digital templates update
We have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you some exciting updates to our digital templates available at the Digital Project Life® store. We value our customers’ opinions, and these changes are a result of the suggestions we have received. Starting today, every template design that is purchased from Digital Project Life will come with three versions of the template: 1. The original digital template 2. New template with square corners 3. New round corners template.
Let’s dive a little deeper into what these changes mean. The square corner templates will allow you to have the squared off edges of your photos and cards for a more streamline look. You may be wondering if you will be able to use the digital card kits with the rounded corners in these new square corners templates. The answer is yes. In some cases you may need to slightly resize the card to cover the entire clipping mask, but the majority of the cards will work just fine. All of the digital kits starting with the 2016 CHA releases now have square corners, making it easier for the cards to work in either the square corner or the round corner templates. All Project Life by Stampin’ Up! and some digital exclusives also have cards with square corners. Make sure to check the previews in the store to see if the kit has square corners.

Updated round corners template — what does that even mean? When we first started working on the Project Life App, we knew we wanted to tweak the spacing of the clipping masks on the templates to make them more uniform and pleasing to the eye. We have matched the spacing of these new templates as closely as we can to the spacing you will find in the app. This is especially great for those of you who like to mix and match app layouts with layouts created on your computer. The change is subtle, but we think you will like it.

Of course we always want you to have access to your original purchase, and this is why we have also included the original version of the digital template in the new downloads. You might prefer this version to the updated version or you might be in the middle of an album and might not want to change template versions. Whatever the case may be, we’ve got you covered.
If you have previously purchased designs G-J, your new download will have additional options for you. Designs G-H are not standard 12×12 sized templates. Because of the configuration of the clipping masks, they are an odd size. With the update we have decided to provide you with not only the updated designs in their original sizing, but also a version with a 12×12 background. This will make it easier for you to print them as individual layouts or compile them into photobooks. You can still cut down the background once it is printed if you prefer.
We have more great news for you. If you have previously purchased a template at Digital Project Life, you will receive an updated link via email to download the new zip file with the updated templates. No need to purchase again. This only applies to templates purchased at Digital Project Life and AC Digitals. We are unable to do this for templates purchased at other websites. Please make sure to check your email for the updated link. If you have used PayPal to purchase templates in the past, please make sure that you check the email address that is associated with your PayPal account. If you are having trouble downloading your updated templates, please wait a little bit and try again. Our download service may be running a little slow due to all of the excitement and traffic. Thanks for your patience!
If you are new to Digital Project Life and would like to learn more about it, please check out our Digital Project Life page. It will walk you through what you need to get started and will also link you to a video tutorial for how to use the digital templates in Photoshop Elements. This tutorial will also work if you are using full-version Photoshop. Our templates are in PSD format, so they are only fully functional in these two programs.
Also, we want to make you aware that the updates are only for the PSD templates for use on your computer with Photoshop. These updates are not related to the Project Life App. The PSD templates are not compatible with the Project Life App and cannot be imported into the app. The good news is that if you are using the app you already have all of these templates available to you. The square corner templates and the most recent round corner templates are already installed in the app and ready for you to use.
We hope you enjoy these new templates!
