MDS for Dummies!

Yesterday I finally got around to downloading MDS (My Digital Studio - $24.95 AUD) and thought I would start off by using some ready made Designer Templates for a couple of 12x12 layouts just to get a 'feel' for the new graphics program.

I was so excited when I heard the news last week that MDS was on its way to Australia as well as on-line ordering.  Woo hoo!  I've never done a scrapbook page in my life except the little 6x6 samples that you do at Regionals or Convention but I have played around with digital designing so this was a bit of fun.

After a little 'play' this morning, I have discovered that navigating my way around MDS is going to be pretty easy as it is similar to programs that I have used before but the biggest plus is that I don't have to type in the RGB codes for SU colours and I have a wealth of Stampin' Up! embellishments, stamps, punches, templates etc. at my finger tips.  Gotta love that.

As I said previously, I have used ready made Designer Templates for these samples and have only added a bit of text and some pearls or brads which came with MDS - too easy and a perfect way to familiarise myself with MDS.



I'm sure I'll be back with some printed out cards to share pretty soon.  I'm enjoying this 'no mess crafting', lazy PJ morning  ;)

By the way, this is not an April Fool's joke.  The best things in life really are free.

Have fun!
