NEW Stampin' Up! Fall Stamps, Papers, and Digitals

For those who know my addiction to digital scrapbooking, you also know of my love of Adobe Photoshop Elements. So, when I joined Stampin' Up!, I wasn't sure I'd be using their digital software "MDS". (You CAN download Stampin' UP! digital products to use in Photoshop Elements, so I wouldn't have to make the switch.)

But, for only $20 I figured I should try it out and see how it compared. My other job is teaching piano lessons, and I needed a sign for this month. So here's what I cam up with using MDS:

I really liked it, so I decided to make a new facebook cover for Encore Studio Ink with some modifications:

These are using the new fall sets "Color Me Autumn" (papers) and "For All Things" (stamps).

The papers and stamps are available both digitally AND in "real" paper and stamps:

Rubber Stamps  Digitals
 Designer Papers Digital Papers
My Digital Studio - design software
 I would be happy to help you learn to use either MDS or Rubber Stamps!
