I love music! It's true! I have some of my current (and not so current) favorite songs on my blog! If you'd rather not hear any music, thats ok, i'm not mad at ya. Scroll down to the bottom to turn it off. Have a wonderful day!
It's the first of the month! That means all the new products are LIVE for My Time Made Easy!
Every 1st of the month, the MTME design team shows off cards! You've seen some templates the days before and after, so on the 1st, we all go in together to show off some super fun things you can make for cards with MTME products.
Well, i decided to go DIGI for this month! Did you know that Lauren offers many many of the MTME acrylic stamp sets also in a digi format?! Some people think of digi stamps as just the lineart images, etc. Well, I wanted to show you why digi stamps can be so cool! Especially in the case of these images, when changing the sizes can make a big difference and make the set extremely versatile!
Now don't get me wrong, i love actual stamps! And the stamps Lauren has are perfect for their intended uses... BUT since the images are smaller for use of tags and labels on templates and given the fact that i'm a teensy obsessed with coloring, sometimes i like to take a digi image and make it MUCH bigger! And these digi sets are perfect for this!
The sentiment is a modified sentiment fromt he digi set. Again, digis are so easy to do what you need to! If i was stamping, i would have had to mask out the word berry and then fill in with the word cherry (which is a single stamp, so it wouldnt have been too tricky) but for this, i just erased the word berry, and then dragged the word Cherry in it's place!
Ok, one last card for you!
Again, i enlarged the apple image, but then i decided that i also loved that inside the apple part. If i was stamping, i would have just stamped it inside and it would have been super easy. But this time, i just enlarged it as well and dragged it in to the center of the apple. Also super easy!
Again, i colored in the leaf of the apple, but i wouldnt have to. I tried it both ways, and they both looked fine. :D
Now can you imagine how much fun you could have enlarging all those fruits! If you love to color like i do, thats a lot of fun coloring space! OR, you could enlarge them, but print them over patterned paper like a paper piecing! Or use some of the fabuloous coordinating digi papers available this month. You could make nice large fruit labels for your jars! You could really theme a teapot for a friend who also decorates her kitchen with apples. You could even make your own digi paper! Digi stamps can be oh so much fun!
Ok, so enough about digi stamps. You want to see some more fun stuff you can do with the June Release from MTME? Check out THESE fabulous ladies!
I'm a mama to 2 awesome little dudes, Jack (6) and Gabe (3) and a wife to a wonderful man. My life is very full and I am richly blessed! I have been a professional makeup artist for a over a decade (holy crap!) but I just LOVE to stamp and scrapbook! So in February of 2009 I started my own stamp company called, what else but... Paper Makeup Stamps! I truly love everything that I do! In 2010 I started to also do a bit of photography and by the end of 2011 I was so blessed and busy with makeup and photo work, that PMS had to turn into a digi based stamp company and I had to resign from the design teams I felt so lucky to be on but I had to refocus my extra time on family. My postings on my blog may not be as frequent as they once were, but I'm still honored that you've decided to peek in!
