I am trying to create a Project Template for my organization. We have a standard "ScratchWorkspace" that has point, line and polygon featureclasses set up with complex domains and subtype. We want this "ScratchWorkspace" to be COPIED into new projects, so that every project we start has its own ScratchWorkspace and featureclasses. We do not want this to be referencing a single GDB because the GDB would get extremely full. We need a copy of thag gdb in every project though. Same goes for an "archive" GDB. Every project needs its own GDB. How would i go about doing this? I am competent with Python and Arcpy, but would prefer to now have to go that route as others in the organization are not as familiar. 

also important to note i would like to reference folders that have styles in them as we update the stypes often. 

is there a way to do this?

thanks!
