Welcome to Stampin’ Addicts‘ blog hop celebrating, well, Sale-A-Bration, the biggest stampin’ party of the year!
I’m happy to be showing off one of the last products in the SAB brochure, One Big Sale-A-Bration CD. Every exclusive SAB product in the brochure is included on this CD and, as you may already know, those digital images can be used in Stampin’ Up!’s own My Digital Studio as well as in any program that allows you to insert graphics. Pretty cool, especially since this CD is free, free, free!
If you’ve arrived here from the previous stop, Carmen’s Stamping Addiction, you’ve already seen wonderful ideas using this CD. And now I’ll show you a few more. (Click to enlarge the photos, please.)
I should start by saying I love using My Digital Studio for scrapbooking. I’ve printed layouts on my printer and also sent them to be professionally printed through Stampin’ Up! What I don’t use MDS for is hybrid projects, using both digital and physical elements on a card or scrapbook page. Maybe some day.
Making a framable project was my first challenge, inspired by a project we made at Leadership Conference last week. That was a hybrid project, but I kept this one all digital. This looks fabulous in our office, but unfortunately it’s where the clock hangs. And if I ask DH to drive another nail into our rock-hard plaster walls, well, you may never hear from me again!
Of course I did make a scrapbook page, this one an 8″ x 8″ layout of our DIL and youngest grandson. I used that fairly plain photo as an incentive to create a patchwork strip of some of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper. Love that paper IRL and digitally! In addition to products on the CD, I used staples and the Script DSP.
Now turn back the clock many years. This layout is of our middle grandchild, turning 18 in a few months. Sigh. When she graduates this spring, I’ll give her this layout in a black frame that’s standing by. (I wonder if she’ll mind the classic naked bath shot?) I created the custom background paper by “stamping” the image from Fresh Vintage in a random pattern. Notice the trick of filling the Curly Label Punch with a photo? So cool!
One little project to add to this post — I created the blog hop banner at the top of this post and widget badge in MDS also. The possibilities are endless! Are you intrigued? I’ve got some news for you on Monday!
And now it’s time for the last stop on the hop: Sara at Lily’s Ink Pad will show off the other digital content CD, Piece of Cake. Enjoy her low-calorie creations!
