mymemories digital scrapbooking suite software review & giveaway -- CLOSED


I'm not crafty. In college, I took up scrapbooking as a hobby. It took over our bistro table in our makeshift dining room in our tiny apartment -- and only became more chaotic from there. Eventually I tossed everything into a bag and threw it in a closet. It just wasn't worth the frustration and so I went back to printing photos at the pharmacy and shoving them into photo albums.

I've read about MyMemories a lot around the blog world and I've constantly been in awe of the beautiful designs people are able to make. I remembered my college-era scrapbooking nightmare and convinced myself that I'd never be able to recreate those beautiful designs on my own. When MyMemories invited little old me to try their software for a review, I was over the moon but still a little nervous. In case you're wondering, their digital scrapbooking software is way more user friendly than cutting and pasting scraps of paper. Way more user friendly.


I started to get the hang of the MyMemories software right away. What I loved is that there are so many options! You can make anything you set your mind to, including cards, calendars, bookmarks, scrapbooks and way more. You're able to select the dimensions of your project so that anything is possible, even something as small as gift tags. One of the features I love the most is the many ways you're able to share your finished book or product. You can print it, burn it to a disc, turn it into a slideshow or e-mail it to friends and family. The slide show feature will come in handy when I'm ready to share my scrapbook of Ethan's first year with relatives who are dispersed around the country.

MyMemories offers a slew of premade layouts that you just slide your pictures into if you need a little help making your project come alive. They also offer you the option to create your own pages from a blank canvas, right down to the last detail, if you have an eye for that kind of thing. I literally meant right down to the last detail, be it the pattern of the tack holding the photograph to the page or the texture of your background paper.


After making some great scrapbooking pages to document Ethan's first year of life, I thought I'd try out some other projects. I started a calendar with Ethan's photos and I also made a bookmark with Ethan's picture on it.


I can't say enough how much I enjoy the creativity I'm able to express when I log into the MyMemories software. Whether you're creative enough to wing it from a blank canvas (I wish!) or need a little help getting started (like me!), the MyMemories software allows you to create personalized masterpieces featuring your special memories. This software would be perfect for party invitations and other little crafts that come with having a small child. Digital scrapbooking is a dream come true for a mom like me who wants to put together special keepsakes for my children to have to look back on. MyMemories makes this possible, easy and fun!
