Glad you could join us for some holiday crafting with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals! You’ve probably hopped over from Susan Lankford at Stamp and Scrap With Susan, I’m stop number 24 on the Pals Hop and I’m glad you hopped in! I’ll help you “hop along” from blog to blog where you’ll find great ideas for Stampin’ Up! projects featuring the new Holiday Catalog! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you’ll be back on track!
I can’t believe it’s been a month since I posted last! I promise, I’ve been SUPER busy with all sorts of great things – moving, setting up new craft spaces, revamping my blog, planning a digital challenge for you, and updating some of my business pages…. I really, really, really hope to be back online 100% by the end of the month!In the meantime, I’ve started working on my Stampin’ Up! Convention scrapbook.
Now, you may wonder what that has to do with the Holiday Catalog… but, did you know that Stampin’ Up! debuted My Digital Studio 2 (MDS2) in conjunction with the Holiday Catalog? It’s an amazing upgrade at an amazing price. If you already have MDS, the upgrade is only $19.99. If you’ve never used it before, the whole version is $79.95 (includes over $500 worth of content), or $39.95 (with only some of the extra content). - which is waaayyy cheap for such great software! I designed this month’s hop badges with MDS2 – you’ll see that the flowers are all different colors – I couldn’t have done it without MDS2 – and for those hoppers that are using the next and back buttons, you’ll see that there’s other custom coloring on the apple and corn stamp images – so cool! Of course, don’t forget you can try MDS2 for FREE for 30 days!
So, here’s the scrapbook so far. I still have some journaling to do, but would you believe I finished this 24-page spread in ONE NIGHT! Stampin’ Up! has so many great pre-designed scrapbooks! All I had to do was plug in the photos – and like I said, next, I’ll add some journaling. Talk about an easy way to catch up on all those years of scrapbooking!
