Template Challenge

Guess what?!?!!!  Today I am guest blogging over on Yvonne Yam's blog "Do More With Less"!!!  I started following Yvonne's blog when I saw some of her creations on Card Patterns.  I then visited her blog and discovered that she has a natural talent for creating the most wonderful scrapbook layouts.  She has the ability to turn normal everyday events into fabulous memories.
Okay, so now onto what I am guest blogging about, and no, it is not scrapbooking - Yvonne's already an expert on that topic!  She asked me to share some tips on templates.  I have so much fun creating gift sets, so of course I said yes.

I am also issuing a challenge to you!  Create a new non-card or layout project.  Ideally, create something using a template, but even a tag or altered item would be great.  Now I know templates can be intimidating, but so long as you have a printer, I think you can do it!!!  I am even going to sweeten the challenge by offering one random participant 3 templates from Perfect Presentation!  Link up your creation on Yvonne's blog here.  Plus you can also read some tips and more from me.   Yeah, as if you don't get enough from me in one blog!


The card is based on Sketch #82 from Card Patterns.

Smiles,
Julie
