Create with MDS!
Hi Scrapping and Stamping Friends!!
I have another My Digital Studio 12x12 digital scrapbook page for you today. Have you heard me say how much I LOVE MDS?! I just can't stop playing around with it! Best part of all, there is no mess to clean up afterwards! Now if I only had a laptop, I could scrap while I'm waiting for kids to get done with practices and stuff!
I used the colors from the Create with Connie and Mary blog. The colors are Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Baja Breeze, and Chocolate Chip. This is challenge CCMC133. I made a card for this challenge last week. I have no idea how I knew about it ahead of time. Must have been on my blog roll or something. But I went ahead and made another project because I liked this color combo so much. Since I'm waiting for Sale-A-Bration before I download any new MDS stuff, it was tough to include Pear Pizzazz. Thankfully, Stampin' Up! offers free upgrades and they included some DSP with the new In-Colors. I made the Pear Pizzazz strips by using the 1.25" Square Punch and resizing it to the size I wanted, then adding some DSP as the background. The other digi stamps come from the Always set. They are included with the My Digital Studio software. Like I said, I'm working with bare bones here. I only have the original software. I've purchased NO downloads... yet!
This fabulous sketch comes from the My Digital Studio online community. It is a great place to be inspired by other amazing MDS artists. They have a weekly Saturday Sketch Challenge. This is ScrapSketch14. The other thing I love about the MDS site is I learn so much!! The forums are a great place to ask questions like, "How'd they do that?" I've gleaned some awesome little tips by surfing through this site. The only thing I haven't figured out how to do is "Group" objects. I really need to learn this technique, because I love layering embellishments, but I almost always end up moving them. Then I have to move each layer one at a time. It's pain staking! So if you know how to "Group" objects, let me in on the secret. Please!!
Make sure you stop back by tomorrow to see what we are celebrating at the Stampin' Celebration Challenge. I know you will "love" it! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping and Scrapping!
