First Day of School My Digital Studio Card

It’s hard to believe that back to school is around the corner and summer is almost over.  Where did the time go?!  The inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to create this card on My Digital Studio.  It was so quick and easy and one of the features of MDS is you can color the stamps.  LOVE that feature.  Wouldn’t it be nice to put this card in your child’s lunch box.  It would be a great way to wish them a happy first day of school.

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


Other cards for the album

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.
