My Digital Studio:
I have already downloaded it and played with it a little (ok, a lot!) and I've enrolled myself in an MDS class at our annual Stampin' Up! Convention in May. I think this is an awesome way to make photo books, calendars, personalised gifts, blog headers, Facebook Timeline banners, stationary, oh, and digital or hybrid scrapbook pages and cards.
I have a new laptop and I haven't managed to successfully migrate all my stuff (like Photoshop Elements) across yet, but I was able to download MDS for free as a Demonstrator because I've registered for Convention. Sweet!
Here is a digital scrapbook layout I made in minutes with a template in MDS:

Bold graphic patterns and colors combine to make stylish cards for guys. While these cards were designed with the men in your life in mind, youíll find they are great for anyone. You'll love having those notoriously hard-to-design masculine cards on hand for special occasions.
Reserve your spot today and join the creative fun!
Contact me today at louiseTsutton@gmail.com to join the celebration!
DATE: Thursday, 21st March 2013

Last but not least, my cards! Well, technically I CASED both of my cards.
This one I CASED directly from the new Mini, page 3! I used the new Honeycomb embossing folder, Tea for Two DSP, Oh, Hello stamp set (page 4). Apart from cutting out the little hexagons, it came together pretty quickly.
Don't you love this whale? This card is CASED from one I found on Pinterest by Heather Summers (her blog is called Stamp With Heather). This stamp set is called Oh, Whale (page 29) and the DSP is called Sunshine and Sprinkles. The whale is cut out with a matching Clearlit (LOVE IT!) so you can perfectly line up your stamped image and cut it out with your Big Shot. I also used the new gorgeous Cloudy Day embossing folder. Cute!
I hope you enjoyed our projects!

Linda is the punch queen! Her cards often feature our versatile punches, layered together to add a polished and lovely feature. She is also the queen of pretty florals, as you can see:
Isn't it pretty? I love the simple, elegant colour scheme. These stamps are from the main catalogue, but you might not have noticed them. The pretty floral swirl is Flowering Flourishes (page 121 main catalogue).
A clever square Easel Card! So very cute. Linda has used the edgelit and doily die from the main catalogue (tip: waxed paper placed between the die and the card stock will help all the delicate little doodads pop out easily).
The stamp set used is Summer Silhouettes (page 82 main catalogue). I love these colours together!
And here is lovely Linda (she's my direct up line) with Bec.

Here's more crafty cuteness from Steph:
Adorable! Steph used the new honeycomb embossing folder, and the new Rain or Shine stamp set.
More cuteness! This time the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching Framelits Dies. The embossing folder and little heart punch is from the main catalogue. Doesn't it work well with this set? Love these colours together too. See the sentiments on the tags? Made with the Word Window Punch and the jewellery tag punch. I will try to do a tutorial to explain how this was done.
And here is the lovely Steph showing off the new Mini! Her blog is Stampingwithsteph.com.au.
Tomorrow: Linda's cards!
