Freebie - Yellow 8x5 inch quickpage

Just because I haven't posted in a while, and I've been downloading some items these last two days --- hopefully someone can use this page! It is a rectangular page, created from my "Denim and Yellow" page kit (or Denim and Chicks - whatever you want to call it!)

To the right is a pic of the full kit, if you click on it, you should see a bigger view.

The quickpage is on 200 ppi, and made to hold one photo. I've used it to scrap an old university picture, as well as a separate page or front page for a recipe book, as in the sample below. The sample is what the quickpage looks like. I haven't yet put it into an online gallery so you can see more, but hopefully can do so this afternoon (this is just a thumbnail).

If you can use the page, here is the download link - but please, if you take it, leave me some love here, would you? And if you use the page, please post the link so we can go see what you did!

The link will be live for seven (7) days from today, Oct. 24th, or for 100 downloads.

Layout using the quickpage: Student Fun - or if this link doesn't work, go to the 3Scrapateers link to the right, in the bar, and you should be taken to my gallery.

Thanks for wanting my stuff - hope you can use it!

Another LO - using a template

HI again, everyone

This weekend was very busy, with lots of stuff happening. We also worked on items for the upcoming Craft Show in November at church. Carolyn had bought some handmade items which we used as samples to create about 100 small gifts, decorated with mulberry paper, quotes, ribbon and stickers to sell at the craft sale. It was a great day on Saturday!

Afterwards, I felt like doing some scrapping - haven't done any since going to Windsor for a scrapbooking weekend in September (and those pictures are not even uploaded in a gallery yet. Sigh. Anyone have spare time to trade?)

--links are below or in the right-hand bar; please keep reading! ---

I downloaded a template from Alma Townsend for her October Template Challenge at SBE, and used the kit by Vickey Morrissey (in the July 2006 free SBE Newsletter) to create the layout. The pictures used, are not very good, but I wanted to scrap them, because of the memories, and everything happening around a sick friend. The pictures were taken on Oct. 2004, and she passed away a year later (just a year ago now).

Templates are great fun! The idea is that all the layers are in different colours of grey, and you use your stash of papers, etc. to fill the different layers to create your own layout. It is different from a sketch, in the sense that the shapes and sizes can be selected and filled. Hard to explain - try it yourself!

Links: SBE (Scrapbook-Elements) Monthly newsletter is free, you just have to sign up for it to download the gifts and learn more about challenges, digital scrapbooking, and so on.

Alma Townsend is the author and owner of The ScrapHabit, and she also had a monthly Newsletter.
Her template is available from the SBE Gallery, for the month of October, 2006, so grab it quick! Just read the info under the template to download.

Ystervarkies - QP layout

Haven't posted anything in a while - it has been going nuts lately!
Meetings, this and that, pets and whatnot - I don't know why we keep so many balls in the air, but I suppose we'll collapse without that, right?

Anyway, I've just managed to scrap an old picture, taken in 2004, of the boys helping to make Ystervarkies (a sweet, chocolatey South African treat). Thumbnail is to the left, and should take you to the gallery on 3Scrapateers where the bigger layout is.
(More info under the bigger layout.)

The quickpage is from J. Burkhart's blog. Thanks so much for sharing!
