Introduction to Digital Templates: Part 1

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.

Pinterest Inspiration | Linens

When it comes to design, I am always drawn to clean lines and uncluttered layouts. When I stumbled upon these linens on Pinterest, I absolutely fell in love with them. Unfortunately, they are from the Netherlands so I probably won’t be purchasing them but I was inspired enough by them to make a scrapbook layout based on their colors and design.

Thank You Thank You

Rainbow color schemes are hot, text design elements are hot, and washi tape is hot. And designer Terri Davenport managed to get them all in to one card!

The main part of this card is digital, which allowed Terri to create a special effect. To get the effect of the text sentiment in between the stripes in the pattern, Terri selected a digital patterned paper, and then added the text into the pattern digitally before printing it and adhering it to the card.

This simple, clean and bright card is a great design to have on hand because it is great for a lot of uses – kids and young people, men, teachers, and so many other people would just love this card!
