Floral Scented Bath

“Stamping is as good as a floral-scented bath when it comes to relaxing.”

Another idea for you with the Patterned Ocassions SAB set. This time using the elephant! And, yes, I used the background paper to choose my color combo again…did I mention that I love this method?! All supplies are listed below except for the SAB items which are no longer available. Hopefully, you got in on the party and have these goodies headed your way via UPS! To purchase any of the supplies listed click the order online button to be taken to my demonstrator business website and click on the shop now button to get started! Note: I did use a sharpie to color the pearl for the eye.

Big Changes for My Digital Studio

We’ve been working on some big changes, and we just can’t contain ourselves anymore. So, raise your hands if you want to know what we’ve been up to? (Yes, we can sense your virtual curiosity.)
Alright, here it goes:
  1. We’re changing the name of the software to MDS. Now, you might be asking yourself, didn’t it just change to MDS 2 last year? Yep, it sure did.
  2. We’re lowering the price! What has been known as MDS 2+ is now $19.95 US/$24.95 CAN and will be called . . . yes, you guessed it, MDS. It’s the same great software and content at a fantastic new price.
  3. Coming soon: all of you who have been holding onto the original My Digital Studio software will be able to upgrade for FREE. We’ll let you know as soon as it is available. (Can we get a woot, woot?)
Yep, THAT just happened.
Other stuff you may want to know:
  • We will still offer a free 30-day trial version of the MDS software for anyone who had not previously tried the MDS 2 Trial.
  • The original My Digital Studio software (not the product line) is going away, including support for it. The free upgrade will be available soon!  
  • MDS 2 (the software that didn’t have much content) is going away.
  • You can still get the software on a disc (item 130647) or as a download (item 130646). Just keep in mind the disc will say MDS 2+ on it because it will take us awhile to switch everything out.
Share your excitement below. (Virtual high-fives all around.)
We understand that when a price changes after you have made a recent purchase it can be frustrating. If you purchased the software at the old price from March 1 to March 17, 2013, the following will be added to your Download Manager by Wednesday, March 20:
MDS 2+ or MDS 2
  • Up To Date Planner Template (item 133271, retail value $14.95 US/$18.50 CAN)
  • Hello There Kit (item 133374, retail value $9.95 US/$12.50 CAN)
  • Everyday Woodcuts Embellishments  (item 132191, retail value $5.95 US/$7.95 CAN)
MDS Upgrade
  • Hello There Kit (item 133374, retail value $9.95 US/$12.50 CAN)

“There is nothing like a well-worn pair of jeans.”

I just love this jeans stamp from the Patterned Ocassions SAB set! I know SAB is over…but I was so busy with classes and workshops I didn’t get a chance to take pictures and post them while SAB was going on. However, since all of my hostesses and students haven’t seen everything and they will be receiving these goodies in their orders…I am going to be posting a few cards from this set so they can do some CASING when all their new toys show up! I picked my color combo from the background paper (just love that method!) I chose to highlight my focal point with the flower since it went well with the background paper…and I really find myself using that honeycomb folder a lot! Supplies used on this card are listed below (except for the SAB items…those are no longer available.)

Oh Happy Day!

Oh Happy Day! This is what several of my hostesses are experiencing right now! They have had fabulous Sale-A-Bration workshops/parties and earned hundreds of dollars of free stuff and several items at 1/2 price! They are happy, I am happy for them…but sadly…Sale-A-Bration comes to a close soon…the last day is March 22nd. I know that Stampin’ Up! will have other fabulous offers and that we will soon be getting a retired list and the excitement of a new catalog is on the horizon…but I am always sad when SAB is over. It is my favorite SU! promotion! This card features so many of the free SAB items that my hostesses earned. It is very a very simple card (my favorite kind!) It is CASED from one I saw on the internet somewhere. There may be some differences as I did it mostly from memory. I took the ink colors out of the paper so it wasn’t difficult to have a color combination (that is the beauty of working with background papers…the color combo is right there for you!)

Miracles Happen

I love the sentiment, “Miracles Happen!” Couple that with how much I love flora and nature and there is a whole lotta love going on! The basic layout of this card is copied with my own personal touches added. I tried to keep it “earthy.” The photo doesn’t do it justice…mostly because it doesn’t capture the texture and shine of the awesome background paper used on this card! I’ve listed the ingredients used to create this card below. Be sure to click on the link to the background paper and read all about its wonderful properties! This paper is one of those products that you have to see, touch, and feel in order to fully appreciate! If you would like to purchase any of the products used to make the card don’t forget to use the shop now button on my blog to ensure that you get preferred pricing on your order! Thanks for looking!

Spring is Bloomin’ Marvelous!

This card was inspired by one I saw on the web somewhere…I just added a few of my own touches. I didn’t think of it when I created it; but I think a little dazzling details in the center of the flowers would be a nice touch, too! My favorite things about this card are the color combo and the simplicity. This is one of those layouts that you could do up several in advance without the greeting and just add whatever greeting you needed! Supplies used to make this card are listed below! If you need to purchase any of them to make the card be sure to identify me as your demonstrator to get the preferred pricing! The set Bloomin’ Marvelous is an exclusive FREE set with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration which ends on March 22nd! Be sure to get yours so you can make up a batch of these quick, lovely cards to have on hand!

Here For Each Other

This card turned out just beautifully! I love the softness of the stamped flowers in the background. To achieve this I used the “stamp off” technique. This is an easy technique and a great way to add to your selection of colors. To “stamp off” ink up your stamp and then stamp it on a piece of scrap paper to remove some of the color. This softens and subdues the intensity of the color. Keep stamping until you reach the desired intensity of color. For a varying intensities on your card; “stamp off” right on your card like I did here! Below is a listing of the supplies used to make this card. The supply list links right to my web sight where you can place an order for the item if you need it or want it! This set is called Bloomin’ Marvelous and is a Sale-a-bration set which means it is Free with a $50 order! Sale-a-bration ends on March 22nd so don’t miss out; order now!
