Holiday Gift Class: Glittery Christmas Balls

Last year I made beautiful glittery glass Christmas balls to give to friend and family, I was amazed that something so quickly and easily made could look so fabulous! The ornaments were really well received and I decided that I should share the joy of making and gifting them with my stampers. So I will be offering a special class on Thursday Dec. 10th @ 7pm where I will show you how to create a set of 6 of these beauties!

The cost will be $20 ($15 for VIPs) and will include the supplies to create 6 glitter ornaments and a full sheet of holiday rubons. These ornaments are beautiful enough to give individually to teachers, neighbours and friends or as a set for a special someone on your list

To register for the class please contact me ASAP as spaces will be very limited. All those who register with me by this Sunday, Nov. 29th will be able to create a bonus ornament gift box! Contact me soon to reserve your spot.

Wow Time Flies!

I knew it had been a little while since I last posted but, a month??? What on earth happened? I know you can't possibly know but the odd things is that I really don't either. They say that as you get older time passes faster and faster I really hope it slows down a little though because at this pace I'll blink and my kids will be grown!

I think I can guess one culprit to this last month going by so fast, if you take a quick look around at my blog you might also guess...My Digital Studio. Love it! Love it! Love it!! I can get awesome scrapbook pages done without turning my house upside down and it makes great posters/banners/backgrounds....really with a little tinkering the sky is the limit.

As for the new blog look what do you think? Both the background and the header were done with MDS. My mom is a huge fan of the artist Mary Engelbreit and loaned me a gorgeous book about her, I couldn't resist trying to reproduce her aesthetic on the blog. It's so cheerful and vibrant!

While I am going on about what you can do in MDS I might as well share a few of my recent scrapbook pages with you. Make sure to click on the images to see them larger, there are a lot of little details!

These first 2 pages were made to be name frames for my kid's rooms, I can't wait to get them printed! It was so much fun to use the included Simply Scrappin' Kits to make pages that reflected so well their personalities!

For this page I used a photo layout that is included in the program, it was super quick to do.
These last 2 pages are for the baby book I am working on for my son. Thanks to MDS it finally seems like an achievable project! {hint= black and white always looks classy and is a great way to deal with tacky or unpleasantly coloured scenes, like here at a hospital}

And finally, this is the front of the card I created and had printed to get My Digital Studio Certified. This card was almost effortless as, I took a premade one from the Hoppy memories kit and tweaked it to fit Kaleb's photo and a greeting. I am really happy I had a few of these printed, because it seemed kind of costly to have them professionally printed, but -WOW- they look great and are full colour inside and out! Hopefully tomorrow I can show you a photo of the printed cards as well as a peak at what I did inside!
