Bye-Bye Quiet Books

Update: Please see Simply Fresh Designs DropBox for Download of quiet books.

The unfortunate news for today is thus: I cannot continue to share the quiet books with content from lds.org. Although I’ve tried very carefully to be honest and follow the lds.org terms of use, it appears the LDS Intellectual Property Division didn’t agree. They contacted me and said that images and text from lds.org are for individuals to create their own projects but not to distribute to others. Sharing or distributing anything I create using their images didn’t meet their terms of use, even though I wasn’t making any money.

Also, for your information, the IP Division said that printing quiet books, which contain lds.org content, through a professional print shop, such as Costco, was fine, as long as they were for immediate family only. The sharing of files with others was the violation.

Bottom line, I am having to indefinitely pull all posts and files for Quiet Books and Primary Sharing Time Monthly Themes. The LDS Church does have a process to request permission to use their content in this manner, and I plan to look into that, but I’m not holding my breath that such approval will ever come to pass.

So – for now. I apologize. I’m sad because I know thousands of you around the world enjoyed these quiet books. I feel selfish keeping them all to myself. I hope you can continue the tradition by creating your own books for your families. I’d be happy to create other quiet books in the future with original text and artwork (anyone out there want to volunteer to be the artist?!)… but we’ll see how things go after I have my baby in August.

Keep checking back for updates and new items going into the shop soon.

Quiet Books – Prophets and Apostles

Update: Please see Simply Fresh Designs DropBox for Download of quiet books. In 2015, 3 new apostle pages were added to this book.

Welcome back for Merry Monday. We’re sneaking it in late at night here. It was a busy day on the home front.

I’m excited about today’s quiet book freebie. With General Conference for the LDS Church being held this past weekend, the lives and messages of Prophets and Apostles has been in the forefront of my mind. I know there are oodles of LDS Apostle Info Cards floating around the web. I decided to take the best I could find and compile the info and photos into a 4×6 size. (That’s my favorite size for inexpensive printing and book display options.)

Here’s a sneak peek of the 21 images:

Quiet Books – Prophets and Apostles

Print the images just as you would a photo using a photo lab such as Costco, Sams Club, Walmart, Target, or print on your home printer. The images are 4×6 in size.

To finish off the book, insert pages into a 4×6 photo album (which can be found at various stores for about a $1). Or you can mount the pages on cardstock, laminate, and spiral bind the book for a more polished look.

Terms of use: Prints are for personal use only. They are not to be resold for any type of profit. I am not making any $$ on these prints… and neither should you. 🙂
