MDS Easle Calendar

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have made several of these wonderful easle calendars and have a variety of different styles that I created in Stampin Up’s My Digital Studio.  Once I receive them back from the printer I embellish the pages with ribbons, rhinestones, pearls and other bling to make them a great gift.  These calendars can be customized to include a picture for each month and make great gifts for around $30 (without embellishments). If you are interested in doing it yourself, then give My Digital Studio #118103 a try.  There is also a separate page for each month where you can add photos and by the end of the year you have a neat little photo album to record your year in review! If you would rather me customize it for you then feel free to contact me at cathymorgan@wideopenwest.com to make arrangements.  These make great gifts and the calendar does not have to start with Jan it can be any month!

Christmas Countdown

Believe it or not it is the 25th of the month and that means the countdown to Christmas is on and in double digits- Just 61 days til Christmas so even less for getting your holiday cards designed and mailed.  Todays post includes Cammie’s design using the retired A Cardinal Christmas stampset and this card serves as a card and book mark gift all in one.  Another card is from one of our favorite “sistah” designers, Yvonne Crook, using the movers and shapers die and layered paper behind to create a beautiful ornament.  The comfort and joy stamp is from the wordplay Stampset and finished with ribbon and a bow.  Finally, my card is a quick and easy My Digital Studio digital card that can easily become a hybrid card or can be adapted  for a tradtional stamped card using any heart stamps and punches you have on hand.

MyDigital Studio Hybrid Card

Digital scrapbooking and card making is all the rage now and StampinUp offers a product called My Digital Studio that includes lots of digital downloads of the designer paper. stamps, and embellishments (both retired and current) that we have grown to love.  The software is easy to use and you can create cards, photo albums, calendars and scrapbook pages that you can print through Stampin Up and get a great quality product.

I love to create hybrid cards by using MDS to design my card fronts and then print the card fronts from StampinUp.  When I need a quick card I grab the MDS card and then embellish the card with traditional elements thus creating a beautiful hybrid.

Here is a sample of one of my simple designs.
