I've never created a scrapbook before. For one, I’m not very artistic. I can’t cut a piece of paper in a straight line if my life depended on it.  I’m having a hard enough time finding space for my soapmaking supplies, let alone finding room for special papers, punches and other materials that are needed for scrapbooking, but when I received an email from the makers of My Memories digital scrapbooking software, asking if I’d review their software and host a giveaway for a free copy of the software, they had me at ‘free giveaway.’ My customers and blog readers are the best and if someone wants to give them free stuff, who am I to argue?

On the plus side, My Memories was very easy to set up and install. The program comes with a bunch of templates for a variety of occasions.  If you don’t like the templates that come with the program, you can purchase additional templates on the MyMemories website, or design your scrapbook from scratch. Adding photos is easy. Simply drag & drop your photos onto the page. Like a traditional scrapbook, you can print out your digital masterpiece and save it in book form. For something really cool, you can share your scrapbook via iTunes Video iPods, iPhone, Apple TV, or compatible devices.

As a first time user, I did not find the software very intuitive. I found a template with the perfect sentiment for the scrapbook I wanted to create, but hated the colors. Unfortunately you can't change the colors of the templates. Another major drawback is when I wanted to save my scrapbook as a video. I had to download and install additional (free) software. I found this to be very time consuming.

Here’s an example of a video scrapbook I made of an Indie Beauty event held in January.
