This and That

I am so in love with the This and That digital kit!  But ... if you don't want to go digital, you can get the This and That bundle that includes Designer Series Paper, stamps, journal, washi tape, and stickers that all coordinate.  I have ordered the bundle and it is waiting for me at home.  I'll be sharing it when I go home. 

Today is the Paper Pals Challenge #37.  I used the This and That kit to make my card.

I made this in honor of our 40th anniversary
I liked the card so much, I made another one to send to Ashley.  She found out today that she got the job she had applied for as Program Director for Transitional Medicine.  I am so happy for her!  She works hard and deserves it.

MDS Challenge 2 - Multiple Photo Box

I can't believe I forgot to post this - I wrote it but just now found it in my Drafts so guess I didn't share.

Our MDS challenge last week was to use one photo with multiple photo boxes.

Here is mine:

What you need to do for this effect is:

•Create the number of photo boxes you want (create one and copy and paste)
•Group the photo boxes
•Apply drop shadow and mat
•Drag and drop photo into the boxes - they should all turn blue.

Here is a video by Heather Summers -

Papercraft Crew Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Here is this weeks challenge sketch we are working with at the Paper Craft Crew. St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner and the Paper Craft Crew is celebrating it in this week's challenge #33 with their theme of St. Patrick's Day.  I was inspired by a couple of different things I'd seen on Pinterest to make this card.  I made the card using MDS2.  I wasn't sure whether I had a shamrock or not but after doing a search with the Global Search feature, I found the circular stamp with the shamrock in the middle.  So .... I just cropped that shamrock out, enlarged it, colored it green, lowered the opacity and put it behind the saying. 

Here is the sketch we were working with:


Hope you will hop on over to the Paper Craft Crew page and check out the other members version of St. Patrick's Day.

MDS Challenge Week 1

Last week I challenged my NC demonstrators (and you too) to create a page or card or something on My Digital Studio using the "text on a path" technique.  Here are some of the entries:

Beth Fox also followed the color challenge from

Mary Ellen Harrison had good intentions of the freeform text but decided against it.  Love her page anyway!

Regina Andari's cute birthday card - she created the free form text in the balloon.

Makes you want a popsicle, huh?  This cutie is done by Karen Culler.

Elegant card by Pam Staples - waiting for those May flowers!

Circular text by Debbie Michael.

A card by Marcia Enns - this is the inside

Marcia's card front

Marcia even used the free form text on the back of the card!  Great job!!
 Here is what Marcia had to say after doing the challenge - "I started with a Designer Template to create this A2 card, and I managed to attach text to a freeform line on the card front, the inside of the card, and the “hallmark” on the back of the card.  Not only was this great practice with attaching text, but I also played with page layers, drop shadows, opacity, and more!  The more I do, the more excited I am about MDS. " 

That's what it's all about!!

MDS Challenge - Text on a Path

As you know, I taught a class last week to some of my fellow NC demonstrators and users of My Digital Studio2.  As a result of that I have decided to offer a weekly challenge for using different features of MDS2.  It may be a way to use different things with MDS2 or a scrapbook sketch or color challenge.  I am going to start with a weekly challenge and see how it goes.  It could end up being every other week .... we'll see. 

So my first challenge to you is to use the Freeform Tool and make some text on a path.  On the sample I have made below, I put my text (the words from a Zac Brown song that is also my cell phone ring tone!) in a circle.  The steps I took to do this are:
  • Create a text box and type my text.  Try different fonts and sizes for fun.  I used KG The Fighter font (free download) and size 20.
  • Go to the Freeform tool on the Designer Center (right side) and click on Add Line.
  • I used the Starter Lines and clicked on the Circle.  Apply it to your project and size it how you want it.
  • Click on both your text box and Freeform tool line (hold down Control key)
  • Right click and "Attach to Shape"
  • You may have to play around with the size of font, etc. to get it all to work.
Here are a few videos that I found that might help with this technique from other demonstrators:

And here is my sample (click on it to enlarge it):

Text in a Circle - Freeform Tool
So won't you join in the challenge and share a page?  I'd love to see it!

