Take Better Vacation Photos

Project Life by Stampin' Up!/ Scrapbook

Hey stampers! I've got some great tips today to help you take better vacation photos! Summer is just around the corner and we'll all be off on some fun trips. You might also be sneaking away for a long weekend over spring break.

Follow some of these ideas and you'll end up with some awesome shots that will work perfectly in your scrapbooks or Project Life memory system.

  1. Start with a clean lens, whether using your camera phone or your $3,000 Canon.
  2. If your travels take you to an aquarium, don't use the flash when you're photographing…you'll get a big flash and no fish!
  3. Don't ruin a beautiful photo by putting the light BEHIND your subject. Switch the scene OR use the HDR mode on your camera which will balance the light and dark areas.
  4. Take multiple shots instead of just one. Someone's eyes will always be shut or you'll get a random tourist running through. You'll  get tired of answering “who's that” when sharing your photos after the trip.
  5. When you've lined up the perfect shot, take a big breath and exhale…THEN snap it. Believe it nor not, that's when your hands will be most steady.
  6. Don't shoot everything dead center….that's boring. Shoot with people or objects to the side.
  7. Landscapes by themselves CAN be pretty…

but don't take too many of these; they will be much more interesting with people or something about 10 feet away to visually anchor the shot.

8. If you're ready to graduate from your phone to a nice camera, you'll see some great benefits. Bigger lenses will allow you to shoot good photos in bad lighting and you can also play around with depth,  blurring the backgrounds.

I mentioned Project Life above. If you haven't heard of this simple, cost-effective system for organizing your photos and memories, I invite you to check out Stampin' Up!'s exclusive line of PL supplies here.

I hope these tips will help you take better vacation photos…have fun on your trips!

Sketch Challenge

Projects/ Scrapbook/ Stamping/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Ever get stuck in a rut with your cardmaking? Using the same colors, the same designs, your same old “standby” stamp sets?

This happens to me sometimes; when it does, I look for a sketch challenge to get my creative juices freely flowing again! Here's one I found at Becky Fleck's PageMaps (http://pagemaps.com/june11cardmaps.htm)

Think of all the scraps from your scrapbooking or stamping you could use up…each card would be different and any sentiment would work!

I hope today's sketch challenge inspired you; I'd love to see your creations!

Does Your Washi Tape Have A Mind of It’s Own???

Scrapbook/ Stamping/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Tuesday Tips

Am I the only one, or does your Washi Tape have a mind of it's own, too? Does the end stick to the roll and tear when you are trying to peel off? Can you even FIND the end????

Here is a great tip I found while surfing around….not sure who was the original inspiration…but THANK YOU, whomever you are!!

WashiTape_Empty Dispenser Tip

Save your clear tape dispenser when all the tape is gone. Instead of throwing into the trash can, take out the center “circle core” and insert a roll of Washi. Great way to recycle AND organize at the same time!

Embossing Folder Tricks

Scrapbook/ Stamping/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hey stampers….since Stampin' Up! has several Embossing Folders in our “Weekly Deals” this week, I thought I'd share some of my favorite “embossing folder tricks” you can use to step up your projects!

WeeklyDealsJan27

  • try using a Stampin' Sponge or Sponge Dauber to put ink on the raised parts. You can rub all over the raised image or just choose a few areas. Experiment and see which you prefer!
  • Use Versamark Ink and an embossing heat tool to put some shimmer on the raised parts; again, you can use this technique all over or just on specific areas.
  • Use a “hobby knife” to cut around parts of your embossed image or to cut out an entire piece to use on a card front.
  • Lastly, try using a sanding block or tool on the embossed piece; if you use Cor'dinations paper, because of the white inner “core”, the results can be quite unique. You can also sand embossed pieces created with regular cardstock or patterned (like Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper).

See all the Embossing folders that are on sale in the Weekly Deals section of my online store.

What are some ways you “step up” your embossed cards? Leave me a comment…I always like to learn from you!!
