MDS Planner

Boy, oh boy, this project! Let me just say, I LOVE the finished project!!! The process of making it, not so much. I designed a 16 month planner in MDS. I wanted a personalized planner, just for me, so it would have what I need. The design part was SOOOO much fun, but putting the calendar section together was quite a bit challenging. I spent probably 24 hours total on this project in MDS2, but when I got the planner in the mail it was worth it! By the way, THANK GOODNESS for My Digital Studio! My inspiration for this project came from my obsessive use of planners and The Calendar of Perpetual Awesomeness. If you haven't bought that digital kit, you should! I used the papers, colors, and quotes from this kit to create the basis of my planner. I then used other calendar kits to create the actual calendars in my planner.

Each month has 4 pages: The quote with the month on it, a calendar for my everyday happenings and homework, a calendar for planning my blog, and a To Do list.

Here are a couple of other photos of my favorite months pages!

 The supply list for this is:
Be Awesome Today Perpetual Calendar Digital Kit
Bright Review Calendar Digital Kit
Delightful Digital Tape
I had this project printed professionally through Stampin' Up!, and I couldn't be happier with it!

  1. I so love this! I always end up with the boring, dull planners, but I would love to make one for myself this year! I have had MDS since it first came out but haven't played with it much, so I'm afraid it would take me forever! If I ever have the gumption to sit down and try it, could I possibly pick your brain for tips? This is SO AWESOME - maybe you need to just sell me one! :-)

    1. Thank you so much Kelly! It is such a fun planner, and makes it easier to stay on track! By best advice for MDS is to just play with it! I literally taught myself by just using trial & error. Another tip is to use Drop Shadows, this is how you get that "real" look! If you have any other questions feel free to ask!


Thank you for stopping by, and leaving your thoughts!
