All I Want For Christmas

I made this page using the Lavender Snow Album by Becky’s Creations ,which is one of this week’s freebies from MyMemories.  It comes with six digital papers and eleven embellishments.  That’s plenty to make several pages.12x12 Sampler-024

I used the recolor feature to change the color of the ornaments, ribbon and packages.  I love that feature because it gives me so many more options.  I wanted each one of the bows on the ornaments to be different, so I used the search feature to find three suitable bows, then I recolored them to match the ornaments.  I could have also used the bows that come with MyMemories Suite 5 if I had wanted them to all be the same.

Importing Pages and Objects from Albums and Designer Templates in My Memories Suite 5

One of the really cool features in My Memories Suite is the ability to import individual pages from other albums and album templates.  With My Memories Suite 5, you can also import individual page objects.  The method for importing has changed a bit since version 4, and is a little hard to find, so I put together this quick tutorial to show you how to do it.

If you found this tutorial helpful and you’d like to see more like it, please leave a comment. 

Disclaimer: I’m not employed by StoryRock, Inc,, the makers of My Memories Suite, I just love playing with their software.

My Memories 5 Layer Feature

One of the new, cool features in My Memories 5 is the layers tool. With it you can easily access and manipulate any object in your layout, even if it is completely covered by other objects.  There’s no need to re-layer everything just to get to an embellishment that is in the background.  I put together this quick tutorial to explain how it works.
