So Long Farwell

Thanks to all who have joined us in playing with the DigiChallenges!  We are saying so long, farewell to them for now – we haven’t had many participants sadly.

A big thank you to all who have followed my blog and leave me sweet comments along the way.  I’m not sure how much you’ll see from me here going forward.

If you want to see our past winners in the DigiChallenges, you can find them on Nicole Watt’s Pinterest Winner’s Board, and all the challenges are on the Pixel Maven’s DigiChallenge Board on Pinterest as well.

For now … so long, farewell.

You can find me and my photography here.

Project Life inspiration


Had SO much fun playing with this layout – I set it up to look similar to one that would be used for Project Life.

Yesterday, I downloaded a bunch of freebies from Digital Project Life and quickly got to work using My Digital Studio.  So fun & easy!!  

This page uses the Free Project Life Starter Pack, Cherry Edition.


Thanks for letting me share my creativity with you!

2013 Holiday Catalog is LIVE!

Follow Me on Pinterest


Products come to life in the holiday catalog, thanks to a fun interactive app.

To get started:

  1. Download and install the FREE Layar app to your smartphone or tablet.
  2. Scan images that are tagged with the Stampin’ Up! Interactive icon to unlock videos.

Supported devices:

  • iPhone 3GS and higher and iPad 2 and higher; requires iOS 5.1 or higher
  • Android devices running v2.2 or later

Things to know:

  • Different mobile devices will work differently with the Layar app. Some are faster than others, some will take more steps to load the videos, etc.
  • You need to hold your mobile device far enough from the page that the image is completely in the device’s screen before the video will load.
  • Hold your device over the page until the video loads. Be patient-the video might take a while to load, depending on your device.
  • Most devices will start playing a video automatically, but some will have a play icon that you need to tap to start the video. And some won’t show a play icon but will still require you to tap the screen on your device to start the video. So if a video doesn’t start playing automatically, tap the play icon or screen of your device. (If you’re using a Samsung Galaxy phone, you’ll need to tap the box that appears on the screen to start the video.)
  • If you don’t want to hold your device over the page for the duration of the video, just tap the video and then pull it away from the page-the video will keep playing.
  • From the video, you can go directly to the online store to buy a product immediately, and you can also share your favorite products on social media. (The Share button currently doesn’t work with iPhones and iPads.)
