Digital Scrapbooking Workshop

Last month, Ruthie Matthews, did a presentation for us on using Creative Memories Story Book Creator Plus software to create a digital scrapbook. These are a great way to preserve the work you've done on your Family History and a share it with relatives.

The Software is available for purchase on her website, you can download the software or order it on CD. There are also free Story Book Creator templates that you can download from her website and others that are available for purchase.

Ruthie has also agreed to help us learn to use the software with a hands on workshop on August 14th at a location to be determined.

Based on interest we'll either have an all day workshop (10-3) or half day workshop (10-12) and cost will be determined based on length of workshop. Proceeds go to purchase materials for the Genealogy Section at Haggard Library.

    What you'll need for the Workshop:
  • A laptop
  • Story Book Creator Plus Software and templates (if you haven't installed the software before the workshop, we'll help you do that as well)
  • Digital Pictures

If you are interested please email Barbara Coakley at bcoakley@crww.com by June 30th.
