Simply MDS Challenge- No Foolin’

Lots of excitement for TODAY!  First… Happy Monday!  It's a fresh new week with so many great things happening and I'm not foolin'!  


Let's get right to the challenge! We are starting this weeks challenge off with a sketch! I love sketches because it's a starting point.  

Kimberly Van Diepen, Stampin' Up!


A fun and hot new trend in the scrapbooking/digital scrapbooking community is Pie Graphs.  YES, Pie Graphs!  How fun is that? 

The possibilities could be WAY fun and you could use the graph to coordinate with the story line of your photos or just use as a decorative piece for your layout as you will see I've done below.  I have a quick video today showing you how to make this pie graph using circle and triangle punches.  It get's better!  Heather did a video as well showing another way to make the pie graph.  


Here is Heather's Video:

  1. Hey there!  Just checkin' out your blog and Heather's blog.  LOVE the pie chart videos!!  I clicked on the link to find out about your MDS club and the link wasn't there…Am I missing it?  Help!

  2. Once again, the two of you created a "wow" page in MDS.  You make it look so easy as you zip through the instructions.  I think to myself, (a dangerous thing) that it will take me hours to create a pie chart no matter what technique I use.  Oh well, it's a learning curve & I love what the two of you do.  TFS
