My Memories Review and GIVEAWAY!

Scroll down to the end of post for giveaway details!

Have you heard of My Memories?  Maybe I'm just behind the times, but I'm glad that I'm catching up.  It's this digital scrapbooking software that is freaking fantastic.  As I was downloading mine, I browsed through the pages and pages (and pages!) of different layouts and kits (there are 11867 total kits and a freebies page!) and holy cow... I pretty much started bouncing in my seat, waiting for the download to finish.  Okay, so I may be prone to over-enthusiasm, but still... it looked amazing!!  And when my software was ready, my hopes were justified.  This. thing. is. cool!

I made the image above, using all the free stuff that came with the my memories suite software.

But let's say... hypothetically, of course... that you don't have a lot of time to put scrapbooks together for your kids.  We could even say that your first child has a scrapbook done up to the age of 9 months... but she's four years old.  And, according to the scrapbooks, your other two children don't exist... Wait.  What were we talking about?

Oh yeah.  Let's say you don't have a lot of time to create cool scrapbooks for your kids.  Never fear!  Not only is digital scrapbooking quicker, but the My Memories software also includes some "quick page" layouts for you.  Check these out that I whipped up in NO TIME by just dragging pictures and adding text!   
Oh, and they have effects to add to your photos, too.
Cool cool cool.
I think my favorite tool, so far, is the color match tool.  When adding the text, I could just drag the arrow over any color in the template, and my words were perfectly matched to the background. 

Or you can create your own "quick pages" that you can come back to later!  Just add picture! :)

And if that's not enough to convince you, here are just a few of my favorite packages that are available for just a few bucks each.  (I'm thinking I'm going to use the train one for SOMETHING in Brooks's room!)

Oh.  That's notenough for you?  How about this?  Use the code: STMMMS55937 and get a $10 discount off the purchase of the MyMemories Suite Scrapbook software AND a $10 coupon for the MyMemories.comstore!  That's a $20 value, folks!!

  1. Ohh! Ohh! Pick me! Pick me! I am totally a follower of Easy Being Green. And my favorite package, "Digging for Dinosaurs" b/c hey, I just sat thru a 4Yr old version of a 'dinosaur presentation' the other day and kind of have dinosuars an the brain, right now! :)

  2. OOH Man! Not only do I love this, I NEED it! I am a follower. My favorite package from My Memoriesite is "Whooo's your Daddy.

  3. Forgot to add that I posted a link to your website & giveaway on my Facebook.

  4. Okay, I'm officially your Follower! If any site is going to get me to sew, it will be yours! Anyway, I think I've got you beat in that I've done NO scrapbooking of any child. Maybe this would help. So many choices it's boggling my mind, but I'm liking the Zoo Friends package.


I love comments more than I love buying new fabric, and that's saying something. :)
