How to round corners on multiple photo's

This tutorial will show you how to round the corners of multiple photos on a page & how to round just one corner of a photo in the My Memories VS6 software. I love the look of just one rounded corner, you can do so many fun things with this feature. 

Check out the video and then have fun playing!

Adding text to a line using MyMemories Suite 6!

Adding Text to a Line in My Memories Suite Version 6

This tutorial was requested by a fellow My Memories Suite digital scrapbook software user for the new versions 6 software that just released. After having some issues getting my text to attach to a line I finally figured it out and figured it would be great to share with everyone what the trick is. 

After the video was created I was asked if you could delete the line. I went in and played and this is what I found. You cannot technically delete the line because the two are attached but you can change the opacity of the line to 0 and it disappears so it gives you the same effect! 

Here is the video:

Another Way to Use Masks by Happy Scrap Arts!

Designer Tip from Happy Scrap Arts

Another way to use masks

I love designing masks but I know it’s not possible to use a mask as a clipping mask in My Memories Suite. I’ll let you see here that it’s possible to use the masks in another way in My Memories Suite.
In my kit Frozen Masks I will provide you with the mask in black and also a blue version. You can use both as an embellishment on your background. After you have chosen your background paper, you can add the mask to your page. For the black mask, you can play around with the opacity making it more or less transparent so that it will fit your page. You can off course do the same thing with the colored mask.

On the mask you can put your photo or you can make a nice cluster and use the mask behind this. Using a mask behind a word art can give a great effect too.
I have 2 examples for you. You can see the ways I use the masks on these pages.

Download your FREE Quickpage HERE! 

On the first page I used the mask in a white version as a background on my paper. It’s very easy to do. Just choose your background paper and then choose the mask you want to use. Put it on your background and then you can start building your page by adding frames, elements and photos.
For the second page I did use the mask as a clipping mask on a photo in another software. I choose a background paper, then added the mask on the paper and changed the opacity a bit. After that I added the photo on which I applied the mask before. Then I added some embellishments.

Meet today's Daily Designer....Angel Wing Scraps!

Hi!  I am Jill or Angel Wing Scraps.  I am also the wife of a truck driver (married 18+ years).  And the mom of 5 kids.  Yes, I said 5 and to those who ask, yes I am a bit crazy.  LoL  It definitely gets crazy around my house with my kids, 1 boxer doggy & 2 cats.  I spend most of my day home-schooling 4 of my kids and chasing the 2 year old around the house.  When I am not teaching, I am either baking, gardening or designing.  I have degrees in accounting, but have found my true calling in design.  It allows me to be creative and also be home with my kids.  My most embarrassing moment was recently when we were all at church.  I was sitting with my youngest and an elderly woman came up to me and asked if we needed the whole row.  I politely said yes, that my other kids and husband would be joining me.  They then started coming in and sitting down.  As we filled up the row, the lady turned to me and said, "My dear, how do you have any color left in your hair with so many kids?"  My husband said, my face turned red and all I could think to say was, "I don't know."  But, I really do love my husband, my kids & my life.  Sure days can be hard at times, but I would not give them up for anything.
