My Memories Suite :: Review and ***Giveaway***

~ Open Internationally!
~ Giveaway at the end of this post!

Hello Lovely Friends,
We're here to review a wonderful digital scrapbooking software and to host our first ever giveaway. Honestly, I was not a huge fan of scrapbooking software. But when I was contacted for a review, I  had a peek through their website some ideas splashed on my mind... "why can't I use it for some learning and fun time with Liya". We're looking forward to ideas, everyday. This sounded very exciting. 

Well, Liya is too small to create her own designs... but yes she has the creativity to give me orders..lols! So we did a few designs!

They have inbuilt templates and you can choose any from a variety of them. You may purchase or even build your own.  We decided to give a try with a few..

1) Learning Seasons...
Spring has started to sprung...we're getting ready to go out and play in the park everyday. Insha Allah! What a nice time to learn about seasons. Liya knows about four seasons. [Hope you had a chance to look at the story we shared around the theme seasons]. Well, with this memory scribbling software we decided to create a showcase of some moments from our FOUR seasons in US. That was very exciting. Liya and I recalled a lot of wonderful moments we had together, the beautiful places we visited through the year.. and a lot more. See some picks we created together.

2) We did a custom design:
Liya picked her favorite picture as background and she selected some embellishments. I showed her each category and she picked her favorite goodies with a color of her choice.. See how that turned out..:)

Did you notice the school bus? That's her new craze. She badly wants to ride in a school bus, often sings 'wheels on the bus..' plus whenever she sees a school bus in a paper she wants me to crop it for her..Apart from  schoolbus rest all are placed as she suggested...

3) A Mehandi design by Liya
Of late Liya has been a crazy fan of mehandi (henna). Everyday she puts some designs on her hand, washes it in the basin, giving me extra job of cleaning her dresses, bathroom etc.. It was her idea to do a 'mehandi design'..  See how she picked elements, chose color and placement!

 These all what we did. Liya is too small so we did some basic design and memory keeping but the software offers a wide range of possibilities. You can design printable designer bookmarks, gift wrappers, scrap books etc with mind-blowing themes. You can design a beautiful gift with very less time, print it and add into your gift package, next time when you go for a birthday party, baby shower or a wedding... Or Have fun with your kids, designing their favorite gift on next special occasion.

What made us LOVE this software?
  • Very hassle free to download, install and even run
  • They have both MAC and WIN versions. Being an avid MAC fan, I just keep away from any s/w which only support WIN
  • The wider range of options in designing and arranging
  • Flexibility with design- easy to crop, arrange, mirror effect, rotate, add shadow
  • Make use of any font installed in your PC
  • Easy to use and very clean interface
  • Not a too techy stuff
  • Easy to add/remove pictures
  • Less time to import, export and save
  • Wider range of free kits downloadable from mymemories website
  • You can export each album with every page as a separate JPEG. Wow, I just loved it.
  • No resolution or quality loss when you export it.

  1. Hello! Wow, I cannot believe I am the first one to comment! Maybe I will get lucky! I'd love to get this software, as I would really like to start doing more digital scrapbooking, but right now I don't have the right software for it! Fingers crossed!

  2. Thanks for sharing this interesting info...and best wishes

  3. YOu really made some wonderful things with the software!

    1. @Leigh- It's not google plus, but GFC which is present on the left sidebar, top of my blog.

  4. I'm horrible at creating any sort of book with our pictures. Seriously, I still don't have our wedding photo in anything, just a box. This could be a really good option, especially if you say it is easy.

  5. I ♥ using My memories Suite. Just finished putting together a story book about my granddaughter! Good luck with your giveaway!

  6. I've never heard of the product until now. I've kind of gotten out of scrapbooking but would love to get back into it. I love the "Spring" layout.
