my memories software review & giveaway

I am non a scrapbooker. I have a scrapbook, which I began inwards early on high schoolhouse in addition to sort of-kind of worked on through my junior twelvemonth of college. I loved the idea of scrapbooking, but I didn’t honey the fourth dimension in addition to inventiveness it took.

Enter digital scrapbooking. I bring friends who bring been into it for years (and who exercise truly cool looking pages), but I truly never understood what it was, in addition to I definitely had no involvement inwards trying it out. Then individual from contacted me nigh reviewing their My Memories Suite v2 digital scrapbooking software. After checking out the fellowship to brand certain the offering was legit, I agreed.

The download process, equally good equally the installation, was simple. Within minutes, I was gear upwards to exercise my ain page. And that’s when I got overwhelmed. I finally only picked a template in addition to tried to teach alongside it, but naught looked just equally I wanted it to. (Honestly, I wasn’t also impressed alongside the templates available.) So therefore I switched to the “Design Your Own” option. I had a nail discovering all the things I could do! Obviously, I’m novel to the globe of digital scrapbooking, therefore I don’t bring anything to compare this to, but for a novice user similar me, the MyMemories software seems pretty nice–and pretty simple.

One of my favorite aspects is the fact that you lot tin add together music in addition to narration to your album in addition to therefore burn downward it to a DVD or fifty-fifty set it on your ipod. Following our great route trip adventure to Oregon ii years ago, I spent hours (and hours in addition to hours) creating a DVD of our trip. And the terminate number was basically a slide present laid to music. MyMemories would allow me to exercise a … slide present laid to music … but alongside cool looking pages instead of only pictures! (In society to exercise this, you lot bring to download the media export software, which is free.)

You tin impress your pages yourself if you lot desire to, or you lot tin bring them printed inwards a photograph book. I bring a lot of sense alongside Shutterfly, in addition to the photograph books through MyMemories are really comparable inwards cost to Shutterfly; inwards fact, they’re truly a chip cheaper. (Of course, when you lot element inwards that you lot bring to pay nearly $40 to download the software, the cost wages goes away, but if you lot desire to survive able to completely customize your book, MyMemories gives you lot that freedom.)

They also bring (as of this writing) 77 costless downloadable kits–some papers, only about embellishments, only about templates, only about quick pages (where you lot basically only drib inwards your picture(s) in addition to the page is finished). I downloaded several already.

So exercise I recommend this? Yes, alongside reservations. Personally, I would never pay $40 for scrapbooking software–because I wouldn’t role it plenty to teach inwards worthwhile. For individual who wants to teach into it, though, I mean value this production would survive useful.

I thought I’d grade you lot a glimpse of what a novice tin exercise alongside this software. You ready?

My outset attempt. It took me forever to exercise this, in addition to I’m non thrilled alongside it.
This ane I’m much happier with–and it took me one-half the time!
