My Memories Giveaway!


When I was presented with the opportunity to play with fun new software AND give a copy of that software away to one of my readers, all for free, I thought it might be to good to be true.

Was it?

No, indeed!

Not only do I get to give one of you fabulous people free software, I have a coupon for $10 off of cool crafty, and super-reasonably priced software for every Sewhooked reader!

That’s a win-win situation!

My Memories is scrapbooking software. Now, I’ve never been much of a scrapbooker in real life, but I love digital photo manipulation. I’ved used online solutions through stores with photo processing and such to create cards and photo books, and I have to admit, this is way, way cooler. It’s a crazy versatile software that allows you to do all kinds of cool things with your photos.

I have oodles (and oodles!) of digital photographs. Up until about 2005, I kept them in tidy albums, organized by dates. Then this weird thing happened.

I got my first digital camera. ..

At first, I continued to have my photos printed, but eventually, I realized I was taking way too many pictures to do that. So I began archiving them on a multitude of discs, then eventually on an external hard drive. Have I gone back to dig out those discs and look at those photos? Do I regularly visit my million and one photo files?

Sadly, no. I have thousands of photos that are just sitting, collecting virtual dust instead of being easily accessible. So what the heck, why not try a little digital scrapbooking?

Of course, the first thing I did after downloading my spiffy new software was to download all the FREEBIES! Free paper designs, templates, cards, gift tags and, and, and! What? I like free!

Once the freebies were installed, I started playing.¬†Papers and embellishments and text, oh my…

My darling daughter’s Sweet 16 Birthday.

Once I started playing with My Memories, I had a really, really hard time stopping. ¬†It’s super easy to use, and after just a little trial and error, I got the hang of where most everything was. There are all kinds of cool¬†embellishments¬†and such built in to the software (note the spiffy pencil and clips in the image below) and the software accesses your font library, so if you have a million and one fonts like I do (DaFont¬†free fonts for the win!), the text options are endless.
