Review by Judith Kurek:
1 – What kind of projects can you create with CraftArtist Platinum?
Scrapbook pages, cards, photobooks, invites, giftbags and more! The Digikits make it very easy to pull together a greeting card fast.
2 – Do you feel the directions are clear and easy to follow even for people who have never used this type of software before?
The directions are clear and there are samples and online how to videos. I watched the video for how to make a card. It explained it well. The book that comes with the software is thorough but it’s easy just to dive right in and get started.
3 – What is your favorite aspect? (easy to add embellishments, ease of use, etc?)
I like the embellishments, frames, letters that are right there on the side to drag into your project. It makes it easy to put together a scrapbook page or card quickly. There is a lot to choose from.
4 – What did you think of the CraftArtist website? (extras, how-to videos, etc.)
As I mentioned, I viewed the how to video on making a card. There are quite a few videos plus extra downloads you can add to your softwware including free templates.
5 – Overall, how would you rate the CraftArtist Platinum software?
It would be good for crafters who like to do a lot of different types of projects. There is also the option to share your creations on Daisy Trail. There are 5 discs so it takes some time to load but there is so much to it and a lot to learn. I like that it is easy to use and there are many projects to choose from. Overall, a good value for the price.
