My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software Review & Giveaway!

UPDATE: Contest has ended, Winner has been chosen and notified!  Congratulations to Amanda!

I was approached a while back about doing a review of My Memories Digital Scrap-booking Software, I hesitated since I don't normally do reviews for products other than those I sell.  I thought to myself, "Before I do this I need to find out more about digital scrapbooking and what My Memories has to offer".  I love playing around with graphics on my computer but I am completely untrained and everything I create is in Publisher or Paint, needless to say I did not even know that such a thing as digital scrapbooking existed, let alone how to use it.  I have tried my hand in the past with paper scrapbooking, but found it to be very expensive and very time consuming.  I think I still have paper scrapbooking materials packed away somewhere, but like many busy Mom's out there, I just don't have the time or space to commit to scrapbooking the old fashioned way.

So when the offer from My Memories Suite came, I was intrigued to say the least.....I could save time, still play with graphics on my computer and save money!  I decided to jump in with both feet so to speak and activated my promo code so I could download the software and give it a try.  The first thing I noticed was that I was able to instantly download the software, it didn't take much time and was a breeze to get started.  Like I said earlier, everything I know about playing around with graphics on the computer has been self taught hands on learning, I decided that creating with My Memories Scrapbooking Software would be no different!

I decided to really put this software to the test and see what it could creating cards and I even put both my 13 year old and my 8 year old in front of the computer and had them create something!  I had to give my 8 year old a little direction, but I am embarrassed to say that my 13 year old picked it up even faster than I did (as she does with most things computer related).
I could go on and on about this software, but I think this video showcases the scrapbook software quite nicely!  Here’s what’s on the video – 
  • Software Screen Tour – finding your papers and embellishments.
  • website tour (and description of different types of products on the site) 
  • Beginning information on album creation 
  • Introduction to SOME of the tools (and references to the other video tutorials that are available)

If you watched the video you know a little bit more about the software, but thought you might want to see what my girls and I created!
This was my second creation - showing off my business!

What do you think - if an 8 year old can create pages, imagine what you could do with this software!
