A few years ago when I was using Photoshop Elements as my software of choice, I went to several crops where Marcy kept showing me all the great aspects of StoryBook Creator Plus. She was so excited and enthusiastic about her pages and progress I could not help but listen to what she had to say. Well, I thought I was "to cool" for such a "simple" program such as StoryBook Creator Plus! But I kept seeing Marcy's progress and how many pages she was completing.
Then, another one of my good friends Sandy Mune, who is a Creative Memories consultant, asked me to teach her how to digital scrapbook. After showing her Photoshop Elements, she was a bit overwhelmed. I asked her why she did not use Creative Memories software since she was a consultant. She said there was no one to show her how to use it. (This was when the software was first released.) I told her that if she bought it, I would learn it and teach her how to use it.
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that we would all be where we are today! Once I figured out how user friendly and productive Storybook Creator Plus was I NEVER went back to Photoshop Elements! This is saying a lot, because at that time I had been digital scrapbooking since 2004 with a wide variety of software programs, before it was popular or mainstream. I used to create all my own elements and started out making pages with "Strips and Triangles". (Only seasoned Creative Memories consultants will probably recognize this ancient term!)
So THANK YOU Sandy and Marcy! There are many other instrumental people on my digital scrapbooking journey that I need to publicly thank but I want to start with these two women. They both attend my Laptop Crops regularly and continue to be a wonderful inspiration to me both personally and professionally. Marcy is one of the few people I know that is completely current on her scrapbooking. She swears it is because she uses all of my templates! Here are a few photos of Marcy and her photo books. Enjoy!
