If you click on Design Your Own in Version 3 it has a fancier look and more options for creating standard size albums or custom sized. This make printing your album at home sooooooo much easier than it was a few years ago and also allows for special sizes when needed.
Once you create or open an album you will be on the main screen and see you now have a tool bar on the left and new options on the top and right. The left toolbar lets you slide not only photos but embellishments, shapes, word art and more right onto the page! Makes it so easy and FAST to make a page. On the right you will have your options for the different elements like adding shadows or mats, changing fonts. Something that makes My Memories Suites different than a lot of scrapbooking programs is that you can add video, music and narration to your albums. This feature is great for making videos to show at Open House or to create lesson videos. I have made a morning routine video with our morning songs and even recorded my students reading their writing to show parents.
There are many cool features to each element that really each need a video :) So for our walk though we will end with the options for sharing your album. You can print your album from your home printer; export your album pages as jpegs, pngs or PDF files; have your album professionally printed as an album or calendar; create an interactive album that can be on your computer or burned to DVD; even make a file to play on your iPod. I mainly use the Export feature when create things to share online or for TeachersPayTeachers. I love that I can have things professionally done but I don't have to. There are so many possibilities!
