Finding the best scrapbooking templates depends on a number of different issues, including what your specific needs are and the technology you have available to you. You should also consider how much you are interested in spending on the templates for your scrapbooking work, as this will certainly dictate the types of templates you will be likely to find. One of the best ways to find a number of different scrapbooking templates that may work for you is to look at scrapbooking layouts similar to what you are considering using, and see what other people made work in their own designs.

Scrapbooking templates are measured out and designed elements of a scrapbook that can be purchased, copied, printed, or otherwise used to create different shapes for use in a scrapbook. These can include thematic shapes that embellish on the content of a scrapbook, such as maple leaves, pine trees, and a number of other shapes that can represent different occasions or holidays. They can also be matting or framing for pictures to be used in a scrapbook, which can help create a more polished or professional final look. You should consider if you want to find free scrapbooking templates on the Internet, or if you are willing to buy books or magazines with templates in them.


One of the easiest ways to find the best scrapbooking templates for your needs is to first consider what it is you want from the templates you are looking for. If you just want some general shapes or frames for future scrapbooking, then you might simply browse through some template books at your local craft store. Similarly you may be able to find dozens or hundreds of different scrapbooking templates on numerous websites across the Internet, which can usually be printed and used free of charge or with a membership to a larger website.

If you are looking for some specific scrapbooking templates, however, then you should try typing that specific shape or frame type into an Internet search engine. You may also find some layouts similar to what you want to create, and if so, you may be able to find the template the person used to make the scrapbook you like. If you are looking for a particular theme, such as for a certain holiday, then you might also look for older issues of scrapbooking or crafts magazines from the month before or during that holiday. These can often provide you with scrapbooking templates that were published in previous years and that you may have missed in looking at more current issues.
