This page was made with acart_fallintotemp3. Kelly removed one photo from the bottom plus the frame and added a heap of hearts instead of all the leaves.

Amie used acart_fallintotemp4 for her page. She replaced one of the photo space with title and replaced the leaves scattered with buttons. She also added a smears behind the two bottom photos and a fastener and bow to fasten the top photo.

New Release : Pretty Pair

Hi All,

This week has been so crazy for me. My house and area has been flooded due to heavy rainfalls. The drainage system in Jakarta is pretty bad and smaller flooding are already quite a common occurrence. It’s nothing new to us. But the flood that started Tuesday is really bad and in some parts of our resident area the water is as high as 1 meter. Our house are flooded up till around 60-80cm. We don’t have electricity and clean water so we had to evacuate to the hotel.

I just felt lucky that we could still evacuate and at least I don’t need to worry about contaminated water and that my 3 years old daughter might get sick. Now we are just hoping that the water won’t rise anymore and will recede soon. Although that seems a bit unlikely because the weather forecast more rain for the next few days.

If you’re interested, you can read about the news here: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/southeastasia/view/1248337/1/.html

Anyway, luckily I brought my laptop and external harddrive so I can still more or less work and design.

Here is my new release for this week. It is a double page template. It is also good for p52 weekly layout. You’ll have lots of photos and journal space. I hope you like it!

By Me

For this page I resized and combined two templates together: acart_coatemp1 and acart_coatemp4. I replaced some overlapping the journaling and photo space. I added a lot of smears, stamps, etc. on the background to give it a bit of mixed media look.

New Twist: Cluster Crazy

Hi All,

I am happy to bring the first “New Twist” of 2013. The fantastic thing about template is that you can use it over and over again and just by changing some parts of the template. It could be a drastic change or just a simple an easy change. Every Monday, my team and I will bring you some inspirations on how to re-use the templates that you might already have and give it a totally new look. Additionally, if you don’t have the template, it will be on 40% sale for 1 day during the “New Twist” Day.

Our New Twist product today is Cluster Crazy, which is available at Gingerscraps and Mscraps. Use this coupon code: cctwistjan to get 40% off the normal price.

For her page, Edna used acart_cctemp1. She inverted the whole template to create a new look.

For photoshop users, click on the bottom layer then press shift+click on the top layer to select all the layers. Then go to Edit –> Transform –> Flip Horizontal.

For a different look you can also trip flip vertical or different rotation.

For this page I used acart_cctemp4. I deleted the layering of the big photo and changed the shape to circle. I also deleted the top left circle cluster and replaced it with the word tag. I added a border cluster on the right to balance the busy left parts.

Lori also used acart_cctemp4 but boy as you can see, the design and feel is totally different from mine. She rotated the template and replaced the two smaller photos with cluster and title/date which put the main focus on that gorgeous big photo of her and his son with the matching pajamas.
