It's always an exciting day when we can sit at our computers and create with My Digital Studio.

What if your creativity goes on hiatus? You know that crazy thing that happens when the "idea library" in your head comes to a screeching halt? Ahhh! This happens to be the VERY place I've been lately.

Photobook templates are a fantastic way to kick start the idea library again. They give you a starting point where you can use the template as-is or beef it up with your own creativity.

I found that once I started with the photobook template—the ideas came rolling in. 

I started with a template from the Lemonade Stand download (a Sale-A-Bration freebie last year). Once I added my photo, I searched for other embellishments from kits that might work with this template.

Before I added my embellishments, I changed the opacity down to 50% on each of the hexagons to create a subtle background so that the Retro Fresh embellishments would pop a little more.

I copied and pasted two hexagons and changed their size to add at the bottom left of my layout. I also added more drop shadow and a mat to go around them to make it stand out.

If you find yourself in a creative rut, try downloading one of our great photobook templates. They are filled with amazing Designer Series Papers, embellishments, and stamp images. Your options are abundant. It makes for a FAST designing and with these QUICK templates.
