My Memories Suite Review & Giveaway and My Cookbook Giveaway

Giveaway STM_Email_Header_640
To kick off the festive season and to compensate you for not blogging and visiting your blogs, today I have two giveaways.
The first one is a crafty giveaway for all of you who love creating scrapbooks.  When Liz from My Memories Scrapbook Software contacted me to try out their program, almost two months ago, I was really excited.

 Happy Sunday-001

The delay in posting about it was because I have been extremely busy over the past weeks creating and publishing my Greek Cookbook “Kopiaste stin Kouzina Mou“.

Liz was kind enough to offer an extra copy for my readers, so , whenever I wanted to relax, I’ve been playing around and slowly getting the hang of My Memories Suite, a digital scrap booking software. My Memories Suite allows you to create scrapbooks, cards, calenders and has many uses for those who blog! I have one copy of the software rated #1 by Amazon to give away to one lucky reader as well as a copy of my e-cookbook.

Using this software, anyone can create digital scrapbooks, photobooks, any kinds of cards, calendars and gifts without having to buy expensive and complicated software programs.  The program works for both Windows and Mac.

As a food blogger I find it extremely useful and entertaining to create photo collages for my posts but also to create beautiful pictures and banners to post on Facebook.  All photos in this post have been created by My Memories.
For those of you who love doing weekly instagram posts, this software is perfect plus you can use it to create calendars with your food photography and even create a cookbook.  You can choose to print it through them or turn it into JPGs and go to other companies.

As I said, “My Memories” is giving away one copy of their software to one of my readers. To enter, please visit their website and tell me which of their kits you like.

My cookbook-002

I will randomly choose one winner for both giveaways on Friday 21 December, 2012 (don’t worry it won’t be the end of the world 🙂  ).  The giveaway has date has been extended to Monday December 24, 2012.  If you already possess my cookbook, I can send it to any e-mail you like stating that it is a gift from you.

    Hello Ivy, first of all my heartfelt wishes to you and your family this holiday season. It is a pleasure to follow your cooking blogs. For me memories and cooking go together. The smells, the foods from our mothers or grandmothers kitchen when we grew up. The family gatherings on a Sunday or giorti, or holiday stay with you always and those are the memories uou relive with your own family and kids.
    I wish you all the best and continuous success with your blogging and cook books.
