My Digital Studio 2!

Hello Stampers!  I came across some videos that Stampin' Up! created a couple of months ago about the new My Digital Studio 2 and thought I would post them here for you.

 

 

 

 

There is so much more that you can do with the new My Digital Studio 2, that you couldn't do before!  So much more user friendly! 

And, Stampin' Up! has created tons of videos to help you learn how to do everything you need to do!  How cool is that!!!

And don't forget, that you can download My Digital Studio 2 for FREE for a 30 day trial!  Ask me how!

All In The Family pencil toppers

Hello Stampers!  Well, the preschool school year has finally started, and of course I always have to make some sort of a fun gift for their first day of preschool!  Only, I made the cutest things and forgot to take a picture!!!

Luckily, I also made these to send off in a goodie bag for my daughter and her roommate at college, so you have to settle for a picture of them instead!

P1120526

So for the preschoolers, I colored the hair to match theirs, and they said First Day of Preschool on them!  I used the All In The Family stamp set which retired this last year.  I still LOVE that stamp set though!  It is super cute!

Don't forget that I'm giving away a FREE stamp set this weekend!  All you have to do is leave me a comment or send me an e-mail to be in the drawing!  I will draw on Monday!

Cardstock Flower basket

Hello Stampers!  I love all of the comments and e-mails that I'm getting since I announced my giveaway yesterday!  Especially since I forgot to add the picture of the stamp set that I'm giving away!!!

P1120527  I'm giving away the Happy Together stamp set that retired this past year!  So please leave me more comments or send me an e-mail to be in the drawing!  I will draw the winner on Monday!

Now, I have to show you the cutest basket that I received from my friend Sarah for my birthday! 

P1120523Isn't this fun?  Notice all of the flowers are purple!!!  My favorite color!  She made these out of the different shades of Stampin' Up! cardstock!  She colored the stems and leaves of the flowers with one of our Stampin' Write markers.  It is the perfect size to hold cards too! 

P1120524It is also the perfect size to hold M & M's and a gift card for Orange Leaf yogurt!  YUM!  My favorite place!!!

Thanks Sarah!

No Peeking card and Game remote card

Hello Stampers!  Some of you know that I sent my oldest daughter away to college this year.  She is having a tough time with being homesick, so I sent her a goodie box last week.  And, you know that I had to send her a card too!

My good friend Lisa, recently showed me how to make a 3 Layer Card, so I decided to try that technique and make Casie a card.  I had to of course use a penguin, since Casie LOVES penguins!  And I LOVE the penguin in the new No Peeking stamp set (126290) in the catalog!

P1120491What do you think?  Casie loved the card!

Casie's roommate Hannah is a really sweet girl, and she is really into her gaming systems, so I decided to make her a card too!

P1120490Can you guess what Hannah's favorite color is?  She loved her card too.  I got this card idea from my downline, Sarah, who made one of these too.

I've decided to start doing some monthly give aways, so I'm going to start on my blog!  All you have to do this month is leave a comment on my blog sometime this week!  That's right, just leave a comment on one of my posts this week, and your name will be entered into a drawing to win this stamp set for FREE!

Kid's cards

Hello Stampers!  I have mentioned before that I love it when my customers bring their cards to show me that they have created.  I love to be inspired too!

At my last kid's class, I told them that if they created cards on their own and brought them back to show me, I would give them a free stamp!  Here are some more creations that I got back:

P1120503These are the cards that Hannah created.

P1120504These are the cards that Rachael created.

Aren't they adorable??

Just Believe notecard

Hello Stampers!  Every month I made notecards to put in my orders, and here are this month's cards:

P1120357I used the leaf and stem image from the Just Believe stamp set (116948) and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit (118138) with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439).  I always write on a post-it note inside my cards that I give every month so that my customer can re-use the card if they would like to!

Wouldn't you love to be the recipient of a free card?  Just place an order from me, either in person, by e-mail or on my online store, and you will receive one too!

Floral Frames Framelits Christmas card

Hello Stampers!  As you know, each month I feature a different Christmas Card kit that I have available.  Each kit costs $10 and contains everything needed to make five of that card.  It is a great way to get a jump on your Christmas cards for the year!  Here is this month's card:

P1120327Isn't this a fun card?  I have seen these wreaths on door cards all over the internet, so I decided I needed to make one for myself!  I love how it turned out!

I used the Floral Frames Framelits (127012) to make my wreath and then I ran the pieces I wanted through the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439) with my Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder (117335).

If you are interested in ordering one of these kits, contact me today!

Hearts Collection Framelits card

Hello Stampers!  I have been wanting to show you a card that I made for one of my downline group swaps.  Our theme was love/wedding/anniversary.

P1120446These cards were so fun to make!  I simply used the Hearts Collection Framelits (125599) dies.  I layered them all at one time on my cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439).  I then took every other heart and adhered them on the flaps.  The biggest and smallest hearts were adhered on the left side, and the middle heart was adhered on the right side.  What a cool effect as the hearts go between each other to close and open the card.

You should try this technique out and let me see what you come up with!  I can't wait to try this with the Labels Collection Framelits (125598) and the Floral Frames Framelits (127012)!
