Design your life workshop

Finally, after some really busy days at work before Christmas, I can enjoy some lazy days off. And to make sure I don't get borded, I've signed up for Cathy Zielske's workshop "Design Your Life" at Big Picture Scrapbooking. The WS is starting on December 31st, so if anyone still wants to sign up, check out the page: Design Your Life workshop

I got a book by Cathy Zielske for Christmas last year: "clean & simple scrapbooking" and I love her - well - clean and simple style. It will be great to actually be able to learn from Cathy and to even ask her questions and chat to her!

Same template, different file type

Here is the template from my last post once more. This time I saved every single layer as a PNG file (except layer one, which is a 300 dpi, 12x12 inch jpeg).

PNG Files

If you need help how to use this, there are tutorials (for different kinds of software) on the DSP homepage for how to use this type of templates (quick clicks):

Digital Scrapbook University

Just go to "using DSP products" and than to "Quick Clicks, using" and pick which software you're using.

A layered template and a plopper

I used my kit from the blogtrain to make this layout:

And because I liked it so much, I decided to turn it into a template so I can redo it more easily. And being busy with that, I thought a plopper might be a good idea as well. And because Christmas is coming, I'll give both to you (okay, I would have given them away anyway, Christmas is just an excuse for producing MORE freebies ...).

Download both in one file: ILR_Homespun Christmas Template and Plopper

I would so love to see some layouts done with these freebies (or with the corresponding kit)!

Little in between freebie

My grandmum used to have a tin box full of buttons that I liked to play with when we visited her. I've always loved the variety of shapes, material and colors and spent hours sorting them (it was a big tin box). My mum also has a tin box full of buttons. When she throws out old clothes that are too worn for charity, she cuts off the buttons and keeps them.

Did I mention I also have my own button tin box (although it's quite a little one in comparison)? It seems to be a kind of a family tradition.

Well anyway. Today I borrowed my mum's box and made a little freebie for you (300 dpi). Hope you enjoy it.

The Stuff to Scrap "Homespun Christmas" blogtrain is on! After downloading all the contributions you will have one HUGE beautiful mega-Christmas kit to scrap all those photos of kids frantically tearing up gift wrapping while the grownups enjoy the eggnogg. ;-)
I love the color scheme and I love being part of this blogtrain. Hope you enjoy the ride!!
