Happy Easter!

Hello Stampers!  Happy Easter!  I hope that you are all enjoying your holiday with your family and friends!  I wanted to show you a couple of my best selling Easter candy holders from my craft fairs this Spring!

P1130664This is the little lamb.

P1130665This is the little chick.

They are each holding a mini Peanut Butter egg!  The bodies are made using the Scallop CIrcle die with the Big Shot Die Cut Machine, and the face parts are made with punches!

Have a wonderful Easter!

Regional displays

Hello Stampers!  Well, I promised some pictures from the St. Louis Regional, so here they are!

There were some display boards where lots of cards were posted.  Here are a couple of the boards:

P1130803

P1130806

And here are some of the cards:

P1130793

P1130794

P1130795

I just love all of the ideas that Stampin' Up! shares with us.  And they strongly encourage us to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) anything that we want!  It is such a pleasure to work with a company like this!

Want to join me?  Contact me and I can tell you how!

My Digital Studio downloads and project

Hello Stampers!  This will be a long post, but well worth the read if you are at all curious about My Digital Studio!  There have been some exciting changes, as well as a huge price reduction!

Mdspic

We've been working on some big changes to the My Digital Studio product line, and we just can't contain ourselves anymore.

We've changed the name of the software from MDS 2 (and MDS 2+) to MDS.  So now that is how I will refer to it in my blog posts.

We've lowered the price. What has been known as MDS 2+ is now $19.95. That's right!  Instead of the $79.95 that it used to be, it is now only $19.95, for the same hundreds of dollars worth of content!   WOW!

Coming soon:

The upgrade will be free! If you have been holding onto the original My Digital Studio software, they will be able to upgrade to the new software for free. We will let you know when it is available. 

Now there isn't any reason why you shouldn't try out this fantastic digital designing software!  It is so user friendly!  I love it!

Here is a scrapbook page spread that I made yesterday, after my girls played in the snow!  It only took me about 20 minutes to create!

Pinwheel card

Hello Stampers!  I have to show you the cutest card that we made at our Dink It Up! meeting this month.  Each month my gals take turns bringing the make n' take for the group!  It is so much fun seeing their creations for us and the different styles that everybody has.  This month, Alice Marie brought the make n' take.

P1130716 Isn't it fun?  We used the Friendship Preserves stamp set (w-127910 c-127913) from the Holiday catalog.  This fun set is still available though!  We also used the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and the Pinwheel Sizzlits die (129411) from the Spring catalog.  This die makes making these pinwheels super easy! 

When I first say this sizzlit, my initial reaction was "why would I buy that?  All it is is a square?"  I was really wrong!  It also cuts little cutout slits diagonally, and punches the holes for the brad to go through!

P1130726 Makes it super simple!

Thanks Alice Marie for such a fun card!

Wouldn't you love to join us at our next get together?  Contact me and I will tell you how!

Chalkboard Technique

Hello Stamper!  At our Dink It Up! meeting, our challenge for this month was to make a project using the chalkboard technique that Lynn taught us last month.  I always try to give a challenge for the girl's to try new things!  Not everyone participates every month, but I give bling to those who do!  Here is our display table:

P1130714 Fun projects!

P1130715This is a close up of the card that I made.  I got the idea from a blog that I saw.  The stamp set that I used is an awesome set that we received at Convention last year. 

For my banner, I actually used the retired star punch.  Each banner is a leg of the star.  It was the perfect size without me actually having to hand cut the banners.

Don't forget, only 4 more days in Sale-a-bration!  Here is the brochure.
