I created another card using My Digital Studio this morning. It took all of 10 minutes maybe. This one I sent to the printer and it's on my order. I can't wait to see it when it comes!

Here is what the inside looks like.

I went to see a play last night at the Fulton Opera House in Lancaster called Dial M for Murder. It was very good. I was mesmerized by the set design. It was monocromatic in grey tones - just beautiful. I could not stop thinking about recreating the wallpaper on a card. Is that a riot! This morning I opened My Digital Studio and went to work. It's close but not exact. I used Friends 24/7 stamp set and changed the opacity of the color from the top to bottom. This is how the wallpaper looked on the set. In real life it is much prettier. I added a verse and brads. It just goes to show you that inspiration comes from everywhere! Look around you for creative inspiration. Here is the card.

Enjoy Your Day!

Great Gift Idea

Looking for a little gift for a teacher or friend or co-worker? The Calendar Kit in the HOLIDAY MINI CATALOG is the perfect choice! This double-sided calendar shows the month on one side and a pattern on the other. When the month is done, you can use the patterned side to embellish a card or scrapbook page! A chipboard easel to hold the calendar comes with the kit. Embellish each month with the coordinating Note To Self stamp set and wrap the calendar in a Magnetic Gift Box ( both found in the Holiday Mini ) for a perfect gift!

I colored the chipboard easel using an ink pad and sponge dauber. You can make the easel any color you want.

I simply embellished the box with a piece of  Old Olive Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and made the tag using the level 2 Christmas Punch Hostess Stamp Set. The tag was tied onto the ribbon with Linen Thread. A simple pretty presentation.

Enjoy Your Day!

My Digital Studio

I am loving working with My Digital Studio! I am realizing that I need to take more pictures. I've never been a big picture taker - you know, just the basic pictures you take for birthday's and Christmas. I'm going to try harder to take more. I'll have practice this weekend when we celebrate 3 birthdays in the family at a gathering at my house!

My Digital Studio ( MDS ) is a versital tool. I've made scrapbook pages, cards, Christmas photo cards, and tags so far. I haven't tackled the calendar yet because I need more photo's! You can make newsletters, stationary, Christmas newsletter's, DVD's, multimedia with music. I enhanced my Facebook profile picture too! It is an amazing papercrafting tool. Here a some samples I've been working on.

Stampin' Up! has a professional printer to print the projects. This gives your projects a professional look and keeps the color's true. If you are like me and like to feel those buttons or brads or 3D images on your project, you can always add those after printing! You can combine digital with the real thing. How cool is that!
