Here's the template I started with, it was a freebie by Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals called EmailInspiration22711.
I wanted to add something to that space in the upper right and I just bought a bunch of really fun, clustery templates by Little Green Frog Designs (with a coupon from The Daily Digi, here). I chose this template and wanted to use that cluster in the upper left.
So I selected all the layers in that cluster and dragged them onto the Katie Pertiet template, holding down the shift key to make sure they landed in the same spot on that template as they were on the original. I couldn't select all the layers at once, as they were interspersed with layers in the bottom right cluster, so the shift key was very important to make sure they all were aligned correctly. It looked like this after that process.
Cilenia Curtis has coming out this week, called Beautiful Mess 6. The photos have mostly pink and orange in them, but there are a couple pops of turquoise, so I wanted the background to be mostly blue. There is a really cool piece of blue artsy paper in this kit. Here's what it looks like.
Beautiful Mess 1 and Beautiful Mess 6).
I love how these bright papers really highlight how fun Emma is and the fun we had doing this photo shoot with her new clothes. I loved combining two different templates, and I hope to do it again sometime.
Have you ever combined templates or do you like to find one that will work as it is?
P.S. I won the drawing for the challenge at The Daily Digi! I won $10 to Micheline Martin's store!
