As you know I had a GREAT TIME at our annual Stampin' Up! Convention in July … I wanted to archive some of the fun moments in a My Digital Studio SWATCH BOOK.. these books are so cute.. i did this in an evening!!  If you have updated to the latest version of MDS you will see this swatch book option under PHOTOBOOKS & INDIVIDUAL PAGES when you go to create a new project.  (More info on SWATCH BOOKS here)

Conv swatch 1

this gives you an idea of the size… the pages measure 3-1/4" x 5-1/2" and are attached with a rivet in the upper left corner.
Conv swatch3

here are a few of the pages:

Conv swatch 4
Conv swatch 5

Conv swatch 6

Conv swatch7
Conv swatch8

when you flip it over, you see all the pages on the back sides… too fun!

Conv swatch 2

I know this is going to be hard to see but you can double-click it to enlarge it…. what I did to start my swatch book was to make about 10 different "templates" (backgrounds with places for photos and journaling) and I repeated these pages over and over to fill my 26 page book.  Then I SAVED that file and opened a duplicate file to use for my Convention 2011 book, and inserted my convention photos.. that way I have a little swatch book template that I can reuse, modify, etc. without redoing all the work.

I tried to stick with just a few different MDS download files.. for the most part, here are the downloads I used:

  • Convention 2011 Designer Kit, #127361
  • My Friend set, #123147
  • Downtown Grunge, #126056
  • Limited Edition embellishments, #127175

 Hope you enjoyed my little book.. I hope  YOU will try a Swatch book in MDS !!
