Scrapbook Sunday

I miss scrapbooking.  My scrapbooking stuff has been collecting dust most of the summer.  I'm currently working on July 2009 in our family album.  Yesterday the entire family was in the hobby room, and I got a chance to work on pictures of the Tillamook Air Museum.  I love working on those types of pages when the boys are around because they get excited about what I am doing.  Hopefully I will get some time to finish that layout this afternoon, so I can share it with you guys next week.  I find that once I jump in with scrapbooking I can usually get on a roll.

Today though, I thought I would share with you my first MDS2 page.  My Digital Studio 2 (MDS2) is Stampin' UP!'s digital creation software.  I purchased the kit that comes with an extra $500 worth of digital "stuff".  This page was made this morning, start to finish, using one of the predesigned pages in the kit, as well as some stamp images from Daring Adventure.  (also in the kit)  It was quick and fairly easy to do.  I still have a long way to go before I master digital, but at least I was able to create something with pictures I took last weekend.  I think I'm going to go back and add one more set of footprints going off the page.  I thought that area would be cut off.  :)

I'm currently watching the videos that SU has put out teaching us all how to use their digital software.  If you are interested here is the link.  http://mydigitalstudio.net/page/beginner-techniques

You can try out the software yourself for FREE with a 30 day free trail.  If you do, let me know, and we can learn together.  :)

MDS 2+ Download
I chose MDS2+

 There is also an MDS2 (cheaper with less extras) a Free MDS2 Trial (if you've never tried out MDS2 and want to try before you buy), an MDS2 upgrade (if you already own MDS) and MDS2+(this is what I chose because I thought it would be easier to start if I had some options of things to "play" with.)

Are you going digital? Say it's not true!!! We still have to get together and cut and paste :)

What a fabulous mix of great masculine colors and patterns for this sensational scrapbook layout!! Wonderful work, Heather!

That's awesome! I actually own MDS but couldn't get my head around it at all. You seem to have MDS2 licked.

Heather North said...

No, Miss Louise, I am not "going digital", well at least not fully. I have WAY too much paper for that. LOL. If I did go digital in the future I could always bring my lapotop with me when we scrapbook. ;) I am considering doing digital for some specialty albums like the ones I make for the grandparents.

Thanks, Lynn. The colors were all done by SU. :) I just added a couple of stamps.

Bexx, thanks, but I hardly have it licked. :) I am trying though. It's somewhat similar to Creative Memories Storybook Creator, and I have used that before. If I can figure out MDS2 I can scrapbook faster. (In theory that is.)

What a great page Heather, I love the mix of patterns!

Great page! I haven't taken the digital leap yet, although I really need to! I am soooooo behind on all my scrapbooking and I would imagine digital might help speed things along if I can figure it out...We should all definitely learn together!!

I have been very tempted to try digital scrapbooking, but i need another hobby like i need a hole in the head! Great page, Heather!
