Free Trial of My Digital Studio!

I'm a little late with my post this morning, but I have exciting news to share.  Stampin' Up! is now offering a free 30-day trial of My Digital Studio Express!  Express contains the full functionality of the software with fewer digital punches, stamps, patterned papers and embellishments than the full version of the software. Perfect for trying out all the great features of this amazing digital crafting solution.

I know I've sung the praises of My Digital Studio several times here on my blog.  I love how easy it is to use and how it incorporates all my favorite Designer Series Papers, Stamps and Embellishments that have been offered over the past several years.  The sheer number of downloads that are available for the software is many times larger than the number of products we offer in the catalogs and some of the designs have never been offered as traditional products before either.

In the past, I've shown you scrapbook pages and cards made with My Digital Studio, but today I want to share with you a project that takes My Digital Studio to the next level:


Created using My Digital Studio: Crochet Trim Ribbon Pack, Antique Brad Pack, Deck the Halls Photo Card Digital Kit, Artistic Etchings Stamp Brush Set, Baroque Motifs Stamp Brush Set, and Grosgrain Ribbon Back.  Other: Photo Block.  Photos by Karina Orgill.
I've had several of these photo block in my stash for a while.  About a year ago, I was frantically trying to decorate my house in time for a party when I had an "A-HA" moment.  If I designed each section in My Digital studio, I could incorporate the photo and all the elements together and keep them flat but still embellished.  It's a great way to show off a collection family photos.

You might be wondering how I accomplished this since it's a custom page size.  Easy, peasy.  I measured the size of the block and then created six photo boxed on two 12x12 page that were the exact size that I needed it to be.  That way, I could easily fill it with all the elements I wanted on each side and know exactly where the boarders are for that side of the block.  Once I received it back from the print service, I just cut it into squares and adhered it to the block. 

If you are ready to give My Digital Studio a try and have the chance to fall in love with it before you buy it, head on over to my business website, paula.stampinup.net and click "shop now."  You will see the trial offer near the top of the shopping page.  And don't forget, all the images that are available to purchase as kits are there too.  Click here for the complete catalog of available images and kits.  Let me know if you have any questions.
