{ My Memories Suite Review and Giveaway }

 I got to try out My Memories Suite Version 2.0. It's a digital scrapbooking software that helps you build scrapbook pages and albums. You can use various templates that come with the program or you can design your own pages from scratch. 

Here is a page I created few minutes after installing the software.
I tried a little bit of everything on this page. I am a collector of digital kits and elements and I wanted to make sure that I am able to use everything that I have and what comes with the program. My Memories Suite comes with numerous templates to choose from and you can easily create beautiful pages in minutes.
Even though everything on the page can be altered, I love to create my own pages from scratch.

For this page I used All Boy Peek-A-Boo Overlays by Albums to Remember, downloaded from My Memories Suite for FREE. Every Friday they offer a freebie kit on their Facebook page. The "a, b,c" letters are Dirty Denim Monograms by K Studio, free, download from the website.
I added a Skinny Date Label and Block Label by Jennifer Pebbles.
Everything else on the page came from My Memories Suite program: stars, brads, dotted circle, and notebook edge. I added white mats to two of my photos. 
When adding a title all your installed font shows up and I love that.

What do you think? 

I was able to save this page as JPEG, but you can create photo albums, greeting cards, calendars, videos that you can burn to a DVD, and iPod/iPhone ready movie!
This would be perfect for Project Life or December Daily. My Memories  provides an online printing service that can print and bound photo albums in different sizes.

I did not have any problems using the program. I was able to look up everything that I needed in the PDF User Guide. Their blog has different video tutorials to help you. I love that I can use all my digital kits that I have with this program, and you can use the kits you purchase from My Memories store in other programs.
What I didn't like is that I couldn't edit the embellishments. For example, I could not change the color or texture of the embellishment. I would love to see more embellishments added to the software. I feel that the ones that are available are outdated and plain.

  1. I love your layout. Thanks for putting so much detail about what you can do with the software. I love my Memories and already have a few of the paper kits. Think I like something different every time I look on there. I want to start making a Heritage album and I lvoe the Today Yesterday Tomorrow Template. I can see that with this software it would be possible to make one album and share it with the whole family. Thanks for the chance to win.

  2. I have never done digital before and have seen lots of reviews on the blogs I follow. I really like the holiday papers..Halloween, Christmas and fall. Thanks for the review and a chance to win.


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading all your wonderful comments.
