It's Giveaway day!
I was contacted by the nice folks at www.MyMemories.com to host a great giveaway and review their My Memories Suite Scrapbook software.
If you are a follower of my blog, you know that I love to take pictures and my 2 kids are my favorite subjects. My family is far away and I love to make gifts for them using pictures. There is nothing that makes my mom happier than to have something with pictures of her grand children. I also like to save memories from all the activities we do as a family and everything interesting that happens in my children's lives. I tried traditional scrapbooking and it is not for me, all the cutting, the stickers, the glue, the writing...it takes too much time that I don't have.
This is a digital scrapbook software. It is very easy to learn how to use it. I installed it on my laptop and started using it right away. With My Memory Suite you will be able to create all kinds of projects using pictures; books, cards, calendars, posters, slideshow with music, videos, gifts tags. One of the thing I love about this software is that each page you create can become a jpg file. You can make really nice pages using your pictures and print them as a picture of any size you like on your own printer no need to order through any websites. If you choose to use a website to print your pages that is also something that you can do. You would upload those pages just like you do with your regular pictures. It is VERY EASY.
My Memories Suite Scrapbook software comes with templates pages, several different background papers and embellishments. You can change the shape of your pictures, frame them in any color you want, add text to them, add a shadow, special effects, you name it!! You can make a lot of things without having to buy anything extra but if you want to add to what comes with the software you can download more templates or embellishments on the www.MyMemories.com website. There, you will find a lot of fun stuff! They even have a section with FREE downloads! You can find all kinds of monograms and templates for everything; Christmas, Sports, Kids, School, Seasons etc.
I made a few things to share with you examples of what you can do with this software.
1. Christmas gifts tags: This template comes with the software. It adds a fun personal touch to your gifts, I know my kids will love this!!!
2. An invitation; again everything I used to create this file came with the software. It took 5 minutes to make it. (please make a note for my birthday :))
3. I made these for my nieces. I would make one for each player on their teams and offer this to the coach at the end of the season. I emailed them to my nieces and they loved them! The older one is now using this as her Facebook profile picture! Score for aunt Caro!
I downloaded the letters and numbers that are in circles for $1.99.
4. I had to make one page running related!! For this one I used a template that I downloaded from the website. You can see the pictures have round corners and a shadow added to them, one of them is in a circle shape. These features come with My Memories Suite Scrapbook software. I also added a colored shadow to some of the words.
5. This could be used as a blog header. One of the great thing on the www.MyMemories.com website is the tutorials videos. There you can learn to do all kinds of projects, one is on how to make a custom header for your blog.
All the pages that I made were all uploaded on my blog as JPEG files, I did not have to scan anything! I highly recommend this software. It is easy to use, I will use it to create the project for my son's STAR of The WEEK poster. Older kids can use this for school projects or to create their own gifts for family and friends.
