Seeing as I am such a template-a-holic, I thought it would be great to share with you some of the template designers that I regularly use. You’ll notice that they represent a pretty wide range of styles, but I think that keeps everything looking fresh and new.
Cindy Schneider at Sweet Shoppe Designs – I’ve talked before (and talked and talked) about how much I love using Cindy’s templates. I love the clustered look of them, which I have such a hard time coming up with on my own. I also appreciate the little things that Cindy does to make using her templates easier, like color coding the layers. One of my favorite sets of Cindy’s templates is this bundle:
Janet Phillips at Sweet Shoppe Designs – Janet’s templates are almost the polar opposite of Cindy’s. Janet’s are clean and graphic, and always put the attention right back on the photo. Janet is also the master of templates with an insane number of pictures. I especially like this template:
Amy Martin at The Lilypad – Amy’s templates are always a little bit funky. She recently has been doing some templates that have cut out spaces in them, and I love the way those look. I also love that Amy often offers mini bundles, singles, and larger bundles. One of my favorite sets by Amy is
Jaclyn Bernardo at Funky Playground Designs – Jaclyn really is awesome at stacking in her templates. Stacking paper strips, or background papers, or elements, they always look awesome. She even has sets of just her stacks, which I love too. I love this one especially
BTA Designs at Polka Dot Plum – BTA Designs templates’ are great for white space layouts. They often feature a large background with a small cluster in one of the corners or the middle. I especially like this set of templates:
Berry Sweet Designs at Polka Dot Plum – These templates are excellent white space layouts too! They are minimal with a little layering and lots of space around them. This set that I picked also has ample space for journaling, which is a major plus. Check them out
Nikki Epperson at The Digi Chick – I got hooked on Nikki’s templates when she was at PDP with me. What I really like about Nikki’s templates is that sometimes, they are nice and super layered and fun…and other times they are nice and simple. She has a variety of styles, which makes her templates appealing to me. I love this set
Ali Edwards at Designer Digitals – Do I really need to say more than her name? Ali is one of the masters of digi scrap. I love her simple styled layouts. Always clean and graphic, but never boring her templates always seem to make a statement.
Cathy Zielske at Designer Digitals – Cathy’s another designer with nice, clean and simple templates. What I always find fun about Cathy’s templates is that they usually have some great word art already built into them. I love this template
