Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop

It's that time of the month...the first Thursday!  Time for another blog hop!

This month we were working on Spring/Baby or St. Patrick's Day items.  And this month I decided to go all digital and use My Digital Studio for both of my projects!  I also used some Pinterest pins of mine for inspiration.  Check them out!

This card is 5"x7".  The base is Crumb Cake.  The papers that I used are from the Everyday Enchantment DSP that is only available for one more month as a Sale-a-Bration benefit!  Love these papers for all things Spring!  I also used an Everyday Enchanment Brad, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon and Pearls.

One my favorite things about using My Digital Studio to create is that you can take a punch (the scallop and the heart) and make them any size you want!  You can't do that with traditional punches.


My other item this month is a 12x12 scrapbook page of the first time my son used a sippy cup.  Isn't he adorable??!!  That's Noah!

Colors used: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Not Quite Navy, Real Red and Old Olive.

One of my most favorite embellishment that Stampin Up has for MDS is the tape!  It comes in 4 different colors and I LOVE to use it!


My Digital Studio TIP: Be sure to add a "Drop Shadow" to every element that you add to your page.  This will just give your page more dimension!

You have inspired me to play more with MDS! Your projects (and Noah) are absolutely adorable. I'm also now following you on Pinterest. :)

Great advice on using the drop shadow feature Kim. it really is the simplest way to add dimension to MDS projects. I love your projects, btw. I'm getting into dog scrapping a little bit more and all the inspiration I can get in that area :-) so thanks for sharing

Tonya said...

Great MDS projects. The card is cute and could easily be non MDS too. Thanks for the inspiration!

Pam Staples said...

Oh, I just LOVE your MDS card and scrapbook page! These are awesome. I'm working on our profile book for our 2nd adoption and using MDS this time and I'm having so much fun. Thanks for sharing.
