My Memories Review and Giveaway!

Have I got a fun giveaway for you!! Last week the lovely folks at My Memories contacted me and asked if you and I would be interested in a fun little giveaway. I checked out their site and decided yes! I decided for you, by the way. Hope that's ok! My Memories Suite is fun, easy to use digital scrapbooking software. But here's the best part: it's NOT just for scrapbooking. Oh sure, they have a bunch of photo layouts to choose from so all you have to do is click away to add photos and text and backgrounds and embellishments (they have several free sets, and others for pretty reasonable prices, by the way). But you can open up a totally blank album and create just whatever you'd like: invitations, printables, gift tags, videos, and more! It's completely up to you and your imagination. I've been playing around with this for a few days to get the hang of it, and it's nice and easy (much easier than pootling around in PowerPoint like I've been doing).

If I ever get my act together and put my tutorials into printable pdf form, their photo layouts will make adding a nice, professional cover as easy as pie. Mmmm.....pie....I had some chocolate chip cake at lunch but pie sounds really good right now....apple pie....ahem....sorry....

See? Simple. This was a more basic layout, but they have some that are fancier, and some that are simpler than this. Then I decided to try and make up a simple invitation. I used a few of the elements that come with the software and came up with this:

I don't have any parties coming up, so I had to make a fake invitation. Recognize the movie?

Then I got excited for Christmas, so I decided to make a few gift tags. I had downloaded a scrap pack from a different site a bit ago, but never used it. I was curious if it would work seamlessly with this software and it sure did! So if you've got other digi-scrap elements you can use them with this software too.

And finally, I decided to do a full-page graphic more in the style of scrapbooking. I bought one of the sets that My Memories offers to do this one. I love it lots (I heard the song on the radio the other day and thought this might be cute):


I'm adding this one to my Printables page (that I just added at the top--since I do printables now, lol). I've got ideas overflowing for new blog headers for the holidays, and who knows what else. Place cards for Thanksgiving? Cute little print calendars for next year? Who knows! I love options :)

My Memories wants to give one of you their delightful software to have some fun with. To enter - all you have to do is check out their software kits or layouts and let me know one that you like in the comments. That's it! Sorry to make you go somewhere else and come back - you know I normally don't - but dems was da guidelines I was given. This giveaway is open worldwide. Please leave me some way to contact you if you're a no-reply blogger or your email isn't linked to your profile. I'll leave this one open until 11:59 p.m. EDT on Friday, September 9th, 2011 and announce the winner the next dayish. Good luck!

And if you simply can't wait for the giveaway to end and want to score this software immediately, you can use coupon code STMMMS45056 to receive $10 off the software and get $10 to spend at the My Memories digital store. Sweet!

I'm off to have some more fun with this :)
