I wanted to continue on my theme from yesterday and share with you the program I made for the Fire Auxiliary Luncheon/Fashion Show on May 4th. I got started making them when My Digital Studio was a part of the Stampin’ Up! family of tools. Do you remember My Digital Studio? Sadly, it was dropped several years ago. The company that created it is called My Memories. My Memories invited users of My Digital Studio to purchase My Memories for $19.95 and I did just that.
Because several groups I’m a member of in my community know my ‘skill’ at using the old My Digital Studio, I’ve become a go-to person for making tickets for various events and the program for the annual Fashion Show. Any Stampin’ Up! stamp sets that were a part of MDS (My Digital Studio) were carried over to MM (My Memories) which was very nice. Unfortunately, more current sets are not a part of that program so I had to scratch my head, searching for a way to make a Cinco de Mayo type, bright and flashy program.
I decided to use ticket type labels for the program cover. What you’re looking at is the front and back cover on one sheet. Then we printed the show details on the inside, using just one piece of heavier printer paper for each program.
The sombreros on each ‘ticket’ covered what looked like a metallic party hat. It was fun — and a challenge — making the individual elements do what I needed them to do!
So, do you remember My Digital Studio? What do you think about this throwback? I really wanted to use the Birthday Fiesta stamp set and considered using that set with the new Stamparatus! But, alas, I couldn’t find my stamp set and framelits and I didn’t have the other ones until two days before the event. Yes, I’ve been known to procrastinate but putting 120 programs off to the very last minute just wasn’t a good idea. Hence the retreat to My Memories. Coming soon will be some projects with the Stamparatus though. Soon she says. Soon…….
