(UPDATE: This kit is now available for $9.98 in the Daisie Store. Just click on the first picture to go to the store) I have been taking a little break from working on the holidays to create several new "Instant Album" kits. The first was just uploaded to Daisie for release next week. The first item created for any product line is incredibly time intensive, especially one that requires instructions and as detailed creative information as these kits have.
Each of my 6" Instant Albums will have 20 pages and between 80-120 pieces to them! Every single thing you need paper-wise for an album is provided, you simply add the pictures and any dimensional trims or embellishments you want to add. If you can print, cut out, arrange and glue you can create a magnificent scrapbook for yourself, a family member or as a gift for a birthday, shower or baby’s birth.
I include images of my prototype album that you can use for ideas or simply duplicate, whichever creative level you like best! I have written little notes about what I added, how I added it and ideas for creating your own embellishments.
This type of a kit is absolutely PERFECT for a beginning scrapbooker. If you’ve been so overwhelmed by walking into a store and seeing a million choices on the shelf that you left the store, you’ll love that I’ve made the choices for you. However, though they go together, they aren’t "matchy-matchy." Though this is a digital product (you print the pages off of your own computer), it doesn’t require very much digital skill at all. If you know how to print off of your printer and you can add text to a page that’s about all the skill that is required.
There is a complete page of text tags and titles that are geared towards the album’s theme and on this kit, I’ve also given you the same tags without text but ready for you to put your own on them. There is also a png template that is perfectly shaped for your photos to work in the mats that have been provided. All you do is drop you photo behind the template in your graphics program, move, size and print your photos and they are ready for you to cut out and glue in your album.
Additional albums for Wedding and Christmas have been created already and will be released in the next couple of weeks. Please leave suggestions of any other themes you would like to see an album for. No guarantees, but you know how often I take your ideas and run with them 🙂
THE PROVERB OF THE DAY: Prov 24:10-12
If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength!
Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, "But we knew nothing about this," does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?
COMMENTS: When trouble comes, you don’t have time to get strong, you have to do that when times are good. A lot of us think we’ll "get spiritual" one day, when we have the time or when we need to, but the reality is that when trouble hits, you will falter if you haven’t strengthened yourself beforehand.
The second part of this proverb tells us that we are indeed our brother’s keeper. If we see someone being raped or murdered or being oppressed by a mass-murdering tyrant, we do have responsibility before God to do what we can to stop it. We can convince man that we are innocent but our hearts will either condemn us or not, we can fool everyone but ourselves and God. Do we step out of our comfort zone to take care of others when it’s needed? God honors that in our lives and He rewards (for good or for evil) based on the hidden places of the heart. Hmmmm…. lots to think about!
