Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #32


Hi Stamping Friends!!  I'm so glad you took a minute to stop by today.  We have a yummy inspiration challenge for you at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  Doesn't all that chocolate just make your taste buds tingle?!  I LOVE chocolate!!  And these photos make my mouth water.  That brownie looks to die for!!! 

For my project this week, I went digi.  I would love to say that I used only Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio, but I will admit that I cheated a little.  All of my components are from MDS, the digi papers and embellishments.  But I actually created the entire thing in PhotoShop Elements.  I have MDS, but I've been working for years with PSE, long before SU! came out with MDS.  And since I'm so used to how PSE works, I always go to it first.  It's a case of you can't teach an old dog new tricks.  I really just need to sit down and familiarize myself with MDS.  But who has time to sit?!


CHRISTMAS JINGLE


These are my sisters kids.  And yes, she has TWO sets of twins!!!  Lots of people tease her and tell her that she should try for one more set, but she gets extremely sick when she is pregnant.  It's not pretty.  We are talking IV's, stay's in the hospital, pic lines, the whole enchilada.  So I think she's done.

This card measures 7.5 x 6.  All of the elements come from the Christmas Jingle digital kit.  She saw this layout somewhere online, so I CASEd it.  Super easy.

I hope you will join over the next two weeks at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  We would love for you to celebrate the holidays with us!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Great page, Krystal. Your nieces and nephews are adorable! And it's good to know that the MDS elements work well in other programs - cool.

This is so funny. My name is Krystal too. I like to go by Krys though...no one can ever spell it right.

What a beautiful page! And I think God gave her two sets of twins so she wouldn't have to endure four pregnancies. :)
