Today I received a box from Stampin' Up! that contained all the Build-A-Bear Workshop products plus My Digital Studio which I have just been playing with for the last 2 hours!  It is totally awesome.  You can create custom projects and projects form templates.  It contains lots of stamp sets, designer papers, even embellishments that come in our exclusive colors and designs.  I had so much fun playing with all the  different options in this great new program.  The software will be available for you to purchase, starting on October 1-2009.


Here is the first project I created, a Christmas Jingle card and this was done with a pre-designed template.  Check out the scalloped oval frame, the grosgrain ribbon and even brads that you can choose in the colors you desire.  I created this in about 2 minutes!  Very simple but also very cute!  Besides the finished projects you can even create layouts from scratch for both scrapbook pages and cards.  The program is very easy to use and if you are computer savvy at all you will find it effortless to create new projects.  The exciting thing is that you will be able to print the finished products at a professional printers, including calendars, scrapbooks and books that are all professionally bound.  Imagine what you can do with those kind of possibilities!!!





For my second project I did the front cover of a calendar and built it from scratch.  Again I found it very simple to add the different elements in the design.

2010 CALENDAR-001















I have used this picture before in a previous Scrapbook layout but this of course is a completely different look.  Please notice that the following were used in my design and were all available in the "My Digital Studio" program.

  • Picture was chosen from a file on my computer
  • Polka dot paper was Garden Green Designer Paper which comes in all kinds of our colors and different designs in the software
  • Buttons were added from the program... it even allows you to put a shadow around the button to make it look more 3-D like a real scrapbook page.  How cool is that?
  • Ribbon comes already tied in the perfect bow!  I simply chose where I wanted it and added the shadow.
  • The text "2010 Calendar" was created by using a dropper to pick up one of the colors from the actual picture so you get the perfect match for your photos!
  • The flower branches added to the top left and right hand corners is from our stamp set, "Thoughts & Prayers" and I "stamped" them in Crushed Curry to match the buttons and bow.  Here's a neat trick, once you choose a stamped image you have the options to mirror the image or flip them.  That's how I got them going in opposite directions in the upper corners.

I have to say just on the little bit of time I was playing with this program it's a must have.  It is more than worth the price because just the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set alone is $34.95 and their are lots of stamp sets in the program. embellishments, card-stock and designer papers!  It's like having the catalog come to life on your computer!!!  I can't wait to demonstrate this for you at my October Holiday Mini Open House!  If you haven't signed up yet what are you waiting for?

Here are my cards for today's Mojo Monday Challenge:
