Designer Tip by QueenBrat Designs!

Have you ever found the perfect embellishment to add to your scrap page, but it's the wrong color?  Did you know you can re-color that embellishment in MyMemories Suite 9? With just a click of a couple of buttons that perfect embellishment will also be the perfect color.
You want to begin by opening up your embellishment in your project that you are working on. Stay on the layer of your embellishment that you want to change the color of.

Go to your CONTROL PANEL and click on the button.


Click on the MORE button on the bottom left.

Click on the PICKER tab at the top.

A box of colors from your project will pop up on the right.  Use your mouse to move around this box and find the color that you want to change your embellishment to.  Click on the color of your choice.  You will see the color fill in at the bottom preview.

Click okay and then okay again.
 Voilà!!  Easy peasy.  You’re done.

Inspired by Colors with Marie H Designs

Hi! I am Marie from Marie H Designs and I am here to present to you a blog series called “Inspired by Colors”. Colors are everywhere and it is also a big part of being a digital scrapbooking designer.

I get inspired daily in my everyday life by colors. Each colors tend to bring an emotion to us. For example Yellow to me bring happiness while Purple brings me serenity. I want to show you an image I have created about what emotions colors are representing. Sometimes it is accurate to us but sometimes we have another meaning for a color based on memories.

 I like to browse Pinterest or other sites like Designs seeds to simply look at color palettes and get inspired to create layouts (and kits as well).

I want to show you 2 colors palettes that has inspired me to create 2 products and layouts that I have created with them.

This color palette with the mix of pink, purple and aqua I fell totally in love with it and I have created with it a very girly kit “Just Breathe”.

And this is a layout that I have created with it. Since the beginning I had that photo in mind because of the aqua of the dress.

This next color palette is one of my favorite EVER. I could create over and over with it and would never get tired. When I see these colors it makes me so cheerful.

I have twiched a bit the orange to make it more redish and voila! Bohemian Style was born.

This layout with my little one I had to use this kit that brings back the colors of what she is wearing. I don’t know for you but I tend to either trying to make it match or go on the complete opposite when it comes to matching the products I use with photos I want to scrap.

 So how do you get inspired by colors when it comes to create layouts and memories to keep? Do you agree with the emotions that the colors brings?

I want to see your layouts and you are welcome to join me in my monthly challenge in the My Memories Forum HERE.

Designer Tip by MagsGraphics - Using Layout Frames in MMS


Hey Scrappy Friends,

This is Mags from MagsGraphics - I’m here to show off a new product of mine AND show you how to use it!

A few weeks ago, I went on my Spring Scrap Retreat with 4 of my local friends. In 4 days, I scrapped 70 layouts (and watched 11 movies! 😁). I’m always looking for ways to scrap lots of photos quickly so I can power through my own scrapbooks; one of the ways is to use these 12”x12” Layout Frames: 

For Photoshop users, they can easily crop a photo to fit any size or shape, but in MyMemories Suite Software, it is a little trickier. So I’ve made a video for you to show you how to use one of these frames!

It also helps that I specifically use the MyMemories Photo Box Shapes as a reference for the hearts and stars used in my Layout Frames.  I wanted these to work easily for MMS users.

Before watching the video, you’ll want to open MyMemories Suite and start a new 12”x12” project or photobook. You should also know what photos you want to use and what kit(s). For purposes of this tutorial, I am using one photo and several patterned papers - but the steps just repeat for multiple photos.

Be kind! While I am very experienced with MMS, this is my first tutorial video! 😊 
The collections used in this tutorial are BEACH PARADISE and 12X12 LAYOUT FRAMES. The WIZARDS WORLD Collection is also referenced.

  Now it’s YOUR turn! These layout frames, as well as ALL of my products are 35% OFF until March 22nd - it’s the perfect time to snag the new Frames and crank out some beautiful layouts!

Here are just some of the layouts created with my new frames!


I can’t wait to see what YOU make.
Be sure to stop by the MagsGraphics Gallery Showcase Group on Facebook to show off your work!
