My Memories Suite Giveaway

Well, dear readers, it's an exciting day here.  That's because I am having my first giveaway! 

As many of you know, I scrapbook.  Or at least I used to.  I will get back to it.  However, since my move, all of my scrapbooking supplies are still packed in boxes, with no time frame in sight of when it will be unpacked.  So if I have an itch to be creative... to make a scrapbook page or a greeting card...what can I do?  My glue, paper cutter, and scissors are all packed away!  Enter... digital scrapbooking!  

Now I had not tried digital scrapbooking in the past just because I always said I liked to play with paper and glue.  Feel the products in my hands.  However, I find myself in this unique situation of being unable to use my tactile supplies... so trying out digital scrapbooking makes a lot of sense.  

I recently was given the chance to try out the My Memories Suite software.  Now this is more than just a scrapbooking program.  You can make scrapbook pages or an album, sure, but you can also make greeting cards, calendars, videos, invitations, and much more!  You are only limited by your imagination!  They include lots of templates in the software, plus if you don't see something that strikes your fancy, there are tons of templates, kits, and accessories on their site.  

Now you have the opportunity to receive this fabulous scrapbook software for free (worth $40)!  Plus a $20 savings for everyone!

I made three projects using the program this afternoon.  It was very easy to do. I used an album template for my first project.  These are several scrapbook pages already designed, and all you have to do is drop your pictures onto the pages.  If you don't even want to do that, the program will add your pictures for you!  I also wanted to demonstrate how you can use the album templates for a theme other than the one originally suggested.  For instance the album I chose was originally designed for girl pages; I adapted it for my doggie!

Then I made a heritage page, cause that's what I do.  This page I built from "scratch," using background paper and embellishments included in the software.  It's a simple page, but effective.

Also, because I hate paying $3.00 for a greeting card, I made one myself!  Here's the original layout from the software:

And here it is cropped into pieces so you won't have to stand on your head to read the verse:

So as you can see, the software is very versatile.  Now on to the good part:  a coupon code!

My Memories is offering all of you, my readers, $10 off your purchase of the My Memories Suite v2.0 plus a $10 credit toward any purchase at their store!  That's $20 in savings!

Just use the code STMMMS80144 when checking out.  Be sure to let others know too; it would make an excellent Christmas gift!  (I would suggest copying and pasting the code so there are no typos.)

Now you're thinking, "But Liz, what about that giveaway you mentioned at the top of this post?!"  No fear, I haven't forgotten about that!

Disclosure:  I was given a copy of My Memories Suite v2.0 in order to evaluate it and share my impressions with you.


  1. Hi Liz, Thank you for sharing your fun pages. I love your heritage layout. I just started a new weekly Scrapbook Sunday theme for family history scrapbooking. It would be wonderful if you would participate. Come on over and visit. Jen

  2. Heritage past template, Legacy Generations Quick pages.. and I love the White Mocha Pack. My but they do have so many wonderful products. thank you sharing this ... I had never heard of it before. Love what you did with your pages too.

  3. Hey, Liz! I didn't know you scrapbooked! Great pages.

    I have a question though. I know people that have used digital scrapbooking, but do you just keep it all online or do you print pages and actually stick them in a book. Digital scrapbooking isn't something I've ever tried.

    You know where to find me! :)

  4. Great pages Liz! I love, love, love MyMemories!! :)

  5. Hi Liz, like you I've always been a paper scrapbooker, but lately I've been tempted by the digital side. I love what you created-and in a single afternoon!

    It looks like My Memories has some great products. I love the colors in the Tuscan Fall kit, and with Christmas coming I'd like to give Joyeux Noel a try. But the one I'd most like to work with is the 2012 Calendar Template by Albums to Remember. That looks like fun.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway. I look forward to seeing more of your creations!

  6. OK, I officially "like" My Memories on Facebook! Nice that they give you a $5 coupon code to use.

  7. And I posted about them on Twitter. Feel a little silly leaving all these separate comments here, though :)
