Crazy Sweet Tuesday & My Memories Giveaway

Pin It
Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where desserts rule the day!

Thank you for coming to Crazy Sweet Tuesday! I have one more giveaway for you, and I'm super excited about it.

I used to scrapbook - a lot. I did it the old fashioned way for a long time; lugging out the cutters and paper and boxes of photos. Then, a few years back, I discovered digital scrapbooking. And it was like the sky opened and angels sang. No mess to clean up! No dangerous tools to keep away from little hands!

While I do create photo books and 12x12 page prints occasionally, hands down my favorite thing to do with digital scrapbooking software is to create printables: invitations, cupcake decorations, tags, and signs. Once you start creating, the options are endless.

When My Memories contacted me and asked if I'd like to be an affiliate, I jumped at the chance. I recently got a new computer, a mac, so the old software I used was not compatible. I was super excited to get my hot little hands started!

What's really cool about this digital scrapbooking software is it comes with tons of papers and embellishments already installed. You don't have to buy anything extra if you don't want too. And the My Memories site has tons of freebies.

If you've been reading some of my posts lately, you've already seen some of my creations in action.


I made the "Smart Cookie" tags and the "Popping By" tags with the My Memories Suite. All with papers, frames, and embellishments that came free with the software!

Today is Jordan's first day of school, and as the head of the Hospitality Committee, I am in charge of organizing snacks in the teachers' lounge this week. I don't just like to drop the snacks and run - I like to leave a little something pretty for the staff to look at. I made this subway art to place on the table. (And, yup, I made it with My Memories!)


{Want it for yourself? Click here for the printable.}

Okay, so now for the fun part. My Memories is offering Crazy for Crust readers a super deal! Want the software? Of course you do!

Buy the My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software and enter the code STMMMS18039 at checkout and you will receive $10 off your purchase AND a $10 coupon for the My Memories store! That's a $20 value. Just be sure to enter that code.

But wait. Before you run screaming to the My Memories site...you should enter to WIN your own copy of the software! Because My Memories is giving away one free software package to a lucky Crazy for Crust reader!

The software works on PC or Mac. It's downloaded so no shipping needed...so it's open to anyone!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck!

Okay. Whew. That was a lot of pre-party fun!

Let's start with the features from last week:



Salted Hot Fudge Brownies by Kristin's kNook.
Mocha Cupcakes by Shugary Sweets
S'mores Cake by A Sweet Baker
S'mores Truffles by Mommy's Sweet Confessions.

And the most clicked sweet was another tie! Obviously you all have a thing for marshmallow treats (which I totally understand!)


Malibu Rum Fruit Loop Treats by Averie Cooks.
Cinnabon Roll Rice Krispie Treats by The Spiffy Cookie.

Than you all for linking up last week. Can you believe that this party is almost a year old? That's right...next week is CST's first birthday! WOW! And thank you!

Let's start the par-tay!




Thanks for linking!

This giveaway is sponsored by My Memories. I recieved a free copy of the software to use and review. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

I wait until Winter to do my scrapbooking. I just don't have time to devote to it during the summer. I'd rather be outside in the sunshine during the summer. So, while I'm trapped inside during the winter, I'm working on the past year of photos!
Thanks for hosting :)

I love that we all love desserts so much :) and we should totally scrapbook together! I want to create a bloggy scrapbook of all my favorite photos and recipes... maybe give it to my grandma for xmas since she doesn't have a computer and thus has zero idea of the things I've made.

I loved the wine tasting album template - we took a trip to Napa - so it would be perfect to use for those photos!
