Layered Template #43: 2 Pager, 11 Photo



I just realized I had a 2-page template waiting to be uploaded! It's been sitting in a folder for about 3 weeks just waiting. Oops! You can tell how busy it's been at our house this summer!

Let's see... other things going on (other than being nuts busy).

I finished my family's 2007 scrapbook album! Now to wait for a coupon for printing it. I filled up all 100 allowed pages at Shutterfly! Definitely can't afford to pay for it until there's a sale!

I also just finished an "ABC: Jesus Loves Me" 6x9 book for a fundraiser for the Homeless Center. I put A-Z animals and A-Z bible verses together into this little booklet. I got news today that it has shipped (the first sample) -- so we'll see how it looks!

The other project I'm in the midst of is making a book out of the blog I have about my kids. Since February 2007, I've been trying to document all the silly things they say and do during our daily life. So I'm basically "writing a book" with a picture here or there to fill the space. I know that blogs won't be around forever, but hopefully the Blog Book will be around for the next generations. It's been a fun trip down memory lane. Also some of the quickest/easiest scrapping I've ever done, because I can just cut/paste!

Alright, that's it for me. I got sucked into "Project Runway" and am up much later than I intended as a result. But it's nearly over, so definitely time for bed!

HERE is today's template download link.

Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Digital Scrapbooking Freebie search engine today (look for timestamp: 23 Jul [LA 11:00pm] - 24 Jul [NY 01:00am, UK 06:00am, OZ 04:00pm]).

I just started our kids blog page too. I can't wait to publish our book a year from now. I would really love to show you the Heritage Makers program that allows you to print books. The quality and the flexibility is so much better than Shutterfly. I don't know what you are paying for a Shutterfly book, but you can do a 12x12 book with up to 99 pages starting at $80 not on sale. There is also room for selling and you get a discount. It's perfect for a designer and they are even offering designers a special opportunity within the company to showcase their "stuff" and earn some money too. I love being able to be paid for what I'm doing already. I love your style and I love your way of bringing virtue into your work and your memories. This company prides itself on the same thing...family, heart, memories, photos, digital designing, supplemental income or full-time income. Just call if you are interested in learning a bit more. I always love to have people do what they do even better. Contact me through my website at www.TakeTimeToRemember.com or sara@taketimetoremember.com Thanks for sharing your layout! I check this blog every morning when I sign on to my computer!

Sarah, thanks so much! Just wanted to let you know I used a lot of your wedding templates to do a surprise 8"x8" album for my husband to celebrate our 40th anniversary - he loved it! Thanks again! SusanK

Sarah, Shutterfly started a 20% off photo books sale today, and $15 off $60 or more, or something like that. I'm sure the 20% would give you a bigger discount.

I just found your blog today - all I can say is THANK YOU so much for these wonderful templates! I used to scrap all of the time, and then kind of gave it up after I had my son. Now he's 2.5 and I have a lot of catching up to do - these templates will help a ton! Thanks!

I absolutely love your blog. I feel blessed by reading it and hearing that rendition of Amazing Grace! Truly Sweet! Thanks for the template. I am going to convert it to DIP format, I am learning how to do that thanks to Lisa Minor's tuts!
