Wallace Falls - SC85



I decided to work on a sketch challenge from the Stampin' Celebration blog (SC85).  You may view the challenge and all the entries related to this challenge here: http://stampincelebrationblog.blogspot.com/2014/08/sc85-sketch-by-anita.html

I had a lot of fun with this sketch, and I will definitely use this page for our 2015 calendar (places we've been to in 2014)! Thanks Anita at Stampin' Celebration for your inspirational sketch!

I did NOT have Island Indigo Dotted paper, so I created my own within MDS -- using Soft Sky for my Dots on top of Island Indigo background.  I saved that image (.jpg file) to my computer as a DSP paper within the MDS software.  I was then able to choose this Dotted Island Indigo paper for my Flag Punch on my page. How cool is that -- creating your own DSP!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Brush Sets - Dots, Dots, Dots (Soft Sky); Decorative Overlays (woodgrain - Early Espresso)
Background - Textured Cardstock (Early Espresso)
Punch - Flag (filled w/Playful Patterns DSP - Pear Pizzazz and Island Indigo; Pear Pizzazz Small Dots DSP; Island Indigo Small Dots DSP -- created by me); Square (filled w/ Crumb Cake)
Embellishments - Twitterpated (button - Island Indigo); Staples and Stitching (zigzag - Chocolate Chip)
Font - Banner (Early Espresso)

  3. That is very cool. I wish I knew how to fully use MDS. Your layout is adorable! I like the idea of making a yearly calendar marking the special events of the year before. :) Thank you for joining us at Stampin' Celebration.

    1. Hi Heather.... thanks so much for your comment. I, too, was a bit intimidated learning MDS.....BUT... the more you play with it (and look and learn with the videos in the training section on MDS.net)....the more fun you will have with it. =)
