So why do we love to use templates? Because they are easy! Someone else has already thought through the compostition for you, so you already know that your layout will look great when it is done. So the most basic way to use a template is… as it is! Here are some examples of using templates as is. Remember, we are all using the same templates, Fuss Free: Pennants, by Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs,
I created the layout below with my kit Retro Sweets. See you don’t even have to use the cupcakes if you don’t want too. That is a way to extend your kits too! Even if they are themed, often you can get a lot of generic stuff out of them to, making pretty much every kit versatile for whatever use you might need it. This is my daughter playing piano in public for the first time. She did so great! I loved using a template to just get me going again after having been in a bit of a scrapping slump.
Studio Artist Bea created this fun, bright layout, using Friends for Life, so she could remember the conversation going on between these two precious boys and their quest to save the candy from its pinata captor! Something else she did that I need to do better… she dated her layout. I like when there is a date so I can recall how old the kids are or if I wanted to do a chronological album I know where to put it.
Studio Artist Olivia made this one that I love using the mini kit, Go For It. I love how she talks about her brothers experience making a science fair project, but got all talked out about his subject. Rather then just saying this is what he made, blah, blah, blah…she turned it into a semi humorous story while still noting the facts of the story.
So, yep it is obvious, but just use the templates as they come. Next week, we will show you a way to tweak your templates and get even more usage out of the packs sitting on your EHD! I can’t wait to share next weeks with you! Also, if you like the templates we are using, make sure and check out Fiddle-Dee-Dee designs store as they are all using her Fuss Free: Pennants templates!
