My Memories Suite Review AND Giveaway!!

Look at me! Doing a giveaway like a big shot.

When I was contacted to do a review of My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software I thought it would be pretty cool. I downloaded the software in just a few minutes and got to digi-scrappin. (That's what it's called now. According to me.)

 I used to scrapbook several years ago and I really enjoyed it. The major downside of paper/stickums/scissors/punchouts/embellishments/etc... is exactly that. There is SO much stuff. And it's expensive! On top of that, once you use it, it's gone. So you just spent $7 on little sparkly doodads and you stuck them to a page and there it is. Done. Never to be used again.  Another downside to "real" scrapbooking is needing a space to set out all of your things, and needing to pack it back up, which if you know me, doesn't happen for like 2 weeks.
No glitter all over my dining room rug. Not that that would a real problem.

So back to digi-scrappin. I'm busy. I have a newborn. Is she still a newborn? Whatever. I have a little baby, and a toddler. I don't have a lot of time to mess around. I'm not that creative. That's why this software is perfect for me. I first chose to do a "fast fill" album where they take photos that I've selected and arrange them in a pre-designed album. Talk about easy.

look how little Charlotte was!
Not only can you make scrapbooks, but you can design custom facebook cover photos, blog headers (like mine! what do you think?) and even D.I.Y. party printables if you're creative enough on your own. There are a TON of features to the software, and I've only been using it for less than 2 weeks. Since I am busy, I've just skimmed the surface, but there are some great kits and templates available online too for download. No putting on pants, going to the store, pretending to be nice to's just too much. :)

Now comes the good part for you! My Memories is giving away a FREE download of their software to one lucky winner.
The only thing you need to do is go to and check out some of the digital scrapbook kits they have available and leave a comment here on my blog telling me which one you'd choose for yourself or leave a comment telling me what you'd use the software for (vacation, baby, partying at the bar photo album, etc) That's all it takes to enter. (Comments on my FB page do not count.)
I'll leave it open for a week (or so? I'll be on vacation soon!) so the winner will be chosen Tuesday, November 27. 

What's even better is that I'm not one of those big timer fancy bloggers who has a million readers so your odds of winning are pretty good. :)
**please make sure you have an email address linked to your account when you comment, or just leave it in the comments so I can reach you!**

whoop whoop!

****************GIVEAWAY CLOSED************************
The winner is Trista!!


  1. "Family & Friends" is the one I would choose. (Since I am not exactly sure what I would do with it, I went with one that looked versatile, I'm practical even in my dreaming.) I would hope to to use the software to augment my current scrapbooking process (if its possible to create loose pages verses books). Especially for pages that I would want to duplicate in each of my children's albums. There you go, - Kim Bento :)

    1. You can create loose pages! Thanks Kim!

  2. I would use my memories to create a baby book for my son.

    1. Thanks Michelle! Will you send me your email address so I can reach you if you win?

  3. The Hoo-Who loves you is so cute! I've never scrapbooked but should since I haven't really printed pics since my kids were born. This looks way less intimidating than "real" scrapbooking...

    1. Thanks Tracy! It is so much easier. Especially the fast fill!

  4. OK - I've totally wanted to try digital scrapbooking. I've scrapbooked hundreds (thousands?) of pages by hand, and got so burned out on it I've taken a 3 year hiatus. I am interested in getting back in, and continuing the books I have for each of the kids.

    I love Monstres et Compagnie (cute little monster themed pages).
