A New Blog Freebie

I was just reading a post on our P52 support group about the soccer ball template.

I tried to recreate something similar in Memory Mixer but there is only an octagon for the shapes and I needed a hexagon so it didn't work. But, I always like a challenge so I figured there must be another way. So, I ended up in Photoshop and created a PNG frame for you. All you need to do is add a circular photo box under each opening (well create them on top first, then bring the frame to the front). Have fun! You can grab it here.

New Product - Page Builders with Yin Designs

A few years ago when I used primarily Photoshop to scrapbook I was drawn to Yin Designs templates. She has an amazing ability to place multiple photos on a layout and her curved frames added a fabulous final touch. When I switched over to creating Page Builders I thought of her and wondered if it would be possible to bring some of those amazing templates to you. She has stepped back a bit from designing, keeping very busy with other things and only creating for her personal scrapbook, but she still has a huge, wonderful library full of templates for sale so I figured I would approach her. We talked a bit and she agreed to do this collaboration. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was when she agreed to bring you some of her fun, fabulous layouts.  As always, add the papers and embellishments of your choice, slide the photos into the photo boxes and you have a finished page. Check out some of the great layouts my Creative Team has come up.

These Page Builders work best in MyMemories VS 3 as you can just slide the photo over the frame and they will insert into your photo box. If you are using VS2 you will need to move the frames to the back, add your photos and then bring the frames to the front again. If you are a photoshop user check out her blog for a huge selection of PSD templates!

Yin has been great to work with, here is a note from her:

Hi everyone,

So glad to get to be introduced to this great community of scrapbookers! It's completely thanks to Barb that my humble templates have a chance to be available in this software, thank you so much Barb!
All my templates start from pages I made for my own scrapbook pages, so they are designed with real photos in mind, and I hope you'll find them working great with yours. Hope you have fun creating and making memories! Yin


Here is the entire set in a combo pack, or you can purchase the mini sets. Each set comes with the frames.  Check out the product page to see some great CT samples.

We hope you enjoy these templates. I’d love to see what you create with them, as always please feel free to post your page on My Facebook page. Happy Scrapbooking!
