Putting My Personal Touch Into Digital Scrapbooking and a Give Away

Want to win some scrap-booking software?  Please read on...
In addition to the art and photography you see here on my blog, I have also started to do some digital scrapbooking and making photo books to celebrate milestones and special vacations.  When I was given the opportunity to check out a scrapbook software called My Memories Suite I decided to download it and give it a try.  I discovered that it's easy to use and I was able to  create these two pages quickly and easily.  The best part was that I was able to import my own background papers (the top one is a scanned image of one of the ones I recently made using stencils and paints, and the musical notes page was downloaded from Free Vintage Papers blog, a blog that offers free digi-papers and digi-stamps.  Look for Pamela's link on the right).

Of course My Memories Suite comes with it's own theme packs including backgrounds, layouts, and lots of fun extra like brads, buttons and ribbons so that you can simply drag-and-drop your pictures into the beautiful layouts they provide. Notice that fun thought bubble on the above page? That was as simply as clicking on the photo and then selecting the shape.  The software does the rest!  In addition to the themes that come with the software, there are additional theme packs available on their website for purchase at reasonable prices and there are also a bunch of them that are free!

So, here's the exciting part.  The folks at MyMemory Suite have given me an extra FREE copy for me to give away to one of my lucky readers (that's you!).  Here's what you need to do for a chance to win:

1. Go to MyMemories Suite and take a look at the theme packs;
2. Sign up to be a follower on my blog (or let me know if you already are a follower;
3. Leave a comment, letting me know which theme pack is your personal favourite.

Please sign up to follow my blog and leave your comment before the end of Friday, March 30th.  A winner will be randomly selected and announced in a blog post on Saturday, March 31st.  The winner will then have 5 days in which to contact me with their email address so that I can send them the necessary code to download the software at no cost.

For those of you who can't wait, you can use this code STMMMS18464 for a $10 discount on the purchase of MyMemory Suite (you get it for $29.95 instead of $39.95) AND you'll get an additional $10 gift certificate to use in their online store.  Simply copy & paste STMMMS18464 into the promo code box on the shopping cart page.  Use the link near the top of this page, on the right side, or click here.


  1. Oh, and I LOVE the "Artist within you" pack over at the My Memories Suite site. Too cute! And I really really need a new form of expression to get involved with - never enough time in the day!!! : )

  2. Penny, where did you find that? I don't see it.

  3. I love the Little Hamlet pack. Thanks for the giveaway, Linda!

  4. Well I posted on Mar 2nd, but no sign of it. Just said I am happy to make a new e-mail friend with similar likes.
    I am doing my Quilt Guild scrapbook this year in want to use mixed media, lettering and interested in My Memories Suite technique. After reading, it looks like I would need another basic program to use the above theme pack? Do you just add your pictures? No printing
    from another photo place.
    Thank and love your blog!

    1. With My Memories Suite, you can import your own photos, background papers, lettering, etc. You don't need any other software. Just take photos or scan your images in and you're ready to use them in your layouts. You can print the pages yourself or have printed (see their website for details). Alternatively, you could post the guild scrapbook electronically to the website (if your guild has one) or share it via email with the other guild members.

    2. Thanks Linda, Great idea and yes we have a web site.
