More of My First Design Studio Album

Here are the next four pages of my album. It was so easy and I love the way it turned out.

Added the word together to the layout. "Happy Together" reminds me of the old Turtles song -- that's not what they were playing on Rock Band!

I added the three brads and put layers behind the photos to bring out the red in the pictures. I think it pops!

More to come - stay tuned.


March Stamp-a-Stack

I wanted to take a quick moment and post the cards that are featured in my March classes. They are all so "springy" and make me happy. I don't have time to post the supplies used so if you need to know just post a comment and I'll share.

The first card uses an oldy but goody stamp set -- You Crack Me Up. I love the baby chicks coming out of the eggs. The scalloped paper is from the Shades of Spring DSP using the eyelet border punch.

The second card is cute enough to eat!! That chocolate bunny looks real. I used the Sending Love Specialty paper and the Sale-a-Bration punch. Isn't it adorable?

Here is great masculine card -- at least that's what I think. My husband said he was not wild about the teal cardstock. I told him it was Bermuda Bay and it goes great with the Chocolate Chip. I used the Vintage Label Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Perfect Detail Texturz Plate and Thoroughly Modern DSP. Anyway, what do you all think?

The last card for today is one that I made for the Gateway Glitter 'n Ink One-on-One Monthly Swap. It's so much fun to make one card and send it to your stampin buddy for that month. Each month your buddy changes and you receive back a card from whoever had your name. I liked this card because it was simple and can be for Easter, birthday, Mother's Day, etc. I used the Happy Moments Sale-a-Bration stamp set and Old Olive DSP.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope wherever you are spring is in the air and the birds are chirping!!

My First Design Studio Album

I'm so excited. I realized something about myself this weekend. I have an obsessive personality! I've always been obsessed with crafty things that's how I became a Stampin' Up demonstrator. Recently, my stepdaughter got me obsessed with knitting and because of being a SU demo I've become obsessed with scrapbooking -- well now I have ANOTHER new obsession -- digital scrapbooking using My Design Studio. I received MDS for Christmas from my husband (okay, he just gave me the money so I could order it) and I finally had time to play this weekend. I'M HOOKED!

Check out my first album. I decided to just use one of the beautiful designer kits provided in MDS. I chose Sunny Day to capture our Grames' family summer birthday celebration. I'm going to share a few pages each day so please check back often and let me know what you think. It's always nice to hear from you all!!

Here is my husband (in the middle) and his two brothers and all the kids. My husband's children are all married with children so all the little ones around him are our grandchildren.

This is a better picture of the three Grames boys (my husband is still in the middle).

Kids and Swings make a fun day. These are more of my grandchildren -- I have twelve!
