Generations Pocket Book

Tah dah! It's our big day to share what's kept us one minute from completely losing it.

Do you remember our first introduction to pocket books? These versatile little books have so much going for them. First of all, they're simple. Notice that there's not a lot of text. Simple to finish...simple to pick up and want to read it! Because the books are bound using a couple of metal book rings, you don't have to sweat creating the PERFECT book. Wanna add a page, or make a change? No problem!

The only thing that we could find wrong with our fun little project was that it took time to make. All those pictures needed to be individually formatted, printed, cut out and glued on.

Well, things just got a WHOLE lot easier!
Stories by Me is excited to announce QuickMix Pocket Books for your MemoryMix software.

Our first Pocket Book project is called Generations Through the Years. If you can fill out a Pedigree Chart and drag and drop pictures on a page, YOU can make this book!

We've done all the work by designing and formatting the pages. All you do is add your pictures, add your family names, add some dazzle {only if you want to} and print one copy...or (and this is the BEST part!) a hundred copies. You own the project!

We were blown away at how fast we created this book! What used to take the better part of a day is now completed in about an hour. {Keep in mind that it does help to have ALL of your family pictures already digitized and ready to use!}

I am literally holding in one hand the stories of more than 60 family members! The pages document the relationships of six generations of family. The pockets contain mini stories and extra pictures. The MemoryMixer software will also let me add video and a voice recording to my story. The pocket is the perfect size for stashing the CD or DVD once I finish.
We shared this project with Megan Gilliland at Fox 45 WBFF Baltimore last Friday. The story is airing Wednesday morning. We'll share the link as soon as we get it. In honor of our moment in the spotlight, we're offering FREE SHIPPING on ALL OF OUR PRODUCTS through the end of May. MemoryMixer is also sharing the love! They will give away a copy of of our Knowing Them QuickMix with every purchase of their MemoryMixer Software. This is a limited time offer, so be sure to check it out sooner than later!

Here are a few more pages to inspire...

I love Genealogy. Though I am a personal injury lawyer, I love to check into family and learn about their history.

This is great. To be able to have such a nice keepsake that can be made without hours of labor and without requiring a lot of talent should be a real winner!

Im simply inspired. This type of project is the best thing to inherit. I would have loved to have one of my own. I guess there's no better time to start than now to make one! Getting jewelry for an inheritance seems so small now...
