I Get Super Excited When…

…everything I am working on comes together.  Do you? 


Let's face it.. As an avid paper crafter I have a lot of STUFF!!  What is SO fantastic is when all that STUFF comes together and makes a fun project.  

I spend much of my time using My Digital Studio for digital scrapbooking layouts. While it's SUPER fantastico for that, there are so many other great things you can do with it.  It's super fun to create hybrid cards.  See how I created this fun card below.

I started this card using Whisper White cardstock.  I used the For the Grad Trifold Template.  I created a blank canvas in My Digital Studio and applied the Congrats Grad to my canvas.  Once I had my size for the card I was creating I sent this to my home printer and printed on Whisper White cardstock.

To create the Grad cap I used the Embark Graduate Ensemble.  This kit includes 79 SVG Stamp Brushes which is perfect to import into your e-Cutter.  I exported the Grad Cap into my Silhouette Cameo and then changed the size to fit my card.  I had the Silhouette cut the cap onto Early Espresso cardstock.  Once that was cut I used two builder wheels (Travel Journal #126937 and Linked Lace -Retired) inked with Early Espresso to add a little texture to the cap.

Once all of my elements were created it was time to assemble the card.  Becasue both of my grads were girls I decided to add a tea doily to make it frilly.  I've also dusted one of my very neglected edgelits and put it to use.  


Overall, this card came together with a lot of love.  Many elements that I love all in one place.  That is paper SUCCESS!

  1. Love this (as usual) Kimberly !! I am a huge fan of your blog. I always am amazed by your MDS projects – I have never tried it !! I may only be in my 20s but I am not super computer savvy haha. Thanks for always inspiring !! Cheers !!

  2. Catherine, it’s not hard at all.  You don’t have to be computer savvy either.  It takes time to get use to the software but once you do, addiction sets in….   It’s really a user friendly program. XO
