View Full Version : Template Exchange!

09-01-2011, 09:24 AM
Hello ladies and welcome to the DSS Birthday Bash!!! WHOOT!! WHOOT!!! I am hosting the template exchange. The rules are simple- just make a template, upload a preview of it and email me your template {ulrich.stephanie@gmail.com}. At the end of the challenge you will get a nice set of templates for playing along! I'll PM everyone who played a zip to DL the template set. Fun and easy, no?

Have fun! I'll be adding my template soon. If you have any questions, please ask!

oooh how exciting, I may have to participate in this when I need a break from designing!

09-01-2011, 11:12 AM
Sounds fun. I've never made a template before. Anybody have a link to how to do this in PSE?
Thanks in advance!

09-01-2011, 11:16 AM
Oh fun!!

09-01-2011, 11:59 AM

I believe you have the entire month to get your templates in and here is the Gallery Link (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1300-template-exchange.html) :DD

09-04-2011, 03:24 PM
Oh, this is fun too! I'm glad I dared to step out of the NDC thread, and look at the rest of the forum :)

Oh golly! I remember doing this here a couple years ago and had a blast!!! The template submissions were wonderful.

Then the site changed names....

then I forgot where it was [embarassed face, insert here]. Well, I cut down on a lot of places for a lot of reasons, but back in the saddle again.

09-05-2011, 01:42 AM
I am new here but thought this sounded fun. I just finished a layout so I created a template from that layout. I will get it emailed to ulrich.stephanie@gmail.com right now.

If you recognize the colors: I used the swatch for NDC week 1, since I had it loaded in PSE :)

09-05-2011, 10:08 AM

Thanks for the info Kimberkatt.

09-07-2011, 05:47 PM
ooo, yeah... can we make more than one? I have three! lol

no worries Steph... I knew the info was there somewhere from last year ;) Feel free to club me over the head if I overstep my boundaries! :DD

09-07-2011, 09:56 PM
Are we allowed to send another??? Or is 1 what we are supposed to do.
I tend to be very literal and ask a lot of questions.
ps- I'll have the png's correct the first time...next round.

09-08-2011, 03:38 PM
I love the templates everyone has made.
It says they are free. Where do I go to download them?
thank you.

09-08-2011, 05:17 PM
Here's mine. (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/template-exchange/p82462-flower-bird-banner-template.html)

I am so addicted, I had to play again.. here is a second template...
Photo Collage Template (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/template-exchange/p82475-photo-collage-template.html) :c

09-09-2011, 12:06 AM

This is PNG only. I use this template in heritage scrapping, there are places to put datez on the tags on the template. I designed it and named it Beth after my sister. Thanks for the change, can't wait to see the rest.

Here is the link to my gallery to see two layouts using "Beth" MY GALLERY (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/u11687-itsjanw.html)

09-10-2011, 06:39 PM
I decided to do one too. Here is mine:


09-10-2011, 09:56 PM
Would it be okay to make a template pack of more than 1 in a single download, or would you like to have each one listed individually?

09-11-2011, 09:33 PM
i'm going to try and make one, i love a good template. I've only made 1 before and given it away on my blog.

09-11-2011, 10:23 PM
what format are we using just PSD?

09-12-2011, 01:39 PM
These are awesome! Great job ladies! You can make as many as you want! Just email them to me


and then at the end of the month I will put them all together and zip em up nice and PM all the participants the DL link. If you make more then one and want to zip them all together, that's fine, just send me the link!

Ok here is one from me {along with the LO I based it off of}


Keep them coming! I am loving them ladies!

09-12-2011, 01:40 PM
what format are we using just PSD?

What ever you want. I always do PSD, TIFF and PNGs because some programs can only do PNGs.

09-12-2011, 01:43 PM
I love the templates everyone has made.
It says they are free. Where do I go to download them?
thank you.

If you play along, I will send you a DL link at the end of the month with all the templates. If you're uncomfortable making a template, just say you love me and I'll send you the DL link too;) But either way, the templates wont be sent out until the end of the month.

09-12-2011, 03:23 PM
so we need to send you a zip folder with the different formats and a TOU or just a PSD file?
i'm asking lots of questions, i know.

09-13-2011, 08:49 AM
so we need to send you a zip folder with the different formats and a TOU or just a PSD file?

Yes. All formats would be welcome. But you don't HAVE to . LOL make sense? And you can include a TOU some haven't, I am just going to say PU only when I email the mass template pack out. Make sense now? Sorry if I am not being clear. My fingers work faster then my brain sometimes.

09-13-2011, 11:21 AM
i guess i'm making this harder than it needs to be. Here is mine

09-14-2011, 08:25 PM
Here is mine:
