Another great thing about MDS...

..I can do a whole scrapbook page while my fingernails are wet...ha!

So I painted my nails tonight, after our Twilight party and I had them painted black I kinda liked the look of them painted. I used to have them painted all the time.  I know Jeff likes my nails with polish on them, but I am so anal that I like them all even and well I am not going back to acrylic so my own have to do.  So I have been trying to keep them looking nice, and have been polishing them.  I have to be careful cause sometimes the polish will come off on the card I am stamping...not so good..."yeah that is umm..a new Stampin' Up! In Color for today called Beary Blast"...ha!!

So anyway, after doing my nails, they are a blood red...insert spooky music.  I still wanted to work up something for my blog post, and I thought hey I can make a scrapbook page while my nails dry.  What? How can you do that?  Well with Stampin' Up!'s new My Digital Studio that's how.

So this is the page I came up with.  I am feeling a little lonely for my BFF, we are at 3 months of not seeing each other, and that is a long time, we talk all the time but it isn't the same.  So I looked on my computer for some pictures of us, and whipped up a page.  I just used one of the templates and only altered it slightly so it made it super easy to do...and no nail smudges either...yeah!

How do you like it?

I still have to play around with it, but it sure is fun.  I have been watching the webinars that Stampin' Up! has for us Demonstrators, so that we can turn around and teach you.  Tonight I was watching one and Eric came out, as I sat in front of the computer, and you could hear Mark (he is the teacher) talking and the mouse is moving and doing things on the screen and I am just sitting here listening, and Eric is looking at me and he sees I am not touching the mouse, and I told him "I am in school" he just laughed.

Here's a short video about MDS...

Make sure to check back tomorrow I have some awesome blog candy to celebrate my over 625K hits!!

Have a super Wednesday and thanks for stopping in!

Striped Grosgrain Ribbon "Color Change" Tutorial

This will be a quick post today.  A few of you commented on the striped ribbon and how cool it looked turned "Pixie Pink". So off to my tri-pod I skipped to make up this quick video. In fact I did it so quickly, that if you listen carefully, I never gave my phone (that I took off the hook) time enough to stop beeping...I didn't hear it till I watched the video, and I figured it was not that big of a deal so I did not re-do it...sorry if you can hear it.   Next time though, I will make sure to listen to the phone first...ha!

Anyway here goes:

Here's the post with the original card with the Pixie Pink ribbon.

Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.
