Visit often, new things always being added

Top o' the morning to ya! During the mad holiday rush, I had some ideas brewing that I wanted to design but didn't have time to get around to it. So, in the calm of the tail end of our winter season, I am going to attempt to produce some things that were floating around in my head.

One was Christmas Tree Quick Pages with circular photo holders/cut-outs. The other night I was in the mood to jump on into that idea and the pages developed pretty rapidly. I had to stop myself at 33 of them! LOL! Hard drive room, you know! I will be randomly giving them all to you over the next few weeks, so pop in often if you want to collect all the different background papers on them. This FREEBIE QP holds 15 circular photos in the shape of a Christmas tree, complete with a brown wood-look trunk which is slightly shadowed. I left the page relatively clean so you can add your own elements of choice, text title, and/or journaling and have enough room for all that. Remember, you can also mix it up and place pretty papers in some of the photo spots too.

These Quick Pages are all 12 x 12-inch, 300 dpi, pngs. You can easily reduce them to 8x8" if that's your preference to scrap with. This one has a small block mosaic looking background which you may not be able to see until you pop it into your scrapping program or get the high-resolution one up on your screen. Here's the preview . . .


Again, providing an option on download sites, the first will always be Box (wonderful), and the second will be 4Shared.  I do this for several reasons.  Box has no hassles such as wait time or pop-ups or annoying ads.  However, on occasion I run out of bandwidth there in a month's time, so I back it up with 4Shared just so when you arrive here my freebie should always be available.

I did a Holiday Album with 32 layouts so far, and I  used a tree photo template to make a page about random shots from Christmases past which ended up being quite sentimental to me by the time I finsihed it up.  Mine had only about 10 photo slots on it though, and I found myself wanting just a few more, so that's how 15 photo holders worked into a tree came to be.  Always a story in there somewhere!

Okay, I won't ramble on today.  I should be dutiful and jump off and do housework.  UGH!  Not my favorite thing!  Have a great weekend, and I'll be back with more of these QP's and some fantastic new word art soon!
