My Memories Digital Scrapbook Software Review and Giveaway!
I used to scrapbook a long time ago. It has been years since I have done it. One of the reasons I gave up was that it was time-consuming. It was also very expensive. I often miss it because it is one thing to have pictures on my blog but it is a whole other thing creating unique pages and making a physical scrapbook to hold those memories.
But now I can actually make scrapbook pictures on my computer with the new My Memories digital scrapbook software. The My Memories Suite v3 has several designs options. You can make scrapbooks, cards, calendars and much more especially if you are a creative type of person.
Once you download the software, it is easy to use. If I can use it, anyone can. The interface is easy to follow and it basically walks you through everything. If you need a tutorial, you can go the My Memories website and get some very handy tips and ideas. You can also join the Design Club for a fee and get tons of benefits!
The My Memories software comes with ready made templates so you can easily add any picture you want. I went on and found the "Out of the Box" template and added some of our Jamaica vacation photos. It was so easy and my page came out really nice. I was also given the option of having the software add the pictures. I decided to do it manually because all my pictures are saved willy-nilly in my computer. But it is nice to have the option of the software adding them.
The templates are also easily changed. They are not static. So I was able to move around the blocks on my page and change the colors and add text. Most of the templates that I played with were the same way. They also have seasonal templates which is a nice feature.
I love that the templates are easy to use. If you are a hardcore scrapbooker (not sure if that is a word) you can create your designs from scratch which is a nice option because you can do your own thing. You can even add audio and music to your creation.
If you want more templates, you can go to the My Memories website and download more. There are several free kits available and other kits can be purchased at reasonable prices. The good thing is once you download a template, you can use it multiple times.
I love my new software. I truly wish I had more time to play with it. It is easy to use and fun to use as well. It is such a great new way to scrapbook. I love it!
