It is with sadness that Stampin' Up! have decided to no longer sell MDS and all digital product, as of May 31st. Major changes are underway, and with careful evaluation and consideration, all with the intent to provide our demonstrators, to ensure the best possibility for growth and success. Stampin' Up! has determined that we will no longer offer MDS.

I will still be using it for personal digital scrapbooking, but I may not share my projects with you as often as I have done recently...

ALL of your downloaded digital content may be transferrable to other digital software. Please backup all your software and digital downloaded content for future ongoing use...(just in case)...and purchase any digital stamps, embellished kits from Stampin' Up! now if you have it on your wish list. CUT OFF date for any content will be unavailable after the 31st May...

SO here are my projects for this CHALLENGE in ALL MDS (My Digital Studio): have fun looking.

Simple circles...


Simple squares...


BOKEH technique in MDS...just for fun...I could have made the white circles lighter, but I rather liked the extra colour. (that being the challenge)
Capturing the moments. MDS making it soo easy, equalling zero mess...

Calypso coral and crisp cantaloupe with a touch of pink. The flower is stamped on vellum and clear embossed over the top with the old sugar and spice scented powder. SO for effect I have created a scratch and sniff card...hahaha. How many times have you blown on cold soup or sniffed a paper flower...(or is that just me??) 

Just a little play...I had time.

So Saffron and Bermuda Bay stamped with Coastal Cabana on the coloured card stock and whisper white. Punched a couple of flags out of scraps, sponged daubed the edges and stuck it down...oh and embossed the greeting onto vellum, because I am in a hurry inking wont dry in time...(especially on the vellum) Maybe black would have stood out more in the photo, but it does shine in the light...

Here is my take on the colours...IN MDS AGAIN...

A scary day...but worth remembering... :)
AND Just A FEW PROJECTS....


My first funky card...not sure I love this one...
My second card...and it was such a huge challenge to case a card when you don't have the same stamps. But I really think this one worked for me, I love it...
AND of course one, has to have a box, to match loved card...Don't you think?

MDS recipe cards update

I have been playing again with my MDS software and have found that you can save grouped items and reuse them...AND i also found that you can add pages from another project into your current one...I am sooo excited...

SO how easy is that to save many cards of the same design...just needing to change photos and recipes...SOOO in love with it...

Here is a little question for you though.

Would you place pictures behind the recipe???

I'll have to print one out to see if it works and is easily readable...But I am loving this idea. scrapbooking pics into recipe cards...all in one...

The Artful Stampers -Team Challenge Blog Hop - Colour Challenge #21






 Here are my creative projects:


I just love these photos and what great timing that they match this weeks colour challenge. This is of my neice's boy, just gorgeous and can't help but have a little giggle...
AND then I used the same layout for me and pictures of my deary husband. We (mainly I) have dreamed of a berry patch netted to keep all birds out. We spent a lot of time finding the right equipment/cheaply and mainly free. AND we did it.

AND I really wanted to play with paper, here are a few cards, woohoo...


SIMPLY add the colour.

AND simply add ribbon to top it off.
AND simply add lego
AND simply add DAD

AND simply fly away to the next hop, hope you have enjoyed this excited mojo of mine.

Mojo Blitz...

When you have it, you go for it...

here are a few samples of cards I made today, when I thought I had no go in me...
Well it kicked when I wasn't thinking, how happy does that make me feel when I look back over today. Cookies cooked, cake baked, and cards made...wow yippee...Get your crafty on too...In no particular order :

Simple words mean so much from the right person....

Simple coloured block, spritzed with water and stamped over with black.

Simply stamped all over, love this card and colours of Smoky Slate and So Saffron.
Hope you had a lovely day...

oh and the cookies and cake (over here for the Chocolate zucchini cake)...yuummm...I don't think there are any cookies left to cover or drizzle with melted chocolate...yummo.
