Hi Strangers! Happy New Year. It's been tooooooo long again since I blogged, but I have had too much going on to even have time to stamp, let alone take a photo, then upload it to the blog. BUT, I have something to share today!
I've been working on a 1st Birthday scrapbook for my nephew Will. His first birthday was Dec. 23, 2009 - and naturally my scrapbook is just getting done now. Eek! I consider it a 13-month present for him, rather than sticking to the traditional 12-month/1-year present. :) At least he's only 1 year old and won't know the difference if my present is late.... a year or two from now, he'll surely know when he doesn't get a present on time! Whew! :)
I have been using My Digital Studio for the scrapbook, and I've learned a lot about the program in the meantime! It's basically user-friendly and has lots of great options. I love that everything coordinates (in true Stampin' Up! fashion) and the Digital Kits are really the best. Once I figured those out, the pages came together quite nicely. MDS comes with some predesigned layouts... I opted for making my own -- most of which I copied out of the Stampin' Up! catalog or Stampin' Success magazines. I've never scrapbooked before, so coming up with original designs is tricky for me.
Anyway, here's my favorite 2-page spread. Isn't Will a cutie????
I am about to send this off to the printer, so hopefully time will free up for me to do some actual stamping!
Thanks for looking!
