Girls Night Out

Scraps N' Pieces has a new kit out today called Girls Night Out. This was such a great kit to work with! The colors are so bright and so fun, plus the elements are awesome! I'm catching up on 2007 for now, and was able to use this to scrap pictures of my former roommates before I got married. This kit also has specific elements for your favorite girls nights, like knitting, scrapping, shopping, etc. The clear alphabet is so much fun too! Grab it this week while it's on sale for $2.50 and get the coordinating cardstocks for only $1.00 with coupon code SNPGNO. Check the Scraps N' Pieces blog Monday too for CT freebies!

Golf was my husband's first love, so this is a kit I had to own. Now I just need to commit to spending more time with my husband on the golf course so I can get some more pictures taken! Amazing, how men just don't think about taking pictures all the time.
This kit has the best color palette and can be used for so many things besides golf. Especially little boy layouts. The argyle paper is my favorite one! It's also the perfect kit to pick up before Father's Day to get some cards made. (my husband and dad are getting the same card...shh, don't tell!)
The kit is one sale for the first week for $2.50 and the cardstocks are only $1.00 with coupon code SNPgolf. Images are linked so head on over to Stuff to Scrap and get this kit today!

Here's what I did with it:
I'll also have a freebie for you on Friday so remember to come back!

Proud to be an American

I am really excited about this kit release! Scraps N' Pieces has done another wonderful new kit, this time focusing on our wonderful military. Proud to be an American is incredibly patriotic so it's great for any 4th of July layouts as well as military ones. Previews are linked straight to the store.
I used it for my husband's scout pictures, and the colors were perfect! I also can't wait to get copies of my grandpa's pictures from WWII to scan because I know this kit will be perfect for me to use to preserve those memories for my family.
The kit is on sale all week for $2.50, so head on over and buy it now! You can get the cardstock pack for only $1.00 with coupon code SNPveteran.
Check out the Scraps N' Pieces blog on Monday for CT freebies from this kit!

My Memories Suite

For all of you digi-scrappers out there, I'm sure you use a wide variety of programs. I started out by using My Memories Suite(MMS) version 1. My mom got it for me and my 2 sisters for Christmas a few years ago. She has it too, and my dad even likes doing it. I loved this program and found is user friendly and super easy and simple. When my sister-in-law entered the digi-scrap world, she was using Photo Shop. I was completely clueless on that program, but got the elements version for Christmas last year, took a few of Lori's classes, and now use that program as well.

I have found MMS to be much easier and quicker to use. I also love that when I buy kits, they are automatically downloaded and organized into my program for me. MMS is exclusively for scrapbooking, so instead of working in layers, I add papers, then elements, and photos, etc. I have found that it's editing is bad, though. It doesn't remove red eye well and I have little options for changing my photos. I also still have version 1, so version 2 may be better in that area. I don't know. Now that I know how to use PSE, I feel like I can be more creative there, with things like overlays and photo masks (although instead of overlays, I have changed opacity in MMS for a similar effect). I can also use a wide variety of kits, instead of just the ones bought exclusively from MyMemories. I now switch between the 2 and have noticed when using a kit from Stuff to Scrap, I do it in PSE (although I could do it in MMS). Then when I want to use a kit from MyMemories, I use MMS (except kits purchased from them can now be done be downloaded for general use in any program). I also like the photo templates in MMS and use them when I have a lot of pictures to scrap, because it gives the page a clean look. I don't have many general use templates.

So, now that I've rattled on about the two programs I use, I have exciting news. Scraps N' Pieces now sells their kits at MyMemories! Formerly exclusive to Stuff to Scrap, they now sell in both stores. I love this, because now I can get their kits and use them in MMS and have them downloaded and organized like my other kits there. And although I've loved their program, MyMemories used to be lacking in their variety of kits. Inviting Scraps N' Pieces to sell there is a great improvement to their store! I am so excited for them. Check out their store here.
