Happy Autumn!


One of the fun things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is the opportunity to get together with other demonstrators.  A while back I attended a get together in Toronto with my friend, Mo.  This is one of the cards we created, based on a demonstrator’s sample.  I _think_ this was Maureen’s card….but I could be wrong (sorry).  Anyway, it uses the stampin’ around wheel Bright Blessings, the stamp set Autumn Blessings (Holiday Mini catalogue) and the little circle image is from the Falling Leaves stamp set.

There’s still time to register for the Fall Stamp-a-Stack, Saturday October 3rd – click below or contact me!

My First “My Digital Studio” layout

First-mds-project-for-blog Guess what was delivered to me today?  Stampin' Up!'s new digital project program!  You can create digital scrapbook layouts, photo books, cards, dvds…

I just had to sit down and play with it for a little while.  Here's my first layout to share – a quickie – used a template, dropped in the photos (able to crop them in place) added in abackground, text and a "stamp" (the words 'sunny days') and here it is!  In all honesty, it took me less than half an hour, most of it spent making decisions on what colours to use and which accessories!  (In the end, I obviously didn't use that many accessories lol).

My first impressions – I find it easy to use.  If you have used Photoshop products, it will feel familiarto you.  If you haven't used Photoshop products, My Digital Studio is very user friendly & there are guides & tips all along the way.  You can use Stampin' Up! images, and embellishments to digitally enhance your digital photos.  Don't just let those photos sit in your computer – share them!!  My Digital Studio is available to my Stampin' Up! customers on October 1st.  Contact me for more information or to reserve your copy!!
