I have figured out how to use the layered ones like Jen Caputo makes...how do you use the ones that are not layered?

aren't her sketches fantastic!
In the good old days ( feeling OLD for a sec here :) I just used the sketches as inspiration and ran with it! no right or wrong and don' have to look exactly as the sketch. Hopefully someone can explain this better I think the heat has fried my brain today!

If it is just a sketch you use it just as inspiration, you can see where to place pics, text, embellishments, etc. If it is a full size template see if the "windows" for pictures are transparent kind of like a quick page. These are very easy, just stick a picture behind and fill your page with a paper and embellishments. If it is a full size template with gray scale "parts", then you will have to use your magic wand selector to select each area and fill with what you want.
Hope that helps!

I"ve never used the magic wand thing. I use PS7. I'll give it a try. does it work with sketches that are not layered? I'll go play with it and see what I can figure out.

I will quite often place the sketch as my background layer and then just place photos, paper, embellishments right over top of it, that way I have the sketch as a guide but can still deviate from it if I want to.

I wrote a tut for using unlayered sketches. It's for DIP but is easily adapted to any program. You'll find it here: http://www.members.iinet.net.au/~kimlizzy/using_sketches_as_templates.htm
