Something I'd never thought I'd do....(and a bonus for you!)


Happy Monday! Second to last Monday for me before I'm hauling myself outta bed early for work - eek! Where are these summer holidays flying by to so fast?!?!?

I'm popping in today with something that I, myself am pretty shocked that I've, no need to call the police and it's not something that gives me that guilty feeling (like when I've scoffed a lot of chocolate *wink*) it's just something that's never really jumped out at me until now...

<span class=

My gorgeous geek on our holiday by the seaside the other week (this was one of the rare sunny days we had!)

....scrapbooking. And not only that, but digital scrapbooking!

Believe it or not, I did once try scrapbooking many moons ago but the whole process of getting the right digital pics printed at the right size made the craft too time consuming for me; I need something I can complete in a shorter time scale or my mind starts to wander on to a new project :)

I have to say that the digital aspect of scrapbooking makes the craft much more fun for me and quick! Now I'll always be a cardmaker at heart, and have even found it pretty easy to make some cards with this software (I'll be sharing those later in the week with ya!)

So what software did I use? Well thanks to the lovely people of My Memories I was given My Memories Suite to play with and see what I could come up with. After spending some time playing, getting used to it and even checking out some of the easy tutorials I've found the amount of things I can do with this software are endless!
  • Use your own PNG or SVG files with the software
  • Add interactive elements such as music, video or narration to your projects!
  • Share what you create pretty much anyway you like! (CD, DVD, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter etc...)
  • Constantly update with new kits in store to add to the software (including fab free ones - like the one I've used in this layout!)
  • You can even create your own Blogger header with it!
Now for the best bit of this post. The lovely people at My Memories have given me something to give all my readers! You can get a $10 off the software and a $10 coupon to use for the store by entering this magical code:


So if you fancy having a nosy over there and a shop then be sure to use this code for a bit of a bargain :)

I hope you realise that I would never endorse anything that I didn't feel was up to scratch for my own personal crafty endeavours and that this is just my own opinion on the software. I know that I'll be using it again soon....stay tuned to see some cards I've made with it later this week!

Happy shopping!

Catch ya later!

Lovely page! And digi you say? Well I've never tried scrapbooking this way. Can't say I scrapbook much but this could be a way to go if it truly is quick and easy.
