MDS_certifiedWhoo-hoo! I’m certified! (No, no, not certifiable, that would be entirely different.) I am pleased to report that I am officially certified in Stampin’ Up’s My Digital Studio papercrafting software. What does that mean? Well, it means that I have successly completed the webinars and quizzes from Stampin’ Up, as well as created projects in each of the different My Digital Studio design types. This includes cards, scrapbook pages, calendars, and multimedia projects.

This software is fantastic. It uses the same great artwork, colors, and accessory images found in Stampin’ Up’s current product line, but you never have to worry about running out! You can print your creations at home, send them to Stampin’ Up’s professional print service, or simply keep them as digital art. Imagine a digital frame constantly rotaing through your beautiful scrapbook pages! Stampin’ Up’s printer has specially calibrated their inks to be exact matches to Stampin’ Up’s colors. This means you can create “hybrid” pages, and add matching embellishments.

I am pleased to offer a complimentary  one-on-one My Digital Studio class to anyone who purchases the software from me. Interested in seeing it first? I’ve got it on my laptop, and I’m happy to show you this exceptional software!

More information about My Digital Studio is available on my Stampin’ Up Website. And don’t forget, My Digital Studio is part of the Holiday Gift Giving Guide. This means you can choose one FREE Décor Elements (up to a $16.95 value) if you purchase it by January 4th.

Want it cheaper? Through November 30, get 50 percent off My Digital Studio when you host a $400 workshop! Plus, get any one item from the Holiday 2009 Mini Catalog for just $10 when you host a $250 workshop. Contact me today to schedule your workshop!

I mentioned a few posts ago how fun it was to be able to take My Digtal Studio with anywhere since it is on my laptop. Not only that, but I can even begin to scrapbook things before the trip is over! You have to love digital technology! I used this week’s Saturday Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411 to create a scrapbook page while I am still at the American Association of School Librarians conference! This week’s sketch:

Right across from the Convention Center in Charlotte is a beautiful green, with these amazing statues of books. My friend and colleague, Elisabeth and I wanted a picture in front of this. Luckily a kindly librarian passing by took a picture of us together.

It is amazing to me that I can still be at an event, and be actively creating a scrapbook about it. Every time I use My Digital Studio, I like it more and more!

I found yet another great plus to using Stampin’ Up’s My Digital Studio. You can take it anywhere! I am currently in Charlotte, North Carolina for the American Association of School Librarians conference. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have brought any stamping stuff with me, because it is too hard to figure out what I want to do, and how much to bring, and what if I don’t have time, etc, etc. But not this time! Nope! I simply loaded My Digital Studio on my laptop, and I can relax in the evenings by playing with it and creating a few pages! (I love that when you purchase MDS you are licensed to install it on two computers in the same home, so I can install it on both my desktop and laptop computer without a problem.)

I had some spare time this morning before I have to head out to the conference sessions, so I put together a scrapbook page for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. The colors are:

I used some pictures from last December, of my Dad and Eve building a hot air balloon out of her Mega Fort Builder set. I substituted Tempting Turquoise for the Taken with Teal, because the background paper I wanted to use was not available in Taken with Teal.  I’m very happy with the way it came out, and I may use it as one of the pages of the calender I am making for my parents for Hanukkah. (Another great feature of MDS — you can import pages from one project to another! It saves time and effort, no duplicating work!)

Happy Stampin’, whether it is real or virtual!

I am so fortunate to be working with a wonderful woman in the library this year! She is amazing, and really went above and beyond to make the library a festive place for Halloween. The students loved it all month, and yesterday was a fantastic Halloween celebration. I used My Digital Studio to whip a quick scrapbook page commemorating how great it was. If you look closely at the top right hand corner of the picture, you can see some of the 100 witches’ hats that were hanging from the ceiling.

I’m going to print this out and give it to her on Monday. Have I mentioned how much I’m loving My Digital Studio? Don’t worry, I’ll keep telling you!

You know what I love about My Digital Studio? Well, I’ll tell you… I love that not only can I make amazing scrapbook pages, not only can I make fabulous cards, but I can make a huge assortment of other digital items as well. Case in point, I made a super cute flyer for my Halloween buddy at work!

I told you last week how we are doing buddies at work, leaving fun little treats for each other. Well, I knew I couldn’t stamp anything for her (or she would know it was me), but I sure could print something on the computer! So I put this together in about 10 minutes, printed it out, and left it on her desk with one of those little pumpkins. So cute and easy!

I love My Digital Studio! I’ll have more great projects to show you soon!
