My Memories Suite – Designed for Scrapbooks

Posted on September 15th, 2009 by admin in Digital Scrapbooking Software, Online Photo Books

Can you really create a scrapbook in just minutes?

My Memories Suite, from Polaroid, has recently been voted #1 in scrapbooks, slideshow and photobooks. They lowered their prices to compete with the other leaders in this industry. That makes it a really good place to try out to make digital scrapbooking far quicker and easier.

This is created for anyone who doesn’t need or want to learn a really “hard” software program and just wants to do something with your photos and create memory books – for themself or for gifts. You can create a slideshow to share your photos online, too. If you buy it now you can use this coupon code for 10% off (through September):  Coupon Code: B2S10OFF

One thing I didn’t like about the website home page is that it isn’t friendly and I didn’t know what to click on. When I clicked on “Visit the Design Shop” at the bottom of the page. That page (where you can look at designs or search for things) made me feel more at home (go in to the store where you won’t feel put off by the sales pitch on the home page).

mymemoriessuiteThere are cards, calendars and lots of other nice looking designs in the store. But I went to check out the scrapbook software. This is a very inexpensive computer program to use for digital scrapbooks – and to get your scrapbooks printed or share them with others. Here are some details about My Memories Suite:
