Template Scrapbooking Challenge: Seeing Squares

Templates can be so much fun to use. They can be very versatile. I adore the fact that we can take a template to help us out at all times. Even if it is when our mojo goes on vacation. We can even take the template and use it as is, or we can take it and switch it up to make it our own.  That is just what Janet, Jen and I did. The three of us took Cathy Zielske’s Layered Template No. 43 and switched it up. I love how one template can come out with such different looks!


I just adore how Janet added the photo’s of her daughter along the side. And how she clipped adorable paper to the squares and added one large photo is just stunning! The pinks and greens are so soft and sweet, just like her subject.

Jen also switched up the template ever so slightly. She added more photos along the bottom and moved the journaling over to the side. I adore all the fun photos showcasing her love for her favorite holiday.

I took this template and rotated it and shrank it just a tad. I moved the title and took up more space for the journaling. I loved having the space for multiple photos to display my oldest daughters love for games.
