MDS Virtual Digi Crop

The weather has been crazy here and we keep having to cancel our regular MDS Digi Crop nites that we have at the local Panera.  Today I thought – why do we do this as a virtual crop – everyone will be on their computers anyway – I’ll just create a Facebook group and we’ll have our own Virtual Crop.  I sent Cindy a message and she thought it was a great idea! I got everything set up and we invited all our MDS girls and we had a blast creating with MDS all from the comfort of our home!

We had 2 challenges – Cindy came up with one and created her sample and I came up with the other and created my sample.   Here is mine – a very basic page

2013 Family Book-015

The challenge was to use one of the photo only templates that are in the Designer Template section.  And find a winter font, download, install and use it on your page.  I found a site with 10 free winter fonts that I pinned on my scrapbook board and shared with everyone.

Here is a look at where you find the photo only layouts in My Digital Studio –

Mine was from the 12×1 Photo Only – round corners template.  And I used two winter fonts – one was called Snow Dream and the other Angelic Serif.

To build the page this is what I did:

  • started with the photo template
  • I added a background paper.
  • Filled in my photos – I did add a drop shadow and mat.
  • Added the title.
  • And then added a flag punch and a text box for the date.

We had so much fun that we are going to do it again.  Now to figure out when.

This page has pictures from our Snowjam week in January.  Well guess what we are in the midst of another winter weather situation.  We had one storm come through this morning with snow and freezing rain.  Now another one is starting (this is the BIG one) bringing freezing rain, snow, sleet, ice.  They are expecting lots of ice which can cause the power to go out as trees and lines fall with the weight of the ice.  We shall see what happens – they are telling us to prepare to be home for several days.

Come back and visit me again.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about the virtual mds crop.  Would you be interested in participating?  Since it is virtual it wouldn’t matter where you lived.

  1. I can’t figure out how to download and save (so I can find them again) the free fonts that are available. Do you know of a tutorial for this? By the way, it makes sense to make a digi-crop virtual! Love the idea.

    • I pinned the free font post to my scrapbook board on pinterest – so I’ll be able to find it there. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/237846424044789534/ Follow the pin to the blog which has the links to the website for the font. Then you have to click on download. That puts a zip file on your computer. Open the zip file and find the font file – click on it and then select install and it will add it to your fonts on your computer. Does that make sense?

    • thanks so, so much Monica. I’ve spent a couple of hours choosing and downloading fonts, plus all the organization that goes with it so I can find them again: making a PDF and filing it under fonts, as well as printing a copy of the layout. I’m very excited to do some more MDS with this.
