Scrapgirls have neat templates for scrapping too. I made a layout using one of their templates & a freebie kit from the July newsletter from Scrapbook-Elements.

I am also a fan of the templates from Scrapgirls. I have purchased most of them and use them with PSP-X.

I love the idea of templates or sketches. I suck at designing layouts and sometimes the quick pages or "ploppers" are not to my taste. What I see in my mind's eye is not what shows up on screen.

Templates or sketches give me a jumping off point. From there, it's sink or swim, but at least it gives me a platform. I can use any paper, texture or embelishment I choose and the layout is balanced and eye-catching.

Wow! I didn't realize that so many folks were creating these templates! I think they are a great idea for people that are time challenged or feeling creatively challenged - especially when those big projects roll around.

My mom has been begging me to create an album of memories of my Dad and I have been meaning to do it thinking that I would use the Scrapgirl templates to speed things up a bit.

I've also been making templates out of some of my layouts to share with a couple of friends of mine who are just starting to learn digital scrapping. If I can get some extra time next weekend, I'll get some of them posted over in the Freebies area.

I have a few of their templates also. I just don't have it in me to design a lo....when I try it just doesn't come out looking as planned. Templates have a been a HUGE help for me. :)

Michelle Coleman has some great ones at ScrapArtist and just recently I discovered a bunch of fun ones at Digital Scrapbook Place.

Sometimes I feel lame using templates ~ but I seem to struggle with every page I do. I realized I was avoiding scrapping ~ when I discovered these templates it gave me a whole new lease on scrapping. At least using a template you get to use the papers and stuff that you want, where a quick page you just put your picture on it.

I sometimes feel like I'm cheating when I use them. But when I'm done and love my page I get over it pretty quick! LOL

I don't think it should feel like cheating. If I used one for a layout, I would credit the person that created the template, but beyond that just be happy to get the layouts done. Isn't it better to create pages that your family can enjoy than to worry about "cheating"?
