  • Sympathy card from Leadership 2014
  • St. Patrick's day party favors made easy with MDS download

One of my favorite cards I swapped for during Leadership in January was buried at the bottom of my bag until just today.  I'm so thrilled I found this.  I remember spotting this swap from across the lobby of the George R Brown Convention center.  Kathi had a crowd around her -- and you can see why.  This is a beautiful yet simple card.  Unfortunately, I didn't get Kathi's last name to give her credit for this wonderful card, but I'll be happy to add a link back to your site, if you contact me.

Free digital downloads and 50% off digital kits ends Nov 5

  • FREE digital downloads ends Monday
  • 50% off ALL digital kits ends Monday
  • Join Stampin' Up! between now and Dec 16 for $99 + Free Ink Pads worth $49.95

  • New Trimmer now available -- see video demo

I shopped for Christmas Ornaments and candles and started working on digital Christmas projects this week-end...I'm finding it a little hard to believe we just finished Halloween and it is almost Thanksgiving!  I spent the rest of the week-end playing with My Digital Studio Downloads.   Here's one of the digtal projects I created a couple of weeks ago for a class.


One way I plan to save time and enjoy the holidays more is with My Digital Studio designs.  I'll use this background design for many different projects. 

This design were based on an idea I saw and didn't think to capture where I was on the web when I saw these striking color combinations.  The great thing about designing in My digital Studio is that once I've created the basic background design, I can use it on all kinds of die cuts, tags and cards.  I'll be able to make matching card fronts, gift packages like this pillow box, matchbox candy holders, or anything else I want to create from this design. 

I started by doing a search in My Digital Studio for all the snowflake I had purchased as downloads.  I selected several snowflakes from different kits, sized them, positioned them, and then colored them using either Crumb Cake or Basic Black.  I admit to a little trial and error.  I printed this on regular computer paper and laid a Sizzix pillow box template over the design to position elements where I wanted them to end up on the finished die cut.  I added the dotted line from the Candlelight Chritmas digital kit and position the text around the dotted line. 

Here are the My Digital Studio Products used in the little Pillow Box above:

Stamps, Desginer Kits, & Colors
Bright Hopes\Bright Hopes - snowflake, Color = CRUMB CAKE
Calendar Basics Kit\Calendar Kit - snowflake, Color = CRUMB CAKE
Holiday Blitz\Holiday Blitz - snowflake, Color = CRUMB CAKE
Jolly Bingo Bits\Jolly Bingo Bits - snowflake, Color = CRUMB CAKE, BASIC BLACK
Snowflake Soiree\Snowflake Soiree - snowflake 3, Color = CRUMB CAKE
Designer Kits\Candlelight Christmas\Candlelight Christmas - dotted line, Color = Taken with Team (retired)

Don't forget the FREE downloads and 50% off all Digital scrapbooking kit that ends Mon, Nov 5. 

If we get 18,000 downloads of FREE items Stampin' Up! will give us a fourth FREE download. Email your friends; your sister, your mother...and on my blog, scroll down the left hand side of the page to like this on facebook. Place an order for your free digital items today.  Use the item numbers from the kits below.  Crate project using your free downloads with My Digital Studio software or your favorite design software.

I'm betting you've been thinking about trying digital designing software, as your stamp room has grown more cluttered with barely an empty space to work in.  It is great to have all of the traditional scrapbooking products, but some days you just wish for a clean working space to begin your creative process. 

That's one of the beauties of My Digital Studio.  You can start with a blank page.  Or you can begin with one of the many designer templates or photo templates available.  It is a fast way to try different color combinations and stamps to create your designs before you pull out all your papers and stamps.  Even if you are casing an idea you saw elsewhere, you might want to try different color combinations, designer papers or different stamps.  My Digital Studio design software helps you personalize an idea quickly, and economically.

With so many ladies becoming highly skilled in using digital design software site is filled with handy videos to get you started and keep you going.  The forums are friendly and useful for beginners or experienced users. 

So what do the free downloads look like? And what do they include?

The talented artists at Stampin' Up! shared this idea for using the kit on the site.   This kit makes easy-to-do tags for your packages, advent calendars, Holiday cards and scrapbook pages 

See more projects using these free downloads by searching the site with the code:  DSD2012.

Also through Monday, Nov 5, save 50% on over 50 Digital Designer Kits.  Look through all these great kits here!  Help keep your Holiday budget in line by making personalized gifts, decorations, and projects using these money-saving digital kits, with ideas and help from the site. 

