MDS as a Planning Tool

I love MDS as a digital scrapbooking program... but really it is So Much more than just that. It also makes a very handy planning tool so that you don't "waste" any real products just to find out you don't like your design. You can do the design phase digitally and then pull out the paper and ink and make the real deal :)

Along those lines, I wanted to show you how I planned some of the fall cards for my class this month. Today we will take a look at the Halloween card. I was planning to use the Tags 4 You stamp set and Bracket Label Punch. Also, I had seen a cute card on pinterest that used the spiderweb texture folder as a background that was inspiring me. Put all that together and here is what I came up with.

I didn't have the stamp set in MDS, just the punch, so I had to improvise and use a placeholder for now :) Also, do you like the spiderweb background I found? There wasn't a stamp to use for this... but searching the web I was able to find an awesome image to use instead! That is a fantastic part about MDS- if you can't find what you are looking for in the program it is compatible with images you can find elsewhere :)

I'm going to print up the white layer with the spider and web on it to use on the actual class cards. It will be like a unique DSP layer in our projects :)

Flutterby again to see the final results!

Pin It!
