The paper and embellishments are great and are really easy to put together to make a fun and creative page.  I am still new to the digital scrapbooking world, so I appreciate these kits that are already coordinated for me!

The butterflies are actually from a separate download called  Live Your Dreams which doesn't appear to be available any longer.

My Birthday {MDS2}

For those of you that don't know, I have a baby girl on the way and one of the things I am vowing to do is pick up digital scrapbooking!  My goal is to put together a whole book and have it printed at the end of each year.  I figure this will be a great keepsake for our family, plus I get to use cute Stampin' Up supplies!  Not to mention, digital takes up waaay less work space and doesn't make such a mess!

First of all, if you haven't gotten My Digital Studio 2 yet, you must.  You have several options:

  • My Digital Studio 2 Disc (#130645) or Download (#130644) for $39.95
  • My Digital Studio 2+ which is the full software plus tons of content for $79.95! 
    Disc (#130647) or Download (#130646)
You can order your disc or download in my online store HERE!

For this layout, I used one of the more recent download releases called the Hello There Kit (#133374).  It is only $9.95 and includes a 17-piece stamp set, 13 designer papers, and 26 embellishments.  Where else can you get all that for under 10 bucks?

This card did not take me long at all to make and I love how it turned out!  The sentiment is from the set, Teeny Tiny Wishes and it's a must have set for any stamper!  The sentiments are the perfect size for most cards and the set comes with TONS of different occasions.  If there's one sentiment set you need, it's Teeny Tiny Wishes!

Best of Flowers

Stampin' On a Budget
Using holiday themed designer paper for non-holiday themed projects

Have you checked out the March Release of the Best Of 25 Anniversary Sets?  This month features the Best of Flowers!  It includes two of my most favorite floral images from Stampin' Up and I'm excited to feature a card using one of them.

This image was originally from the set, Upsy Daisy that has been retired.  I held on to it because it's one of my most favorite sets and makes a quick and easy card.

I would also like to point out the designer paper I used for this.  It's from the Christmas themed designer series paper, Be of Good Cheer!  If you are like me, you don't have $100's of dollars to spend on the newest stamping products, so I have to find alternate ways to use supplies.  One of those ways is looking at designer paper that may be themed to one season or holiday and figuring out how to use it for other projects.  This particular designer series paper features this great Gumball Green polka dotted pattern that can be used for numerous projects.  I pulled out my handy Color Coach to come up with this color scheme of Gumball Green, So Saffron, and Melon Mambo.  I love the springy feel to it!

The banners behind the image were made with the Bitty Banners Framelits.  I just cut 6 of them and adhered them to look like one long piece.  Then, I pulled out some So Saffron Brads and put them in front a 1/2'' circle of  Melon Mambo cardstock.

The sketch for this card comes from the Sunday Stamps Challenge.  This sketch was perfect for this image!

Card Supplies:
Paper: So Saffron Cardstock (#105118), Melon Mambo Cardstock (#115320), Very Vanilla Cardstock (#101650), Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper (#126896)

Stamps: Best of Flowers (#133342)

Ink: Melon Mambo (#126948)

Accessories: Subtles Collection Brads (#119738), 1/2'' Circle Punch (#119869), Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (#117335), Bitty Banners Framelits (#129267)
