Rotating the backgrounds or templates gives more page options. For example, I'm scrapping a trip to TX and using a TX flag background. On one page I have it the regular way, and on another I brought it in as an embellishment and rotated it 90 degrees. Rotating or flipping the backgrounds is a good way to make two-page spreads too.
Thanks, Wendy, for your help. I was able to flip and rotate anything as long as it's not brought in as a template or background. Does anyone know where the SBM template files are located on my computer? I looked in the ScrapbookMax folder in my documents under gallery/images/backgrounds, and only the new kits I bought are there (which were only kits, no templates), but all the content that came with the program and the Life is Beautiful expansion pack is not in the SBM folder in My Documents.
