My Digital Studio 2010 Calendar

I'm having so much fun using My Digital Studio!  I created this  2010 calendar for my Mom using MDS.  It was simple to create, and I know she will really like it.  It was fun going through the photos of our travels together.  Take a look, and let me know what you think.


For those of you who will be creating hard bound albums using My Digital Studio, one word of advice: Watch your margins.

This came from Stampin' Up!:

Stampin' Up! sent this notice out on the 20th:

When creating personalized hardcover albums, you will need to leave a 5/8" margin/bleed area on all sides of the front and back covers (your first and last pages) to ensure that your designs aren't cut off at the edges when your book is printed. For all other pages, leave 1/4" on the top and bottom of the pages and 1/2" on the sides. An update to all guides will be included in a software patch, expected in the coming weeks.

All personalized hardcover albums will have a barcode printed directly on the back of the book. While the actual barcode is only 1-3/4" x 1/4" (1.75" x .25"), there is a 2-7/8" x 1-1/8" (2.875" x 1.125") window where the barcode could be placed. The edge of the window is 7/8" (.875") from the spine and 3/8" (.375") from the bottom of the book. Please see visual above.

If there is a designed image/background anywhere in this window it could be covered by a permanent barcode with a white background box that is 1-3/4" x 1/4" (1.75" x .25").



Happy Stampin'!
