This file contains a 12 x 12in digital scrapbook layout template. The file is a Photoshop layered file that can be used as the basis for your digital scrapbooking page.
The page can be used as a stand alone page or as a double page layout with digital scrapbook layout template 5.
The template includes places for photos, papers, colours and titles but these are only suggestions for your use. You can manipulate each layer as you like. Trying different options can make your page really stand out. Other templates you might find on the web also mark places for you to put design elements, however I prefer to leave that for you to decide.
Knowing how to use clipping masks to add your photos and papers is necessary, except in Affinity Photo where it is as simple as dragging the photo or paper in place.
Use this template used over and over again with very different outcomes. You can also rotate the page 90, 180 or 270 degrees for a fresh look.
