Baby Book Set and some QP Freebies

Presenting "QPs with a Twist". As some of you know, I've been making QPs for sometime now and since there are a lot of QPs everywhere, I thought of making something that you can only buy here (for now, I don't know maybe after a week or so, similar QPs will be available somewhere, LOL). But then, this is where you'll first see something like this.

My first three sets of "QPs with a Twist" have a "Baby's Book" theme. I'm always fascinated with Baby Diary. I would want one for my own children and for myself. Unfortunately, I don't have a baby book and so were my other siblings. But I will still make one for myself (LOL), I'll just include the information that I can get from my birth certificate and some other records. Anyway, the concept of this set came when I thought of giving a storybook-type album to my newborn niece. (I have an entry of that in my other blog which you can see here)

You can use these sets for your self, spouse (it's never too late, don't you thinks so) and for your children, nieces, nephews, godchildren, etc. One good thing about QPs is that you can use them to make several layouts. By just changing pictures and journaling, the layout can become an entirely new page. Go ahead and use them 100 times for all your loved-ones, LOL.

"QPs with a Twist" are 12x12 in size at 300 dpi. You can resize them 10"x10", 8"x8" and 6"x6" sizes. You can also print several copies of your project (one for yourself, two for the grandmas and one as gift for you child when s/he's about to leave the nest). Every set has two bonus QPs which you will not see in the preview. That's my little surprise/gift for you.

I used several kits from different designers and tube elements from different artist for the pages making this QP sets unique (see rightside sidebar and click the blinkie to go to the designer's websites).

I know you will be tempted to use these QP sets as a gift to your niece or your friend or pastor's newborn baby. In that case, it will no longer be for personal use--that's Scrapping for Others (S4O). Then maybe your neighbor or churchmate will see your personalized baby book and he/she doesn't know how to use the program to make such project. So, you will be asked to do one for his/her child/niece/godchild/grandchildren. And yes, you will be paid for it--that's Scrapping for Hire (S4H). To solve that problem, these QP sets are S4H/S4O friendly.

It's a good thing, the commercial use kits and tubes that I used in these sets do not restrict them. In the first place, I won't join the club or bought the items unless I can use them for this purpose. This has been a very generous offer so please do not share the link and password as well as the entire QP Sets to other digi-scrappers you know, tell them to buy their own set. I paid membership fees to several digiscrapping and tube artists clubs as well as bought commercial use items for my QPs, so please be kind and honest enough to respect my simple request. If you do not agree with this initial term, then, please don't buy. My previous works (element freebie, etc. has been pirated before. I just kept quiet about it and just wrote to 4shared. Some also shared the links and the password to things to some items that I'm selling. I feel so bad about it as I always give freebies but there are people who abuse others.)

(Note: If you want all three QP sets, don't click the paypal button right away. Scroll down at the end of this post for a great deal. But if you only want one set, go and click the paypal button under the set that you like.)

Before I was Born

Hodding Carter said that "There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children -- one is roots, and the other, wings." This set will surely make your little one deeply rooted with a sense of knowledge about his/her personal history. "Before I was Born" is one of the ultimate legacies that you can give to your child. Let your child read over and over again how you and your spouse have met. Let your son/daughter have a record of things about his/her parents which can be passed on to several generations. How about your life as a couple before your baby is born? There’s a page in this set where you can write about it as well. “Before I was Born” will let your child cherish those memories you have while he/she was still in your tummy.

This set includes pages for your wedding day, first ultrasound, baby shower, and so much more. It also includes variation for Mum/Mom pages. There are 10 QPs plus seven with variations and two bonus QPs for front and back covers--my little surprise/gift for you (just in case you would want to make it into a storybook-type album).

Buy now for only $5


Hello! Word, Hello! Baby

This set contains the entries you usually found in typical Baby Book album but with interesting narration written by me (yup, in case some of you do not know I'm also a writer).

This set includes page where you can put your baby's picture side by side with the photo of the person your family initially thought as the baby's look-a-like. It contains QP pages with six bonus pages for baby boy/girl variations and two bonus QPs for front cover (boy/girl) giving you 18 QPs. This one also comes with freebie QPs ideally for the storybook's back-cover, so there are actually 20 QPs that you can use from this set alone.

