Guys, this is the first giveaway I've ever hosted. Eep!
So, I like to scrapbook. I see it as a good way to preserve memories. It's family history, people! And I like that it gives me a better way to tell a story than a regular photo album would.
I started out with regular ol' scrapbooking, then looked into digital scrapbooking a bit. Digital scrapbooking is pretty awesome, because there's no mess. And I don't have to worry about gluing something down and regretting it. Drag and drop! But I've never been able to afford digital scrapbooking software.
So! Imagine my excitement when I was contacted to do a giveaway for MyMemories.com. "Heck, yes!" I said (in my head, not out loud). They let me download their My Memories Suite software so I could try it out, tell y'all about it, and then give a free copy to one of you lucky readers.
I've never used any fancy-pants scrapbooking or photo editing software. So it took me a little while to figure out what I was doing with My Memories Suite. But once I got the hang of it, it was fun and easy to use. Check out this page I made:
My Memories Suite comes with lots of templates that you can use, or you can start from a blank page. It also comes with several backgrounds and embellishments to use in your projects. (I made the page up there just with elements that came with the software.) Then, if you're interested, you can visit MyMemories.com to download more backgrounds and embellishments--a few are free, and the rest are reasonably priced.
The fine people at My Memories also told me that you can use this My Memories Suite to make things like cards and calendars. Fun, right?
