My Digital Studio (again!)

My nephew graduated from high school last week and sent me a couple of pictures. 

I used a layout from Heather Summers' Simply My Digital Studio online club to make this page.

My Digital Studio and More Wedding Photos

Here is another one of the layouts Heather Summers shared with us in her Simply My Digital Studio Online Club.  I thought these pictures from my niece's wedding in 2008 fit the layout perfectly.

I am still "playing" with My Digital Studio

Heather Summers' Simply My Digital Studio Club will soon be over, but I am hoping she will continue the club or do more online classes.

This page goes back to a challenge Heather gave in January and I just caught up with it recently. The challenge was to make a monochromatic page.

I was looking through photos and decided to use some from the wedding of my friend's daughter Christina.

For the background "paper" I decided to use the colour matching feature in My Digital Studio so that I could duplicate the colour of the bridesmaid dresses. I "stamped" the words and the swirls in white and then reduced the opacity.

Hope you like it

When I saw the stamp set The Open Sea in the Stampin' Up! summer mini catalogue I knew I had to have it.

I saw THIS card using this set on Dawn Olchefske's blog and knew I wanted to duplicate it.

Last week when I went to Judy's we made this card together.

Bridal Shower

Hello! - it has been a while.

The card I sharing today is the shower card I made for my niece who is getting married next month - the bridal shower was last weekend. Her wedding colours are ones she selected from a peacock feather so I wanted to make her a card that featured a peacock. I had ordered the Proud Peacock set from the summer mini catalogue in anticipation of using the images on a shower card and maybe the wedding card.

I CASE'd this card from one I saw on the Stampin' Up! demonstrator site (Stampin' Connection) so I can't direct you to the original.

Stamp Set - Proud Peacock; Tiny Tags
Card Stock - Whisper White; Taken with Teal (retired); Melon Mambo; Shimmery White; Brights DSP Paper Pack
Ink (and markers)- Melon Mambo; Pacific Point; Old Olive; Lucky Limeade (new InColour); Chocolate Chip
Other - Melon Mambo Ribbon (retired); Basic Pearls; Vintage Trinkets; dimensionals
Tools - Big Shot; Square Lattice Embossing Folder; Jewelry Punch; Colour Spritzer

At the Beach

When I started this page I was following one of Heather Summers' layouts but then got distracted when I remembered I had the surfboard images and decided I wanted to incorporate them into the page. So I think the only thing that resembles Heather's is that there are the same number of photos in the same positions on the page. It will look a bit familiar - after I created this page I adapted it for my blog header.

I Hope You Are Not Tired of My Digital Studio

I have started stamping a little more but haven't taken photos so I have more My Digital Studio to share with you over the next few weeks. These are more pages inspired with the layouts Heather Summers shares in her Simply MDS Club.

The photo of my husband's family was taken in 1966 or 1967.

Week 16 Layout - Heather Summers' Online My Digital Studio Club

Heather's template for week 16 was perfect for pictures of my niece and nephew taken when they went on a Caribbean cruise with their mum.  The colours she used were perfect.
