Creative Memories Story Book Creator Plus Review

Dave and Sandy 2009 - Page 015

I made this photo layout from the Creative Memories Story Book Creator Plus Software.  It was funny, my husband saw it on my site and asked how in the world did I do that?  I was very pleased with how it turned out. This software can make story books, pages for your scrapbook that you can print out, desktop wallpaper for your computer screen, greeting cards, photo gifts etc.

This program was not hard to use.  Basically you pick what you want to work on, rather a storybook or single page etc. and then you pick your template. It comes loaded (besides, plain, black or white with 2 predesigned packages. You can purchase more if you would like.  The one above was from an additional package  called Beautifully Blended Predesigned pages for 12×12. You load your pictures in (which is really fast…that impressed me) and they show up on the right hand side. Drag and drop into the different slots.  The basics.

Now…you can crop, add embellishments and do all kinds of fancy things.  I have to admit that I didn’t have the time to really dive into learning all of that, but it doesn’t look like it would be too hard to do.

Step 1 Chose your what you want to do on left & then pick your templates

Your package of pages will open on the right. Pick which one you want to start with.

I used to sell Creative Memories and LOVE scrapbooking, but have not done any of the digital scrapbooking until Creative Memories came to Type A Mom Conference. They gave us this software and I was more than thrilled to try it out. The layout that my picture was done in is actually one that is not in this software package but can be ordered separately.

Oh….and just so you know how easy this really is….my first page (above) that I ever did I won an award on the Creative Memories site for Best use of Color. Isn’t that cool?

Stay tuned…I will be learning how to digitally organize photos too!!

The one negative I just learned was that it is not mac friendly! I am getting a mac this week so that really bummed me out! But they are hoping by next fall it should be.

Full Disclosure: Creative Memories gave me this software and the additional package that created this page without charge. I was not paid to do this post.

    Enjoyed reading your review! I just received a 12×18 calendar in the mail that I created using the Storybook Creator Plus 3.0 Software & the free templates. It’s awesome!! Highly recommend you give it a try! They’re 20% off until Nov. 15.

    Sandy,

    I love your first page. Have you discovered that CM released Storybook software, SBC Studio, for MACs last fall? Although I am not a MAC user, I have been told that when I see what the MAC version will do that I can’t on my PC, that I will be ready to start shopping for a new computer. :)

    Happy Scrapping,
    Cathy

    Thanks Cathy. No I didn’t know it was out for mac yet.

    20 page Storybooks are 20%off this month.

    I am asumming that you have a direct contact at the home office or a consultant. If not, I will be glad to help you. Even though I am not Mac savvy, as a Unit Leader, I can find someone for you who is.
