Purple Owls

Today’s Pals Paper Arts challenge is another monochromatic one — this time it is purple. I was trying to decide what I wanted to do. Purple flowers, purple butterflies, purple ???

A Present for Samantha

Yesterday was my downline Samantha’s bridal shower. Ordinarily, I might be tempted to give a package of handmade, stamped thank you notes. But since she is such a great stamper, I knew that Samantha would have more fun making her own. She also loves using My Digital Studio, so I decided to give her some … Continue reading »

I talked Steve into starting a blog for our Great Dane puppy, Jack. To help him along, I made a super cute header for him in My Digital Studio. It was so easy to make four photo squares and then fill them with pictures of Jack getting older! How cute is this puppy? The background … Continue reading »

New Digital Alphabet Downloads

Three new digital downloads from Stampin’ Up, including the beautiful Broadsheet Alphabet. I have the “real” stamp set of this one too — I earned it for free! (Just another perk of being a demonstrator!) These downloads work with My Digital Studio and any other digital scrapbooking program that allows you to import PNG and … Continue reading »
