Oh, my, where has the week gone!!!?? I’ll tell you–it went somewhere while I had my head buried up to my ears in My Digital Studio projects!
What have I completed so far:
- A 12" x 12" scrapbook about our summer at Bear Lake, Minnesota (mentioned that in my last post)
- An 8" x 8" scrapbook about our late and much loved dog, Cedro.
- An 8" x 8" scrapbook about my trip to the mainland last May.
The two 8" x 8" scrapbooks are very different. Today I’ll share some of the pages about Cedro with you. Remember that everything on these pages is either built into My Digital Studio, or is a photograph that I uploaded into the program. Text is made with a built-in-text editor, but uses fonts that you already have on your computer. There are no fonts included in MDS. There are, however, "stamps" that are alphabets. I used those in making the cover of the Bear Lake Scrapbook I shared in my last post. The background color for this entire album is Kraft card stock, with a row of Whisper White stitching running along the bottom.
Most of the colors are standard Stampin’ Up! colors. The embellishment colors for the page are Not Quite Navy and Pumpkin Pie. One of the things that MDS lets you do is change the opacity of elements such as these, thus changing the color, as I did with all but the dark Not Quite Navy flower.
In the following page, I used the built-in color picker, and "picked" the two darker colors for the embellishments out of the outfit I was wearing in the upper left photo. Way cool way to do this!
For the next page I used some of the winter-themed MDS stamp sets. There are snow flakes in several different sets, and I was so glad to find something with which to use them (we don’t have much snow where I live in Hawaii!)
What fun it was to do this scrapbook! I loved being able to choose from so many stamps, embellishments and colors!
Tomorrow I take a different tack. I’ll be sharing with you some of the pages from a scrapbook I made using one of the built in Designer Kits that MDS offers. Completely different look!
I am so excited about this product, and I’ll be working hard to get my MDS certification as soon as we’re able to try for it. And then I’m looking forward to many of you buying this program and working to help you make the most amazing scrapbooks–in record time and with no mess in your craft room!
