Much as I used to say I’d never get into digital scrapbooking, well, never say never!
I bought Creative Memories StoryBook Creator Plus and, oh my god, I am forever sold on it! It is so easy to use. Honestly - it’s logical and intuitive (if that isn’t a contradiction in terms!) and incredibly versatile. It’s like they took some of the best features of Photoshop and the other popular apps and merged them into a far more accessible and user-friendly format. CM’s pre-designed templates let you simply drop in some pics and, voila, you’ve got a great looking page. Or, you can use your own graphics and create a page from scratch. The price is reasonable and the add-on templates from CM won’t break the bank either. And, believe it or not, CM also has tons of free layout templates on their website that you can download!
Say what you like about Creative Memories - they may be slow on the uptake, but once they decide to do something, they do it better than anyone else!
