I can’t believe it’s already December 1st! I’ve been preparing for a Stampin’ Up Open House this weekend. I created a card style invitation in My Digital Studio (MDS). I emailed my JPEG files to an office supply store and had my “cards” printed. Then I folded the cards, attached ribbon, and distributed almost 300 invitations in my neighborhood. I’ll display the invitation at the bottom of this post. If you’re in the area, I’d love for you to come.
I’ve also been working on a family calendar in MDS. My parents are older; they have lots of appointments, plus keeping track of their kids' and grandkids' activities. They live by their calendar. J Therefore, I thought a personalized calendar would be the perfect gift for my parents. I decided not to use the delivered “calendar” layout. My mom wants plenty of space to write everything on the calendar. So I made my own layout allotting as much space to each day as possible. Then I worked on a corresponding “family page” for each month. I thought it looked great on my computer.
Well, I just got my printed calendars (wow, that was quick turnaround!). I don’t have the words to describe how fabulous these look. As I said, an office supply store printed my Open House invitations, and I was very pleased with how great they looked. My calendars truly look like something you’d buy from Barnes and Noble except it's my family. Let’s just say, this will be a gift to make my mom cry – in a good way!
Here are a couple months from the calendar. (I’ll show more throughout the week.)
And here’s the invitation. The first picture is the front and back cover of the card. The second picture is the inside of the card, with all the details.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for stopping by!
