Hannah's First Year- MDS Blog Hop

Welcome to the MDS Blog Hop!  This week we are showcasing print products that we have had printed or want to with the new printer.


I have been working on my daughters first year album for probably about 2 years page by page and I finally got it done and printed!  I was so happy when it showed up at my door and to be holding the hard copy of it in my hands!  So here are a few pictures of a hardcover 12" x 12" album printed using the new print company through Stampin' Up! (Please excuse the PINK table used to take pictures of the album on...)


Front cover of the album with a nice shiny finish

Colors are bright and true to Stampin' Up! colors

High quality paper, ink and printer make the embellishments look "real"
Pages printed all the way to the edge and book lays flat

Spine stitched together
Back cover of the album with a small bar code printed directly on the album, not a huge deal to me
 
I am very happy with the printed album I got!  I am sure in the years to come we will look at this album to remember Hannah when she was little and all the memories we have.

Ok, on to the next blog on the hop Wendy!

Cousins Meeting- MDS Blog Hop

Welcome to the MDS Blog Hop!  We are back and showcasing the Stampin' Up!'s weekly deals again!!  This week the Playful Polka Dots kit is on special for only $5.97!!  It is a super kit you can use for a variety of uses.


 

Here is my page:


I didn't use a lot of embellishments on my page as I wanted to keep it simple and clean.  And I wanted to showcase a page using this bright kit that is not so bright and flowery as the kit seems to be when you first see it.

Ok, to the next blog, the talented...Wendy!

It came together so quickly, because the kit comes with some awesome DSP, that lends itself to a quick layout like this!  I added a few embellishments, flowers and some journaling and I was done!

I have been trying to get my daughters first year album done for a long time, but since SU! is offering discounted printing through their brand new print service, I want to bust out the last few pages I have to make in the album and get it printed!  So here is one of the pages I have been working on for it. 


Here she is at eleven months!  I saw a layout on Pinterest like this one that I liked, so I CASED it!

Yummy Cookbook- MDS Blog Hop

Welcome to the MDS Blog Hop!  This is our second hop of the month and so we are showing you things we have been working on! Don't forget to stop by our Pinterest page with all of our projects pinned!


This is a project I made just before the end of May, when we could still order boardbooks through SU!  I still wanted to share the project with you, because I think it came out so cute!  Here it is:







It is a cook book for my daughter to use in her play kitchen!  She LOVES playing and cooking in her kitchen, so I thought she needed a cookbook!  I had the thought of making her one using a boardbook from SU! for quite some time, but never got around to doing it, until I remembered they were not going to be available for much longer.  So one day (about 2 days before the deadline to order a boardbook...eeeek) I decided to get after it and make one!  I made up recipes, gathered ingredients, took pictures and then made the cookbook in MDS.  It came together so quickly and turned out so cute!

I realize you are unable to get boardbooks, but you could so easily do this this a traditional album too!  


Alright, lets see what Amber has been up to lately!

I was looking through Pinterest and found something cute and simple for fathers day, so I decided to CASE it and make it in MDS.  Here it is:



This could be a card front or it could be printed out and framed as well with a few embellishments.  This was a quick project, but I think very cute.

Ok, now lets hop on over to Amber's blog and see what she created for this week!

Printing Money- MDS Hop

Welcome to the MDS Blog Hop!  This is our second hop of May, so we are showing you projects we have been working on!  Don't forget to stop by our Pinterest page with all of our projects pinned!




My daughter recently got a play register and it came with coins and bills.  I knew the minute we bought it we would be needing more bills, because they were going to be stuffed in purses, pockets, crumpled up and hidden away anyplace she could put them.  And I was right!  A few days later, we only had a few bills left in the register drawer.  So I jumped on MDS and made my own bills for her!  Here they are:

Back

Front

  I had fun designing the bills. :)  I made ones, fives and tens.  



Now I am ready to be the "Mommy Bank" whenever she may need more bills!  It is awesome because I could make them the exact size she needs so they fit in her register perfectly!

Let's hop on over to Amber's blog to see what she has been up to lately!

Welcome to the MDS Blog Hop!  This is our first hop of May, so we have a theme....mothers!! Don't forget to stop by our Pinterest page with all of our projects pinned!






I decided to make a first mothers day card.  I think this would be a cute cad for a little boy to give his mom on her first mothers day.

The moon is from Nursery Necessities and the plane is from Sent with love.  I think the quote is so cute.  Simple, but cute!

Say What?- MDS Blog Hop

Welcome to the MDS Blog Hop!  This is our second hop of the month, so we are showing you what we have been working on! Don't forget to stop by our Pinterest page with all of our projects pinned!





Our daughter has been talking for a little while and she is starting to say some pretty cute and funny things!  So I decided to make a book in MDS so we could document them and look back at them someday!  I decided to go with a board book from SU! to be a little different and not just thin paper pages like a traditional album has.  Here are a few sample pages.

back and front cover




I used the Be Totally Awesome kit for the DSP and the Word Bubble punches for all the word bubbles.  I plan on using a permanent ink pen of some kind to record what she says.  I kept the layout simple, so her sayings would be the main focal point.  (I am not sure why the colors on the pages above look to be antiqued...in real life they are bright and vibrant.)

Let's hop on over to Aly's blog and see what she has created this week!

Quick Simple Page- MDS Blog Hop

Welcome to the MDS Blog Hop!  This is our second hop of the month, so we are showing you things we have been working on! Don't forget to stop by our Pinterest page with all of our projects pinned!





So this page was super easy....I used a template that SU! already has designed and I didn't even change anything on it!  It was a quick way to scrapbook a few recent pictures my husband has taken our our daughter.


This page just goes to show that you do not have to have all the time in the world to scrapbook family memories and photos! 

Now, lets see what Aly has been up to!

Hand Cut Onesie- MDS Blog Hop

Welcome to the MDS Blog Hop!  This is our first hop of the month, so we have a theme!  We decided to show you what kind of projects you can do using MDS and an eCutter and/or hybrid style.  Don't forget to stop by our Pinterest page with all of our projects pinned!



So here is what I made:



A card for my cousin and their new baby!  I designed the onesies in MDS using a stamp for the onesie and then I added an overlay over the top of each of them to give them all a little different print and texture.  Then, if I had an eCutter, I would have sent it to the eCutter and had it print and cut it out, but I don't, so, I printed them out and cut them by hand out.  I sponged the edges once I was done cutting to soften the edges just a bit.  I also did the custom greeting in MDS as well.  I added a few dimentionals, buttons and twine and my hybrid card was done! 

  
Here you can see the detail of the overlays a little better.

This was a fun card to create, even though I had to cut the onesies out by hand :)!

Now, lets see what Aly made!
