MyMemories Software Giveaway + free calendar printable! (closed)

This giveaway is now closed. The winner is #51 Brandy!

So I got my craft on this past weekend. Say what?  As you know I’m so not crafty, in fact I use to be a scrapbooker person just so I could organize all the supplies. So not kidding.  Anyway once I realized that all those supplies took up way more space than the time I ever spent with them I needed to rethink things and said bye bye to most of those supplies.

So when the makers of the MyMemories Scrapbook software asked me to review their product, I was like um no thank you.  Well actually I wasn’t even that polite, I may or may not have just deleted the email “by accident”.  Then one night I was blog surfing and stumbled across one site where the blog master was offering up a pretty free printable to her readers.  She’d made this printable using, you guessed it, the MyMemories software.  Well who knew you could do that?  Anybody that knows me knows I have a HUGE fascination with printables.  Love them!

Lucky for me, the owners of MyMemories emailed me again and I decided I would be brave enough to try it despite the fact that technology likes to mock me consistently and stick it’s tongue out at me for being so stupid for not understanding how it works.  This totally happens to me….time and time again.

So after downloading the software to my computer I started playing around.  I never read manuals or instructions, which could so be why I never understand what I’m doing but whatever.  Anyway after a few hiccups that might have involved a few grunts and groans, I did indeed figured it out and made a very awesome printable (if I do say so myself!) for anyone planning on participating in Org Junkie’s 29 Day Organizational Challenge starting tomorrow.  Check out this calendar I created, hola!

Download Feb Calendar here

So here is what I know.  Playing around creating this calendar was fun.  I really enjoyed myself and am pretty happy with the result.  The software itself only comes with basic backgrounds and embellishments but you have MANY options to purchase various kits and templates on their website.  In other words it could get as addictive and expensive as traditional scrapbooking (however no clutter which makes me very happy!).  Just something to keep in mind.  The embellishments I used to create my calendar I did purchase separately.  Will I make more printables?  Yes I definitely will!

If you are interested in checking out the MyMemories Digital Scrapbooking software for yourself, the company has given me a special code that will give you a $10 discount off the purchase of the MyMemories Suite software plus you also get a $10.00 coupon to use at the MyMemories.com store – a $20.00 value!  The code is STMMMS32191 (copy and paste it to make it easier)

 

Giveaway:

I also have a copy of the software to giveaway as well.  If you would like the chance to win the MyMemories Suite software simply leave a comment on this post, prior to Monday, February 6th at 6:00 pm PST, telling me whether or not you’ve ever ventured into digital scrapbooking before.

    This is so funny because leaning how to do digital scrapbooking is on my 2012 To Do list! I used to be a dedicated scrapbooker…. and then I became a blogger, and time for scrapbooking has gone out the window. So I’ve been thinking…. since I seem to run the rest of my life on a computer- why not try digital scrapbooking and see if it is a faster / better way to manage scrapbooking for 6 kids?
    So I would LOVE to win!

    If I won this I could donate my huge stash of scrapbooking supplies that mocks me every time I walk by and adds to my guilt for not scrapbooking my kids’ childhood! :-) Please pick me!!

    JoannaTopazT says

    I have done photobooks on the various sites, and been frustrated that I could not make my pages like *I* wanted to do, so I’m pretty sure I’d love digital scrapbooking, but I have not done it — yet. I would love to win this, though!
    How long is the discount code good for? (In other words, will it still work after the giveaway closes, if I don’t win?)

    This software sounds like it would also be doable for me. Like you, I don’t read manuals unless I get into a sticky spot and need assistance. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Having realized that I am not a scrapbooker, I’m now starting to look in to digital scrapbooking. I think I’d like an application I can use locally on my computer.

    I’ve never ventured into digital scrapbooking. I would love to make cute memory books for my daughter. Right now we rely on plain jane picture books with no flare as our keepsakes!

    I have just started learning about digital scrapbooking. I’m not sure I could do a whole album that way but definitely think I will start including some digital elements in my traditional pages.

    TJP1071 says

    I have never went the scrapbook route! I have bought scrapbooks…I have bought paper…I take the pictures…..I just have never made a scrapbook page! LOL

    The idea that it is digital sounds great!

