A Gift and a Giveaway!

I have had an opportunity to play around with the My Memories Suite V4 software. What a lot of fun! There is just so much you can do with this software and I have just barely scratched the surface.

With digital scrapbooking  becoming so popular this software sure makes it easy. I am not a scrapbooker, in fact I have never created a scrap book page at all. I did my first one with this software. This is what I made.

I had a great subject don't you think? This is our new puppy. We have had him now for about 2 weeks so of course he is a bit bigger now. That's for another page.

I also created this card front. using the digital software. The only issue I had was there is a way to edit the shapes in the software. To get that feature to work for me I had to run the software as an administrator. From what I heard from tech support is this is pretty common for windows problems and a very easy fix. Tech support has been great to work with as well.

The final item I have created to share with you is this blog button.
Using this software made it really very easy to create. I want to try to make a header for my blog soon and then try to do some backgrounds to match.

My Memories Suite has a lot of great tutorials out on youtube. Here is a link to their channel. I found watching the videos very helpful as I started using the software. I still have more to watch and learn and I got some great tips and tricks and learned things about the software I didn't discover on my one. I have big plans to continue to explore this software and gain the skills and knowledge to fully enjoy this software. I sure hope you plan to join me in my adventure.

I think the one biggest point I want to make with the all of you is that this software is way beyond just for scrap booking. You can create all kinds of custom pages and elements for your projects.

So now for the gift for all of you. To help you get started on your own adventure I can now offer you a $10 discount off of this software. Click the link below and enter my code

  1. Good morning, Deanna. i am bookmarking this post. i recieved the My Memories software free from Made Especially For You last month, and have downloaded it, but then life interrupted, and i haven't had time to play. This will help loads. Thanks, and have a Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Thanks for posting this Deanna! I have heard a lot about this software - and your review and samples solidify it - this IS a good digital suite!
    After peeking - I picked the Cruise kit as my favorite! We are taking a cruise this summer - so this would be a quick and easy way to get those photos in an album shortly after the vacation - rather than 3 or 4 years later by the time I get to it!

  3. Hi Deanna...I love the Peaceful Winter and Candied Raspberry Cream. The colors in those are gorgeous and I'd love to have a peaceful winter like that.

  4. This is great! I love the layout of Smokey and that card is so pretty and springy! What a great badge you came up with! There is a lot you can do with software when you take the time to learn it. Thanks for the tips!



  5. Totally adorable Deanna!!You are so right!!Your subject is pretty darn perfect!

  6. They have some fabulous kits over there! I like Delightful Daydreams. Love the colors in it! Thanks for the opportunity!
