Playing with Stamps


I had so much fun creating this page tonight while sitting on the couch with my hubby. I love the fact that I was able to pull some of the colours (Dusty Durango) out of Lucas' swim shirt and turn it into a page. I don't feel obligated to use the Designer Pages (pre-designed pages that you just slide your photos into) although I'm sure that there will be many occasions for those too. I've got plans to take many photos this Christmas for one:) I was able to crop all of my photos once they were on the page in a matter of seconds. The layering is a breeze and you can easily move a piece of DSP either back or forward as many layers as you want. I was able to add the stitching on the right hand side by just ckicking on embellishments... and I didn't even need to thread the sewing machine! (now if only hemming my pants were that easy:) The matting that I had to figure out the other night had a much simpler way than I first realized. I didn't notice the little "mat" icon and I was trying to create pieces of cardstock that were just slightly larger than my photos. I LOVE THIS, and can't wait to see the finished product when my first book (or twenty:) arrive!
