Welcome to the world of Digital Papercrafting! The release of Stampin’ Up!s My Digital Studio onto the New Zealand market in March 2013 opened new doors to many crafters. This Software Programme can be used to craft digitally or in hybrid projects using both traditional and digital papercrafting elements .
Q: What is My Digital Studio?
A: My Digital Studio is Stampin’ Up!’s line of digital products. There are two components:
- Software: The My Digital Studio software is called MDS. It enables you to digitally create a variety of projects including (but not limited to) photobooks, cards, calendars, and individual scrapbook pages that use exclusive Stampin’ Up! art, accessories, and colors.
- Downloads and Content: Stampin’ Up! regularly adds to an ever-increasing library of downloads that are perfect for seasonal projects, important events, or everyday creativity. Some are only released as Digital Content! MDS is Mac and PC friendly
30 Day Free Trial
You can download a FREE 30 day trial to see how you like it ! The trial gives you full access to the programme and includes some sample digital content for you to play with. It is a big file though at almost 1 GB so for those on dial up Id say it could be a problem.
Download your Free Trial Here You will still need to create an account. Your 30 days start when you install the programme.
I Want it ALL Now!!
Purchase the Full Version – Order through me with the code #130646 or order online here You will be prompted to Create an Account and once your purchase is complete you will be able to download your software from there. Please be aware it is a large file of around 3 GB
What if I already have a digital scrapbooking programme?
Dont despair you can use any program that supports layers, and .jpg and .png files such as: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Jasc Paint Shop Pro (PSP), Microsoft Digital Image Pro (DIP), Ulead Photo Impact (PI), Corel Draw. My Digital Studio designer templates are exclusive to My Digital Studio and are not compatible with other programs. Neither are any of the punch or die templates as they are .svg files. You do need to have a little bit of know how to integrate the files into other programmes, SO that means you CAN buy the stamp brush set, digital kits and most of the embellishments too.

Please bear in mind when reading these Q & A’s that they were written for the North American market and that Printing Services and MDS Software Discs are not available here in New Zealand.
