Little Scrappy Things

We always do a 6x6 page at Club and I'm sure you've noticed how much I love doing them. They are so quick and easy since you really only need one photo. I have a bunch of them in a small album and they represent a nice variety of family pictures over the years that my girls can easily enjoy...not to mention share with their friends without me fearing for the pages inside! ;)
The heart image you see was done with the emboss resist technique. You stamp with VersaMark (a clear pigment ink), heat emboss with clear embossing powder, then brayer a dye based ink in any color over the top. The ink doesn't stick to the embossing powder, but you do need to wipe the excess off with a damp paper towel. This image was prefect for this technique.

Blissful Birthday

This card was created for my brother Bruce, and my Stampers Club enjoyed recreating it when we last met. It was really easy to do thanks to the Big Shot and all it's really fun die cuts and embossing folders! I'm Finally posting today since I'll be giving it to him in a few hours.

I chose my color combo right from the new Color Coach. I really like how it has a "Dynamic Duo," "Creative Combination," and "Sweet Set" for each color. The Color Coach will continue to be an invaluable tool for my crafting.

Digi Dabble

It's almost time to make another calendar. That was a big project last year, and since then I have only used My Digital Studio to make a few 12x12 pages. My only excuse is my undying love for ink and paper. ;) But I will continue to dabble, it's a lot of fun!

MDS can scratch that crafty itch likety split. I really like the built in templates, you can just drag and drop photos in. It's amazing how quickly you can do a page!
Templates are set up as "albums" with multiple coordinating pages. You can also choose one or two by just deleting the extra pages before you build your "project." And the template will still be there for later use if you decide to build additional pages from it. These are from the Designer Template Sunny Day 12x12 album.
I really liked the look of this page the way it was, but I only had one photo I wanted to use. Once I started tweaking things I couldn't stop! LOL Actually I didn't spend too much time on this. An easy thing to do with an existing layout is copy and paste items to move around. That saved me time from browsing through all the other various embellishments available. I also added more background paper and several drop shadows for dimension. Not the best quality photo, but I LOVE it!
