Friends Forever!

A friend and co-worker is moving to Washington state tomorrow and today was her last day in the office. She is going to be missed and to help her chronicle her drive to Washington I made her a pack of postcards titled ‘Kelly’s Khronicles’. I used MDS (My Digital Studio) to create the cute postcards.

I also made her this awesome card inspired by Linda Heller from Stamping School but I forgot to take into the office so through the mail it shall go. It will probably get to Washington state before she does!




I used the ‘Friends Who Know’ wood mount single stamp set, Chalk Lines stamp set, Cherry Cobbler card stock, Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities marker, Basic Metal Buttons, 1/8″ Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, Craft Stampin’Ink Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad and Designer Series Paper for the front of the card and to line the envelope. The Cherry Cobbler card stock was sponged with the White Craft Stampin’Ink, I also sponged the stamped image.

Here’s wishing Kelly and her husband a safe trip to Washington!

Hero…MDS Style

My friend Deb (Debra LaFountaine) had to make a birthday card for her 4 year old nephew’s birthday. She needed an emergency hero theme so MDS (My Digital Studio) came to the rescue!

Using the above digital download she was able to create these two awesome cards in just a few minutes!



I think she did a great job, don’t you?

Smash Cake Flip Album…Yum!

My niece Michelle Ugalde is a very talented photographer (check out her Facebook Page) so needless to say for her daughter’s first birthday cake she had a Smash Cake photo shoot. I printed the pictures and made a flip photo album (learned at my friend Vilmarie Maldonado’s class). By the way, my niece borrowed my cake plate and we dyed the ribbon with Tempting Turquoise ink to match her theme. I hope you like the finished product!
