My Memories Version 8

Right around Thanksgiving, My Memories came out with version 8 of their wonderful scrapbook software. I was so busy trying to keep up with everything else around here that one of their terrific enhancements got by me. A while back, the designers of MM gave us the ability to blur the edges of a photo. This year, we can now blur the edges of embellishments and imprints. Awesome.

You can also choose your color scheme for your program background. I prefer to work with a light background, but you can choose a dark or medium background.

One that I haven't tried is adding a PDF file as an image to an album. Another improvement is the ability to convert text to a shape. I haven't figured that one out yet.

Here is the link to what is new and improved in My Memories Suite v 8.

 The photo attempts to illustrate the blurred or faded edges of the embellishments, namely the branches and the star border.

My Memories Scrapbook Software - Version 7

What can I say, I love this software! Every year brings some new trick or challenge. This year's version 7, is loaded with goodies.

My favorite? Being able to blur the edges of a photo. The picture of my DH and our cat, Mouse, has been placed on a couple of mats. The top mat had its opacity changed a bit, and the edges of the photo have been blurred.


Now on the left side of the screen, under the gallery, there is a button for working with layers. It makes it so much easier to edit something on the bottom.

For more information go here.

You can even try it out for free.

Happy Valentine's Day!

 I took the time to craft a card for my wonderful DH for Valentine's day. I used My Memories Scrapbooking software and a hodge podge of kits. Then I printed it up on a 4 x 6 photo paper. I love how I could recolor some of the items (the hearts and the sentiment at the top.)
