Baby Album

The past few months a friend and I have been using MDS to create a very special book. It's a book for her precious twin baby boy who passed just a few days after he arrived. It's been a difficult task to create such a precious treasure but it's been so rewarding to be able to do something so special together. Creating this album has really made me truly appreciate the creativeness MDS allows the user. The focus of this very special book was the pictures so the background is simple but still an important part of the book. Can't wait to see the precious treasure we were able to create together. Order your copy of "My Digital Studio" here.

Butterfly Thanks

I participated in one other swap. It was for 3x3 Love Notes. I had to use the new Butterfly Prints stamp set on this card so it came together rather quickly. I found that it was very easy to stamp the Whisper White CS and then run it through the Big Shot (and it usually looked nicer as well :) The stamped butterfly is cut out after it was stamped and then backed with a punch out from the butterfly punch.

Layered Flower

This year I signed up for two specific swaps. I was so nervous about my swaps...not sure if they were up to par, but here's what I came up with. I knew I wanted to use the new Rhinestone Jewels so it was pretty easy to put together a punch flower to match. I was going to use the color coach for this card. I started out with Soft Suede but quickly changed it to Early Espresso...just the added touch the card needed! Order your supplies here.

Ink: Early Espresso
