Creating Digital Watches!

Simply follow the instructions below to create these fun digital watches. You could create a row of them on a 12x12 page. Then print the page at the CM Photo Center, cut them apart and you've got some fun bookmarks. Have fun creating your own!

This idea was shared via The Project Center on my personal website.

Graduation Party cupcakes!

Jazz up store bought cupcakes with the Wishes & Dreams scrapbook kit, Circle Maker, Star (Galaxy) Maker and some ABC's letters. It'll help pull your party together in a snap...especially since the decorations can be made ahead!

Circles of Fun with Diva & Grunge

There's a fun, new CCS (Custom Cutting System) template coming out on July 1st - the JUMBO Circle! Use it to jazz up your traditional pages....but you can also create this effect digitally. Just select the TOOLS ribbon and cut a Circle Shape. Then fill that cut piece with a coordinating piece of paper. And voila! These examples are also showcasing the NEW Grunge and Diva collections that are coming out July 1st (both in traditional and digital formats). Have fun!

Create & Re-Use Workable Borders on your SB pages

It's easy to transfer the "Fast Formulas" scrapbooking concepts to your digital pages. Create some quick & easy borders to use again & again by just clicking to change the papers & embellishments.

I created these 12x12 borders with the SHAPES and saved them as different shades of grey. You can fit several on one page. Keep this page in your 12x12 Workable Templates project file so you can easily refer back to it. Then, just cut/paste the border to your project and click to fill the different sections with the paper, ribbon and embellishments of your choice. Fast Formulas are now SUPER FAST! Have fun!

Upgrade to MM3.0 and save $10 in June

There are so many GREAT new benefits and features with the 3.0 upgrade. Here are just a few…

Memory Manager 3.0 has enhanced features and more powerful editing tools than ever before. Here are the newest features in Memory Manager 3.0:

o More compatibility with StoryBook Creator Plus Software. You can easily add photos to a new or existing StoryBook.
o Change just part of a photo with the new Selection Ribbon. For instance, you can select one part of your photo to stay in color and easily make the rest of the photo black and white.
o Journal boxes in albums now offer rich text editing so you can have multiple fonts, styles, sizes, colors, etc. in one journal box.
o Clone a portion of one photo onto another photo.
o When you are importing photos, the software alerts you if one or more of your photos appear to already be in your Media Library.
o Delete an unwanted photo from the Media Library without having to leave editing; just delete and move to the next photo
o When you share photos with other Memory Manager users, they will see the folder(s) the photos were in, your Star Rating and journaling.
o Ability to determine how you want to view your photos – old to new, new to old, alphabetical, etc.
o New users can import photos and keep the current file structure. If a user has photos in organized folders on a computer, these folders will appear in Memory Manager when the photos are imported.
o You can merge Memory Vaults.
o New Microsoft Ribbon Technology matches the latest Microsoft software making it even more user-friendly.

Memory Manager has always brought you features especially designed for scrapbookers. Here are a few of our favorite standard features:

o The unique Memory Vault saves photos in one place, rather than scattered on the computer.
o The automatic backup function ensures a backup copy of all photos.
o Memory Manager never overwrites original photos. Instead, originals are kept and all revisions are saved separately.
o Memory Manager gives you up to 5,000 characters for journaling, to tell the story behind each photo.
o Our PrintTrack™ feature keeps track of which photos have been printed.
o Once your photos are organized and edited, it’s easy to create a traditional scrapbook, PicFolio album or a StoryBook photo book.
