Great Gifts using My Digital Studio

The more I play with My Digital Studio, the more I love it. Stampin’ Up! has created some amazing templates that make wonderful gifts or projects to keep for yourself.

The software comes programmed to create several sizes of scrapbook pages, but it also creates cards and calendars and these neat little swatchbooks. They are great to create a mini photo album for a specific event or as a brag book for grandparents, but there are other uses as well!

Rivet Swatch book

This is one I am working on for Aubrey. It is an ABC picture book. Each swatch book has 13 double sided pages, so it is perfect for an alphabet book.

Here are some other great ideas for gifts using the My digital Studio software. You can print these from your own computer or use our professional print services for gorgeous results.

I love these swatchbook templates for creating a wonderful Valentine gift or a coupon booklet.

How about a journal for keeping track of precious memories, stories and milestones?

I LOVE this gorgeous recipe book! What a fabulous way to compile all of those family recipes into a gift!

Thanks for stopping by!



Gift Card or Money Holder

Greeting Card Kids


Can you tell which are my favorite toys to play with this season? Greeting Card Kids, the Northern Flurries embossing folder, and the colors blue and red. I can’t stop myself!


This is a gift so many of us give during the holidays and there are so many different ways to present them. I wanted to incorporate a gift card or money holder into a card. I also wanted to make one that would be very quick to mass produce if necessary, which always brings the Big Shot to mind for me. This is what I came up with.


The image was the only thing that was a little time consuming on this card, but it really didn’t take that long. I used my quick watercolor technique. My New Year’s resolution is to learn how to use my new camera and all the technology to edit and upload videos, so hopefully that will happen in the first week or so of January! I think I’ll make that technique the first video. It is really simple and just uses the markers and aqua painter.


Greeting card kids


I spritzed the card using the Silver Foil Smooch Spritz. I love the overall shimmery look it creates on the card stock. Very pretty. I can never do justice to the shimmer or bling in my photo’s.


Gift card


I decided that our scallop envelope would be the perfect gift card or money holder. So easy! I created the little pocket and then attached a piece of lace to the back of the envelope with glue dots. Then I just laid the card in the envelope and tied it into place. The sentiment looks crooked in this photo, but really the envelope is placed on a slant on the inside of the card.
