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.
Theme Sites. These are of course thematic, which will be helpful on what theme you want to use in a page. Scrapbooking is like Wordpress. If you are making a website powered by Wordpress, you will look for nice themes that you can work on instead creating your own. It should be appropriate in the long run as you post and update it. In scrapbooking, templates will stick for a long time after some time of adding all the elements, and it will be the basis of the overall look that you can't change. Photo Sharing Sites. These sites are both theme and group sites at the same time. Photo sharing is mostly their goal, but I have seen scrappers post their layouts or projects. So you will get templates or their ideas as well.
