Express Yourself is Bundled, On Sale & a New Freebie Available

The first template I designed was for a layout I made with the Express Yourself kits from Created by Jill Scraps. Little did I know at the time, that template would open up a whole new world for me. There were several kits available for purchase, but it was not until this past week could you buy the collection in a bundle.

When they were originally released, I designed this layout:

To celebrate the release, I have taken my layout and designed a template for free download. There are two versions. The first version mimics the look I used on my layout with bold black strokes framing every element and paper.

The second version removes the black strokes allowing the user to customize the look.

One of the things I love most about this template is that it puts journal cards front and center. Rather than simply being a place to jot information or fill in the background, the journal cards are a prominent focal point of the page. You are not limited to journal cards, you can use your favorite papers to fill in each spot.

Enjoy the templates. Make sure to pick up Express Yourself, the bundled version. It is already significantly discounted, but it will be on sale until the end of December. The price is unbelievable. You can purchase it at Ginger Scraps or Go Digital Scrapbooking.

If you missed my first layout and template from this kit, take a look at "Express Yourself and a New Template Freebie." This is what you will find at that post:

If you did not get here via Jill's blog, be sure to head over and pick up the Christmas coupon she has given out. You can pick it up at "New Bundle, a little extra holiday savings and a freebie!!!"

One last item. If the Created by Jill Scraps Facebook page hits 3500 likes, she will be releasing a new mini kit as a free download for her fans. We are only 9 people away as of this writing. Head over and hit like so we all get something new!
