Memories with Stampin' Up! MDS 2

It's been a busy Friday morning for me!  I have been working on a set of handmade cards for a gift exchange at a Christmas party tonight and the Mr. and I went to the Christmas tree farm to carry home our tree!

 

Day in the Life My Digital Studio
Christmas Tree Cutting in MDS 2
After we had the tree upright in the living room and gave it a good drink of water, I grabbed my laptop to preserve the memory with MDS 2 and photos I had taken with my iPhone.

This will be another page included in my year long scrapbooking project, A Day in the Life.  You can read more about it and my word of the year HERE.

Love MDS 2!  I'm still discovering and learning to work with all the wonderful upgrades from the original My Digital Studio.  I love that I can import templates from different designer kits as a starting point.  Takes all that guess work out of "where to put what" on the page!  You can even take a 12 x 12 template and pull it into an 8 x 8 photobook which is what I did here!  Love!

If you haven't tried digital crafting, I encourage you to try MDS2.  You can try it FREE for  30 days!  Nothing to lose!  I still love working with paper, but this program makes it easy to preserve memories and all with the awesome Stampin' Up! art work.

If you'd like to jump in and take that "step", you can get the free trial HERE.

I'm off to wrap my gift for tonight!  Have an awesome start to your weekend!

Stampin' Up! Video Tutorial - Easy Christmas Gift Tags

Stampin up easy christmas gift tags
Stampin' Up! Easy Christmas Gift Tags and Video Tutorial

After Black Friday shopping, we have quite a few gifts that need to be wrapped.  With that being said, wrapped gifts need gift tags and I ALWAYS hand -stamp my gift tags.  Now mind you, there have been times when I really make some fancy- schmancy ones, but this year I was going for quick, get-it-done tags.  "Quick" CAN be pretty and unique and I think I accomplished that. :)  
Here's a video tutorial with the "how-to" for some pretty and easy tags.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Ornaments Framelits Card Idea

 

Stampin Up Holiday Ornament Framelits
Stampin' Up! Holiday Ornaments Framelits
and Greetings of the Season
It's been a busy few days in our home with cooking, visiting, eating, sharing, and shopping!  The countdown to Christmas is on!
I wanted to share the Christmas card idea using the Holiday Ornament Framelits and Candlelight Christmas Specialty Paper.  The photo below shows a closeup of the ornaments.

The designer paper print and the Lacy Brocade Texture on the Core'dinations card stock make a great combo and the glimmer paper adds that special touch of sparkle for this holiday card. 
Are you sending handmade cards this year?  I have to admit that I am a bit behind but plan to work on getting mine completed soon!
