Groups and forums _ Although not as organized and pretty_looking as standard websites, these forums contain a lot of information and useful downloads as shared by their members. Most of these information and downloads are only available for those who sign up, so joining a group or two will be very helpful indeed. Not only that, but the social aspects of these groups or forums allow you to communicate with other members. You can also choose to search for certain groups or members with similar interests as yours.
Crafts Sites. For a broader category, craft sites are the next best places to find templates. This is broad in a sense that they have listed sites for different types of arts and crafts like beadworks, candle making, and ceramics. Not all these do_it_yourself sites can literally hand out free templates, but will give you enough inspiration and idea to creating one. But it is best to browse on categories like drawing, gifts, paper crafts, patterns, or rubber stamping. Scrapbooking is also under this category.
