Cards using My Digital Studio and Simply Sent Kits

Personalized Photo Cards made using Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio!!!

I decided to check out the designer templates already offered in the My Digital Studio Program.
I quickly tweaked this Thank You card and then personalized it with pics of my kiddos and I.
It is made on whisper white background - so in the jpeg it appears a bit funny at the top.

Here is another card I made this week...with some watercolouring.
The stamp set was from a retired Simply Sent Card Making Kit.
 I love the sentiment and the font used on this stamp!
Hope the recipient loves it too (when it arrives in her mailbox) !

Happy Stamping!

Halloween Party Invitations made using the Big Shot

Time sure has gone by quickly this last week in October! So many of you are taking advantage of the wonderful savings on the Princess and Pirate Party kits!  I personally have stocked up for my kids birthdays in May!!  That special ends tomorrow...don't miss out if you children in your life!

Tomorrow is Halloween...then Sunday we are in November - and we can turn our clocks back! Don't forget - take advantage of that extra hour of sleep!!! I know I plan too :)

Today I wanted to share pics of the Halloween Party invites that my daughter Bella (5 yrs old) and I made for her and her brother's classmates.  Bella did 90% of the work on all the cards - I'm so proud of how well they turned out :)

I've also been playing more with My Digital Studio - and will post those soon too...

The cards were made using the Big Shot - Scallop Circle die and retired Kiwi Kiss paper with a bit of crushed curry paper for the pumpkins.

Happy Stamping!

Business.

Send me your photos, and I can scrapbook them for you! Either digitally (like the one above), traditionally or a hybrid of the two.  I can create individual pages, full albums, whatever your scrapbooking needs are!

Scrapbooking my Baba with My Digital Studio

A nostalgic page using Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio

Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, I have pulled out the quilts that my Baba (Ukrainian Grandmother) made for me when I was a child.

They carry such fond memories and I feel so loved and at peace knowing that my Baba's hands quilted each patch. She passed away in 1994 and I still miss her greatly to this day.

These are the only two pictures I have in my laptop of my Baba and I felt the need to scrapbook them tonight.

Memories...what scrapbooking is all about.

Happy Scrapbooking!

As I await my UPS man...more pics from Quebec City Regional

As the title suggests, I am sitting here awaiting the UPS man -
who has on his truck my Stampin' Up! goodies!
Rather than pace back and forth and complain, I figured I'd make myself useful and post some more samples from the Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar held last weekend in Quebec City. These were cards on the sample boards - so I'm sorry I don't know who made them.

I like this next one quite a bit!

Look at this colour combo...

And so you have sample other than is an awesome sparkly card made using the single stamp Dasher - which will be featured in my November classes and stamp a stacks.

For my fellow Canadian friends -have an awesome Thanksgiving Weekend!!

Happy Stamping!

More samples from the Stampin' Up! Regional in Quebec City

Good Morning!

I wanted to share some more of the pics from the samples on display at last weekend Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar in Quebec City. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pic above and will totally CASE it. It screams "Jen DiMarco card" to me :)

Take a peek at this gorgeous scrapbook simple, so beautiful!

This is one of the samples from the Technique Presentations - showcasing make your own ink pad with reinkers and felt so the leaves can be a variety of colours. Yes you can also marker them, but if you create a make shift ink pad, you can stamp approx 10-15 times without having to reink. Whereas if you used your Stampin' Markers you would have to re- maker each time. Very neat idea!

Can you see the dimension on the tangerine tango in the pic below?
Its made with circle punches!

Happy Stamping!
