White Christmas - My Digital Studio scrapbook pages

I created these quick 12 x 12 scrapbook pages with
My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up!    

My Digital Studio Supplies:

Whisper White, Old Olive and Real Red card stock

Snowflake punch

Silver Hodge Podge Hardware

Old Olive satin ribbon was an extra that I purchased. It comes with straight pieces of ribbon, a knot and a bow in several colors    item #121063     $3.95

The snowflakes are a sort of a stenciled look.  I was playing around with the software and decided I liked this look, which is really easy to do.

You simply add punches in the same color as your background card stock color then add a drop shadow. In this case, after much playing around, I decided to use 100% opacity and Medium blur with a Going Gray drop shadow. I also moved the shadow to be centered over the punch. Change the opacity to make it much lighter and the effect is almost like a dry embossed image. You can also change the colors of your drop shadow for interesting effects ! At one point I had Real Red drop shadows which looked nice, but I decided it was too much for this project.

The snowflake punch is one size, but it can easily be resized and turned.

Be sure to come back in a few days - I have three more My Digital Studio projects that I submitted to a contest I have been anxious to share with you. I never received a call to let me know that I won, so I can now share them with you. The winners of the contest will be announced on the Stampin' Up! web site January 4th. I can not wait to see all of the awesome entries customers and demonstrators submitted to this contest back in November ! I am hoping that their projects will inspire me to scrapbook more, putting the My Digital Studio program to more use.

Thanks for looking =)
