Quickmix & Templates so cool!

I know I've shared my love of Quickmixes and Templates but I have to do it again because they are so wonderful. Basically they are pre-made pages that we can change around if we want. All the embellishments and backgrounds used to create the pages come with the Quickmix or Template pack, so not only do we get several pre-made pages we get all the embellies and papers to create more layouts if we want.

I love that the photo size can be changed if it is too small or too big, an extra photo can be added or deleted to suite my needs. Embellishments can be deleted or added or replaced with another. With designing I rarely have time to spend on pages so Quickmixes/Templates are often purchased when I go shopping. They are so versatile and pages come together so quickly!

What's the difference between Quickmixes and Templates? Quickmixes are available for Memory Mixer users and Templates are available for My Memories Suite. I used to purchase Quickpages to get my layouts done quickly but now I only use Quickpages/Templates along with one of the software programs. Quickmixes and Templates can only be used in Memory Mixer or My Memories Suite

How is a Quickmix/Template different from a Quickpage?

As mentioned Quickmixes and Templates are created in layers and can be edited. A Quickpage is a flattened file. In a Quickpage the page is pre-done and in one file with an opening for your photo. Nothing on a Quickpage can be changed. You can add items on top of the page, but cannot delete anything, change photo sizes and all you get is the page you buy, not the papers and embellishments used to create the page.

Happy creating!

I just released a set created with "Construct It", now available at Memory Mixer. It should be releasing this week at My Memories Suite as well.
