MDS Thursday: Stay Organized

This week, I discovered that I use a lot of different stamp sets, DSP, embellishments on a project.  The project looks great but when I wanted to go back to look at the stamp set again, I wasn't sure which one I used. I had to go through the whole list again.

It was very time consuming.  So of course I had to find a better way.

What did I use to create this?
With this card I went a little crazy. I just kept changing and adding things.  When I was finally done I had no idea what is used to create it.  I had to go back and look for all the stamps, DSP, and ellements i used.  But this time . . .

I added a new page to my project. (see red circle)

and inserted a text box. (see red circle)

In the text box I started typing each element used.  Now I will always know what I used and I can use it again for other projects.

From now on, I add a page to all my projects and keep track of what I use.  I will never be lost again :)

Give it a try.  Thanks for looking.


  1. What a great idea! In the beginning I used MDS a lot but haven't done anything with it lately. I need to get back to it and I am going to use your method to keep track of just what I do. TFS

  2. I really enjoyed looking at your blog. I will be your newest follower. I just got my MDS and I cant' figure it out. So I've kinda set it aside, I'm gonna have to pull it out and play. Thanks for rekindling my interest! You can check out my blog on

  3. Welcome to blog land. Thanks for sharing the MDS tips. I play with it for my blog header and a few other things but I don't use it as much as I'd like. This tip is great. I look forward to more. I'm a new follower from a little north of you - Ulster County.

  4. Wow! Super tip and so easy! Thanks for sharing it.
