This is my first My Digital Studio Card! I have owned this software way too long without doing more than making a sketch or two with it. So, I decided while I have some extra time, I'd learn how to use it. This is a great time to do it, too, because Stampin' Up has a 25% sale on their digital download categories-
Photobooks & Swatchbooks
For my card, I used the Convention 2011 Designer Template Photobook template. I love the Photobook and Swatchbooks and Ensembles because you get lots of goodies with them. I didn't go to that SU Convention in 2011, but that didn't stop me from loving the digital papers, embellishments, stamps, and colors, so I got it anyway! It's so easy to change things if you need to in MDS that I know I'll get lots of use out of it. My flower petals, leaves, and the word "Grow" were all a part of the embellishments in this kit. All I had to do was arrange them in a flower pattern, add my leaves and words, and my card was on the way! I also used the Mixed Bunch digital stamp set which came in the MDS2 digital studio software. You can get over $500 of papers, stamp sets, punches, photo books, embellishments, and page patterns for just $20.00! It's a fabulous deal. I changed the color of the stamp to match my flower and it created the center of my flower. Lastly, I added a Rich Razzleberry brad from the Original MDS software for a small pop of color.
It was so simple to make the major elements for my card that I couldn't believe I had waited this long to use the My Digital Studio software! The MDS blog anwered tons of my questions and has great videos to show how to create different projects. It's at www.mydigitalstudio.net.
From now on, Monday's on my blog will be My Digital Studio Mondays so you can see the projects I create as I learn more about this awesome software.
Can't live without it anymore? Let me know and I'd be happy to order software or downloads for you!
