MDS Thursday: Fake it Til You Make It > Top Note

I use the Top Note die a lot on my cards and regular scrapbook pages, so I wanted to be able to use it on my MDS pages too. So it was time to fake it.

( BTW:I did this before the Top Note was available for MDS download.)

I used the same layout as last week.  I really like it :)

The fake in the this layout is the "Top Note" on the second page.

How to fake a "Top Note":

 Add the curly label punch and enlarge it.

Use the paper fill to add a DSP.

Add a second curly label punch

 Enlarge it and place it over the original "top note".  Use the shift key to highlight the two punches > click on align objects > center.  This helps to create the border look.

Fill it with a contrasting DSP.

And Ta Da!!!! A fake Top Note !!!

Go give it a try.  Thanks for looking.


  1. Great job figuring that out! Thank you so much for sharing it with us...someday when I break it out again, I'll have to give this a try! :)

  2. Thanks for sharing this technique. I'm always amazed at the options with MDS.