Get Creative With MDS2 Templates

Already Wednesday?  How time flies.  I've been on the go all week.  Monday I played bridge (and got high score!), then met Sonny at Discount Tire so they could repair my flat tire.  We shopped around a bit for a new TV for his room.  There was a 32" Magnavox advertised at Target at a good price.  But of course, we get there and they don't have any in stock.  The ad just came out on Sunday - good old "bait and switch!"  Tuesday I went to the dentist for my cleaning.  Ugh, I need 2 small fillings.  I'll be going back again next week for that.  After meeting a friend to give her Stampin' Up order, I headed over to the Huntersville Target.  They had one tv in stock but one was all I needed so now Sonny isn't having to watch tv with a magnifying glass tonight.  After a quick lunch, I headed to the body shop to get my bumper fixed and to WalMart. 

So are you anxious to see my creation this week?  Here is the sketch we had to work with:

And here is my card:

I created this card using MDS2 and worked from a template. If you are new to My Digital Studio, I suggest you start with a template and just change things around. This particular template is from the Smitten Alphabet and is for a 8x8 page (I think). Here is what the template looked like before I started altering it:

So give it a try - find a template you like on MDS2 and play around with it.  There are probably a lot of templates you don't even know you have.  That is the case with me.  I spent some time the other day just looking at all the templates and jotting down some of my favorites that I want to play around with.

Paper Craft Color/Sketch Challenge #26

The Sketch Challenge for this week also included a color challenge.  The colors remind me of spring so I decided to do a pinwheel card with MDS2.

Here is the sketch for this week:

And here is my card which is loose translation of the sketch:

I used all elements and stamps from the Pinwheel Parade Kit.  Love this kit - especially for spring!

Stampin' Up offers a challenge every two weeks or so for digital creators.  It is open to anyone who has MDS or MDS2 - not just demonstrators.  I have entered a few of their challenges and even got a Honorable Mention a couple of months ago.  But I want to WIN!!  This week the challenge is to create a journal to write your goals or New Year's resolutions down.  They say that it can’t hurt your chances if other people think your sample is grand too. So I would love your you to sign up at so you can comment or just click on "like" or "favorite" on my journal creation!  Here is a link to my journal but I think you have to sign up first (link above).

Pictures from our trip

made with MDS2
Hope you are having a wonderful 2013 so far ..... 364 more days to go so make the best of each and every one of them. Sonny and I enjoyed a good movie last night (Jack Reacher) and are just "vegging" today while we watch my favorite parade, the Rose Parade. Some day I will be there watching it in person.

Thought I would share a few of the pictures I've taken while on our trip. I haven't done any card making so don't have any creative items to share. My new catalog items are waiting for me at home so I hope to be sharing some new things with you next week. We will start the drive back home tomorrow and have Christmas with my NC family on Sunday.

A Spanish Terrible Towel - these people were from Mexico cheering on the Steelers!  I tell you, Steeler fans are everywhere!
I got to meet Reed Coskey!  Such a cutie!

Sammie's favorite spot at Ashley's house!

Another cutie - we met one of our son's best high school friends (Landon & wife Rachel) for breakfast in Grapevine and I got to play with Liam Montgomery

Happy 2013

Well, I watched the last Steeler game of the season today.  They won't be going to the play offs this year - the first time in a long time!  Hopefully, they will do some major rebuilding during the off season and come back stronger than ever next year.  It always amazes me how fast football season goes - seems like it just got started.  Since the game was a "no-count" game today, it was not on tv here so Ashley & I went to Buffalo Wild Wings and watched it there.  The past two Sundays, Ashley and I have been on our own watching the Steelers since Sonny went shooting with our brother-in-law.  After the game, she and I visited Michael's, Kohl's, Bed & Bath, and the mall (which was crazy!!) to do some returns and also to check out the After Christmas Sales.  We got some good deals today and yesterday when we went over to her base and picked up a few things at the PX. 

Last night we went over to Ashley's friends house, Lisa & Danny for dinner.  Danny is the cook in the family and he cooked us a delicious meal.  After dinner and visiting with them for a bit, we headed off to a local club, Martini's which was a popular hang out for Ashley and her friends in medical school.  Ashley had told some of her friends about the place recently and they wanted to check it out so we met them there.   We always enjoyed going to Martini's when we visited Ashley and listening to the owner, Wayne, perform.   He puts on an amazing show doing a Vegas style act and covers songs by Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond, Willie Nelson, the Beach Boys, all the greats.  His voice imitates these singers remarkedly.  He has a full band backing him up and he often switches instruments from guitar, banjo, saxophone, and trumpet.   If you ever visit San Antonio, you need to check this place out!  Their martinis aren't bad either (just a tad expensive)!!

