My Digital Studio - Pretty Girl pages

A couple of simple pages I threw together in memory of my parents dog that passed away. I used My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up! plus a few of the extra downloads. I like that there are new downloads released weekly so I can add more to the program, not be stuck with what came in the original package.

One of the pages is supposed to resemble a dog collar and tag the other a dog bone. I think they are both pretty plain, the dog bone one is especially. I'm sure I'll be tweaking it. The beauty of doing a digital page, I can go back in and change things without wasting real supplies.

I made my own background paper using a piece from the digital Night and Day designer paper. I then randomly stamped a dog from the Man's Best Friend stamp set.
TIP to make it go a little faster: stamp a small portion of the background, then group those images together, copy the grouped images then paste them all over the page, turning them as you like. I love this feature of being able to rotate the grouped images ! Once I made the background paper, I exported it to jpg then moved that saved file (I renamed it first) back into the programs Components folder under Backgrounds then Designer Series Paper folder where I made my own Custom folder. I inserted the dog background paper I made on the dog collar page then reduced the opacity for the dog bone page. 

I also have another folder in the same place titled Photographs that I moved a few .jpg images into so I could paper fill the punch images with photographs rather than paper. This is how I made the dog bone photo collage with digital punches and filled the heart on the dog collar tag.
