My Memories Scrapbook Software (Review & Giveaway)

I love scrapbooking! For me, it is relaxing and fun. Plus, I love looking back through the albums and reminiscing with my kids! However, as much as I love scrapbooking, I am about 5 years behind. In fact, I have not scrapbooked a single page for my youngest set of twins! Sad, I know, but I have a feeling that I am not the only one! I even made scrapbooking part of my November Mission of the Month, but sadly, I didn’t make any progress.

You see, I have always been a paper, scissors, glue type of scrapbook girl! I have always admired those who have gone digital, but I just have not had the nerve to try it. Once I find something I like, I tend to stick with it. However, when I was contacted by My Memories to review their digital scrapbooking software, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to try going digital…or at least hybrid! So, I decided to give it a shot!

My Memories Suite v3 software is a complete digital scrapbooking solution that provides a comprehensive powerful set of creative tools no other scrapbook software can offer. With its intuitive workspace and enhanced time-saving features, this application is perfect for a beginner to create a complete album in minutes, or to empower the design pro to build a scrapbook album masterpiece. –from My Memories Website

Check out some of the pages I have created so far:

These are some photos that I took when we visited the aquarium. I just love how the vibrant blues stand out on the black background. I was able to use a pre-loaded photo only template and add my own colors and journaling. Popping in the photos was a breeze!

We took the kids ice skating for the first time this year. We all had a blast. I was so impressed with how well they all did. In this photo one of my 4 years olds was wowing mama on his skates and then after a few trips around the rink, he was in need of a little rest! For this page I used a pre-designed {free} template that already included the embellishments. The template was designed for one photo, but I was able to easily add a second.

I made a few pages to showcase our Truth in the Tinsel ornaments. Again I used one of the simple photo templates and added the colors and text. For the gold page, I used some of the pre-loaded gold & white jeweled paper. I can’t decide which page I like best. Any suggestions? I could add some journaling in the colored squares on the blue version. But, I love the gold. Or, I could just fill all the boxes up with photos of the ornaments.  Hmmm, decisions, decisions! {grins} Luckily My Memories Suite makes it super easy for me to make the adjustments…once I make up my own mind! {grins}

My thoughts: I have LOVED exploring the My Memories Suite! I spent some time playing around on the software and I am quite impressed. It has been so easy to create fun, memorable scrapbook pages! Plus, now that I have had some time to play around with the software, I am completing digital pages in less time that I would be using paper, scissors, and glue! While I don’t have much experience with scrapbook software, I know what I like! And I am having so much fun with My Memories! And, you will have a chance to have some fun with it too! The folks at My Memories have offered to give away the My Memories Suite 3 scrapbook software (valued at $39.97) to one of my readers! On top of that, they have offered a $10 off coupon code to my readers!

    I liked the pack called “Remember.” It looks like it would be great for creating a little family history scrap book–something I have wanted to do f-o-r-e-v-e-r, but have never gotten the time!
