Wednesday Ryan will be coming home!  Kyle is already here he came in last Thursday about midnight.  I’m so excited to have all the boys home.  It’s not easy having them so far away.  It will be Ryan’s first time to fly alone – and of course it is the busiest day of the year at the airport.  I think I may be just a little stressed tomorrow until I have him in my car!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Scattered Merry Christmas

Scattered Merry Christmas

Hey – 5 days in a row!  yes – 5 days of posts in a row – maybe I can stay on my posting schedule now.  Today I have card #3 from my Christmas Card Stamp a Stack classes.  This idea came from my good friend Cindy Schuster – it was a swap she made for her Artisan Team at convention – I made a few changes from her original – including adding the frosted sequins from the Holiday catalog (they were not available yet when Cindy made her card).

scattered-merry The Smoky Slate later is embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Embossing folder and then use the Whisper White craft ink pad to rub ink over it.  On the envelope I used the edge of the Merry Stamp to add the snowflakes.  Here is a full list of supplies -

MDS Blog Hop – What are you Working on?

I’m back again – my second post as a guest on the MDS Blog Hop!!  Twice a month a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators join together to share their passion for digital designing with My Digital Studio.  My friend Cindy asked me to join them for the month of November!  I’m very thankful to be joining these talented ladies for the second time this month. These ladies are all very talented and have amazing digital projects.  So come hop along and see what everyone has created.  The theme for this week is “What are you working on?” .  Everyone will be sharing what they are currently working on in MDS.

10295772_10201596378183638_8781518809722083584_nI decided I better get started on a Christmas card if I’m going to do a digital card for this year.  The past few years I have made a digital card to send out to our family that includes photos and sometimes some notes about what we have been up to this past year.  Now as the boys are older and moving away it may be more important to keep long distance family posted on what they are up to.  For right now I’m playing around with a 5×7 size post card.  Which gives me a front and back to design.  But I may change my mind before it’s all done.  I also need some family photos of the 5 of us.  With the boys all being here for Thanksgiving that is one of my goals for the weekend!  For now this is what I have for the front – I want a photo with all of us together but for now I have the boys.  Originally I didn’t have the snowflakes on there – I may decide later to delete those.

2014 Christmas Card-001For the back side I wanted to have an individual photo of each of the boys and then Greg and I and I wanted to include the dogs too.  These may not be the final photos that I use.  I wrote a quick note about each of the boys and I’ll let each of them read it to see if they want to add/delete or change anything.

2014 Christmas Card-002

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hop through and see the amazing things that everyone else has done with this weeks theme.  Next in line is Cindy – click on the NEXT button below to hop over to her blog.  These ladies do this every month so join them again in December.  Thank you ladies for letting me join you!1487274_10201501101681785_1819447505219309930_n

All is Calm Tree

All is Calm Tree

Yesterday I shared the first card from my Christmas Card Stamp A Stack classes.  Here is number 2.

all-is-calm-treeThis card idea started with a card I saw on Pinterest.  It’s a pretty simple card with the Washi Tape – I embossed first and added the washi tape over the embossed trees but you could also do it the other way around and then the embossing would be embedded in the washi tape too.  With the matching Tree punch for the Festival of Trees stamp set you just stamp and punch and done!  This is a good one to replicate and make a bunch of.  In my Stamp a stack class everyone made 5 of these.  For my customers that were waiting on the Tree Punch – the backorders have shipped and should be here any day now.

Here is a full list of supplies – all are available in my online store.

Beauty of the Season

Beauty of the Season

I’m back – hopefully blogging pretty regularly for the next little while.  My boys will be home for Thanksgiving and I’m very excited about that.  I have one more class Wed. night and then Kyle will be home Thursday night.  Ryan will be here next week just before Thanksgiving.  I’m looking forward to a long weekend with everyone being home.

I had two Christmas Card Stamp A Stack classes this year.  One was this past weekend and the other was last month.  At each one there were 4 different card designs and everyone made 5 of each design for a total of 20 cards.  I wanted to share some of those with you.  This first card is one that I created with a simple little technique using the Magnetic Platform and framelits in a different way.

beauty-of-seasonHere is how I created this card -

  1. On the Crumb Cake layer I stamped the Beauty of the Season cardinal image in the center with Black StazOn ink.
  2. Place the cardstock on top of the magnetic platform.  Place the Labels Collection Framelit over the stamped image – the magnet will hold it in place so you can trace the frame – both inside and outside – using the Project Life Pen.  This creates a frame around the stamped image.  Just a different way to use the magnetic platform and your framelits.
  3. Stamp the bird image again on Cherry Cobbler card stock and cut out – glue it on top of the first image.
  4. Use the Stamp & Pierce Mat, the Essentials Piercing template and the Piercing tool to add a pierced accent to each corner of the panel.
  5. color in the berries with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.
  6. Tie a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding around the card stock piece and then attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card stock base.
  7. Stamp a Crumb Cake envelope to match.