    I did however make my husband a 52 reasons I love you book for Christmas! (found on Pinterest) With my items purchased for scrapbooking! LOL

    Thanks for all your great ideas.

    I would love to win, I once ventured into regular scrapbooking have not tried digital scrapbooking. But I think it would be something fun to try.

    Camille says

    I have not ventured into digital scrapbooking. It would be interesting to see if I am better at that than paper, glitter, book type scrapbooking.

  19. 19
    Joanna says

    I’ve always been a traditional scrapbooker, but with my experience in graphic design and the desire to minimize my craft supplies (I have carts full), I’d love to get started with digital.

    Jenny says

    I would love this! My youngest would love it if I made her a baby book like I did for her older siblings!

    Carol @cdm-arewethereyet says

    I have not taken the leap into digital scrapbooking. I am like you – I swear the two computers in our house get together at night, after I go to bed, and laugh at the feeble attempts that I have made during the day to conquer their domains. Plus, I think they gang up on me just to make sure I never get “it” right! LOL! However, I am stubborn and will NOT give up. So, I am all for jumping into the digital scrapbook game – especially since my VERY FIRST GRANDBABY will be born this June – I really think I NEED to win this! Don’t you agree????

    would love to do digital scrapbooking but never knew where to start. This software sounds ideal for that.

    Need a new hobby and this might the ideal thing for me.

    I love to scrapbook and I use every available thing I can get my hands on to do my scrapbooks. I would love to try a new software. I too love to organize and enjoy your site so much. Thanks for some great ideas.

    I’ve tried it once, but it was on my own so it took a lot of time. I think some kind of program would be helpful.

    I have never ventured into the scrapbooking world so I am not sure why I am commenting. Guess I think digital scrapbooking would be more to my liking if it was easy and fun. It is worth a try!

    I’ve made several photo books. Does that count as digital scrapbooking? I really enjoyed the photo books. This looks like it would be lots of fun.

  37. 37
    Meggan says

    I would love to try digital scrapbooking, I do traditional scrapbooking and i have done several 8×8 digital shutterfly books for birthdays. I think I would allow others to look at a digital scrapbook since they could not mess it up :)

    Shari~Rain into Rainbows says

    I’ve never tried digiscrapping, and I’ve been wanting to for awhile. In fact, it’s right up there with learning blog design for me!

  39. 39
    Aletha says

    Oh my gosh! That looks like an incredible program! I’ve not done much scrapbooking much less digital scrapbooking (unless you count yearbook in high school). But I love the idea of not having tons of random craft-its lying about my den (which is the room I chose for the 29 Day Challenge) That might actually make it possible for me to clear out a TON of things I thought I’d use during that elusive “someday-when-I-have-more-time”. :D Whoever wins will be a happy camper for sure! Good luck to all and congrats to whoever wins it!

    I tried to dip my toes in once & failed miserably…I think the software was sticking it’s tongue out at me too! This software looks like something even I could use – I’ve wanted to scrap digitally for years!

    Lori says

    I love looking at what wonderful information you provide!

    This sounds wonderful, with two children 18 month apart it is difficult to lay everything out and get started. Of course, it doesn’t help I am a perfectionist…thus a sheet never gets done. Ok- I correct myself, 4 sheets have been done in about 3 years, paaathetic.

    I will take a look at this website. It would be a perfect program if it allows book printing for our families 2,000 miles away.

    Thank you so much for all that you offer my sanity!

    Paula Arms says

    I have never used digital scrapbooking software but I love scrapbooking and creating things on my computer so I’m sure I would love this. Like you I love printables and I can’t get enough of them!

  45. 45
    Colleen says

    I’ve never tried digital scrapbooking but have dabbled in regular old-style scrapbooking. Unfortunately, I’m a lot like you and although all of my supplies are nicely organized and color-coded… they don’t get much use. I much prefer to make things on the computer which is why I would LOVE to try out this software!

