The other design factor aside from the text is the imagery that you can use. Many of the newsletter templates will come equipped with basic clip art or graphics. Others will include areas where you can paste in your own graphs, photographs, or other graphic items that help round out the information. It's important to remember that the first thing that people often look at, even before the headlines, are the images, so make sure that they are strong ones that are eye_catching. Color newsletters also tend to be more appealing than those in black and white, though they can cost a bit more to print.
These are just a few ideas about using free scrapbooking templates for your next scrapbooking project. Whether you want a complete page template or elements, you can find them at one of many websites dedicated to scrapbooking. Not only do they offer the template, most of them also offer careful instructions that show you how to use it.
