My Digital Studio and Mr. V

More new posts, scroll down to view them.

Mr. V is the class pet in  my son's Kindergarten room.  He is a sweet little Guinea Pig and his teacher asks the kids take Mr. V home on the weekends.  This is the 2nd weekend in a row that we have had Mr. V as a guest in our house.  I took some pictures of my son and Mr. V and used the NEW My Digital Studio to create this page.

JustisMrV

Wondering how Mr. V got his name....  When he was first born, it was thought that he was a she and she was named Violet.  When Mrs. Evers realized she was a he, she changed the name to Mr. V. got it?  LOL

Last Glittered Project

Here is the final project that I made with the glittered piece shown in my latest video (you can click HERE to view it).

I decided to put this on a Fancy Favor box and add some caramels to it.

Christmas and the Fancy Favor Box

Fancyfavorshimmer
 
Here are a couple of projects I made and they are based on projects I have seen online.   They both use the Fancy Favor box die and the Big Shot.  The card edge and the edge of my Christmas Cocoa DSP were run through in the center panel of the die to mimic the top edge of the box.

Here is a close up of the card.  I added the Champagne Shimmer Paint to the bottom edge of the card.  I also used the Shimmer Paint on the greeting.  I first inked it up in Soft Suede ink and then used a sponge dauber to add the shimmer paint to it before I stamped in on the card stock.

Close up of the stamped image on the box.  It is hard to capture the awesome shimmer of this paint on film.

One Eyed Monsters!

See my Santa version HERE

Aren't these the stinkin' cutest things you have seen!!!!  I used my Scallop Circle Punch for the bodies.  I have a Dove chocolate in between my medallions but you could also use a Peppermint Patty. 

Monstertreat 

What you need to make these:
Scallop Circle Punch
Word Window Punch
3/4 Circle Punch
1/2 Circle Punch
White Gel Pen
  
Create two Medallions with your Scallop Circle Punch for the body, I created a tutorial a  for making medallions a while back and you can find it HERE.  Punch a 3/4" circle from white and one that is the same color as your medallions, cut the colored one in half.  Punch a 1/2 circle out of Basic Black and use your White Gel Pen to add the accent. Punch two legs with the Word Window in your color and one in Black.  Fold the black one in half and cut off the fold to make two shoes.  Add the XX accents with your White Gel Pen.  For the mouth, I used another 3/4" circle punch as a guide and drew a half circle around the bottom half of the circle.
 
Thanks to Carol, Jen and Penny!
