Four 12x12 Templates

I was playing around making templates last night. Some of these are a little funky, and most are pretty simple. But I'd thought I'd share in case anyone can make any use out of them.

Instructions for saving:
Click on the thumbnail to go to the larger version, then right click and do a "save as", and save it where ever you keep you scrapping items. (These are not meant to be added into the PSE program).










Quote:
Instructions for use:
1. To create a scrapbook page, open the template, photos, and paper you plan to use.
2. Get the Magic Wand tool and make sure "contiguous" is checked in the Options bar
3. Choose the photo you want to use and choose "Select>All" (shortcut: ctrl "A") to put a selection outline around the picture.
4. Choose "Edit>copy" (ctrl "C") to copy the picture (or paper)
5. Click on the template document to select it and then click on the area you wish to replace with the magic wand to to select that area.
6. Create a new layer (ctrl J), select that layer - hold down the ctrl key and click on the icon
7. Choose "Edit > "paste into selection" to paste the photo/paper into the selection - do not deselect yet.
8. Resize or move the photo as needed, when you are satisfied with the placement then do "Select > deselect"
9. Repeat the above steps to fill the page (I usually start from the background paper and then add photos)
10. Add embellishments and titles and journeling.

Helpful hints:
1. You can change the color of borders by selecting them and then recoloring with the paint bucket tool.
2. Since these are square layouts you can rotate them and get a whole new look!
3. If there is an element you don't want to use, you can use the paint bucket to fill it with the background color, and it disappears.
If you do use these, I'd love to see what you create!

Thanks for sharing.

Four more...

Thanks everyone! Janice that looks awesome! Love how you made it your own!!

I'm supposed to be working on my son's baby book - I'm a few months behind, but I just can't seem to get in a good groove, so I'm back to making templates, since sometimes that helps me with scrappers block...

Here are a few more....


This one is just so sixties...




A variation on the one above


Hint: Use the recolor brush to change the ribbon color

Enjoy!

Edit: Argh - that is annoying. I'm not sure why the thumbnails aren't showing up. The resolution should be low enough.

I'm not a scrapbooker. I learned Elements to use in making greeting cards. But I couldn't resist popping some photos into your template.

BTW - the way Pixentral works -

The reason it got all black in the thumbnail is because it probably was transparent in between the black lines and the thumbnails show up with black in the transparent areas. So black lines on transparency would equal completely black thumbnails.

Huh - there wasn't anything transparent in the templates, and they open up fine when you click on the thumbnail.

I'd keep trying to figure out how to get it to work, but I really need to go mow the lawn while we still have a bit of sunshine left.

strange about the thumbnails

I'll try it



Same result for me

Maybe it has something to do with the size of the picture on Pixentral - but then again - the other ones were that large also - and their thumbnails posted all right.
