I had a wonderful time on Sunday, sharing some crafting time with some lovely ladies. We all made the same layout, this page and pockets using the Heirloom range of gorgeous patterned papers. The colours are sooooo lovely!
I can guarantee that everyone’s turned out differently. I know mine did. I decided not to make my second page into a set of 6 smaller projects to go into pockets, but added them onto a background paper the same colour as the first page.
Here they are separately:
This was a heap of fun, a lovely mixed media, messy heap of fun! We used some Gesso to adhere tissue paper which we had previously stamped, onto the white cardstock, and then some watercolouring to create the lovely textured background.
I’ll share some similar cards we made over the next few days.
The August layout sketches are up at Stick It Down, and here is the sketch for the Double page layout.
I have used a heap of retired goodies for my page this month, along with photos of my boy when he was just a day old.
As promised, here are some of the pages I have been putting together using My Digital Studio (MDS). I have certainly been learning a lot as I go!
These first two use a photo as a background.
For the third page, I have created my own background paper, then coloured in the flower and butterfly images.
If you would like more information about MDS, please feel free to contact me.
Yes I have been playing with My Digital Studio, and here is my first scrapbook project.
I have kept it fairly simple, and just been experimenting with different elements of MDS. In reality, I think these pages have only taken about 30 minutes to complete, even with playing around and figuring out how things work. This program is just fantastic and I can’t wait to learn more about it.
I still love being able to create with real cardstock and ink, however I think MDS will become a great way of journalling more of the day to day things that we do in our lives.
Heaps of other fantastic opportunities happening at the moment with Stampin’ Up!, including this one:
