Could someone tell me the difference between a stacker, a cluster, a template and a quick page. I'm new and sometimes one of these looks like another. I just want to know exactly what I am buying before I buy it!
Fabulous idea!! Like so many, I wish it had been available when I was first starting out. It would have saved me a lot of frustration!!
A stacker is normally papers stacked with elements tucked into the edges. https://www.godigitalscrapbooking.co...ducts_id=13445

A template is generally a quick and easy way to make a layout, it has the layers all there you can clip your papers and add your choice of elements, you can move the pieces around, or flip it to make it look anyway you want. It is basically to get you going, great for when your mojo has gone..lol https://www.godigitalscrapbooking.co...ducts_id=15432
A QP is a ready made layout...you just add you photo/photos and save. https://www.godigitalscrapbooking.co...ducts_id=15455
I hope this helps..
Thank you so much vicki23 for taking the time to explain so well, and with examples! The QP's look very handy, and very pretty. I will look for some with more than one photo space, they do come that way I presume?
I will try the clusters too and I've already got some templates.
Just one more question if you don't mind. So the Stackers are like patterned paper? You can't put things between the layers? You lay everything on top of the stacker?
Sorry that was 3 questions!! :-)
Brenda, Stackers are flattened JPEG files so you cannot easily tuck anything within the layers. They are patterned papers which some already have elements tucked between layers.
So usually you just lay your photos and other elements on top of the one stacker JPEG.
You can play around with an eraser and give the illusion of your own other elements tucked into the layers but very fiddly and time consuming.
