Have you noticed how quiet I’ve been for the past week? (Please don’t ruin my ego by saying no here.)  Well I’ve been busy having fun.

Christmas cardChristmas is coming, so I’ve made some of these

and because Christmas is a time for parties, I've done some of these63737331bthen, because every home should have one, I’ve designed some of these

and, because it’s my birthday in January, I made myself one of these48317037b

I did all of these using some great software, called MyMemories Suite. This is called Digital Scrapbooking software, but, as I have found, it is so much more than that.  Apart from what I have shown here, you can also use it to make all sorts of great things like photo books (think what a fun way that would be to keep pictures of all your quilts) and you can print all these things as well as having them on your computer, so you could make loads of wonderful personalised gifts for people. I made all of the above with just what came in the original software, although there are loads of other kits you can buy on their website. I have spent a lot of time playing with this software, and have found it really is very easy to use.  I can see a lot more playing in my future!

I showed a banner at the top of this post that might have given you a clue about a giveaway,  so I expect you want to know what you have to do to win a copy of this great software don’t you?

  1. Yes, things have been quiet - everyone is in a panic to get Christmas gifts done! Don't put me in the give away as this is not something I would use but it does look like fun.

  2. I would use the Season's Greetings Designer Pack. Beautiful!

  3. Looks like you've been busy. Cute projects.

  4. so that is what you have been up Lovely projects. I have been toying with this program and whether or not to get it. The farm pages are really cute

  5. S'more snowmen would make really cute cards.

  6. You clever girl, if only I could have achieved so much this week ...

    I do have Christmas Cards sitting on a table by my chair with the optimistic idea that I will sit down one afternoon soon and write them. As the builders/kitchen fitters/electrician and plumbers are moving in on Monday, I'll need more than optimism!!

  7. Hi Sue! I have noticed your absence from bloggy land. It is good to know what you've been up to! I wanted to give you a heads up that Lone Star Saturday is up and running! Have a great day!

  9. Deck the Halls is pretty...I've never used software to scrap or make cards. Perhaps I need to move into this brave new world!

  10. I think I'd use 12 Days of Christmas, but Season's Greetings is gorgeous as well!

  11. I see why you have been MIA - love your creations and I would love to play with this software too!! I think that I would start with making a personal calendar for the new year!

  12. We could have some great fun designing in our house:)
    Looks like a lot of fun and I like the idea of making quilt albums. Love what you have designed,
