And back in the game with style! and styled templates. heehee. Crystal has eight new template collections that are amazing. With four per set that makes thirty two in all! And I am certain you, like me, are going to love them. And remember, those 32 templates can be flipped, turned, or twisted to create even more pages!
Upon first glance, I think most would think to use Crystal's templates for digital pocket page scrapbooking. For me, however, those little boxes meant that the sun, moon, and stars had aligned--and maybe angels sang. Imagine all the layouts I could make with the oodles of series photos that I take.
Being that it is Click. Tuesday, let's chat photos for a minute.
When I take photos these days, I am usually at a sporting event taking photo after photo, or am out with the kids taking an hundred photos (not an exaggeration) of all the itty bitty details that surround them and the activity. I try to limit myself, but somehow I always seem to get home with a full memory card.
Crystal's templates are the perfect way to get lots of photos on one layout. While I love my one photo layouts, getting to put lots of shots together to help tell my stories with more images, and fewer words, makes me happy! :)
To show you how much I love them, and how useful they are for my current phototaking needs, I use a few to make some layouts. Wanna see? Please say yes...
TEMPLATE PACK #1
I used the one in the top left hand corner. I take way more horizontal photos than vertical, so I tipped the layout to the right. Which actually worked really well to have a vertical title for a drippy title!
The templates come with two options, one with styles, one without. I like the styles: they let my pages stay uniform and add the texture that I love. I did switch the color on the style for the white paper to better blend it in.
TEMPLATE PACK #4
Two templates caught my eye in this set. The top left hand corner, and the bottom right hand corner.
First, I love the simplicity and white space in the top left template. Twelve photos and white space. Who knew it was possible? I left it white to honor it!!
So I didn't use 12 photos. I had some lovely patterned paper calling my name so I shared some spaces!
For the next template, I loved the big photo space. I knew just what photos I would use. It takes eight shots to capture a cartwheel, and I had eight squares to fill. Perfect!
The styles on this one were perfect in color and amount. Completely perfect! And what is it about beach gymnastics photos that get me so? I love them. I do wish we had better planned an outfit for the occasion. Yes, I just said that out loud. Please forgive me. :)
I remember back in the day when I used to color block everything. All those hours spent measuring and trimming. Now, I just clip a photo to a layer in one of Crystal's templates and within minutes I have a completed layout. No muss. No fuss.
Did you notice that in four layouts I just scrapbooked 22 photos? And did I mention that I made all four in one day? Not a day that I also cooked 3 meals, made 4 beds, laundered 16 loads of laundry, and thrice walked the dog, but all in a day nonetheless.
You, too, have the power to be a scrapbooking superstar. Really. Just click over to Crystal's store, and scoop up whichever template floats your boat. I might suggest all 8 sets. I mean, why not? Especially because if you act fast, (before Sunday, to be exact) you could have 50% off! That's right!! The coupon code is: CWTEMP50 and it is good through Sunday, June 22nd.
I might suggest, too, for more ideas on using the templates, that you stop by Crystal's blog to see how she scrapped a layout a day in the month of May. She is amazing.
I hope you have fun trying this fast and fun way to scrapbook your photos! Happy snapping and happy scrapping!
