Mojo Monday 150

Wow! Where did the weekend go? I can't believe it's been almost a whole week since I've posted last... Sorry for that!  Life got crazy last week!!
Here's the Mojo Monday sketch challenge:
And here's my rendering of the sketch... I did it on MDS again, just because I'm really enjoying using the program! I hope you all enjoy and maybe even play along? 
Recipe for the card:
Base of card is night of navy card stock
Mat for art piece is Bashful Blue
Designer Series Paper is Pear Pizzazz stripes.
I used a scalloped square and stretched it to be a rectangle.
I used the set All Holidays with Very Vanilla "ink"
I also used the edges set to create the flourish on the bottom.

If you would like to purchase any of these products please feel free to contact me :)
Happy Monday everyone!

Another use for My Digital Studio!

So this morning I decided I wanted to make up some fliers to put around housing.  I originally started with Microsoft Word, and then had a light bulb moment! I should use MDS and create an original flyer that would catch people's attention! So that's what I did!! Here's my flyer :)
I created this with an 8.5x11 landscape scrapbook album page.
I'm excited to put these up and see if I get any new interest!

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my crafty blog!  I am very excited to share with you some of my ideas and different classes I am offering! I can't wait to show you some of my projects!  I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator living in Puerto Rico, hence the blog name Stamping on the Island :)

I am currently working a lot with My Digital Studio, its a great program! It allows you to create different projects digitally and then send them to the printers to receive some beautiful albums and other projects!  I am currently offering classes on the program starting in September. 

Here are some of the projects I've been working on thus far:
A birthday card I created and then had printed and sent to me
an 8.5x11 scrapbook page created in less than 10 minutes
A thank you card I created
a 12x12 album page created for my Puerto Rico Scrapbook
The cover of my Puerto Rico Scrapbook
an 8.5x11 page created in under 10 minutes
This is a screen shot of the program!
a 12x12 page I created. You can change the colors of your pictures with the program, this time I changed them to match the background paper and accentuate the larger picture.
A 12x12 page created with pictures from a formal we attended
I love My Digital Studio, it's been a great asset to me in my crafting.  What is great is that I could finish an album and chose to email it to family, a great option for anyone far from home!  Please comment and let me know what you think :)
