Giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Laura–lucky number 28!
Today I am wrapping up your memories in a box with ribbon and handing them to you. You’re welcome. Let me start off by saying, I am not a scrapbooker. The thought of cutting out pictures and adding a slew of embellishments is not my cup o’ cider. I am more of a minimalist. I like a clean, crisp, white background for my photos and neatly, handwritten captions–even better: typed (It drives my sister nuts). I’ll pass on the ribbons and foam sunglasses and buttons glued on the page. So, yeah, I’m not a scrapbooker. But, any time photos are made into scrapbooks or calendars or announcements–I melt. No matter how you store your memories, I think it is most important to keep them. Dress ’em up. Keep is simple. Add a soundtrack. Whatevs. I am a strong believer in creating memories and keeping them handy to look back on.
is giving one of our readers their complete My Memories Software Suite. It’s an award winning digital scrapbook software
that is extremely easy to use. My Memories Suite
helps anyone create digital scrapbooks, cards, calendars, etc. without having to buy expensive programs and then learn how to use the software. Because this blog is one HUGE memory, I started toying with the idea of “scrapbooking” (I’m actually scrapbooking–gasp!) it all into one book with My Memories Software
. Plus, I had to show you some examples. Chris laughed when I showed him the first page I did:
“Babe. It’s very…you. But doesn’t really show off all the features.” He’s right. The software allows you to choose from their templates that are full with digital embellishments and colors and creative pages for backdrops, or you can create your own. At first, I stuck with what I knew I liked–white and clean. And then I started adding some colors and patterns to step out of my how-I-like-my-photos comfort zone:
Are those dotted-ring embellishments? Why yes they are. Baby steps, friends. And if you really like the traditional, crafty, scrapbook look, they have ready-made templates that you can add to, or just plop your pictures in and call it done:
