My Digital Studio is going too.


Sad news, friends.  As you probably know, I'm a fan of My Digital Studio.  Our South Pacific market got it a couple of years ago, after it had been in the US/Canada market for ages.  I've made hybrid cards, digital scrapbook pages, flyers, business cards,  photobooks and more.  

Unfortunately Stampin' Up! has decided not to continue offering MDS any longer and will finish up on 31 May 2015.

Here are some Q&A from Stampin' Up! about this:
