digital night and day! . . . and other new digital downloads available now!

I am currently working on a very special digital album.  This album will be a gift for my brother and sister in law, so I don't want to share it all here and spoil the surprise, but I did want to give you a sneak peek at the first page and explain one of the quick and easy techniques I am using to create my own custom backgrounds on the pages.  Here's the first page:

The background on this is actually created in three layers.  First, I added Pumpkin Pie as the background color for the page, then toned down the color a bit by adjusting the "opacity."   (This is as easy to do as sliding a control button until you get the look you want!)

Next, I added one of the beautiful designer papers from the Night and Day digital download.  Instead of adding this as the background, which would have replaced the pumpkin pie, I selected the "Add as Page Layer" button.  Then, I resized the paper to take up the entire page.  Again, I adjusted the opacity to about 80%, so that the pumpkin pie color would show through and the paper would be lighter and more lacy looking. 

I repeated the process one more time with another of the designer papers from Night and Day (love this stuff -- marketed as Halloween paper, but so much more versatile than that!  And, you have to love being able to change the background color behind it!) 

To complete the page, I added the photo, the text, and the digital scallop stamps.  This software really is terrific -- easy to learn for beginners, but yet with plenty of creative options for those who have been doing digital scrapbooking for a while! 

Speaking of creative options, there are also some new digital downloads available for My Digital Studio.  They are:
