My Scrapbook Philosophy Part 3

Hello, and welcome back! Tonight I'm sharing a little more about my scrapbook philosophy. Some of you might not know about My Digital Studio, which is Stampin' Up!'s digital scrapbooking software. The more I play with the program, the more I like it. I really love making hybrid projects with it, but from time to time I also make digital pages. I have shared a couple of pages made with the program before here and here. I'm really liking it for making complete books though, especially about a specific event or theme. They are great to use as gifts too, especially if you need more than one copy of the book.

I'm not sure I will ever be a 100% digital scrapbooker, because I love making traditional pages with real paper and embellishments. But, here is where I plan to use MDS:

  • To make books about specific events or themes (like Convention 2012 or favorite vacation photos)
  • To make books for friends and family, calendars too
  • To make special titles for scrapbook pages
  • To export shapes to cut with my Silhouette ecutter for scrapbook pages

There are all kinds of choices for supplies in My Digital Studio including papers, stamps, punches, embellishments, etc. You can also purchase photobook templates where all of the pages are already designed for you, and all you have to do is drop in your pictures. This is what I chose to do for my Convention 2012 digital book. You can click on the image below to see the whole template in the store at the Stampin' Up! website. I love this template. It has the chalkboard look in more than one color, chevrons, cool fonts and doodly frames. What's not to love!

I also made a short video which features all of my completed pages in the book. Even if you didn't go to Convention, this would make a great book about friendship or a group event. So, here you go. I hope you enjoy it!



That's all for today. I'll have some traditional scrapbook pages to share soon, and that will round out my scrapbook philosophy posts. Thanks for stopping by!
