I was recently approached to review My Memories Suite, a digital scrapbooking program. Sadly, I had never hear of it until I had been approached. So naturally, I was all about it! I have never done a review of a product before, and I figured this is something I enjoy doing, so I figured it would be completely worth-my-while!
Now, I have heard of other digital software similar to this, but I have never used anything digital for any of my scrapbooking. My Memories Suite appealed to me, because unlike some of the other programs, this one pretty much said "simplicity."
I checked out the My Memories website and there are a large number of design templates a person can purchase to download and use with the software. What I liked about that was, you only purchase and download the design templates that you want. You don't have to become overwhelmed with the amount of stuff you have to look through on software that has already has "everything" on it. It is also nice, because, as far as I can tell, you don't have to worry about buying new software in the next year or so that has "new" stuff. You get to choose the "new" stuff you want and don't have to worry about spending your entire crafting budget on it.
While I was able to review the software, I did a bit of playing around and "scrapbooked" some older digital family photos that we had taken. I must say, even without purchasing newer design templates, there is quite a bit of fun stuff that comes with the software. Most of the scrapbooks I have made are 12x12 and 8 1/2x11. This software offers both sizes as well as the landscape _x__. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to print anything off, but I now know what my husband's side of the family will be getting as gifts in the years to come. My Memories Suite will allow me to make family albums without the hastle of cutting and pasting photos into 3 separate albums. I will be able to design each page and then have them printed 3 times.
Honestly, I am uber excited to utilize this software to get family albums made and to get caught up on all of my other albums that I never seem to have time to work on. Oh the life of a full-time wife, mommy, and nurse!
Just to give you an idea of what you can do with the software, here are a few things that I made. Seriously, it is just too much fun! I was even able to make this entire album in only minutes! The best part is that you can also make it into a slideshow if you want to share it via the web. I didn't do that, but I just may do that at a later time.
One lucky girl (or guy) is going to be able to download this fabulous software for free. That is a $40 value...FOR FREE!!!
