Quick Page Success!

Wow! I just realized how long it's been since my last post! Geez! I'm bad! But I have been learning some digi know-how in the interim. I've just mastered an easy method of making Quick Pages out of layouts, and this is something I've always wanted to learn, so I'm excited and feel the extreme need to share!! It will facilitate a lot more freebies from me! Yipee!! I found a great (but short) tutorial in the forum of Go Digital Scrapbooking, and this has helped me over the proverbial hump in PSE6. I love concise directions that really work, so I intend to post that exact tutorial in this blog very soon in the next few days so that perhaps more like me can benefit from it.

For now, I am so enthused I have to share one of my own creations with you. It's called a "Quick Page Plus" (or QP+) which I learned from designer Joni Gray. When I began to follow her blog, she not only gave away the quick page but included the background paper and whatever elements she had on the quick page as separate files so you could move them around to suit yourself or use them in other layouts of your own. I thought this was a really neat concept and quite generous of her, so I shall attempt doing the same fow now.

My FREEBIE for today is the first in a series of wild looking abstracts you can collect here. I've included the QP, the paper, and the frame in the zip file for you. The QP is in png format so it can be used in almost any program and is 12 x 12 inches at 300 dpi, the paper is in jpg format and the same size and resolution, and the frame is in png format and large enough that you can play around with the size to suit yourself. I left the QP blank other than the frames so you can dress it up with your own journaling and other elements as desired. I hope you'll find use for it and enjoy it somewhere in your scrappin' needs. My abstracts are spawned from a cross in the southern heat of summer here and my past of growing up during the true hippie years, so never be alarmed at what you may see here! Haha!! I still consider myself a "modified hippie". Here's the preview:

As you can see, this will hold four photos of your choice. If you like it and download, please leave me some love to spur me on. If I can see that it's well received, I can be back daily with a new one for you!!

My mind is way ahead of what my fingers are able to keep up with each day. Does anybody else have a problem with 24 hours in a day being too short?

Be back soon! Tootles!
