Designer Tip by LLL Creations! Photo Tiling in MyMemories Suite!

Photo Tiling in My Memories Suite
by Lil (LLL Creations - designer at My Memories)

Photo tiling in My Memories Suite can be a fun way to take a single photo and make it look like several photos.  The key to photo tiling is to keep the main part of the photo from being sliced in half, so when creating the photo boxes keep in mind where the main part of the photo will be and then be creative!


And Voila! You used the entire photo but made it more interesting!



 NOTE:  If you ungroup the photo boxes to adjust the size of the boxes YOU MUST take the photo out of the boxes.  Just click on each photo and hit 'delete' on your keyboard.  The photo boxes will still be there.  You must adjust the boxes with no photos in them or you will warp your photo.  Then just add your photo again when you are done.

There are so many variations for photo tiling.  The limit is your imagination!



Here are a few more layout examples;

This is a photo of my oldest grandson (who is now 3 1/2) feeding his newborn baby brother (who is now 2).
It was a precious moment as mom and dad looked on cautiously ...
I thought splitting this photo into 3 really made it pop!
(The baby did not normally sleep in a toy box, it was for a photo shoot!  LOL)

I used 'Adorable Baby Boy' available in my shop.


 In this next example I loved the photo but not necessarily all the extra space around the boys.  
I could of just cropped the photo smaller but decided to use the extra part of the photo and have fun with it.
These are my grandsons this year having fun after being ring bearers at a wedding.

I used Wine & Dine Romance kit available in my shop.



 And on this next one I did not use any matting on the photo. 
This layout was easy to do as I just made photo boxes all the same size and staggered them and then grouped them.

I used 'Sunset Expressions' for this layout, available in my shop.



The kits used in all of the examples can be found in LLL Creations shop at My Memories!

I hope you enjoyed my tip.   Have fun experimenting with photo tiling in My Memories Suite.  It can be really fun to use!

Meet today's Daily Designer....Jen Wright Designs!



Hi, I'm Jen and I live in northeast Georgia.

I live with my hubby and daughter (20yr) and son (7yr old) along with our 3 cats (furry children) Coco, Jellybean & Muffin.

I love everything about design and scrapbooking. My goal in being a designer is to help teach you how to find your favorite way to scrapbook your memories and tell your stories.  I love creating things, scrapbooking and making tutorials that are quick and easy.  I use Photoshop and My Memories Software.  

My favorite way to relax is playing a games or a game of minecraft with my family together or watch our favorite tv shows together for a brain break from designing all day.

ON my blog you can find where every week I have a new template for free to help get you scrapbooking and teach you step-by-step how you can do it, quicker and easier. My goal is to have a minimum of 52 layouts a year (1 a week) and this year I have met that goal and I'm so excited! I love that with my memories software, I can put these layouts in a photobook, or print them out at any size and put them in as many albums as I like.  I even can create one for each of my children for them to have one day for their very own.

Don't forget you can grab this software for $10 off using my special code and we have a recent update to MMSv6!

MyMemories welcome's Triple J Designs to the Design Shop!


Writing or talking about myself has never been something I was good at. Some would say I am an introvert and I guess they would be right. I am perfectly happy staying home, reading or designing and not having to interact with others face to face. I do work outside of the home though, so I guess I am not that introverted....yet :)
I have been married for 10 years, have two kiddos (Son is 9 and daughter is 15....lord help me) and we live in Saint Louis, Missouri. I come from a HUGE family and still have not met all of them!
My grandfather was one of 10 children, my father is the oldest of  twelve and I am one of nine with two younger than myself. I have aunts, uncles and cousins GALORE....lol.
My mother is my neighbor and my younger sister lives just down the street. The rest are all over the U.S. and I am determined to meet as many of them as I can :)
