My Memories Suite Tutorial - Adding Outside Content

It's easy to use outside content in the My Memories Suite digital software. Outside content is anything you buy and download from other designers and websites on the internet. There must be hundreds of thousands out there to choose from with more being created all the time.

In  a nutshell, you will download the content and save it to your computer. Make special folders to help you organize it all, you will find that saving digital content becomes an addiction and you'll have so many kits to keep organized on your computer!

Open the MMS software, choose a project type.

Add background paper and other embellishments by clicking on the "Browse other" button then navigate to where you stored the content you wish to use. Click on the name or the thumbnail of the item and it is inserted into your project, easy !

Here is a free pdf file that tells you how to use outside content in the My Memories Suite software.
Here is a how to video.

More about my project:
I created a 4.25" x 5.5" portrait album to make a greeting card. I made an inside as well as the front.
I used a digital download kit I found at ShabbyPrincess a couple of years ago, Holiday Magic . I inserted papers and embellishments from that digital download into the My Memories Suite software following the instructions to use outside content in the pdf file I shared above.

Thanks for looking =)
