MDS Hop - Getting it Done!

Welcome to today's MDS Blog Hop!  Today we are showing you what we've been working on in MDS.  I was looking through some of our scrapbooks the other day and noticed that I never did the 2nd page of a New Year's layout from a couple of years ago. Luckily, with MDS, it was so easy to finish!! I imported the first page into MDS and then created a duplicate page mirrored.  I changed a few things and added a few more photo boxes.  Once I added my photos and a few stamps I was done!!  :)

Here is the original layout (or left side of this now double page spread):

I used the Midnight Cheer download.  It's such a fun kit that comes with everything you need!  All I added was a little glimmer paper, twine and stitching! :)  

I still have a lot of pages to fill in my scrapbooks… but MDS is helping me to get it done!!!

Next up on our hop is Beth Rush!  Click the button below to link to to her blog!  I can't wait to see what she's been up to!

MDS Decor

Happy Thursday!  For today's MDS Blog Hop, we're showcasing MDS projects used for Home Decor and/or Party Decor.  This was a bit of a struggle for me because we've recently moved and I've yet to unpack my craft room!  (gasp!)  While I don't have my project completely finished, I'll show you what I do have done so far.  This weekend I'm doing the Atlanta 2-day Walk for Breast Cancer.  We'll walk 20 miles to raise money for breast cancer patients and breast health.  I did the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk years ago and it's such an amazing experience.  I was ready to do another walk and found this one to do with a few friends!

On Saturday night, teams can decorate their tables for the dinner we all attend.  I wanted to make a couple of table decorations for ours. :)

I created this table centerpiece (there will actually be two) and a frameable with the help of MDS!  Our team has received donations along the way and we are walking in honor of and in memory of friends, family, acquaintances and loved ones.  The frameable was made listing all of these special people. :)

I've created lots of centerpieces similar to this before.  They are so easy!  The name of our team is the "Sole Sisters".  I printed out our team name in MDS - adding the cute Ribbon of Hope in place of the "l".  I cut it out using my Big Shot Labels Collection Framelits and layered it with Melon Mambo cardstock.  Both sides are the same and glued onto a dowel.  Once this is added to a cute little bucket (Target $1 spot years ago) with some fun shredded confetti, you have a cute centerpiece!

Although this isn't party/home decor, I want to show you the blog header I made for our team Facebook Page.  Pretty cute!

As you might have noticed, I used that at the top of our frameable. :)

I have plans to make confetti for the table using my Silhouette and the MDS Ribbon of Hope as well… but I haven't found unpacked my cutting pads yet…  Hoping to remedy that tomorrow!!  

Thanks for joining us on our MDS Blog Hop!  Next up is Beth Rush!  Click the button below to see what fun project she's created!!

Have a wonderfully, creative day!
