My Memories Review and Giveaway!


I was recently asked to review My Memories Suite Version 3. My memories is a digital scrapbook company with a fantastic software program to create digital albums.
 So I played around with it and came up with a couple of cute projects.  Here is a layout of Hudson on his 6th birthday:
And here is a possible label for the goats milk soap I have been making.
I'm quite happy with how both turned out.
So here's the nitty gritty on what I think of the software.
The Good:
  • There are oodles of papers, embellishments and kits to choose from on the site and a good selection of them are free.
  • The quality of the images is beautiful.  I love that the burlap on my soap label makes me want to reach out and touch it.
  • The set up is quite easy.
  • The cost is not prohibitive ($39.97 and I have a code for $10 off.  STMMMS56033)
  • Once you purchase the software you get another promo code for $10 to shop for digital images on the My Memories site.
  • There is a search feature on the site so you can find that perfect item to add to your project.
  • Sizing items and photos is really easy.
  • Product support is amazing.  You have no idea how many times I have emailed with questions, and they get right back to me.
  • There are quick pages where all you do is plug in your photos and voilĂ  done.
  • There is no mess to clean up!!!
Things that could be improved:
  • It took me quite a while to navigate around the software so a walk through would be nice.  And if there is a walk through somewhere already then label it clearly because I missed it.
Buy it:
Head on over to My Memories and purchase their software using this promo code for $10 off STMMMS56033.
