Thank You {MDS}

I finally got around to designing my sister-in-law's thank you cards.  They match the invitations I sent for her baby shower which you can see here.  I went with the theme "A Little Pumpkin is on His Way".

I used My Digital Studio to make it and kept the design pretty simple.  I will take a picture of the actual cards once I get them in.  I think it always looks better after it's been printed than it does in just an image format on a screen.

If you haven't used My Digital Studio yet, I would highly suggest the free 30 day trial.  You can get more information on the program here!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to have more projects to share with you soon!  It's the holiday season, so I need to get in my craft room and start creating!

Have a great day!

Welcome Little Pumpkin

 Today I threw a baby shower for my sister-in-law.  I finally had an excuse to do some crafting!  It was really fun to put together and I think everyone had a great time.  Most everything I did was inspired from Pinterest (of course!).  I just wanted to share some things I did.  I utilized My Digital Studio to max potential!
 This was the table that I had the cupcake cake, in the shape of a pumpkin and then a onsie for guests to sign, games (Baby Gift Bingo & Wishes for the Little Pumpkin) and favors.
 I reused this cute carriage that actually held flowers at my own baby shower.  I gave the guests pocket sized hand sanitizers from Bath & Body Works with a little tag that said, "Thank you for showering **** and baby ****.  Here is a little gift so you can hold the Little Pumpkin when he arrives!"

 I made the Wishes for the Little Pumpkin pages in My Digital Studio which I thought turned out so cute!
 I also used My Digital Studio to make these cute Baby Gift Bingo cards!  Guests filled out the squares with gifts they thought the mom-to-be would open and they marked them off as she opened.  First one to bingo got a prize!
 I also did this onsie with My Digital Studio and used Iron On Transfer paper.  As the guests arrived, they signed it as a cute souvenir for the Mommy-to-be.
 Ok, this cake was actually a HUGE fluke.  I went into the grocery store to order a cake.  I looked down in the bakery case and there sat a PUMPKIN CUPCAKE CAKE!  WHAT?!?!  I had to get it.  I made my own banner using... My Digital Studio!  I think it came out really cute and was definitely the perfect cake for the occasion!

I didn't get a picture of the food table, but I thought I would share the menu and recipes.  Everything turned out great and was super easy!

  • Ham Biscuits (I just used Hawaiian Rolls, Dijon Mustard, Swiss Cheese and baked them in foil at 350 degrees for 30 mins)
  • Nacho Dip, recipe HERE (I actually put mine in the oven for about 20 mins at 350 degrees to melt the cheese.. mmmm)
  • Crockpot Mac & Cheese, recipe HERE  (can't go wrong with Paula Deen)
  • Veggie Tray
  • Pumpkin Bread Muffins, recipe HERE (I made mine in muffin cups instead of bites)
  • Pumpkin Fluff Dip & Graham Cracker Sticks, recipe HERE
Bottom line... My Digital Studio is awesome and you should order it!  It is so easy to use and creating custom products is too fun!  Make sure you also check out the invitation I made using it, found HERE!

A Little Pumpkin... {I'm Back}

Wow!  It has been a loooong time since I've updated my blog.  I think I have a pretty good excuse, though!  My baby girl was born on July 9th!  I have been busy adjusting to motherhood and going back to work, so my crafting time has been limited.  I hope to get back to crafting more now that things are starting to settle down and my family is in somewhat of a routine!

I am hosting my sister-in-law's baby shower and I wanted to share with you the invitation I made using My Digital Studio!  I just love using MDS to create fun, personalized things.  I had looked at invitations on Etsy and thought, I could make something just as good!  I kind of CASed an idea I saw on there using the pumpkin theme, seeing as her shower is in November.  I'm planning on using this theme for the decorations as well and hope to use MDS to make those too!

I used the postcard option in MDS.  This is a 5x7 sized card.

Products Used:
Afternoon Tea Digital Kit (#129928) - for the background paper
Holiday Blitz Brush Stamp Set - for the pumpkins, I think this is included in your MDS download
Curly Label Punch - Part of the Punch Shapes Digital Download and is also included in your MDS download (#118853) 

You can order Stampin' Up from me 24/7!

Thanks from Baby & Me

Hello!  How do you like the new look of my blog?  I figured it was time for a change!  Hope you like it! 

Today's card is for a sketch I found over on the In{k}spire Me blog.  I've never played in any of their challenges, but I thought this was a fun sketch.  I feel that my designer paper hasn't been getting much love lately, so I decided to feature some as the main image for this card.  The designer paper I showcased is the Sprinkled with Love designer paper that was in the Spring Catalog.  Unfortunately, it is no longer available and the saddest part is this is the FIRST time I am cutting into it.  Ugh, you can tell I have been busy.

The sentiment, however, is still available and is found in the Cuddles & Kisses stamp set (#127314 clear / #131913 wood).

Supplies List:
Paper: Bashful Blue Cardstock (retired), Melon Mambo Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Marina Mist Cardstock, Sprinkled with Love Designer Paper (retired)

Ink: Melon Mambo

Stamps: Cuddles & Kisses (#127314 clear / #131913 wood)

Accessories: Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals, Bitty Banners Framelits, Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon (retired), Basic Rhinestones, Scallop Oval Die (non-SU)

Cuddles & Kisses $18.95 clear / $25.95 wood