Buy now for only $5.00


Here are the add-ons that are included in the download. These are variations so you can use them for your baby boy (the ones in the previous preview are for your baby girl).

Now, here's the freebie for everyone which is supposedly for the back cover of this baby book (Hello! World, Hello! Baby) but you can use it on its own.

Thank your for your interest but this freebie is no longer available.

My First Book of Records

Your child does not need to be in Guiness just to hold a record. Your baby can have his/her "First Book of Records". This set is perfect for your child's precious "firsts" memories. From his first day at home to his first hair cut as well as first holidays, baptism/dedication down to the first birthday celebration--this set is a must have for every child, in fact, for every individual.

Buy now for only $5.00


Here are five extra holiday pages, just in case you're celebrating these holidays and have pictures of your baby to scrap. They are already included in the download. All in all you've got 20 12"x12" QPs just for this set alone--plus two freebie QPs, so that will give you 22 QPs in all.

Now, for the freebie which is for everyone. Again this is ideally for the back cover of this baby book set (My First Book of Records) but you can use it on its own.

88 items for $8.88 available on 08-08-08

So, what's this all about?

First things first...

August 8, 2008 or 08-08-08 will mark the opening of Beijing Olympics. Watching the Olympic opening or closing ceremony is one of my dreams. Another dream that I have in my heart is to be able to see the Seven Wonders of the World--The Great Wall of China is on top of the list. So, imagine how much I desire to be in Beijing on that date--it's like shooting two birds at the same time.

Last year, I told my husband about it, since it's our anniversary week and he usually treat me with an out-of-town trip I gave him the option. He's been to China several times--Nanjing, Shanghai, etc. but never to Beijing. DH wants to fulfill my dream but he would not be able to arrange the trip. He said he'll just shoulder the expenses and I have to do the rest--contact the travel agency, arrange accommodation though RCI, and other options, plane ticket and yes, renew my passport that expired late last year. It seemed like I have a lot of thing to do but it's a once-in-a-lifetime event in my life so I'm willing to hurdle everything--opppsss. But then so many things happened and I wasn't able to arrange the trip--and when I thought I'm ready for the trip, it's already too late. It was only last week that I was able to renew my passport. My heart still aches for I wouldn't be at the Beijing Olympics on 08-08-08 but DH always console me by saying some athletes have even back-out because Beijing is so polluted and they are more concern of their health.

Next in line...

Last year, my party shoppe closed down because I wasn't able to attend to it personally. It's in our province and 100 km away from where we're staying. I was really wondering how I was able to manage it for two years going there as often as I can. It broke my heart to let it go but then I have more important things to attend to, I have no choice but to give it up. That's when I discovered digital scrapbooking.

I used to make layouts before but there was no elements in them, they are mostly collage or "book-style" layouts. Early this year after making so many QPs for Netta, I thought I wanted to try something new, so I bought my first commercial use bundle from Netta's CVDs at scrap-n-tag, then I bought one after another from different stores. A month passed by and I still couldn't squeeze in my head what theme I would want to work on. I would want to make a teddy bear kit because it's one item that I love to collect. I also wanted to make a wedding kit but I've never seen commercial use stuffs to include in it such as ring, bouquet, etc. Since we sometimes cover weddings as hobbyist photographers, I extracted one from our personal stock photos. Then, after going to the beach, I thought of a beach kit. I love cooking too, so I shifted to start a kitchen stuffs kit. But instead of buying CU items, I just decided to use my DSLR, take photos and extract the items that I would be needing. Soon there were so many extracted items that have been gathering cobwebs and dust in my hard drive and I just don't have complete a kit. Everything were just bits and pieces of something.

Now, it begins...

