On The Road Again!

Summer is the season where it seems like everyone is going somewhere … vacation, family reunions, weddings, picnics … and that usually means lots of photos! Luckily My Digital Studio (Stampin’ Up!’s Digital papercrafting & scrapbooking software) can help you get those photos off of your camera (or your phone) and into a place where they can easily be enjoyed. And the best part? You can take My Digital Studio (MDS) on the road with you, so that you can scrapbook your photos almost as they happen!


Here are some tips for using My Digital Studio on the road:

  Create your page layouts BEFORE your trip so that all you have to do is insert your photos and journaling while you’re on the road.

  Load your photos onto your computer at the end of each day to keep them organized by day.

  If you don’t have time to journal your photos in MDS every day, keep a notebook with you to makes notes of special things or keep an online journal in a word document so that your memories will be right at hand when you’re working in My Digital Studio.


 So don’t forget to bring along MDS. It’s like packing up all of your scrapbooking stuff and putting it into one small and very portable box – your laptop. And at the end of your vacation, you’ll have a fabulous scrapbook to relive those memories over and over again.


Don’t have My Digital Studio? No worries – you can download a 30-day Free Trial from my Online Store (#129600) and take it right along with you on your next adventure.

Embellished Events!

Have you noticed for the last few weeks I've been sharing cards made with stamp sets from different sections of the new catalog?  This week I'm sharing a card made with a new stamp set called Embellished Events and it can be found in the Occasions section of the catalog.  I love this set as it has images and greetings for different events!  So it's a very versatile stamp set that you can use for many occasions.  We made this card in my June stamp-a-stack.



To make the vase I punched out a piece of Tempting Turquoise card stock with the Ornament punch, ran it though the Big Shot to do the polka dot embossing and then cut the bottom off to make it flat.



I also added a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the center of each of the flowers (seems to be invisible in the picture), and used a little Baker's Twine for the bow around the vase neck. 

You'll want to head over to my Sisters in Stamping blog this week to see what my stamping sisters created with sets from the same section of the catalog!  I hope you're inspired to stamp this weekend!  Have fun!
