Thursday Tutorial: To “Group” or Not to “Group”
Another week has passed, so you know what that means: Melissa T. is here to share another Thursday Tutorial with you.
I hope that your week has been as busy as mine, and I am sure that with the warm weather and beautiful skies (for the most part), you have a lot of new pictures that you are ready to place in your digital scrapbook collection. Whether you want to post pictures of kids playing at the park or the flowers springing up in your yard, you are sure to want to play with your MyMemories Suite V3 Software at sometime. Plus, let’s not forget that Easter and Passover both pop up this weekend, so make sure that you have your cameras out and ready for all of those photo ops that tend to spring up when families get together.
Now, since we have just mentioned “Getting Together,” I decided that this week’s tutorial will be about when and how to “Group” objects or photos. “Grouping” is a new concept for me, so I have had to play around with Lisa Jurrens’s PDF in order to create a template for you guys. The first question one should ask when grouping is whether you want to group. Grouping is a great way to create clusters and photo collections that you want to keep together. I honestly hate it when I make a beautiful cluster and have to move each embellishment
individually to recreate the same cluster on a different area of the page. With the MyMemories Suite, you can create a cluster, “group”
it together, copy and paste, or even move the cluster as a whole. Remember that some things are best left alone, while others work together
well as a group. I am sure that you all have downloaded a plethora of freebies by now and are ready to create clusters of your own with
your software. (This would have saved me hours of scrapbooking…if only I had learned of this tutorial earlier!)
So, after you have watched Lisa J.’s video on” To Group or Not to Group: That is the Question,”and have downloaded her PDF for later use in your folder for Directions and Ideas in your “Outside Content” folder on your computer, head on over to My Memories, With Love Studio,or Divine Digital and grab up a new Spring designer kit. You will be making flower cluster, Easter Egg groups, and even Andy Wharhol-esque photo montages of girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes.
I have created my own groupings as an example for you to follow using “In My Pocket“ a Missy’s Bits collaborative with Barbara Ryan. It is a huge kit (21 papers, 52 Embellishments, and 2 full alphabets) and well worth the money. You may find it at My Memories, and it will be compatible with your My Memories Suite Software. If you have not already purchased this #1 ranked digital scrapbooking software, you may use the coupon code found on this page for $10 off Version 3.
This is a great weekend to go and make some memories. Make sure that you take your camera! br />
