Enough about that though! In one of the comments, over the weekend, I was asked how I do it. Do I scrap layouts and then create templates from those? I'm actually the opposite. I create the templates, then when I want to scrap a layout, I just pull out one of my templates to use. Here's the thing. I love, love, love planning out a layout, trying to think visually how photos should fit on a page-keeping a good balance of white space and always trying to think of the rules of thirds. When I am in this mode, I don't like needing to also focus on which photo to use, what I should journal, what title, etc. So, by making it a template, then I can focus on the composition of the layout and that only. When I get ready to scrap, I want to put my energy behind the photo/the story/etc. and I don't want to think about the composition of the layout. I don't know if that makes sense, but its what works for me!!
And I also had a request to share the info of one of my online friends who designs. Her name is Angie, and she is awesome! She sells her designs at ScrapMatters under the design name of Down This Road Designs.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
