Old Olive Week & Stamping with bleach & Cards for the troops

This weekend I have been working on fall cards and I keep going back to old olive so I decided to make that my color of the week and I will have more samples this week so stay tuned. I finally decided to stamp with bleach recently and I love the way it turned out. I stamped on old olive cardstock with bleach and it turned the stamped image a color close to so saffron. So I made that my coordinating color. You may want to try other colors to see what the bleach does to it. This is very easy to do, I folded a paper towel on a plate and poured household bleach one the paper towel and touched my stamp to it as if it were an ink pad and stamped on cardstock and voila you have a neat new color. Let me know what you come up with.

Supply list:

*Old Olive Cardstock #100702 *So Saffron Cardstock # 105118 *Old Olive Classic Ink # 102277 *Scallop Oval Punch #114889 *Large Oval Punch # 107305 *Holiday Best (hostess) 115364 *Big Shot Leaves #2 die #113459

My Digital Studio - Monochromatic

I have been playing with My Digital Studio again and came up with a very simple page using only Brocade Blue and Whisper White. I did not use a template on this one, I wanted to see what I could do. I love the simplistic look to it and using a black and white photo of my downline and friend Jessica and her family. I can't wait to work on more projects this weekend. Remember October 1st you can get My Digital Studio for 1/2 price $49.95 with a $400 workshop. You can not get it with an on line order. Call or email me today to get your party on my calendar.

My Digital Studio

WOW, is all I can say, I got My Digital Studio software yesterday and have made several things already. I wanted to share with you one page from my convention scrapbook that I am working on. MDS it sooooooooooo easy to work with. I love the way it came out. On the page below I used one of the templates they have in the package and just popped in (actually click and dragged) my picture and took off a circular word stamp. How easy does it get. You are going to love it when you see it. I will share some of my projects at my Stamping Bunco party next Tuesday night. p.s. you can order the My Digital Studio October 1st. You will want to book a party with me and earn it for half price in October.

Big Shot Build a Bear- Mommy & Me Class- Sept 8th

At convention last month, I had a brainstorm about a new class I could offer when I saw these cute tins. They are great to keep a set of the Build-a-Bear pieces together for play. Today, I was reminded of that "brainstorm" when I saw a similiar one on Patty Bennett's blog and she gave me the idea about the ribbon that makes it easier to open the tin. I love this little bear. He reminds me of my boys when they were little. They would try anything to not go to bed and continue to play with their toys at night. Ahhhhhhhhhhh memories. Be sure to sign up for this class before September 6th. This is a great "Mommy and Me" class or fun for yourself and bring you back to your childhood (we have girl and boy clothes to choose from.) Check out my events page on my Stampin' UP! website. Class fee $15.00
