Facebook Timeline Header

So I was too lazy to get my but out of the warm bed this morning but didn't want to keep sleeping--so what's a girl to do???? I reached over and grabbed my laptop and open my MDS (My Digital Studio) and started playing.  I wasn't really sure what I wanted to so since I have limited stuff on my laptop but then I thought about a header for my timeline on Facebook--one for the upcoming holiday

VALENTINES DAY--THE SEASON OF LOVE!

here is what I can up with--not too bad considering the limited amount of images I had on the laptop to work with--I actually like it--and it was so easy I can change it out again and again and again and---well you get the idea!



I do not have a Facebook business page--just my personal page--want to see it in "action"

With the new MDS2+ it was easier than ever!  Just open a new project.  Pick custom from the new project screen.  When it opens change the inches to pixels and set a custom size to
851 pixels wide and 315 pixels
This will fit perfect without stretching--if you make it smaller it will get stretched and if you make it too big it will not load.  After you have your blank canvas just design like a mini scrapbook page or card front.  One thing to keep in mind is that this is a pretty small area when you add stamps or elements they are HUGE and need to be re-sized--you may need to move them around to find the corner to shrink--or you can always use the re-size tool but to me that is more difficult.  Please feel free to ask if you have questions.  But remember Blogger does not show e-mails unless you have your google account set to share--so leave a reply e-mail or check back for the answer in the comments section!
Happy Creating!
