$1 Mini Book and CD/DVD Ornament Templates, FREE tutorial!

Hi Friends,

Since I have already told you about my sales for the rest of the month, I will not post about each individual sale, every day. However, I did want to share a couple of hybrid templates I made, that would make wonderful Christmas gifts for family and friends. Both are on sale today only, for just $1.00 each!


Mini Book Christmas Ornament

Make a fun Mini Book Christmas Ornament with this single page template! Very convenient for printing, and making copies. Free tutorial included.


With a few alterations, this template would be great for any subject or occasion. I use these books all the time, with my preschool kids, to reinforce our lesson plans. They love them so much, we are making this version, as our gift to the parents.

The entire mini book, all 8 pages, are on the one page, Mini book Template is 11×8.5, 300 DPI, in PSD and PNG format. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap4Hire, and Commercial Use. Shadows on preview for display purposes only.


Christmas Ornament CD/DVD Holder

Use this template pack to create a Christmas ornament that holds your CD or DVD!


I make DVDs for my preschool parents, each year, of all the pictures and scrapbook pages I made through out the year, about the time I spend with their children. About two years ago, I started making these ornaments to hold them, the parents love them so much, I now make them for grandparents too!

I also make DVDs of all our family photos though the year. My mother looks forward to getting the ornament as much as she does the DVD.


This pack includes 2 (front and back) 11×8.5, 300 DPI templates, in PSD and PNG format, and the below tutorial, on how to assemble your ornament. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap For Hire, Scrap For Others, and Commercial Use. Quick Page and Creative Team friendly. Shadows on templates for preview purposes only.

CD/DVD Christmas Ornament

To assemble your ornament.

1) Print on heavy duty cardstock.

There is a small amount of extra space on the bottom circle of each or my templates. This is to provide a cut bleed area.

2) Use circle cutters to cut out the front and back of your ornament.

3) You need a strong adhesive to ensure your CD Ornament stays together, when the weight of the CD is added, and it hangs on a tree.

To leave an opening, for you CD to slide in and out, do not apply adhesive to about five twelfths of the ornament, on one side, 12 and 5 on the clock. Apply adhesive to the underside, outmost edge, and with backs facing each other, stack.

4) Punch hole for ribbon

5) Thread ribbon through hole, creating a loop for hanging

6)  Add your CD/DVD and your ornament is done.


Print layers separately, then add Pop-Dots between the layers, and stack,  to add depth.

Instead of using the provided word art, use a photo, baby’s handprint or details/journaling about what is on your CD/DVD.

Here is a similar ornament, I made a couple of years ago.

I hope your enjoy the Mini Book, and CD/DVD Ornament templates!

Have a great rest of the day!!

New Products and a Freebie

Hi Friends!

I hope the month of December, is off to a great start for you. For me it is a wait and see, I have been having back problems since March. Things were really bad over the summer, then cleared up for a bit in August. Constant tingling, is so much better, than non stop pain. However, the pain resurfaced last month. So, I stared the month of December, getting another round of  steroid injections. So far so good, I hope it sticks this time, if not, my doctors are talking surgery, before the end of the year. The thought of back surgery, has always made me nervous, and I really do not want to miss out on spending time with my family, or have to slow down, on making templates for you. Luckily, I had most of this weeks new releases, pretty much done, before I started hurting again. I made lots of Christmas themed templates, as well as a couple of collaborations.

New Products are 35% off for a limited time!

All my new templates, in this first section, are currently available at Nuthouse Scraps, and are 300 DPI, in PSD and PNG format. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap For Hire, Scrap For Others, and Commercial Use. Quick Page and Creative Team friendly. Shadows on templates for preview purposes only.

12×12 Templates




Horizontal 11×8.5 Templates

Season’s Greetings

The designers at Nuthouse Scraps, have been hard a work, making  a wonderful Christmas collection – Season’s Greetings comes in several mini kits from our designers and add ons – you decide if you pick some favorites or get them all! I made these layout, and cluster templates, as my Season’s Greetings contribution. I really enjoyed making the clusters, I think I see more of them in my future. These templates, and clusters, coordinate beautifully, with my Merry Christmas templates, shown above. Please note, however, that my Season’s Greetings collection, is PU/S4H/S4O only.






The Nuthouse Scraps  CU Store Grab Bag for Winter & Sports, is now available. We made it useful for designers AND scrappers. Our December “Grab A Nut” turned out really beautiful and is filled with 10 CU packs for your designing (and scrapping) needs for Winter!

I have a Snow themed, 12×12 template pack, that includes 2 layout templates, 10 extra word art frames, and snowflake elments, in the Nuthouse Scraps December Grab-a-Nut. I have been enjoying working with waves lately, if you have not already figured that out! :0)


Coming Soon

If my back holds out, I have several more holiday themed items, on my to-do list. I plan to release a couple of hybrid projects next week, namely a Christmas ornament CD/DVD holder, and a mini ornament book. I also have Hanukkah, Kwanza, and a couple more Christmas themed layout and card templates, in the works. If you celebrate a holiday this time of year, that I have not mentioned, and would like to see templates for that theme, just let me know. I am always happy to do what I can to help out. I understand it is not always easy, to find templates that fit your needs. I also hope to post some layouts made with MyMemories soon, I have been working on them off and on. Last but not least, I plan to post products to my shops at Bella Zingaro Studio and Heartfelt Perfections later in the week. Again, if my back holds out.

Four Templates for $4.00

Today, I want to share with you one of my newest four template packs, Flower Power, available at Nuthouse Scraps for just $4.00.

When I create multiple layouts of a single event, I like those layouts to coordinate. I often use the same paper and elements through out, and simply switch things up a bit, with each new layout. I also like the look of double page layouts where a element and/or paper is carried across both pages. I feel this design process, makes my layouts more cohesive. It certainly makes designing the pages faster, and easier, as I don’t have to choose a bunch of new papers, and elements each time I make a layout. I have designed my Flower Power templates to give you this same ease of use.

This template pack includes four coordinating 12×12, 300 DPI, templates in PSD and PNG format. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap4Hire, and Commercial Use. Quick Page and Creative Team friendly.

I love to see what you create with my templates, post your creation, made with my templates, on My Facebook Fan Page, and you could win a coupon for $2.00 off your next purchase!
