My Digital Studio - Blog Banners

Spring is almost here and I plan to change my blog banner each season. So, I worked on my Spring and Summer banners using My Digital Studio (MDS).  I'll wait to make my Fall banner after the new Stampin' Up! catalog comes out in the summer.  The banners were very easy to create once I settled on the layout.  As you can see, the major changes made were colors and stamp sets.

MDS Supplies:
All used Just Perfect Alphabet stamp set and White Stitching embellishment. Changed the opacity to give the different shades
  • Winter: see details here
  • Spring - Barely Banana, Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Creamy Caramel, CheepTalk, Good Friend, Pumpkin Pie embellishment
  • Summer: Pink Passion, Summer Sun, Pretty in Pink, Green Galore, Enjoy Every Moment
Have a great weekend!

Here's a stationery box I designed for Craft Project Central for the March bonus project. The box can hold upto 12 cards and 12 envelopes. There is a divider in this box so you can put the cards in one side and the envelopes in the other.  And when you run out of stationery, you can refill with more handmade cards or use it to organize small items like bills, receipts, etc. To receive this bonus project and learn how to make the eight cards and the box, subscribe to two or more months in a row, put our badge on your blog, or refer a friend and let us know!

This is the first March project designed by Naoko.  Sign up and learn how to create this beautiful tiara (and best of all, at the end of the instructions, you will see a really CUTE model wearing the tiara).
