Hi there stamping friends! I had a couple of questions from my post yesterday (about the online class- I said you don’t need My Digital Studio to download that), so I thought it was time to do a post just about our software program, read on. (there is a free download at the end of this post).
Have you tried or wondered about our wonderful digital software product called MDS (for My Digital Studio)? I have been using this amazing software for over 4 years now, and I have to say it is truly the BEST product out there for creating custom Scrapbooks (we have lots of different sizes/styles), swatchbooks, recipe books (have you ever wanted to create an Heirloom Family Recipe book??? I’m thinking of organizing one with treasured family recipes.
Before I was a demonstrator, I used to use other products and made MANY digital scrapbooks. I have even used some of the cheap online scrapbooks that are always on sale. Well you get what you pay for…. I’m not going to mention any of their names, because I don’t want to be negative, but what I can say, is from the very first album I made with Stampin’ Up!’s MDS, I fell in LOVE!! All the Stampin’ Up coordinating colors, stamps, papers, dies, punches, embellishments…. oh my goodness, it is so fun. Both of my nieces have made their own scrapbooks (with very LITTLE help from me), Jordan (she was 15 years old when she made her book) made a 12x 12 book for herself, and my niece Claire – she was 7 years old when she made a 8 1/2 x 11″ book for her Mom (my sister) for Mother’s Day last year. My nephew’s Blake and Ethan (they were five and four years old respectively, when they first used MDS) have helped make books too, and they all love to help create our annual family calendar. What an awesome gift to give your family members, you can personalize the dates and input all your family’s important dates. Last year I even put a little photo of the birthday person on their calendar square. (I’ll try to upload a photo of the calendar so you can see what I mean). Kids are so computer savy these days, and not afraid to create at all.
You can use MDS to make party favors, invitation, party decorations, flyers, notebooks, newsletters, recipes, advertisements, signs, bulletin boards, sign up sheets, do you need custom fancy signs for any purpose? You can make it in MDS. The best part is, we have a free website at My Digital Studio website and you can watch tutorials on You Tube (be sure you watch the ones made by Stampin’ Up and they are all marked “stampinvideo” and they have a channel you can subscribe to, and learn so much!
Here is a little intro video that shows you how simple it is to use MDS to create some fun party decorations:
