This week my daughter announced her new baby due in November with these cute pictures of my granddaughter holding a chalkboard sign declaring her upcoming status as ‘Big Sister’! So cute!! And so exciting! And ‘Big Sister’ has a new cousin coming in October, so this November baby will be grandbaby #5! Wow – I feel so blessed!
We all know it’s important to document family milestones. And we know that scrapbooking is a fantastic way to do it, but sometimes we don’t scrapbook these events because of our perfectionism. We don’t want to do it unless we can do it ‘right.’ I guess that’s one of the many things I LOVE about MDS. I can do it, do it ‘right’ and do it FAST!
With traditional scrapbooking I would have spent a couple of hours creating a layout for these pictures, but with MDS this layout took me 10 minutes!! I selected the Split Second Designer Template, dropped in the pictures, shifted the ‘arrow’ embellishment a little to fit the picture and added journaling – that’s it! Done!
Today is National Scrapbook Day! And here are some wonderful Stampin’ Up! scrapbook samples. And be sure and sign up for the Stamping Julie list and get your May news coming out this week with more scrapbook samples and how-to’s!

Do you love the idea of traditional scrapbooking, but you just can’t seem to find the time? Stampin’ Up!’s divided page protectors may provide your solution. When you combine divided page protectors with customizable digital pocket cards, well, it’s a match made in heaven. And it gets even better when you can download the FREE digital No Regrets Pocket Cards.
Pocket cards are designed to slide in the pockets of divided page protectors and provide decoration and a place for titles and journaling.
The Happy Things Pocket Cards digital download is a great choice too. In this download you receive all the designer templates shown above plus a 30-piece SVG stamp brush set, 5 embellishments, and 3 digital punches. These cards can be printed and cut to journal on or you can add your journaling as text before you print – the choice is yours.
The On Holiday Photobook Template is new this week. You can view more information and pictures of this new template by clicking on the picture above. You can watch video tutorials on using a photobook template here and here. (These were recorded before the latest update, but the basic functions are still the same.)
Here’s a video from Holly at Stampin’ Up! that will introduce you to the latest version of MDS!