Hope you have big plans for New Year's.  What will you be doing to welcome in 2013?  Sonny and I are going to a movie while Ashley goes out with her girlfriends.  Be safe and have a wonderful New Year!!

I made this card using MDS2 but it would be super easy to recreate using paper and stamps.

Are You Ready for Some Football?

I made this 12x12 page on MDS2 today.  It is part of my "homework" from the MDS class I am taking.  Don't you love it???!!!  It's that time again.  Tomorrow is the first game and I remembered to bring my Steelers Jersey so I am ready for some football!!  Love this time of year.

This picture was taken in the grocery store the day of the Super Bowl.  It was an awesome sight.  The pictures of the food on the side are some of the good eating we do when we are in Pittsburgh.  The top two pictures of the fries and hot dog are from the "O" (Original Hot Dog) stand which is located right beside the Pitt campus.  It has been there for more than 50 years so you know it's good.  We always have to make a visit there for fries and a hot dog.  My first visit there is still a joke to us.  I had gone home with Sonny from NC to meet his parents.  We went to Pittsburgh for some sightseeing and stopped off at the "O".  Being a Carolina gal, I ate my hot dogs with chilli and mustard usually.  So, that's the way I ordered it at the "O".  Little did I know, they did not know what hot dog chilli was and served my hot dog with their type of chilli - with beans.  Sonny's dad looked at me pretty strangely as I was picking out the beans from my hot dog.  30+ years later and we are still laughing about it when we go to Pittsburgh.

The next picture is of my favorite food!!  It is an Italian Hoagie from Danny's.  Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.  Danny's is another institution in Pittsburgh - been there at least 50 years probably.  There used to be a drive in theatre behind the restaurant and Sonny said they would come over from the drive in and get sandwiches and go back & watch the movie.  Our kids grew up eating there whenever we would visit.  Although there were a few times when Sonny & I would sneak out, leaving the kids at home with grandma and head over to Danny's for a quick hoagie.  (Although it is probably 30 minutes from Sonny's home!)  When Marianne went with us to Pittsburgh, we got her hooked on the hoagie too.  We usually get a "to go" box to take back with us.  They layer the meat, onions, tomatoes, etc. in a pizza box and give us the bread and signature Italian dressing so we can make them when we get home.  I've just never found a sandwich as good as Danny's anywhere else and we are constantly looking.

The final picture is funnel cake!  So yummy!  But truthfully, it's the same funnel cake you can get other places.  I don't even know where that picture was taken.  Once when Marianne and Harrison went with us to Pittsburgh to a game, we ate at an Italian restaurant close to our hotel and ordered funnel cake for dessert.  We still talk about that dessert.  It was like funnel cake on steroids!  It was huge and fed all of us.
Well, time for this gal to "hit the hay."  Hope you enjoyed my culinary page about Pittsburgh AND you will be cheering on the Steelers tomorrow like I will be!

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Just a quick post to share with you my Paper Crew Challenge card this week.  I used MDS2 (as usual) and had fun with these hexagons.

We worked out in the yard most of the day Tuesday pulling weeds and cleaning up some of the mess that the contractors left in Ashley's yard.  There are a lot of issues with the work that was done and Ashley called the contractor to come by today and look at things - fence, concrete work, sprinkler system not working, trash and planks from original fence just left laying in the yard, etc.  He was not happy when he saw some of the shoddy work that was done and told Ashley he would make it right.  We've got the irrigation people coming on Thursday and hopefully, some of the other workmen to fix things.  We went to the movies Tuesday night to see Bourne Legacy.  It was pretty good.  We are going to Brenham on Wednesday to take a tour of the best ice cream company in the world .... Blue Bell!  I have been there before but it was on a weekend and the tours are not offered on the weekend. 

I lost a good friend and fellow Stampin' Up demonstrator this weekend.  I just learned of her death today.  I knew she was close to the end but was still shocked and saddened.  Becky was such a great gal and always so upbeat even while she was fighting for her life for the past year.  She will be missed by a lot of people.

