Digital Scrapbooking Software


For me, starting out, finding software, was a major issue.  I didn't know where to even start looking.  There are so many different options and they all have their pros and cons.  I can't even begin to share all the different options.

If you are just starting out, (which I am going to assume you are, if you are looking for Scrapbooking Software), here are 3 options that have been awarded some high marks.


My Memories Suite 9, is compatible with both Mac and PC. It comes with 465 free kits – a wide range of templates and embellishments to start off your scrapbooking projects. Additionally, there are over 20,000 kits available for purchase on the company's website if you want more options for an everyday theme or special occasion. Our testers agreed that MyMemories offers quality designs that look modern and are varied enough to work for many different occasions. This software allows you to work with different page sizes so you can determine how large or small you want the scrapbook to be. However, you cannot add videos, links or music to your albums. -from http://www.toptenreviews.com/

It is a very easy to learn program that actually will surprise you at all it can do. I feel that it is a great product for the price, and You can even use the coupon code posted here and get $10 off your purchase!! (I just love great deals!!) Coupon code: STMMMS13734 (just copy and paste it at the check out)There are also lots of great tutorials that are easy to follow.  My Memories Suite 9, gets the "Best Overall Award".


Memory Mixer 4 is designed for both Mac and PC. It gives you a lot of tools and convenience for your money. It comes with 236 kits installed on the program, but you can find 9,000 additional kits for purchase on the company's website. According to our testers, this program had the best template and embellishment designs of any other program we tested. You will find that these designs are stylish, modern and provided a wide range of color themes. This program doesn't offer any paintbrush tools or text effects, so you cannot create your own graphics. This is the only software that allows you to add video and links to your digital scrapbooks as well as music. -from http://www.toptenreviews.com/

Memory Mixer 4 was given the "Best Budget Award" in the review.

iScrapbook is a great option designed specifically for Mac. It will seem very pared down next to MyMemories in most ways. It has a much smaller selection of included kits, and while the online store offers more than 1,500 purchasable kits, it is still less than what many other companies offer. However, the graphics that you do have access to are very impressive, and this software makes it easy to share your projects on social media. This program is the only one that provides typography tools so you can add plenty of text effects to your projects like kerning, or placing text on a curve. http://www.toptenreviews.com/
iScrapbook was given the "Best for Mac Award"  in the review. 

The only one of these programs that I have had experience with is MyMemories Suite.  When you use the $10 off coupon, it ends up being the same price as the Memory Mixer 4 software!!  So In my book that wins it "Best All Around" and "Best Budget"!   

These are just 3 of the many, many options out there.  If you are interested in some more in depth reading, you can check out this article on Top Ten Reviews. (and no, I'm not being paid anything by that website!)
