1980's Retro Fun Printable Scrapbooking Kit, My Muse

Welcome hybrid scrappers and other interested peeps!

I am SO, SO happy to show off The Cherry's and Made By Keuntje's printable scrapbooking pack. We had started with the templates.  Then it morphed into a huge digital collection and now evolved into a printable pack, too.  What a fantastic metamorphosis.   Hehehe...Let's take a peek, shall we?

All right!  All right!  You get 10 radically outrageous design papers on an 8x11 format so that anyone can print them, no matter the country in which you reside.  (I hope.)  The papers are in jpg format, as usual and like all off our products saved at 300 dpi for optimal quality and printing.

With your purchase, you'll also get 2 sheets of embellishments with over 2 dozen graphics.  These are also on an 8x11 sheet.  The embellishments like the words bits come on sheets of both png and jpg.  The journal or project life cards come on a sheet of 12x12 inches in png, so you can use them digitally or traditionally and we've also provided 3 separate jpg sheets for easy use.

Most of the elements are easy to cut by hand, if you don't have a fancy cutter or if our format doesn't work in your cutter.  You can decide to cut them out in blocks, leave a little of the white for a sticker effect or cut right to the edge.  Mix it up a little?!

I've made a video showing how I print these out with my Mac and Brother printer.  I also give tips for the best printing results.  I blogged that one up a while ago.  You might find it very helpful. 

Here are the packs up close.

This is obviously a mix of the printables and the digital collection.  I used a coordinating template and added a few of the bellies from the kit for this digital page. The templates are cool enough to use as quick pages.

Here's a step by step visual of how to print...


Look for your download.


I print from my preview.  It gives me more options and it almost always comes out perfect.

"Open With" and then "Preview".


Then go to "file" across the menu bar and choose "print".


For the best printing results, choose ALL of the right settings.  I chose "Print Settings".


and then choose the kind of paper you're using, if that's an option on your printer...sticker paper gives really nice results and of course glossy is best for your pics.


Another very important tip for printing is choosing "Fine" or "Best Results" selections.


My printer provides a spot for manual feeds.  Here I can insert just the paper I need.  When I played with these printables, I found it so much easier to work with a slightly rigid paper than the cheap, printer paper.  Especially, for fussy cutting and if you plan on using liquid adhesives, you'll definitely want rigid paper.  Think about the kind of weight you get when you purchase a pack from a well known company like, Graphic 45.

Check out some layouts and clusters I quickly put together to give you some ideas.








These are the templates.  You can purchase separately as well.
