If you scrapbook, I’m betting it’s hard to remember to put yourself into the photos or into the story! I know this was the case for me. I say, “was”, because I now am sure to scrapbook my life as well as my daughter’s!
Right now, my favorite scrapbooking tool is Stampin’ Up!’s My Digital Studio. (You might have heard me say that once or twice before–LOL!). As a formerly paper-only-why-would-I-EVER-want-to-scrap-on-my-computer,-UGH? girl, I was a bit surprised at how quickly and fiercely I fell in love with My Digital Studio.
Oh my goodness, I can play with images and text for as long as I want and not waste my pretty papers and embellishments. Because they are digital, there is a NEVER-ending supply!
I don’t have to clean up after I’m done and putting my supplies away is as simple as saving my layout and shutting down my computer. I LOVE this! I’m not the biggest fan of cleaning up… On the other hand, I AM a big fan of taking everything out while I find the perfect item for my layout.
Going to your in-laws for the afternoon? Bring your laptop and design there. If you look busy and harried and mutter about your bleepin’ boss and the project that needs to get done today, not even your mother-in-law will bother you! Teehee! Of course, if you have scruples and/or actually like your in-laws, you might not want to employ this tactic…
Forgot to print out the photos you needed? Don’t have the papers you want? No problem when you design digitally! Edit, crop and resize your photos to the exact size you need with My Digital Studio! Inspired to do some layouts of your baby (who’s now “sniff, sniff” 14-years-old!)? My online store and your order is a click away! Find-Order-Download-Create–Woot! Now, show it off to your friends! Really! I’ll wait.
The aforementioned mother-in-law loves the photo book you created about her grandchild and wants one of her own! (OK, maybe she’s not soooo bad!). A few clicks and you can have another one printed through my online store just for her. A caution…if you give one to your mother-in-law, you might as well print 2 because you know YOUR mother will want one, too!
So! Five reasons to fall in love with My Digital Studio. Did I convince you? Try it out FREE for 30 days or take the pretty shallow leap and buy it. For $19.95 you get many papers, stamps, embellishments and punches that come with it, so you can get designing right away! Once you’re comfortable, there’s a veritable treasure-trove of digital stamps, papers and embellishments in my online store! Speaking of being comfortable with it…send me an email if you want some help learning how to use MDS! I’m developing a quick tips sheet and would love to send you one!
Whew! Now for the 5 Things! In my effort to scrapbook myself, I created a layout that illustrates 5 things that are important to me right now! I used a new Stampin’ Up! kit called Old School September to create this layout. Enjoy!
Now, take a minute and take notes on 5 of your favorites! Jot them down so you can use them in your own layout!
