I quickly (10 minutes) whipped up the second of the two-page spread for Carnton Plantation. You can see the first page here.
Aligning objects is a snap in My Digital Studio — literally. Selecting the Snap to Grid option ensures that items can’t be slid just anywhere on the page. It’s as if there are little bumpers that keep them in place. Secondly, you can select more than one object (for example, the two bottom pictures here), and select Align Bottom.
To make sure I had continuity between the two pages, I simply made a duplicate of the first page, then stripped out the elements I didn’t want to keep (most of them!). I re-used the star motif as another way to tie the two pages together.
Stampin’ Up! added more digital downloads for MDS this week. I thought they were going to do this just once a month, but it’s been more often than that. It’s hard to keep up! Luckily, a fellow demonstrator created a checklist for us to use to keep track of what’s offered and what we have already downloaded. You’ll find it here, on the Resources page of my blog. When there are changed, I’ll updated it, and you’ll be able to tell if it’s current by the date.
