Welcome back to another sketch challenge!  This week we are back to a sketch, and it’s a different one, it’s all CIRCLES!  Check it out:

Poolside Fun-002

Don’t be scared off by all the elements I have on my page, yours can be as simple as using a grid of circles for a background, just make it your own.  I had my layout created first, and I made the sketch up from that, so my sketch looks pretty similar to my page, it’s just a guideline for you.  Have fun with it!

Here is the page I created the sketch from:

This week’s technique is so fun!  Put ONE photo across MULTIPLE photo boxes.  WHAT?  It’s really simpler than it looks!  Check out this video by Heather Summers:


Here is my page, one of my favourites that I’ve created in a long time:

Surf Groms-001

This photo was taken by the Surf Instructor and he had an amazing camera.  His wife burned some images on a disc and dropped it in for us, no extra charge!  They are awesome!

It’s sketch time!  Sketches seem to get the most traffic, so I’m hoping lots of you will play along this week.  This sketch was fun, adding a circle as part of the background.  Feel free to change out the embellishments as you choose, they don’t have to be flags and buttons, that’s just how I took the sketch apart.  In actuality, I had this layout completed first, and I made up the sketch from my already completed layout.  Is that cheating?  Oh well if it is, it’s my challenge!  Ha-ha!

Lego Time-002

This is the layout that I based the sketch on.  I turned my circle into a clock!  What will you come up with?

Hi MDS Fans!  This week, we are back with another Technique Challenge!  I want you to explore how to colour your stamps using the Colouring Tool, or “Stamp Image Colouring” Window.  It’s just like Using Markers on your stamp to make it multiple colours.  Check out this video by Holly Linford here to see how it’s done:

This is the layout that I did, using the Stamp Image Colouring tool.  Both the “Eleven” stamp and the “YOLO” stamp were coloured with two different colours to make them stand out a bit more.  While this page is not my normal “style” I did it with my “Tween” daughter in mind, she uses that saying, and she loved how it came out.

Brick Background-001

Feel free to play along, submit as many projects as you like.  This technique looks especially cool on Birthday cards, or cards like in Holly’s video.  Can you made a Rainbow coloured stamp?  Click on the froggie below to link your image or email it to me and I’ll upload it myself.

Hi There!  It’s time for another MDS Monday Challenge!  This time I’m going to focus on a technique.  I’m going to start off with some basic techniques so you can learn the program if you are new to it.  If you are not new to MDS, then all the better, you probably already know how to do this!  This week we are going to focus on CROPPING STAMPS.  Here is a video to show you exactly how to do this.

Now here is my layout that I’ve done with this technique:

Trash Pack Party-001

All of the “words” stamps were cropped as pieces of other stamps.  I only wanted select words that fit with the theme…I love being able to customise our stamps like this!

Hi There!  I’m back today with the second instalment of MDS Monday Challenges!  This week I’ve chosen a Colour Challenge, and had Madonna Dunn create a page for me as well.  Here are your colours this week:

MDS Monday Colour Challenge-001

This is the layout I did with these colours.  I must admit that I cheated a little….I already had this layout completed from a couple years ago, and I pulled the colours out of the completed page.  Hey, it’s my challenge, I can cheat if I wanna right?


Madonna did a Christmas Themed page with these non-traditional colours:

MDS Monday sketch 1-002

Fell free to jump in with a paper project on this challenge too, it’s a colour challenge after all, I don’t mind what medium you wish to create in!  Enter as many times as you like.  Links will close on Friday July 26th at 6pm.  Click on the little frog below to link up your project!
