About to Blossom

Every Tuesday Stampin' Up! releases new downloads for My Digital Studio.  It's exciting to have such fresh and fun content always within in reach and always on trend!
Last week I fell head over heels for the latest Digital Kit:  About to Blossom

About To Blossom August Kit -- Digital Download 

I'm nuts about Digital Kits in general, too.  They have SO much content for a great price.  They are a fantastic way to build your MDS creative arsenal quickly and inexpensively.

Now, I have loads of ideas for digital projects with this kit, but I also am so crazy about the beautiful Designer Series Paper that I had to print it out and use in a "hands-on" kind of way.

Here's my quick advice on printing MDS designer series paper:
  • Select an 8.5 x 11 project
  • Use a square punch and resize it to cover half of your page
  • Do this again for the lower half of your page
  • Fill the top and bottom punches with the DSP of your desire and then zoom in or out to get the size of the design right for your project
  • My best results printing have come from Matte Finished Photo Paper.  Paper that is not "photo paper" does not, in my experience, produce good results
  • Now you have two 5.5 x 8.5 sheets of DSP to play with
  • Print more as needed!
