Photo Frame

This is my first attempt at home decor, a picture frame.  When I created this, it was my intent to place a picture inside.  After I finished, I realized it doesn't really have to have one.  Sorry its not a great picture.  Its hard to tell, but I used Dazzling Details in the middle of the flowers.

Stamp Set:  Gorgeous Grundge, Flower Shop, Petite Petals
Card Stock:  Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Smokey Slate, Very Vanilla
Punch:  Pansy, Petite Petal

MDS Monday

I am starting a new weekly post, MDS Monday.  MDS, or My Digital Studio, is a Stampin' Up! digital software program where you can scrapbook, create cards, journal pages, calendars, and the like.  

I took one of the pre-designed 12 x 12 templates and just inserted my pictures.  I added a couple of words to symbolize my journey.

I am a breast cancer survivor.  I finished my last radiation treatment on July 21, 2014.

Good news!  You can try MDS for free!  Just go to my Stampin' Up! page and shop.

Sketch Savvy - First Attempt

So today, I tried my first scrapbooking sketch.  I just recently started following the blog

The sketch was cute, so I said, Why not?  It wasn't as easy as I thought, seeing as though I don't really do too much scrapbooking.  Here is the sketch:
2 Page Sketch #19
August 11, 2014

Here is my attempt at the sketch.  I didn't know what the measurements were so I had to improvise.  I chose my Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the card stock to match.  With Stampin' Up!, the DSP Packages now have the coordinating card stock colors printed on them.  What a relief!

Stamp Set:  Draw the Line
DSP:  Park Lane
Cardstock:  Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss
Punches: 2 ½" Circle, 1 ¾" Circle, 1 ⅜" Circle, Spiral Border, 1" Square Punch, Tag Punch (Creative Memories)
