Time for another Feature Friday! Every so often I will feature a Digital Scrapbook Kit on my blog and feature some layouts created with the Digital Scrapbook Kit as well as some products that co-ordinate well with the Featured Digital Scrapbook Kit. I am hoping featuring some kits with some layouts will help inspire you to use the kit some more if you have it already, or maybe even buy it if you don’t already have it. ::innocent smile::

A two page layout of Jasmine doing ballet.
Journaling: Jasmine, Today I was able to watch you at your ballet lesson because it was parents day. I love watching you do your ballet as you just seem to have a natural ability and grace to do it. YOu have the perfect build for it as well and I can imagine you doing well at it for many years to come. Of course being the proud Mum that I am , I managed to take over 400 photos In just an hour so I had better get scrapping!
1 had always wanted to do ballet when I was young, so I guess in a way I am also living vicariously through you. Jasmine, I am so proud of you and know I will be there to support you as long as you want to keep dancing! April 2011

One of the most fundamental aspects of digital scrapbooking is being able to unzip the files you download. Read on to find out how to zip and unzip zip files.
Creating and Extracting Zip Files In digital scrapbooking there are many occasions where you might have to deal with creating and extracting (opening) zip files. Most digital scrapbook kits you download, whether you buy them or whether they are freebies come in zipped files. Zip files are normally a way of compressing files to keep down the size of them as well as keeping them together in a single file rather than several separate ones.
With graphic or image files, zips do not normally reduce the file size much, if at all, however they are a very good way of keeping a collection of files together to enable easier downloading and uploading on the web. Windows provides it’s own zipping facilities, but if you do not have Windows there are several zipping programs out there which you may be able to use instead. For the purpose of this tutorial, since most people tend to use Windows we will explain how to zip and extract files with Windows Explorer. Extracting Zip Files Firstly open Windows Explorer Start> All Programs> Windows Explorer Locate the zip file you wish to extract the files from and right click on the file. From the menu that is displayed, choose Extract All.
NOTE: Double clicking on a zip file will show you what is inside the zip file but will not extract it’s contents.
The Windows extraction wizard will open. Click on Next to continue and you will come to the window below.
Here you can select a destination for the files to be extracted to. You can click browse to find a folder on your hard drive, or type the path of where you want the files to be extracted to. The default is a folder named the same as your zip file, usually in the folder the zip is contained in. If you are happy to have your files extracted to the default directory and folder, click on next to continue.
You zip file will begin to extract and display a progress bar as below.
This completes the extraction of your files, check the box next to ‘Show extracted files’ if you wish to have a window open showing the extracted files.
If you selected the ‘Show Extracted Files’ checkbox. A window explorer window will open at the location of your extracted files.
Creating a Zipped File
Firstly open Windows Explorer Start> All Programs> Windows Explorer Add all the files you wish to zip into a folder. Select the items that you wish to add to a zip by ctrl clicking to select each file individually or click on the top of a list of files, hold down the shift key and click on the bottom file in a list of files.
Once your files are selected, right click on one of the files and choose, Send To> Compressed (Zipped) Folder
Your zipped file will appear among the files you zipped. Your zipped files are now ready to upload to the web, send to someone else or do what you will with!
