As I showed you yesterday, you can use My Digital Studio to make a scrapbook all of your own design. I did most of the layouts myself, and picked embellishments, stamp sets and papers from all over the place in the program.
Today I’ll share a couple of pages that I made using one of the built-in Designer Kits, Sunny Day. In these Designer Kits, there are entire pages all laid out for you. All you have to do is find your photographs and click and drag them into the spaces designed to holdl them. MDS resizes the photos for you automatically (it does this no matter how you lay out your scrapbook pages.)
What I scrapbooked this time was my trip back in May, where I visited my son and his family in Oregon, family and friends in Maryland, and a couple of side trips to different parts of Pennsylvania. The first page is the page that will be on the cover of my book. Stampin’ Up!’s printer will be offering books with leather covers, books with printed photo covers, and so much more! You can even get individual pages printed, and then add your own 3-D embellishments to make a hybrid page! This book, though, is just for printing.
Unfortunately, for today’s blog, I’m a bit limited in the pages I can show you because the pages contain photographs of lots of people with whom I enjoyed my trip, and I’m not going to bother them with requests to be able to post their pictures on the Internet. But you’ll get the gist of what MDS can do.
For one thing, I’m probably not someone who would put pink, green, orange and turquoise together on a scrapbook page. It really takes a good designer to make that color combo work. And Stampin’ Up! has some darned good designers, because I think this works just fine!
The page above is one that I made myself, but using only elements available in the Sunny Day Designer Kit. I didn’t need permission from the azaleas and rhododendrons to show their photographs off!
Beginning today, I’m back in the craft room to make some cards for swaps. Then I’ll be off for a couple of days while I go with my husband to Honolulu. I hope to get some of those swap cards done to share before I leave!
Meanwhile, start thinking about all those scrapbooks that you’ve been putting off because you just don’t have the time. When you get your own copy of My Digital Studio, you’ll get them done in NO time!
