MDSM 115 - Our Favorite Things!

This is our last weekly challenge for MDS Monday!  It's SO hard to even type those words.  All of the designers here at MDS Monday want to thank everyone who's participated in our challenges.  We've enjoyed seeing your wonderful, creative designs.  It's been so much fun to play with you each week.  However, because Stampin' Up! will no longer be supporting My Digital Studio after June 9, 2015, we will no longer be posting challenges after this week.

The Stampin' Up! digital store will close on June 2, so you only have a little more than a week to peruse all the great downloads and buy any last minute items.  Therefore, for our last challenge, I thought it would be fun to have an open challenge to create a page sharing your favorite download(s).  Be sure to tell us which download you featured and why it's your favorite.

Note:  We added two great resource pages to the MDS Monday site.  They include Software Options and Printing Options.  Also, I've been adding information to the Videos / How To tab about backing up MDS as I've learned more tips.

Challenge Guidelines:

  • Please create a new MDS project for the current challenge.
  • Provide a link back to MDS Monday or use the challenge graphic above within your post.
  • Link directly to your post or sample page for this challenge, not your entire website (So we can find your project)
  • You can create a card, scrapbook page or 3-D object with the sketch.
  • The Challenge will end on Saturday May 30th  @ 12pm EST. 
  • Have fun!

  1. My dear MDS Monday Friends - I'm not going to say goodbye, because I'll continue following your wonderful blogs. I can't say THANK YOU enough for everything you've done here at MDS Monday. You are unbelievably talented, hardworking, kind, selfless, and more than I can express (you're really good at that too). Love this last challenge and all of your great pages. MDS hugs and love to all of you.

  2. I can't tell you how much your comment means to me! Participating in this blog has connected me with the most amazing ladies, one of which is you! I love seeing your pages every week; you are such a talented photographer, and then you're so good at putting those great photos into such meaningful pages!

  3. I hate it that MDS is ending, I just recently bought the program en love it!
    A few months ago I read the MDS Monday team is exploring options for alternative digital software and planned to share this information on the site. I also read the challenge team was still in the process of determining what to do with this site, including future challenges. but i haven't read anything about it? I hope the challenge will keep going and I'm curious about alternative software!

    1. I will add information about the alternative software. Sorry for the oversite. I think most of us have decided to just maintain MDS for our personal use. That's why we focused more on back up procedures. Sadly, we will not be continuing this site after this challenge.

    2. OK, information about an alternative software is up under the tab called Software Options.

  4. Thank you so much for creating this challenge blog! I have really loved seeing all the creations and how many things that can be done with the software. I also appreciated all the info and tutorials I could find here. I'm glad I managed to play in time this week! :)

  5. Gals - I want to thank you the inspiration you have given all of us with these challenges. I will continue to use MDS no matter what! In fact, I just finished going through my downloads to "fill in the gaps" of what I need before the end. The total came to a little over $200 - now, to pare it down!! Thanks again and I will, for sure, miss this challenge.


Thanks for joining us at MDS Monday!
