MDS Thursday: Stamp Search

Today's tip is a quick, but one that I can't live without. 

When I use MDS I usually have a very specific idea in mind.  For example, if I am doing a winter page, I want to use snowflakes, snowmen, swirls, etc. . .

You can go through every stamp set in the MDS library and look to see what may fit.  This can be time consuming and let's face it who has time anymore.  So, I do a word search of the stamps instead.  This searches all the stamps sets (that I have in MDS) for me.

The trick is to choose the stamp icon (see red circle) from the menu bar not the resource pallet.  When this stamp window opens, it gives you the option to search ALL the stamps (see red circle). 

Here I did a search for snow.  And ta da!!!  Now I have all the stamps that have the word snow in there title and what stamp set they are in.  (I like to keep track of which stamps sets I use in a project, so this comes in very handy.)

This is one feature that I love and use all the time.  It's a short method that goes a long way.

Give it a try.  Thanks for looking.
