In the past few weeks, a few people have asked me what kinds of crafts I like. And it’s easy to answer – anything that isn’t knitting, crocheting or scrapbooking. Those are fine crafts, just not ones that I’ve picked up yet.
See that? There might just be scrapbooking in my future after all…
Recently, I was contacted and asked if I would like to review (and give away!) the My Memories Suite software. It is digital scrapbooking software, and is billed as “easy to use!”. Fortunately for them, they were right.
I went to the website, added the software to my virtual cart, gave them my promotional code, and “bought” it (for the low, low price of FREE.) From there, I went to the My Downloads page and found the software in my queue. I downloaded the software to my computer, and I was good to go! There are a few pre-decorated albums already loaded into the software, which is perfect for a complete NOOB (that’s pronounced Newbie) like me. The page above took me all of three minutes to put together. (I spent the next 10 minutes trying to figure out how to share the image with all of YOU. Heh. Some blogger I am, right??!)
Oh, and the process to make the album? Super simple: open a new project. Choose a template. Click on the camera icon on the right to add new pictures. Drag those pictures over the blank “holes” and wait for them to light up blue. Let go, and use the icons to edit the picture as necessary (crop, rotate, etc.) That’s it! Save your project, and you’re done for the day. Later, you can print them out, or share them…and if I figure out how to do that, I’ll let you know. *grin* (Oh, and also? Don’t think this is just for scrapbooking…when you view your album, you have the option to make it into a calendar or a card, too! And wouldn’t the grandparents just love that for the holidays…)
So – the verdict? I like it. LIKE it, like it. As in, I might start scrapbooking. (Please don’t hold me to that…)
(I’ve also learned that iPhone pictures, while quick and convenient, always pale in comparison with shots taken with a real camera. Hence the pixel-y images that you would see on my “page” up there…if you could actually see all the details. Heh.)
Now, who would like to try out this software…for FREE??! You would? Listen up:
1) Go to www.MyMemories.com and have a look around. Poke around their papers section, and tell me which set you love most. Or check out their embellishments! Or free downloads! Just come on back here and leave a comment to let me know what you loved.
That’s it! We’ve all had a nice relaxing, LONG weekend, and I want to keep this short and sweet.
If you love My Memories, and would like to keep up to date on their shenanigans, you can also find them here:
Good luck! The winner will be announced on Friday, June 3.
