Today is the first day of school for about 200,000 children in the Houston Independent School District. Today is the first day in many years that I do not have a child starting school. It's funny how your life revolves around a school calendar for so many years and then all of a sudden you don't even know when school starts! But you can't help think about what a big day this is for SO many children, parents, teachers, administrators, bus drivers, etc. The first day my daughter went to kindergarten was probably the longest day of my life just wondering what she was doing every second (and yes, it was a full day of school!)
Don't you think it would put a smile on your child's face to find a little card or note from you in their lunchbox or backpack in these first few days of school…or even all year? An easy way to do that is with My Digital Studio, digital papercrafting software from Stampin' Up! Would you believe this First Day of School card started as a Christmas card in My Digital Studio?! It's always fun to start with a template and just change some or all of it according to your theme.
And while we liked My Digital Studio since it first came out, I can tell you that the new Version 2 is absolutely fabulous! That little apple on my card was an all black stamp and I was able to color the stem and leaf green and the apple red with a digital brush…and let me tell you, that is a LOT of fun! There's even a pencil hiding on that white panel but I colored it white so it would disappear because I didn't want it on my card!
