I'd like to give you an example: I recently wrote an article outlining several ways to get out of a writing slump. As I was writing that article, I came up with about 7 or so ideas for getting your brain out of a creative rut with your articles, including some article template ideas and some writing productivity techniques. I submitted the article, and then thought__ "Each of those ideas for getting out of a writing slump needs to be elaborated on and explained further. I can do a new article for each idea." And so I did__so far I've bounced 4 or 5 articles off of that first article, and I have even more ideas that I've gotten from that first article that I haven't written about yet.
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. Adding your own touches, of course, makes the design yours and your scrapbook more interesting and unique.
