My Memories Review and Giveaway

This Giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Comment #5, Jollym, who is the Winner!!

I am very excited to tell you about My Memories and their digital scrapbook software today. Their software allows you to create scrapbook-style pages from your computer. They have tons of free templates to choose from or you can start from scratch to design your own templates.

The favorite thing about this software is how versatile it is in creating a variety of different projects. Not only can you create your own scrapbook, but you can create your own greeting cards, invitations, calendars, blogger background designs and headers, and so much more! The software even has an option to create a slide show with music! You can have your pages printed and bound in a book, print them from your own computer, or save them as a JPG file and use them digitally.

Every year for Christmas I make a calendar as a gift for my siblings and I typically use an online company. My biggest complaint about those companies is how unappealing their background pages are. When I heard about this scrapbook software and it's ability to create your own custom calendars I squealed with delight! I have been working away at it the last couple days and I've completed my own calendar pages. Here is a little sample.

I found the software so simple to use and navigate through. I used their Help section a couple times and found it really useful for any questions I had. Although the software came with tons of free backgrounds and embellishments, I decided to purchase the "It Happened This Year" pack from their website to create my calendar pages. I was so surprised with how much I received with the pack for only $3.59. I have bought scrapbook supplies in the past and know how pricey they are, so imagine how pleased I was to get so much for only a couple dollars. Plus, they had pages of Free packs you can download without having to purchase anything.

Now that I've been introduced to this software my list keeps growing with ideas of how to use it. I KNOW you will feel the same way about it!

My Memories has been so gracious to give away one software package to one lucky I Heart Crafty Things Reader. I know, aren't you excited?!!

OK, I know this comment isn't about the give-away (I will leave some more comments to hopefully win that)... This is a BIG thank you for all your awesome comments on my most recent blog posts! You are such an encouragement to me!

Knitting and crocheting is super easy!! My friend just learned to crochet via youtube. My grandma taught me when I was 8. I would totally show you if you still lived in the O.C. :)

Thanks for always keeping me inspired to do crafty things with my kiddos!

My absolute FAVORITE thing to eat on Thanksgiving is my grandmothers chicken and dumplings. There are seriously huge fights over who gets to take the leftovers home! :)
