Scallop Circle Dress

Each month I hand stamp a card and send it to my Top Ten Demonstrators in sales in my team...the Definitely Diva Stampers.  This is the card I stamped for them this month.  Congratulations to the Top Ten Diva's for January!

I also made this card for my swap for Regionals...since it takes an entire 6 x 6 sheet of DSP to make, I ended up making a variety.  It was so fun to decide which pattern to use for the purse and the dress.  The dress is cut out with the Scallop Bigz Die.  The purse is made using the Tab Punch, the 1-3/4" x 7/8" Oval and the 1-3/8" x 5/8" Oval pucnh.

Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper


Love Love Love the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.  I decided to make several cards using the paper to create a baggie book for my customers, so they could see all the papers made into cards.  It was a huge hit at my last workshop and I think almost everyone purchased a package or two.  Everyone took advantage of Sale-a-brations, it is the perfect time to stock up on your scrapbooking and card making supplies.

Create a Cupcake Card

I just love when a punch matches a stamp set.  The Create a Cup Cake Stamp Set comes in both Wood or Clear . While I like to cut things out, my cutting skills aren't always the greatest and the coordinating  Build a Cup Cake Punch makes it so easy.  Just like the owl punch I can't wait to see all the creative ideas that come with the Cupcake Punch.  Here is the cute card we made at my last workshop.  Hope you get a chance to stamp with me soon!

Here are some fun cards made using the 2-step Owl Punch who knew it could be so much more than an owl.  These are the cards we made at my February Punch Class.  I did not come up with these amazing ideas.  When I see and owl I see and owl,  I admire those that can see so much more and think outside the box.  I am trying and hope to someday. Want to join me for our next punch class, just email me

Clearly for You!

This card was cased from one shared by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Lisa Young.  Love the layout, colors and it is a great way to use the fun new Adornments featured in the Occasions Mini!   The stamp set used is Clearly for You, also featured in the mini catalog.  I have loved sharing this card with my customers at workshops and excited to share it with those that haven't made it yet.

Don't you just love the Tulip Border  and the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper all found in the mini catalog.  Don't miss these items.  The Occasions Mini is only good until April 30, 2011.

Did you know new downloads come out every Tuesday for My Digital Studio?  You can find the new downloads each week under updates on the Demonstrator Website. The thing I love about downloads is instant gratification!  Purchase them at my online store and you are able to download and use them immediately! 

My Digital Studio Catalog  includes all of the MDS software artwork (contained in the boxed-version) and downloads from the October 2009 launch through January 2011! The catalog gives a snapshot of the entire product line with artwork thumbnails followed by product details. Because MDS is regularly coming out with new artwork, the catalog will be updated every month and available to you at My Digital in the just-added Resources section.  

 Print it out and use the catalog to keep track of the ones you have and the ones that are on your wish list.

Here is a sample of one of the card fronts that is a pre-made template on the My Digital Studio Software.  My Blog header and sidebar items I made using My Digital Sudio.  It has lots of great features.
