Are you into scrapbooking? Then you'll love this GIVEAWAY!

The giveaway is now CLOSED. 
Thanks to everyone who entered!

I'm really excited about today's post! 

Remember my earlier post about that cool digital scrapbooking software and how I was going to do a review and then you guys would have a chance to win a copy of the software for yourself? 

Well, today's the day!

I was given a copy of the software for free for the purposes of this review and giveaway. 
The opinions expressed are my own.

My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software Review



My Memories Suite is digital scrapbooking software which lets you create entire scrapbook albums quickly and easily on your computer! It's compatible with PCs and Macs, and can be extended with a range of purchasable paper and embellishment kits, or you can make your own! It has an easy to use drag and drop interface and is super user friendly for those who are less PC savvy, while still being powerful enough for experienced scrapbookers!

"My Memories Suite is rated #1 by Amazon for digital scrapbooking software and is of $40 value"


~ Pros ~
* Easy drag and drop interface
* Huge variety of papers, embellishments, etc 
 * Lots of cool freebies available including "quick pages" where you just add photos and text!
* Very flexible - can add and format text, word art, shapes, change colours, transparency, rotation, etc
* Lets you make entire albums not just single pages
* Can make your album interactive, using sound and video
* Lots of 'export' options, from JPG image files, to movies, podcasts and can even burn to DVD
* You're not limited to just scrapbooking! You can also create blog headers, avatars, calendars, cards, and I've even seen people recipe books! Impressive!

Also, their Facebook page is very active! I like that, because it means super fast and friendly technical support, giveaways, competitions, tutorials and even "speed scrap" events where you follow instructions as they're given and everyone posts their scrapbook page at the end! These are fun, very inspirational and educational! 
I'm HOOKED!


~ Cons ~

* The software lagged a fair bit on my computer. However, quite a few programs do this to me and I haven't read of anyone else having this problem, so I suspect my computer just isn't quite up to scratch! It is a bit on the old side ;)
* You can't alter the colour of your papers or embellishments. You can alter the size, transparency, rotation, location, etc, but not the colour - they are image files which explains why you can't, but it'd be a nice feature.
* You can't "send to back"/"send to front" or change the colour of multiple items at once, you have to select one at a time (unless you group them first).
* Your scrapbook page is made up of layers which is great, however there's no way to see the layers explicitly (like you can in Photoshop or other graphics programs, for example). This would also be a nice feature to add.


~ Summary ~

While there are a few little features I'd add, overall I've thoroughly enjoyed using this software and will continue to use it, and recommend it to my friends! It's so easy to use, really fun and it's so satisfying to see your scrapbook pages come together so quickly!
