ESAD Unconvention Challenges - Thursday Scrapbooking

So you all know that I'm disappointed I wasn't able to attend Convention again this year - being in Brisbane is even sadder as no plane fares, accommodation, etc to be paid for.  But I am however happy that I am involved with the ESAD Unconvention group and we have sooooo many challenges going on that we are having our own little party and excitement.

I organised the swaps and will show them to you once they have all been posted out - hopefully by next weekend. I can show you the gift I made for the ladies who signed up and swapped - just love it! even have a couple spare!

I have managed to do 5 challenges so far.....LOL, I think I have  9 more to get to before it all ends on Sunday night!

Here is the Thursday Scrapbook Challenge I finished today (luckily we had till today to complete it!)
The requirements for this was 4-3-2-1.

Theme is WATER, with 4 photo's, 3 colours, 2 embellishments and 1 DSP


I did mine on MSD - Just LOVE this program and oh so easy to use!!!!!!

I used the This and That content - I have 4 photo's which cover the water theme, 3 colours Calypso Coral, Raspberry Ripple and Lucky Limeade, 2 embellishments are the banner in top left and the statement in the middle, the matting is the DSP.

I love this and am getting it printed off next week - can't wait to see it printed!

MDS - Memory Keeper DVD

Laura had a Slumber Party to go to for her BFF's Birthday - we got her a gorgeous Owl necklace and needed to come up with some special packaging for it.

As I was in the middle of cleaning / clearing my craft room I came across a couple of Stampin' Up! DVD cases - love these for storage. So  I decided to have a go with my MDS software and create a special gift for her.

Here is the insert printed on a standard A4 Whisper White Cardstock before I cut it to fit.


And here it is inserted in the DVD case.


Love it!
I have used the Epic Day This and That papers, Creative Elements stamps and Daring Adventure stamps to create it. The font used on front and back is actually a Pokemon font given the girls are still into Pokemon.
Happy to report that Laura loved it, as did the birthday girl! and that made for a happy Mum!

Now I could have made this the traditional way by cutting into my new pack of DSP that I got with my This and That Journal Bundle, and I have both the stamp sets I used, but I thought I would see how I go with a digital version.
You could also make this as a Hybird version and stamp the flower and butterfly on cardstock as well and cut out and stick on the top for a 3d effect - that would look great too. So many ways for you to use MDS!

Now to stock up on my DVD cases as I have a feeling I may be making some more for Year 7 Graduation in a few months.
