Hi Everyone
I actually posted this and deleted it a few weeks ago. I made it for ADTHIS, but the AD didn't go up so I deleted it, and now it seems the site will no longer be update, I'm gutted! Anyways, I thought I would but the page back up. The DSP is Autumn Meadowns from the mini with matching C/S Really Rust and Taken with Teal. I used the Spiral Edge punch on the teal: I curled the edges of my paper for a cool frame: a technique I saw at 52 sketches. In the bottom right corner is window sheet from the Seasonal Pieces collection. They ad a nice touch to the page, then I just finished it off with some of our various Chip board alpha's which I inked with Craft ink and Corduroy buttons.

More My Digital Studio Fun

Hi Everyone
Sorry I've been so busy with the Christmas Stampin' Season that I have not had time to post! So here is a quickie: I made this page on My Digital Studio by SU!. This paper is an add on to the kit, 118115 MDS DWNLDA - DSP NIGHT AND DAY $6.95. I used it on a LO a few posts down too. Love this paper ..and it's pattern version on MDS. This is just a nice, clean and simple LO, but I love it, hope you do to.

Sponging Christmas fun

Hi Everyone
I want to start off this post with a little chat about ADTHIS; unfortunately, I think the site may stop running soon as the current admin has some personal issues in her life that is not allowing her to keep the blog going. I'm gutted by this as I love this blog and loved designing for it the past few months. If ANYBODY is interested in taking this Blog over please email me and I will get you in touch with the current admin to make it happen.
Now onto my card:
This was the card my Technique Gals made this month. I can not take credit for this idea, I've seen a variety of these cards floating around on different sites; this is just my version. I love this card because it totally fits my criteria: looks hard/elegant but is SUPER easy to make! This is a 5 min card! And it uses minimal supplies too! ALL the ink is Night of Navy: sponged onto Glossy White C/S and used the Santa from the WONDERING WORDS set from the mini and LOVELY AS A TREE set for the landscaping, (which is a total classic, if you don't have this set yet, GET IT). We cut the whisper white c/s on the bottom with the Cutting Kit scissor wheel, love this tool! And then we glittered the snowy hill with 2 way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds. Cut the corners with the Ticket Corner punch and just mount it up, add some Silver Brads and your good to go! This card will fit into our Medium Square Envelopes, which you can stamp up with the Santa! What a great card to send out this year!

Oldie but a Goodie: Announcing FREE Classes

Hi Everyone
This is actually a card I made last year...found the picture today while looking on my computer. Thought it was worth posting; I love this card. There is a ton of little details on it that you just can't tell from a picture. Everything is hand cut and popped out, and water colored too. I must admit, this is not the best water coloring I've ever done...I have gotten' better since this card! Click on it to make it bigger and you can see some of the the little North Pole sign I made with the Word Window Punch and the small arrow from the My Way punch.
Even though I made this last year, all supplies except the ribbon are still available to order. The stamp sets are : HOLIDAY LINE UP ( love this set because I think Rudolf looks drunk!): LOADS OF LOVE + L O L ACCESSORIES..I really like these sets, I don't use it often, but when I do, the cards always look awesome, and I love to use the Jumbo Eyelets for wheels.

You still have time to book into some of my up coming classes: I have 2 spots open in my Dashing through the Snow class Nov 27 for only $35 and you keep Dasher ( check a few posts down for details).
I have also put up some FREE CLASSES!!! That's right FREE!
Class 1) Order ANY large punch or your choice(from me) and you'll get to come and make 9 punch art tags for free Dec 15 7-9. 3 designs, 3 each.
Class 2) Order the Stamp set Sparkly & Bright (from me) and you'll get to come and make 15 Christmas tags! Both classes on the 15 : you can book into both on the same night!

My Digital Studio fun

Hi Everyone

Yesterday I created 12 pages!!! And my scrap desk is SPOTLESS!!! How? With My Digital Studio! This program is soo easy to use and I love it, I can't wait to get them printed off. The "paper" I used is from the mini NIGHT AND DAY, you can down load it for only $6.95 straight to your computer!
118115 MDS DWNLDA - DSP NIGHT AND DAY $6.95 I also used Frames Flourish around the picture, this set comes with the My Digital Studio Disks. It is sooo loaded, you won't need to download extra's unless you really want too...which I did as I LOVE this paper!

Do you already own a digital scrap booking program and don't want to invest in another one? I understand this may be an option for you. YOU can download SU!'s digital products and purchase them individually and run them with your own Digital Kits on your computer....I must admit I do not know much about the digital world..I only use My Digital Studio as it is "dummy proof!"...but those of you who are digital scrappers already, should know how to ADD kits onto your existing product.

For those of you who have not tried Digital yet..WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?? It is not CHEATING...which is what I have heard from a few people; you are still creating your own pages..just with less mess and quicker. Did you know you can print off pages and Hybrid them....add your own traditional embellishments to them and put them into your album. With SU! My Digital Studio you can also make MOVIES, CARDS, INTERACTIVE DISKS in addition to SCRAP PAGES, STITCH BOUND BOOKS , CALENDARS. The small investment for this product will be paid off quickly when you catch up on your old pictures in a week end! PLUS the gift giving options. You don't have to slave 20 hours on 1 scrap book to give away to your in-laws for Christmas, then spend another 20 making it for your own Mom who is sad she didn't get it!!! Now you just make 1 projects in a few hours, and print off MULTIPLES!!! This will save you a TON of time this year! Same as your Christmas Cards; don't have time to make them this year? Design 1 digitally and order 50!
If you'd like to order My Digital Studio go to my Web Site HERE and click SHOP NOW on the top Right and get it shipped straight to your house for the same price it would be to ship it to mine!
# 118108 for only $106.95 PLUS you will get to choose a FREE Decore Element upto $22.95

PHEW! I can tell you a bunch more...but this is the gist in a nut shell!

Snow blocks

Hi Everyone
I stayed up late last night to get some crafting done as I am sooo far behind on everything because of the boys sickness last week. Not going to complain about it as they took it like troopers and were healthy in time for Halloween!! I am soo lucky-grateful that they did not get crazy sick.
I made this blocks last nigh; cute right? They are going to look so perfect on my mantle place that is being built right now!!! I really like how they turned out; so much so that I will be putting it up for a class. Make sure you click on the picture to see it larger, that way you can see how glimmery it is. I really love the new Shimmery paint, I'm glimmering everything with it! The Blocks($13.95) and Decore Elements ($13.95) are from the Mini: click on the link top right to open it. You get a full 8.5 x 11" page of elements: you can spell out SNOW, JOY, or NOEL; plus it has snowflakes, holly, decorations and the cute little snowy treed hills that I used on the red blocks. I've decorated the tops and the sides of the red blocks but you just can't see it, and I still have tons of the elements left. I'm going to use them on a scrap page; I love to use decore elements in my scrapbooking! They look like AMAZING rub ons!!!!
I'll post later what the price of the class will be and when as I have not figured that out yet! Drop me a line if your interested: this would make a cute Hostess Class as well!
