GIVEAWAY: MyMemories Digital Scrapbooking Software November 22, 2011 Giveaways 11 Comments 2715 I was recently contacted by a company called MyMemories, which makes a digital scrapbooking software. They asked me to review the software and then generously offered a copy to giveaway to a lucky reader! Well the short review is this: I LOVE IT. Read on for the longer version 🙂 I’m not much of a scrapbooker anymore (although I still have 12 pairs of fancy edged scissors from back in the day). I guess once I got a digital camera I stopped printing photos. To be honest, I was a little worried that I was too out of practice to work with the software. But, I’d heard good things about digital scrapbooking from friends on mine, so I decided to give it a go. The downloading process was easy, and the MyMemories Suite installation went smoothly. I’ll admit that after I installed the software, I was hesitant to get started. I’m sort of gun-shy when it comes to learning new things, and it takes me a little while to dive in. But I recently started selling some of my baby knits in a new shop and was asked to make a little “About Me” sign. It was the perfect project to start with! Normally I use Paint Shop Pro, and it’s pretty good for editing photos. But for layouts or picture/text combos, it’s actually quite slow and usually leaves me frustrated. I was hoping to get a better result with the MyMemories software. What do you think? I was shocked at how quickly I was able to make up this design. The software is really intuitive, at least in my opinion. I love the drop down menus on the right hand side that made it easier to find things. Pretty self explanatory, right? I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of included gadgets, although you can purchase additional papers and designs online. You can choose from pre-made designs with papers and photo placements or design your own from scratch (which is what I did, above). As you can see, it’s more than a scrapbooking software. I’m seeing holiday cards in our future! One of the best features is that you can export anything you do as a jpeg, so you can share it online, with a friend via email, or print it anyway you like.

I must ask- how were you able to post your creation to your blog post? I tried and tried and couldn’t figure out how to do it so I left it off my giveaway post in the end 🙁 Reply rachaelevans November 22, 2011 Angela- I’m not at my computer, but I think there is a share tab at the top which has an option to export as a jpeg. After that I just uploaded it like I would any picture. Reply Kelli November 22, 2011 I love the winter frost template! It would be great to capture this winter season, especially if we get a good snowfall or for our yearly trip to the mountains! I am a huge scrap booker but have never used a digital scrap booking software! I would love to win and try it out! Thanks for hosting Reply Sandy Walters November 22, 2011 What a great product! Thank you for such a complete review! Reply K Jerread November 22, 2011 I love the Christmas Traditions kit. Hope I win. Reply K Jerread November 22, 2011 I “liked” My Memories on Face Book, and got to download a free kit. Love it. Reply K Jerread November 22, 2011 I signed up for the My Memories blog. Looks great. Reply Jenn@eatcakefordinner November 25, 2011 Great giveaway! I LOVE the fall fun pack! Reply Jennifer Ferrell November 26, 2011 Is the Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio made bt this company? It looks very similar. Are the designs compatible? I’m loving all the instant page kits. All the Halloween ones are so cute! I’d love to be able to just drop a picture in and print. Thanks for the chance to win it! Kindest regards, Jennifer Reply rachaelevans November 29, 2011 Jennifer, I’m not quite sure…I’m not too familiar with the digital scrapbooking world to be honest. Thanks for entering! Reply melinda richardson November 27, 2011 Hi, I did the following: Liked on FB followed on twitter signed up for newsletter Im about to go look for your designs.
