Welcome to a new series all about digital templates – what they are, how to use them, why to use them, and how to adapt them to your style!
So what are digital templates? Think of digital templates the same way you would think of a sketch you might use for a traditional layout. In fact, some templates are really just that – sketches with digital placeholders. When you open these types of templates in your software, all you have are the empty placeholders for photos and paper – you have to add all your own paper and embellishments, as well as journaling and a title. Others come with almost everything done for you – the title, the embellishments and even the paper. All you have to do is add your photos and journaling and you’re done. We’re going to start by looking at these second type of templates because they’re just easier to start with.
Here’s a couple of examples from templates I’ve used recently from Designer Digitals.
In this first layout, I chose to work with the following template. It includes all the elements you see below, including the title, frames, and all of the embellishments.
