Digital scrapbooking with Layered Templates
Posted By Rachel B On February 10, 2010 @ 6:03 pm In Photo Book Ideas | 7 Comments
If you’ve created a digitally scrapped quick page  and feel like you want to take the next step and get a little fancier, I highly recommend creating a layered template.

LAYERED TEMPLATES – WHAT ARE THEY?
Layered templates are similar to quick pages, except that instead of having a completed page with a place for you to add your photo, you get a diagram showing where all the components of the page should go. You decide what papers and embellishments you’re going to use, but the template shows you where to put them. This means you have more control over the look of the page. And you’re using the same dragging and dropping principles you used for your quick page, so it’s almost as easy.
In this template, different colors show where the different papers go, and where you should type your title and journaling. You open up the template, drop in your photos, add the paper and embellishments and you’re done!
MY FIRST LAYERED TEMPLATE PAGE – NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!
Below is my very first page, and I’m VERY excited about it. How did I do this?
Voila! I’ve created a digitally scrapped photo album page! And I know you can do it too.
Remember – you’ll need software that will allow you to digiscrap. Digitalscrapbookplace.com  has an easy to read software section that will help you choose what’s right for you. Best of all, it features links to free software trial versions.
