My Digital Studio Scrap Map 1 Challenge

The above two pages were created with My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up!

I've not been to the My Digital Studio web site for a while so I decided to stop in to see if there was any announcement of MDS2 coming out on disc soon. Instead, I was excited to see that there is going to be a weekly challenge ! Although late, I created a slightly altered Scrap Map 1 challenge entry: it is a two page spread.

Anything But A Card Challenge blog Texture - not sure if it truly qualifies for this challenge since they are digital items ;)


My Digital Studio original version software from Stampin' Up!
Basic Gray textured card stock background
Kiwi Kiss - mat behind photo boxes
Rich Razzleberry - card stock to fill scalloped square punch
Tempting Turquoise - card stock to fill scallop square punch and dotted line designer paper to fill scallop border punch
Cute Cats stamp set
Man's Best Friend stamp set
Vintage Overlays texture stamp (but it doesn't show up in the saved jpg files on each page ? weird....)
Narrow polka dot grosgrain ribbon and knot - Rich Razzleberry
Crochet trim ribbon - Victoria
Round Buttons - some altered in size
Twine in center of buttons - my own creation 
Basic Black stitching
Scallop border punch - enlarged
Smitten and Simple Letters alphabet punches - altered in size, filled with polka dotted Kiwi Kiss Bella Rose designer paper. I noticed that drop shadows aren't on the letters..ugh
Scallop square punch - enlarged to make photo mats
Text box for the word "meet"
"bark bark" was created by stamping an image from Man's Best Friend stamp set then covering up portions of it with square punches, filled with Basic Gray textured card stock. Stamp again and enlarge then cover up unwanted portions once more. Reduce the opacity slightly more on the smaller "bark".

THANKS for looking and be sure to go check out all of the other fantastic creations shared at the challenge blogs mentioned above !
