My Memories Software Review and GIVEAWAY!

Have you ever wished you could get into digital scrapbooking, but aren't sure where to start? Or, you're just plain overwhelmed after hearing you'll need expensive programs or have to scour the internet for digital scrapbooking kits?

Well, I've got good news for you! I was recently introduced to My Memories, an affordable and powerful digital scrapbooking software.

In just minutes (yes!), I was able to utilize the pre-installed templates and quick pages and come up with these pages:




I simply placed my photos in the above pages. For the page below, I tweaked (customized) a bit. I was able to change the colors, add frames and shadows to the photos, and add a few swirly embellishments:


But don't feel like you'll be blocked in by a template or quick page! The My Memories Suite also allows you to build your page from scratch, so you can let every bit of your creativity shine!

I am very impressed with My Memories scrapbook software. I have previously used a photo editing program that is very expensive and has a very tough learning curve. My Memories' interface is easy to use and fairly self-explanatory (but they've got some great tutorials if you need them)!

Also, some things that took me hours to figure out in my editing program (like customizing drop shadows, frames, etc), are simple click and pick in My Memories! Impressive!

I also love that everything is so organized in the program!!! If you want an embellishment, click embellishment...and then be offered subcategories, like buttons, brads, flowers, etc). For me that was huge! I have spent hours trying to organize some of my digi scrap material that I've downloaded in the past and it was great to have things already organized for me!

And you can customize just about anything! A few elements, like specific word art, may not be able to be changed in certain templates, but almost everything can be tweaked to fit your style! I love that, too!!

My Memories makes it easy to add to your collection, too! You can buy kits directly through them and they will install to your program. You can also join their Design Club, for 5 kits a month, plus other great discounts!




My Memories is very affordable, but you can get $10 off (plus a $10 gift certificate to be used at the store) when you type STMMMS7975 into the promo code box at checkout! What better way to showcase your holiday pictures!!

And, for you!! My Memories is giving away a copy of their amazing digital scrapbook software to one of my readers!!
