It is finally here - camp time has come around again!
Just like last time, we know it will be a relaxing weekend of scrapbooking and socialising.
We have a fun challenge planned, some great prizes and freebies organised and of course Lee's beautiful food!
Looking forward to seeing you there.

Photography tips

We all know that photos are integral to our craft. And one thing that can elevate our pages from good to great are the photographs that we add.
I am constantly trying to take that elusive perfect shot - the one that captures the atmosphere of a place, the mood of the moment or the personalities of the people I am celebrating.
If you are like me and are searching for ways to improve your photos to add some wow factor and extra interest to your pages, this article featured in the Creating Keepsakes September 2010 issue, is a great way to start inspiring you to do just that.
I hope you enjoy!

Class #1. 17th & 24th March 9:00am - 11:00am
I have designed a double-page sketch & have teamed it with 2 interpretations of that sketch to help you create a striking layout. One layout has a 'Good Times' theme which is pretty versatile & the second layout is all about the growing boy. Each layout features 2 large photos & 4 smaller shots. I have used Kaiser Craft's On the Move collection for this month's kit.

Class #2. 17th & 24th March 11:30am - 1:30pm
This layout gives you the chance to use a panoramic or series of photos. This leaves the theme open: you could use multiple landscape photos, a sequence of photos or even before & after shots. We will use stamping to update leftover letters & add a digital journaling card to the page. Also, embellishments for the page can be altered to suit whatever theme you choose.

Class #3. 17th & 24th March 2:00pm - 4:00pm
This class is focusing on using the Cricut for creating & embellishing a double-page layout. It has a large photo & title on one page for dramatic impact. ‘Celebrate’ is the title, which suits a multitude of themes & a sub-title is added to the layout to personalise your layout. Kit choices are pink & green with hearts -or- red, white, blue & stars. Please specify when booking.

Desktop Wallpaper

I love changing my desktop wallpaper. I usually do this once a month and I found this great link:

On a Mac all you have to do is right click on the wallpaper and click on 'set as background'. Not sure if you can do that on a PC, but you can right click on the wallpaper and click on 'save image as'. Then set the wallpaper as your desktop through your control panel.

Ribbon Storage

I don't know about you, but I always wonder if I'm storing my scrapbooking supplies the best way possible. I started to look around at ribbon storage in particular and found that there are so many different storage options, here are some I found:

I use a large glass jar like the above photo, this works well for me as I have lots of 1 metre and under lengths. I have recently started buying ribbon spools and will have to make a storage decision pretty soon!
