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! šŸ˜). 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! šŸ˜Š 
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!

Mags, What an excellent tutorial!! I learned so many tips. I scrap 8.5x11 portrait or landscape so will have to figure out how to do something similar. I still have problems using masks with MMS. Can you do a tutorial on using masks?

Thanks so much. Loved it!

This was a great tutorial! I love your frames and I will be using them a lot. I am new to MM and digiscrapping, so can you tell me what to do to get the entire frame inside the printing area. I will be printing my layouts in photobooks and I don't want the edges of the frames cut off. Thank you for sharing this tutorial!
