First up - Backing up:
This is just a friendly reminder to take some time (TODAY) to back up your photos and scrapbooking items. I back up my photos and scrap goods to 2 external hard drives AND I use Carbonite which backs my junk up automatically when I am not on my computer. Why so much, you ask? Because I would be devastated to lose my memories, my hobbies, my life. I gladly fork over $50 per year for unlimited back up with Carbonite. Are they foolproof? I doubt it. But having peace of mind knowing that I have my stuff backed up at another location is worth $50 to me! Do yourself a favor and back up your computer. TODAY. :)
BTW, here is a blog article from a site I trust that has a little info on externals. Here is part 2 of that article.
Happy backing up!
Second: Template Tuesday! I have almost 500 people downloading my free templates each week! Thanks so much for stopping by, everybody! Make sure and check today's template download for a coupon to my store!
Here is my example of today's free template:
|All items from my Garden Lovers kit coming to Owl Tree Studio on March 4|
1. White Space: White space is the area(s) of a layout that is has no text or graphics. It gives the viewer's eye a chance to rest.
2. Proximity: The photo and papers are spatially connected to each other because of their proximity. This placements gives a unified look to the layout, and unity creates a feeling of wholeness.
3. Repetition: I repeated the same colors throughout the entire layout, but I used different textures and elements to keep things from getting too boring.
Here is today's free template (download it HERE - expires March 15, 2011)
