Tutorial: My Memories Suite (Digital Scrapbook) - Using Outside Content

A follow up post from the Giveaway Contest I posted last month. (Winner will be announced eight hours from now. So those who wishes to participate and take the CHANCE to win the software, you still have a few hours to do so.)
This is THE most asked question of all. "Can I use OUTSIDE CONTENT in My Memories Suite software?"
The answer is: "Yes, definitely!" It’s a few quick and simple techniques, and you’ll be creating amazing pages like a pro in no time at all!

Here is the comprehensive clip for 'My Memories Suite' tutorial. The main objective of this tutorial is to help MMS (My Memories Suite) users to get the most out of this amazing software. The topic is about using outside content.  Hence, it is about incorporating other sources to create your own digital scrapbook e.g. background papers, embellishments.





One of the best things about MyMemories Suite software is it’s ability to use content you find on most any digital scrapbooking website to create great projects for you and your family. When you find DIGITAL BACKGROUND PAPERS that you either buy or download as freebies from websites other than MyMemories.com, it’s easy to pull them into your project to create just the look you want without being limited to only content found on the MyMemories website!

If you can't access/view the clip nor can't hear the audio, please read below:
