There is a lot to be said about the time_saving benefits of using scrapbooking templates. If you've ever spent hours trying to think of a theme for your next project, you will know what I mean. You'd have to choose colors, designs, shapes, and layouts. But with scrapbooking templates, you can avoid all that, plus also avoid looking for different scrapbook ideas and then trying to find suitable embellishments for the theme you choose.
Of course, the reason why you would like your memories to be mounted to a scrapbook instead of a photo album, is because you would like it to be special as much as possible. When you create a scrapbook of your own, you do not have limitations in adding as much creativity as you want, unlike photo albums, you are entailed to use only the spaces that are allotted for pictures. And since photo albums are ready made, it's difficult to make a personal touch for your own preference.
