Stars and stripes make great additions to scrapbook pages, especially summertime pages! It’s Template Tuesday; to celebrate, we’re featuring a couple of fun templates for you to mash to your heart’s content. 🙂
Our creative team found a lot of inspiration in these two designs.
Esther rotated the first template and used matting elements from the second to showcase a sweet photo of her parents. Esther’s supplies included: Here Comes the Sun Layered Template, Shine-on (paper), Clear Thru Alphabet No. 08, Layer Works No. 567.
Jana merged the star overlay from the first template with the bold elements of the second to create a bright and energetic piece perfect for her fun theme. The products that Jana used include: Layer Works No. 567, All White Now Paper Pack No. 03, Here Comes the Sun Layered Template, Krafty Love Paper Pack, Kerava Solids Paper Pack, Catching Rainbows Solids Paper Pack.
Hillarey used stitching to highlight the watery stripes of the first template. Combined with the rustic texture of the background paper she chose, a very unique look resulted! Hillarey used these DD goodies on her layout: Here Comes the Sun Layered Template, Layer Works No. 567, Assorted Messy Stitches: White No. 05, Assorted Patterned Tapes: Christmas No. 01, Beached Solids Paper Pack, Malene Element Pack, Twisted Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 01.
The creative team had fun noticing how very different these three example layouts turned out–with the same inspiration templates as starting points. I hope you’ll be inspired to mash these templates, too, and to share with us your results in our Template Challenge Gallery. Don’t forget that entries in the mash up, when created with 100% currently available DD products, are eligible for our loyalty rewards program.
