My Digital Studio: Tips to Make Your Pages In A Flash

Did you know that you can make “page maps” or design your own templates with My Digital Studio?

It’s pretty easy, actually. You can import any previous page from another file into your current album/project. The only catch is that it has to be the same page size. So you can’t bring a 6×6 page into an 8.5 x 11 album.
(But you can change a 6×6 book to an 8×8 book! More on this below 🙂

So here’s what you do…

  1. Open the project you want to bring a page into (or a page template).
  2. Go under the Insert menu and click “Import from My Projects…”100402-MDS-page-maps
  3. Find the folder that has the page you want.
  4. Pick the specific page(s) you want to use, then click Import.100402-MDS-insert-page

If you wanted, you could even make a project that’s nothing but templates (or page maps). Then when you import the pages that you want, you can click to change the background paper, color of cardstock, add new stamp images, etc. Very easy!

Here are two pages that started out with the same design. On the second page, I switched the colors, the stamp images and the Designer Series Papers.

More good news: if you want to use a 12 x 12 page as a template for a 6 x 6 page, you CAN do that. Or you could make a 12 x 12 album into a 6 x 6 album. It’s actually an option under the “Edit” menu, all the way at the bottom: Change Project Size/Type…

I hope these tips and screenshots will help you learn a little bit more about using your My Digital Studio software for digital scrapbooking and cards!
