My Digital Studio

I got My Digital Studio - Stampin' Up's Digital software program - for my birthday this year and it's been so much fun to play with!! I made a flyer for an upcoming church event and have just loved the ease of use and all the images and options!! If you're a digital scrapbooker or crafter, this program is awesome!!

Here's my flyer with the Baroque Motif image along the bottom!

This was just a fun page I made. I love that you can put in digital ribbons!! My bows are never that perfect!! LOL!

January Projects

My husband came home for a month in December and I didn't get Christmas cards sent out so I decided to mail out some New Year's cards!!

Really simple. I punched the snowflake, glued paper behind it and stamped the sentiment (from Teeny Tiny Wishes). I love my corner rounder punch and had to do that as well for the finishing touch! :)

All done and ready to mail!!

Here are some quick 3x3 thank you notes I made...

And some Owl thank you's that my daughter made to give out to her friends!! Pretty cute! She's following in my footsteps as a stamper!!

Address Book Project

I've been meaning to redo my address book. Being a military family means we add a lot of new names to it everywhere we go and my old one was getting quite full. So, I saw a fun idea somewhere (sorry to whomever had the idea... I'm not recalling where I saw it!!) to use business card holders and a three ring binder! That way you can always add more to it!! I hit the local office supply store and bought a little green binder, some business card holders, dividers, pockets and markers.

I cut a bunch of white cardstock down to 31/2 x 2 and started copying over the addresses.

I love the pocket in the front where I can keep stamps and a pen...

So easy to read, change, add to - whatever!

And pockets for all the miscellaneous postage supplies!
I love how it turned out!! Now I just need to make cute cover for it!!

Christmas Banner

I made this darling banner for my sister-in-law for Christmas!!! I think the white burlap is adorable with the red snowflakes. I used red glitter on them too, but it's hard to see... Very fun gift!
