We're entering the final stretch for Christmas. This is the last week to get your shopping done, bake those cookies, wrap the presents and get your singing voice ready for Christmas carolling! I only have a couple more presents to buy; haven't made any cookies yet; haven't wrapped the first present; and don't have a singing voice! I did make some tags tonight so I can do my wrapping tomorrow and finally put something under the tree besides dust. What about you? Are you ready for Santa?
I had a great time this weekend making digital calendars! I am just so proud of them. I subscribe to a monthly on-line magazine, Paper and Pixels. It is fairly new and is free. They have some really good articles and ideas. If you are interested, here is a link to them - ( http://www.papersandpixels.com/). Saturday, I was reading the magazine and they had information about a CD calendar. There was a download of the calendar template and several other links to the calendar. I downloaded all of their information and opened up My Digital Studio and that's all it took. I created three different calendars using parts of their download and a lot of the paper, stamps and embellishments from Stampin' Up. What fun I had!! Here is a peek at a couple of the pages.
January - everything came downloaded on the page except - the snowflake at the top, the brads in the middle of the snowflake, the skaters (which I colored after printing it out), and the big snowman.February - Again, everything printed out as is. I just added from MDS, the items in the 3 boxes and the heart stamp on the calendar. After I printed it out, I added a real pink corduroy button where the rhinestone is.
The more I use My Digital Studio, the more I really love it!! It really got a work out this weekend!! I ended up printing the calendar pages on some glossy white paper that I had and they turned out super.
Oh - by the way, I didn't wake up yesterday to snow! I never saw any snow at my house although a few areas around us got snow - just no accumulation. My mom called in the afternoon to say she had seen some really big flakes at her house. Oh well - maybe for Christmas!