Join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator for $99, get a set of Free Ink Pads worth $49.95, and Order My Digital Studio 2+ as part of your customized starter kit!


If your wish list totals more than $99, a great way to get more value for your dollars spent is to sign up as a demonstrator.   Sign up can be completed on line.

When you sign up as a demonstrator, you  select $125 worth of Stampin' Up! Products for $99, which you were going to spend anyway.  And you will save 20% or more on your future purchases. Stampin' Up!'s New Demonstrator Starter Kit is completely customizable with the products you want and need! Build your Starter Kit your way!

For just $99, you get

  • Your choice of up to $125 worth of any current Stampin' Up! products!

That's a total value of $190!

Plus, from November 1 through December 16, you’ll get a FREE collection of Classic Stampin’ Pads®—a $49.95 value—when you become a demonstrator.

It’s an ink-redible time to join -- or rejoin-- the Stampin’ Up! family!   And if you choose to join or re-join as a hobby demonstrator rather than making Stamin' Up! a business, I'll buy your business supply pack (catalogs, order forms, etc) from you for $25.  Bottom line:  That means your $99 starter kit will end up costing you only $75 and you'll still receive the FREE collection of Stampin' Pads worth $49.95.   Click here to get the details.  Then let's talk, and I'll help your through the on-line sign up process.

Stampin' Up! Open House Samples

These are the samples we made at my pre-convention, mini open house.  Each person chose which of the new In-Colors for 2011-2013 they liked best and made a Fancy Favors Basket. They also made a card using all 5 of the new In-Colors.

The basket showcased 5 of the new catalog items, including the Ribbon Punch, the Delicate Doilies stamp set, two of shapes from the new Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die (notices that the Die doesn't just include the 3 Pennant shapes, it also includes two doily shapes), and, of course, the new In-color Textured cardstock.

Here's a close-up of the card.  The card includes all five of the new 2011-2013 In-Colors and uses the new Triple Layer Punch from the Summer Mini Catalog.  The sentiment is from the Swirls & Curls Verses Hostess set from the Summer mini, which you can download for free, here.  I also used three Rhinestone brads for a little extra bling and used the Mat Pack (105826) and Paper-Piercing Tool (116631) to create the line of holes across the top of the flowers.

As always, it was great seeing old friends and meeting new friends in a fun, crafty afternoon.  Sign up on my Meet-up site for an invitation to my post Stampin' Up! Convention open house.  Or for notification of upcoming classes.  Not from the Houston, TX area?  Sign up anyway, and let me know if you're intrested in a virtual Open House!  I'll have samples from convention swaps and lots of new tips for using your Stampin' Up! supplies for end-of-summer, and fall holiday projects. 

I've always waited until after Convention to do a new-catalog open house.  However, because Stampin' Up! gives demonstrators the opportunity to purchase a selection of new merchandise a month before the new catalog debuts, demonstrators have an opportunity to create samples so we are ready to share when the new catalogs arrive.  And the creative idea for the card we made at our open house?  Why, from the Stampin' Up! site, of course! I added my own spin by using the new Swirls and Curls Verses Hostess set from the Summer Mini catalog, and added rhinestone brads.  I love that Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to be a hobby demonstrator.  Or to earn extra money doing something fun.

Here are the new products for the new catalog showcased on the basket and cards:

Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (122464); Punched images in this punch layer beautifully with images in the Bold Blossom Set.

Perfect Pennants Bigz Die (123126).  I'm thrilled with the creative options this Bigz L Die provides.  The Bigz Dies are ideal for cutting thicker materials and multiple layers.  You will need the extended cutting pads to use this die with your Big Shot die cutting machine.

The Delicate Doilies Clear Mount Stamp (122592) includes fun new shapes that coordinate perfectly with our punches and Designer Series Papers.  This stamp set is available in wood mount, too, and is also available as a digital download.

The Large Lace Ribbon Border Punch (122362) can be used as a lace or vintage touch or cut out the flower designs and use separately.

If you're thinking about placing an order larger than $99 for new merchandise from the just-released Stampin' Up! Catalog and Idea Book, think about how much more you could purchase if you saved 20 percent on all your Stampin' Up! purchases.  Read about our $99 sign-up-and-save offer, now.  Offer good until the end of July. 

I'm here to answer any questions you may have.
