My Memories is a website devoted to digital scrapbooking. They sell both the software, and then various scrap booking kits and photo books. They also have the most amazing section of free downloadable digital scrap booking kits – absolutely free – for anyone to use.
You will need to create a free account on the My Memories website in order to get the free kits. However, no purchase is necessary. These Album and Photobook templates are intended for installation in the My Memories Suite software, which they make and sell. However, the General download will still contain all of the digital paper and page element files and template pages in a flat jpeg format so that you can recreate the template. The General use installer will let you use all their beautiful elements in programs like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, etc. Do note that the layered pre-built pages are not available in the general download, only in the version for the MyMemories Suite.
There are many free scrap-booking kits to choose from: 355 to be exact. I am a big fan of Steampunk esthetic so this Steampunk Ruin Quick Page Free is appealing to me. It is a very small freebie though with only one page element.
I also like this Happy To Be Me-Kit, which is far more extensive than the quick page above. It includes 5 digital papers, 22 page elements, and 62 monogram characters. The colour pallet of rose pink, powder blue, and darker blue is really pretty.
My Memories makes it easy to find other work by your favourite scrapbook template designers. Just scroll to the bottom and you will see other paid and free kits they have designed.
If you want to pick up the My Memories Suite software for full compatibility, now is not a bad time. I found coupon code STMMMS3764, which gives you $10 off the software. All prices are in USD. I have no idea when that coupon expires, so give us a shout if it stops working for some reason.
I thought this was a fun little freebie opportunity for anyone who loves digital scrap-booking. While the full benefits of each kit require the suite, you can still use most all the elements with whatever software you currently use for your projects. This is a great way to expand your current graphics collection.
P.S. Their website has been really slow for me. It might require an extra dose of patience to get your freebies.
