Well, sadly, this program's "home" is going the way of the Dodo bird. Stampin' Up is retiring this product and will no longer be offering support (or print services) for it. But... that doesn't mean it can't still be played with [grin].
I have loved this program for awhile but been very tentative in my use (mostly playing with posters, photo-manipulation and FB cover photos). I've been a "closet follower" (lurker lol) of several FB groups and blogs who challenge, encourage and help (yes they do) users of this program. I saw this week's sketch on MDS Monday and it intrigued me. I really wanted to do something like that and there were some gorgeous, tempting design samples that got my fingers itchy. Problem is, I really don't have a lot of current photos (other than my furbabies, papercrafts and copic colouring lol). But had a scant few photos from my son in Europe so... they became the guinea pig.
So, I'm not sure I really know what I was doing/or did and there is tons of room for improvement as I would've liked to incorporate more (like stamp letters instead of plain text) but I kept it pretty simple (it took me a couple hours of manipulation and sighing as my stuff would move/disappear/mutate lol) and hope 1) I'll learn more and be braver (this is only the second page I've ever attempted) 2) others will feel free to offer advice/points of what I could've/should've done and 3) that the MDS Monday blog and/or FB groups will continue as this is such a valuable and helpful group of ladies!
So here's my submission, bravely put out there for all to see.
