a pretty giveaway {digital scrapbooking software}

Admittedly, I've never been a scrapbooker. You know I'm not "crafty". Anything involving cutting a straight line with a pair of scissors is entirely too difficult for me. However, I've always loved the idea of scrapbooking. I love journals, sketchbooks, blogs – anything that allows one to document life. And what's a prettier way of documentation than scrapbooking? So, when My Memories contacted me about doing a review/giveaway on my blog of their digital scrapbooking software, I decided to give it a try...

The Review:
Like I said, I've never been into scrapbooking, but I am a graphic designer. Therefore, I think the digital software is a good fit for me. Personally, I liked how all of the key commands {or keyboard shortcuts} are the same as what I'm used to {in Photoshop, for example}. This made the software super duper easy for me to use. And even if you're not a Photoshop geek like me, overall I think the My Memories Suite is very easy to figure out.

I liked that all of my fonts transfered over to the program. I don't know what the Suite initially provides you with, but being a graphic designer I have a lot of fonts on my computer that I was glad I could use.

I also liked that the software came with a lot of embellishments. And, downloading the templates and kits you want from their website is much cheeper than buying all that pretty paper in stores {not to mention that with the use of a kit, much of the work is done for you!}

Below are two examples I did using my favorite of the templates provided in the My Memories Suite:
One thing I didn't like {this is an honest review after all} was, once I added large pictures to my pages {see the angel statue in the background of the second page?} the program slowed down a bit. Although, this could have just been an issue with my computer.

Overall, I think the My Memories Suite is an excellent digital scrapbooking software. With the software you can make scrapbook layouts, photo books, cards, calendars, even videos – get creative! Then, easily share your creations! Visit these My Memory links to learn more : websiteblogfacebooktwitter, and youtube.
