My Memories Review and Give Away!!!

A while back I was given the unique opportunity to review My Memories Digital Scrapbooking software.

Before I tell you how great it is, I have to issue a huge thank you to Liz for this awesome opportunity, and for being patient with me as family, work and other issues have kept me from posting this for quite some time.

But I'm here now ready to tell you all about it! :)

After I downloaded the software to computer, I loved that there were tons of FREE features!  The site is easy enough to use for beginning scrapbookers but would be a great resource for devoted digital scrapbooking crafters as well.

I tried out many different free kits. With just having got married in May I spent a lot of time looking at Wedding themes. I also peeked at baby kits for hopefully, future reference ;)  I enjoyed the fact that the free kits are still of great quality for those of us that want to create a great scrapbook without pushing our budget.  Although, the pieces that do cost are fairly inexpensive!

The My Memories Site says it perfectly,

"With over 1,500 papers, over 1,000 page elements, and over 30 album templates (including 10 new for v3), MyMemories Suite lets you hit the ground running with your very own scrapbook or photo album in a matter of minutes. It’s easy-to-use and affordable—and compatible with both Windows and Mac computers. Don’t put off your important memories any longer, add MyMemories Suite to your shopping cart now.
You can make a beautiful scrapbook an interactive memory experience for anyone who sees it. Use simple one-click options to enhance your scrapbooks, with music, narration, video, and even the Internet. Go beyond pictures by showing off video of the birthday party, or record a narration to capture the memories that pictures alone cannot. With My Memories Suite you simply don't look at a scrapbook-you experience it!"

If you can't wait any longer, here's some GREAT news!  My Memories is providing all of my readers with a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software and a $10 coupon for the store! All you have to do is use this code: STMMMS20835.
