SAVING TIME WITH TEMPLATES

THE REASON I WAS ABLE TO KNOCK OUT THIS ALBUM WITH SUPER QUICK SPEED WAS THAT I CREATED THIS DIAMOND TEMPLATE AND USED IT THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM. IT MADE FOR A QUICK AND EFFICIENT WAY TO KNOCK OUT A COUPLE PAGES AT A TIME.

TIME SAVING WAY NO. 1

USE A TEMPLATE FOR UNIQUE PICTURE PAGES 

ANOTHER WAY I USED THE TEMPLATE WAS TO CREATE A UNIQE PICTURE PAGE. I USED ONE IMAGE ACROSS ALL OF THE DIAMONDS AND SIMPLY CLIPPED IT TO EACH SHAPE SO THAT THE CUT AWAY PATTERN WAS REVEALED. PAIRED WITH ANOTHER FULL PAGE PICTURE LIKE I DID, IT WAS A FUN WAY TO ADD INTEREST TO THE SPREAD.

TIME SAVING WAY NO. 2

USE A TEMPLATE FOR COLLAGES

THE OTHER WAY I UTILIZED THIS TEMPLATE WAS A COMBINATION OF PHOTOS AND PATTERNED PAPERS. I MIXED UP THE LAYOUT SO IT WOULDN'T GET MONOTONOUS WITH THE OTHER LAYOUTS AND USED A BLACK AND WHITE PICTURE IN COMBINATION WITH A COLOR ONE SO THAT THE COLOR ONE WOULD BECOME THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE PAGE.

TIME SAVING WAY NO. 3

USE A TEMPLATE FOR FILLER PAGES

ONE WAY I UTILIZED IT WAS AS A FILLER, OPPOSITE  SOME OF MY PHOTO PAGES THAT HAD WORD OVERLAYS. BY USING SIMILAR COLORS AND PATTERNS  THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM, THESE FILLER PAGES WERE A FUN WAY TO ADD INTEREST INTO THE MINI.
