My Memories Suite Software Review and Giveaway!

 What? A Giveaway? What blog is this? But no!  A couple weeks ago I was approached to review and giveaway my very own copy of My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software. I initially decided to pass on it, because I do a million different crafts, but I don't scrapbook. So I sat on the email a few days until I realized that my darling daughter had just celebrated her first birthday and it might be fun to play with her pictures just a little bit.  I was leery, because my last attempt at any kind of paper scrapbooking ended in a truly hideous framed collage of messy, 3rd grade level art.

I downloaded my copy of the software (which I was given for free in order to review it properly!) and then kinda pushed it out of my mind. (There are other big things going on in my life right now, which I really should mention over here, but I digress.)  Anyway, tonight I finally sat down to play with the software a bit. It comes with a couple of different premade templates, and you can change the order of the pages or even remove complete pages at this point. (They are really tiny though, which kinda sucks, sorry!) After that the first page of your book opens up and you can add pictures or text at that point. You can, of course, format the text in many ways, and edit the pictures as well. You can add embellishments like rickrack or speech bubbles and move the photos around as well. Once you get the hang of the software, there are additional backgrounds and things you can add. You can add sound and video and make it into a presentation (I'm imagining this running at a graduation party, for example!) There are a few minor things that I would change (the size of the pictures in that first screen, for example,) but I think that a real scrapbooker would be able to make amazing things with it.

So the nice people over at My Memories have given me a coupon code that will give you $10 off the price of the software, should you want to purchase your very own copy. Simply visit this link, check out the software, and enter the code STMMMS13921 (copy and paste is your friend here!)

They have also given me one copy of the software to give away to my readers! Yay you! There are a few stipulations on winning. First, pop on over to their website and poke around. Pick out your favorite kit and come back here to leave me a comment telling me which one you liked best. That's all you have to do to be entered!

But if you want to get extra entries (and please, don't feel pressured, I know how people feel about this stuff!) you could
  • Like them on Facebook and come back to tell me you did. (If you do this one, you get another coupon for their website!)
  • Like Made by Lisah on Facebook and come back and tell me you did. (I'll give you two entries for this one!)
I'll pick a winner on October 7th.  Good luck!
