Mid-month Inspiration- Tyssyna!

Hi Everybody!

Very quick post for today... I have not been able to make even one single card this month!  But I have still been VERY BUSY with MDS and will have some layouts from that to show you over the next few days!  Here's one to get you started!

My sweet niece Tyssyna... she's a little firecracker!  This was a custom canvas (8.5" x 5.5") I created in MDS for a gift book I created for someone... can't say anything else on here.... until they get it!

And... don't you love her name?  This is a VERY old family name... five generations so far.  And in each generation there are many that have it or some variation of it.  I'll have to ask my Mom for the pictures of each generation that has passed it on, to post on here.  Love very old family pictures!

Anyway.... I am linking this up to Stampin' Celebration... it's the middle of the month, so it's time for a sketch to get your mojo flowing!  Check out the blog, create a project using our photo inspiration or the sketch... or both... and then link it up to earn a chance to be December's Pick of the Party!

Here's the sketch!

Don't forget to follow the blog hop on the Stampin' Celebration site to check out what all the other design team members have created to inspire you!

Thanks for looking!  Now... get creating!

I'm Baaack...

... from Mexico that is!  Yes... I was relaxing on the warm sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera... taking tons and tons of pictures so that I can make lots of scrapbook layouts (using MDS of course!)  So, I'm back, but that's about it.... no cards or creative-ness yet!  

I'll get settled and answer ALL the questions my kids are asking about... absolutely EVERYTHING!!!  It sounds like they had an absolutely fabulous time staying with Grandpa and Grandma... one big party by the sounds of things!  

So... hope to see you all soon with some creative goodness!

Thinking of You!

OK... I am down to the last of the cards I made using the Everyday Occasions Card Kit.  I hope you haven't been completely bored with this.  I'll be back to making cards and showing you them again within a couple days I hope!

Seeya later!  xo Anita

Love... in December!

I love December!  So today, we've got some 'Love' cards for you!

I love this stamp image... and will be using it for a whole lot more than just creating the cards in this kit!  It's so scroll-y (is that a word?) and pretty!  Very Love-ish!

Season's Greetings! SCIC73

Hello December!  Can you believe it?  December is a super busy month for our family.... we have a ton of birthdays, including mine and my husbands!  He is one week older than me, which he  LOVES to joke with me about, that he has one week more of authority over me!  Well... we'll just leave it at that!

Anyway... December 1 means a new post over at Stampin' Celebration using this beautiful inspiration photo!  This should get you in the mood for Christmas... and if it's too early for you to start thinking about that, then you can at least get in the 'season' mode!  Here ya are...

And for this month I made my girls' Christmas cards to give to teachers and friends.  I made it easy on myself and simply made them all exactly the same... just switching out pictures and words, depending on whose it was!  Check it out!


You can see that I used the colours to inspire me.  I managed to get a Christmas tree in there, and really wanted to do something with the feathered woodcuts download... but it just wouldn't work, and you can't squeeze everything you love onto EVERY layout!  Let's see what you do with it though.... maybe you'll be inspired to make a card, or scrap layout, digi or traditional... it doesn't matter!  Let's
see what you've got up your sleeve!  

So... click on over to the Stampin' Celebration website and follow along on our blog hop to see what everyone else has created!  They're all so talented and creative!

Seeya later!  xo Anita
