I have had some great questions. Some of them about scaling. All of the templates are scalable. The 12x12's can be resized to 6x6 or whatever square size works for you with no distortion. The 8.5x11's are best scaled to 4x5.2 if you want them to fit in a 4x6 brag book with no distortion. Maybe a set of 4x6 brag book templates will have to be next on my list after the boy templates! So many things to do.

YES, I am still working on the boy templates. They are almost done and there are 9! I've been soooo busy. I decided to do two sets though. The first set will be a set of 9 little boy templates (those are the ones that are almost done) and the other set will be for big boys (teenagers...and yes, husbands too!) Here is a sneak peak for you!

These will be in my store very soon!

Thanks to everyone who purchased stuff from my store over the weekend! I appreciate it! The sale at GDS went great!

Andrea, I love all of your templates. I admit, I'm addicted to templates :) That rocket ship is adorable!

Is there a tutorial out there that you know of that tells how to create your own templates? I've got a million ideas running around in my head for templates but I'm not sure how to start making one in photoshop.
Take care,

Hmmm...I don't know of a tutorial for creating templates. I think the best thing to do is just jump in and start creating your layouts in shades of black/white/grey. Make sure your all of your layers are rasterized, including text layers (labels). Make sure you crop the image to get rid of any thing outside of the canvas (Select-->All, then Image-->Crop). Save them in PSD and PNG. I include each layer in PNG also. You can find scripts floating around the interent that will export the layers to PNG.

My Little Ironies
