Designer Tip by QueenBrat Digital Designs


 Hello!  Welcome back to my blog series on 'Why Scrapbooking?

Scrapbooking helps you to mark years, seasons, changes and milestones. 

Most of us have a pretty fast-paced life with our families and jobs. As I look back at my twenties and thirties I'm like, "WOW! That went by fast!" But then I look at all the photos throughout those years, and it reminds me how awesome those years were. 

Weddings, babies, new homes, new jobs, graduations—these are all seasons in your life that you can document. The process of making these scrapbooks help you process each season, appreciate it, and remember the details while also creating something to look back on in the future. 

So let us start a new project today that will record an important day in your life.  You will need the following:


A digital software program capable of opening .jpg and .png files. I recommend My Memories Suite for this project.  Other software can be used if you have a working knowledge of how it is done, but I will be showing you projects made using the My Memories Suite.   



You can purchase the latest version of this software at MyMemories.com. You can use my code STMMMS64124 and save $10 on your purchase.  Grab it here.



2. Gather your photos. This is your chance to use a series of photos or if you have one photo that tells the whole story that is great!

3. A scanner to scan your printed photos onto your computer. Or pull them from your phone or camera directly if they are digital. 

4. Digital graphics that include digital backgrounds and embellishments (flowers, frames, ribbons, bows, etc…) to decorate your scrapbook page. I have oodles of digital graphic scrap kits available for sale in my MyMemories.com store here with themes for holidays, sports, love, memories, and much more.

5. A cup of coffee and some creative inspiration!

Are you ready to give today’s project a try?


This is from my newest kit "Autumn On The Farm" and is of my grandchildren, Riley and Remi, at our local State Park.


"Autumn On The Farm" is a great fall kit for your projects.  You can get it now in my store on sale here .
