Happy Friday and Happy MDS Blog Hoppy day. I can barely contain my excitement about my layout I'm sharing today and it all boils down to the theme. It's all about My FAVORITE-MUST HAVE downloads. I'm also excited to share this because it goes down in the record book for the longest layout I've ever worked on. Typically I can work on layouts rather quickly. NOT this one. My "Z" key (otherwise known as UNDO) on my computer has been given a workout. It wasn't that the layout was difficult. It was trying to show you all my favs in one layout. LOL. Let me share because I'm excited.
I've included a PDF below that you can download that will have the complete list of downloads I used. I want to talk about a few because they are just too great not to share.
Hexagon's and Chevrons are all the rage in the crafting world. I love the Hexagon digital punch even more because I don't have a "real" one. I can use it on digital pages or just print on plain cardstock and cut it with scissors. Chevrons are EVERYWHERE and they are even better when you can download a digital format of Chevrons and change them to ANY color you want.
Another favorite download of mine is the Downtown Grunge Kit. This has to be my favorite kit ever. I only used a small piece of the Downtown Grunge on this layout. If you look at the left bottom corner you will see a little piece of script. That is a part of the kit and it's a stamp brush. The rest of the kit is amazing with frames, stitching and lots of other great fun things. Make sure you check out my supply list that will direct you to the links to find them.
My next favorite kit is Back to School. LOVE everything in this kit! On this layout you will see the stamp brush Grunge (looks like a big splatter). The frame on my photo is also from this kit.
One last kit I love is called Bandstand. You can see the pennants next to my photo. This is a stamp brush and I like it that way because I can change the color of the pennants to fit the need of my layout or project AND I can also use the brush tool to change each pennant to be different colors. Isn't that great?
A few embellishments that I use the most are stitching, buttons and ribbons. I love the pleated ribbons especially and with MDS 2 you have the ability to CROP these embellishments to your liking. WHOO HOO!
There ya have it. Honestly, these are just a few of my favorites. I could have written forever on more of my favorites! What are your favorites? I'll be sharing more of my favorites on my Facebook Fan page. Make sure to check them out.
