Template Challenge: Cathy Zielske’s Layered Template No 57

I am excited to bring to you this weeks Template Challenge, featuring Cathy Zielske’s Layered Template No 57.


My favorite part of the template challenge is seeing how a template can jump start the creative process with each scrapbooker in so many different ways! With Cathy’s template being so versatile, I knew it was going to be a treat to see the Inspiration pages for this week.
I fell in love with Carol’s (carollee) page the moment I saw it! It is such a cool teen page and I love how she changed the template to suit her design. She did this by rotating the template, changing the size of the larger box and also by adding two more of the smaller boxes. Carol then added a fun new birthday title, brushwork, and embellishments to complete her fabulous teen page!

Now take a look at this adorable page by Lori (LoriS). Lori kept the design of the template the same, but made it her own special page by adding gorgeous layering and so many fabulous embellishments! I also love how she used so many shades of green on her page to showcase her cuties having fun at the apple orchard! It is truly a beautiful fall page!

I, like Lori, also made very few changes to the design of the template. I used the three smaller boxes to showcase three pictures of my daughter at her birthday party.  I loved that I was also able to use one more birthday picture by making it the background paper for the larger box. I then just added a birthday title and embellishments and my page was complete!
