Sunday Inspiration – Make BIG Plans!

goals Make Big Plans

I was at a leadership conference a few years ago and the keynote speaker said, “Don’t be afraid to give large assignments.  Large assignments inspire, cause people to reach higher, convey confidence.”  So I thought recently, why not me!  I need to Make Big Plans and inspire myself!

Download the FREE printable: Make Big Plans

I have struggled with a weight loss goal for some time.  I’ve made good changes in the way I exercise and eat in the last year, but I wasn’t reaching my ultimate goal.  The rest of my family is doing great, but I’m still stuck.  I have health issues that affect my weight, but that’s just an excuse.  It was time to inspire myself!

You know that investment company ad?  “What’s your number?”  Well, that’s what I needed  – a number.  And it’s working.  As soon as I focused on the vision, the ultimate goal instead of what I was doing from one minute to the next, everything changed.

So of course, I needed to make a cute sign in My Digital Studio 2, which I did very quickly.  Now I’m not going to share my number!  Sorry!  But I will share this “Make Big Plans” printable.

Happy Sunday, Julie

5 Digital Photo Scrapbook Ideas

MDS Marathon Photo Book There is no time like now to start scrapbooking!  When my children were young I had to drag out boxes of materials and printed photos to create scrapbook memories for my family.  Now it is so easy to put a whole album together for whatever theme, or event you choose.

 I didn’t start scrapbooking until my oldest daughters were 8 and 10, so they thought there were no pictures of them when they were young because the only pictures they saw were the pictures that made it into albums. And that didn’t happen until I started scrapbooking!

They were so shocked to learn that there were boxes of photos of their baby and toddler years hidden in the recesses of a dark closet.  And that’s what happens to our pictures and memories; no one sees them if we don’t start preserving them in a way that is accessible.

While I was at my sister’s house recently I photographed the covers of several My Digital Studio scrapbooks that she created for her family. So here are five ideas of photo books that can be created in My Digital Studio 2 that will allow your family to enjoy special moments forever.

1. Celebrate an Accomplishment – My nephew trained for and ran the Nashville Country Music Marathon during his senior year in high school.  My sister documented this special accomplishment and created this 8″ x 8″ photobook to commemorate it.

2. Honor a Special Person on a Special Occasion –  When our mother turned 70, my sister created this 8-1/2″ x 11″ photobook which included pictures and letters of appreciation to my mother from her brothers and sisters, son and daughters and grandchildren.  What an incredible gift.

MDS Birthday Photo Book

3. Create a Theme Book – In this case the theme was visits to Disney World, where five trips to Disney were documented with pictures and stories of the family adventures at the theme park.  Another great theme book is a Christmas or Holiday Theme photo book where you showcase pictures from several Holidays in chronological order.

4. Preserve the Memories of Summer Travel – Last summer my sister’s hubby was working in New York so the family spent a lot of time staying in Time Square.  Wow!  What a great experience and all the memories are preserved in this 12″ x 12″ photo book – We Were Here, NYC (2011).

MDS New York City Photo Book

5. Remember an Extra-Special, Once-In-A-Lifetime Trip – A few years ago, my brother-in-law was working in Japan for several months.  With all his traveling that year, he earned lots of frequent flier miles and at the end of his assignment in Japan, he was able to bring the whole family over!  The whole experience is replayed is this beautiful 12″ x 12″ photo scrapbook.

MDS Japan Trip Photo Book

Today, our most memorable trip was a trip to Disney in 2003 around which I created an entire scrapbook.  We can remember all the little nuances of that trip: the kids dancing with the street entertainers, the joy of getting wet unexpectedly in a water fountain, the funny faces we made waiting in line for a scary ride, taking pictures while we tried on all the goofy hats in the shop, and my hubby and I getting pulled out of the VERY large parade crowd to sing to each other in front of that VERY large parade crowd!  Crazy, fun memories!! 

Record your memories and enjoy your special moments forever!

sample wedding guest book 1

Create a Wedding Photo Guest Book

sample wedding guest book 1 A couple of years ago when my daughter got married, I created a photo guest book for the wedding, so their guest could sign in and add their well wishes.

It was super easy to do using My Digital Studio and a designer template.  In fact, it was my first time using the program and I completed the book in one morning.

sample wedding guest book 2

Using the Summer Home designer template, I simply eliminated some of the embellishments and photo boxes to allow for plenty of room for signatures and messages from their guests.

sample wedding guest book 3 I also changed out the colors in some cases.  For example, the page above and below had  a red background which would have been hard to write on, so I changed it to a Kiwi Kiss background, which was lighter.

sample wedding guest book 4

The brackets on this page were in Kiwi Kiss, so when I changed the background paper to Kiwi Kiss, I changed the brackets to Bashful Blue.  This is super easy to do with the My Digital Studio 2 update.  You just highlight the brackets, click on then’recolor’ icon and then choose the color you want.  After I eliminated the extra photoboxes and embellishments and rearranged a few things, I simply dropped the pictures into place and viola! instant wedding photo guest book!

The morning I created their wedding guest book, my laptop wasn’t working, so I used my son’s laptop.  As a result I lost the original file after I sent it to Stampin’ Up! to be printed, so I recreated it here so you could see how I did it.  I plan to create a video tutorial this week on how to create a photo guest book.

Enjoy, Julie