Last May, two things came to my mind, after buying a grab bag and I still cant finish a complete kit, I just decided it's time to limit buying them. Then, I thought would just pack the items that I extracted and sell them for commercial use. I guess, established designers and those who are more creative will be able to use them magnificently in their kits. So aside from those numerous extracted stuffs, I thought I would extract some more. I noticed that I don't have flowers in my stuffs. I looked at our photos and I saw this folder with some plants and flowers taken by either my sister, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, nieces, and DH. There were also some photos of different things in another folder. DH was the first one to own a digital camera in the family (six years ago) and everybody wanted to play with it, that's why we have a lot photos of inanimate objects. Also, when my sister moved to a far away province, she would ask me to buy her Christmas gifts for her inaanak (godchildren) and our nieces. Then, I would photographed each gift and email to her so that she will have an idea what I bought/gave to her inaanak. So, that's where all photos of the inanimate objects came about. I put these thing in a separate folder because I don't want to delete them but I don't think I would want to print them nor mix them up with my other photos either. I'm not really into flower-landscape-nature-object photography. I love portaits, I like capturing a person's expression more than mother nature's granduer. I want people...person...human being. Little did I realize that someday I will be able to use them...and yup, you'll see those scraps here.

Last June, I decided that I will offer them as CU items in my other blog and the release date will be the 4th day of July. I'm in the Philipppines and I would want to have that date memorable for me, LOL. If not for independence day, at least for the release of my first stuffs to be sold. But though the items were already extracted in June, I still have to package them and my mind was still hazy which one to include. I also have no idea how much it will cost and how many items will I put in that bundle. June became a busy month too. My niece was about to be dedicated, the other one celebrating her first birthday, then another will be seven years old. So what's my role in these events? As usual, I made the layouts for the invitations and tarpaulins, prepared the sourvenirs, etc. I was also the one who have them printed in commercial shoppes; send these items through door-to-door delivery (as they all live in the provinces). My sister is 12-hours drive away. Sometimes, I wish I have a personal assistant to do those stuffs for me, ROFL. Then a regular customer of my closed party needs shoppe requested me to cover her son's wedding. I could not say no because she has become a friend too. July was already fast approaching and I was a little disappointed that I wasn't able to attend to this matter. But DH said: "no one is pressuring you, no need to rush. Take your time, only you and I know about your July 4th plan."

So I covered my other niece's 7th birthday last July 5, the wedding last July 12 (I had the pre-nup photo-op alone prior to that event since DH was in Qatar at that time. I did a two-song audio visual presentation (AVP) for the reception). Afterwards, my mind is set to plan on this stuff.

Putting the pieces together...

Two weeks ago, when I was finally accepted the fact that we'll not gonna make it to Beijing this August, I just thought of doing something memorable because I'm sure I'll really cry on that day. Lightbulb Moment...tingggg! The "888" idea came along. I'll make that day memorable by offering 88 (I can't make 888 items at this time, LOL) Commercial Use items for $8.88 on 08-08-08. That's the fun and the pun intended. Everything fell into the right place: the price, the number of items, the date of release. So there you have it all, the history of my "MagicMaker Scraps". So we all have something to look forward too aside from the Beijing Olympics on that 08-08-08, don't we? Oh well, Ecclesiastes 3: 1 is very real to me at this time..."There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven." (And I'm still looking forward seeing the Great Wall of China and watch an Olympic game someday).

By the way, my passport is scheduled to be delivered on 08-08-08 too.

Now, Scroll down to see all the 88 items...

NOTE: 88 CU Items for $8.88 on 08.08.08 has already expired but you can buy the items individually starting Sept. 8, 2008.

I just started making templates. They are all layered PSD files and png files so that you may be able to use them in other programs. You may recolor them to suit your taste. I really would want to have a castle template--this one is loosely based on the Enchanted Kingdom (EK) entrance gate since I will add them in my layouts. Going to EK has become a yearly tradition to our family (cousins included) every December 31st.

The other templates are something that I thought you might be able to use so I included a stroller-baby kit, car-for boys' kit, bag-girls' kit and the cake-for party kits. The box and the book are my generic elements which you can use in any layout. The ferris wheel is a dream template come true, I gave a ferris wheel with frames to my Mom with our pictures in it and everybody loves it and I guess you may want it too. There's a separate frame only file, just in case, you don't want the heart frames, you may want to have stars, squares or round frames to replace the hearts. I guess, I've never seen them anywhere else.
