It's no secret that I LOVE templates. After using and creating them for over seven years, I can still say with full confidence that they are a scrapper's best friend!
One of the things that I love most about them is that they are just a starting point. A template's design doesn't lock you in. Rather, it gives you a place to jump off from.
In this seven-minute video I will show you one of my favorite tricks for altering a template: changing the size/shape of a photo spot. Although it's an easy fix, those just getting started in digital scrapbooking might not know how easy it is.
