Several weeks ago My Memories Suite contacted me to try their digital scrapbooking software and to try it out for a couple of weeks. At first I was a bit reluctant because I am NOT that technical. I decided to investigate a bit before I said yes. I was able to find that My Memories Suite is rated #1 by Amazon and Top Ten Reviews. My interest was peeked. I then went to youtube.com and found this video:
Ok I was hooked. I wanted to try it.
Downloading the software was so easy. It took just a couple of minutes. Once it was loaded I was ready to go. There are more videos on youtube that show you step by step but I really wanted to see if a non techie could figure this out because I have had photoshop elements for months and I can't seem to do anything with it.
Once I opened the software there was a choice- create you own page or use one of the designer templates. I decided to create my own page. It took me just a couple of minutes to create my first page. The tool bar is so easily marked with Background Paper, Text, Shape, Embellishments etc. that I simply built the page with the preloaded papers and embellishments. I was so happy to see that in the embellishments there were buttons--buttons are my favorite embellie!
For my first attempt at digital scrapbooking here is my layout.
Now I have to admit that my first attempt is not the greatest layout I have ever made BUT I literally made this layout in 20 minutes. It was so EASY to use and navigate within the software. I have to say I was hooked! I wanted to explore the software even more. Over the next couple of days I am going to show you my progression using the software. I literally spent a total of 2 hours learning the software and browsing their store where there are TONS of free paper kits and embellishments to add to your software. I think you will be amazed when I reveal my final projects. The are simply amazing and again it took me just 2 hours to be able to make professional looking digital scrapbook pages.
My Review: This is a must have product if you ever wanted to try digital scrapbooking. I had tried Photoshop but I just couldn't understand it but with this software you can try digital scrapbooking and it is a snap! I made scrapbook pages and cards using this software and I loved it! It was so fun to put together a card in literally 5 minutes and print it out on my home printer. I was so excited to see that in their shop there were tons of freebies. I downloaded a couple and loved the designer paper collections. They were awesome. ( I will be showing those papers later this week.) I can see why this software program is the #1 selling program on Amazon.
Now the wonderful people at My Memories also gave me ONE software package to give away to ONE lucky winner from my blog. They also gave me a promotional code to display on my blog where you will be able to save $10 off the purchase of My Memories Suite Software. That brings the price down to only $29.95--that is AWESOME! Plus you will receive a gift card for $10 to use in their store. How awesome is that!
