I am so excited to bring to you a beautiful template from Katie Pertiet for this weeks Template Challenge! Katie’s Blendable Layered Template No 13. is full of gorgeous elements and blending that is sure to make creating your own special page a breeze! Take a look at how three creative team members used this template to create their own special pages.
I picked Katie’s template because I knew I wanted to showcase three photos of my daughter with her favorite neighborhood puppy. I love that the design was already in place for me on the template and I just needed to make a few changes. In order to add more white space to my page, I started my layout by reducing the size of the template. I then wanted to tie in the green from my photos and did this by simply changing a few of the original elements to green. I finished my page by adding other elements and brushwork that I felt went nicely with the “puppy love” theme.

Take a look at this beautiful page that Nancy (Nancy Beck) created to document the special bond she has with her daughter! In contrast to my multi-photo page, Nancy has one special picture on her page. She was able to change the template to accommodate this by removing the other two frames. Nancy also needed more room on her page to add a poem and she was able to do this by removing a few elements from the original template and positioning the template higher on her page. She also added her own special touch to the page with beautiful brushwork and a few added elements.

I also love how Steph (Steph) used Katie’s template to create this gorgeous page documenting her daughter’s first day of high school. The title of the template worked perfectly with the theme and journaling of Steph’s page! To coordinate with the colors in her photos, Steph recolored some elements in greens and purples. She continued to make the template her own by adding the beautiful details of the patterned paper and lace both on the top and bottom of her page.
