New Twist: Twist N Shout

Hi All,

So sorry about the lots of hiccups this month due to the server upgrade. I’m crossing my fingers that it will be a smooth sailing from here on. Thanks so much for your understanding and support.

The new twist this week is: Twist n Shout. I love this fun template with all the curved arrows. They really create a fun and funky feel. It is available at Mscraps. Use this coupon tnstwistfeb for 40% off the normal price.

Christelle twisted acart_twnshtemp3. She deleted the journaling block and added wordart to the small photo area. She also deleted the circular mat and added background mat & frame. Here she substituted the arrow with another vertical element and added title on top.

Kelly worked with acart_twnshtemp4. She removed the journaling and added a big mask in the background and another photo at top so there is three in a row instead of 2.

Happy Valentine Day!

Hi All,

Due to Mscraps and Scrapflower’s server upgrade, there was no Monday New Twist on Feb 11th. I’m really sorry for the prolonged downtime. It’s taking longer than expected. There are just things that are totally out of our hands and we’re depended on the host company to complete all the processes.

Looking on the good side, today’s Valentine’s Day. My family and I don’t really celebrate V-Day however, I do love the “love is in the air” feel all around me. I might not have a romantic dinner planned or buy chocolates and presents, but I do try to do a little something extra to show my loved ones that I love them!

On this occasion, I would like to share some new layouts that my CT made to celebrate V-Day with one of my older heart template: Where My Heart Is. It is now available at Gingerscraps. In addition here is a 40% off coupon: vdayspecial for that template pack. The coupon is available for one day during V-Day.

Petra created this page with acart_wmhitemp1. She turned the template counter clockwise and then flipped it horizontally so the shadows were facing the right way again at 120 degree angle.

Mecia used the template acart_wmhitemp4 for this page. She rotated the template and added another circle photo.

Lori used acart_wmhitemp2 for this page. She switched the photo space and journal space to make this a more photo-focused page.

Angie also used acart_whmitemp2 for her page. She rotated the template and add an extra journaling card.

New Release : With All My Heart

Hi All,

This week I have another heart-themed template new release. It’s a real lovely template to scrap Valentine-theme pages but it doesn’t have to be all about hearts and love. As you can see from some of my CT inspirations below, you can also scrap a more general themed layout. That’s the wonderful thing about template is that it’s so flexible and you can make it into any pages that you want. With All My Heart is available at Gingerscraps and you can enjoy 20% new release sale throughout the weekend.

New Twist: I Heart You

Hi All,

It’s February and the month of Love. Although I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day (I think everything is overpriced on that day) but I am a romantic girl at heart. So I chose this love related template for the New Twist today: I Heart You. It is available at Mscraps, Gingerscraps, and Scrapflower. It’ll be perfect for your Valentine’s layouts or just a general love-themed layouts or even a totally different themed layout. Use this coupon ihytwistfeb for 40% off the normal price.

Here are some new twist by me and my CT.

This beautiful page is from Misses M Marjoleine. She used acart_ihytemp2. The photo of her daughter is absolutely precious. Overall, she did not change a lot of the template but added some background smears which made the page even more interesting.

I made this page with acart_ihytemp4. I deleted the rectangle paper layer with the journal and title and moved the cluster to more the middle.

Mish used acart_ihytemp3 for her page. She replaced all the hearts with stars to make it into a general boy layout and added some extra elements and layer.

Marcy used acart_ihytemp2 for this page. She moved the smaller photo clusters on the left to the right, just below the bigger photo clusters and removed the journaling.

Here is another layout by Marcy. She used acart_ihytemp3 for this one. Here she swapped the title spot with the journal spot and placed all the clusters in front. I love it how she replaced all the heart elements with cooking elements but the theme of the page is still “love”.
