Just a peek...and a prize :)

We've been busy creating a few new things -- no, we're not ready to reveal anything yet. HOWEVER....we thought we'd give you just a little peek at something that we put together today.

Annette created a darling page template,


and then I used her template to create a digital layout about my sweet little granddaughter, BrookeLynne. Of course...I had to use some new digital designs. I know...it's mean to share when we can't really SHARE yet...but hey, it gives you something to look forward to.



Let us know what you think. We'd love to find out if there are any "template" digital scrappers that follow our blog. We'd also love any suggestions you may have about other things you'd like to see us create :)

Let's make this interesting...if you make a comment to this post we'll put you in a drawing to receive a digital template. And...if you add yourself to the list of scrappers who "follow this blog" (see link to your right), we'll put another entry in for your name. And don't worry...if you're already following the blog...you'll get an entry in the drawing.

I love digi templates now that I know how to use them but do mainly use MemoryMixer2 so digi pagers and elements I can add in there would be great. On templates I need/would buy: double layout templates, ones that use multiple photos, templates for layots that will fit into standard size photo frames. Not sure if you want themes but I would like some brother sister/ son daughter themes since I have boys and a girl. Most of what is out is for all boys or all girls

thanks a bunch, can't wait to see more

Looks good, I haven't gone Digi but it looks interesting. Can't wait it see what else you create. Look your ideas.

Love the template! I use the templates and quick pages frequently. I'm creatively-challenged sometimes. Now that I've taught myself how to quickly use them with PSCS2 I actually find myself creating pages as soon as I upload the pictures.

I agree with Melissa O. for 2-page layout templates and multiple photos.

Can't wait to see what else you have coming.

I am still a paper scrapper, but this looks great. Could you design something for horse people?

I think the design you made from the template is just darling. I noticed Melissa O said she usually uses MM2. I usually use that, too. I don't have a different photoshop program, so I would also love designs that could be uploaded to that.

Good MOrning Ettes

I love the darling layout made from the template. I don't do much digi scrapping but would I think do more with fantastic ideas like this one. I am basically a paper scrapper except for my LTO subscription.

Would love some great new kits with new themes and you have had lots of suggestions for those. I like to use multiple photos on pages too so help that way would be good.

I am thinking that if I didn't use these ideas for digital they would make terrific page ideas or sketches for me to use in my books.

I love your ideas and hope you keep them coming and can't wait for what you have in store for us with what you are doing. Keep it up.

Love the template and the layout you shared. I am moving more towards digital for my scrapbooks, but still enjoy the paper side for cards and such.

Krystal Hartley said...

I'm not really a template gal, but Rach and Shelley are TOTALLY there...I'm sure they will be checking in soon. :)

I am pretty darn excited that you guys are still messing with the digital side of things!

Britt said...

I am so happy that you ladies are doing some digital templates! I really want to dabel more with them in PhotoshopCS2. I have been kinda chicken because Memory Mixer is so quick and easy. And I can use all my other lifetimedz designs from the past in there.
I love the layout you did of your granddaughter.

Beth Swann said...

I'd love to see more templates and digi designs from the two of you! Keep them coming!

Janelle said...

I love the colors on the layout! Any chance we might see some of those designs in paper format too?? (:
...waiting on the edge of my seat for more "ettes" stuff! (:

morty said...

Thanks for the sneek peek, very cute - does this mean you're going totally digital now?

As I'm not 'into' digi scrapping, I'll be sooooo disappointed if you are not going to do paper products anymore.

Izzy said...

Love the template & the page created!

Lea said...

Great job on the template and super cute layout! LOVE IT! I'm in with Melissa's idea on a brother & sister theme as well! WE WANNA SEE MORE!!! ;) Been tooooo long!

mrs_docko said...

I dabble in digi scrapping still even though I have a preference for paper. I find too that the templates sometimes come in handy as a "sketch" layout for me to use for my paper scrapping.
Great to see you both enjoying playing around again.

Julie said...

I'm comletely digi now and use templates about 70% of the time! Love to see more of these from you!

Jan said...

Template girl here! Shelley taught me to use them in photoshop, so I've been a template addict ever since.

Joyce Williams said...

The template is great. I only do digital now except for card making and paper crafting and even then I use some digital, so bring it on. Like Melissa, I love double layout page templates. What my gals are asking for is outdoor, hunting, fishing, camping and sports. I now use mostly Heritage Makers but some Memory Mixer 2. Any digital saved as a JPG can be uploaded to HM. I would love to see all of your past designs released in templates.

By the way how do I become one of your followers and post my picture? Da I just can't figure it out.

Jo said...

You two know I will always be a paper girl at heart but I have started doing some digital layouts. This template is darling, Annette.
I look forward to more in the future.
