Happy Book-a-thon Day, More Weekly Deals!

Good morning everyone!

I am participating in a Bookathon today with Stampin’ Up! and in order to earn the prize, I need at least 3 parties scheduled before Dec 31st. Who can I count on to help me out here? We could make ornaments, or tags or Christmas cards, gift card holders, gift packaging, banners, framed art, stocking stuffers, etc.

1459263_674040065959611_1628115534_nThis cute candy bar wrapper is one idea of something we can make or I can give as my thank you for your booking! So many choices!!
I would charge a small fee to cover supplies or it’s FREE with an order that night (contact me for those details). We can even have it at my house in my craft room, so you wouldn’t need to clean and prep your home – also a good option for those with limited table space!

Stampin’ Up! has some really cool kits and products available that aren’t even pictured in the catalogs right now. I have to report my bookings today so please let me know ASAP if you are interested! thanks!!

In other news, today is Tuesday, so Stampin’ Up! has announced their new weekly deals! These prices are good until Monday 11/11/13 at midnight.

Simply Sent App now available for Android!

image

This is an example of a Simply Sent birthday card I sent to my niece.

Hi there stamping friends! Do you ever remember a friend or family embers birthday and want to shoot them more than a text? Well do I have the solution for you! And it’s free! It’s called Simply Sent, an application for first iPhones and now Android phones!

Last November, Stampin Up announced that they had created and launched a card-making application-Simply Sent-for iPhone. Today they announced that we now have a Simply Sent for Android as well!

The Simply Sent App is not My Digital Studio on a mobile device, not even close. This scaled-back version will only give you a taste of what you can create when you buy MDS. We want to get our name and our art out there so more people than ever before will know about Stampin’ Up

We hope you’ll get excited about it as well and that you’ll do the following:

From your Android device, go to the Google Play Store. Search for Simply Sent, select the application, select install and follow the prompts.

As a reminder for iPhone: Download it from iTunes or the App Store.

For both devices, we hope you’ll love it, share it with all your friends, and post a review! The more positive reviews it gets, the more prominent place it takes in the Play Store and iTunes stores.

well, I’m off to pick out the fabric I want, at half off, I don’t want Stampin Up to run out before I buy mine.

Until tomorrow, happy stamping and crafting!

My Digital Studio- newest downloads

MDSHi there stamping friends! I had a couple of questions from my post yesterday (about the online class- I said you don’t need My Digital Studio to download that), so I thought it was time to do a post just about our software program, read on. (there is a free download at the end of this post).

Have you tried or wondered about our wonderful digital software product called MDS (for My Digital Studio)? I have been using this amazing software for over 4 years now, and I have to say it is truly the BEST product out there for creating custom Scrapbooks (we have lots of different sizes/styles), swatchbooks, recipe books (have you ever wanted to create an Heirloom Family Recipe book??? I’m thinking of organizing one with treasured family recipes.

Before I was a demonstrator, I used to use other products and made MANY digital scrapbooks. I have even used some of the cheap online scrapbooks that are always on sale. Well you get what you pay for…. I’m not going to mention any of their names, because I don’t want to be negative, but what I can say, is from the very first album I made with Stampin’ Up!’s MDS, I fell in LOVE!!  All the Stampin’ Up coordinating colors, stamps, papers, dies, punches, embellishments…. oh my goodness, it is so fun. Both of my nieces have made their own scrapbooks (with very LITTLE help from me), Jordan (she was 15 years old when she made her book) made a 12x 12 book for herself, and my niece Claire – she was 7 years old when she  made a 8 1/2 x 11″ book for her Mom (my sister) for Mother’s Day last year. My nephew’s Blake and Ethan (they were five and four years old respectively, when they first used MDS) have helped make books too, and they all love to help create our annual family calendar. What an awesome gift to give your family members, you can personalize the dates and input all your family’s important dates. Last year I even put a little photo of the birthday person on their calendar square. (I’ll try to upload a photo of the calendar so you can see what I mean). Kids are so computer savy these days, and not afraid to create at all.

You can use MDS to make party favors, invitation, party decorations, flyers, notebooks, newsletters, recipes, advertisements, signs, bulletin boards, sign up sheets, do you need custom fancy signs for any purpose? You can make it in MDS. The best part is, we have a free website at My Digital Studio website and you can watch tutorials on You Tube (be sure you watch the ones made by Stampin’ Up and they are all marked “stampinvideo” and they have a channel you can subscribe to, and learn so much!

Here is a little intro video that shows you how simple it is to use MDS to create some fun party decorations:

And if you want to learn how to print your MDS products from home, here is a handy quick video made by Stampin’ Up!

Every Tuesday Stampin’ Up releases all the newest digital downloads which can be purchased and added to your MDS product on your computer. Here is this week’s listing and new options- NOTE there is a free download this week, that cute little construction cone,  whether you order the whole party kit or not, you can have the free download anyway!
