Fur Friends Forever

For this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments I used My Digital Studio to create this scrapbook page of my fur children.  I used the sketch as a guide and quickly created this page.  I love creating with MDS.  There are so many backgrounds, stamps, embellishments and punches.  If you have MDS and haven’t used it in awhile, I invite you to create a card or scrap page using it.  If you don’t have MDS and would like to try before you buy click here for a FREE trial.

The little things

The inspiration for this week’s sketch challenge inspired me to create with My Digital Studio.  I love creating with My Digital Studio because it’s so easy and fast.  So many downloads!  There’s also a new upgrade.  So if you have My Digital studio be sure to visit MDS online to upgrade.

I created this 8″ x 8″ page inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.

BTS so soon!

It’s back to school time again! Where did the time go?! This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is to create a school themed project. I remembered I had some pictures of my niece’s first day of 2nd grade so I created a matchbook album. This album was so easy to create.

Album open with cards inside

Ariel Matchbook Album

Step 1: Start with card stock 3-7/8″ x 9-1/4″. Score at 4″ and 8-1/2″ and fold both flaps in so that the long flap tucks under the short flap.

Step 2: Create cards for the inside by cutting card stock into 3-5/8″ x 4-3/8″ pieces. You can make as many as you like, but four or five is recommended. More than five and the book will get a little too full.

Step 3: Adhere photos and embellish!

So easy! Check out Hand Stamped Stamped Sentiments for more BTS inspiration and join our challenge.

Beyond the Garden Scrapbook Page

As promised here’s a hybrid 8″ x 8″ scrapbook page I created on My Digital Studio with the Beyond the Garden Digital DSP and the Digital Fabulous Florets Stamp Set.  I also had to include the scooter or Vespa from the On The Grow rubber Stamp Set and the sentiment.  As yesterday I gave my scooter a custom paint job.  I paper pieced it with the Beyond the Garden Digital DSP pattern #6.  I love this digi DSP it’s so bright and perfect for your summer projects.

Winter blues

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we are celebrating the color blue.  Select any shade of blue or different shades of blue and create a project.  I have been so inspired by the upcoming digital downloads in the spring mini and by MDS I decided to make two projects for this challenge.  Also the spring 2011 mini goes into effect today!  Download your copy or email me and I will mail you one.  You may also visit my website to see all the new items in the occasions mini.

I made an 8″ x 8″ scrapbook page of our furry children.  Like everyone who scrapbooks I’m so behind.  This is one of the many pages I’m creating for them.  I used the Blueberry Crisp digital DSP for the background.  I love the Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy colors which were perfect for photos of my sleepy dreaming pets.  I had so much fun creating this page.

The next project I created is a thank you card I’m sending to my brother and sister-in-law for a wonderful Christmas dinner complete with Yorkshire pudding.  So yummy!  I used the new  Nature Walk digital stamp set to create this card.  The background paper is Blueberry Crisp #5 DSP and I used the birdcage from the Nature Walk digital stamp set all over to create the background.  Being able to create your own DSP is another wonderful feature of MDS.  I love the Blueberry Crisp DSP digital download.  For $4.95 you get twelve different digital paper designs and they’re all gorgeous.  The branch, bird and nest are also from the Nature Walk digital stamp set which will be featured in the spring mini which goes into effect today!  I love the digital downloads because you can order them online and you can download them instantly after you process your transaction.

Fall Inspiration

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fall inspiration challenge.  It’s a beautiful photo of  fall in the wine country.  This photo reminded me of the trip my husband and I made in October of 2004.  Of course like a lot of you I’m a bit behind on scrapbooking.  This challenge was perfect for me to start documenting this wonderful trip and use the Autumn Spice digital download in My Digital Studio.  Here’s the inspiration.

Here’s are my scrapbook pages created on My Digital Studio.
