Template Talk

Let's face it...we're all busy. Maybe with different things and at different stages in life, but we're all busy! Don't get me wrong...I LOVE my creative scrapping time, but if I can cut down on the amount of time it take to finish a layout, I'm all over it. Here is an idea to help cut down on actual layout time so hopefully we can accomplish more in the time we have to scrap.

USE A LAYERED TEMPLATE!! Sometimes I want to create my own design, but sometimes when I have a lot of photos, I love to use a good template. It makes thing go so much quicker, and they are so flexible. I had a bunch of photos of my kids' favorite artwork from last year and I didn't feel like re-inventing the scrapping wheel with each child's work, so I used my Art By Me layered template available at pcLayers.com and whipped these babies out super fast. And I'm happy with how they turned out, too! =)
