*Blending* Templates. It is quite conceivable that you might want to use more that one FotoInspired DoubleTemplate to create your weekly layout.
This week, I selected FotoInspired DoubleTemplates (FIDT) No. 52 and 20, choosing to combine them into one layout, to create my double page spread.
I created a new 24 X 12 300DPI layout and moved the layers from each sids of the FIDT No. 52 template to my new layout in reverse order, so that part B was the first side of the spread, part B was the second.
Next, I then used the FotoInspired Masks within FIDT No. 20 to replace masks in my layout. For example, 2 landscape style masks replaced the large portrait mask located in the center of the first page.
I repeated this process for pairs of the small landscape masks, replacing them with a larger portrait style mask. You can, of course, switch out any of the elements of an FIDT to customize a layout to create variation and better support your photos.
