A Whole New World!

Hey there, Peeps!

Wow!  What a wonderful weekend we've had.  Linz, of course, will say (quite often), "Wow! This was the BEST day EVER!" and she totally means it.  She's said that a lot this weekend and it's been SO much fun spending family time together.

Before I get ready for bed I wanted to share a new project with you.  It's one that's been "outside my box" I think.  I am still getting my feet wet with Stampin' Up's "My Digital Studio" but let me just tell you that I'm more than just a little addicted!  There are SO many amazing digital stamp sets, papers, ribbons and accessories that come with the original bundle and every Tuesday SU! releases new downloads that you can purchase as you'd like.  They are SO  affordable and I love playing with the program and creating new and fun projects.

A few weeks ago I saw a post on Pinterest where someone had created paper bags by creating a saying on their computer and then she ran the bag through her printer and printed them out.  Well...my brain went straight to MDS and I thought, "OMG!!  Think of the possibilities by pairing the two ideas together!"  I have created a bunch on my computer and am starting to print them out onto bags.  This is the first on I made....


This is one of the stamp "brush" sets that comes with the original MDS program.  I added a few flowers and leaves and changed the colors to the ones I liked.  I punched out 3 flowers and embossed them to add a little "pop"....added a piece of ribbon and VOILA....a fun little gift bag.

Now....Stampin' Up! just announced that they will be premiering MDS2 very soon.  That is VERY exciting!  There are SO many things to create with it.  The possibilities are endless.   It's not just for scrapbooking.  That's for sure.  There are invitations, cards, shower favors, gifts items, signs, stickers, bags.......and MORE....

If you haven't tried it and you'd like to.....you can TRY IT FOR FREE FOR 30 DAYS!  That's right.  Just go to my Online Stampin' Store and you can download the My Digital Studio Program for FREE.  You can create projects and send them to be printed right from the comfort of your couch.  Your order will be delivered lickity split to your front door.  If you'd rather, you can save the projects to your computer and send them to your local photo place and have your projects printed there instead.  I send mine to Costco when I need them back in a hurry and can't wait.

I'll be sharing more MDS projects in the coming weeks so stay tuned.

Alrighty....I wish you all a wonderful week ahead.  We have quite a full calendar this week.  Whew!

Have a magical Monday and stop back by again soon!

  2. What a great idea! I'm afraid mine would jam. What type of printer do you have? Did you just put the bag in the paper tray, or feed through a special way?
    I take my usb drive to FedEx self service to print most of my MDS stuff onto my whisper white. I wonder if they would mine if I put a bag through? I guess I could ask!
