Hallmark Software Giveaway

Buying holiday cards can be expensive. One way to save money would be to make them yourself. I don’t really have the time to make cards myself. I have two kids, babies as a matter-of-fact. I’m up to my ears in poo poo some days. I’m sure all moms feel this way.

Hallmark Card Studio Deluxe 2009 has been released and is ready to save us money and time. I was given a copy to review. This is a great software package for making cards. They also have a scrapbook making studio.

Features listed from their website:

  1. Photo Cards and Photo Calendars
  2. Animated User Interface
  3. 3D Cards and Projects.
  4. Easy to Use!
  5. A tutorial gets you started fast.
  6. 9,000+ Hallmark Greeting Cards and customizable projects
  7. 16,000+ Spectacular Graphics
  8. Search projects by design theme or occasion.
  9. Complete Hallmark sentiment library

It is so easy to use this software. I installed it, the installation took a while, but look what all had to be installed. I didn’t even need the tutorial because it was so easy to use. I found being able to search the projects and graphics by theme or occasion to save me even more time. I picked a Thanksgiving Holiday theme and was able to change everything I wanted to change. I was able to easily change the sizes of the graphics and tilt them in any direction I wanted to. I chose a heart and I rotated and was able to put a picture of my kids in it. Simple.

I have Photoshop, and I find it difficult to learn how to use. I have used it in the past because that is what we have.

Pick your project, design it and print it.

    I’m lovin’ their Hallmark Scrapbook Studio 3.0 Deluxe…a fabulous bargain at under $30.

    I also love the Forum and Support areas. Its great to know that if you have a question with the software that you can find help from another user or a support person. Now that is what I call customer service.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  3. Tammy says

    I like the 4×8 photo cards, like the kind the stores print…I made 4x6s this year on my own, but would have preferred the 4x8s

  4. memetu says

    Hallmark Software looks right for my family who likes to incorporate photos in all correspondence. My daughter has an interest in card making and I want to steer her to the “right” program.

  5. Amy says

    I also have Photoshop, and find it beyond difficult to use. My very first purchase for my first computer was a hallmark card program. I would also like to have the scrapbook software. You know, their site was really easy to navigate – always a plus when I am shopping or just surfing.
    Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway! Happy Holidays to One and All!!!!

  7. Heather says

    Their site was very easy to navigate. I like that if you happen to have any problems, you find help easily with technical support and the user forum being at the top of the page.
