NEW Templates!

They’re a best-seller! Whether it’s for cards, scrapbook pages, altered art or decorated journals, templates save your customers time and money while offering dozens of options for wonderful techniques. This fall, we’re delighted to offer three new template styles. Here they are:

Susan’s Slide Mount Mania Template

Slide mounts are hot! Now you can create your own slide mounts and accessories to perfectly decorate cards and album pages. Here are 5 new slide mount shapes—not seen anywhere else—plus envelopes, ribbon slides and tags.

Susan’s Office Envelopes Template

Office-inspired embellishments make great scrapbook page accents and card focals. Paper engineer Susan Cobb makes it easy for you to create your own unique envelopes and matching tags! Make these from cardstock, patterned paper, vellum, glimmer or suede paper, then ink them, chalk them or spritz them with walnut ink…you’ll wonder what you did without it!

Susan’s Pockets & Tags

These tiny pockets and tags are adorable! Simply cut, trace and fold to get one-of-a-kind scrapbook page embellishments and card focals. You’ll have sweet little pockets in totally unique shapes plus tag shapes to slip inside a pocket or use alone. You’ll use this versatile template again and again!

About Our Templates

Paper Pizazz® templates are made of durable plastic; they’re three-hole drilled for easy storage. Gridlines are printed onto the clear plastic for perfect placement. Each template retails for just $4.99.

Best Way to Sell Templates?

As with any scrapbooking tool, templates sell best when the customer knows how to use them! I know I’ll sell an amazing amount of templates whenever I teach or demonstrate them. Try a quick demo on a weekend afternoon, or integrate the templates in a class project. You’ll see the sales!
