Extra, extra….

A double-post Friday! K, I'll admit…I'm playing catch up for the days I missed this week.  I had so much I wanted to share but the week just flew by!  Here's a project I wanted to share on Tuesday back when the new downloads were released, I hope you enjoy it now!

Did you know that there is way more to My Digital Studio than the already abundant supply that is standard with the program?  Stampin Up! offers 'extras'  or 'downloads' pretty much every Tuesday!  I love Tuesdays for this reason! I can't wait to see what new downloads there are every week!  …and the prices are so great, that it's hard to resist.  A punch is only about $1.25! Don't you think that's an amazing value?!  I'm a sucker for a good deal and paper crafts so these two together work perfectly for me!  If you remember my 'I'm so lucky' page, that was created with a download, 'Love Letter'.  This weeks new downloads are listed below.  Keep a watch out for announcements of new downloads each Tuesday, I'll come back to share them with you!

Two of my favorite new downloads this week are the Nursery Alphabet Images and the Nursery Alphabet Letters.  I'll come back to THIS post later to share them with you. …still needing a little help with that!  The other new downloads are: Textured Cardstock Add-On, In color Add-on (ribbon), Sahara Sand DSP, Whisper White DSP and Ribbon of Hope Stamp Brush.

I have to admit I've owned My Digital Studio (MDS) for over a year but I really only started playing with it this January (I dabbled a bit before that) when I joined Heather Summers MDS club.  I am loving it!  This page was created by me using one of her templates/sketches.  I used a few downloads on this one and really like how it turned out.  Oh, how I miss those sweet little baby days…as much as I enjoy his cuteness now!  đŸ™‚

This page uses these downloads: Notable Desktop Calendar, Decorative Label Punch, Vintage Trinkets and Crochet Trim. 

The photos are not what I'm used to these days with our new camera.  These were with an old point and shoot camera and I've certainly become spoiled with a fancier camera than it was.  Maybe these photography lessons I'm taking will help me learn how to take advantage of all that my camera has to offer?!  …there's hope isn't there?! 

I have also  created a 'mirrored' page of 'now' and will share that soon as well.  Enjoy this one in the mean time!

What would you create a 'then and now' themed page of?  I'd love to do one of my family when we were kids (all of my brothers and I with our Mom and Dad) and one of the whole lot of us now, with our spouses and all of our kids! .. all 14 Grandchildren and one of them with their Grandma!  Can't wait to hear what you want to do a now and then of!

Enjoy your weekend, I hope it includes some crafting!

I love this picture–he so cute.
I think I'm going to have to learn how to use the Digital Studio as it seems you can do so many thngs.
I agree–I would love to do a  "then and now".  I have many pictures of my children and family that goes way back–even some that are in black and white and very old.  I would love to scrapbook them before they get damamged.  Great idea, Alanna

I agree I also need to learn how to use MDS, but I guess I need to purchase it first, lol. However when that happens I know who I am going to be looking at for help.
Great Layout, what a cutie.

My goodness….he is so cute!  Still is too:) 
I love your MDS pages….it makes me want to use my MDS more.  I have had it for about as long as you have  had yours……except that I probably don't have as many downloads.   I just couldn't seem to get into it….but your pages have inspired me!  I think that I will have to 'dust off' my MDS and try my hand at digital scrapbooking:)  Wish me luck!
