I have used American Greetings CreataCard for over eight years now. The first version was just like this craft software. I had to buy the addition upgrade package, then call back and get another code when our computer went down. So, when American Greeting sent me an offer to upgrade to the next version, the first thing I asked was whether or not I had to do the same thing. I am now using the Platinum 6 version and it is really wonderful. (Just received the Platinum 7 also) I save a ton of money printing cards for everyone for every occasion. It is very easy to use. I love being able to print cards with our own family photos on them. It also has a very easy to use workshop where you can edit your pictures: remove red-eye, brighten, add special effects, etc. I have made several of my son's teachers very nice certificates to show appreciation and they all just loved them. I can do the envelopes, labels, add-a-photo projects, frames, stationery, Christmas ornaments and lots more with it. I would not waste my money on the Crafts software even though it does have some nice features. Being frustrated when you finally find the perfect card and realize that you can't have that card unless you pay more money, just wasn't worth it to me. I would recommend just going with the Creatacard software- the later versions.
