A special giveaway and a $20.00 deal!

Hi everyone.  I was given the chance to review a scrapbooking software called My Memories Suite.  I haven't had much time to play with it the past couple of weeks, but what little I have has shown me that it's got great potential not just for scrap bookers, but card makers too.

There are a lot of different background papers that you could just print out and use in card making, and I love how you can test out different lay outs before you actually make to the card to see if you like how the card is going to look.  There are so many different ribbons, and stitches and embellishments included as well as lettering!  Here's one scrapbook page I made using a photo of my best friend's granddaughter and new grandbaby.

Another thing that's cool is that you can print these out and put them in your scrapbook, or you can just have a whole digital album and add music and everything and send it to family and friends that way.  I think it would be a great start to print it out digitally and then if you wanted you could add real embellishments to enhance your scrapbook.  Anyway, the kind people at My Memories are going to let me give away one of these!  If you'd like to have the chance to win this, just go visit http://www.mymemories.com/ and then come back and leave a comment telling me which paper pack is your favorite.  I'll have a winner next Sunday!  If you can't wait that long and would like to just purchase the software today, you can save $10.00 on the software and get $10.00 toward anything at the My Memories store by using this code STMMMS95010 when you check out!  That's a $20.00 deal you can't beat!


We have rain this morning and I got all of my chores done yesterday so it's a fun day of crafting for me!  I hope you have a great day, and thanks for looking!

Very cute page. I've been "on the fence" about digi-scrapping, however a free program would be great! Especially if it came with Traci Murphy's So Boy papers. Thanks for the chance to try to win it.

Holly I have this program...isn't it wonderful. I love the page that you shared with us...as always:)
Holly, I will be having hip replacement surgery next month and I plan to use this program to "keep me busy" while in recovery. If you happen to get a case of "blogger block" anytime soon could you teach me how to use the WordArt feature on this program. I have never figured out how to do that on PSE either but perhaps its easier on this new program.
I know you are crazy busy so no biggie if you can't get around to it. Thanks for sharing all of your lovely creations with us...I really look forward to finding your blog in my inbox each day...thanks again:)

I haven't tried digital scrapbooking or card making yet but I have been seriously thinking of trying it. Maybe now is the time. They have so many beautiful kits. With getting ready for the holiday season, I would have to say my favourite is Jingle Bell Blues. Thanks for the chance to win and for always sharing your wonderful talent.

Hi Holly,

I like the Christmas Trimmings papers. With something like this, I would HAVE to actually use 27 years of the kids pictures! Especially for the eight year old who thinks there are NO pictures of her. :(

Thanks for a chance to win...

Holly -
I have attempted to enter a comment several times on your Oct. 23rd post - to no avail.
I noticed that you had 7 comments and now only 11. Perhaps your blog's provider is not working properly. You usually have numerous comments on a giveaway. You may wish to check it out.

Holly...this looks like some awesome software and I really like the idea of the mixing of digital and traditional scrapbooking. I really need to get back into scrapbooking with my 5 grandchildren! I really really like the Christmas Trimmings paper...specially since it is getting to be that time of year again and how handy they would be even to do cards! Thanks for the opportunity!

HUGS!
Vicki