  46. 46
    Andrea says

    This looks like it could be a lot of fun to play with. Most my pictures don’t make it of fthe computer, so Iwould love to do something with all the great, unused pictures of my kids :)

    Teresa says

    I have done digital scrapbooking. My favorite thing is to make my kids autograph and passport books for Disney World!!

    I want to do digital scrapbooking. Waiting until I run out of all my other supplies LOL. But this sounds like a great tool. would love to win it. Thanks for reviewing. I wouldn’t have heard about it otherwise.

    Jodi D. says

    Digital Scrapbooking is definitely my cup of tea. I tried the whole regular scrapbooking and bought a bunch of supplies, but they just sit. I never have the time and energy to lug everything out. This would be perfect for me!

  50. 50
    Pino says

    Ive been dying to try digital scrap booking, but afraid I would just spend the money and never do it!

    I would love to win!!. This looks like a lot of fun.

    Kate @ Teaching What Is Good says

    Well, this sounds like fun! I’m always looking into creating my own printables but they never quite work they way I want to. I am NOT a crafty person…no scrapbooking for me. My daughter loves doing it though. She has one scrapbook software that is nice but very limiting. I’ve tried doing stuff with it but it doesn’t print…it’s only for online viewing, so I stopped playing with it. Count me in!

  53. 53
    Allison says

    This looks like fun, I have not tried digital scrapbooking.

    I’ve never ventured into the digital world of scrapbooking. I like that it would mean less clutter but still offer a lot of creative options.

  55. 55
    Cassandra D says

    I do some digital stuff…but i don’t always feel creative. But what’s nice with digital, is that I can test and mess around until i find just what I’m looking for without really messing anything up! Thanks for the chance.

  56. 56
    Amanda B says

    I have not tried digital scrapbooking before but I would love to try! It would be nice to be able to do everything on the computer and not have all the clutter traditional scrapbooking makes!

    Julie says

    I have been using MMS since 2010, the birth of my first born. I love it! It is addictive! MMS has TONS of free downloads too! Plus there are many websites that offer free downloads that are compatible with MMS software. I would love to win a free copy for my sister! She is getting married in October – I’m sure she would love her own copy to scrapbook her memories! Thanks!

    I have never ventured into digital scrapbooking, but it sounds right up my ally. I would love to start having an everlasting way to chronicle all of the memories I make. :)

    I’ve done a few scrapbooks the conventional way as well as a couple of photo books on the computer. I love creating these books, I could spend many, many hours on them – I would love to try digital scrapbooking one of these days!

    Anna says

    this looks pretty cool! I haven’t done much paper scrapbooking because I didn’t want to end up holding on to every little bit of paper but this looks like a lot of fun – and a lot less clutter. I’ll have to look into it a bit more.
    thanks for sharing!

  77. 77

    I would love this! I have tried digital scrapbooking, but so far haven’t been thrilled with any of the software, so I keep looking for something new while the pictures continue to pile up…

  78. 78
    Brenda says

    I’ve always wanted to try but feel so intimidated by so many possibilities (vendor ideas layouts) I could not decide and bowed out for a while. Just a few weeks ago I ventured back to google to try what’s out there!

  79. 79
    Mary says

    I haven’t done digital scrapbooking, but with all my pictures digital and not doing the paper scrapbooking since my last child was born (7 years ago) I need to get into it. I also lived abroad the last 2 years and have tons of pictures from our European travels and need to document it all while I can remember it.

    Anessa says

    I have not done scrapbooking on the computer yet, but I would love to try it; especially a tried and true product like this one. Wish me luck!

    Chris says

    I used to scrapbook all the time but I never seem to have the time since my kids have gotten older. I have looked into digital scrapbooking but did not what software to use. Thanks for this suggestion. Hopefully there is more scrapbooking in my future!

  82. 82
    Rachel says

    I have tried scrapbooking in the past but realized it cost too much to keep up with the supplies. I love scrapbooking though. I have been making photobooks through Shutterfly because it is easier plus it seems cheaper in the long run. I would love a digital scrapbooking software! How cool would that be?!?!

  83. 83
    Nicole says

    Have never tried digital scrapbooking. Like you, I enjoy organizing all the tools, paper, stickers & photos. After that I’m too tired to scrapbook our family memories.

