Hi all! Janelle here today on the blog with you. This month the Peers are sharing our favorite finished projects. I have loved seeing what the other Peers have created and I hope you have taken a look to see what they have done as well! Hopefully we all have made projects that we love and are proud of. And some of us have made projects that we look at now and just cringe silently about to ourselves, haha.
This month’s challenge is brought to you by Kathy: July is the month that those of us who live in the United States celebrate Independence Day. Everywhere you look you see red, white and blue, the colors of our flag. So for this month’s challenge I thought it would be fun to use flag colors on our layouts. So the challenge is:
One of my favorite things to do is to discover new photography apps to play with. Photography apps save us time and many times they give our pictures a different look or more artistic look that otherwise would take hours or a lot of steps to accomplish in Photoshop.
I want to have time to create more and also to exercise my creative brain thinking how can I incorporate these pictures in my layouts because they are created without a particular layout or kit in mind so it’s fun later to see which effect will fit in what I want to work with. It saves me time that way.
My latest obsession is a app called: Fragments. It is an app for both Android and iPhone that creates prismatic effects with your photos.
I have a confession to make — I don’t have any finished projects. I scrap and I scrap and I scrap, but I don’t have any finished projects to speak of. I have a list of albums I would like to create and/or complete — Family Reunion, Trip to Disney, Project Life 2014 and 2015 — but sadly none of them are actually completed and printed. What I do have, however, are a lot of individual printed layouts that are in top-loading albums. I have one album for each of my three kids and one “family” album. However, I probably have more completed layouts on my computer than I do in the actual albums.
Several of us here at Scrapaneers are going to share with you this month some of our favorite projects. I always have several scrapping projects going on at any given time. There’s Project Life, my “regular” scrapbooking pages and then special projects (i.e., vacation albums and December Daily). I’ve been putting some thought into what I would describe as my “favorite project.” I love all my projects for different reasons. They’re all so different. But I’m going to have to say that my favorite projects are my vacation albums.
Happy Fourth of July to those of you in the States! Didn’t get any photographs of fireworks this year? Never fear, because I have a sweet tutorial to show you how to make your own fireworks in Photoshop. Ready to get started? Come on in and join me for some pyrotechnic fun . . .
Hi everyone. Happy summer! Can you believe it’s the end of June already? Next week we’ll be celebrating the 4th of July here in the US. As it always does, summer is flying by. Today is the last Monday of the month and that means it’s time for us here at Scrapaneers to share with you our “pick of the month.” I was trying to think about what I wanted to share with you as my pick this month. Then it came to me. Timehop. Have you heard of it? It’s an app I downloaded on my phone ages ago and it’s something I look at pretty much without fail every single day. I love it.
Hi all! Janelle here today with a few photography tips for getting great photos of fireworks. Here in the good ole’ USA we are getting ready to celebrate our Independence Day. One of my favorite things about celebrating our independence are our amazing fireworks shows. I have tried many times in the past to take pictures of fireworks, but they never turn out the way I’d like them to. I am getting more confident and I am finally starting to branch out from using the auto mode on my DSLR, so I decided to do some research to find good tips for photographing fireworks on manual this holiday!
Have you ever wondered what to do with those “oh so awesome” word art strips and blocks that come in many digital art kits these days? Well, wonder no more. I’m excited to share with you some of my favorite uses for those handy elements. Ready to get started? Then come on in and join me . . .
Warning! Warning! Danger, Will Robinson! Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I’m using this warning so you can’t blame me for enabling your buying and adding to your digital scrapbooking stash. But there are so many awesome summery kits out there right now that I just had to share with you my “must buy” summer kit list. Proceed at your own caution.
Hi fellow Scrapaneers! I’m excited to share with you my favorite ways to use Layer Masks in digital scrapbooking. Hands-down Layer Masks are my favorite tool to use in Photoshop (or PSE9+). I’d be hard pressed to find a layout that I did not use a layer mask on in some fashion.
