FOR A CHANCE TO WIN SOME
DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING SOFTWEAR.
Read on to find out more:
I've always been tempted by scrapbooking but I'm one of those who has so many pictures saved on my camera and computer and never get around to printing them! Therefore, when I was approached by MY MEMORIES to try out their digital scrapbooking softwear, I jumped at the chance. (Make sure you read on for my thoughts on the product and a special deal at the end)
I have made a few pages here using the Sea Breeze digi pack. I have used it to catalogue a walk I did on the Pembrokeshire coast.
I really like the porthole feature. It was so easy to create. You can take your picture and trim it to all sorts of shapes. I obviously trimmed it a circle and then layered the porthole frame over the top.
I especially like all the rope and threading/sewing details that come with this pack. It looks like the pictures have been tied together. Such a great detail. The My Memories Suite has layouts already installed (but you can make your own) and you simply drag and drop your pictures into the picture sections. Then, pick a background paper, add your embellishment and voila - it really is that easy. Once done, you can print out your pages or save them as JPEGs which means you can share them so easily in your blogs, email them to friends - anything you would normally do with a JPEG!
I like how each of the pages I have created look so different and yet use the same graphics pack. However it still seems so cohesive when put together. It is also possible to print off all the elements seperately if you are a paper and glue scrapbooker. The advantage is that you already have all the co-ordinating elements and can print as many as you want, alter the sizes, pre plan on screen and if you make a mistake, simply print off another copy. No need to be scared of using scarce and expensive pieces of paper.
I have to be honest though, I did have a slight bit of trouble when I first started and I was having to keep accepting each image individually but one email to the company and it was sorted - very quick and very efficient. It's good to know that they are happy to help and that there is backup there waiting.
So after having a play about with the softwear (and having tried others in the past which have been more expensive and not as good) I have to say that the My Memories Suite Softwear is great. It's easy to use, you can start from scratch or use some pre loaded basic layouts and build from there. Being a UK resident and this being a US product has not been an issue either. When you see the $ signs, don't panic! The conversion rate is really good right now.
As a thank you for trying out the softwear, My Memories has given me a code which all of you can use to get the softwear at a special price. When buying the suite, use the code STMMMS74774 to get $10 off the price - that's right, instead of $39.97, you will only pay $29.97! That's roughly £20. I've shopped around and haven't found digital scrapbooking softwear at that price yet. But that's not all, you will also get a code which gives you $10 worth of credit at the My Memories store to buy whichever digi kits you want.
But that's not the end of the great news!
I am also able to offer 1 of my readers/followers a FREE copy of the softwear.
All you have to do to win a copy of the softwear is to leave me a message on this post. Mention it on your blog too and I will enter your name twice. You never know, you may be getting an early Christmas present!!! Imagine being able to scrap those Christmas memories digitally and share them with your friends. I will be keeping this draw open for 3 weeks and will announce the winner on Sunday the 11th December.
Keep checking back as I have more kits and pages to share as well as how to use the softwear for other projects.