Subway Art

I forgot how hot it is in Texas!!  When we arrived on Thursday afternoon (at 5:30) it was still 100 degrees!  The forcast for this week is 99, 99, 99, 98, 98, 98 ..... get the picture?  Pretty boring, huh??  We've gotten a lot done at Ashley's though.  She's about worn out her credit card though!  Friday I think she spent about $400 at Home Depot and today was another $100 at Garden Ridge!  But hey ... the labor is free!  Sonny has been working on putting two ceiling fans up on her patio.  He should have them done tomorrow.  Saturday I spent most of the day planting plants and flowers in big pots in the back yard.  We planted Texas sage, lantana, pampas grass, potato vine, basil and rosemary.  Plus, I dug up some morning glory from the back that had pretty much overgrown the alley and stuck it in one of the pots.  Today, we went shopping and bought a couple more pots at Garden Ridge plus got some material so I can cover some pillows and do some other home decor,  We've hung pictures in the house and bought a couple more today that we'll have to hang tomorrow.  Sunday we took a break.  My brother and his wife, daughter and three grandchildren came over plus my brother in law who helped Sonny do some work that he was having problems with.  We had a nce visit, swim and cooked some yummy fajitas on the grill (plus made some margaritas that hit th spot.)

Subway art seems to be all the rage right now.  So, I thought I'd try it with MDS2.  What do you think?  It was fun!

Scrapbook Challenge #1

Well, I am in Texas and it's hot!  We left Charlotte at 12:45 with an hour's layover in Atlanta.  No hitches - until were on the plane in Atlanta to go to San Antonio.  After we were all boarded, they announced that there was a mechanical problem and the technicians were working on it.  If it couldn't be fixed, we would have to get off the plane until they could get another plane for us.  Thankfully, it was able to be fixed but we were about an hour late in leaving Atlanta.  We ended up arriving in San Antonio about 5:30 instead of 4:30.  But it was still hot - 100 degrees at the time we landed!  It was still 91 at 11:00 pm while watching the news!!  We had our first (of many I'm sure) Mexican dinner tonight.  Yum - guacamole, enchiladas, tamales, sangria, chips, salsa and sopapillas!!   It's good to be back!

The Paper Craft Crew is having it's first scrapbook challenge.  I made mine on the plane coming here yesterday..  I used pictures from our recent trip to the Outer Banks.  Here is my take on the sketch we were to use:

Paper Crew Sketch Challenge

Please say a little prayer for my computer!  I'm worried it is on it's last legs.  I spent yesterday working on trying to speed it up and think it helped a bit.  But it's getting old in computer years I guess - about 5 years old (I think) so looks like I'll be shopping for a new one in the near future.  Hoping it can hold on until Christmas when there will be some sales.  I also worked diligently yesterday on my MDS2 Alaska album.  The deadline for the 31% off sale has been extended to mid September so I'm hoping to get it finished and off to the printer by then.  We leave tomorrow for Texas for a couple of weeks so I'll be working on the album on the airplane as well as at Ashley's (while Sonny does his handy man jobs!!)  That is another thing I like about MDS - I don't have to be hooked up to the internet and can work on it in the car, plane, etc.

(Well, my computer must have know I was talking about her .... the power went out as I was typing this for about 30 minutes!  Luckily, this was saved!)

So, I didn't get to post my Paper Crew Sketch Challenge last night as my computer was "defragging" whatever that means.  It was actually still in the process this morning so I don't know if it really did anything or not but I turned it off.  I had things to do, people to see ......!!!!

I once again did my sketch using MDS2 and I love it.  This card also was for a color challenge from Heather where I am taking her MDS2 classes.  The colors are:  Sahara Sand, Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White.  Go ahead .... create something with those colors.  They are probably colors you wouldn't usually use, isn't that right?  And I know my good friend, Margaret has lots of Crushed Curry cards stock!!!   That is my challenge to you today.

Again this would be a very easy card to duplicate using good old card stock and ink! 

POSTING END TIME:  If you'd like to be considered as one of our spotlight cards, please be sure to link your project by Monday 7 AM EST and  link your post over to here too :)

VOTING: Starting on Monday, August 20th at 7 AM EST, you can start voting on the entries.  The voting will end on Tuesday, September 4th at 10 AM EST.
