My Digital Studio Contest Entries 2011

These were my entries for Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio contest for 2011:

I think a friend said my Seattle scrapbook page looked like an advertisement you'd find in a magazine. Not sure that is what I was going for...I just went real simple and highlighted some of the sights I saw on my "girls trip" with my mom.

The first project uses the Spooky Bingo Bits set from the Idea Book & Catalog with the cellophane bags from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The cellophane bags are a great find, you get 50 of them for only $2.50. Here I have filled them with pixie sticks, a Halloween pencil and M&Ms.

Not a Convention Swap

This card was going to be one of my Stampin' Up Convention swaps, until I came up with a different one that I liked better. I used the new 2011-2013 In Colors (Calypso Coral, Indigo Island, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder), Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die, and My Friend stamp set. It was a different way to display the new In Colors.

June Club

I have had the Aviary stamp for quite a while, but never have used it. I finally got the chance to play. Both word sayings come from the Best Dad Ever stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalog.

The colors in the Think of You card are Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, So Saffron (Daffodil Delight ink), and Pear Pizazz with Crumb Cake being the base. Don't you just love the little owl in the Thinking of You card?!

The colors used here in the Happy Birthday card is Poppy Parade and Basic Black. I love all the different bird cages that come with the Aviary stamp set.

June 2011 Background Calendar

I designed the palm tree out of punches and the surf boards are from the new Summer Splash brush stamp set that just came out. The numbers and the June are also from new digital downloads...Month by Month and Day by Day stamp brush sets. I'm ready for some sun, how about you?

Flowers & Father's Day

Here is the follow-up to my digital Father's Day post. This is the card I made with the Best Dad Ever stamp set found in the Summer Mini Catalog. The colors I used are River Rock, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso.

I love this next color combination: Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, So Saffron & Kraft. I also love the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch in the Summer Mini Catalog.

This is just a different view of the card, so you can see that I've raised the top layer of the flower to give the card a little dimension.

Flowers & Father's Day

One of the hostess items you can get if you have a Stampin' Up party over $150 is the Cheerful Treat Digital Content CD (Level 1 Hostess item in the new Summer Mini Catalog). I love designing cards on My Digital Studio. Here is a simple card I made using the Cheerful Treat digital content.

I also created this card on My Digital Studio for Father's Day, which will be here before we know it! I will be posting an actual card (not digital) later this week. Enjoy!

Hi everyone,

I know that it is a little late for the Easter card project, but I've been having problems with my computer. This was the soonest I could get them posted. I got the instructions on how to do the bunny on the Easter card from Kay Sha - here is the link to her blog with instructions: .

Water Bottle Decor

In the church that I attend (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) the women have an organization called the Relief Society. The Relief Society Presidency, or the women running the organization, will often give each lady a small gift for their birthday. I designed these four different water bottle birthday "dress ups" for a friend of mine using My Digital Studio.

To assemble, simply cut out each individual label, fold two inches from the top and punch a whole in the top using the 1 1/4" circle punch. I then stapled an individual serving on Crystal Light to the top and placed a bow over the staple.

Feb 2011 Club Projects

The colors I used in the projects are Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Tangerine Tango, and Melon Mambo and the size of the cards are 3X3. Because I love My Digital Studio, I decided to design a 8X8 scrapbook page of the projects. Enjoy!

Birthday Bash

My mom needed me to come up with a birthday card. She wanted me to match the wrapping paper, so that is where I got the color scheme from. Here are the three digital cards I came up with using My Digital Studio. Which one is your favorite?
