Yes, you only have to pick two of the templates to use out of the four in the pack. Have fun!

Yay! Templates!!! Love them!
I've never tried a "big photo" template before. So thins will be fun! And all those lovely new kits to work with, I love mixing and matching with kits also.

Janet suggested blending the big photo into paper which I've always wanted to try. Can anyone suggest a good tut on the process for PSE?

Thanks!

The various items are simply placeholders. You can use any shape, or size of flower OR not even use a flower ... use something else.

The absolute easiest way to get started with blending is to layer your photo on top of the paper, and select your photo layer in the layers palette, and then try each blend mode. If you kind of like the way one looks, use your opacity slider and see if that makes you happier with the effect.

Oh, and sometimes you get totally different looks if you stack your textured paper on top of your photo and then use blend modes on the paper. Try both ways to see what you like best.

Hope this helps.

Not sure if it is just me but the gallery for NDC kits for week one is showing up as empty. Is anyone else having an issue like that?

thank you for the use of these templates. i'm not a big fan of big photo templates so this was quite challenging for me.

i converted the templates into an 8x10 size and flipped them.

Just to clarify.... even though Week2 designers kits have clusters... we are not suppose to use any of the clusters? That was the rule for the other two weeks so wanted to make sure we shouldn't use clusters this week.

I'd play it safe and say no clusters because it was a rule the last two weeks. Manda/Dani/Jill can correct me if I'm wrong!
