Inspiring Gifts

I previously shared some roommate gifts that I received at convention (click HERE to see that post) but some friends in our group, although not roommates, also shared some gifts with us.  Melissa created a sweet card gift set using the 5 newest In-Colours.  They are so sweet and truly a quick, easy and thoughtful gift to provide someone for their birthday.

Vicky created a handy swatchbook using MDS that features each colour group and also showcases some of our designer series paper.  This is a handy tool for demonstrators and such a thoughtful friend gift from Vicky.

Did you know that swatchbooks can be created for a variety of things.

Here are a few fun suggestions:

  • Recipe Books
  • Sewing Pattern Booklet
  • Knitting/ Crocheting Pattern Booklet (put a picture of the finished product on the front and the pattern on the back)
  • Mini- Scrapbooks/ Photo Albums
  • Learning tool for teaching youngsters colours, shapes, alphabet

Wow, I could go on and on! LOL

MDS is such a fun product and surprisingly very easy to use.  Take it from someone who does not use anything but the basic computer programs.  I really thought I would struggle with figuring out how to use the software but most of it is self-explanatory.  Worst case, you learn by trial and error 🙂  Although you can choose to have the product printed at a local printer, Stampin’ Up! has teamed up with a printer who is able to print special items such as the swatchbook, as well as get the most accurate colours in their process to match Stampin’ Up!’s colour line.  You can also download a free 30 day trial version just to test the waters – no pressure, no obligation!  How great is that.
