Truly, love is the only thing that really matters!
When you back into your garage door…yes, I did that…all that really matters is love.
When you’re ten minutes late for an appointment because you lost track of time….yes, I did that too…love is all that really matters.
When you don’t agree about politics…it’s true, my husband and I don’t agree…love is the answer.
When you are overwhelmed and you’re not sure what to do…love.
When you’re sad and lonely…love.
When you feel sick and tired and tired and sick…the answer is love.
LOVE is always the answer!
I believe in God. And I believe that God loves us with a powerful love that is incomprehensible. And I believe that when we replace all our sad, bad, lonely, frustrated feelings with love, we fill our lives with God’s love.
And that is powerful.
What’s all this have to do with stamping? Maybe nothing. Except that I feel so blessed to have stamping and you in my life. And I feel blessed to hear about how you bless others with your handcrafted cards and gifts.
This is the fabulous card my sister gave to me for my birthday. She designed these 5″ x 7″ birthday cards in MDS and then sent them straight from the software to Stampin’ Up! to be printed. The printed cards are really nice and they come with envelopes too.
She used the Comfort Café digital dsp for the background on the front, the back and the inside. She added a Crumb Cake band across the middle front, a Very Vanilla decorative label punch and a Night of Navy happy birthday stamp from the Engraved Greetings digital stamp brush set.
After adding the background to the back she included a Night of Navy filled punch with her initials to personalize her creation.
She kept it simple on the inside with more dsp at the top and a ‘make it a good one’ greeting.
Make a few of your own birthday cards and order them today so you’ll always have what you need on hand.
This week my daughter announced her new baby due in November with these cute pictures of my granddaughter holding a chalkboard sign declaring her upcoming status as ‘Big Sister’! So cute!! And so exciting! And ‘Big Sister’ has a new cousin coming in October, so this November baby will be grandbaby #5! Wow – I feel so blessed!
We all know it’s important to document family milestones. And we know that scrapbooking is a fantastic way to do it, but sometimes we don’t scrapbook these events because of our perfectionism. We don’t want to do it unless we can do it ‘right.’ I guess that’s one of the many things I LOVE about MDS. I can do it, do it ‘right’ and do it FAST!
With traditional scrapbooking I would have spent a couple of hours creating a layout for these pictures, but with MDS this layout took me 10 minutes!! I selected the Split Second Designer Template, dropped in the pictures, shifted the ‘arrow’ embellishment a little to fit the picture and added journaling – that’s it! Done!
Isn’t this the sweetest picture of this cute baby!? My lovely and talented niece Rachel Brinkerhoff, affectionately nicknamed Roo, is a part-time photographer and MDS expert. She took this wonderful picture and created this pinterest-inspired baby announcement in My Digital Studio. Fabulous!
In MDS you can make announcements like this one and choose how you’ll share it, from emailing to printing professionally. And with the new super low price on My Digital Studio, you can be a digital hero soon too! It’s only $19.95 for the software.
