I would love some feedback on my new background, too!

I can't tell you how easy it was to make this invitation. It took me less than an hour to design the invitation, settle on the wording, and send it to over 50 people via email. It couldn't get any easier than that!
Of course, I could have also had these invitations printed and mailed them through snail mail, but we were a little short on time since the party is Wednesday. I could have printed this at any number of printing locations, but I would have done it through Stampin' UP! Not only does SU have a competitive price for printing, but the colors precisely match SU's great colors if I had wanted to make this invite a hybrid and add some embellishments to it after printing.
You can order My Digital Studio through my online store. The item number is #118108. I have recently become certified in MDS, so I would also love to bring a My Digital Studio class or workshop to you and your friends. If you live in Salt Lake City or surrounding areas, contact me to set that up. If you are out of my area, I would be happy to connect you with one of my fellow demonstrators near you!
So, what do you think of this invitation?

This was the card I made to go with the gift. It was actually a standard card measuring 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Apparently, my scanner didn't want to recognize the white card base. Unfortunately, I didn't notice until now, and I've already given the card away, so just imagine a white border around the Bashful Blue card stock. :)

The next set of Thank You cards I made were for my birthday. These are some of my favorite cards that I've made recently. I love the new In Colors, stamps and Designer Series Paper in the 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog. I think this card showcases them nicely!

This box ended up being one of those "happy accidents." I was adapting the measurements from a smaller box to fit my needs, but my paper wasn't long enough for the box to completely close upon itself. I decided to try adding a brad and some ribbon to make a latch. This box easily fits six A2 envelopes and six 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards.
To keep the box closed, I added a brad and ribbon before embellishing the box. You can see the finished box here. If you want a box that closes completely, begin with an 8x12 piece of cardstock. In addition to the instructions for this box, you will also score the paper horizontally at the 11 inch mark.
I think these make great gifts!

I have been creating, but I haven't been posting. I misplaced my USB adapter to download pictures from my cartridge, and I wasn't in the mood to get on the slooow computer to download straight from the camera. Yeah, I can be lazy!

However, I don't think I ever ended up posting pics from the baby book I made for cute little Max! I didn't use any Stampin' UP! products on this book, because I started it before I was using SU! products and before I became a demo.
I mostly used my Cricut and paper from Die Cuts With a View from the Baby Boy stack. For the die cuts, I mostly used the New Arrival cartridge with my Cricut. I used SCAL for a lot of the fonts to add some variety.
I don't think these pages even represent half of the book. So, this is just a sneak peak! Stay tuned for more pages!

For this card, I used Chocolate Chip CS for the base, Pink Pirouette CS for the stipes, Candy Lane for the polka dot paper, Riding Hood Red CS for the mat, and Whisper White CS for the stamped image. I inked the edge of the WW with Chocolate Chip ink and a sponge. I stamped the image in Chocolate Chip and used the Blender Pen and the ink-in-the-lid technique using Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette inks. I used the Masking technique to overlap the word "Love" and the birds. I punched out hearts using the Heart to Heart Punch and adhered them to the card using snail. I then used 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds SU! glitter.
This first card I made using some paper from my stash. I stamped the image in Chocolate Chip on SU Whisper White Cardstock and colored the image using a Blender Pen and the Magic Colored Pencil Technique (MCPT or Gamsol). I used the SU 2-way glue pen on the frosting and added SU Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter.
On the inside of the card, I stamped "hope your day is the sweetest ever!" which is also from this stamp set. This is such a great set for birthday cards. I made a set of them at once, so I would have cute cards on hand when needed!
I made this next card using a base of Whisper White CS and SU Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. This is one of my favorite sets of SU paper! I think I love this set because it has several different polka dot sheets and the combination of pink and brown makes my heart sing!
I stamped the image in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White CS and colored the image using Blender Pens and the ink-in-the-lid technique with Close to Cocoa, Riding Hood Red, and Pink Pirouette. I tied Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon around the front and used the SU Scallop Edge punch along the floral layer of paper. I think I made this card at a card demo by my upline Natalie.
This paper is only available for a few more months, so stock up now if you love it as much as I do!

In addition, I'm also running a special for the month of April. For every order you place through me, I'll send you a Classic or Craft inkpad in your color choice when your order totals $50 or more (before taxes, and S + H). Now is a great time to buy SU! products or to host a workshop!

First, I went to www.thecutestblogontheblock.com. After picking one of their free backgrounds, I stumbled across the tutorials. Since I have been wanting to play around with Photoshop, I decided to create my own background. I used elements I found at www.shabbyprincess.com. They have the cutest templates on their site, and many of them are free!!
Tomorrow (maybe) I'll tackle my header.
What do you think??

This was one of the first cards I made with my Cricut. I cut the words from DoodleType, the flowers are a Martha Stewart punch, and once again I used Skittles for the flower centers.
