My Memories Suite : Review & Software Giveaway

I was recently offered the opportunity to test out a digital scrapbooking software package called My Memories Suite and the developers have also allowed me to offer my readers the chance to win a full version of the software for themselves! If like me you are a PSP or Photoshop user, you might be wondering why you would want another software package. However, you will be pleasantly surpried by all that My Memories Suite has to offer. My Memories Suite is powerful digital scrapping software which you can use to create beautiful and professional looking photobooks and scrapbooks for any occassion.

I have been planning a special 'memories of you' photo album for my mum's 70th birthday in October and if I am totally honest I have been dragging my feet in getting started. Often when I work in PSP my full size (12 inch) pages can really slow me down, but with My Memories Suite 2.0 that was not an issue. Once I found my way around the program I was quickly able to put together a number of beautiful pages for my album in no time at all. This is just one of my pages.

The software comes complete with over 20 professionally designed templates which you can just drag and drop your images into, or alternatively you can build the album yourself from scratch. The software allows various sizes and styles of album. It includes a huge selection of papers, embellishments and templates which can be put together to creat albums for any occasion including vacations, weddings, births and so much more. The My Memories store also have a huge selection of FREE packs to download and hundreds of reasonably priced design kits which you can add to your software to provide even more versatility. The great thing is that these packs can be downloaded in an alternative format which will suit photoshop and PSP as well.

Check out the following video which offers a tour of the software, some basic instructions and much more.

I have a great deal for you from My Memories Studio!! One lucky reader will win a fully functioning copy of the software by answering just one question!! I would like you to visit the My Memories Store and choose which kit is your favourite design, leave a comment below, making sure I have a way to contact you and on September 17th I will announce the winner! But that's not all, if you want the software NOW I also have a great deal to offer. If you enter the code STMMMS30491 at check out you will recieve a $10 discount on your software, The code is ALSO good for $10 worth of kits and additional merchandise. Remember you can use these kits in other software packages too so you could go ahead and use the code for $10 worth of kits and use them in photoshop while you wait to see if you are going to win the software!

I love My Memories Studio, and I think you will too!! So don't forget to tell my which My Memories kit is your favourite before 17 September 2011 to be in with a chance of winning the software!
