Alrighty, here's the first of the 10 templates I'm working on. All of these have the same "feel," so could potentially make a really cute set for a book (hint: more Christmas gift ideas).
A few things about each of these to keep in mind:
1) The white grid lines and border are a layer unto themselves -- very easy to remove if you want no grid lines.
2) If you want to have no borders on the edges, just select all layers and expand it so they're off the page.
3) Each template can be rotated, so you can really have 4 different designs. Or flip them for even more "looks" to the design.
As I've mentioned, I'm not really an "elements" scrapper -- I can just never make them work. Also, the Photoshop I'm working with is version 5.0, which doesn't support PNG files -- makes it REALLY hard to scrapbook! And the computer I'm on is definitely not intended to do graphics. In other words, it keeps crashing. So my LO in the example is for example only -- I'm definitely going to spruce it up when I get the chance. That said... if anyone else has examples using this template (or any)... include a link in the comments section, so that I (and everyone else) can see how you used it! Inspiration is a wonderful thing! :) I'd especially love to see how you work papers and elements into these designs.

(Let me know if there are problems with the file -- as I mentioned, I'm using an old version of Photoshop.)
