Closing Store Sale at Gingerscraps and Mscraps

Hi all,

I’m quite sad to announce that I will be closing my stores at Gingerscraps and Mscraps. I’ve really enjoyed my time at both stores and it’s a very hard decision to make. I’ll still be designing and will be moving to a new store, which will be announced soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this 40% closing store sale.

I’m starting off with a 50% sale of ALL PRODUCTS at all of my stores: Mscraps, Gingerscraps, and Scrapflower.

Birthday Sale, Two New Releases, a Guest Store, and Blog Train

Hi All,

March is going to be a busy busy month for me because it’s my birthday month! I have so many things planned for this month. Let’s take a look at all the fun things in details.

Birthday Sale
My birthday is on Mar 4th so I am having a birthday sale from Mar 1st – Mar 7th. Everything at all my stores are 32% off.

In addition to the birthday sale, I am the featured designer at Mscraps for the week and if you are a Mscraps newsletter subscribers you can get this template free. If you are not a subscriber, you will get the info on how to get this freebie as soon as you subscribed before March 5th. Just click on the image preview for more info.

It’s the third template from my previous two OHAPPYDAY freebies at Mscraps and Scrapflower’s forum. There will be 1 more freebie in the month of March. If you download them all, you will have a full free product.

Guest Store: Scrapbook-Bytes

I will be guesting at Scrapbook Bytes for the month of March. I am really excited to be guesting there because SBB is the place where I started out scrapbooking. I learned so much by participating in their challenges and of course they have some awesome designers and community.

Check out my guest store at Scrapbook-Bytes here.

Two New Releases

How are you all doing with the p365? I am proud to report that I am still continuing it despite the fact that I did miss 1 day of photo. ūüė¶

March Petal Picks: Artsy Blend 1
We are starting monthly Petal Picks products at Scrapflower. It’s a bit different from previous Petal Picks. Basically, it’s more of a build your own collaboration. You can find all kind of different assorted products with the same color scheme that you can mix and match to make your own collaboration. Here is mine for this month.

Sale, New Release, and Freebies

Hi All,

It’s just so fantastic to have Mscraps and Scrapflower’s server upgrade completed. It has been a long process. To celebrate and to make up for the downtime we are having 30% storewide sales through Feb 24th. I have also added some re-releases in the store so don’t forget to check them out. Don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter for an exclusive newsletter freebie and get 10% coupon that’s valid even during on sale.

My new release for this week is Circle Sparkle. I think those dotted frames are really pretty and can add extra sparkle to your page. I hope you like them too. It’s available at Mscraps and Scrapflower and is currently 30% off.

Here are some CT inspirations.

Free Templates

Also, I have two template freebies available in the What’s The Buzz thread of Mscraps and Scrapflower. So also, don’t forget to pick those up.

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 Twist: I Heart You

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”.

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.
