New Digital Template Plus FREE Pre-made Pages


The second Webajeb page layout template is here!

(If you missed the first one, which is a FREEBIE, you can get it here.)

These are so much fun to use, and easy, too. As mentioned when I posted my first layout template (here), Webajeb templates are layered .PSD files with a "Plus." In Jessica Sprague-style they feature a plus sign on each layer that is clippable, making it super-easy to identify which layers are made especially for clipping digital papers.

I use Photoshop but I know tons of digital scrapbookers use Elements or other programs, some of which may not support the clipping technique. Please know that these layered files are still appropriate for you!

You don't have to use clipping on these layers. You can use any method you like to recolor, select and cut, or apply styles and textures to the layers. These .PSD files work like any other, with each element on its own layer, making it easy for you to add your own papers, elements, titles, and journaling.

Here is the template with photos, digital papers, color added to the fibers, and some text:

Thanks to DigiTreats for the January-themed paper (slightly recolored to match my photos). If you don't already "follow" the DigiTreats blog, you need to jump on that bandwagon right now. There is a freebie nearly every day plus a huge shoppe (currently having a Grand Re-Opening sale) full of great digital, well, TREATS!

I love the DigiTreats flowered paper so much that I also created a version of my finished page without the 5 small photos at the top, so that more of the flowered paper is visible:

Another really great look, don't you think?

Now, for those of you who prefer pre-made pages I am making each of my fully layered templates available in that format as well.

You can be among the first to use one of these templates. Simply click on either of the template images to download it. Download both, if you like!

UPDATE: 03/10/09: I have had to remove the links to these pre-made pages. After letting Pamela of DigiTreats know that I had featured some of her papers here on my blog, she wrote back to say that I could not use them to give away as freebies due to the fact that she uses other designer's products to create her own, and that those other designer's Terms of Use preclude their use in any commercial way, including as freebies. **SIGH** Sorry about that, friends! However, I will (as soon as I have time between all the traveling I'm doing this month) re-create these pre-made pages using my OWN papers and then re-post them, as freebies, of course!

Tumble Templates are delivered as flattened .JPG files. Simply open a new document in your scrapbooking software program and drag in the template. *On the template layer, use your magic wand to select the gray photo areas and delete it. You now have a hole in the template. Add a new layer under the template, "tumble" your photos onto that new layer, and re-size as needed.

(* Of course, this is just one way of adding photos; use any favorite technique.)

Save with a new name, and Done!
