My Memories Suite

50th Anniversary-001

I have never wanted to be a scrapbooker.  Our children are all grown and 3 of the 4 live a long distance away so we don’t get to be with them or their children often.  However, a new program that offers digital scrapbooking has come along and I think it is going to be a great way to document my quilts, pets, travels, etc., as well as a way to create some really interesting quilt labels and maybe even to add some visual interest to my blog (as if it needed it, huh?).

Above is my first try with the My Memories Suite.  In this page I am using a premade template that comes with the software (there appear to be hundreds of them).  I was able to manipulate everything on the page that was already there and to add my own “stuff.”  If I read the opening page right, when I have become more familiar with the software, I will be able to create my own templates but for now, using what is there seems best to me.

What is also cool about this program is that I can save my page, print my page, and/or post or email my page. 

I am going to play with this for a week or two and then My Memories Suite is going to let me offer one for a giveaway.  I will be practicing and plan to be posting about it a few more times before the giveaway.  Stay tuned to learn and get excited about this new creative software.

Have fun with this -- I've seen quite a number of bloggers playing with this software and enjoying it! :)

I got this offered to me about 6 weeks ago(to try and then give a copy away on my blog) but hubby and I were unable to get it to download after trying several times. I contacted the gal who sent me the email offering it and she offered very little in the way of help...we tried what she suggested and it didn't work, so I contacted her again and she has never replied....and I tried again to contact her in case that email got lost. I love scrapbooking and am so disappointed that I was unable to get this to download for me. Enjoy your copy of it!

I received the offer a week or so ago and have posted a giveaway on my blog. I've been playing quite a bit with the software and absolutely love it. It's amazing all the things you can do with it.

I won a giveaway for this from another blog. It is a lot of fun - It's funny that I used the same template you did to try it out!
