MDS Blog Hop - Using Stamps in Other Programs

Welcome to another "What we're working on" MDS Blog Hop day! I haven't been working on a whole lot lately. I finally got my foot cast removed yesterday and am having an "interesting" time trying to walk on it again. And by interesting, I mean not-very-fun-at-all.

BUT I've been trying to keep the girls Project Life albums caught up since that's pretty simple, for me just uploading photos to Sam's Club. But sometimes I like to add a little something to take up some empty space. Like this picture of the girls and Grandpa in the pool.

It's super-simple in MDS, but what about other programs? I did this one quickly in Photoshop! Three years ago I posted a tutorial video on how to do this using MDS elements, here is the link again if you aren't sure how to accomplish this!

This uses the brand new Rise and Shine kit which I LOVE (very Project Life-y!). I will be using this one LOTS!

Don't forget to visit the other talented ladies on the hop to see what they're working on lately -- and we have a new hopper, the very talented Julie Davidse! :)

MDS Blog Hop - Celebrate SU!

Today's Blog Hop projects have the theme: Celebrate Stampin' Up! At first, I wasn't sure what to do -- convention is coming up, but with my recent foot surgery I'm not able to make the trip to Salt Lake City. But then I thought about last year and how Stampin' Up! sent all of the new digital CD's and asked me to create projects for them to display at convention.

It was so fun to make the different projects and even cooler to go to convention and SEE the projects I made displayed in front of thousands of other demonstrators. So cool! And really - what other direct sales company gives their demonstrators opportunities like that? That's what makes Stampin' Up! such a great company and why I'm 'celebrating' them today by posting one of the scrapbook pages I made for them to use last year. This is one of the ones they didn't display, so I'm sharing it now. :)

Ready to see what the other hop ladies created? And don't forget to check out Julie's -- our guest designer for the month of July! (All links below)
