My Memories Scrap Software Review and Giveaway

I love the idea of scrapbooking - beautiful paper, stickers, fun embellishments, and more. I've collected supplies over the years, but haven't really ever been able to get into scrapbooking and stick with it. A couple of years ago, my friend mentioned a digital scrapbooking site that she just loved. Finally, a couple of weeks ago, I went looking for this site because I had decided digital scrapbooking might be the way for me to go. Unfortunately, the site was no longer up and running, so I put digital scrapbooking on the back burner again.

That's why I was so excited when I was contacted by My Memories to do a review of their digital scrapbooking software. I was really thrilled when I discovered I get to give away a copy of this software to one of you!

I've been exploring the software for the past week and a half and I know I've only scratched the surface of what can be done with My Memories, but here are a few of my favorite things so far.
  • The software is very simple to use. It comes with a number of preloaded templates, papers, and embellishments and you can use these to put albums together right away. You can use their templates or create your own page from scratch.
  • There are lots of great free and inexpensive page kits and paper kits at their web store.
  • You can find kits to fit practically any event, activity, or theme. I especially love this A Bushel and a Peck pack.
  • The software makes it easy to create a wide variety of items other than scrapbook pages. I made an invitation and some Christmas word art to print out (see below). I am thinking it will work well for photo cards for Christmas. There are also customizable calendar templates to create. Some of the embellishments would even make cute cupcake toppers!
  • Lots of additional ideas can be found at the My Memories blog and Facebook page. It's fun to see what others are creating with the software.
The only difficulty I experienced with the software is that is runs a bit slow on my older (7+ years) computer.

OK. Let me show you a couple of things I made and get to the giveaway!

This is a super simple invitation made using the Pretty Ballerina pack. I am thinking these could be printed as 4x6 photos and mailed out for a cute and frugal birthday party invite.

This is some printable word art for Christmas made with Away in a Manger Word Art and Christmas Snow paper.

I hope you are all as excited as I am about this great software and are ready for the giveaway details. This giveaway will remain open until next Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 10:00 p.m. EST.
