Do you like templates? Or are you unsure of how to use them, but would like to learn? Come join me for a template chat on Wednesday. All participants will get a template to work with. And all participants who finish a layout with the template in time will get 2 more templates from me!


9:30pm est
8:30pm cst
7:30pm mst
6:30pm pst


In the chat room here at GingerScraps. Hope to see you there!


We are in the chat room and I will check back here through out the next hour. I am not doing instructions tonight.
This is the first one I have done so let me know suggestions afterwards or questions along the way.
I hope this goes well :)



Here's my layout using Ellie Lash's Just Like You kit:

YAY! Welcome! The chat room is in the upper right corner of this forum. I will give out the link to download the template at the begining of the chat. WHOOT! Looks like I am going to have to host more of these template chats.

I will be going through the all the basics for all the newbies to templates too. This should be FUN!!!

Do we have to be in the Chatroom to play or can we stay here in the forum? Thanks

trina513
02-24-2011, 01:57 AM
I hope I can play - I'm a little worried about being able to DL the template and still have time to scrap - sometimes my internet crawls backwards....LOL

marshmella
02-24-2011, 01:58 AM
I was going to only put the download link in the chat, but I totally forgot that some have issues with chatroom so I will put the link in the first thread too.

I didn't do any istructions. I've never done this before. So I thought I would help out the newbies and everyone can give out all there template tips. We will see how this goes!! I didn't really think instructions were needed though. ?? Any suggestions with this would be great because I want to do more of these.

You should be fine! I will give everyone until 10:30pm cst (2 hours). Do you think that will be enough time? Going to get dd to bed quick!

Sniksnak
02-24-2011, 02:04 AM
I'm here early. Can you give us any hints as to how many pics we need? :)

nancym
02-24-2011, 02:11 AM
Ok, I'm alittle confused.... Are you just going to give us a template and we just make a layout using that or is there going to be directions on what to do every 10 mins.... Sorry I just don't want to get lost along the way.

Just giving the template tonight. I don't really know what I would do with instructions since the template is all layed out. I don't know if others do this type of chat. I've never done one or been to one.

Suggestions for another one would be awesome. If everyone thinks instructions are needed I can do that next time. What do you think?

I could maybe help after I see what the template looks like... I've never done a Speed Scrap before so I may not be able to help... ha ha

altimasport
02-24-2011, 02:19 AM
I don't know either, I haven't ever been to a template chat. I'm excited though. As far as directions maybe next time you could give the amount of certain elements you want ex 6 buttons, 5 flowers, ect....I think it will be fun no matter what! The cool thing about a template is that everybody has their own take on it.

:) I've done the speed scraps a lot and thought this would be fun for those who never have done templates so they can learn and ask as they go. And fun for all those template lovers too. Who doesn't like FREE templates?!?! We will just go with the flow tonight. Then everyone can put there input in afterwards!!! WHOOT!

nancym
02-24-2011, 02:22 AM

Totally!!! And you can always moves things around, flip the template and use what you want for them!!! I like how they don't have to be spot on! I'm heading to the chat room now, but will check back here often!

kandiced
02-24-2011, 03:03 AM
On the template...where the title is ...Is there a way to keep that look could I just start to type what I want and the font and look stays the same? Or do dI have to start over?

marshmella
02-24-2011, 03:09 AM
I used times new roman for the font. Then I applied a white stroke to it as big as you like. Then you have to simplify/rasterize it to be able to shadow it. Once it's simplified you can't edit it. VERY simple to recreate. I do it ALL the time!

kandiced
02-24-2011, 03:18 AM
Oh....that is a good tip thanks! I will have to remember that.

Ok - I was going to be closer to ontime - but darn photoshop froze when I was saving it small for putting in the gallery!! I'll be back tomorrow to leave love! Thanks for the awesome chat & template - I like how mine turned out! It's a miracle I was this close to finishing on time - considering I didnt really start scrapping till the last hour!! Hee hee! And for those that dont know me - rarely do I scrap only 3 pics per page - so of course I had to alter the template and make it my own :D 6 photos is a BIT better ;)
