My Convention DVD Case

Thanks for joining me today! I am super excited about Stampin Up's Convention next week.  So excited that I want to share something with all the demos out there!!! This will be a LONG post so bare with me!
I have to give create to Heather Summers for creating this on her blog and sharing it with her fans like me! Then the journal template is one that comes with the MDS program for a journal.

Step 1 - make a journal in MDS front and back and save as jpegs.
Step 2 - create a 8.5x11 landscape page in MDS.  Add two 5x7 photo boxes and fill with the jpegs that you just made above.  I then added a strip punch square in Baha Breeze. and the brads and stamp image.  I made sure the whole area measured 7" x 10 5/8" before saving it as a jpeg.  I also add a plain dsp page for the inside of the case to see since it is clear.
Step 3 - Print the jpegs on 8.5x11 matte photo paper or white cardstock.  I just laid the first side back into the tray and printed the back on the same paper.  You will have to trim it down to 7" x 10 5/8".

Step 4 - Insert into the sleeve of the DVD case.  Get it in place first and then close the case. It should line up perfectly.

You can email me at if you would like the jpeg files to print for yourself.

NOW here is what I did with the inside of the DVD case!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Everything I need to go to Convention in all one place! Also to keep together once I get home and store.  Like a memory book of my trip!  It is small enough to go in my Convention bag too.  Wonder what color the bag will be!???! I hope GREEN!

I need a place to put my name tag, vouchers, tickets, schedule, etc.  I used two clear envelopes and mounded them on the left side of case.  I just placed them on top of each other after trimming a little.  I took a piece of Baha Breeze cardstock to hide the top.  I printed in MDS my Convention schedule and cut to 4.25x5.5. I also have important cell phone numbers of my roommates and friends to get in touch with and meet up.
To create the notebook, I bought a black mini notebook from Walmart.  I took the journal cover and printed the jpeg on my printer at 4x6.   I took a piece of the notebook paper and traced the holes on the back side and punch them out with the small end of the Crop-a-dile.  Cut slits and then glue to the front cover.  I filled a pen with printed dsp and added some Baha Breeze Seam Binding ribbon.

The convention excitement is in the air and I just had to share!
I hope you enjoyed my very long post. Thank you all for stopping by!
Have a magical day!
