Make Your Own Christmas Card with MMS

Our Christmas Card ~ Christmas Traditions kit
I made that!!!  2 months ago, I would have told you I am not creative or patient enough to scrapbook.  My Memories Suite has proven me wrong! 

Diva Kit
I won the program in a giveaway and have made about 8 pages so far.  MMS hosts a "Speed Scrap" every Sunday evening on Facebook and I've been trying to participate each week.  It's a great opportunity to build pages and learn new techniques. 

MMS offers many free page elements and mini-kits in their shop and on Facebook, as well as special offers from their designers.  Printing a photo book will cost approx. $1/page, so it's also much cheaper than traditional scrapbookings.  It's really a great value for a fun, easy to use program. MMS recently released version 3 and have been posting tutorials on the new features on their blog.  Remember to use code: STMMMS87580 to receive $10 off the software and get a $10 store credit!

To make a Christmas card, I started with a blank, landscape page in MMS.  After designing the page, export it as a .jpeg file to your computer.  Upload the .jpeg to a photo site, like Snapfish & Shutterfly and use it there on a blank card or postcard. Snapfish has a sale using code CYBER50 to get 50% off (expires 12/3/11).  I like that I was able to design the postcard exactly how I wanted it and not have to settle for designs I didn't really love.  I'd love to see how you are using MMS in ways other than for digital scrap pages!
