Today I am sharing a quick and easy way of using your scraps. I often have piece[s] of cardstock where I test ink colours and effects on. These then become card backgrounds or I use them on my layouts cut into tags and even die-cut shapes out of them. Today I am showing you how I use it as a quick card background.

Did you know that Typepad is home for many writers and authors? If you have written a book, your blog is a great way to promote it! Today we want to share with you how a few Typepad bloggers promote their books on their blog.
Create A Typelist
Church of the Churchless created a Books Typelist to list their books in their sidebar with a small thumbnail image.
A Typelist can be created by going to Library > Typelist > Add a Typelist, and select "Books" for the type of Typelist you want to create. After you give your list a name, click the "create a Typelist" button. There are two options to add your book to the list - enter the URL of it's listing from another website like Amazon, or you can manually enter the book title or link. The "Notes" field is optional but Weaverly takes advantage of this option by adding a brief description of their books.
You can add your new Typelist to your blog sidebar by going to Design > Content > Categories > Your Typelists. Under "Modules", select your new Typelist and add it to your sidebar.
Abscondo has a link to their eBook in their Navigation Bar as well as larger images uploaded in their sidebar. To add a direct link in your Navigation Bar, go to Design > Content > Navigation Bar - click the pencil icon to edit this module. In the pop-up window, insert your book link.
Leigh Kramer also uses Sidebar Images to promote her book. Linking to a larger image in your sidebar is a great way to catch your readers attention. Upload an image in your sidebar by selecting the "Add a sidebar image" module at Design > Content. There is an option in the settings to add a link to your image.
Create A Page
If you want to share more information about your book(s), creating a Page is a great tool to add additional images and links for your book. Go to Posts > Pages > New Page. A page is not the same as a blog post as it is not date driven. Its link can be used as a stand alone page you can link to in your Navigation Bar and sidebar.
