Today I would like to focus on a suite of items which will no longer be available after May. You may have seen in my previous post that MDS (My Digital Studio) is being withdrawn. Stampin’ Up! have taken the difficult decision to stop producing items for MDS, and to stop supporting the product as of the end of May 2015. This is because the product takes a significant amount of work to produce all the digital files, etc. and it is simply not that profitable. So they are going to shift their focus away from the digital arena and concentrate their focus on the physical.
What does this mean for you?
If you use MDS, then make sure that you have downloaded all of your kits and packs by the end of May (I will be sure to do mine!). I would suggest downloading all of the kits in all available formats and storing them either on an external drive, or on a disc (or more than one if you have a lot of kits!). This way, even if you change computer or want to use the images in a different piece of software, you will have the files available to you. After May ends, you will not be able to get them any more.
If you don’t use MDS, you can still use the kits if you want to, as they can be downloaded as images for use in “other applications”. For example, if you use Photoshop or do Digital Project Life, you could still use the images on your pages and in your pockets.
There is currently 30% off ALL MDS product, including the software itself. It was a great deal to start with, so this is a stellar opportunity. They will be supporting the product through May, so if you think you’d like to try it, then I suggest getting it and installing it as soon as possible, just in case you need any help.
The Project Life items are all currently available electronically with the exception of Let’s Get Away. Once MDS has been discontinued, these products will be available through BeckyHiggins.com as part of the Digital Project Life offering. (But if you buy them in the next month through Stampin’ Up! you will get 30% off the purchase price!)

If you like the sound of any of the kits, then check them out on the online store! There are plenty to choose from, all at a nice discount; but only through May…
