As I understand it, the 8879 template is 7.5" wide split down the
middle with 5 abutting rows of 2.25 inches

1. Open a new document, 8879 size (sorry I dont know what that is)just
measure it and make a custom new document if it is not standard letter
or A4

2. Insert guides to make 10 3.75x2.25 divisions with further guides
for a 1/8 " bleed area and a 1/8 " no print area so you end up with a
work area of 3.25"x1.75"

3. Use the scrapbook to hold your 3.25"x1.75" card work and then just
keep pasting it into the 10 work areas.

http://members.pcug.org.au/~rcook/scribus/8879.sla will give you the
idea, it has a Scribus-1.3.6 heading, so I assume it will open in
