"Lasting Moments" Kit and a Sampler Freebie

Here's your second kit for this month. It's called "Lasting Moments" which is named after the photo and video coverage line of my party needs shoppe that closed down last year, LOL. I made it from two of my favorite colors: yellow and lilac. Next week, I'm going to give you the cluster border set for October. I hope you enjoy this one. It can be used for your heritage LOs.

"Slumber Party" Kit and a Sampler Freebie

Why is there a kit here? I have so many commercial use items that I bought; downloaded as freebies; templates that I made digitally during my spare time or stuffs that I have photographed and extracted. As you have read in my first entry, those items that I photographed and extracted were the reasons why Magicmaker-Scraps is born.

When I started Magicmaker-Scraps Club about two weeks ago, I thought I would only give you "QPs with a Twist". My first reason is because that's how I started in digital scrapbooking and I thought that's what I do best. The second reason why I only settle for giving "QPs with a Twist" is that I am a CT to several designers and I rather have you buy kits from them, LOL.

Anyway, these last few weeks, I received invitations to sell in digi-scrapping stores. As I reads the terms, I wasn't sure if I will be able to come up with the number of kits required per month. During that time, I'm still finishing Cinder's Wish and I still don't know if I will be able to finish it that week. I've also started my part for ADSDesigners Collab kit for October (both are already done now) and I don't think I can meet the requirements if I will have deadlines. Every month, I also join KimB's Color Challenge at DSO, hence, I have two sure kits in my hands monthly. However, there are times that I'm uneasy as some ideas for digiscrapping kits come to mind--so I have to work on it. So, this month, I have done several kits. I have so many freebie kits already (LOL) so, I just decided to give the others exclusively for Magicmaker-Scraps members only. Last night, I sent a preview of the kit to members and asked them if they are willing to swap one QP set to a kit and early this morning as I wake up, more than half of them have already replied "yes"--hence, I already have a consensus. I didn't expect for the reply to come that quick so I gave them until Saturday to decide. I guess, they all got excited when they saw the kit so they promply replied.

I guess, two kits per month won't hurt, so here's the first one it's called "Slumber Party".

I was reading an old issue of Family Circle this week and I've already read most of the articles in it except the Slumber Party Tips for Parents. You see, I've never experienced joining one in my childhood--it's not popular or should I say, we never do that here in the Philippines. Not that I didn't sleep over my friends house when I was a teen-ager but mostly, I slept there because my school was far away from home and I have no transportation going back home. So, if there are school activities that will go beyond 6:00 p.m. that means I have to ask a classmate who lives nearby if I could stay at their place. You see, I'm a barrio girl.

Anyway, going back to the article, since I have nothing more to read (LOL) I read it and I found it so exciting. I've watched some american movies/series showing teenagers spending slumber parties but in the articles it tackles one for those ages 7-10. Sorry, but I didn't know that slumber party is also popular for younger girls too. Maybe, that's the reason why the article was written because it is quite a responsibility for the host to take care of several kids in one roof overnight. I enjoyed the article so much and I was so engrossed with it that's why I thought of making a kit. I haven't seen a kit about "Slumber Parties" or maybe there are several kits that I haven't seen. I guess, if your little girl has attended one and she has a picture of that, you will be able to use this. If not, the kit can be generic and all the papers and elements can be used for other girly layouts as well.

The kit's elements are at 300 DPI and the paper size is 12x12 also at 300 DPI.

Cluster Borders Extra

I have extra Cluster Borders for you. I hope you will be able to use them too. The fairytale one can be used for wedding invitation cover which I did for my friends. The invitation was a gift for my friends who got married and I know they will be delighted to have the design be shared to others. The one with the cottage is something I made and I love it so much but I don't know in which layout they may be appropriate, so I hope you'll be able to use them in one of your projects. These are "extras". I'll give you the second set on October.

The photos were taken by Lani, the groom's sister, and she only used point and shoot digital camera for this one. I guess, the photos are great and complemented the cluster border very well.

