Jewel Christmas with OrnamentsTemplate Share (with freebies)

Below is the link to download a page I made using the Jewel Christmas collection.  I have had to remove the Creative Memories content, however the template does include a few freebies I made in Photoshop...

 I made the ornaments by creating thin rectangles, (stripes actually), and filled those and the background paper with complimenting colors.  I then used the Ellipse tool to cut out a circle, (after grouping all the strips and background together), I then used the Sphereize filter to get the rounded look.  It doesn't take as long as it sounds, do one and make a copy, then use the copy to change the colors, and copy and paste it to get one to cut, I hope that makes sense, if not, feel free to ask!  The gold Christmas Blessings was made in Photoshop.
I used the shaped edge cutter under the Cut & Fill Tab/Straight to get the punched arched edge.  I also used the 3D filter on it about 3 or 4 times to make it stand out.  For the ribbons you can either fill them with paper or a color then apply a surface to it, (under the Format tab) if you would like to.    I removed the shadow from the mats and so forth on the template so you can do as you like with that, (and the 3D filter.)   Don't forget, you can add shadow as many times as you like, you just have to flatten after each time you add it. 
 When you download the page you will need to save it immediately upon downloading, do not try to open it, and save it as is.  You can either save it to a folder by itself or to your desk top, wherever you can easily find it.  You will then open SBC and Import the page.  This one is a 12 x 12 and will only go into a 12 x 12 SBC page.  You can shrink it to something with the same aspect
ratio, such as an 8x8, but you will have to begin with a 12 x 12.
If you like the page I would love to hear from you, please leave a comment or my e-mail is tgillespie67@aol.com, please put CM in the subject line so I know it's a legit e-mail.  I would love to know what templates you like, what you like about them, etc, for future reference.  I would also love for you to visit my web site, www.mycmsite.com/tammygillespie, or my Facebook group, Tamela's Scrapbooking Divas.
Enjoy it and have a great day!
