American Greetings Free Wallpaper


I really love changing my desktop wallpaper, depending on my current mood. Sometimes it full of love, maybe exciting, or I'm really need a calmness, total blank, desperate, maybe I'm depress or maybe I'm full of energy.

That is why desktop wallpapers is my favorite items which I usually search in the internet.

My favorite website to go is American Greetings whereby they have lots of free wallpaper. Below are some wallpapers that I repetitively use for my laptop screen.

For more, you can visit the website at here:

ps: I'll be going away for 1 month. I'll try my best to not leave this page quiet. :D

Picture of my heart


Grand title to create the impact (what am I saying at this midnight time?)

Okay, now I'm doing an express posting.

1) Got a mail contain a photobook by Photobook Malaysia. I feel so great and happy about the output. The service from Photobook is great. A long time to download the software ( a very big software ) but it's user friendly and contain lots of beautiful inventories.

Now there is promotion that only cost you RM99 for photobook like me. The design is actually a ready design. You may go to my previous post about this matter :D. 

2. My project with the engagement picture fail but I transfer all the picture to this cute album. This album is small which I can placed all the picture without leaving any blank space. There are about 40 pages for special occasion pictures.

Only cost me about RM10 :D

3. My job now is readying the wedding invitation card. Actually the pattern is in purple but the editing and lighting made it looks like as if it was a blue instead. I'm trying my best to make sure it's folded still by leaving a heavier item on it overnight (refer to second pic below). Huh lots more to go!

I'll show the whole design later once the invitation completed. Let's it be a surprises to the guest yeah.

Okay good night and sleep well.

Wishing you a safe life especially people at Japan.

Simple Design with Microsoft Power Point


Today I wanted to share with you guys on how to design simple patterned using Microsoft Power Point. I'm using Microsoft Power Point 2007 which is lesser feature compared to Microsoft Power Point 2010 especially on shapes and colours.

This pattern is currently what I did for the tutorial.

Step by step on how to do this pattern.

1. Open you power point and choose a blank page.

2. Go to menu Insert. Choose Shapes and select Cross under Basic Shapes.

3. Arrange the shapes accordingly like image below. Make sure you utilize the whole page even if it will go beyond the page sizes.

4. Save the Power Point as your master copy.

5. Save again as picture by selecting document type either .jpeg or .gif.

6. Open the picture using Microsoft Office Picture Manager. You'll see that all the image outside Power Point ranges has not included in the picture (auto-crop).

7. Crop the picture accordingly.

8. Tadaaaa.... you now have your own pattern. :D

This pattern can be used in many way such like this gift tag.

It's easy right? Without using all the fancy and complicated software available in the market, you can design and create your own pattern.
