My Memories review and GIVE AWAY!!!

I have been waiting for so long to use this sponsor love button...
and now I can.

I was recently contacted by My Memories.
They are a scrap booking company that has perfected computer scapbooking.
They have a product called My Memories Suite III and asked if I would use and review it.
First things first I was not a scrapbooking person, nor did I ever think I would become one....
but that is exactly what this software did, it hooked me.
When I first downloaded the software on my computer it was a lot to take on.
A completely new product can be very intimidating...

That is what I thought, then I went to their site and watched TWO,
yes only two, tutorial videos and just like that I knew everything I needed.
(videos are about 8 minutes each, super easy to understand)

Right after the tutorials I dove right in and messed around a bit.
The user interface is soooooooooooo easy and making a page is a sinch.

This was the first page I made.

Once you buy and download the software you will find an OOODLE of supplies already built in.
You got your background papers, your stamps, your stickers, your die cuts.
Pretty much anything you would see in a craft store in the scrap book isle, yep its there.
I don't know how they did it, but they figured a way to make scrap booking that much easier.

So get this, usually you would go to the store. You might have a certain page you are working on and need to stock up on supplies. You get paper, stickers, other embellishments. You also need to buy scrap booking tape and ribbon.... oh and don't forget the markers.
All of these things are on a use once basis.
You use a sticker on a page and its gone.
So just in supplies alone you are already out maybe twenty bucks.
This is what is soooo great about MY MEMORIES everything you download stays with the program
Use a certain embellishment as many times as you want, it will never run out.
But say you like the shopping part of scrap booking, the hunt for the perfect touch to your page.
Never fear, My Memories has got you covered.
On their site they provide you with scrapbook shopping wonderment!
They have a free page where you can download as many items as you want completely free.
They have a 1.00 store, which I love, there are soooo many fun layouts and templates for sooo cheap.

When you enter in the software you are asked if you would like to start from scratch and create something completely original, or if you would like to use one of their designer templates.
What is great about their designer templates (which can be like 15 pages) is they are so easy to manipulate. You can add or take away anything from the layout. This is awesome because if you like how the designer made it, all you need to do is click and add your pictures, presto your done. Or you can add your photo and add your own extra embellishments to customize it. Any embellishment from any page can be used....

When you download from the website you have a choice to put it directly into the software, or you can download it into your computer.
I personally just download it directly into my computer.
This is great because it makes any background paper, embellishment, banner, ect... into an easy to you jpeg or png file. That way not only can a make my scrap book awesome, but I can also use these fun prints and things to make my blog awesome.

Especially those of you that use your blog as a scrap book! YAY.