    I haven’t ventured into the digital (or physical) scrapbooking realm, but I’ve envisioned it. Digital means a whole lot less clutter-potential!

  85. 85
    Our Many Adventures says

    I love to scrapbook but don’t have the time or the space to leave it out. I have wanted to get into digital scrapbooking for years but the perfectionist in me keeps me from picking a program to do it. I would love to be able to turn on the computer and work on a page for a bit without the mess and clutter.

  86. 86
    Destiny says

    The only digital scrapbooking I’ve done is two small photobooks form Snapfish. I’d love to give something like this a try!

  87. 87

    I would love this software. I did a little bit of digital scrapbooking a few years ago and have been wanting to get back into it. This might be the extra motivation I need to get started!

  88. 88
    Barbie Holt says

    I could use this to justify geting rid of the other clutter that I will never use!

    Gwenn says

    I played around with digital scrapbooking about 6 years ago but it was still pretty new back then and it was really lousy.

    I’m hoping to get started again now that its so much more advanced and there are so many choices!

    I have never used digital scrapbooking but the idea sounds great. The possibilities are endless and it will make errors and corrections easy to fix!

    I have been collecting digital scrapbook items for years, but haven’t put them to use…this would give me some confidence with scrap booking.

    Julie says

    I have entertained the idea of digital scrapbooking, but that’s as far as I got. I have about 3 pages done in my daughter’s scrapbook…she’s almost 9. I feel so bad I haven’t even started my 4 yr old son’s. I think digi-scrapping just might be the ticket for me and my perfectionism curse. :) Love your blog!!

    Lynne B says

    I’ love to try it. Photo books made online is the extent of my digiscrapping skills.

  111. 111
    Christine says

    I would love to be a digital scrapbooker. I have so many sizzix pieces and paper and tools that take up one whole wall in our office and I no longer have the time because I am working. I have 3 teenagers, one who is leaving this summer for college, but they still need pictures! I would totally donate all my scrap gear if I won.

  112. 112
    Anne says

    I would love to try this. I “traditional” scrapbook when I have time but it’s such a paindragging everything out, etc when I actually have time to do something. I have been wanting to try digital scrapbooking but haven’t known how to start. This seems like the answer to a prayer!

  113. 113
    Grace A. says

    I’ve always been interested in digital scrapbooking. I vowed one day to make one of wedding day stuff… FFwd two years later, baby#1 on the way in 2 months and now seems like a perfect time to get software to make scrapbooks of what will be a photo flood the next couple of years.

  114. 114
    Debbie says

    Thanks for this opportunity! I think I’d like this. I haven’t done digital scrapbooking but have thought about it. I used to do traditional scrapbooking but it got time-consuming and expensive. Haven’t picked it up in years. I much prefer to work on the computer so I could see myself having fun with this!

  115. 115
    Maria says

    Wow, I had never heard of digital scrapbooking until I stumbled across your blog while looking for ideas on making a recipe binder. I am not a big scrapbooker, but love the idea of being able to make create printables for my other “creative” projects without all of the clutter, or my toddler stealing my embellishments. I would love to try out my hand at digital scrapbooking so thanks for the chance to enter!

  116. 116
    Michelle says

    This would be wonderful to receive! I’ve been trying to scrapbook, but I think if I could do it “digitally” it would be better.

  117. 117
    Kelly C says

    I haven’t begun my digital scrapbooking because I want to finish up these last two paper scrapbooks I am working on. Then after that I plan to do all digital. I think its the only way to go these days.

    I have yet to try digital scrapbooking, it’s intimidating! I’d love to win – good luck everyone!

    Samantha Suthoff says

    I have not tried digital. However, I have a little corner in my basement that is full of the traditional supplies. I love scrapbooking, I am a bit behind since the birth of my daughter, well, almost 4 years ago. I think digital could catch me up faster than the traditional method. I would love to give it a try!!

  120. 120
    Pam says

    I have only done digital scrapbooks on traditional photo sites like Shutterfly. I absolutely love the way the books turn out and it makes such a treasured keepsake. I’d really like to give the digital software a try considering I have yet to start even one baby book for my three daughters:)
