I have had My Digital Studio for almost 2 years. I love it...when I use it. But like many other "new" things I don't use it enough to get really good at it. So I've decided to do my 2009 Family scrapbook using MDS. The benefit is that I can sit down and do a spread and walk away...without a mess! My goal is 10 spreads for the month of August.
This is a simple 2 page spread using stamps, text, punches. Not a lot of page layers or accessories...all get to that on another spread :)
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.
