My Gift to You: A Giveaway


This blog started out as a digital scrapbooking blog (which is why it's named These are the Moments -- after the chorus of the Edwin McCain song I Could Not Ask for More -- and not something like They Whine so I Wine or Instant Mom!  Just Add Vodka!).   But, yes, once upon a time it was a scrapbooking blog.  Then Karis came along and my Kid Count went up to three (sometimes four) and my "me time" became non-existent and it seemed more important to shower than to sit down at the computer, pull up Photoshop and start preserving our memories.

I was recently given a copy of My Memories scrapbooking software to try out.  And *gasp* I created a scrapbook page!  For the first time in nearly two years!
Cute, huh?

The scrapbook software comes loaded with tons - tons - of premade templates.  Even premade albums!  These pages right here?  They were made using the templates in a premade album.  It was literally just click-and-add.  So easy and pretty quick too! I did two pages while my kids were watching Super Why on Monday and two more while they watched on Tuesday:
{All above pages were created using the Connie Prince kit "North Pole Express"}

Here's what's cool about the MyMemories scrapbook software:
    • It is VERY easy to use.  Very.  Using one of the premade templates, even the most novice of scrapbookers could sit down and crank out a page in a very short amount of time.  It's that easy!
    • The software comes preloaded with lots of kits, papers, elements, you name it. 
    • You can create so much more than just scrapbook pages.  Calendars, cards, videos!  I love that the program has an option to add sounds and videos to what you make.
    • It's cheaper than Photoshop.  And dude.  We're all about the cheaper.
Here's what I didn't exactly love about the program:
    • It's not Photoshop.  You can't go in expecting Photoshop.  There are definitely some comparisons -- some great comparisons.  But it has limitations.  However.  It's also much more user friendly than Photoshop.
    • Ummm . . . uhhhh . . . that's it!
All in all, I'm a fan of My Memories.  Like I said, it's not Photoshop.  I haven't been able to figure out a way to, like, make a ribbon wrap through words or anything like that because there's no eraser tool.  But this program is perfect for simple and fast scrapbooking.  I LOVE that it has so many premade templates.  And I think it's possibly the best program for a beginning scrapbooker or someone who doesn't have a great deal of time to scrapbook.
