Technical Tuesday!

Hey there!  Gosh - after a crazy, but fun filled, weekend, I've got a lot of catching up to do around here!

This week I've had a little bit of fun with My Digital Studio and created something to frame.  However, I've been having so much trouble with my printer....it may take me a while to get it to print!  I could send it off to Stampin' Up! to be printed, but I want it NOW, and my printer does a dang good job of printing (when it works!).  So.  Hopefully, I can get this printed and framed and then I'll show you a finished product.

In the meantime....I wanted these snowmen to hold something in their hands - and this string of Christmas lights was perfect.  Except - it was in a straight line.  But with the mds2 version, you can crop embellishments, and that's just what I did!  In fact, I cropped it into 4 different sections and then strung it all back together.  It was a bit tricky, but nothing over the top difficult.

Here's a video tutorial from Stampin' Up! on how to do this:

Did you know that Stampin' Up! has weekly challenges with My Digital Studio?  You can win free downloads - but you can't win if you don't play along!  You can find find the information HERE.  Then be sure to upload your project and tag it with Holiday Project.
