SU! My Digital Studio project

I finally purchased My Digital Studio! Here is a hybrid project I created. It is a 5 3/4" x 8 3/4" chipboard journal. I created the background using MDS (Night and Day DSP - retired, Perfect Plum cardstock) and then added ribbon and embellishments. Supplies used are journal, sticky pages, Filigree Designer Brads, 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (Basic Black), 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White), and 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (Basic Black - retired). Enjoy!

Best Wishes

Here is a card I made with some of the SU! new colors.       

I am loving the new SU! colors!

I am absolutely loving the new SU! colors. The new color coach is so easy to use that my 10 year old can use it. Here are a couple of projects I've made with the new colors and paper. The first project is a magnetic bookmark. I used the Totally Tess Clear Mount stamp set, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, and Whisper White papers, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write markers to color in the stamps. The second is a card made for someone who is moving and heading to a new job. I used the Sincere Salutations Wood Mount stamp set, Round Tab paper punch, Papers and inks used are Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, and Marina Mist. Hope you enjoy looking at them!

Father's Day Challenge - Hope my Dad doesn't peek!

This is my Father's Day project for MyPinkStamper's Father's Day Challenge. It was really fun to make. It was the first time I've done a folding book made from three 12x12 pages. All products used are SU! I used the Sweet Pea DSP, all other papers, ink, markers, and ribbon are in Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and Pumpkin Pie. Stamps used are Well Scripted, All Holidays, Wings of Friendship, and Vintage Labels. I used various paper punches, the Hodgepodge Hardware kit, Star brads, Circle Brads, and Rhinstone brads. I also used my BigShot with the TopNote Die and the Curly Label Die (Magnetic Movers and Shapers). I made a coordinating card to go with it. The pictures are in order - the closed book and card, the first page, the middle page, and then the last page. Hope you all like it!

Scallop Circle Album

Ok.... let me try this a different way. I was unable to upload these earlier due to server issues, so hopefully this works! See all details in my post regarding Mother's Day Gifts and Cards. Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day Cards

Seems I am having issues with the server I am on... I am going to try to upload the Scallop Circle chipboard album pictures later, but here are the cards I made for Mother's Day.  See details in my post below!

Mother's Day Gifts and Card

It's Mother's Day! Here are the chipboard albums and cards I made for my Mom and Mother-In-Law. Everything was done using SU! (c) products. I used the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper, 2009-2010 In-Colors Cardstock, Ink, Markers, and Ribbon. I also used Hemp Twine, Pumpkin Pie Ribbon, Whisper White Cardstock and Ribbon, and Garden Green Cardstock. Stamp sets used were Vintage Labels, Messages for Mom and Flight of the Butterfly. Punches used were Butterfly, Large Oval, Scallop Oval, Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, Scallop Trim Border, Curly Label and Small Heart. I used Sticky Pages to adhere the paper to the chipboard. I also made matching cards. The only elements that differ from everything used above is the Scallop Edge punch, Designer Buttons - Playground (I used the More Mustard colored Flower). Enjoy!

Birthday Gift for our Niece

Here is a gift I made for our niece. I love making stuff for her. She is such a cool kid. : ) I used SU! Melon Mambo classic ink, Basic Black classic ink, Neutrals markers (Basic Black and Basic Grey), In-Color Marker (Melon Mambo), Large Star punch, A Little Somethin' stamp set, and Extreme Elements stamp set. I used my die-cutting machine for the letters. The frame was purchased at a local retail store. I used the Cricut and vinyl for her door decorations. So much fun!
