I have some new tutorials for you guys on how to work with the My Memories Suite Scrapbooking software. Below are 3 video tutorials for you guys:

This week’s FREEBIES are Cupcake Liners and Toppers which you can use at birthdays, weddings, showers etc.!!! Here’s the link for everyone who has an MMS software to download this week’s FREEBIES:
If you are participating in the software GIVEAWAY which I am hosting or if you are planning on purchasing this software, you can also download these FREEBIES. If you don’t have this software you will be able to download these freebies, but you won’t be able to work with them.:) The Freebies automatically install to your software.
Here’s a sample created with this week’s freebies:

I haven’t created my own sample yet. I think that I’ll wait till it’s my birthday.;)
Here’s a tutorial for you guys on how this sample was created:
Cupcake Liner Tutorial

1.  Purchase or Bake and Cool Cupcakes.  If cupcakes are frosted, place in refrigerator and chill cupcakes before putting liners on.  It is easier to put liners on if the frosting is cold.

2.  Print your Cupcake liner templates on cardstock and gather supplies.  Each printed page will have enough supplies for 2 cupcakes. (Recommended supplies: small craft scissors, tape, foam squares, 1.25" circle punch, toothpicks and ribbon)

3.  Using the scissors cut along outside line.
TIP: Use a 1.25" circle punch to cut out the toppers.  If printed at full size, the circles should be exactly the same size.

4.  Wrap liner around cupcake and tape at seam.
TIP: If using a smaller cupcake, just wrap around at the desired height. You can place a smaller cupcake at the bottom of the liner or make it tighter and wrap it around at the top.

5.  Using foam squares or tape, attach the front and back circles together to form the topper. Insert toothpick between the circles.

6. Add a ribbon.

7.  Insert toothpick into cupcake.  Enjoy the finished cupcakes and share.  Don't forget to use your imagination.  The possibilities are endless!

That’s it for today’s post.
Love you all!

Purse Card Freebies

Hey everyone!
I’m back with new freebies!
Here’s the link for everyone to download these freebies:
You do need your My Memories Suite software to work with these freebies. If you don’t have this software yet you can participate in my My Memories Suite software GIVEAWAY. Everyone can participate and it’s open internationally; check out my previous post for details.

I have a tutorial for you from My Memories Suite on how to work with this week’s Purse Card freebies:
1. Print your Purse Card templates on cardstock and gather supplies. (Recommended supplies: small craft scissors, bone folder, 8-12" of ribbon, stapler, tape or velcro)

TIP: To print your information on the inside create another page with the template in place. Put all your text and embellishments in (leaving a little room on the edges) and then remove the template right before exporting or printing the inside page on the back of the first. This will keep from having to worry about if the templates line up exactly when cutting out your card.

2. Using the scissors cut along outside line.

3. Fold card at indentations.
TIP: Using a bone folder will help you get crisp edges on your project.

4.  Repeat by folding down top flap.

5.  Staple ribbon to both sides of your card on the inside to look like a strap or handle.

6.  Enjoy the finished cards and share.  Don't forget to use your imagination.  The possibilities are endless!

I created a gift bag with this week’s freebies by adding some extra pieces to the layout. I can place some gifts in my created shoulder bag and gift it to someone.;)

See you guys next time!

Grab your chance to win this fun software with which you can create wonderful scrapbooks, cool postcards, amazing gifts and lots more within minutes.

My Memories Suite is standing on the #1 position of all the digital scrapbooking softwares in the world.

This is the cover of the invitation card I had created for my granny’s 80th birthday. I had used Flutters My Eyes Quick Page and Cutout-Green frame which comes with the software. You can easily give your text a matching color with the picker option. I actually don’t have a printer of my own, so I had exported my layout in a JPEG format and gave it a green border in Microsoft Word to print it out via my dad’s laptop. I added a smiley on granny’s face cause I haven’t asked her permission to place her picture on my blog.

