Micro Easel Card

I found this idea on Pinterest, but even with Google translate, and a link to another blog from the pinned image, there really weren't any directions I could find. I was determined to try it though, I mean really...it's so cute!! Since I had to figure it out on my own using my wits and a ruler, I'm sharing it with you here! =)

I made a trip to the dollar store where I was able to find matchboxes and birthday candles. The matchboxes were shrink wrapped together in groups of 10 for a buck! I assume they can be found in varying sizes, so if you follow my directions to make one, make sure you measure your box and adjust accordingly.

So the first thing I did was to pull out the little drawer and dump the matches out. I dabbed my little drawer front directly into Crushed Curry ink, turned it around and dabbed the other side in Cucumber Crush.

Then I measured the box shell and came up with approx 2-1/8" x 1-3/8". This is my measurement for the DSP I adhered to the top before layering on the Easel Card. For the Micro Easel Card, I cut 4-2/8" x 1-3/8" from a piece of Bermuda Bay Card Stock. Score it at 2-1/8" (half) to create a mini card, and then score one side in half again, and score another line halfway into the half...clear? Maybe this visual will help.

This is your card base, and the you will want to create a mat with Whisper White for the front of the card. Mine measures 1-1/4" x 1-7/8" and I also cut another piece of WW for inside the little drawer, 2" x 1-1/4" although it needed a tiny trim to fit. There is also a small WW piece inside the card. This is where you'll stamp "Happy Birthday."

Make sure you adhere just the very end...the smallest scored section on the end. This will allow the card to be propped against the candle holder and displayed open. The candle holder was added by cutting off it's "stabby part" and inserting it through a hole I punched on the box top. Just use glue dots on each side of the holder to make it grab on and stay put in the hole. Put a pearl on the drawer, tuck a candle and a match inside the drawer, tie the whole thing up with a bow, and Voila!

Digital Departure

It was announced with the release of the retired list that My Digital Studio was being discontinued. TODAY is the LAST day to purchase downloads and print orders. June 9th is the last day SU! will support MDS, after that day the MDS website, and respective social media related pages will be removed with the exception of YouTube. They are considering leaving this intact for now.
MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE/DOWNLOAD/BACKUP your downloads and software before 6/9/2015. For assistance regarding this process, see here>>http://www.mydigitalstudio.net/backup

For those of you that have the software and would like to keep using it, this post has some beneficial information shared from Stampin' Up!

We have worked with excellent partners to make the My Digital Studio product line. We're pleased to announce that StoryRock, the partner who worked with us to develop the MDS software, has made an offer to Stampin' Up!'s customers and demonstrators. Some MDS users may know that the original MDS software was based on StoryRock's award-winning MyMemories Suite software. While the two softwares have diverged over the years, there are still many similarities--which we feel confident will enable MDS users to experience an easy transition to MyMemories Suite.
MyMemories version 6 software is normally available for $39.99 USD, but StoryRock has cut the price to $19.99 USD for anyone who purchases the software via this special offer. See more details about the offer here.

Starting on June 3, StoryRock will make a number of additional print products available through the latest version of the MyMemories software. Stampin' Up! has worked with StoryRock to introduce some of our most popular print products, like additional card, photobook, and calendar options and sizes. We will post a detailed list of those products and StoryRock's prices on MyDigitalStudio.net on June 3.

While Stampin' Up! will not sell any digital downloads after June 2, we have reached an agreement with StoryRock to offer a limited number of our existing digital downloads for sale via a Stampin' Up! section of the MyMemories.com online store. You can expect to see a limited selection of digital downloads appearing on the MyMemories.com online store over the next few months. The price for downloads through the MyMemories.com online store may vary, but it will definitely be in your best interest to purchase the downloads available through Stampin' Up! at a 30 percent discount until they are no longer available after June 2.
This content will not be new to you, but it will give you the opportunity to catch additional digital downloads you may have wanted and missed while our digital downloads were available for sale. 

Do I need to switch to MyMemories Suite?
Stampin' Up! will no longer support the MDS software after June 9, 2015. MDS will continue to work on existing computers for the foreseeable future. However, you will no longer be able to print directly from MDS after June 2, and it is very probable that the software will not work with the upcoming Windows PC and Mac operating systems. It is also possible that other critical component updates like Java may cause the software to stop working as intended.
In short, if you would like to continue with digital design on a supported platform, we recommend that you switch to the latest version of MyMemories Suite. MyMemories Suite consistently rates very high, we know and recommend the developers, and as we have mentioned, it is very similar to MDS. Stampin' Up! will not provide support for switching your MDS projects and files over to MyMemories Suite, but StoryRock will be more than happy to help.
