My new Cards...

Good evening all.  Hope you were able to enjoy some of this wonderful weather today.  Looks like we're in some luck for the long weekend.  Today's post is my new promo card, it's not quite a business card or a flyer, so I call it a promo card!  I used MDS (yes I do still use real paper !!)  The paper is from the Sweet Pea download, and I also used embellishments from the Sweet Pea set.  If anyone is missing Taken with Teal or the Sweet Pea paper, this is a great way to have it back!  That;s the beauty of the MDS, nothing retires!  As some of you know, I am planning on opening my home up in September to some crop times.  Once I have Hannah's school schedule all in place I will post the crop dates.  I am planning on offering an adult crop as well as a Mommy and Me crop.  Stay tuned for details!  Also, I will be doing another post over the weekend with a special offer for all of you out there, so check back in Monday evening for a treat!  Have a good one and thanks for stopping by!

A present for you!

Good afternoon All!  Hope you are all having a great weekend.  We're still doing the finishing touches on the studio but we can see the light!  At least I have somewhat of a working space back. 
Have any of you purchased a set of blender pens? If so this is a little treat for you.  I purchased my first set almost 2 years ago and I use them quite often.  They're starting to get a little dry and I came across this homemade recipe to rejuvenate them...and it worked!  So I am sharing it with all of you in the form of an MDS greeting card, totally created by myself (I didn't use one of their templates).  I hope you find it useful, I will be enclosing a copy  with any future sales of blender pens, if you already have a set send me an e-mail and I will send you a hard copy of this recipe card.  To recreate with paper, colours are Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Cherry Cobbler (new and I LOVE), Daffodil Delight (new too!) and Early Espresso (really really love this one!)  I added some brads as bullets for the ingredients and also for the vanilla Hodge podge hardware.  Thanks for stopping by!

It's Here!

Well this is a little late (hard to believe isn't it?!) but the new catalogue is out...and I LOVE it!  This is a card I made using the Hostess Level 1 set, Because I Care.  As soon as I saw it in the book I wanted it, and normally I'm not a huge fan of the level 1 sets!  But this one I love and am looking forward to making many cards with.  The greeting is from the stamp set Heard from the Heart.  Colours are: the new Early Espresso (LOVE - thought it was too similar to Chocolate Chip at first - but it's not!) Regal Rose, Old Olive and Rose Red.  Papers are Very Vanilla, Regal Rose, and Early Espresso.  I first stamped the flower with Early Espresso.  Then I used my Stampin'Write Regal Rose marker to colour in the flower.  I used my blender pen to colour in the leaves as it gives it a softer touch and looks a little more real.  I edged the Very Vanilla with Early Espresso as well, and mounted it on Early Espresso cardstock.  The greeting is done with Early Espresso and Rose Red markers.  Edges of the card are also distressed with Early Espresso.  I used the Big Shot and the Elegant Bouquet Impressions folder and then sanded the flowers to make them stand out a little more.  I also distressed the edges of the Regal Rose cardstock with Early Espresso (what can I say, I got a little crazy!)  To finish off, you can just see a little of the inside of the card, I stamped another flower with Early Espresso to dress up the inside.  If you would like to earn this stamp for free, e-mail me at to find out how!
Stay cool and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Kayla!

Happy Birthday to my little one who turns 2 how time flies!  And since time flies so fast, this is also another page brought to you by My Digital Studio!  If there's anyone out there who's looking for a faster way of creatively keeping those memories, this is for you!  I do still love to get together with everyone to scrapbook, but I am loving how easy it is to make these pages.  And to top it all off, this was another FREE template that came with the MDS software, how cool is that?
For anyone wanting to re-create this, it uses the Sunny Day kit (now retired) but the colors are Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Pink Passion (which I would substitute with Melon Mambo as the Pink Passion is now retired as well)
Hope everyone had a wonderful Canada Day and have a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!
