Video Tutorial: How to Make Printable Cupcake Toppers Using My Memories Suite

It's finally here my friends...the video tutorial I have been promising for a very long time.

How to Make Printable Cupcake Toppers Using My Memories Suite Software

Before you watch this tutorial, make sure you have a copy of My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software installed on your computer. You can download it here. It looks like Version 3 is available, although my tutorial is using Version 2. From what I can tell, the basic design functions are all the same so you should be able to navigate through the software no matter which version you are using. 

This first video is the main tutorial. I walk you through all the basic steps of creating your topper, as well as introduce you to some of the options you have when it comes to digital clipart, papers and fonts. I reference a few of my favorite websites to purchase digital clip arts, papers and fonts and you can find a list of these websites at the bottom of this post. 

This video is about 17 minutes long so pour yourself a cup of coffee before watching it :-)



I realized after I made this video that it might be helpful to show you guys how to create an 8.5x11 sheet of  12 toppers. This makes it SUPER easy for you to print and share a jpeg file. I learned how to do this after LOTS of trial and error. This video is much shorter, but just as helpful.



Even though these tutorials only took me a night to shoot, I feel like I have been prepping for them for a year (maybe because I have. Ha!). But now that they are done, I can't wait to show everyone just how easy it is to create your own printables with this software. I realize other questions might arise as you begin to make your toppers, so please don't hesitate to contact me at adailydoseofdavis{at}gmail{dot}com if you need any help.

Enjoy friends...these were definitely a labor of love :-)

Here is a list of some of my favorite sites to purchase digital clipart, papers and font.

Etsy (searching digital clipart and/or papers)
Designer Digitals
