Valentine's Day Cards and digital Valentine's Downloads

  • Another Valentine's Day Swap Card from Leadership
  • Get started on your Valentine Cards today with these MDS downloads 
  • My Library App to manage your MDS Digital downloads 

Here's another card I designed for Leadership swaps last week.  I fell in love with the Language of Love stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog and couldn't wait to use it.  I know I'll be using many more of the cute flag, triangle and heart shapes from that set before Valentine's Day is over. 

The heart is heat embossed in gold, and the Champagne glitter paper compliments it nicely.  Its so nice to have so many matching products.  The Coastal Cabana card stock matches the designer paper and the ruffled ribbon. I used the Fancy Fans embossing folder as the background.  Stampin' Up offers a wide selection of affordable embossing folders and Framelit shapes you can use if you want to case this card, but don't have the exact items I used.

As much as I would prefer to use traditional scrapbooking products for my Scrapbooking, I find I just don't have the time or the space to create multiple pages that all match.  As a digital photo nut who often captures 500 photos at a time, I converted to digital scrapbooking to save time and space.  Going digital, I've created more scrapbook pages this year than I have in the past 6 years -- and they are so easy to share! 

With Stampin' Up! designer papers, cardstock colors, punch shapes and a wealth of pre-formatted templates available I have endless possibilities for creating original content or for customizing templates using colors that match my photos.

Love Bug in My Digital Studio scrapbooking software

I was playing with My Digital Studio software earlier this evening and after dropping some photos from my family's Facebook pages into the quick templates in My Digital Studio software, I stumbled across a feature that lets me make an on-line album and add it as a slideshow to my blog. 

I stated with this great page and the rest of the pages just seemed to fall into place.

I'm curious to find out if  this slide show works.  Click on the replay button below.  Then, leave me a comment one way or the other.   If it does work, this would be a fast, easy way to quickly add tutorials for projeccts onto my website...a plus for both you and me!

Find more samples like this on My Digital Studio

I can't wait to get to Stampin' Up's! convention the middle of next month.  I'm registered for My Digital Studio software classes and I'm sure I'll return with even more ideas to share with you.  

You've been to scrapbooking conferences, so you know how much you love the inspirational ideas and the photos you take of all the wonderful samples you've seen.  I was just going through my photos from the last Stampin' Up! Convention and I was amazed to find over 1500 photos!  I have to remind myself that the samples and demos we see at the Stampin' Up! Convention are some of the most professional, creative ideas available in the paper crafting industry today.  Looking at them just once doesn't do justice to these photos packed with design ideas as well as business tips for turning your love of paper crafts into a business!  I can't wait to see what Stampin' Up! has in store for us this year.  Just 16 more days until Convention!

If you've thought about joining Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator, now is a great time to join.  Excitement at the start of the new catalog year can help set you on the path to a wonderful new hobby or a rewarding career.  And Fall and  Winter are the best times of the year to be a demonstrator.  Watch a quick demo of some of the stamping techniques you can do with your Starter Kit once you sign up as a demonstrator.

Naturally Mother

It getting warmer outside and everything is fresh and new!  Colorful flowers are popping out of the ground, and in Texas, the humidity is still low -- it is simply the best time of the year!

I had so much fun making this card.  I used the same colors as the flowers my DH planted for me in the front flower bed. Who knew that even the garden store followed fashion colors!   And I was surprised at how fast and easy it was to make this card.  I am so pleased the punch for this stamp set is one of the carry-over items from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini catalog!  There are a number of items you can purchase from the Holiday and Occasions Mini catalog and the Occasions catalog.  You won't find these items posted in the Summer Mini, but you can add stamp and punch numbers below to your order.

I made this for my mom in Minnesota for Mother's Day.  I love that with the Build A Blossom stamp set and Blossom Petals Punch I can create this easy-to-make flower so quickly. 

After stamping the petals in Melon Mambo on Pink Pirouette, I punched them out with the matching Blossoms Petals Punch.  Then I curled the petals slightly with my bone folder.  A few leaves in Always Artichoke were added to the underside and I also used one of the Fabric Designer Brads in the center, although the stamp set comes with a wonderful center (actually, 2 circle centers; a 1/2" and a 1" center stamp) to give you more variety.  This is a very versatile stamp and punch set and one you'll want to add to your collection as soon as possible!  While the stamp set and punch aren't in the catalog, you can still add them to your order buy using the numbers below. 

Stamps:  Build A Blossom - 121994 (Clear); 121923 (wood), Home is where your mother is (retired)
Paper:  Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini), Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Pink Pirouette
Ink:  Always Artichoke, Melon Mambo
Accessories:  Fabric Designer Brads (121880- Occasions Mini), Blossom Petals Punch - 121808, Bone Folder, Eyelet Boarder Punch

On another note, I'm so excited to share with you the new Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog.  Download your free copy today!  Good May 1 - August 31, 2011

Also, this is National Scrapbooking Month.  Look at these great promotions for May and save today.  If you're a mom, this is a great time to drop a hint that Stampin' Up! is what you really want.  Or spend that gift card someone thoughtfully tucked inside your card.

Cupcake Cooper

I couldn't resist doing a quick My Digital Studio page when my brother sent me this photo of Cooper, my grand-nephew sitting excitedly in front of a cupcake. 

 If I were limited to traditional scrapbooking, I would likely add the photo to my collection of "photos-to-scrap-one-day-soon..." box and never see the photo again until he graduated.  My Digital Studio, however, is so quick and easy, and with new downloads being added all the time, I just naturally reach for my (computer) mouse whenever I see a cute photo worthy of its own memory page.

Although I own a wide-carriage printer that will print 12 X 12 pages, I find that my favorite size has become 8-1/2 X 11 for digital pages.  That way I can quickly print them at home onto photo paper, which i usually have on hand, and as soon as they are dry, I protect them in a clear page protectors.  

Stampin' Up! also offers great prices on professional printing of your digital projects, too...from individual pages, to greeting cards to digital scrapbooks, with or without photo covers in a variety of cloth, leather or soft cover books.

For this project, I started with a pre-formatted page out of one of the designer kits downloads, dragged the photo into the pre-formatted photo box, and added a few embellishments from other designer kits.   The frogs and labels are from the Hoppy Memories Digital Kit download. 

Also, if you are just getting started with My Digital Studio, be sure to register for news and updates on the  My Digital Studio Site
  • Tips and Ideas.  I'm always amazed at the video instruction, tips and ideas contributed by other My Digital Studio users. 
  • Help Forums.  When I have a question about using My Digital Studio, I can usually get an answer from someone in the forums in a matter of 30 minutes or so. 
  • Traditional & Digital Creations.  There are plenty of hybrid cards and scrapbook pages and many of the ideas would work with your traditional scrapbooking supplies you already have.
My Digital Studio DVD software (118108), includes over $500 worth of content.  400+ Designer Series Paper Patterns, 62 Stamp Brush Sets, 650+ embellishments, 25 punch shapes, and 140 Designer Templates.  It includes all of this year's In Colors as well as the basic cardstock colors.  You probably switched to digital photos several years ago; why not put that investment in digital technology to work by creating your own scrapbook pages, cards, invitations, and more using digital software!  Order your copy of My Digital Studio Software today!

My Digital Studio - 118108 -US$79.95

Well, time to get ready for a new week.  Enjoy!
