Is there a way to change the direction of the drop shadow in SBM? If not has any found a technique for making your own drop shadow?

Hi, Bekah! You can't change SBM's direction but you CAN make your own shadows. Put the embellishment or letter where you want it to go and the exact size you want it. Then click Edit>Copy>Edit>Paste. That will put the exact same embellishment over the first one. Go to Effects>Advanced>Brighten/?(something- can't think exactly what it says) Then slide your brighten to the left. This will darken the embellishment to black. Then move the black embellishment behind the first, colored version and you can place your shadow anywhere you want it to be.
