Make Your Own Digital Template

Design by Sande Krieger

To speed up the design process and save a few bucks, create your own digital template that you can use again and again. A digital template, much like a sketch, makes it easy to repeat a basic structure on multiple album pages. First, open a new document in your image-editing software that's the size of your album page. On a new layer, draw rectangles with the Rectangle tool. Rasterize the shapes by choosing Layer>>Rasterize>>Layer.
