T is for Scrapbooking with Templates
Templates are great for beginning scrapbookers as well as those who have been doing them for years. The idea behind a template is to provide you with a specific way to display your pictures on your page. Some templates are hard plastic. You line up your pictures under the template and cut them out, according to the placement that makes you happy. It is an easy way to complete an attractive page.
The hard plastic templates can be purchased from many scrapbooking sites. With a little work, you can also copy free templates available online. There are hundreds of free templates from a variety of sources. When I am stumped, I would often look at a template and tweak it to make me happy.
