MDS: Easy 2-Page Layouts from Templates

Yesterday I told you that there were <gasp!> extra My Digital Studio digital scrapbooking Page Templates that you might not know about.  Today I’m going to tell you how to turn a single page into an instant 2-page spread in My Digital Studio (learn more about MDS).

  1. First get the page designed that you want
  2. Go to the Insert menu at the top of the screen
  3. Choose “Insert Duplicate Page Mirrored”

The new page will appear in the page tray at the bottom of your screen.  If you want to make a 2-page spread, it should already be right next to the page you just copied.

Since the page is a duplicate but mirrored page, you may need to delete or replace a few stamped images.  For example, any stamped words (created from individual stamped letters) will now be backwards.

You can even check your pages to make sure they’re lined up the way you’d like.  This way you can see what your printed album is going to look like before you upload and send it to the Stampin’ Up! printer.

See how this looks?  This is done by choosing “Check Project” in the Design Center on the right side of your MDS screen.  The viewer will let you page through your virtual album one page at a time.

I loved that this single 12 x 12″ page template from the To The Nines Designer Series Paper Digital Download (see it online) became a perfect 2-page layout for our Daisy Girl Scout camping trip from this past weekend.

Hot dogs, anyone?
