My Memories Suite Review & Giveaway!

Before my first child was born, I had grand plans to make beautiful, elaborate scrapbooks for my children. Then, reality hit and I find I do well to actually move the pictures from the camera to the computer. {Please tell me I'm not the only one!} 

I was recently contacted by Liz, from My Memories Suite, about reviewing their digital scrapbooking software. After browsing their website, I very excitedly accepted their offer. I have spent some time playing around with the software and have been really happy with it!

I think my favorite thing about My Memories Suite is how easy it is to use! I was able to create a digital scrapbook of some of family's main highlights from last year (9 pages with photos, embellishments, and captions) in just a couple of hours. It was my first time using the program, so there was definitely some learning to be done, but once I clicked around a little bit I got the hang of it pretty quickly. I was really pleased with how my little digital scrapbook turned out.

The My Memories Suite software comes with several ready-made templates, background papers, embellishments, and layouts--which I really like! For the more creative, you can definitely create a huge variety of layouts. And, for those of you who want something more straightfoward and simple, there are plain photo layouts you can choose without any embellishments. In addition to the things included with the software, there are several FREE templates you can download from the website, as well as templates you can purchase starting at just $0.99.

For me during this season of life, I think My Memories Suite is a great way to save our memories (I have big plans for using the software to make a yearly scrapbook for each child!). It's much more affordable than buying all the scrapbooking supplies to make a traditional scrapbook, and there's no mess to drag out and clean up again (and no little pieces of paper for little hands to drop all over my house!).

In addition to digital scrapbooks (which can be shared online), the software can be used to create calendars, printed photo books, and DVD's. The possibilities are endless!

The My Memories Suite software is $39.97, and can be purchased as a download or a CD to install. If you use the exclusive promo-code STMMMS78748 at check-out, you'll get $10 off, making for an even better deal.

The giveaway!
Even better than $10 off is getting to try this great software for free! My Memories Suite has offered to give away one copy of this software to one of y'all!
