. I really like My Memories scrapbook software because it gives me all the help I need to create really pretty layouts.

The program is easy to download and set up. I had it all installed within 20 minutes on a DSL connection. Learning the software itself takes a bit of time because there is so much you can do with it.  It’s easy enough that I managed to create a page in under 10 minutes, but I think it’s going to take me some more time to really learn all the neat features.  Here is a screen shot of a very basic page that I did in about five minutes (you can also see the layout of the software in it):

I did that one using the option to create my own custom page. I could have shaved a good five minutes off by using a template. The program comes with a few different design, but you can download tons of different designs on their website.  Most of them cost a few dollars, but there are plenty of free designs as well.

Aside from making scrapbooks, you can also use the program to create other types of cool projects. For example, Jake has been behaving really well lately, and I thought it would be nice to reward him with a “Good Behavior Award.” I created this one from a blank page, added a background, a photo, some text, and a few embellishments. It’s not super fancy, but for me it’s pretty decent! If I had more time, I could really play around with it and come up with something awesome.

I’m really looking forward to having more time to play with My Memories Suite some more and seeing what I can come up with.
