I have been working on several My Digital Studio projects lately and I wanted to tell you about one of them today. I have had this idea for a really long time and finally started working on it about 2 weeks ago. I wanted to make myself a personalized planner – a calendar that I can carry around to my workshops, classes and events and use to keep track of all my Stampin’ Up! Business related things that I need to do.
I made a list of the different things that I keep track of each month (like points towards earning the incentive trip) – some are things that I am doing and others are things my team is doing. I wanted a calendar – and the calendar function in My Digital Studio is so great for making exactly the calendar that I need. Probably the hardest thing was deciding on a “theme” – a color palette, designer papers, embellishments – that sort of thing. Naturally the best place to start would be a kit – since it has all those elements in one package. Then the new catalog came out June 1st and in the hostess section there is a new My Digital Studio Disc – it’s called Keep in Touch – and I decided it would be perfect for this project.
Since the Stampin’ Up! year starts in July my planner is a July 2012 through June 2013 planner – that’s the great thing about My Digital Studio is I can create my project exactly the way I want it – I don’t have to have a calendar that is Jan-Dec – I can start and end with any month I want. So here is my July calendar page –
I included the 12 months – this is the right side page and the left page has different spaces for me to write notes – calls to make, things to follow up on, etc. The back page is an Annual Summary page. The front page include our Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart. Then I added a front cover and back cover. I sent it out to the Stampin’ Up! printer and hope to have it back in about a week. I printed it as a soft cover photo book so that I can carry it around and write in it. I’ll post again when I have the real thing so you can see what it looks like printed.
Stampin’ Up! has new downloads today – You can see all the available Digital Downloads on my website. There is a new photobook template, a digital version of the retired Take Three stamp set from a couple of years ago, the new Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper, and digital Washi Tape.
Have a great day and get creative!
