My Digital Studio!
I love My Digital Studio! I wanted to put together a video quickly because the kids wanted to see it right away. So I just made a quick page and then duplicated it for all the pictures. Fast! Fun! Easy!

Wicked Cool Halloween Treat Card.
This card will hold any "Fun size" candy bar, a Dove Chocolate or a Ghirardelli Square.
The Concord Crush Card base is 6-1/2" x 3" and scored at 3" on each short side.
Use the Big Shot and the new embossing folder in the Holiday Mini Catalog (p. 6) to emboss the Web design on a 2-3/4" square piece of Basic Black Cardstock.
With a dauber, brush Platinum Shimmer Paint across the embossed image (Page 195 in the 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalog).
Punch a hole through front and back for the ribbon closure.
I used a glue dot to adhere the candy inside.
Decorate with the "Wicked Cool" stamp set and the Oval and Scalloped Oval Punches.

Stamp Collage with My Digital Studio
"Collage Stamping" is a technique where you layer images and embellishments to create a collage. It is one of my favorite techniques because I get to stamp alot! It was fun doing this technique digitally. I love the effect!

Recently, the gals at our demonstrator meeting were teasing me because I talk about my bathtub. I had to take a picture to show them my little place of serenity! It is fun to scrapbook pictures of little things that make us happy. Once I did a photo box of just my backyard with flowers, the bird feeder, tomatoes. All these little things are enjoyable in life and it is nice to have pictures to reflect on them. I would love to see the little things that make YOU happy. Your scrapbook room? Your holiday table? A Quilt?

The North Woods Workshop!

What a beautiful drive.
The colors were many and the weather was perfect!
For the ATV enthusiast, Iron County has the largest ATV trail system in Wisconsin, with more than 200 miles of scenic trails.

Patti provided good food, a nice place for us to work, and great friends to visit with!
These are a couple of the projects we did at Patti's workshop in Hurley, WI.


(Not all the projects are posted yet because I have another workshop coming up soon and I don't want to spoil the surprise for Jack and Gretchen! )

The "Gate Fold" card.
We used a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Cardstock and scored it at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8" to make this fold. This finished card fits into a standard invitation size envelope
(5-1/2" x 4-1/4").
I demonstrated several tools with this design. We used the Circle Cutter, the Big Shot and Embossing Folder, Punches, The Cutter Kit and we did some sanding.

"Tags Til Christmas"

This is the new set on page 24 of the Holiday Mini Catalog. It coordinates with several punches, and punches are always fun to use. Everyone had the chance to see how creative they really are with this project!
Here are the measurements for the box:

(Click on the image to enlarge it)

The first piece that is scored 1/2" on all sides is the bottom box. Then the next 3 pieces are the divider pieces inside the box.The divider pieces are folded with the "Mountain/Valley Fold" (up and down). The 5th piece is the top. Once attached at the short ends, the bottom slides into it.

A Hostess Gift!

I made this for Patti with the Big Shot and the Milk Carton Die.
The tag is a fun technique using Stampin' Dimensionals to "pop up" a part of the image. I used Pear Pizzaz and Poppy Parade Cardstock and the Studio Sketches stamp set on page 29 of the Stampin' Up! 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalog. The Big Shot and the Die are on page 204 and 209.

Thank you, Patti, for a great workshop! And special thanks to Judi and Tammy for helping me get there! We will do it again!
