Plain or Fancy? Template MashUp Challenge

The Template MashUp Challenge is very simple: just design a page by remixing and reimagining the pieces and parts of two chosen templates. There are thousands of great Layered Templates at Katie Pertiet Designs. It’s always fun to look through the templates and choose two to mash together. For the next Template MashUp Challenge, I have chosen the following templates, one is pretty fancy and the other is a little plainer. These two templates are on sale this week.

Our Creative Team has five great inspiration pages to give you some ideas of ways to mash the two chosen templates. We hope you will be inspired to create your own mashed up page and post it in our Template Challenge Gallery.

The first page is by Candy (cnewby). Wasn’t it clever the way she matched  the background to Ryder’s B? Her pictures are so cute!

I love to see a page with older photos. The next page by Julie (MaggieMae) is just such  page! These photos from the 90s and Julie’s sweet journaling make a very special page!

Merrilee’s (digigrandma) page commemorates a very special event in her family-an engagement! The fun tilt of Merr’s photo paired with the sunburst create a real celebratory feel to her page. Those great hearts are a perfect addition to an engagement page.

The stunning colors of the photos on Lori’s (lmaggs)  page are definitely the star of her beautiful page. I love the way she recolored the doilies to match the flowers. She also made the sunburst very subtle to help call attention to the photos without competing with them.

We just helped our great-granddaughter celebrate her first birthday so, of course, my page had to include lots of pink, flowers and a heart! Luckily these were available in the chosen templates!

We hope you’ve been inspired to create your own plain and/or fancy mash up and post it in the Template Challenge Gallery. Don’t forget to also post in the May Challenges Sign-in thread to earn a valuable coupon to the KPD store.
