Best Things: Templates with a Twist

I'm always on the lookout for good templates. Even though I like making my own, I find that I can whip a page together pretty quickly with a template - which is a great treat when I'm interested in accomplishing something with little time or effort.

Imagine my delight then when I discovered that Jessica Sprague has started Template Tuesday. There are other Template Tuesday's out there, but Jessica has a rather delightful twist. Every Tuesday you can download a new template designed by someone on her team. Use the template and post it in her Template Tuesday Gallery by the end of the month. For every week you participate you get 1 point. After collecting 10 points, you get $5 off a minimum purchase of $10 in the shop. I know that costs you $5, but you're getting at least $10 worth of awesome digi supplies.

Even if you don't upload your layout into her gallery, the templates are definitely worth getting for your own stash.

You can find the templates at
