A few suitable digital creations....

Since I spend so much time at karate, swimming lessons, cub scouts, you name it....I have really enjoyed learning more about digital art and creating digital cards and pages. These were made out of digitally created images from a retired Stampin Up! stamp set called Suitable for Framing.

The rest of the elements were either created with Photoshop Elements or else put together from freebies found online.

Enjoy and Happy Stamping!

Springtime Stems Makeover

I have a stack of retired Stampin Up! stamps that I am hoping to send to someone else's home. In an effort to revive them, I have made up some digital cards to highlight the versatility of them. This set is an oldie but goodie. I created a digital image for two of the flowers and used them as the little blue background flower and the white flowers in the center of the card. All the other items were freebies that I found online. I love that you can find so many free digital scrapbooking items online. It makes learning free and fun. I have been throwing around the idea of putting some introductory "how to's" tutorial on here. If you think you might be interested, please spread the word and let me know. I use Photoshop Elements 9 which is SO worth the money. I had the older version and upgraded to 9 last winter. They have incorporated many of the standard Photoshop abilities into the home version. It is a great product.

If you are interested in purchasing springtime stems, drop me an email.
Here is a snapshot of what is in the set. ;)

Enjoy the card and Happy Stamping!

Procrastination Strikes Again...

I find that I am in one of those perpetual cycles of running late. It isn't a constant cycle, but once it gets started it's hard to stop. Needless to say, Mother's Day has snuck up on me this year and I have still not finished my cards. I think I need a stop button for my life so that everything stops but me, then I can run around like Mrs. Incredible (from the movie) and get everything caught up then restart the button. Doesn't that sound good? Alas, no stop button yet or rewind for that my Mother's Day cards will be late. (Sorry mom as I know you are reading this)

I am again participating in the PTI Make It Monday challenge. I like these because I learn something new (sometimes) and it motivates me to get down and stamp and have a goal to attain rather than just looking at my work space and admiring the one empty space that I have cleaned up. :D
Check out this weeks challenge here.

Here is my card

I swapped out the phrase in the embossed label area with different salutations depending on who the card was for. Check the supply list and always feel free to email with questions.

Happy Mom's Day to all those mom's out there and of course, Happy Stamping!
