I’m a big family history buff! I love it and have been researching my family for more than 15 years now and teaching and lecturing on family history for more than a dozen years. So I was super excited when Stampin’ Up! introduced the 12×12 family history digital photobook template for MDS in January.
The template for this photo book has a picture square behind the ‘family history’ banner. I changed it to a block and added the family name. I really enjoy being able to start with a template and adjust it to my needs.
The picture of the couple above is of my grandparents, HD and Josie DeLoach. The best I can tell this picture was taken around the time they got married which was 1941. This is just the beginnings of my album and as you can tell I haven’t filled in all the data yet on the page below, but it gives you an idea of how easy it is to do.
For the other history buffs out there, I have to tell you of my latest discovery! (For the rest of you, skip down below for the latest digital downloads!)
Last month the Louisville Genealogical Society meeting included a presentation from a couple who had a journal of an ancestor’s civil war experience. It was a very small, fragile book with some wonderful excerpts about the history of the time.
Years ago I learned that the Brooks County Genealogical Society in Quitman, Georgia, had published “The Civil War Letters of Bryant Folsom.” Bryant Folsom was my 3rd great grandfather, an ancestor of my grandmother above, who died in the war. I was anxious to get a copy of the publication. Unfortunately, it was printed in 1997 and by the time I found out about it there were no copies available.
Occasionally I would search the web for a copy, but I never had any luck. After going to the civil war lecture last month, I decided to try my search again and I found one for sale on Amazon! I immediately purchased it and it was delivered just days later in perfect condition! Success! I am so happy to have this book for my family.
It’s Tuesday, so that means new digital downloads! The new digital downloads this week include some extra special projects for mom in preparation for Mother’s Day and a graduation digital stamp brush set.
This funky mother’s day gift coupon book includes fun coupons like “we’ll listen to music of your choice”, which is among my favorites! Also, I think mom will really love this if you exchange some of the coupons for pictures making it a brag book for her purse too.
STILL NEED THE MY DIGITAL STUDIO SOFTWARE?CLICK HERE. It’s only $19.95 and includes $500 in digital content too! This is a tremendous value. Also, I highly recommend ordering the disc version.

You can try the software (without the digital content) for 30 days FREE, but at just $19.95, go for it and get started on your digital albums today!

Today I have another My Digital Studio (MDS) video tutorial for you. I’ll walk you through step-by-step how I created this printable. You can make a printable from any quote that you like.

MORE DETAILS FROM STAMPIN’ UP!:
We’ve searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we’ve found it. We’re excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let’s just say they’re meant for each other!
What makes them so great?
They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.
They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity?
We could go on, but we’ll let you try them for yourself.
This stamp set is offered on a trial basis and there will be other photopolymer stamp sets available in the future. All photopolymer sets will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don’t forget you can store them in our clear cases.
Use this exclusive photopolymer alphabet set (with extras!) for titles or embellishments on scrapbook pages, cards, or any type of project.
We recommend clear block sizes A, B, G, F, and I (not included in the set).
Our photopolymer stamps offer a versatile all-clear stamping option.
Our top-quality photopolymer stamps give a perfectly stamped image every time.
Best of all, you get to enjoy tons of images for a great price! (In fact, I’m getting two so I can spell out “miss you”, “get well”, “happy birthday” on one block! Perfect!)

Did you know I’m a genealogist? I am. In fact, I just did a workshop for the Louisville Genealogical Society today. I’ve been actively researching my family for more than 15 years and I started doing workshops and seminars for groups more than a dozen years ago. I love it! So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw the latest digital downloads…I was SUPER excited to see the new Family History Photobook Digital Designer Template! You can view the separate pages here.
This is a family history photobook template with pedigree charts and family group sheets in an attractive 12″ x 12″ photobook, scrapbook format. This would make an awesome family gift! Once you’ve made one, just order the number of copies you need with no additional work.
Rich Jutkins, Stampin’ Up! President and Chief Operating Officer, wrote “This summer we determined that we would redo the entire backyard, including putting in a pool. Three-and-a-half months later we are finished. Thank goodness it doesn’t take that long to learn how to use our My Digital Studio product! This morning I came in and created a page using only the free trial software that was extended to all of you, and was able to quickly share my summer nightmare. Pool party at my house on Christmas day – everyone is invited!” (his page is above.)
Using My Digital Studio you can quickly preserve your wonderful memories from this summer. Create a photobook for your family and with a quick click of a button order a couple more for grandparents – they will LOVE it!
The summer just ended and if you’re like most people you have wonderful photo memories sitting in storage on your camera or computer. And I know it’s bothering you because you can’t share those memories in a meaningful way when they are in digital prison! And the holidays are upon us, which means more photos, and more memories to be recorded.
I have a solution for you! Using My Digital Studio software makes creating wonderful photobook keepsakes easy in 4 quick steps!! I promise, by the end of the evening your printed summer scrapbook could be ordered and on its way!
See my video tutorials here & here and more samples here & here. And I’m just a phone call away to help you with every step! (cell # 832 dash 515 dash 4632. Sorry for the encripted number but it keeps me from getting too many robo calls. :) )
Act now, because just thinking about it won’t get those memories recorded and if you wait too long you’ll forget all the special moments you shared with family and friends this summer. And by acting now you’ll be ready to record your Holiday memories too!
Last week I introduced you to my friend Krystal. She loves scrapbooking with My Digital Studio and here’s a cute page she made to announce the upcoming birth and name of her daughter. (Her adorable baby girl was born just 2 months ago.)
I love the festive feel of this page with the bright polka dot paper, rick rack, and the playful pictures of her son with the balloons. Thanks for sharing this fun page, Krystal!
