My friend Trudi, who is getting married on Sunday, had the exact invitation she wanted in her head but could not find one available. She used MDS to create the perfect one. Very soon, she will be a guest blogger to show you a picture and tell you her MDS story. Stay tuned!

Photography Tips

My Digital Studio / Digital/ Scrapbook

As I was getting our camera ready to pack for our trip, I was thinking about all the pictures we'll take. Thought I'd share some of my favorite tips for taking the best photos and preserving them, too!

  • Fill up the entire frame and move in close to your focal point. Focus on the eyes when you are photographing people.
  • Whenever possible, use natural light instead of a flash. Early morning or late afternoon lighting is best; it's softer.
  • If you are shooting a group of people, focus on heads, not feet or legs.
  • When photographing a seated group, stand up on a chair above the group and have everybody look up towards the camera. This provides the most flattering angle for the shot.
  • Store photos in a dark, cool place out of direct sunlight. These days, most people take digital pictures so this isn't a problem.
  • Keep your original photos intact; you don't want to crop a one of a kind photo; make copies and crop those.
  • Use as little adhesive as possible when putting photos onto your pages. Another plus for digital scrapbooking.

If you haven't taken a peek at Stampin' Up!'s digital program, My Digital Studio, check it out.  I doubt you'll find a more robust, easy to use program for the price – under $20! You can even get a thirty day free trial before purchasing so you've got nothing to lose.

Party Banner

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ My Digital Studio / Digital

This week I'll finish sharing the projects from our girls, INK “Celebrate The Everyday” class. This banner was created using several products from Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog:  Perfect Pennants Framelits, Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack, and the Spiral Flowers Original Die. You'll probably notice some Burlap Ribbon, too. This banner is so easy to put together; let me just give you a few tips that will make assembling your roses a snap:

Break down the fibers in your cardstock by using a bone folder or pencil. Just run the tool over the paper several times and you will feel it soften. Start rolling your flower using the end of a pencil and then once you have a solid center started, go ahead a remove the pencil and keep forming the flower. Lastly, use a hot glue gun to attach the flower petals to the small circle at the end. If you don't, the flower could come apart easily.

Did you think the letters forming “WISH” were stamped? They're not! They were created using Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio Software, by filling in a punch. If you have not looked into the fabulous product, you just might want to give a look:
