Who’s ready for a new Flexible Template?
For those who are newer and don’t know what they are, Flexible Templates are the jumping off points I personally often use when starting a layout.
They are not as concrete as a sketch — they are purposely more vague to allow you creative play and tons of flexibility to meet whatever needs your photos demand.
Got one photo? Got ten photos? Most of the templates work will either way!
Rather than telling you where things should go, the Flexible Template provides you an abstract image to get you started, and then you take it from there, whether you’re working with a single photo or lots of photos.
Normally when I release a Flexible Template, I show you how totally varied your layouts from the same template can be by assembling pages on video. All of my resulting pages usually look so completely different that you’d never know they stemmed from the same idea.
But this week I felt like doing something different. I decided to show you how similar you can make your pages with the template, and still have enough variety in them that they’d look great together in the same album despite the similarities.
I used almost all the same products, or very similar products, and only varied a few details between the two pages, and I love how they look together in our Nutcracker album.
This video is in the Paperclipping Member Library and on iTunes.
P.S. I also shared in this video a tip I’m most proud of — one I’ve absolutely enjoyed using whenever I want to make a page with lots of flowery, fabric dimension. I do not like how flowers look in the page protector, and this tip solves that problem beautifully.
I shared this once before a few years back, but it’s always good to be reminded and to see it done with different supplies. Enjoy. :)
