ENABLE ME: CU Templates for Albums

I have recently realized... I have a little miniature obsession for small albums.

I have made several hybrid or paper albums, with and without photos. I have one right here on my desk that is a paper bag album and is literally a blank album with just background papers, waiting to be filled with whatever project I decide to use it for. But I like looking at the empty paper bag album and just enjoying the papers I chose. They have little doodles and details on them so they are pretty just as they are to me :)

I have one small problem. I have a little trouble with creating layouts without some sort of visual inspiration. I am your typical Template lover. I really love to work with a template and then make it my own. I love to take a nice balanced starting point and move forward, confident that my layout will look good no matter what I do because it started out with balance lol.

As a scrapbook designer, I am always looking for good templates for commercial use as well. Especially the kind I could use to make miniature albums with my scrapkits for my customers with.

So, friends, I need your help. Enable me. Leave me a note in my comment box with your favorite commercial use template linked up. It has to be something I can use to make a album with, whether it be a quickpage album, a bracet album, a bragbook, etc.

Everyone who suggests a CU item and leaves me an email to contact them at will get a little thank you from me, up to 40 people. Please I really want a lot of options to look at! I have a lot of albums to work on, and like a variety.

Sine at Scraporchard has some really cool templates. I went to see if she had any CU but it looks like the store is currently down. Scrapmatters (http://scrapmatters.com/shop/home.php?cat=21) has several CU ones but I have never used them. Good luck with your project.

Hey Elizabeth - Hope your holidays went well.

I think I know what you are taking about as in templates to make hybrid projects.

Digitals has some great designers there that do some... SarahB Designs is one that I know of... http://digitalscrapbookpages.com/digitals/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=247_236

Hope that is what you are looking for. If not, let me know. I stalk almost all the shops so I might know of another place if I am not thinking of the right thing. Good luck.

you could make a "tag" album with one of your tags that you allready offer as CU like this one here

http://myscrapshop.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10_11&products_id=1029

as a matter of fact i just might make a cute little album using that because i'm sure i have it in my pillowgirl stash! LOL! It would not be CU though of course...

Christ Haig and Lilach Oren have some cute ones at CU.com but i'm sure all of this you allready know! sorry i'm not much help!

off to design....

Hi Elizabeth!
I have some lovely CU Freebie Templates in my stash...for example http://88designs.blogspot.com/ and http://www.deliciousscraps.com/ both have offered several in the past. I will email you a jpg of some of them but as it is against most designers wishes to pass on their work, I hesitate to send you the templates themselves.
