Another digital goodie! If you are just starting out digital scrapping, a great way to get started is using templates. One of the rockstars of the digital template world, Cindy Schneider from Sweet Shoppe Designs has something for you!
"My name is Cindy Schneider and I live in Ontario, Canada, approximately an hour north of Toronto. I am a SAHM with my two children, Ashley (8) and Curtis (5), and have been married to my husband Brad for 11 years. I have been a template designer at the Sweet Shoppe since March 2010."
Cindy recently released her 100th template pack at Sweet Shoppe Designs. A prolific scrapper, Cindy creates beautiful templates that are brilliantly designed. She makes it easy to understand how to layer and place embellishments on your pages. By using her templates, you'll learn a lot about how to construct digital pages.

Now for a freebie! Cindy has designed this amazing template for all of you to download. Be sure to download it before August 17th because the link will expire then!
Here's a page that Cheryl Overton created using the template. Although Cindy's templates are fairly intricate, her underlying design aesthetic is very clean. This makes it easy to add more to the layout or take away as Cheryl has done here. Cheryl also converted the layout to 8.5x11, a favorite size of hers! Cheryl used supplies from our WCS friend Crystal Wilkerson! How cute is that pooch?
Celeste Smith kept the 12x12 design, yet she simplified the page a bit, by removing some of the elements and replacing flowers with simple buttons.