Now, here are your extra cluster borders. I hope one of you can send me a project/layout using these cluster borders. I would love to see what you have made out of these stuffs.

A Woman's World (QPs with a Twist) and a QP Freebie

Here's the counterpart of "About a Man" and it's called "A Woman's World". If you've seen the "midwife" and "civic volunteer" titles on the preview, don't be dismayed, it's only for preview purposes. I was thinking of my Mom when I made that preview--she's a midwife and yes, she loves to volunteer for civic works and cooperatives. In fact, my parents met through the red cross. The original QPs don't have those titles. However, you'll have a separate download folder for different titles that you may put in those pages. I still have to upload the bonus QPs (back cover) as well as the "titles" folder for this set. DH and I are going to the province to visit his parents in a little while and I just asked him if I can upload the set and post it here first. We'll be back tomorrow and I'll upload the rest.

Meanwhile, enjoy "A Woman's World" QP set as this is especially for us, women--so far, it's my favorite among the QP sets that I have made. I love all the laces, flowers, ribbons and other embellishments. "About A Man" is the most difficult QP set I've ever done. In fact, I had doubts in the beginning if I would be able to complete the set since it's so difficult to find a man's kit. I thank God that it's already done and this next set (A Woman's World) was just so easy to do since there are a lot of kits and commercial use items that I can use for this.

Well, now we both have a storybook to give to your parents for Christmas. My Mom will surely love this one. I'm going to print it in either 8"x8" or 6"x6" (I will just resize them) bragbook so that it can fit in a bag. Knowing my mother, she always brings my layouts whenever she goes and she always shows them to everyone, LOL--even to those whom she had just met. Well, that's why it's called a bragbook. I'll take a picture of that bragbook and post it here once it's done. It takes more than a week to bind them. I would want to make the one for my Dad too (he's gone now) but I still have to find some pictures of him with his parents and siblings.

About a Man (QPs with a Twist) and a Freebie

The first set of QP for September is called About a Man. My Dad was on my mind as I made this set. Since he is already gone, I thought of making a storybook/bragbook about him so that the next generation will have a knowledge of the grandfather that they never have the chance to meet.

This set is intended for the men in our lives with the different roles they play on each page. It's great as a birthday gift to that man you love so much. If you see a page in the preview that have "game master" and "engineer" on it, don't be sad, as the QP do not have those titles on them (it's only for preview purposes) but included in the download is a set of titles professions for you to choose the title to put in those QPs. If I have missed a title/profession in the list or you want me to add a title, please email me and I would be glad to make it (for members only). Members also need to download the freebie to add to their QP set.

Cluster Borders Set 1

What are "Cluster Borders"? As joined several tubes membership these last few months, I fell in-love with those lovely tubes. I intend to use them in making QPs but I realized that the filesizes/images are not as big as those of the digital scrapping kits and they seemed to dwarfed when I put them in 12x12 QPs. I don't want to resize them because they may become pixelated.

So, I just thought of using them in making cards and invitations. I like the outcome of my first project with my Cluster Borders" and I told myself: why not offer these as well for my club members. Aside from cards and invitations, these “Cluster Borders” are also ideal for bookmarks, desk calendars, calling cards, stationeries, photo art, digital layouts, web designs, and other hybrid projects, etc. These are scraps-for-hire/others friendly.

The width of each “Cluster Borders” is 7 inches only. very much suited for a 5"x"7 project intended for printing. You can also resize it for a 4"x6" bragbook. It is not suited for 12”x12” digital scrapbook projects intended for printing since I don’t want to stretch the sizes of the original graphics as they may affect the quality of the image when printed. However, they can be used for digital scrapbook layouts that are intended to be posted in galleries, blogs or websites. The can also be use as base for frames.

Here are some of the layouts that I made using the "Cluster Borders".

A birthday invitation for my niece
(balloons, wand, crown and wings not included)

A photo art/layout with my nephew and his friend

Aren't they cute? I love these photos. I'm sure these kids will treasure this card that I made for them.

Now, for the first set of Cluster Borders available only for magicmaker-scraps members.
