Template Tips

I attended a Stampin’ Up! Regional Seminar in Michigan last month and came back with some great tips and techniques. One of the presenters showed us how she creates her cards and scrapbook pages using templates she has made from our many Big Shot dies, framelits and edgelits.

I took my Labels Framelits and ran them through the Big Shot using our Vellum Cardstock. I then labeled my templates. The numbers you see on the templates correspond to the size of the framelit. I mark my framelits with a Sharpie so I can quickly tell which size corresponds to the template and it’s ready to use.

Now that I’ve gone through most of my Big Shot dies and made templates, it’s time to pull out the punches and make templates for them. This has helped me tremendously with my layouts for my projects. Hope you enjoy this little tip!
