My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software Review & GIVEAWAY

***COMMENTS ARE CLOSED***

Pin It



I never win anything.

Well. That's not entirely true. Once, when I was in the 6th grade the Publix by my house was giving away a scooter. As in, with a motor and everything! It was pink with Cherry 7up written on the side because 7up was introducing it's new cherry flavor. And I had to have that scooter.

This was back in the day when they just left stacks of blank entry slips by a cardboard box. So. I went in everyday and grabbed a stack. Filled those suckers out by the hundreds and lo and behold I won that scooter. A couple years later someone stole it out from under our carport. Karma.

But then, the other day, I was contacted by the folks at My Memories to do a review of their digital scrapbooking software and I kinda felt like I had won that scooter all over again. Someone wanted me to review their product AND host a giveaway so one of you could win, too! So exciting.

And then I thought, but what if I don't like it?!

Listen. I am not a scrapbooker. I will never cut, glue, staple, embellish or bind a scrapbook. Ever. I still have one of those large 30 gallon storage bins full of my First Born's pics and memorabilia that I intended to scrapbook. He will be 9 in August. So, you see, I have come to terms with it. And I'm betting, even if you are a scrapbooker, you could make a similar confession.

From the first time I opened the My Memories Suite I didn't have a problem understanding why they call it, an award winning software that's fun and easy to use, because that's exactly what it is.

My Memories Suite is not only easy to learn but they have these wonderful, short and sweet tutorials on their YouTube channel to make it even easier.

Not only can you create an entire scrapbook in a day, you can even have it professionally printed, but you can also create cards, gifts, invites and printables. And what completely blows my mind is that you can turn your work into a video; add voice overs, narration or music and then you can make it DVD OR ipod ready! Crazy right?! And I'm actually pretty excited about the 'Check Album' feature which I wish I'd had when I designed my business cards. Perhaps then I wouldn't have wound up with 500 business cards and 2 car magnets with my email address misspelled. You don't even have to edit your pictures in a separate software in order to crop or remove red-eye - it does it all!

I am amazed at what this crazy cheap digital scrapbooking software can do. Drop shadows, change opacity, editing photos. It can do almost everything a much more expensive program can do and yet it costs only $39.97!!

Let me show you what I mean. I had been commissioned to do a birthday party invite which I would normally do in Photoshop. This time I thought it might be fun to do the invite the way I usually do and then see if I could do something similar with the My Memories Digital Scrapbooking software.


The first image is the 5 x 7 invite I did in Photoshop, the second using the My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software. My Photoshop software retails for just under $1,000. The My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software, just 39.97. AND (apart from the rabbit) I did both invites using free downloads from the Free Kits section on the My Memories website. Do you see $960.00 worth of difference between the two? Yeah. Me neither.

So are you like, sign me up already, or what??
