My Memories Suite

I was asked to try My Memories Suite software and write a review. You know I am not a digi person. They have their place, I agree... but not in any of my books. Maybe a page here or there but I like the dimensions and the feel of real cardstock. I like layering and doing my own thing. However after playing with My Memories Suite I was impressed (and that is not the easiest thing to do).
When I first tried the digi scrapbooking software I was amazed with the designer pages that came with it. I then went to the "shop" where I found lots of other pages that were free or for purchase. Prices varied and were very reasonable...and when I say page, I really mean several. You are actually getting several pages and some even come with extra embellishments for you to use that match the pages. Downloading the pages for use was a breeze as they had a Wizard and put them in the software for you (if that is where you choose) or you can save in a file of your choice for future use.
Once you get into the software, even if you don't read the instructions, you can find your way around for the most part. However I suggest you watch the countless videos they have for doing different things such as manipulating a page, making a new page as a mirror image of a page you already have which comes in handy if you want a two page layout. If you can't find a video for what you want to do then just hop on the board and someone will answer your question. Of course you can always send a direct email and get your answer that way too. I have been dealing with Liz Gardner and she is such a big help. She can be reached at
The designer albums are beautiful. You can manipulate the pages as you wish. Add embellishments, another photo frame, change color (if the designer allows it), make more pages or delete pages.
Don't have time to put all the photos problem. Select the style of album you want open your photos and click "Fast Fill." Your album is done! All your photos are automatically added to the album you selected. (If you have more photos than what the album had on it's pages for pictures it will automatically repeat each pages of the album in order until all the photos are used.)
BTW....This is just not for scrapbooks either, it is much more. Here is a very quick video of it just so you get the feel for what can be done. Click Here!
The quality is superb! I can go on and on about it but why not check it out for yourself and if you decide to buy it then use code: STMMMS97740 (just copy and paste the code).

Below are the pages I did. These are designer pages that were free.

Still not convinced? Then don't forget to keep checking back here because one of my lucky followers will be winning a free copy of their own My Memories Suite!

  1. Great layouts! The black & yellow looks great. I'd love to try the digi layouts but am struggling to figure out how to do it PSE 7. Now I have PSE 9 & hope it'll be easier to figure out. TFS! doverdi Fiskateer #1329
