Templates make life easier ...

Really they normally do. But bare with me while i share this story. I had the best intentions of scrapping my kids Christmas morning photos easily & quickly to just get them done ... this is what i ended up with.

I started with this template & added my photos for each kid into a separate page. I started scrapping Makennas page, I intended on dragging over all the elements & title. Then i started adding different stuff to Spencer's page. Then I couldn't make up my mind which direction I liked more. So I scrapped on and on ... ok for days really. So today i said today is the last day these pages are going to be open in Photoshop so i wrapped them up.

When i see each page side by side, i lean towards liking the look of Spencer's page more. I like the funky greens, the bright reds & the star brushwork that i just discovered tonight in my stash. On Makenna's page i like the texture of the background, the white brushwork & the metal star/bow cluster. I am so relieved that these photos are now scrapped, no one will care years from now that they both started with the same template.

But do you think anyone might notice that earlier that same year when we picked our Christmas Tree that page started with the same template?

If you would like to learn more about changing up templates, be sure to check out the self paced class at Big Picture that i have created called Template Manipulation. In this class you will get 3 free templates, a stitching sampler & even a special discount for Designer Digitals.

Happy Scrapping!
