My Memories Free Software Giveaway!

Giveaway Ends on Sunday noon Central Time (US) Oct 2, 2011
Winner will be picked Sunday Oct 2, 2011

So, this is my first Giveaway and I am starting with a wonderful software product - My Memories Scrapbook v2.  Valued at $39.97.  I know!  It's a shock, right?  I haven’t done any scrapbooking since the kids were little and that was before there were scrapbook stores filled with every kind of embellishments you can think of for your memory keepsakes.  

I can give you two reasons why I stopped scrapbooking.  The first was storage space and the second was getting our first digital camera.  I just found it easier to store all our photos on the computer.  Then later, I started storing them on the internet with a no frills album setup.   It keeps them out of my closet and I can share them with friends and family.

This digital scrapbook takes care of all my concerns.  I don’t have to worry about it taking up space in our motorhome.  I don’t have to go to a store to buy embellishments.  The best part of all – I can share my scrapbooks either in printed or digital form with family and friends.

My Review
Now I love learning new software so I was pretty eager to check this scrapbook software out.  I have to admit I had a lot of fun playing with it.  It is very user friendly and there’s plenty of help, suggestions, and tutorials online.  I will be posting the Links in bold to My Memories’ sites.

The program comes with several designer albums or you can make your own.  There are more Digital Scrapbooking Kits  as well as some Free Digital Scrapbooking kits.  They also have a Dollar Store with many pages filled with $.99 choices.   So you can keep adding on to your scrapbook designs and embellishments. All are downloadable to your computer.

This software also does video, but I did not work with it at all since I never make videos. I should one of these days.

Okay, back to the review...I picked out a couple of different ones for this review because I could not make up my mind which one I wanted to use.  
Add or remove more pages
My favorite feature is the Fast Fill Insert Photos Automatically.  One suggestion:  have all chosen photos in one folder for the selected album.   Especially if you are like me and take way too many photos of one subject.  Yea, I do a lot of, editing. 

Anyway, this feature is quick and easy.  Just select all and .....
TaDa! they are loaded into your new album.  Don't worry about not having enough pages, the program automatically adds more pages.  You can now add or remove or rearrange to your liking.
To learn more about this program's features please click on Full Feature List.  They have step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow.  They also have Tutorial videos on YouTube.

Oh! and if you still want a physical album, you can do that too using the Photobook Creator online.

  3. Hi I found you from an Etsy team page. I am your newest follower!! Stop by mine when you have the time....I adore blogs and Etsy people!!

  4. I love it!! How fun!! I have boxes and boxes of "real" photos and lots saved on my computer. I need to do something with them all!! I got a program for Christmas last year and I love it. I haven't used it too much. I think I'm up to Christmas last year so I need to get busy!! Maybe I'll work on that a little each week!! Thanks for the reminder!!

    Have a wonderful week!

  5. That looks like a very handy thing. My old dead computer used to be able to put pictures in files but this little substitute can only download them into boxes with numbers and sometimes spit them back out if you get the correct number. I seriously wonder if my technical skills (or lack there of) could make use of something so seemingly wonderful.

  6. WOW - this looks so great - I would love to have something like this to chronicle all my pics of MANY grand kids - I have grands, great grands & 3 GREAT-GREAT grandkids!!

    I have SO MANY 'folders' full of pics I'm loosing track of what I've got ;-(

    This ole GREAT-GREAT GRANNY would love to have this new software. It not only would help me organize my 'family' better, at my age, it would help me keep this ole brain a little more alert learning a NEW technique.


    I 'like' both FB links (don't have a Twitter or Blog)
