My Digital Studio

Stampin Up has come out with a great new product "My Digital Studio" while I don't have the whole program yet, they offered a trial download to demos! (yea!) Tomorrow night I am having a workshop and wanted to showcase how fun and simple it is to create digitally. This page is just that, very simple, but would you believe it only took about 5-10 minutes! Think of the possibilities!

Wow Time Flies When Life's Crazy

Wow, my guess is I am not having to many visitors to this blog, and friends I don't blame you but I think its time to get this thing going again! I admit I struggle with consistant blog gets in the way sometime. But in my absence I have been trying new things, learning new stuff and now I am excited to share it out here in blog land. Originally I started this blog as an avenue to play along with some of the challenges and design opportunities out there as well as to promote my Stampin Up business. While I am still a demo for Stampin Up, this blog will be a little more broad. I hopefully will be showcasing products and techniques not necessarily exclusive to one particular area. I like lots of stuff, and hopefully you'll like what I have to show and come back and visit me often!
I love to scrapbook, and recently became introduced to Digital Scrapbooking. I admit to not being a computer pro--and am definately a work in progress, but I have had so much fun playing around the last couple days with some great kits from Stacey Scraps at Scrap That Idea! Here's a little of what I've been up too...
This page was made up with bit and pieces of a few of her kits, I used an I love that tree from her kit "Owl Always Love You" the papers from a new kit "Fallen" are pretty great too, I can't wait to play around with the other designs and embellies in that kit..make it even greater that it is free with a minimum purchase in their shop..check it out!

Wishing for Spring...

Good Morning,
I have a few more cards to show you soon as I saw this stamp set Trendy Trees(pg 91) I knew I had to have it! These trees can be used in so many ways, for this card I wanted to have green trees, to remember that Spring really is on its way! I stamped the tops in Garden Green, Kiwi Kiss, and Old Olive, then used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the tree trunks, which I stamped in Basic Brown and then layered on Old Olive cardstock. I added a little red sentiment using Real Red, tied a little ribbon on and there you have it~ Thanks for stopping by!

Trying to find some mojo....

I've been struggling lately trying to come up with some ideas for cards and scrapbook pages....I haven't been 100% happy with anything I've made lately but oh well...I suppose it will get better~at least I hope it does! These are two way simple cards I made a little while ago, I just HAD to have that daisy stamp and the poor thing had yet to see that I've finally broke it out I can't wait to play with it a little more. I have really been loving kraft cardstock these days, I think most of my projects the last month or so have used it in one way or another! Anyway these cards as I said are pretty simple and straight forward...hope you like them, Thanks for stopping by!

Hi World...I'm Back

So I have been on a blogging break, while I tried to survive the holidays...but now its a NEW Year, full of NEW opportunities, NEW ideas and best of all a NEW Stampin Up Catalog! Last Thursday was our monthly Stamp Club and I think we made some fun projects. Our hostess for the month, made all the girls these adorable notebooks with the Flower Layers dies, so CUTE!
Our first project used the Mark The Date and Full Calendar stamp sets (found on page 126 of the new catty) We stamped the calendar in Basic Black, and the months in a variety of Stampin Up colors! It was pretty simple to assemble, if you want exact measurements leave me a comment and I'll post them.

The current month hangs with a clip adhered to the front with glue dots, while the months not in use sit in the pocket on the back, I just folded up the Kraft c/s and held it together with the twine from the Holiday Mini (now discontinued).
I thought this was a great way to start off 2009, a little calender perfect for the kitchen counter, next to the computer, or a desk at work!
For our next project I wanted to use the Valentines Bundle, I am loving this cute Valentine set Love You Much (pg27) The bundle includes, the Love You Much stampset, coordinating paper Candy Lane, and cute new punch Heart to Heart...all packaged together at a 20% savings! Contact me to order your bundle!! Anyway onto the project. We started with a Kraft cs base, and layered Riding Hood Red, and Pirouette Pink, on Very Vanilla cs the image was stamped in Basic Brown and colored using the AquaPainters and coordinating inks, to finish it off the ends were sealed using my paper crimper.
As I mentioned our hostess for the month made these adorable books for everyone...I love how great the dies work on such a variety of mediums-fabric, felt, cardboard-so many possibilities!!
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
