My Memories review and giveaway
Edited to add: The winner of the software giveaway is: LUANNE.
Congrats, and I'll be contacting you on how to proceed with the prize. Thank you ladies for joining in. I do think this is a good program for those wanting to start scrapbooking. So definitely consider getting it. I saw many others hosting giveaways too lately - Hope you others can win one of those!
Look for a FANTASTIC giveaway at the end of my review!!!
I was contacted by My Memories Suite to review their Digital Scrapbooking Software.
Now, I am not a digital scrapbooker, or a scrapbooker really at all.
But I'm checking into all this as I want to start one for my granddaughter. So I decided to try it out because I want to make digital memory books of special events for my little Dahlia.
Who knows what could happen :)
The downloading was easy and after it was ready, I went back and downloaded several freebie quick pages and things too. And there are tons of tutorials. That's always helpful for me!
They are videos--which are right up my alley! I decided to just play around, and wow, it's very easy.
Now I have gone back and watched a couple quick tutorials on printing, and I also emailed asking a question which was promptly answered. So I am thrilled so far!
I opened the program with NO idea of what I was going to make and just started. First I made a 4 page scrapbook. I chose a photo book for those first baby pictures and went from there. I added embellishments, text, and so quick - I had these pages. I loved how easy it all was. And then I proceeded to
print one page off as a piece to use on a card - Now that is truly right up my alley!!
Sorry I couldn't get these to load up to show off, but if you go to the My Memories blog you can see how lovely they are, and they print up just a nicely as you see there!
