My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software and Giveaway
I am so excited to share this with you all! When I was given the opportunity to try out and review this digital scrapbook software from MyMemories.com, I jumped at the chance. The truth is I love the idea of scrapbooking and have even gone as far as collecting the necessary materials and sitting down to start a book. But that is usually about as far as I get. The main reason I don't get around to it isn't the job itself but the work of pulling out all the materials and putting them away. In a perfect world I would have a craft room the size of Texas with a separate work station for each of my craft projects so that I could jump from area to area whenever I had a free moment. Unfortunately that room just doesn't exist in my house, so when you add the time for prep and clean up to the actual page creating, I can never seem to find a block of time that big.
This is where the brilliance of digital scrapbooking comes in. The Memory Suite Scrapbook Software allows me to work on my scrapbook in my time, whenever and wherever I am at. If I have 10 spare minutes between one obligation and the next I can open up my computer and get back to work where I last left off. And when I am ready to be done it is as simple as hitting the save button and I can move right on with my life. No more running to the craft store looking for the paper that is just the right color or the embellishments that will add that special something to my almost perfect page. With this software, all of those things are right at my fingertips!
Not only that but My Memories Suite allows me a wider range of options for sharing my creations. I can print at home, have my albums professionally printed or turned into a custom calendar, or even use a range of multimedia outputs to give my work a wider audience.
I have had so much fun playing with this software. Want to see a little something I made to honor my son's first day of Kindergarten? There are lots of designer templates to choose from but I decided to start from scratch and build my own. I think it's pretty darn cute!
