This is my personal blog. I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and responsible for its content. Stampin' Up! does not endorse the use of or contents of the classes, services, or non-Stampin' Up! products I may offer here.
I don't write about all the MDS (My Digital Studio) very often...and I should. There is a lot of people doing digital work and it is amazing what they do. I am somewhat of an advanced beginner at this....I have played with it enough to know what I am doing, but there are some really clever ideas happening.
Every TUESDAY Stampin' Up! tries to release new downloads. What I love about these is that you can have them in an instant. You order them online and then you download them to your computer. So when you are working on a project (whatever time of day it is......) you can have them right NOW! Isn't that how projects go???
Here are some fun ones to pick from:
Besides images there are lots of downloads to choose from....like ribbons, buttons, papers, etc. Check it out and have fun looking! Remember you can get these immediately.
There is also a link at the top of my blog that will take you to the downloads.
Here is a scrapbook page that I made with the software.
Love this look..............it is quick to make and it looks great! I used the First Edition Designer Paper for a quick background layer. This package of paper can be used in so many ways. I tore the bottom right corner to make room for the RHINESTONES. The REAL RED flower is made with the FUN FLOWERS DIE. Not sure if you noticed...but I sponged REAL RED on the very edges on the flowers. I like the texture that it gives.
Here are the same supplies used to make a 12 x 12 scrapbook page.
Every Tuesday Stampin' Up! adds more downloads to their DIGITAL DESIGNING site. CHECK IT OUT. There are so many options on how you can use these. On page 6-7 of the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog it shows all the options. You can buy the software now in 2 different packages (the fully loaded DVD and a partial DVD) or you can buy different "suites" based on a certain theme. You don't have to have the Stampin' Up! software to use these. Your computer is packed with options. If you already have a digital program it may work just fine with your set-up.
The fun is that there are so many great downloads available to add a little extra punch to your project. You can add embellishments (like brads, buttons, ribbons), there is a stamp category with thousands of images, there is a paper category and so much more. My favorite stuff to browse are all the kits that they have done for us. This is like going through the drive through and getting the Happy Meal....it has everything you need. You just add your photos or your typing...and your project is done!
Here are some of my favorite picks:
A Year in Review...let's you do a scrapbook super fast.
Downtown Grunge - oh this is super fun to use!!!
Bridal Bouquet - a sweet bridal invite...you type in your info and print it :)
Graduating Class - perfect for those announcements
Little Book of Coupons - want to give a great gift? Give some coupons...
Today & Everyday - a perfect set of pages that are already for you to add photos!
The digital age is here! Check out all the fun things that you can add to your library of digital downloads :) Plus, there are more downloads added every Tuesday.
Have a great day! Lori :)
My son went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter with a group of friends. Can you guess which character he is?

This Simply Scrappin' Kit is available until the end of August. The color are fun and bright. They are PUMPKIN PIE, ROSE RED, DAFFODIL DELIGHT, and OLD OLIVE. All of the supplies in this kit are great for 12 x 12 projects...but everything can be cut down to be used for smaller projects too.
Here is a 6x6 scrapbook that was on display on our Alaskan Cruise. I don't know who the artist is...so if you do, please let me know :)
The front cover is absolutely beautiful with the stampin done on the linen cover, the ribbon and the added cardstock flowers. Wouldn't this be a lovely gift to give or receive?
These are all pieces from the Playful Polka Dot Kit. When you cut it down for the 6x6 pages you will have a lot of supplies.
All you need to do is add your photos and you have a beautiful album!
Also, check out the SPECIALS page. There is a GREAT Starter Kit promotion you don't want to miss. $99 to start your business or get a discount on the products you love so much. Plus there is an amazing project you are getting for FREE when you become a demonstrator this month. This special is only good until the end of the month. You will love my team and all the fun people on it. We do have a good time stamping together!
There is a great SCRAPBOOKING KIT in the SUMMER MINI CATALOG called Playful Polka Dots. You get 12 x 12 sheets of solid cardstock, designer paper, embellishments, and self-adhesive die cuts in the package. It makes for some super easy scrapbooking....or you can use them for almost any project! I have used these for making fast cards.
These are some cute ideas to use in a 6x6 scrapbook. I took these photos from someone's ideas on the Alaskan Cruise. Thanks to whomever that was!!
Ha - I see that these photos are sideways...but I will have to fix them later. I am running out the dor for a baseball game!
Did I tell you that I am so happy that I finished a photobook and uploaded it to be printed? That is such a great feeling! See my last post to check out more samples.
Here are a few more pages to share with you. :) This is from our Southern Caribbean Cruise in May 2010 with Stampin' Up!
With the MDS software you can work all the features of an easy-to-use package. There are stamps to choose from...you just pick them and drop them on the page. You also have punches, embellishments (like ribbons, buttons, brads, and more...), designer papers to use, cardstock, etc. It really is amazing to watch how a blank page turns into a work of art!
