FREE Template

This template was inspired by my hybrid layout L O V E (click for credits):

L O V E

L O V E Details:

L O V E Details

Tips and Tricks:

  • I printed a beautiful digital design by Vera Lim on textured cardstock for the background of my page.
  • When I distressed the black and white photos (printed in a photo lab) with sandpaper and scratched them with a needle other color layers were exposed.
  • I used circle punches to highlight special details from a few color photos.
  • The verse was stamped onto vellum paper, and the word “Love” was printed onto another piece of vellum paper, then I layered the two to create an elegant effect.

I know some of you are afraid to leave empty “white space” areas on your pages, but I really think that’s what makes this design work, especially when using the big swirls!

Here is a digital page I made with this template (click here for credits):

Grandma Loves You

    Beautiful !!! Thanks a lot ♥ for the template.

  28. Kelleigh February 15, 2008 at 1:06 am

    LOVED the template and used it right away for a digital page (which I printed and added real flowers and rhinestones to) and my Valentine’s Day cards. Awesome.

    I have a question, though. You printed your layout onto textured cardstock, right? Was there anything special about your textured cardstock, or is it just the regular stuff you can pick up at your scrapbooking store? I would love to print on textured, but I didn’t think anyone did that . . . Free me from my rut!

  29. Kelleigh February 19, 2008 at 12:57 pm

    Hey! Thanks for your answer about printing on textured cardstock. Really helpful.

    Thought I would let you know that I updated my layout to make it hybrid (adding flowers and jewels!). Go check it out!

    I’m trying to figure out the scanning thing, so the colors are a bit off, but you get the picture!

  30. Mom February 26, 2008 at 3:00 pm

    I just saw what you did with the pic of Gabriel and me–beautiful!
