Caramel Apple Card -FREE Template

I was asked to come up with a template for a Caramel Apple Card, so here it is! I really had a lot of fun with this!

I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the main card and sponged the edges. I used More Mustard for the caramel part and sponged with More Mustard ink. The center is Very Vanilla and the stick is So Saffron (5" x 5/8" strip with top edges rounded) and they are both sponged with More Mustard very lightly on the edges. I used the Chocolate chip marker to draw the seeds in the center and put Crystal Effects over them. I used the white gel pen for highlights on the front. I glued the top of the caramel onto the apple card base but I used Dimensionals for the bottom to make the drips pop out.

To get the FREE Template

I am using a new site to download things from, so let me know how you like it! I think you should be able to get it from this site without signing in like the last site I was using.

Tires & Treads FREE MDS Punches

I have been having so much fun converting the stamps from My Digital Studio into punches that I decided to try and make some of my own punches! I just used clip art from the Internet and made them into punches! These five images below I am calling Tires & Treads. You can see the page I made with them above!
Use link below to download the SVG. files.

tire tread small - tire tread small2

The link below should let you download the punches in the right format for MDS punches. Copy these files to your desktop first. Then you have to copy and paste them into your punches folder. If you copy them directly into your punches folder for some reason they will not work.
These type of files also work with the Cricut!

This is my trial to share these punch files, so if this works I can share more! Let me know what you think! This is also the first time I have used Mediafire so let me know how that works to download from.

12"x12" Mini Book

I got this book idea from a mini book that they made on the Alaska cruise (I think) that a fellow demo showed me. I made this in a class with my my kids and nieces and they all loved doing them! They are aged 4-10 and then 4 adults also. It was easy enough for everyone! I thought this would make the cutest little scrapbook or just a little book to draw in.
The directions to make it are below!

For the pages of the book you need one sheet of 12" x 12" cardstock. You are going to score it in one directions at 2", 6" and 10". Score in the other direction at 3", 6" and 9". Then you are going to cut along the red line I have shown going through the center of three of the sections.

Now you are going to fold up the two inch sections all the way across. These are the pockets that will hold the removable pages.

Now fold in half on the center score. You can accordion fold the end strips to make the pages.

Fold these on both sides. This will give you all of your pages. You are going to tape the backs of the pages together where the three red arrows are shown pointing.

Now all of your pages are together and you are ready to decorate. This is all from just one sheet of 12" x 12" paper!

You will need a 4"x4" piece of DSP to tape to the back of the end pages to make the front and back cover. The insert pages are 3-3/4" x 2-1/2". You need 8 of them. The belly band is 1" x 8-1/2".

Then just decorate however you would like and you are finished! I used The Open Sea stamp set from the Summer Mini catalog with matching DSP.

More MDS Stamps to Punches

Here is my My Digital Studio page of my kids and nephews hiking this summer. I changed the Holly Jolly tree stamp to a punch so I could fill it with DSP instead of just a color. You can get the directions for how to do this HERE.
I have been having so much fun with this program and figuring it out!
