His and Her Stampin’ Up! Convention 2012

Convention 2012-001

On our way to convention in Salt Lake City, our blue truck with a gas engine had to work pulling our new 5th-wheel trailer up the Blue Mountains in Oregon. I asked Ron if a diesel engine would have an easier job going up the mountains. That was the beginning! He claims I said "maybe we should consider getting a diesel truck." I don't recollect saying that as I really liked not having a truck payment. Guess what he did while I was at convention? Yep…went truck shopping. The new truck is huge and yes, it does pull the trailer up hills without beaking a sweat. Ron is one happy camper and since we get over 5 mpg better gas mileage, I am pretty happy too.

I just had to create this scrapbook page. This one is a 12 x 12 page but one of the wonders of MDS2 is that you can convert from one size project to another, even to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card with just a click of your mouse. So I changed it to an 8 1/2" x 11" page as well so I could print it out to remember the trip.

A little trick I used with the word 'convention': The letters are punches filled with designer series paper. Initially I placed the C at the left-hand bleed area and the last N at the right-hand bleed area. I had randomly placed the rest of the letter but made sure they were all the same size…1.5 inches. Then I selected them all by clicking on each one while holding down the shift key. Here comes the little secret…I used the 'space evenly horizontally' feature on the Align pulldown menu to space them across the page. While they were all still selected, I grouped them to lock the arrangement. Then I resized the whole group when I decided to add the text above it. I think it is so cool that the program spaced them evenly without changing the randomness! Another cool thing about MDS2 is that you can print out a supply list. This helps immesely when sharing projects online!!!
