I’m not sure why, but I’ve been hesitant to jump on the digital bandwagon. I purchased Stampin’Up!’s “My Digital Studio” when it was first released a couple years ago, but I really haven’t done much with it. Call me old fashion, but I love the look and feel of acutal “hand-made” cards and scrapbook pages. There’s just something special and unique about them!
But it is 2012, and we live in a digital world. So I stepped outside of my comfort zone last night and downloaded the FREE 30-day trail of My Digital Studio (MDS). I spent a couple of hours experiementing with the program, and I can honestly say it was very user friendly!!! Sure, it took me a little bit to get acquainted with the different tools and options, but once I did, it was SUPER easy to create.
Two weeks ago, we took a family vacation to Minnesota to celebrate my grandma’s 92nd birthday. It was a wonderful weekend reunion not only with my family, but also aunts, uncles, and cousins. Many pictures were taken, and I figured this was the perfect opportunity to test out my digital scrapbooking skills!
When you begin a new project in MDS, you can choose to start from scratch (design your own page), use photo templates, or import pictures into pre-designed layouts. I took the easy route and went for the pre-designed pages–and I’m sooo glad that I did!!! All I had to do was select a picture from my camera, drag it over to the page and drop it! No cropping, no cutting, no worries!
If you haven’t tried the 30-day FREE trial of My Digital Studio, I HIGHLY recommend it. Head over to my SU Webpage and click on the link for the free trial. You can even print your cards, scrapbooks, calendars, projects, etc! (and during the month of August they are offering some pretty sweet discounts on printing–so stay tuned!!!)You can also view the list of new digital downloads every tuesday.
