More MDS Creations

This time round I grabbed some plain white cotton singlets and made these designs for my Beautiful Niece.  The weather is still quite warm so Im sure she will get plenty of use out of them.  I seem to be feeling more in control of the MDS program now and I have been using some of the Embellishments and layering stamps on top of other stamps.  It is so very easy, I can't believe it.

Now Im hooked and to top it all off my daughter now wants Singlet Tops for Hip Hop so watch this space for more Creations using MDS (My Digital Studio).
I think I might even make her Birthday Invites next!!!

MY DIGITAL STUDIO - T Shirt Transfers

After many months of thinking and seeing all the wonderful creations other Demonstrators have been making I decided to Purchase the MDS (My Digital Studio) Package.  And guess what!!!!
I have been having so much fun creating these wonderful creations.
My lovely sister in law is expecting baby number two and we have no idea what she is having so it was a slight challenge making onesie's that are unisex.

Using the stamps and colour pallets that are in the MDS package I made this
lovely clothes line of baby clothes.

Wednesdays Cards & More Class - Flower Power

Evening All, it has been a very busy but very productive day today.  We had a great Cards & More class in Te Awamutu.  For those of you that came I hope you had a fantastic couple of hours.  For those that could not make it take a look at what we made today...

The New Spiral Flower Die is such a winner for me at the moment.  I just love creating the flowers that you can see above.  These ones I have wet and scrunched to get the vintage effect.  I have paired these flowers up with co-ordinating seam binding and the New Chevron Ribbon. The Tag a Bag box's are the final touch for these lovely in expensive gifts.

We also had plenty of time to create one of these stunning double embossed sympathy cards. I have lightly embellished this card with the Petite Petals and Flower Power Stamp Sets.  The colours are just beautiful together.

Little Girls - Framed Dress Art

Today I had the opportunity to sit down with my 7yr old daughter and her best friend.  We had so much fun creating these lovely boxed frames.  The girls new exactly what they wanted to do and had heaps of fun searching through my endless supplies of Stampin Up products to come up with the above.  All I had to do was use the glue gun... Easy Peasy

I had forgotten how much fun it is to teach kids.  I think its time for me to venture out into kids class's and birthday parties.  Time to put the thinking cap on.

Scrapbook Page in a Frame

On Tuesday this week I went for my monthly scrapbooking fix with the ever so talented Irene Wardlaw from Kowhai Haven.  Irene is also one of my downline's and I love going to her place each month for a catch up as well as the opportunity to sit and learn from someone else.  This month we created this lovely scrapbook page in a frame.  I just love it...

We used the very NEW Spiral Flower Originals Die from the Occasions Catalogue along with the Hardwood stamp which I just can not stop using.
This project did take a couple of hours to create and put together but I am so happy with the result.

If you are after any tips or pointers on creating this lovely framed art please email my and I would be happy to past them on.
