Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Hello!  So a HUGE thanks to all the awesome ladies who came out last night!  I had a blast :)  Today's post is the project we made using MDS.  I then took this picture and framed it along with some real ribbon and I also popped the actual picture up.  I'm pretty happy with the end result!  Remember to message me by Monday April 29th if you would like to be a part of my MDS 101 class.  Its going to be a lot of fun and you will be learn a TON!  and have no fear if you can't attend the actual class night, all the instructions will be mailed to you in PDF form.
Hope you had a wonderful Saturday, I know we did...can't wait to share some MDS pages of Grandpa's new addition :) Stay tuned!

Downtown Grunge fun!

Well I'm not going to complain about the weather so that I don't jinx the weekend forecast, cuz it looks fantabulous!!  Today's post is a quick one as I'm finishing up my prep for tmw's MDS 101 intro, can't wait!!!  This is a real quick page I did up and framed for my cousin's little daughter, how cute is she?  Love these pics (well I'm a little biased as hubby did them) but I just love them.  The paws are merely circle punches in different sizes with shadows behind, super simple, and of course the DSP and frames around the pics are from Downtown Grunge, love it!  have a super evening and if you're interested in this awesome software send me a msg!

Happy Birthday Lil' Sis!

Happy Sunday All!  Well it was sunny this am, so not going to complain, at least we were able to enjoy it for a little while!  Been a great weekend, even made it to the gym (thanks Heather!) Today's post is a card I made using the Creative Elements set.  Love this set!  Colours are Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and the ribbon is Gumbo Green.  This one goes out to lil sis, she loves yellow so thought it was fitting :)  Have an awesome night and a great day back to work tmw :)  Steph

MDS and home decor

WOW 3 posts in one week, I'm on a roll (actually its an MDS high!)  Home with sick Hannah today so have been doing some playing :)  I have a bare wall in my kitchen and wanted to create a picture to frame, and with last weeks (I think it was last week) My Digital Studio Challenge I thought this was perfect!  Thanks again Kim and Heather!  So I created this by starting off with a 'custom' project.  I choose to make it 11x14 as that's the size I plan on printing.  I then made my pie graph and added some favourite fonts and voila.  Now have I got you interested???  hehehe thanks for stopping by!  Steph

Chalkboard MDS style

Yes you are in the right place!  How do you like my updated blog?  I was in need of a change.  Still LOVE Spice Cake, but my current favourite is the Back to School kit - LOVE LOVE LOVE the chalkboard paper in this kit!  Today's post is a quickie, I hope I've sparked your interest into the digital world!  This is the cover page for Hannah and Kayla's 2012 album (which I almost have done and there is NO way I could've done this without MDS!)  So hope you like, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  Have a great night :) Steph

MDS'n Steven Tyler

Hello!  Well I'm not going to complain about the rain, cuz it means Spring is here right?  Today's post is 2 of my pages from my All About Me album that I am working on.  I have literally started from square one with this album, going from baby pics to today, and have had a lot of fun with it.  These 2 pages were unbelievably simple.  I wanted to showcase the AMAZING Steven Tyler (and thank you Mandy for sharing your pics!)  This was a super awesome concert and I would definitely go see them again!  So to make my pages I used a couple of my favourite pics for the whole background of the page.  This is super easy, you just need to go into your background paper and select 'custom' and then you can bring in a photo.  I added a couple more pics on each side of the pages, some stars (cuz he's a ROCKSTAR!) and then the font is a free one I downloaded and it actually had the wings on it, perfect!  So hope you like...and I've made you curious about MDS join me in my home April 26th at 7:30pm, you won't be disappointed!  Thanks for stopping by, Steph

Tea Time?

Well the hubby is away so it's time to play...only I'm making it an early night.  Sore throat and a little chill, so off to bed I will go (and if you know me, yes I sleep VERY well when Aaron is travelling!)  This is one of the cards we did last month for Club.  I cannot remember the stamp set (sorry) but it is 2 box set and I love it (I'll post the name asap).  The idea is CASED from one of Heather Summers' cards, I loved how she used the Vine emboss folder and then cut it into strips.  Some Midnight Muse ribbon, rhinestone jewels, paper piercing and there she is!   Have a great night and thanks for stopping by :)

Hot for Honeycomb

This was the first thing I ordered out of the new Mini, the Honeycomb embossing folder.  Definitely a 'must have' for Big Shot'ers!  The folder is great on its own, or you can jazz it up by embossing some DSP (like the Sycamore Street free pkg for Sale-a-bration!) then cut the hexagons out, glue, and voila!  I added a rosette using the Sycamore DSP, button from SAB, oh and yes the stamped image is from the Bloomin Marvelous set (SAB)...all free!  Hope you like today's card :)  Thanks for stopping by, Steph
