Using templates to create your scrapbook pages can be a great timesaver. Scrapbook templates help you be consistent in cropping your photos and in creating a more organized look. You can place them over photos, and they're good tools for all your pages. Examples of the types of templates available include templates for journaling, cropping, and layout. And many templates are available without charge. Here are some reasons to use free scrapbooking templates.
Another way you can go is to create your own templates. You can base these around the types of articles you enjoy or you can visit other directories to see if you can find a general idea that gives you the ability to come up with your own template. Using your own articles may help you come up with your own templates as well. If your articles are along the same lines, you should be able to come up with a number of templates. Those will give you ideas for new articles and that for sure will help you get through your writer's block.
