Even if you are afraid of technology you will be able to create something quite stunning with it and they even have some free layouts that are available to download straight into your program.

Here is a couple of layouts that I knocked together in no time.

this one was my first made from scratch just a two minutes to complete, it is my Nephew Craig and his gorgeous little boy Alfie.


This one was my second just playing with ready made photo layouts within the program and then adding the background and embellishment pieces to match. Grandson Jack


My next is a ready made quick page that I downloaded then added a couple of extra embellishments to finish. My Grandmother with her brothers and parents and my Great Grandma in the other photo.

I like Golden Days.

Luanne said...

Lovely! with this software we can make photos in the computer lovelier and livelier.
There are a lot of beautiful packs in MM site, my favorites {hehehe} are

"Radiant in red pack", "NOrth Pole express pack", "aye aye captn pack", "Happy halloween pack" and "Colorful". too many! :D

Trish said...

Wow Jak, how can I choose from so many gorgeous kits and papers- they have a vast selection including many freebie layouts and papers to give it a try.
I really liked Dare to Dream- the colours are soft and muted and I could imagine using them on photos of my little Grandaughter, Katie.
Thanks Jak... more to add to my ever-growing 'need' list!! LOL

Christine Harrop said...

Like Trish said, there are so many fantastic layouts. I cannot really choose between the Smell of Dreams and Happy Halloween packs, which are very different but equally great in their own way. Loved what you did with your layouts Jak. I'm sure I'd never manage anything quite like that!!! Christine x

Carol said...

Gosh such a lot to choose from and so difficult to find a favourite. I think I would have to go Christmas though and stick with Christmas Traditional. I'm off to download some freebies to try. Carol x

Pamela said...

Difficult to choose as they are all gorgeous, but think I would have to say Home for Christmas.

Maggie said...

WOW! What can I say?
Firstly, thanks for the link to My Memories Jak, I could spend all day working my way through it!
The Halloween combo pack by Valentina Creations caught my eye as soon as I opened up the link, and the Alphabet pack looks so cute. Don't have much time just now for browsing, but I do know that I will definitely be purchasing the Xmas combo pack by Lindsay Jane.
The packs are real value for money, with so many elements, papers and layouts in them.
There are a selection of free packs too that are made available to club members before they are actually available to the public buy! (I may even join this club too)!
I always check out the links on your blog and have found some great sites through this. Anyway,enough chat!
I have just recently gone over from cardmaking to scrapbooking and would love to win this software as I think it would give a great boost to me and my potential new scrapbooks. Fingers double crossed!!!

PeeJay said...

Beautiful selection and looks like a great program. Will certainly be looking into it more. Difficult to choose just one but I think the Time for Travel range would be the one I'd go for to help with putting my photobooks together :)

Skylark said...

Wow so many papers I love Once Upon A Time Deco Papers,but many more are fabulous .
I would love to win to help me as I want to do scrapbooking and do one for my brother-in-law as we lost my sister in june & he has lots of photos from holidays ect


frannie_d said...

Hi Jak. Boy! Is this ever a hard decision; there are SO many awesome layouts and designs but I do love "Snow In Love" by Snickerdoodle Designs seeing as winter and Christmas are coming up fast! Such Beautiful layouts!
What a great give-away! Thanks for the chance of winning. I mostly make cards, but have SO many pictures and this looks like a very quick and yet elegant way to save all those memories.

Cathy Spicer said...

Wow! What a great product. I've stopped scrapbooking because it got to be so much work to stay organized. I want to go the digital route, but have yet to find the perfect program. This might just be it. So many great sets on their website, I admit I'm pulled toward the kitty ones! The animal magic masks are SO cool, but if I had to pick one it would be the Kitty and Tweet Pack.

Unknown said...

Hi Jak I absolutly adore the Worth of Memories page it seems to pop right out and looks so elegant. Vee x

Tine said...

Hi Jak. You have created a fab layouts there. Your grandson Jack is a real cutie! Thanks for the opportunity to win this fab programme. As for a fav from the site, I rather like the subtlety of the Delight Papers.
Tine :)

Mary Roberson said...

Hi Jak,

Your layouts may have been quick to complete, but they don't look like it. They look well thought out. There are so many designers and different types of designs on their website-something for all types of scrapbooking styles. I really like the puppy word art. For example, I mean: Puppy Love Word Art and Canine Word Art 2. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Unknown said...

