Ornament Keepsakes project

I did a class a couple of weeks ago using the Ornament Keepsakes bundle in the Holiday Mini catalogue. I decided to use some blue colours as we celebrate Hanukkah as well, so my ornament could do 'double duty' for both holidays. This is a CASE of the front of the holiday catalogue.

Thanks for looking!

MDS2 is LIVE!!!

You may know how much I love digital designing. It’s fast, easy, and a great way to try out colours and layouts before committing to anything, or spending a fortune on supplies! On August 1, Stampin’ Up! released the new version of My Digital Studio, and it took me until now to stop playing and write a blog post on it :)

Let me just say, this software is AMAZING! It has some new features like re-colouring DSP and embellishments, and  using different colours on stamps. You can also crop stamps and embellishments, like selective colouring we do with markers on our rubber stamps. Here’s a quick card I made with the free content included in the 30-day trial:

Fantabulous You-001

And a scrapbook page :) Love the new splatter tool!

Scrap Page-001

You can get the free trial by following the links on my Stampin’ Up! website here. Click on ‘Buy MDS2’ and it will take you to the trial download page. Enjoy!

An Afternoon Daydream

And the only afternoon daydream I'm likely to get, since I've been trying to craft with my very busy toddler, who doesn't want to have any less than 100% of my attention. Napping is impossible today!

I whipped this up for a friend, but the design got away from me and it turned out a little more girly than I was planning! It just gave me an excuse to make a second version.

I used the Apothecary Accents framelit behind the wide oval to frame it. I love these framelits! The holiday mini catalogue, starting August 1, has even more of the matching stamp and framelit sets, you're going to love them!

Thanks for looking!
