Share the Memories Freebie - photobox

NOTE: All of the Friday Freebies will now be MyMemories Suite Compatible.  What does that mean??? It means that you can now load the freebies directly into your MyMemories Suite Software, and then completely customize them with any paper and embellishments that you have.  If you don't have the software, don't' worry, you can still download the sample project and the elements, but you will not be able to customize your project.

Today's freebie is a photobox!  These make great gifts!  You can add pictures of families, individuals, or even special things into the frames!!!  

All you have to do is download and add photos, print, fold at the fold lines, and glue!! It's as easy as that!

p.s. Don't forget to use my code (STMMMS72517) if you buy the software! It will save you $10! :-)


Photobox Tutorial
Using MyMemories Software to Customize your Flower Card
  1. Download template file and install it into your software
  2. Using MyMemories Suite, choose Create Album From Designer Template and find your project
  3. Now you can add pictures, print and enjoy the provided template, or customize it with your own papers and embellishments.

You can right-click on the white guide and lock it in place to keep it from moving while you are working. Make sure this is the top layer of your project before printing.

Instead of adding the paper as a background paper, you can add it as an embellishment so that you can move the paper around.  This is especially useful when using papers with stripes or circles, so you can decide which part of the paper you want to use.

Once it is added as an embellishment, you can now select the paper and move it into the position you want it.

Just SAVE and PRINT on cardstock!
