My Memories Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

 I LOVE digital scrapbooking so much! It has really helped me to preserve my memories, create a personal history, and also just have a creative outlet! I started with paper scrapping, and really loved it, but hated to use embellishments, because they could only be used once. I was super picky, and mostly ended up paper blocking and doing cute lettering.

Then, I decided to try digi scrapping. The old programs out there just were not very good. They never had content that I wanted. But, since then, things have improved drastically and I found an amazing program!  I am talking about MyMemories Suite.  There are so many unique and wonderful features in My Memories Suite! 
These are two scrapbook pages that I have done with MyMemories Suite. First of all, the program comes with a TON of different kits, and they are SO cute! Then, you can buy kits from the My Memories website, if you are like me and can never, ever have enough paper and embellishments! The page of my daughter is done with Fran B's "Turple Peal" kit and the page of my son is FayETTE Design's "From Struggles to Strength".
Not only can you do scrapbook pages, but all sorts of hybrid projects and I even posted a freebie for some super cute hearts that you could make. The possibilities are really endless. You could  make invitations to an event, photo books, cards, videos! Can you believe it can make videos? Geesh! Totally amazing!
Here are some of the fun features!
The first two things I am going to show you are super fun! You can RIP paper! This is a totally unique feature and I was super excited about it! Also, you can create WORD ART. The options are endless! And I LOVE that you can outline text, which really gives it a boost! It uses all the fonts on your computer, which is a big plus, especially if you are a font fanatic like me!! (Kit for above: Arizona Girl's "Refreshing")
Next up, you can add SHAPES to your projects! Not only can you add shapes, but you can add PAPER or photos to your shapes on top of just being able to recolor them, which was so exciting to me. I thought the variety on the shapes was HUGE (this is only a part of them).  Let's just say, being able to add papers to the shapes was a huge bonus for me! (The above page and next few pages use Arizona Girl's "Keep Calm and Berry On" kit)
Next they have recolorable MONOGRAMS. Seriously, this was awesome! I put a lot of them on here, but there are a bunch more. You can add all these shapes randomly, or create a background for your page using these. Totally amazing feature! I thought they were super cute, and to recolor them just takes a second. You can even pick colors from your page!
FREE Calendar options! Totally customizeable. Need I say more?
Don't laugh. I am totally not an artist! BUT this could be super fun for some people! Three brush tips, recolorable, and you control the brush size!
And one of the last features I am going to tell you about is the way you can edit your pictures! These are the different options you can use, and let me tell you, I use these a lot. It is super basic, but sometimes a picture just needs a little help to look good or add an artistic flare to your project!

I love that you can reuse embellishments a million times if you want! I love that there are layout templates for days when I am stuck in a rut, or need to pump pages out quick! I love that elements are easily manipulated on the page. I love that I can use my kits from other sites (because I have a ton, and it would be a big turn off for me if they weren't compatible-luckily they are and it is super easy)!  I just love it all!

MyMemories Suite is super user friendly. Also, if you are having troubles with a feature, they have really great tutorials to check out. I really love this digital scrapbooking program! So easy to use, my pages look good, and it has a lot of wonderful features.

And, best of all, I get to give one of you lovely readers a copy of MyMemories Suite Version 4 and $10.00 in their store, a $50.00 value!  YAY! I am super excited about this! Just fill out the rafflecopter below:
