My Memories Suite Giveaway & Coupon

I believe I mentioned some time back that I’m a crafter.  One of the crafts I enjoy is scrapbooking.  So when I was given the opportunity to try out the MyMemories Suites scrapbooking software I was excited.  Not that I don’t like my cutters, croppers and paper, but my craft closet is only so big.

The biggest draw for me was the concept of “fixable mistakes”.  There have been many of times where I cut a piece of paper wrong, cut a picture too small or just plain wasn’t happy with a page.  With a digital scrapbook I could experiment on a page over and over until I got the results I wanted… without one wasted picture.

So off to I go.  The download instructions were clear and easy to follow. Your registration code is emailed to you, nice for me because I hate having to print receipts.  Like most software, there is a reboot at the end of the installation so be sure to save anything you may have been working on.

The software is fairly straightforward and easy to use.  I thought it had a Microsoft Office feel to it.  Being that most everyone has at some point in their life used Office I think that is appealing to a broad base.  There is also a handy online manual that has almost any question you can think of in there.

The basic software comes with about 30ish basic designer templates. I was thrilled when I found a treasure trove of free designer kits on MyMemories site. So if you don’t find what you are looking for in the initial download, search the site. There are some adorable kits for sale too. I thought they were reasonably prices, in most cases less than a paper pack at the store.

End result of my testing was me staying up to all hours of the morning creating various pages with our summer vacation pictures.
