July 2013: Best of Shelli, Settin' Sail Photopolmer, FREE Digital Wallpaper

stampinup, dostamping, dawn olchefske, Best of 25 Years

Every month during 2013, Stampin' Up! is combining some of our all-time-favorite stamps with a new, never-before-seen stamp to create a monthly “Best of” stamp set. 

Our July offering is...Best of Shelli.  Who better to pick a “Best of” stamp set than the person who helped start Stampin’ Up! out of her garage 25 years ago? Shelli Gardner, our CEO and Cofounder picked her favorite stamp images from the past 25 years and helped combine them into a single set just for you!

Even better, this set includes a never-before-seen flourish image, and the flower image coordinates perfectly with the 3/4” Circle Punch (119873).

Don’t forget to check out the sets from previous months as well, details found here. They’re available all year - shop the "Best of 25 Years"!

DOstamping Celebrates Day #4: Meet Our Sweet P's!

Now that we're close friends, I'd like to introduce you to Our Sweet P's, Max and Sam! 


Why are they called Sweet P's?  Because that's the title of our 2011 Calendar created with Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio.  FYI - their last name is Przezdziecki.  (Just try pronouncing that last name - I dare ya :).  It's much easier to say "Sweet P's.  Max is on the left and Sam is on the right - love those smiles.  I crack up every time I see this picture.

Some background:  Each year my daughter, Angie and I create 8 calendars for Christmas gifts.  We started doing them after Max was born.  He is now 4, so we'll be creating our 5th one this Nov/Dec.  The first two years they were all handmade.  Let me tell you - that's a lot of cardstock, adhesive and TIME!  We loved doing them!  But as life got busier, we were SO thankful that we could create them digitally.  As that tooks hours off the creation time.  We still get 8 copies printed through Stampin' Up! printing services.  Here's a couple months from this year's calendar:



What's so special about the way we do our calendar, is we leave a blank space for a photo.  Then each month, the boys (well, Angie) sends us a photo of themselves along with a cute little note.  That way the pictures are current, not ones from the previous year.  It's the gift that keeps on giving and everyone loves it! 



I thought sharing these calendar photos today would be a great way of introducing DOstamping Celebrates Day#4 Blog Candy

  • My Digital Studio: Max Turns 4!

    I've received several inquiries regarding Max's birthday party and how it went.  It went great!  Imagine 10 four year old boys and girls going bowling.  My daughter had adorable shirts made up for each of them with their own names embroidered.  They were divided into two teams, the Alleycats and the Pin Busters.  How cute! 

    We had a hard time taking pictures at the bowling alley as the lights were turned down.  About the only picture that turned out, was the one below of him blowing out his candles.  So I turned it into a digital scrapbook page using my Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio Software program

    It actually came together really quick, as I used one of the predesigned "Celebrations" 12 x 12 pages.  I only made a few changes to it and voila!


    Note:  Selected My Digital Studio Downloads and Printed Products are on sale the month of May 2011.  Check out the Stampin' Up! National Scrapbooking Sale.

    Here are some pictures of our grandsons Max and Sam from Easter.


    Sammy turning on the charm at Easter brunch!


    They stayed with us this past weekend.  How cute are they?  They are getting so big!

    MDS Celebrations Invite, Candy and Cake Decor

    Blog Tour Pic

    Welcome to the Control Freaks February 2010 Tour.  We are thrilled to have you join us today. I'm your 8th stop this month.  Our tour is nice and short, and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers.  In fact, if you started in the middle of the tour, you may have just come from my friend Gretchen Barron's blog - welcome! 

    Our theme for this month is:  It's My Party!

    Well - it's not my party, but it will be Max's party in a couple of months.  If you're a follower of mine, you know who Max is.  He's my grandson and he'll be turning FOUR in two months.  Wow - I can't believe he'll be four.  Seems like yesterday he was just a baby.  But I digress.

    To get ready for his upcoming birthday, I've make a My Digital Studio Hybrid (both digital and real-life) invitation and other matching items with Stampin' Up!'s Birthday Bash Suite Products.  Which include the stamp set "Party this Way" (#118744), Celebrations Designer Series Paper (#117164) and Celebrations Digital Kit (#123728) from My Digital Studio!!!    

    Here are the components I created using My Digital Studio:

    Max Turns 4-003 

    Side note:  I felt like I was channeling Patty Bennett when I was working on the above My Digital Studio components - he he!!

    Here's the invite:


    Now, it's cute just like this,'s even cuter made into an easel card!!


    How fun is that?  I love the "word play" on his name.  That was my husband's contribution to the card.  Oh - forgot to mention - the actual invitation slips out.  Just pull on the Round Tab at the top.

    Here's the candy and cake decorations...



    The cupcake markers were punched out with a 1-3/4" Circle Punch.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to attached them to a toothpick.

    Do you think he'll like it?  More you think his mom (my daughter Angie) will like it?

    Controlfreak Tour: Oh Sew Suite for My Digital Studio

    Blog Tour Pic

    Welcome to the Control Freaks December 2010 Tour.  We are thrilled to have you join us today. I'm your first stop this month and am excited to kick things off!  Our tour is nice and short, and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers.  In fact, if you started in the middle of the tour, you may have just come from Lisa Young's blog - welcome! 

    This month's theme is Stampin' Up! 2011 Mini Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs Sneak Peak.

    I'm so excited that Stampin' Up! is releasing 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog My Digital Studio downloads!  Wow - that's a mouthful to say. There will be several to choose from and I chose to use the Sweet Stitches Designer Series Paper download for my tour projects this month.  Let's get started...

    First up is my Thanks Sew Much Card
    That's "custom-made" Designer Series Paper you see in the background of my card - from My Digital Studio.  The "paper" is a combination of two of the new Sweet Stiches digital patterns and I added NINE Melon Mambo brads to it.  I would never do that IRL - but when you're crafting digitally, you can throw everything and the kitchen sink at it!!! 

    My card is actually a hybrid, as I added "real-life" stamping and embellishments afterwards.  The sewing maching image is from a new stamp set called Sew Suite and is stamped in Melon Mambo on So Saffron.   



    The button brad is from our new Sweet Stitches Fabric Designer Brads pack (includes four of six designs) - SEW CUTE!!!

    Speaking of Buttons and freakin' cute are these Button Jars?  I'm just giddy over them!  Wouldn't they look cute sitting on your crafting table?  



    The "labels" on both of these jars were printed using my printer and My Digital Studio.  They came from one of the patterns of the Sweet Stitches download, which has lots of "button" labels to choose from.  However, to fit on my jars, I needed to size them a bit smaller.  A great feature of digital crafting. 

    I finished them off with our new Pom Pom Trim at the top and viola - FREAKIN' ADORABLE!


    Well, that wraps up this stop of the tour.  I hope you enjoyed it.  Now on to more sneak peaks from my wonderfully talented friend, Gretchen Barron.
