{Review} My Memories Suite software & giveaway

I have been scrapbooking since my oldest son was just 18 months old. He's now 15 and four inches taller than me. In the last few years, as blogging has taken on a bigger roll in my life, my  paper scrapbooking has fallen by the wayside. I was already behind, but now I'm even more so.

In my very small bedroom I have two dressers and two white metal closet-like shelves hanging above them. One dresser holds all my clothes. The other - all my scrapbooking supplies. I have tons of papers, stickers, die cut machines, adhesives, tools, and, most important, photos. On the shelves I have albums and more items stored. Needless to say, it takes up a lot of room

This is one reason I was thrilled to try out My Memories Suite.

My Memories Suite is a digital scrapbooking software that makes it extremely easy to put together layouts. It comes with a number of preloaded layouts, but you can also build your layouts from scratch. I actually prefer doing my layouts that way, however, the pre-made layouts really do save a lot of time. And time is hard to come by these days.

I have been considering going to a digital scrapbooking for some time, but didn't know which scrapbook software to use. I have finally found it. Not only is the software extremely affordable at just $39.97, but it's also very easy to use. I created the layout above called "Sheep" from scratch. I started with a blank page and added in a background, photos, text, title, and embellishments and did it all within about 20 minutes. That is my very first layout using the program. I also just created the layout below as well - again from scratch - in only about 10 minutes. And yes, both are very much done in the same style I have used paper scrapbooking. I'm go very simple and use the photos and lots of text to tell the story.

I can choose which size to create. The first one was a traditional 12x12 size, but the one above is 8-1/2x11 size. I was also able to convert them to jpegs to make sharing even easier. So far I really haven't found anything I don't like about My Memories Suite software.

There are a bunch of free kits on their website you can add to your software. There are also a large number you can buy. Still all very affordable. I love that I don't have to be online to use the program. Less distraction for me that way!


My Memories Suite retails for $39.97. However, if you use this code - STMMMS40499 - when you place your order, you will receive $10 off your purchase plus a $10 coupon code for the My Memories Suite store.  This is an affiliate link.

  3. I would so LOVE to win this! I looked around and would like the Christmas Traditions to scrapbook our Christmas pictures.

    This looks like a really great program! I'm behind on my scrapbooking, and my supplies have migrated to the garage to make room for the homeschooling supplies. This program would allow me to continue scrapping...
