A little change to make things interesting this week.

Download the free kit from Scrapgirls. You don't have to register, links on description page of kit.

Find a free template in the freebies section of Oscraps boutique. Again, you don't have to register, links on description page.

Let's see what you come up with!!

Julie, thanks for the links.

I think I understand what each Scrapgirl file contains, except for SG_ANarrative_Alpha_WA. File size: 54.6 MB What is in this one?

What would be contained in this file: SG_ScrapSimple_Instructions file size: 27.0 MB. It sure
seems like a large file for instructions :)

It looks like everything would add up to near 200 mb.

SG_1_LicenseTerms File size: 0.0 MB
SG_ANarrative_Emb File size: 53.0 MB
SG_ANarrative_Paper File size: 55.9 MB

I'm still looking at the oscrapes freebies. A lot there !

Thanks

Hi Betty, the instruction file is a 191 page pdf file that is an instruction manual on doing scrapping things in Photoshop and Elements as well as many other things. They were just nice enough to include this emanual in the free kit. You don't have to download it if you don't want to but if you want to learn more about scrapping and some other things to do in Photoshop and Elements it is a great resource to learn from.

The other files sizes are really not that large considering. You have a file for papers that is 55.9 MB. This folder contains 10 papers that are 12x12 inch at 300 ppi. These papers are not solid colors therefore like every other thing you do in Photoshop or Elements, the more detail you add the larger the file size is going to be. The same thing goes for the elements folder for the kit. They are pretty and colorful and detailed elements. You wouldn't think an element file would be as large as it can be but you need to keep in mind that elements are .png files and all the blank space around the actual image does count in the ppi sizing of the file.

I hope this helps you understand the size of the files. You have been downloading from Oscraps so I am sure you see that those freebie kits aren't as large as this one but you also probably don't get as large of a kit with as many papers or elements. Not to mention the Scrap Simple Manual.

Julie, thanks for the links. I'm trying to get back into scrapping and enjoyed doing this. Thanks also for doing all the wonderful templates every Tuesday.

I did mine half of challenge. I used a different kit for the template I downloaded because the one at Scrap Girls didn't go with the photos I wanted to use.

Thanks Julie. Yes, the photos go with it well. That's why I didn't use the Narrative kit.
