My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Suite Review & GIVEAWAY! (Now closed)

The giveaway is now closed!  Kim Leavens, you are the winner!  The coupon code is still active.  Scroll down for $10 off the software plus a $10 coupon to their store!  

When I was contacted by the people at My Memories about trying out their digital scrapbooking software, I was super excited!  Although sewing is usually my creative outlet, I have been scrapbooking for a long time and I get nerdily excited about things like paper and embellishments.  I have always wanted to try out digital scrapbooking and this was the perfect chance!



I was really impressed by how easy they make it to get started.  The My Memories Suite comes preloaded with a bunch of really cute layouts.  All you have to do is add your photos!  There are several pages in each layout, so you can quickly make a coordinated scrapbook just by pointing and clicking!  I made this page about our lazy cute cat in about 2 minutes.  I even customized it by replacing one of the embellishments with something I liked better.  It's so easy to give the premade layouts your own touch!



If you feel like exercising your creative juices, you can also start from a blank layout and fill everything in just the way you like.  There are tons of paper choices and embellishments to choose from that come with the software, but you can also visit their store and buy very reasonably priced paper packs and and layouts.  I decided to use the girls' upcoming birthday as a chance to test out what you can do from a blank layout.  I made this invitation for their birthday party using a blank 5x7 page.  I just clicked to add the photo, embellishments and text that I wanted!



Even if you're not a scrapbooker by nature, this software is a great tool to have!  Cards and invitations are simple and fun to customize and if you like to blog, there are so many cute embellishments!  You could make tons of fun buttons and graphics for your blog!  I decided to see what I could do for a new blog header and came up with this from a blank page.


   
Overall I think this program is really nice!  It's easy to use and there are tons of options that come with it to get you started, plus many more available to purchase!  My Memories Suite could be used for a big variety of creative projects, not just scrapbooking.  The price is very reasonable and to make it even better, My Memories is offering $10 off the software PLUS a $10 coupon code for the My Memories store for Double Stitching readers!  That brings the software to under $30!!  

To use the $10 coupon, simply apply my code when you check out!  The code is:
