Template Challenge: Make It Yours

What’s not to love about a template? It’s a design already laid out for you to use just as it is, or it’s a starting point from which you can take off on your own creative journey. When the Creative Team used Lynn Grieveson’s Scrap Express No. 122, the basic structure remained in place, but elements were turned and flipped by each artist to make the page her own.

LT703890XBailey (Starlite9711) reduced the size of the template and flipped it to the right. The neutral mat and the cute black and white photo really make the delightful color scheme pop on her page. Bailey’s placement of the red elements helps to draw the viewer’s eye through her design.

Myra (Myra) left the template design intact except for rotating the photo block to accommodate the landscape-oriented picture of her son on the first day of school. When I saw this photo on Facebook, I knew Myra would create a terrific page with it. I love her choice of school-themed products and the red scalloped border she added behind the photo.

I rotated the entire template 90 degrees to the left and reduced the size of the mat slightly. I love the focal photo of my husband fishing during spring break week in Georgia, but I also wanted to include a picture of my grandchildren trying out their skills. The mat became the perfect home for a blended picture of them.
