I've been looking for a reason to catch up on my digital scrapbooking lately (I'm stuck in 2008, and Tiger Lily is disturbed that she never sees me working on pictures of her), so I was pleased when Liz from My Memories Scrapbook Software contacted me to try out their program.
I've been thinking about switching programs lately—I'm using a very old version of Adobe InDesign running under Windows on my Mac, and the whole setup is rather slow and a bit inconvenient. In a perfect world, I would just buy a new version of the Adobe Creative Suite for the Mac, but since I don't have an extra $1300 to throw around, I've been looking at other programs.
My Memories is easy to use and very fast to learn—and I would recommend it highly for beginners just getting into digital scrapping. I made the page above about 20 minutes after first opening the program (material credits: Plentiful by Shabby Princess, free download).
I love that there is a native Mac version of My Memories (it also comes in Windows if that's what you use). I like that it is so easy to use. I like that it comes with templates for photo books. If I were to do a photo book, I would certainly prefer this software to the photo companies' online software, which drives me batty.
If you would like to purchase My Memories, you can use this coupon code (STMMMS47642) to get $10 off and $10 in free supplies after your purchase.
My Memories is giving away one copy of their software to one of my readers. To enter, please visit their website and tell me which of their kits you like. I'd also love it if you'd share a scrapbooking and/or memory preservation tip (optional).
I will randomly choose a winner on Tuesday December 11. Please be sure to leave a way to contact you in your comment, whether an email address, a blog address, or your Blogger profile. Thanks!
