Me, A CT Member ?!??!

Soooooo excited - and this might be a bit premature, but I think I made a CT (Creative Team?) for a lady that makes digital scrapbook art ! I have yet to finalize everything since I just received the email response from her. After I sent the request for more information and letting her know that I may be interested, I decided I ought to make a digital scrapbook page with one of her kits. I planned on sharing the completed project with her as a sample of my attempts at digital scrapbooking.
I'm also sharing it here along with the links to her FREE felt digital paper kit and store.

Details for my project:

I used My Memories Suite V4 software for this project (I STILL can not get My Digital Studio to work on my computer anymore, it is soooooo aggravating)

This is an 8 1/2"x 11" portrait page, Design My Own option.

Textured background paper: Start off with textured blue background paper that is included with your software purchase. Insert a rectangle shape over the entire top of the background paper and fill with black. Reduce the opacity so the texture shows through.

Insert a photo, size to fit, add a white mat and drop shadow.

The flowers, leaves and banner were made by altering shapes in the shape editing feature of the software. I wrote a couple of tutorials on this a few months back:

I applied my custom made flower shapes (I should have reduced them in a size a bit more I think...) then filled with felt from the FREE Felt Creative digital paper kit available at from GraceBlossoms4U. Add drop shadows. Check out the rest of her new store here!

I then chose several buttons that come included in the software to add as centers to the flowers. Add drop shadows.

A simple text box on top of my custom made shape banners layered, color matching the text to the purple flower, for my kittens name.

If you are interested in purchasing a copy of My Memories Suite V4 software, be sure to use this code to save $10 off of the purchase price: STMMMS23251.  You will also receive a coupon code for $10 worth of digital content from their store (your choice!) AND a coupon code for a free photo book (you pay shipping and handling).

Thanks for looking =)


  1. How exciting!! Your page is wonderful! I need to check out her site too! Always looking for new goodies for MDS...

    Have you tried calling customer support? Otherwise, you might have to delete the program and download it again. I haven't had any problems with mine, so I'm not much help!

    1. Thanks ! Yes I did, Margaret. Tech support was very nice and helpful, but I am still unable to get it to work :( Maybe I have too many downloads ?!


THANK YOU for taking the time to leave your comments. I hope I've inspired you to get a bit crafty today ;)
