Product Review

After my third child was born a little over eight years ago I was given a gift of a traditional 12x12 scrapbook along with a few supplies.  Little did I know that this would blossom into a full-blown obsession for me.  These days I have enough supplies to open my own store!

Slowly over the past few years I have become intrigued by the idea of digital scrapbooking, and digital design in general. It drove me crazy knowing that I could create these kinds of things myself rather than paying someone else to do it, and I set out to learn what I could accomplish on my own.

In my learning process I have completed a few different projects such as digital invites, digital cards, and my Etsy shop banner and avatar.  I was not using any scrapbooking software, rather just locating different elements, etc. from across the web and using Photoshop. This became fun for me, but rather time-consuming.

This is when My Memories came into the picture with this wonderful offer.  I would receive a free copy of their software to try out and review, and then I could host a giveaway for one of my readers to also win a copy! I was so excited to that I immediately accepted, downloaded the software, and began creating. 

First off I decided to begin with a premade page template for this Christmas layout.  This is the simplest, fastest way to create a page.  All I needed to do was to chose the template (there are over 30), upload my photo, rearrange the elements, and it was done!

Next I decided to create a few of my own projects by selecting from the software's selection of papers (over 1,500), and elements (over 1,000).  This process takes a bit longer only because there are so many choices! I could sit there all day rearranging and trying out all different papers and elements until I get the look I desire.  This is what I came up with~

Lastly this is the project I'm most proud of ~ a promo flyer with tear-off tabs for my Etsy shop!

As you can see this program isn't just for scrapbookers. It's super easy to learn and use, and I would definately recommend this product whether or not you are new or a pro at digital design. There's seemingly endless possibilities of what you can create ~ photobooks, cards, and gifts. Then there's always add on digital packs, papers etc. you can purchase, so you can stay updated with what's new. 

 If you'd like to win a free copy for yourself just follow the instructions below!
Disclosure: All opinions expressed are my own. No compensation was received, although I did receive a free copy of this software in order to write this review.
