Back to School: Digi-Papers

Howdy to all....
It has been a crazy week with the holiday right in the middle and just getting back from Vacation. I am working away on catching up. I think I have about 200 emails still to reply to. If I missed you, please just email again. I apologize. Hoping I got most of them replied to. Our 4th was adventurous with a Vet visit at 6 a.m. for our puppy Border Collie who got bit by a rattlesnake. because he is young he is in good spirits already and hopefully will bounce back with little repercussion. Of course now we are on the hunt to find the rattlesnake because of the other dogs and horses and our own toes. So annoying to have to put on real shoes at dusk instead of slip on my flip flops when running out to the studio. But a snake bit alternative is just NOT worth it. Did you know horses cannot breathe through their mouth? And usually get tagged on the nose causing the nose to swell from a rattlesnake bit to the point of closure and then they die from asphyxiation.. of course you know how I know. We had a horse tagged years ago on the nose and we had to put those heavy duty drinking straws that whistle up his nose so he could breathe somewhat. We would have done hose, but the swelling was already to bad by the time we found him. And his every breathe was a whistle. He made it. Thank goodness, but the shots of penicillin we had to give were unbelieveably huge. I digress. Our puppy is home and now we just hope his leg nerves etc don't suffer any damage. He is not happy about "limited exercise" from the vet. not happy about it at all! but he'll get over it as he is treated like a king.

Back to the day at hand....

We are on countdown to school. And this year I wanted to start creating digiscrap kits for digital scrapbooking. So it's July... wow I am almost there. haha. Actually I have a freebie for you today that is the paper for a set I am working on. I call it "back to school".  These are large zip files. so please download them with patience. Please download the zip and save to your computer. I will leave this file up til I have the next part of the kit to offer.


When you download you are acknowledging that you plan to use for your Personal use only or to participate in the Quick Page Club for this kit if you so desire to participate. (more info below).

This file can be downloaded in two parts because they are huge zips together. I bundled it in two. Download one and two. If this link does not work then it has been taken down. This set will not be loaded to the "Perks" section for the QMC which is mostly for dig-cutter files. It will be loaded to the store after the parts have been offered for free download. 

Quick Page Club Kit. Want to join?


I am thinking about running a Quick Page Club for this kit. That means you download the kit as I offer it. (or purchase from the store after it is loaded) When the last section is done you send in a Quick Page including only the items in the kit. A quick page is something folks can insert their photos into easily and be done "Quick" with a layout. I will take all of those QPs created and bundle them up in a zip and send out to the participants. The layout needs to be a 12x12 and if you wish to do a 4x6 I will send any of matching sizes to those who participated.

I like 4x6 QPs because I can make little gifts for my nieces out of them with their friends photos and bind them with my bind-it-all. Easy Peasy. So if you are interested in the Quick Page Club kit please comment on my blog post or in the forum. So I have an idea of how many might want to participate. You will know when I have posted new pieces of the kit by following my blog, visiting the forum or it posts to my facebook page.

When I have all the bundles done and sent out I will load to the store and sell in order to donate part of the proceeds as a donation to some of the organizations I participate in. (Most know this is Scouts, Lego, School, Equine related, etc etc)   So if you send me a Quick Page you are acknowledging that I will be reselling them in a bundle. And that your work will also be sent out to anyone who is participating in the QP club for that kit. Hope that all makes sense.

When I post the last part of the kit, I will list the deadline for the QPClub and ask for them to be sent in. At 300 dpi at 12x12 or 4x6 inches. Using only the items offered in the kit. File format to be a flattened jpg or png. If it is not flattened I will do so in Photoshop when I get it. Your name/email will be added to the list of folks receiving the bundle back in whole when I get your entry. 


So here was go on a new adventure as I hope to create digi-scrap kits right along side my digi-cut files. What a great combination. So many are already using my digi-cut files for the scrapping end.

Have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!
Chris
