My Memories Giveaway!

I'm so excited to be posting this!  My Memories has offered me the opportunity to do a giveaway, here, on my blog!  I can't use enough exclamation points, this is so awesome!

Some lucky blog reader or Facebook friend will win the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software (a $40 value).   This is a digital scrapbooking software package that enables you to make fun scrapbook pages, collage photos to hang on your wall, cards, calendars, digital slides with video and whatever else you can come up with to do with your pictures.

To enter the giveaway, visit the My Memories web page then come back and leave a comment on this post telling me which kit you would purchase 1st.  (Please be sure to give me your email) The winner will be picked at random on Thanksgiving morning (Nov 24th) at 10am (Pacific). 

They also gave me the opportunity to use the software, and it's been a lot of fun to see what I can do with it.  They have easy to use instructions on their web page that helped out a newbie like me and made it easy to jump right in.
I love the different backgrounds, embellishments and design elements that come with the software.  You are also able to purchase all kinds of kits (along with a nice selection of free kits) that help you make spectacular pages.

I tested out one of the pre-made templates to make this page: 
 You can simply drag and drop photos into the layout, add extra embellishments (like the orange brads and rope), then any words or text.  Everything is moveable, rotatable, and easy to crop as needed.  There is also photo editing available to change the tone (black & white/sepia), red eye, lighten/darken/etc to make your photos really shine.

Next I tried out using a blank template.
(You may be getting an early preview of our Christmas card!)
I picked a background paper, then added a photo template, inserted picutres, added the snowflake element, then the Happy Holidays saying, then the text across the bottom.  I love that even though I picked a photo layout, I could change things.  Like the cropping on the boys' soccer pictures so that I could add two picture into a spot that originally had one.  Then I added the picture of the rabbits to the template because I needed one more.

It was a lot of fun to use the software and I've barely scratched the surface.

If you are interested in purchasing the software go here and use the coupon code STMMMS84354 to receive $10 off the purchase of your software and a $10 coupon to spend at My Memories (a $20 value!).

Don't forget to enter the giveaway, the winner will be picked at random on Thanksgiving morning (Nov 24th) at 10am (Pacific).

Go forth and be crafty!

I love the Batter Batter Swing layout! I have tons of pictures of Cody from baseball and All Stars and that would be a really fun way to display them. Also, Ashlee just made Club volleyball and I am the team mom so Set Serve Kill looks like it would come in handy. Looks like a great way to preserve the memories and a fun way to display them. Congrats on being chosen!

Awesome! I've been wanting to try out digi scrapbooking for a long time! I love the HUGE variety of all packs. I would pick PINK FUSION by Lindsay Jane.
