Something for your mom! If you have just stumbled on my Blog, type ‘MDS Scrap Page’ in the Search Box (top left corner) to see what we have been doing. I have a few Guides listed at the bottom of this post but click on HELP (across the top of the program) > My Digital Studio Help for further help. I am using Windows 7. Watch for NEW Scrap Pages posted every Friday.

Background paper - Designer Series Paper – Designer Kits – Ice Cream Parlor 1.
Cardstock – Melon Mambo - Add as Page Layer.
Stamp – Torn Edges – flower edge – change color - Melon Mambo.
Stamp – Bliss – flourish - change color - Whisper White – Opacity (on bottom, right) to 20. It looks like we used Versamark to create this.
Page before adding Photo boxes.
Embellishment - Designer Kits – Ice Cream Parlor borders 3. Also choose #1, flip it.
Embellishment – Staple and Stitching – Whisper White zigzag.
Stamps – All Holidays – Mother’s Day – enlarge – change color - Whisper White.
Punch – Designer Label – enlarge – color fill – Pacific Point – mat size 6 – Daffodil Delight. Set Mother’s Day stamp on top of label.
Embellishment - Designer Kits – Ice Cream Parlor flowers – yellow one. Enlarge – copy and paste for a second flower – Mirror.
Embellishment – Grosgrain ribbon knot – Melon Mambo – rotate as needed. Use your arrow keys to nudge in place.

Once I was happy with my label, I Grouped it by holding down my shift key and clicking on each element. Arrange – Group. Now I can move it around without coming apart.
Punch – oval – color fill - Whisper White - mat - Pacific Point. Change Opacity (on bottom, right) to 60. It looks like we are using a piece of vellum for our Text box.
I like to Drop Shadow everything! (You will have to Ungroup everything you have Grouped in order for it to Shadow. Click on the item – Arrange – Ungroup). Click on one Embellishment – Drop Shadow – Opacity to 65, Blur to Medium - Save as Default – on this page. Now all my Embellishments will be Shadowed. Click on one Stamp image – Drop Shadow. Since the Opacity and Blur are set, click ‘on this page’. Now all my stamped images will be Shadowed. Repeat for one Text, one photo and one punch and click ‘on this page’. You can certainly Drop Shadow each item as you go but I tend to do it at the end.
Insert > Insert Duplicate Page Mirrored to easily make a double page spread or just bump it forward for another layout. Again, watch for a NEW Scrap Page posted next Friday.
My Digital Studio Catalog PDF catalog will be updated every month and is available to you on under Resources. If you have not ordered your copy of My Digital Studio yet or if you would like to order anything from the catalogue, just click on the On Line Ordering button in my left sidebar and your order will be mailed directly to you! Downloads will go to your computer automatically.
A few Guides:View > Guides > Photo Page Bleed Area – you want this turned on.

Ruler – make sure Ruler is check marked under View as you want this turned on too.

Arrange – Order button to bring to front, send to back etc.

Nudge – click an item, then use your arrow keys to nudge in the direction of the arrow. Clicking on the corners of the icon will nudge the photo diagonally.

Change your margins in every album you create. File > Print set up > change all margins to 0. It will adjust automatically to the minimum size.

Photo Shape - Click on the Photo Box once (on the right). To turn your Photo from a square/rectangle to a circle/oval, click Photo Shape. After changing the photo shape, if you would like to modify the shape without affecting the photo, click Crop (instead of using the gray boxes on the sides and corners of the photo).

If your page is too big or too small for your screen, click on the – (minus) or + (plus) button in the lower, right corner (Zoom area) to reduce or enlarge your page.
