MDS to the rescue!

Time seems to go by to fast for me! I have plans to do this and that, but never enough time to do it all. Today is our Easter party at school (I work in the after care program). I wanted to give my kids (kindergartners) a treat bag to take home. Got the stuff for the bags, stuffed them, and at this point it was late in the evening. I wanted a tag for the bag but was too tired to go get all my supplies out to stamp them.
So MDS (My Digital Studio) to the rescue! I just pulled up a blank page, filled the background with the polka dot designer paper, added the bunny image, some text, and was done! Printed them onto cardstock on my printer, cut out, added to bags and was done!
That is one of the great things I love about MDS! You don't have to use it for just scrapbooking or cardmaking!
Happy Stamping & Knitting!

Pop Up Birthday!

As a demo, I have quite a bit of retired products. So I use them up on my personal projects. This is a paper that I love.....but alas it is retired. But it sure looks great on this pop up can! Inside is money for a birthday gift! And once opened, it can be a pencil can.
The flower is made with Real Red, and Bashful Blue cardstock that was run through the Big Shot with the Flowers Daisy #2 die cut. The center brad is an epoxy brad from the Occasions mini called Sending Love Epoxy Brads.
The wider green ribbon is also retired, but the others are the 1/4" grosgrain and gingham ribbons!
Stay tuned for matching card!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This is what I made for some co-workers, and for my stamp club members. Shamrock sugar cookies wrapped up in a paper/glassine bag!
Andrea Walford had a tutorial for running one of our new glassine bags through the Big Shot with a texturz plate, so I had to give it a try!
It is hard to see in the pics, but I used one from the Stampin Up backgrounds 1 set. The image is called "Going Green" from the Occasions Mini catalog.......
A fun way to wrap up some treats!
