With the My Memories software, I tried the design your own page function to create this very simple page that I thought would make a great gift to print and frame and give to our friends that we do an annual wine tour with. I did it with bold contrasting colors, much like I would do with traditional cut and paste scrapbooking.
I found My Memories software very easy to use. It is available in Windows and Mac format. I used the windows version. It is a huge file with a lot of graphics so it does take a bit to upload. My computer was set to hibernate after 15 minutes of inactivity. I changed the setting to 5 hours and clicked upload and went to bed. Not sure how long it took but it was ready to go when I woke up the next morning!
There are also numerous ready made templates within the software and many more free online. If you've depleted all the free stuff and looking for something new, there's also entire "kits" you can purchase at a very reasonable price. You can also join a monthly club for $5.99 that gives you 5 new kits each month. Use can use any font available on your computer. Albums come in all the standard sizes and you can create custom up to 36"X36". I guess if you wanted a poster size you could use that option.
I used this ready made template for Snow/Christmas. We don't get a lot of snow at Christmas in the Carolina's, but we did a few years back. I combined a few Christmas's and snow event's and put this together in under 10 minutes. I spent most of the time looking for my photos since all I had to do was add the photos and change some text. You can even edit your photos with in the software. Add it to your page, then crop, rotate, get rid of red eye. I found that AWESOME! Often, your photos need to be edited before you bring them to your software.
The cost of the printed hard back books are comparable to traditional scrapbooking albums, but you don't have to buy page protectors, supplies, etc. And I'm guessing you could get 5-10 albums in the space of one traditional album! Any you don't have to lift weights to be able to carry them around!
They have so many custom gift idea options as well! Playing cards, puzzles, mouse pads, iphone skins, etc. And of course, cards, stationary and invitations. The website is awesome!
