One of my new favorite techniques in MDS right now is to find a card from an old catalog and copy it using My Digital Studio! For this card project, I used a sample from the 2009-2010 Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalog and made it my own. In addition, you’ll see me use the re-coloring tool in MDS… very fun!
Stampin' Up! catalogs are a great way to find ideas for new handmade cards, scrapbook pages or other projects. I love to use my catalogs to get new ideas, and change them up (a little or a lot) to suit my supplies and my taste.
A few months ago, I used this scrapbook page from page 28 in the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.
And I turned it in to my version, which is larger (because I usually scrapbook in 12×12 rather than 8×8) and obviously used a different background color. And as you can see, I still need to pick the perfect photos to place on MY page!
I did use the same stamp set called Day of Gratitude (121148 CM, 120835 W) and the same alphabet, Simple Letters Alpha (115960) with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (113439).
So, you can see how I took the original idea and made some changes to it to reach a totally new result.
I've chosen the name Mirror Image Crafts for my business and website for a reason! I am an identical twin, and share an extremely close bond with my sister. We both really love to paper craft, so it seemed a fitting name for my site.
