Stampin' UP! had a great online resource for My Digital Studio...http://mydigitalstudio.net/
Last night I was looking through all of the great samples and thought "I can't do this! My pages look so simple and boring compared to some of these." But then I realized that is what many of my customers say about designing their own cards...and in fact it's what I said 9 years ago when I first started stamping. When I think about my first cards...wow, they are laughable. But through practice and imitation...I learned. And so that is what I've decided to do with MDS. I found one part of a page that I wanted to learn how to do, and encorporated it into my spread. Last night it was inserting a picture into a punch.
I started stamping in 2002. I went to my first workshop quite skeptical thinking I did not need another hobbby. Needless to say I fell in love and was instantly addicted to Stampin' Up! One of the things that I have loved about this hobby is that I'm spreading joy with a card or a gift. It took me several more years of stamping to become a demonstrator. Finally in 2006 I turned the hobby into a business and became a demonstrator and the joy of stamping grew. Not only was I making cards and gifts for friends and family but I began teaching others to do the same. It may sound a little silly but Stampin' UP! is my way of spreading a little more joy in this world. Sending a friend a card is like sending them a smile.
