So, in honor of this special day I took the tests and did the project that is required to be certified in MDS. Some may even say I'm certifiable! Stampin' Up has a certification program for demonstrators to show that they are qualified to teach, sell and provide support for the My Digital Studio program. I missed a couple of questions here and there but even that helped me learn some things I had missed in the video webinars I watched before taking the tests. There were 4 tests in all and then we had to submit a card to be printed.Here is the card I submitted. What do you think? I decided to do a birth announcement for my grandson who is just over a month old. I'm having fun helping to spoil him. I was going to put a piece of white grossgrain ribbon across the card too but it seemed like it had plenty going on so I skipped that. It will be fun to see the card in real life when it comes. I haven't done much as far as cards are concerned in MDS. I've been doing a lot of scrapbook pages, probably close to 100 by now. I plan to use the program a lot to design cards and pages and then make the actual project from "real" stuff. I like cutting and creating too much to go totally digital!
So, National Digital Scrapbooking Day will surely be over by the time you check my blog again but go ahead and do something digital anyway. I guess I should write it on my calendar so I won't forget about it next year. Hey, I created a calendar for one of my certification classes, I can add it to that! That is one of the great things about creating a calendar in a digital program - you can add your personal things like family birthdays, family reunions and the really important days like Digital Scrapbooking Day. I'm thinking about adding a note about 5 days before every birthday to remind me to mail a card. It would be nice to be able to remember it myself but that just doesn't seem to happen anymore. . .
