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.

Grand Opening at Mscraps

Hi All,

This week is such a busy week. I have a store opening and 2 new releases.

Grand Opening at Mscraps

I am absolutely thrilled to be announcing that Angelclaud ArtRoom can now be found at Mscraps. Some of you might already know, I have been store CT of Mscraps for almost a year now. It’s really already home. If you have never visited Mscraps before, you really should drop by. We have the friendlies, well, and also craziest people there. There won’t be a boring moment. There are also a lot of fantastic designers there and more are making Mscraps their home. So what are you waiting for? Come by and join in the fun!

Oh and my store is having 30% grand opening sale throughout the weekend and I will be giving out random coupon at my facebook page.

New Release at Mscraps: Balancing Act

I was inspired by some gymnastic balancing photos I saw in google where people or animals balanced on ball, beam, etc.

New Release at Browniescraps: Poly Play v1

Poly Play v1 is inspired by Sharon who requested a polygon template. Honestly, I’ve never created a layout or template with polygon before and it turned out to be quite fun.

Guess my new store and win my new release this Friday

Hi All,

A lot of you might already know but Zig Zag Scrap will be closed on October 15th. It is really sad to lose such a wonderful store and community. I will forever be grateful to Mirjam and Rita for my enjoyable short time there.

Happy to announce though that I have received a lot of supports from the scrapbooking community which helped me not to be homeless for a long time. I will open my new store this Friday at a store that is already my home.
