When I first started playing with this softwear there was a bit of a learning curve to figure out where to find things and what the different symbols on the buttons mean but I had a lot of fun exploring it and if you've used any photo editing or scrapbooking softwear before, it's mostly intuitive. In fact after messing around for just a bit I was able to come up with this:
Pretty good for the small amount of time I put into it, considering I'm a crazy perfectionist...
There are several kits that come included in the softwear but to do a lot of things you will need to download some others from the MyMemories online store (or create your own). Before you're totally put off by that, you should know that I was very impressed with the number of free kits that are available - dozens and dozens of them! There are also lots and lots that you can buy but they are all quite reasonable. Most are only a couple of bucks, some are more and others are less than $1. Plus when you purchase the softwear you get a $10 coupon code emailed to you that you can use for some of your favourite new kits.
Some of the kits look very "digital", if you know what I mean, which, as a classic scrapbooker/ cardmaker, really isn't my style. There are quite a number if kits that do look more "scrapbooky" though, and I will probably use those more. I like the tips and tricks that pop up when you use the softwear and that you can use their premade templates or design your own. I also like that it can be used for things OTHER than just scrapbook pages. You can make cards, tags, calendars etc etc as well. I have planty left to explore. All in all it's a fun and useful softwear suite and I'm certain to get plenty of use out of it.
