Onesie Time

Stampin' Up!, MDS, Baby gifts

I bought a pack of onesies for a craft project later next month, and I had these four left over.  I decided to use some of my transfer paper and My Digital Studio (MDS) to create some one-of-a-kind onesies for my new grandchild.  I can’t wait!!  He or she (everyone’s thinking “she”) is due in September.  S/he’s due around the 12th, but I don’t think it would be too bad if s/he was a little early and arrived on my birthday.  What a great birthday gift, right?

These were super easy to make.  I found some appropriate images in MDS, and added them to an 8-1/2″ x 11″ canvas.  I recolored them and printed them on transfer paper.  (Tip:  If you have an image that needs to be exactly like the computer image – like, words, for example – be sure to “mirror” the image so it makes sense!)  Follow the directions on the transfer sheet package.  For mine, I trimmed close to the images, then ironed on the “cotton” setting (no steam) for about 90 seconds.  Don’t remove the transfer paper until it’s completely cool (this is very important!), and go slowly, just in case you missed a spot and have to go back over it.  That’s it.  Easy, right?

Try MDS for 30 days – FREE!  You don’t have to pay for it unless you like it and want to keep it.  But trust me, if you use it, you’ll like it.  Tons of Stampin’ Up! images, embellishments and paper right there in your computer.  Since they’re digital, they’re less expensive – and they never retire.  And if you decide you don’t like your project, just delete it.  I sometimes use MDS to design a project I’m going to do on paper just to see what it will look like before I start inking card stock.  That way, nothing’s wasted if I don’t like it, except a few minutes of my time.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
