My Memories Review and Giveaway

My mom is one of the most talented scrapbookers I know.  Her pages are just incredible, and she's made scrapbooks for many important occasions in our family's life.  She's currently working on my wedding album.  I've always loved her scrapbooks, but I've never had the patience to scrapbook myself.  It's too time-consuming and detail oriented for me.  I prefer to write on the back of my pictures, stick them in chronological order in my photo albums, and call it good.  Of course, I do have a scrapbook of sorts here on my blog.  A lot of people are getting into what's called Digital Scrapbooking, I love using the computer and this is definitely something I could get into.  I was thrilled when I was recently given the opportunity to review an awesome Digital Scrapbooking software and share it with you! 

My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software is "a complete digital scrapbooking solution that provides a powerful set of creative tools and multiple sharing options that no other software can offer. Its intuitive workspace and enhanced time-saving features are perfect for a beginner to build an entire album in minutes, or to empower the design pro to build a scrapbook album masterpiece."

It took about 40 minutes for the software to download from the website to my computer (not bad considering the incredible amount of things you can do with this software).  Then it was time to play!

I created this using a pre-made photo layout.  Then I added my own pictures, embellishments, and word art.
I found the software very easy to navigate and use.  You can select different backgrounds, templates, and layouts for each page in your album.  Then just click to add pictures, text, word art, shapes, narration, objects and more!  You can even link from your album to a video, website, or music just by adding a hot spot!  Then you can share your albums online, like a video by burning them to a DVD, or even like a greeting card.

My Memories goes beyond just this software.  You can purchase additional scrap booking kits and templates from their website (saving you a lot of time versus making them yourself!)

I'm just learning how to design attractive pages, and I know what I've created is just the tip of the iceberg.  Here are some of the pages I've made.

I think this page is really fun!  I used a photo layout, but the rest I added on my own!
This page was premade, I downloaded it from MyMemories and added my own pictures.  The program even let me make my pictures sepia.

Your turn!  The creative people at My Memories are offering a discounted price to all my readers.  The normal cost of this software is just $39.97 (I think that is a fantastic price for everything you get), but if you use the discount code STMMMS29294, you'll get $10 off your purchase!  This code is valid until June 28th.

You can also win a copy of My Memories Suite v2.0!  This contest will end on 6/28 at 11:59 p.m. central time. I will choose the winner using I will contact the winner via email, and they will have 48 hours to respond with your contact information or I will then choose a new winner. Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you in your entry.

I received a copy of My Memories Suite v2.0 to do this review.  The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine.


  1. I'm with you Melissa I love the looks of scrapbooking but it totally makes me crazy to think of how to do it.

    From My memories I love the camping pages. We camp alot and take alot of pictures and make alot of memories so that would be fun. All the others look great too!!

    Thanks for the giveaway. The discount is great too!

  2. I thought I was following you, but that must have been in reader, so I am now following you the correct way.

  3. This is really cool! I used to scrapbook all the time, but it's time consuming and expensive. I've done 2 books online, and am now going back and scanning my kids pictures to do these kinds of books. Thanks for doing a giveaway.
