My Memories Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!
THE WINNER IS: AIMEE!!
I've never been into digital scrapbooking before. When I scrapbook, I like to get my hands dirty. I love spreading all of my materials out around me and getting ink and glue on my fingers. But when I was approached by www.mymemories.com to check out their digital software and write a review, I figured I'd give digital scrapbooking another try, and I'm so glad I did.
My Memories Suite is such a wonderful program. It is so easy to use. I've only used one other digital scrapbook software program before, but the My Memories Suite is so much better. Everything is laid out for you step by step. You just choose your elements -- embellishments and photos -- and off you go! There are tons of premade layouts for you to place your photos in, or you can start from scratch and let your creativity take you away. It is also very easy to add digital embellishments from other websites. If it is saved on your computer, it can easily be imported into the software.
One more fact about this software that I absolutely love is the fact that you can add anything you want to your pages as long as you can scan it into your computer. This can include items such as movie tickets, concert tickets, brochures, maps and all kinds of other items. Once they are scanned into your computer you can add them to your project, then re-size them, add shadows, etc. This is great for preserving memories and adding personal touches to your pages.
Here's a few layouts I made with this software.
