MDS Blog Hop - More Project Life

Since this is my first year doing Project Life albums for my girls, it took me a few months into it to realize that I needed to get it all a little more organized. Each of my week slots looked different and I didn't like that -- I wanted them all to be uniform somehow to pull the whole album together. So that's where MDS came in! I found some fun Chalkboard fonts (thanks Ali!), added a black background and one of the textured overlays (flipped to white, then turn down the opacity). I sent these to my regular photo printer and they printed them as regular 4x6 photos which was exactly what I wanted. They just slide in on each week's layout spread like a regular picture. I made 52 of them, one for each week.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out everyone else's projects this week (including our guest designer!)

MDS Blog Hop - Summertime 3

I love hodge-podgy things. So when the This & That kit came out, I was all over it. But then - SU! released it in a digital kit. What? Oh, yeah!

I am a happy girl.

I love this picture of the girls and their cousin and couldn't wait to open it up in MDS. All of the little doo-dads were so fun to add, move around, twist around and play with.

And this kit is AMAZING. Over 101 embellishments makes for a whole lot of digital designing fun and gives you so many different options.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and don't forget to travel on to the other ladies to see what summertime goodness they've designed this week! (Links below!)
