I created my tutorial with Jasmine but you can use what ever font you like. The tutorial shows an "ABCD" book. Once you get the hang of it, you can create as many pages as you want.
OK, Open a new DS file. Depending on the number of letters you will have in your book, create that many tabs. I create a Preview tab plus a page for each letter. Then so that I can align everything in preview I also put the Top Letters on their own tabs too. See all of the tabs in the example:
Start with the last page of the book so that you will know how wide your book will be. Select George cart,
Resize the square so that it is height of the book you want. All of your future pages will be this same height. Check the WELD box:
Go to the Letters available for the cartridge you want to work with, select the Shadow Feature. Select your letter and make it the same height as your square (if you want the letter to be the full height of your book) . Move it to the right end of your square so that the left edge of the letter overlaps the right edge of the square:
Click Preview. If you welded both letters properly all you will see is a heavy black line around the outer edge of your page, and any inside cuts like the half circle in the D.
If you like how everything is lined up, you're ready to move to your next page! Select your next to last page. Place your Square and stretch it out so its the same height as the previous page you worked on but not nearly as wide.
Add your next letter, making it the same height and moving it to the right end of your page so it overlaps the right edge
Finish the rest of your pages the same way you made the ones above.
Now it's time to add the TOP Letters if you are going to cut these out for your book Go to the last page of your book. I start at the back because when you preview the letters and shapes overlap in the same order as the tabs appear.
Select the letter you want to add to your book making sure that Shadow feature is NOT selected. Do not WELD. You will need to stretch the letter to fit just inside the page letter shape:
