Picture Montage Using MyMemories Suite & A GIVEAWAY

I enjoy playing with materials and supplies, as I indulge in the variety of crafts you can find on this blog -- tatting, making teddy bears, ATCs, beading, ceramics and even quilting. One other thing that have caught my attention is scrapbooking. I love the idea of putting together favourite and memorable pictures, and decorating up the page! The only thing that stopped me from getting my hands on this activity was space! My library's exploding and there is no way I can contain more supplies either in my place.

Last week, I received a suggestion for me to try working with a digital scrapbooking software, MyMemories Suite v3. Now I can literally create my own scrapbook without any more physical clutter built up. How cool's that? The first thing that came to mind was to "show off" the recent gifts that my wonderful friends have sent -- a giveaway win, a present and an exchange.

To begin with, I was rather overwhelmed by all the backgrounds papers, embellishments, shapes and word art choices plus many other add-ons that come with the software. In addition, I could download some page designs, background papers, tags and embellishments for free! Spoilt for choices? DEFINITELY.

Thank you for these fabulous gifts! I love them and have started putting some items to use.
Most importantly, the program is really simple to use! I only need to choose the category I want, click on the favourite, and voila! Sizing and moving the bits of text, embellishments and evening changing colours or employing word art and shadows are really easy peasy.

How do you like my first attempt at the photo montage? I'm rather pleased with it myself. I will be using this to create more pages!

OK, that's not the only good thing.
The good news is: I have another MyMemories Suite software v3 to share with you, my awesome blogging friends! All you have to do is enter in this giveaway! Since it's the end of the 1st week of November, I shall keep this open till 30 November 2012. This will give everyone ample time to go have a look at the MyMemories website. All you have to do for a chance to win is comment once only on this blog. I'll have a random number generator draw the winner at the end of November.

A second good news is: For those of you who can't wait to get your hands on this software... Click on MyMemories Suite, add the software to your cart and put in this code (STMMMS53390). To avoid messy inputs, cut and paste this code directly into the given space. This will save you $10 on the price of the MyMemories Suite software v3 and a $10 coupon at the store ! I know you'll love it too.

Hope you are having a good weekend, and GOOD LUCK!


  1. This looks like fun, Val!
    Fox : )

  2. This looks cool Val. Count me in please. Thanks!

  3. Looks like you are in for a lot of fun with that software, great first attempt.
    But can it be as easy as you say?!!!
    Anyway love giveaways, so please enter me!

  4. Oh, I so desperately could use a program like this. I have all kinds of BRAND SPANKING new scrapbooking supplies in a storage tub that I've never used. Not even taken out of the boxes/plastic containers, etc that they came in. I just don't have room for it, but I'd love to do something with my pages and photos to display for my friends and family to see.

    The good news is that I'm usually around my computer because this is where I communicate, write my books/articles, instruct people in knitting, crochet, tatting and various other fiber arts and it's where I get my stuff done. So, to be able to put it all together online would only make sense.

    I'm going to go check it out. But, I hope that random number generator knows what number I am.

  5. This is exactly what I need for all my pictures. I could make them into a virtual scrap book and not worry about losing another pictures. I can't tell you hoe many precious pictures I've lost over the years due to moving around so much. All I'd need is a RW CD and I'd be in business by adding on photos and pages.

    Definitely going to go check out mymemories.com

  6. Cool! This looks great to use for my blog!

  7. Fun! I think I could definitely waste some hours playing with this. :o)
