Helen used the Colorado template with the small blocked clipping masks to display photos and journaling spots. Her layout documents a trip to Colorado. She got 10 photos on this page!
Ellie used the large Kansas shape clipping mask and outline to highlight an amazing photo of the countryside, and added small photos and elements along the edge.
Heather used the Arizona template with the large blocked clipping masks, and filled them all with photos, recording the memory of her friends' visit and sight seeing tour.
I, Tiffany, used the California shape clipping mask to create a simple home decor project.
Bethany used the Nevada template with the small clipping masks to fill in with photos and patterned papers, creating a patchwork quilt look. She also included the banner state title.
Helen used the Utah banner title, using it as a clipping mask for a single beautiful panorama shot of Bryce Canyon.
WendyN used the Colorado banner title on this amazing page, using separate photos to clip to each letter. And if you look closely, you'll see the paper behind the letters is a map! What a perfect detail for this photo record of their road trip.

Here are all the state templates that have been released to date:
