MDS Christmas

Hi Everyone!

So I have a bit of a confession.  You may have been checking my blog over the past week and not known that I have actually been in Las Vegas for a Christmas vacation with my husband!  I wrote up all my posts before I left and then scheduled them to appear each day while I was away.  There are just too many weirdos out there to let the world know when I'm on vacation and my house is totally empty.  But, now that we're back, I've got lots of photos and MDS pages to share! 

I am totally in LOVE with MDS.  I actually made this page on my flight from Calgary to Vegas on the 21st.  So all I had to do when I got home was add my photos.  I had approx 1/2 of my book done before I even got off the plane!  I can only imagine the speed at which I can get caught up on my scrapbooking with this new program.  Like I said...I am in LOVE! 

For this page I used a background paper from one of the awesome Christmas downloads available on my website.  This one is the Candy Cane Lane Photocard Digital Kit.  For only $4.95 you get 4 digital papers, A Cute Christmas Stamp Brush set (9 pcs), Candy Cane Embellishments (3 pcs), and 7" x 5" designer greeting card template.  All other elements on this page came with the program. 

Here is a question I received while on vacation about my first MDS post:
Margo said...

Very nice Allison! Will you be printing off the pages or what do you have planned? That part always stumps me when I think about doing digital...
Thank you also for the beautiful card I received in the mail today! :-)

Hi Margo!  First of all, glad you liked the card! :)  In regards to MDS I plan to print off singular pages as well as complete hardbound books through Stampin' Up! printing services.  For events like Christmas and my wedding where there's lots of pictures I want to print completely finished hardbound books with custom photo covers.  For singular type pages like maybe going to the park for a day or just random shots of Chapman (my dog) I plan to get singular pages printed and then add my embellishments to them when they arrive.  Because Stampin' Up! products are a perfect match to MDS downloads, when I get them printed through Stampin' Up! everything will match perfectly!  Hope that helps!

I have lots of pages to show over the next little while and now that I'm home I'll be working on all my January and February classes.  So stay tuned!

Happy Stampin'

  1. Oh cool.... I didn't realize Stampin'Up had a print site to do books etc.... Also great idea about adding your own embellishments to the pages once they are printed.... I never even thought of that! Duh!! LOL

    Glad you had a great "Vegas Vacation" ;-)
