Not much in the way of freebies today.  But I read in the Scrap Orchard newsletter that iNSD, or National Scrapbooking Day, is coming up soon!  i.e. LOTS of freebies and sales!  I googled it and it is the first Saturday in May.  Yes!  I thought I would miss it because we are moving, but I'll still have a couple of days to download all of the goodies.  Right now the Lilypad, one of my favorite stores, is having a storewide 30% off sale.  Not great considering their kits are very expensive, but they rarely have sales better than that, so I would go for it if you have something on your wishlist there.  Since there weren't any good freebies out today, I made my own for you.  I wanted to have the Easter kit done by now, but that didn't happen, so today you get a quickpage and a template using the kit.

As you may know, Facebook will force everyone to change to the new timeline format this Wednesday, March 28.  I'm not a fan (where is everything?), but since we have no choice, we can at least make the best of the changes.  One of the new things is a huge place behind your profile picture to place a cover photo, kind of like the one at the top of this blog.  Facebook sets it up as just a picture, but if you are like me and you don't have any nice-looking skinny horizontal photos, then you can always turn to Photoshop for help.  Here's what I created.
I'm sure that with this new change, many digital scrapbook designers will be coming out with templates and quick pages to sell for people who can't or won't create their own.  If you read Tuesday's post, then you already know how I feel about templates.  Google "facebook timeline cover photo" to see what other creative people have already done.  I'm sure many other good examples will surface soon. To get you through until you make your own or come up with the next clever idea, I have some templates for you to download.  They are not fancy and not creative (I'm in a creativity rut).  The point is to get you started and you can add whatever you want to them to make them cute.
Download the templates here.
Be sure to check in next week when I put up my new spring kit!!!!!!!
As far as other freebies go, Oscraps is celebrating a birthday starting this weekend.  That means that they will be doing a blog hop (i.e. free stuff) starting Sunday and probably have good sales.
