I used my MDS for another Christmas gift. I made memory gifts for the grandchildren. When you open the program up for an 8 1/2 X 11 scrapbook page, option #5 has a template for 12 square pictures. I just looked through my pictures and picked out 12 per page. I chose pictures to include grandparents, cousins and aunts and uncles as well as some pictures of fun memories, like getting to sit in the General Lee.
I made 3 pages but that is probably way too many. With younger children I would probably only put out 5 or 6 pairs. With my 5 and 7 year old grandchildren last night we used 10 pairs and it seemed like a good amount. I enjoyed it about as much as they did. I even made a match now and then. Of course, I let a few matches go by so they could win them.
I also personalized the backs of the card. I changed all the photo boxes to text boxes and put the family name on the back along with a "stamped" image from the many stamp sets available on MDS. Since they are exact on the programs I just printed the game titles on the back of the pictures and they matched up perfectly. I laminated them and cut them out and it was so quick and easy! Gotta love that. I used the same design from the backs to make a larger game title piece to cover the box. I looked around for the perfect box and found that the smallest stamp case fit the game perfectly. I like that it snaps closed securely so the game pieces are safe inside. Of course, who knows how safe they will be in the hands of the 2 year old! Have I ever told you how much I love this program???
