A couple of times each month we have a My Digital Studio Digi Crop.  The last time we met was the week before Thanksgiving and we shared a trick with everyone an easy way to use a sketch that you might find somewhere as a jump start for your My Digital Studio layout.  We used a sketch from the MDS Monday Sketch blog and I decided to play along and submit my page.  I just realized that my page was selected as one of the TOP Picks!  How fun is that!

2013 Family Book-011

so do you want to know the trick?

  • Find a sketch that you want to use online somewhere – save it to your computer as a jpg file.
  • open your My Digital Studio project and go to a blank page
  • add a photo to the page – and choose the jpg file that you saved of the sketch
  • this creates a “map” for you to follow
  • add your photo boxes and page layers on top of the “map”
  • when you are done delete the photo from the back

I turned the sketch for my page – so I added it as a photo box and then rotated it – then I placed my photo boxes and the punch for the strip across the page.  I deleted the sketch and added my other elements and text.  It was a brilliant idea that Cindy had!