I had created these long back with freebies. You can easily create different layouts using a single quick page; turn around your quick page with one click for your next page(s) of your scrapbook with this software. You can also let your text follow a certain shape.

This is a postcard I had created with embellishments from the My Memories Suite scrapbooking software. I also gave this card a border in Microsoft Word.

I hope that you guys have saved the freebies from previous time; I had left the link to the Doorknob Hanger freebies open for you guys. I took some time off after my thesis presentation, that’s why I haven’t created any samples. This is a sample that I received from Liz.

Here’s the link to this week’s freebies:
If you are participating in my giveaway, you can also save these freebies if you like, in case you are the winner or if you are about to purchase this software later on. Kids love crowns, weather it is for a birthday party or just for being a prince or princess for a day. At Hindu weddings out here in Suriname, sometimes the aunts who bake grains and popcorn also get a crown and funny vegetable necklaces for fun. You can customize your crown with pictures or ages or however you like. Here’s a sample from Liz for you guys.

Check out my previous posts for more samples created with My Memories Suite scrapbooking software.
Hugs and best of luck everyone!

Happy belated Mother’s Day!

How’s everyone doing?
I am wishing all the creative moms, who visit my blog, a happy belated Mother’s Day! Moms, did you get any surprises? I am curious what my blog visitors got for their mom and/or how they made their mom’s day special? Do tell me in the comment section of this blog post about your Mother’s Day. I finally took some time off to do creative things with my Freebies, because it was Mother’s Day and I wanted to create something special for my mom. I have new Freebies for you this week. Here’s the link for everyone to download photobox Freebies:

This is what I had created with these Freebies for my mom; mom can place these photo boxes on her working table. The colors aren’t how they were supposed to be, because my dad’s printer is almost out of ink, but mom loved my gifts.

This is actually how the colors are supposed to look like; I received this sample from Liz.
Photobox Tutorial
 1. Download template file and install it into your software. If you don’t have your My Memories Suite scrapbooking software yet, use my discount code STMMMS35043 for $10 off your purchase at . You will be paying only $29.97 with this code for this cool software plus you will receive a $10 coupon which comes with the software and you can download lots of free kits at which are replaced by new ones from time to time, so you will never get bored working with this software.

2. Double click on the icon of your My Memories Suite software and choose for the option ‘Create Album From Designer Template’. Choose a template and then click on ‘Next’, then again on ‘Next’ and then on ‘Finish’. So your album has opened now. Now click on ‘Insert’ from the Menu bar and then click on ‘Add Page...’. Choose for blank page. Now you have a blank page. Click on the ‘Embellishment’ tab, then click on ‘Add’. A window will open and you can type in ‘photobox’ in your search box and hit the Enter key. From here you can choose the elements you want to work with and apply it on your page. Click on the ‘Photo’ tab from your ‘Contol Panel’, then click on box, then double click on the box and insert your picture. You can right click and lock your photobox layout if you like to bring changes to your picture.

3. When you’re done creating your layout, print it out, fold it and glue it into a photo box and you’re done!!!

I also gifted mom a cuff bracelet with a locket, in which I had inserted my mom and dad’s picture.

I had packed my bracelet in a little gift bag with a flower card on it, which I had created with the Freebies from my previous posts. I think that my little bag with my flower card on it looks cute. I had attached the flower card with a stapler and then glued the circle on top of the staple.

What do you guys think of the gifts I have created for my mom with Freebies from My Memories Suite? You only have to fold and glue to create your own little bag, flower card and photo boxes. So don’t forget to save the Freebies if you don’t have time yet to create fun things with them.

I also had picked a flower for my mom from our garden.;)
 At the moment, I am busy preparing for my test presentation of my thesis. If it goes well I can give a presentation for the big day. So I am very busy at the moment and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed, because I still have to work on my report. Do pray for me that my presentations go well and wish me best of luck!;)
