Review and Giveaway: MyMemories Suite Software

I would firstly like to introduce you to today's guest reviewer - Annie - who is a wonderful friend of mine who is way more crafty than I am, so when the opportunity to review MyMemories Suite came up, she was the first person I thought of... Annie is the never-stay-at-home mom of J, a wonderfully active toddler and a fellow transplant to the Charleston area...  I was so pleased that she was able to review the MyMemories Suite and I hope she'll come back and guest review or share some of her crafting ideas with us in the future!

What is MyMemories Software Suite?
MyMemories Suite v3 software is a complete digital scrapbooking solution that provides a comprehensive powerful set of creative tools no other scrapbook software can offer. With its intuitive workspace and enhanced time-saving features, this application is perfect for a beginner to create a complete album in minutes, or to empower the design pro to build a scrapbook album masterpiece.

My Memories Suite provides a single platform where you can create graphically from scratch, import graphics created in other applications, perform photo-editing functions, and add journaling without ever leaving the software! Plus, you can add in video, music, narration and web links with a simple click of the mouse. No exporting, no up linking, and no headaches. And you can archive all those graphics, video and music in one convenient place. And when it comes time to share your digital scrapbook creation with others, they won’t need to invest in the same software (or computer operating system) to see it. In this way, My Memories Suite empowers your creativity by taking what you create in other applications to a variety of higher-level output.
Annie's Review:

We recently had our son's 18 month pictures taken, so I thought this would be a perfect time to try out My Memories Suite! I had some computer issues with our laptop (our version of Vista doesn't like QuickTime), so I had to wait for my dear hubby to help me access it on his old laptop. Once I was up and running, I had a great time making my digital scrapbook! I started out with a pre-made template. There are some templates pre-loaded into the software, with lots of options to purchase more online. The pre-loaded templates were very easy to use, but the selection was slim for my taste. I do like that you can choose the size, shape, etc of your pages, and the layout (calendar, scrapbook, slide show, etc). Here are some screen shots of pages from my book.

Next, I tried to tackle creating my own book from scratch. There are so many options to add shapes, create word art, add backgrounds, etc. This would be perfect for a person who had a good deal of time to devote to scrapbooking, and who has more artistic ability than I do! Seeing as how I was also entertaining said 18 month old, this feature was too involved for me at the time. I had fun playing with one page, but wasn't able to complete much, as it requires more attention and time. Perfect for the scrapbooking queen, but tough with an active toddler.

Isn't J a cutie?  I can't wait to see Annie's completed scrapbook and what she does next with the MyMemories software!  There are so many other ways that she can use the software - making custom facebook headers, crafting and more - check out these projects suggestions:

I'm jealous now that I didn't keep this review for myself... because Annie was able to come up with some amazing things in a short time, even with J's help!  I'm hoping that she'll let me play around with her laptop some time!

Does this sound like a program you could use?  At just $39.95, it's a great price for software of this sort, but you can also enter this code to save $10 off your purchase: STMMMS82373
