Scrap Inside My Box

There is so much talk about scrapping outside your box in the digital scrapbooking world. Actually, that's the main reason why I like to use templates on some of my LO's, because if I didn't all my LO's would look the same. But, my box might not be the same as your box, so today I am inviting you to scrap inside my box. This is my fallback layout: A large strip of patterned paper on top, a small strip of coordinating paper below, and a ribbon separating the two papers. Enjoy! :)

You learn something new everyday

That really has been true for me lately, anyway! This template is my first attempt at two things: curled pictures and folded corners. Hope you like it. :)

Another Template and a Bunny

Hope you all haven't finished your Easter layouts already! I ventured into the world of vector graphics today, and came up with this bunny. I'm pretty pleased with my first attempt. :) And, since I love templates, I'm giving him to you in both a png and a layered file so that you can fill him in with papers if you would like. I've given you an example in the preview of what it can look like with paper using some papers from the Digitreats Skip kit. Hope you enjoy.

Also, my template for today is pretty simple, but I love the layout I made. :) Hope it sparks some creativity in you, too!

Another Day, Another Template

I did this layout, and when I was finished I thought it looked like I had used a template. It would have been easier if I had! So, I've made a template to make it easier for you. :)

A Springy Template

I'm excited about my template for today. I'm just waiting for the right picture to put in it. Hopefully you have one! :) Also, I realized that my first templates didn't have good layer names. If I can remember, they'll be better from now on. :)

The Reason I Love Templates

I love templates for lots of reasons, but, honestly, the reason I like making templates is because I'm a terrible designer. Believe me, I've tried. Just to prove my point, I'm offering this little freebie. I made this a little while ago because I couldn't find what I wanted. Maybe someone else will find some use for it too.
Credits (other than my kit) Clothespin from Thaty kit by G Mendes, Brown Inked Edge Overlay by Gina Cabrera, and I feel terrible, but I can't find the receipt anywhere now. Someone who's seen it tell me where I got it from. :)

First Post, First Templates!

Hello! Welcome to my blog where I will be sharing my freebie templates! I scrap (and make templates) using Paint Shop Pro, and I know there are many out there who have also chosen this program, so I will offer my templates in both PSP and PSD. :) So, without further ado, here are my first freebies. Hope you enjoy them! Leave a comment if you download, please. :)
