I'm excited to do my very first blog giveaway!
I receive emails all of the time from companies and individuals asking me to review and giveaway their products. I don't believe in promoting or giving away a product that I don't have a personal interest in or a use for. I love scrapbooking (although I haven't done as much as I would have liked since my kids have been born) so this was a no-brainer to say yes to!
First of all, I think that digital scrap booking is much easier than traditional scrapbooking because you don't have to worry about printing your photos or remembering to buy that specific embellishment in that particular colour to match the page that you half finished 6 months ago. At least that's the way my scrapbooking goes.
My Memories has a very easy to use digital scrap booking software called My Memories Suite 3. It's user friendly and very easy to navigate around the software. There are already made templates you can choose from and then all you have to do is click and drag your photos to where you want them. If you don't like something in a template you can change, move or delete it or even create your own template.
The software is also formatted for use with both a PC and a Mac. I'm a Mac user so that was a must! It also comes with a TON of themed kits for Christmas, birthdays and the everyday kind of things. You can also purchase kits or there are free kits you can download.
Here's a little bit of what I created:
I wish I had heard of My Memories Suite a month or two ago because you could easily use one of the templates, export it as a JPEG file, send it to a store to have printed, and then mail it out as a Christmas card! Or, think of all the birthday party invitations you could do!
This one was a pre-made template and all I did was add in the Merry Christmas and a photo. The tag portion already had a text box in it.
I love these pictures of Kallie! I think she was around 6 or 7 months old here.
I made this template myself. I found a background I liked, a lace embellishment, some swirls and added a quote and I was done. How easy is that?
I also made this template. Once again, I found a background, swirls, ric rac, and a quote. Even if you're not that great with computers, this software is so easy to make your own templates with!
Here I took a pre-made template, deleted some items, added some items and voila. My finished product!
