MDS Blog Hop- Work in Progress!

Kimberly Van Diepen, Stampin' Up!

 

Happy Wednesday!  How sweet it is as we make it half way through the week.  

Of course I would like to put my hand out and scream… STOP! Time is ticking a little too fast for me.  SERIOUSLY!

I have many works in progress right now.  Many of them are not even the creative kind unless you call packing and purging the stamp room creative?!  I do believe it takes some creativity when packing up a big crafty room.  

 

Now onto to the Blog Hop.  Sadly, this will be my last blog hop with these creative artists.  I'm rearranging my schedule to allow time to create & inspire, move and be a happy wifey and mama to the littles.  That right there spells B-U-S-Y! 

My layout above makes me SMILE so big.  Brandon had a fantastic first year in Middle school.  Can I tell you this is HUGE?

You know this sweet boy has struggled in the past.  Not this year.  He ROCKED it.  This meant I needed to capture this great memory and keep it alive with digital scrapbooking!  

You can see all the digital downloads I used for this layout HERE.  

Yesterday Stampin' Up! released new Digital Downloads and a FREE digital wallpaper.  In fact, there are SIX new downloads. WHOA Nelly!

Spring is Really Here!

Kimberly Van Diepen, Stampin' Up!

Kimberly Van Diepen Stampin' Up!

 

I really think Spring is FINALLY here.  I frantically went through my shoes today to find my FAVORITE flip flops.  Although my feet look awful and sickly pale I didn't care.  I was letting these feet of mine breath.  They have been stuck in either my UGG's or Tennis Shoes the entire Winter.  VA is actually going to reach the 70's.  WHOA! 

I love the picture of my daffodils because #1 they are alive.  How this silly plant has survived this year is beyond me.  With our whacko weather it's been snowed on in FULL bloom and even hailed on.  It's crazy but they are so beautiful and bright. 

Do you have a favorite Spring plant? Honestly, my favorite are the ones that come back.  Ha! Low maintenance for a high maintenance kind of girl! 

 

My layout today uses one of my favorite downloads- Spring Break ll.  The Designer Paper is beautiful as well as the stamps and embellishments.  

Watch the video to see how I created the overlay over the photo on this layout.

This is the Spring Break ll Digital Kit below.

Look at the beautiful polka dots in the DSP. Even better are the stamp brushes.  *love*

 

Okay, time to hop along and see what the other great gals are up to.

MDS Blog Hop-Feel the Love

 

Kimberly Van Diepen

Kimberly Van Diepen, Stampin' Up!

 

Love is in the air, can you feel it? Today our blog hop is all about LoVe! Sappy Happy LoVe!

Valentines is always a tricky Holiday for me.  I *LoVe* it so much but I think it should be celebrated everyday.  

What a different world it would be if we learned to love each other more EVERYDAY instead of just one holiday, huh? 

This is how I feel about my layout above.  It's all about LoVe! EVERYDAY LoVe.  Just as the journaling says, "they feed deep within my soul daily. My Everything!"  Do you have someone that feeds your soul daily? Have you scrapbooked it? Keep the memories alive by starting today and keeping precious memories alive with My Digital Studio.   

You can see all the supplies for this layout HERE.  

Here is a quick video tip on creating your own small Chevron Brads on your digital layouts.

Now let's share the LoVe and see what the other great digital designers have to share.  

You won't be disappointed!

Time for the MDS Blog Hop!

It's time for another Blog Hop and this week's Hop is all about things we are currently working on.  This is perfect timing for me.  I'm sure you can guess what album I've started already??  After 48 hours in the great NYC with a darling 10 year old I could not wait to start this album.  I took 420 photos many of which are self portraits of the two of us and another 50% of the food we gobbled down.  It was the most amazing trip ever.  Russ and I have taken many awesome trips but this trip I was seeing through the eyes of a 10 year old GIRL.  It doesn't get any better.  I'm going to chit chat on Sunday more about our trip and funnies that happened along the way.  Be prepared, you may see a layout or two, or five of our trip.

I'm in love with the new Digital Kits Lemonade Stand (Sale-a-Bration) and the Nobody's Business kit.  WOW, WOW, WOW!!

Both kits combined are fantastic.  Each have their own flare and the artwork is perfection. 

In my book, they are two must have downloads.  

Let's take a look at what the other great designers have in store for you today.  

 

All New! MDS Blog Hop!

We're BACK!  Our Blog Hop took a little Holiday hiatus and now we are B-A-C-K! I hope you are as excited as I am.  

Our group of designers are the best of the best and the projects are always inspiring.  

Whether you like to digitally create or not, you will always find inspiring ideas from these ladies that you can incorporate in any type of project.

 What I love the most is being able to share with YOU.  

We've made some great changes to the hop for the new year.  You will see the MDS Hop every other Wednesday!  

Ready? Let's HOP!

Our theme this week is Snow!  

Sadly we have not seen much snow in Northern VA.  

In fact this year they said we should see more than normal but I haven't seen a drop yet!  I had to literally dig for this picture of Alexis in the snow.  WOW! I love how the Let it Snow kit just happened to match her hat perfectly.

This kit is FANTASTIC and perfect for the snow filled pictures you may have.  

Now see what all the other great ladies have up their sleeves.  



 

While you are reading this I'm on a jet plane headed to sunny Florida…Again! 

I'm excited to see many of my Stampin' Up! friends, learn new ideas and most of all be with others who share my same passion for creativity. 

Stampin' Up! ALWAYS goes the extra mile when we attend these events and I can't wait to see what they have in store for us.  

This year is EXTRA special!  It's the 25th year anniversary.  WOW!  While I've only been a part of it for 9.5 years, it's been the BEST 9.5 years ever. 

Thank you for being a part of my 9.5 years. 

I'll keep you posted on all the fun that's happening.  I'll share mostly on my Facebook Fan page and here.   

Have a FANTASTIC Day! 

XOXOXO
