My Memories Suite – Mama Buzz Review

 

image

I have been scrapbooking since my son was about 2 years old.  He is now 11.  The only problem is that I really did a lot when I started and then I simply ran out of time to work on this very important stuff.  I also have spent enough to feed a small army on all of my supplies. 

So, for several years I have been wanting to start digital scrapbooking.  I was kind of scared but when My Memories Suite was on the list to review, I was super excited. 

This is a digital scrapbooking program that is so easy to use.  The image program itself comes as a download (it is pretty large, so make sure you have room on your computer).   I choose a simple layout to try first because I didn’t want to be too overwhelmed.  It was so easy to drop and drag pictures from my computer that it almost seemed too easy.  There are hundreds of layouts to choose from including embellishments, styles and papers for every area of your life.  I was surprised to see the  number of different layouts.   You can also design your own.  How cool is that?   I loved the word art feature that allows you to design your own text themes.  

You can also purchase additional page templates, packs and extras after your initial download.  I found that even if I purchase these extras and include the price to print the pages, I will save so much money doing digital scrapbooking than the traditional way. 

The company also gave me a $10 gift certificate to spend on additional items and I can’t wait to get more embellishments to use with the program.   They were very generous. 

I picked a fall colored theme and put in pictures of my kids at the image pumpkin patch.  I had no problem adding “brads” and “stickers”. 

The price is only $39.97 and includes:

  • Over 1500 all new digital papers
  • Over 1300 all new page embellishments
  • Over 30 all new album templates

The download was incredibly easy to do but if this worries you, they have it available on a disk also.   There are also tons of free downloads. 

My Memories Suite has a Facebook page where you will find neat ideas and can meet fellow digital scrapbookers.    The FAQ page on their website is a great place to go to get answers to most questions

The best thing so far I have found with this company is the customer service is top notch.  They are willing to help and really want you to succeed at digital scrapbooking.  You can share your albums as beautiful hardbound books, watch them on a DVD, or print them at home.  My Memories Suite helps you keep all your memories, your pictures, videos, and music preserved in one place.  

If you haven’t gotten into digital scrapbooking yet, now is the time to do so.  I haven’t found an easier way than My Memories Suite. 

Please note I received a free copy of the My Memories Suite download version in exchange for my honest opinion in this review.   No other compensation was provided.  Thank you to Mama Buzz and My Memories Suite for this opportunity.

Looks awesome! I just started doing digital scrapbooking with Storybook and love it. Since all my photos are digital, it made perfect sense for me! Visiting from the crew!
