Playing with MDS

So here is a card I made with MDS. I had them printed in 5 x 7. I used many elements the program provides so I have a good idea of how my projects will look and what else I can do with them.

The second card here is also 5 x 7. I made this basic design so I can add everything I want. I can see how this will save me from using my favorite papers so sparingly (you know what I mean). I cant wait to get my hard copies to show everyone!
Next stop.....albums.
FYI, everything made with the MDS has to have SU! copyright info somewhere on it. The MDS does come with copyright stamps you can add right onto your projects.

My Digital Studio

Well, it finally got My Digital Studio. I am thrilled. I never saw myself using a digital scrapbooking system but the My Digital Studio is so much more. Notice my new banner, all done with MDS (my digital studio). It's placement needs help but that it due to my lack of computer know how. In just the few days I have owned the system I can see how useful and fun this tool can be. I am planning on making my Holiday cards using the program, calendars, scrapbook pages and more. Versatility is it's biggest draw. If you have worked with me before you know I am big on making my products go the extra mile, of fnding new and unique ways of using all my SU! products. I can do that with MDS, and quite simply too. Now, don't get me wrong this will not replace my cardstock, ink, stamps or tools by any means but it will compliment them in every way. I have discovered hybrid paper crafing. I can have several cards made with MDS and then add to them my own ribbon, stamps and hardware. I also love to explore new color combinations, with my digital studio I can do that without ever cutting my paper. I can create a card layout on my computer and when I love how it looks I can go and create the same card using my regular products. Now, I know you want to know about getting your projects created. You can either print everything at home, have them created through the SU! printing company, or even get them printed from your own favorite printing company. It is up to you. The benefit of using SU!'s printing company is that you will always be sure to get the exact SU! colors every time. I just wanted to give you all my take. I will continue my product research and report back as I find more things I can do with MDS. It will be a tough job but I am up for the challenge ;). Happy Stampin' Tricia
