This month’s featured template designer is Kitty Chen of Kitty Designs. Here’s her story as well as her exclusive tips for keeping it simple!
What inspired you to start your business?
I actually started creating templates more than a year ago, but I have really taken it seriously since January 2010 while I started my own albums. I found out the best templates that fit me are photo-focused templates , where I can show the photos and moments the best.
What do you love most about designing templates?
I think I love every bit of it. The most joyful moment is when I see the final result: the printed album arrived at my desk. Each of my template albums comes from my real projects, either photobooks for me, family, or friends.
Do you have any time-saving tips you swear by?
I am just someone who does things right away, or in a schedule, and that makes my life easier.
What tips do you have for helping scrappers customize a template and give it their own creative spin?
When I use a template (or even a kit), I always choose a photo first, and see the color scheme of the photo, or what is the situation or even pattern of the cloths, and that becomes my guide to pick colors and elements.
