Hi everyone, this is Nancy with a new template challenge for you. Did you know that there are currently over 1200 templates in the store and more being added every week? That is a lot of scrapping inspiration! If you’re anything like me, I’m always looking for something to kick start my pages and sometimes a stroll through the template section of the store is the perfect solution. I love how Katie takes it one step further and features some completed projects under the product information, giving us even more ideas for different ways an item can be used. Multiply all that by the original 1200 and well, you get the picture, the possibilities are infinite, without ever having to leave the store!
For this challenge I went back a ways and picked an oldie but goodie with wonderful bones for you, Friendship Layered Template.
Let’s take a look at how members of the Creative Team used this template:
First, is this delightful page by Linda (earlofoxford), titled “Little Fisherman”. Linda flipped the template horizontally, changed the title to suit her content, added a wide colorful border and a mask with a second patterned paper clipped to it under the photos. Her page features an array of fun new products coming to the store soon. I love the fun ramped up colors Linda used on her page!
In addition to the featured template, Linda used: Day Out Paper Pack and Bonus Paper Pack (coming soon), Stamped Blocks No. 30 Brushes and Stamps, Twisted Dots No. 1, Graphic Word Blocks Brushes and Stamps No. 4, Floridian Mini Kit, Dictionary Blendables Beach No. 1, Krafty Guys Element Pack (coming soon), Messy Outlined Alpha No. 3, Drop Shadow Styles No. 2 all by Katie Pertiet, Hello Baby Hand Drawn Brushes by Ali Edwards, Staple Its by Pattie Knox, and How’d They Do That No. 13: Bending Shadows by Cassie Jones.
Thank you Linda!
Next we have, a sweet page by LeAnne (digishoes), titled “Apples”. LeAnne added a darling banner above the photo block and grounded the patterned paper block with a large doily set under it and a beautiful element cluster. I love how the soft muted colors support her cute photos without taking any of the attention away from them.
In addition to the featured template, LeAnne used: Frosted Winter Kit, Hey There Kit, Make a Date Brushes and Stamps No. 2, Merry Days Kit, Oiselet Bleu Kit, Readymade Circles Love No. 1, Wild Island Kit, Almost Spring Add On Paper Pack, Assorted Patterned Tapes Fall No. 01, Bead Scatterings No. 01, Berk’s Lane Kit, Baker’s Twine Lime, Docu Stacks No. 3 Value Pack, Felt Board Friends: Very Merry No. 3, Fall and Halloween Hand Drawn Brushes, Bead Scatterings No. 1, Toothy No. 1 Paper Pack, and Worn Strips Very Merry.
Thank you LeAnne!
This last page is my (nancybeck) take on the template. I also changed the title and added my own embellishments in keeping with the theme of the page.
In addition to the featured template, I used: Chalked Rubbings No. 1, Pick Me Up Kit, Like This Add On Papers, Jewelry Tag Alpha, Chalk it up Basics No. 2, Gingerbread Runaway Kit, Vintage Charm Chip Stickers, William Kit, Amelia Kit, Vintage Charm Kit, Paper Cuts No. 1, Graphed No. 3 Paper, Wire Rimmed Charms No. 1, Assorted Patterned Tapes Christmas No. 1, Chalked Script Alpha No. 2.
