My Memories scrapbooking software blog candy


Congrats to Kym from 'Kym's Crafty Cards'!  Here is what Kym had to say:

Gale, you have made some gorgeous layouts. I would love to be in with a chance of winning this software as I would use it for scrapbooking but also for my cards that I make solely to sell to raise funds for different charities. Oh my goodness me where do you start to pick a favourite? My mum sadly died suddenly four months ago and I have bought a scrapbook album as we all went away together four weeks prior to her death - certainly not knowing what would happen four weeks later - and as we went to Skegness here in the UK it would have to be a seaside kit so I have gone for "Sunkissed Shores" as the colours, embellishments

 She is the winner of the FREE copy of
My Memories Suite 2 software!  I will be contacting you by email with the code to download your copy. 
Even if you didn't win, you can still use my code and get $10 off the download price.  You will also get a coupon for $10 off on a purchase of scrapbook kits on the My Memories site!

This post will stay at the top of my blog through the 20th
So, don't know if you noticed the graphic in the top right of my blog.  It is for a $10 discount for
My Memories scrapbooking  software.  I was approached (by email) about using the software and then holding a giveaway for a free copy and a coupon for everyone else.  The coupon drops the cost to$ 29.95.   The code to enter for your discount is  STMMMS30631

Wow.  Had no idea how many people there are out there that do digital scrapbooking (yes you can print or have your albums printed)!  I was also quite impressed with all the things that the My Memories v2 was capable of doing.  The web page was easy to navigate and the vidoes really iced the cake.  After reading and then watching 2 videos, I made an album of my son's visit to Oregon in January.  'Yes', the pics are still on my computer,' no' I haven't done anything else with them and 'no' I haven't even looked at them since either March or April! 
Here are some shots of what I did after about 20 minutes of research on the use of the program.







This is all digital, elements included!  Isn't it cool.  These are very simple layouts.  There are an amazing number of elements you can add if that is how you scrap!  Or, if CAS is your style, you can use a simple DP and just your photos.  It is all up to you!
Goodness knows when I might have actually done something with these photos!   You can also make IPod videos, DVD's, cards, put narrative and musical sound to your albums, make card fronts, etc.  I think it just depends on what you can dream up!

Next I decided to try and make a card.  I used a digi image from Dustin Pike that came in both
line drawing and in color.  I used that image rather than a photo.  I then used digital elements
to finish off the card.

I added some Glossy Accents on the "brads" and "button".
Their are stickles on the snowman and around the trees.  The card was printed
at 3 3/4 inches square.  It will be mounted on a 4x4 card.  Add a piece of ribbon and
a Christmas sentiment inside, one Christmas card done!

All of the papers and elements used in the scrap album and on this card either came with the
My Memories Suite 2 program or were freebies on the web! 

Now, for the prize.  One commenter on this post will win a free download of  the
My Memories suite 2 program from Polaroid!  All you have to do to win is go to the
My Memories website, look around, then come back here and leave me a comment telling
me what your favorite scrapbook kit on the site is. You MUST leave your comment on this
post by midnight PST on November 20, 2011.  I will randomly draw the winner on Nov. 21
for the free download!
