Pirate Ship Digital Scrapbook Page


This is a quick digital scrapbook page I put together to share with family members that were a part of the cruise we took a few years ago. I have been going through old photos to see if I had any of my extended family members that would be worth sharing with them and possibly make some digital scrapbook pages for. This is one of them.

I did a search for a "free pirate digital scrapbook kit" and this is one that came up in my search.
This cute mini kit can be found here http://eyeinspire.com/blog/2011/04/lots-of-goodies-april-blog-train-freebie/ as a direct download at the end of the post. It's free ! If you use it, be sure to thank the designer. I am going to go leave my thanks along with a link to my layout. I imagine she'd like to see what I made with it.

I used the My Memories Suite 5 software to create the page. It is pretty easy to use outside content in the program (the program includes lots of great kits and items). I make folders on my desktop to the items I want to use on the layout, then do a Browse through the program each time I want to add outside content in. It is just a couple more steps, but works well. The biggest quirk I've found so far in doing it this way, when adding a shape (such as my two paper layers which are square Shapes and the custom made banner), the paper must be filled into the Shape as a Photo. For some reason the program will not allow papers to be found as an outside item, they must be installed into the software. That is easy enough to do, too, but I don't want  a gazillion extra papers and embellishments installed into the program, possibly slowing it down not to mention taking much longer to scroll through the lists to find what I want.

If you don't already own My Memories Suite 5 software, you can buy it at mymemories.com. Use my affiliate code STMMMS23251 to get $10 off of your purchase, a 6x6 photobook (for a small shipping fee) plus a coupon code for $10 worth of digital content from the store ! The store has thousands and thousands of different styles and types of digital download content plus there are always sales and freebies. Soooooooo many awesome digital goodies to choose from it is honestly a bit overwhelming !

Lastly, a quick reminder that you have until November 22nd to share Anything But A Card creations this month at Anything But A Card !
