My Memories Suite Review & Giveaway!




Giveaway? You read that right! Read on till the end to find out how you can take part in My Memories Suite   Giveaway ($40 value).  How did this come about?  Let me do a quick recap from the past :o).  I still remember what I wrote sometime back in Feb 2007 (5 things you didn't know about me).

I love paper crafts - I buy lots of magazines and books but I never sit still long enough (apart from being on the PC) to do a proper project! Ha ha ha...Here's part of the "library".



And then in January 2008 when I did a tag passed on to me by NKOTB, I had said that one of the things I’ve always wanted to do is to be serious about my paper craft work!

Recently, I was given a copy of My Memories Suite to review and blog on my opinion of it. I now have the opportunity to get some projects off the ground!  This digital scrapbooking software that's rated #1 by Amazon and Top Ten Reviews, creates scrapbooks easily (photobooks, cards, calendars and much more too!).  Since I had said that I'm usually on the PC most of the time when I'm at home (that is whatever little amount of time when I'm indeed at home!), this scrapbooking software definitely is such a booster for me to start on my projects! Best part about it is that one can even add audio/video to the projects! Before this, projects usually means clearing table space and having my craft tools & kits at hand which which is why I haven't been that serious about it as I want to be.  Anyway, I've been checking out My Memories Suite bit by bit and recently did a project.

Here's a screen shot of the software

Starting on my first project, I wanted to do a page with the dogs ... you can design your own album or choose from one of the many design templates.  Here, I use one of the pages from the "Out Of The Box-Spring" design.  Selecting photos to be used is a breeze, you can just drag the photos from the left panel and right onto the design boxes.

I did some slight redesigning to move (and add) the boxes around and I added the ready-to-use embellishments (Word Art) from the Dog Gone Cute kit and created this. That's it, quick and easy.  Okay, you are gonna ask how did I get the picture to be posted here from the album in the first place.  Here's how....

Click on the "Share Album" button and you can choose any of the options from the drop down list :-
Export to JPEG (which is the one I chose), Photo Album, Calendar, Interactive Album, Make Movie, iPod-ready Movie and Burn DVD-Video!

I had so much fun making this too, so much so that I need to stay at home more often to start on more projects.  My Memories Suite is easy, quick, fun and most of all mess free, hahaha...Actually, it's great for bloggers as we can make collages out of the many photos that we put on our blog, makes it more interesting.
