When My Memories contacted me to ask if I’d be willing to try out their scrapbook software, write about it and then give away the software to one of my readers… I was super excited! Why? Because this software is easy to use and can be really helpful for teachers, too.

Ways to Use My Memories While Teaching
Of course you can use the My Memories scrapbook software for your own family and friends… But you can also use it for teaching.
Here are a few ideas I came up with after playing with the program tonight:
- Classroom Memory Book – Play the slideshow on your classroom computer when parents visit your classroom. E-mail it to parents at the end of the year.
- Calendar Gift for Parents
- Cards for Parents or the Kids
- Classroom Movie – Maybe a butterfly release celebration, show your math, science, writers’ or readers’ workshop activities in action.
There really is so much we can do with My Memories scrapbook software.
Easy to Use with Your Digital Photos
I used to love scrapbooking, but it seems like I just don’t have the time to sit down and cut and paste everything in a scrapbook like I used to… Well, before I had kids of my own. With a 4-year old and a 3 month old you can imagine how many photos I’ve got on my iPhone without a single one printed since the baby has been born. Finally, something to force me to get organized and create a scrapbook that our family will treasure for years to come. I’m sure many of you can relate to this lack of time and huge amount of photos on your iPhone or computer that you just don’t have time to organize.
Fast and Fun Scrapbooking
See the scrapbook page up there? I actually created it in 20 minutes with my 3 month old baby asleep on my lap on a boppy! I’m not kidding. (She’s still on my lap while I type this.) My Memories software is so much easier than regular cut and paste scrapbooking because I can upload the digital photos I already have on my computer. I don’t have to print photos separately… Plus, I can make a movie, calendar or even a card. You can even add music, if you’d like to. There’s so much we can do with the software and it’s really easy.
