Thankful Crop - MDS Blog Hop

A bunch of us have joined together to share our passion for digital designing with Stampin' UP's My Digital Studio.  These ladies are SERIOUSLY talented in MDS and I am thrilled to be on this Blog Hop with them! You will find us blog hopping on the 2nd and 4th THURSDAYS of each month!  
For the MDS Blog Hop this time, we are sharing what we have been doing in MDS!
So once a month, my friend Monika and I hold an online virtual digi crop on our Facebook group page. We had one just this week! If you missed it or not part of our group, you still can join us! Just look for our group: MDS Virtual Digi Crop and ask to join. Once we approve you then you can click on events and see both challenges there. But I wanted to share my challenge with you here and inspire you to go create and join us!

I am going to share the feature where you can crop an embellishment. You can get really creative with this!  Several of the ladies who joined us had some great ideas on this technique.

1. Select an embellishment that has a wide area to crop from. The burlap flag here is perfect for this with the texture. Add to your project. Now click on CROP in the Design Center to the right under Embellishments.
2. In the Crop Embellishment area, select CROP SHAPE. 
3. Now you will want to choose the punch. I used the maple leaf punch from the Wonderful download. Then click on APPLY when done.
4. The Crop Embellishment area will come back up and you can see the maple leaf image coverage is larger than my burlap embellishment. Click on the corner box and size down the image fits. Select OK. 
5. Now your cropped embellishment will appear on your project. You can use the corner boxes to alter the size of it. (you can even re-color the embellishment from here like I did and re-colored to Tangelo Twist)
Here is a link to a video that shows how to Crop Embellishments from Stampin’ UP.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to join our monthly 
online virtual MDS digi crop nights!
