I was contacted by My Memories to share a review with my readers and (the best part) to host a giveaway.
My Memories is a site that is devoted to digital scrapbooking. But because I've never scrapbooked in my life, I honestly thought I'd download the software and think, "Oh, that'd be neat for a scrapbooker."
Um no. It's so much more than that! EEK!!
Look at this Valentine's Day card I'll be mailing out to friends and family! I'm having it printed on card stock. I'll fold it in half, leaving the inside blank to write a sweet little "thinking of you" message.
This scrapbook software is so amazing and it's so user friendly. Here's a screenshot of the software right before I saved this card.
On the right side, (if you squint) you'll see the control panel. It contains all the little things you'll need to go crazy. I used two different background papers and then added the cute little pink ribbon & birdy embellishments. Then I added text and a photo of the cutest little boy I've ever seen. Done!
For my son's school v-day cards, I decided to use this idea that I found on Pinterest. I think it will be a fun project that my little man can help with, and hopefully the kids will actually use the crayons. (Plus, it's ONE less piece of candy they'll eat on that day.)
Rather than handwriting out the phrase, "Happy Valentine's Day for "crayon" out loud!" like the creator did above, I decided to see if I could whip up something using my My Memories Suite software.
Here's how it turned out. Feel free to email me if you'd like to use this.
Even though it doesn't look like it here, this is actually a 5 x 5 square. (That's another great thing about the software--you can pick the exact size of your pages and/or album.) I think that after I print them on card stock I'll cut around the outside, making it a circle.
Seriously, the possibilities are endless. And don't worry. If you don't want to start "blank" you don't have to. There are TONS of pre-made albums and pages for you to use too if you'd like.
And, although this digital scrapbook software comes with a lot of designs, embellishments and everything else under the sun, there's also a page on their site devoted to free digital scrapbooking kits that designers make specifically for their software and there's no limit to how much of the free stuff you can add to your software. Holla!
Okay, so you get the point. Just know that if you want more information on the software, this page on their site has some great information.
Now to the super fun part! My Memories is giving away its scrapbooking software to one of my blog readers! And because the software is downloaded from their site, there's no wait for a disk to come in the mail! YAY!
