It had to happen at the end of the day yesterday just as I was printing out Mom’s daily dose of the latest news from Manila — I stumbled onto Epson’s Creative Zone where there are actual 12×12 scrapbook layouts and pages to download and print. (Lucky me, I have access to color laser printers that print on 12×18 sheets.) Even if you’re doing your digital scrapbooking on color bubblejet printers, you can still download a ton of resources like letters, embellishments, textures, etc.
I found the Picture CDs of Angel’s first photos last night (although I forgot to pick them up from the kitchen counter even if I put them next to my cellphone so I won’t forget!) and I have browsed through the more recent months which are saved in 3 different USB keys. They’re all here and I can start printing the initial layouts and get this scrapbook moving.
There are photos which I will have printed out by the online developers (my personal choice is WINKFLASH because they offer 99Cents flat shipping) — and I’m uploading the photographs in batches so I can have them printed out in one slew.
I am piecing together or stitching together the pages which don’t print the full 12 inches across but I’m confident they will come out seamless.
Mom will definitely be floored.. I can’t wait..hopefully after the weekend I will be able to post some initial layouts to share here.