I got to say Memories. I work on genealogy and I have a memory album for my family, and it has old pictures that go back to my great, great, great....etc. I have some clear back to 1700's. So anything to do with the olden days, I love. I don't know how to put 12 x 12 pictures on my computer. I don't know how to scan them and paste them, so I can't put them on my blog :O) I do other's to, but all my albums are 12 x 12 soooo I never put them on my blog. One of these days I might see how well my camera will take a photo of them. I have a picture of the doctor that delivered my Mom standing by an old car.

Pat said...

What a lovely 'freebie' for the lucky winner. My choice would be '21 Artistic Masks' - something so different.

Gylly said...

Eternal Marriage (or was it Eternal Wedding) by Cari Lopez its very difficult to choose just one to be a favourite, they're all quite stunning - but I think as a wedding stationery designer I have to go with that one! I have to agree with Pat, too, what a great prize for the eventual winner and her choice is also brilliant!

Anne said...

What a great freebie Jak you are so kind to offer it. I am just starting out in scrapbooking and would love to win your awwsome prize to help me on my way. It is so hard to choose a favourite from all the things on offer but think that I like Christmas traditions. Anne

chris paul said...

So many to choose from, think I would have to go with Suddenly Love
as we have had 3 weddings in 3years,
our eldest son,and two of our daughters(only 2 more to go) It would be brilliant to do something artistic with the photos.
thanks so much for the chance to win this.

Linda Wescott said...

Forced to pick just one, I'll say Memory Lane part 1. We have lots of family photo's from the late 1800's and I'd love to make an album that could be shared with every member of my family. Thanks for the chance to win such great software. I love the layout's you've made. Hugs lin

chris paul said...

Hi Jak, love your blog, scrapbooking is something I have always wanted to try, but wasn't sure I could afford to buy more as well as cardmaking and not sure if i had enough confidence to try it,
but with 5 children&4 grandchildren i would like to leave them more than a box/ or computer full of pictures,without the story to go with them, it is important as we have no photos of my husband as a child.
I would choose 'Suddenly Love' as we have had 3 weddings in 3 yrs in our own children.
thanks for the chance to win

shirley said...

I like Traditional Christmas as it covers my memories of being a child and can be used for my Grandchildren to make their memory books for the future generations to read.

Lorianna said...

OH WOW!!!!
LOVE them all!!
But the one that coaught my eye?
Is called
Walk in Splender, just LOVE the earthy tones!!
Would love to win sych a great gift
And Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us!!!

Lesley said...

Wow Jak, they're all great! I adore Kara's Wedding but that's just the start of my list.... Thank's for the chance to win the software.

dragonllew said...

Wow so many packs to choose from one of my favourites would have to be Fables & dreams.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Larisa said...

Love the page *Have fun*. The children's theme is always special to me - and I have two grown girls already, but I always think they are the little one yet... )
Hugs. Larisa. xx

Sharon in Arizona said...

Oh my Jak - what a wonderful site!!!! This looks like a great product!!!!! And the choices - I could easily spend the whole day on their site alone. And you asked to pick a favorite????? Very difficult, but A Grand Day Pack or Moments of Every Day would be perfect to start scrapping my two beautiful granddaughters. Thanks for this great tip and offer, Jak. Hugs, sharon :o)

Georgiegirl2012 said...

How can you possibly choose ONE favourite - there are so many gorgeous ones (5006 I believe) but the one I kept coming back to, not that I looked at anywhere near all of them, or even 10% of them, was Baked to Perfection. Would be good for recipes of family favourites with accompanying pics of them being made. Thanks for the chance of winning xxx

Jan M said...

Oh my goodness !!!! I just can;t decide....... My eye was immediately caught by All i Want for Christmas and also the Halloween packs but then I decided to concentrate on the baby category as I am doing a scrapbook for my grandson. But oh boy - even more choice !!!! narrowed it down to the blue ones (for a boy) but still can;t decide between Baby Cakes, The Sweetest Baby and Baby Mine. Roll on pay day :) THANK YOU for introducing us to this gorgeous site xx

chrissie said...

My brain hurts trying to choose just one. However it has got to be "Home for Christmas" just because of the time of year.
Many thanks for a great giveaway
Chrissie xx

Lana Clarke said...

OMG Jak how can I possibly choose lol
I love 'It happened this year' as I think this would be really versatile.
Thank you so much for the chance of winning this fab prize which I know I would love having 3 small children to capture all those wonderful moments.

They all look great Jak but I think I like Cool Hands, Warm Heart the best at the moment - it must be because I am in Christmas Crafting mode. Thanks for the chance to win.
