My Digital Studio Family Sunday

Recently my daughter visited with her two kids.  It was so fun to take the kids to the zoo and enjoy their faces as we rode the Merry-Go-Round, watch the sea lion show, the bears, lions, giraffes, gorilla – well, you get the idea.

Occasionally on Sundays I like to share family pictures.  So here’s a few pages from an album I created in My Digital Studio of our visit to the zoo.  Enjoy!

1. 2. 3. 4.I used the 8×8 Hoppy Memories template which comes with the full version of My Digital Studios.  It has a frog theme but I decided to delete the frogs and then I just added pictures.  It was that simple!

Clean & Simple Zoo Inspired

You certainly don’t think of clean & simple with zoo, but look at this cute Punch Pals penquin friends card with it’s clean & simple designPenquins aren’t just for Christmas!  Aren’t they just engaging creatures?  So fun to watch as they dive through the water and then pop out onto the shore.

Technique:  Double Punching – The tags were punched with the Word Window punch.  The end of the tag was then reinserted from the top to trim off the end and create a shorter word window.  Technique:  Twine Tapping – I tapped the white baker’s twine with the brush end of the markers to add coordinating color for a little surprise.

The colors were inspired by the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper and here’s a matching envelope made in seconds with the fabulous Simply Scored Tool and Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.  This paper is available until Monday, April 30 with all the other Summer Smooches preorder.
