In honor of Digital Scrapbooking Day last weekend, I released an all-new limited set of digital scrapbooking templates, Digi Scrap Love, here at Nettio Designs. Since tomorrow, Friday November 7th is the final day to grab them, I wanted to take a minute today to give you a closer look at each of the four templates.
Most template designers will tell you that templates are awesome because they save you time – and depending on your scrapbooking style and skill-level, that can be true.
But my personal favorite reason for using templates is as a jumping off point for my own creativity.
No more worrying about “Where should I put my photo?” or “Will my title look good if I put it here?” Simply use the template as a guide for the foundation of your layout and then embellish and customize the template to your heart’s content for a look that’s 100% unique to your story and style.
Now for a look at the Digi Scrap Love Templates…
Template No. 1 in the Digi Scrap Love Templates features a single photo, six grid design and vertically divided background. Open white space in the background of the layout is a great place to add a punch of your own style. In my case, I chose to add a blended version of my photo to really drive my story home.
Template No. 2 in the Digi Scrap Love Templates features a nine-grid design. Grids are one my absolute favorite layout foundation for creative scrapbooking, not only for their clean-lined look, but because I love the way the blocks give me “homes” for all my photos and details. Playing with digiscrap goodies is part of the fun and this template gives you plenty of room to do just that.
Template No. 3 in the Digi Scrap Love Templates features a bold edge-to-edge triangle design perfect for mixing and matching all that gorgeous patterned paper that comes in a kit. I don’t know about you but after all the hexagons and chevrons, I’m thrilled to see this little three-sided classic shape get it’s time in the sun again.
And finally Template No. 4 in the Digi Scrap Love Templates features an even more awesome grid design, this time based around one of my personal favorite storytelling methods: top ten lists!
Lists are awesome not only because they’re one of, if not the, easiest form of journaling, but because they create a great foundation for your design as well. I chose to use this template to showcase ten things I want to remember about my little boy, but you could easily use it for vacation faves, monthly faves, etc., too.
Now to channel my inner Price Is Right host, all four of these templates can be yours when you grab the Digi Scrap Love Templates!
These 12×12 templates are limited edition and available only thru tomorrow, Friday November 7th. They’re also the ONLY new 12×12 digital scrapbooking templates I’ll be releasing this year so grab them while you can!
