Woo-Hoo! What a ride! Thanks to all of you for downloading my free blog train gift! Some of you might be saying to yourselves, "but I don't really want to take the time to make a hybrid album." Well, you can still use this kit to make the pages and then mount them on 12"x12" backgrounds! I don't print 12"x12" layouts. A couple of reasons: the paper is very expensive, it takes a lot of ink to print them and many times the album size is too large for a bookshelf. I create all my pages at 12"x12" and then reduce them to 8"x8" for printing. I then trim the printed layouts and place them in page protectors in 8"x8" albums.

Another way would be to create your hybrid page, mount it on a plain coordinating background and go to one of the sites that offers photo books. There are many styles and sizes to choose from, and with a few adjustments you can put your layouts into their templates and voila! you have a beautiful hardcover book!

Happy Scrappin' my friends and HERE is your link to the last download! SORRY, THIS LINK HAS EXPIRED.

    Thank you again, your generosity is very much appreciated.

  8. Thank you so much for your lovely, generous gifts! I don't scrap 12x12, either, but I opt for 8 1/2 x 11 pages so I can use regular notebooks with sheet protectors. Some of these album pages will end up as 3x3 embellishments on my pages or as journaling blocks or who knows what - they are so versatile, especially the way you have sent them to us!

    I Love my 8x8 albums even thought I have the capability to print 12x12 with my R1800 Istill print mostly 8x8. so much cheaper. I found that you just start with 8x8 and pull thoose papers down to 68% and they fit perfect...
