My memories suite giveaway!

I was recently approached by the folks over at "my memories" to review their digital scrapbooking software.  My memories is a comprehensive scrapbooking software that allows you to create albums, calendars, photocards and more.  I received a copy of the software in order to review it, and was given a 2nd one to give away to one of you lucky readers (a 40$ value)!  I am also making a 10$ off coupon for the software available at the end of my post (yeah, you hafta read the whole thing, hee hee.)

Here is my honest review of the product:

1. the good:

-I have been searching for a digital scrapbooking kit, and this one is not only quite easy to use, it is very affordable as well.  The basic package is only 40$, and there are weekly deals for add-on kits, as well as many kits for 0.99$ and as many freebies.

-Being the most technologically un-savvy person ever, I did run into some trouble when I couldn't access the free downloads that I was attempting to add-on.  I emailed customer support and my email was addressed within 15 minutes.  That is a very big plus for me - I loved that I could continue working on my projects right away!

-you can share your albums, add narration to the pages (how cool is that!), animation, and other very cool features.

2. the bad:

-I do wish that more stuff was included in the basic software.  I feel like to get the looks I wanted, I had to venture outside of it.  That being said, there are so many digital paper and embellishment add-ons available that I had no trouble finding things that I loved.... like this mother owl designer pack - how cute!

-A little caveat: the program is quite large.  I couldn't properly install it on my laptop, and had to install it on my husband's computer.  That was a bit of a disappointment, so make sure you have enough space for it!

3. the projects:

-Are you asking yourself why I would need a digital scapbooking software?  Sometimes, even this stamp-obsessed-gal doesn't feel like getting "inky."  And sometimes, it's just quicker to whip up something digital and add some paper-crafting goodness to it :)

I made a little banner for my hubs and hung it on our headboard:

I created the patterned paper panels with a few quick runs through my die-cutter and gave center-stage to the cute subway-style print that I found for free on the "my memories" site.

I also added a little journaling tag to a digital scrap page I made about Thomas:

I also found the layout in the free section, and simply popped Thomas' picture in the middle and pushed print. So quick!  I added a little tag for journaling and embellished with a button.  I love mixing a little handmade with the digital scrap page - so fun!

Without further ado, I have a coupon for 10$ off the "my memories" scrapbook software: STMMMS27385.   This coupon code is for everyone - enjoy!
