Cheering Up Your Best Friend!

As you know I’ve got a My Memories Suite Software Blog Candy giveaway running at the moment – ends 15th November so you still have time to enter.

I’ve been putting the software through its paces and I have to say that I am still really enjoying playing with it. As I’ve said I am a Photoshop Elements girl but I’m so happy I’ve been able to add My Memories Suite to my electronic crafty tool box. It is really fun and easy to use and has got me all excited about digital art and craft again!

I’ve got a digital card to show you today and I made this with the My Memories Suite software and Amy Teets Designs About Dad and Postcard and Emphera kits

It is all about the fun Wednesday!

Digital ATC With My Memories Suite

I’ve been playing with the My Memories Suite software some more, I wanted to see if I could get a bit grungy with it.

I thought I would try designing a card but in the end I turned it into a digital ATC! Well ideas do like to have the freedom to change!

I’ve used several layers of background papers added as shapes and then stretched to fit. I then changed the opacity of the shapes to build up the background texture. 

I spent my $10 promotion code that came with the software at the Dollar Store (last of the big spenders me!) and got some lovely kits including the Newspaper Paper pack, Morning Hush Paper pack and Grid Overlay that make up the background 

The butterflies came from the free Spring It On Extras kit and the buttons are in the My Heritage Pack from the Dollar store. I think the swirl came with the software under the Christmas section and the sentiment was also with the software under Memories.

So you can see I’m still having fun playing with this software. I’ve got a whole catalogue of digital papers and embellishments that I’ve accumulated over the years and the great thing is I can use them all even though they come from other places – so that is cool. 

The only thing I do miss when using the My Memories Suite software is the ability to manipulate layers and change colours more directly, I would also like to have a drawing tool, but then I am a bit of a Photoshop fanatic. However, for an easy-to-use crafting software for anyone not wanting to spend hours (and hours, oh yeah- I’ve been there!) scratching their head wondering how to do things then My Memories Suite is excellent. 

Don’t forget you can win your very own copy of My Memories Suite to download in my giveaway!

Catch you later.
