MDS 018 Canada Day Scrapbook Page

This is page one of a double spread page for Canada Day. If you just stumbled on my Blog, type ‘MDS Scrap Page 001 or 002 or 003 etc’ in the Search Box (top left corner) to see what we have done.I am using Windows 7. You Mac or other Windows people may have some adjustments to make. All this info plus more can be found by clicking HELP (across the top of the program) > My Digital Studio Help.
Choose Insert (from the toolbar) > Add Page from the menu > Blank Page > OK OR you can click on the blank page with the + (plus) sign on it from the toolbar. Just don’t forget to use the Arrange – Order button throughout this page process as you will need it.
Page before adding Photo boxes.
Background paper - Real Red.
Designer Series Paper – Designer Kits – Candy Cane 3 – Add as a Page Layer. Rotate 90* Right. Copy and Paste to make another one.
Stamps – Schoolbook Serif Alphabet for O canada. I turned on the Grid so I could line up the letters (View - Show Grid). Changed the color to Whisper White.
Punch – Word Window – color filled to Whisper White – matted to size 4 in Cherry Cobbler. Copy and Pasted to make a total of four Word Window punches – resized them – rotated three of them slightly.
Stamps – Canada Day – Maple Leaf – resized to fit the Word Window punch – changed color to Cherry Cobbler. Added three larger Maple Leafs – used the Match Color to change the color to the green that is in the stripe.  This is how I did that - clicking Match Color opens the Picker tab of the Choose Color window. This tab allows you to pick a specific color that is on the current page. Move your mouse around in the page preview area at the top left of the tab. The zoom area at the top right of the tab will show a pixel by pixel view of your cursor’s position in the preview area. To select a color, move the mouse around in the page preview area and click (left mouse button) when the black crosshair is over the color you would like to select. The color will now display in the Preview area at the bottom of the window – OK.
Punch – Circle – color filled to Very Vanilla – resized to fit the ends of the Word Window Punch. Matted in Cherry Cobler.
Stamps – Canada Day – Maple Leaf – resized to fit the circle punch – changed color to Cherry Cobbler.
Once my photos (matted in Baja Breeze) were in place, I added various sizes of Maple Leafs in Whisper White and Very Vanilla behind them. I Shadowed everything – Opacity to 75%, Blur to Medium. You will have to Ungroup everything you have Grouped in order for it to Shadow. Click on the item – Arrange – Ungroup.
