Life happenings at Jacs place

This little Scrapnut is at it again.
More pages to share from yesterday. Had a quiet day at home and seeing as dh went out fishing late in the afternoon and Asher wasn't feeling the best either we missed out on the fireworks. Oh well next year.
The first page is the one I did for the desginer dairies 10 + photo challenge and for a challenge over in the bickie tin to make your own chipboard embellies. So love it when I can double up on my challenges.LOL I made my own letters and then covered them in some yummy Piggy tales paper that I got with my Jan kit from Em. So love the papers and even though they are in blues and greens, not the usual girly colours I use, I am having fun working with them. I enjoyed doing this one and I made sure I didn't lose any photos like I did when doing my Waiting page, which was my first attempt at the 10 photo challenge till I lost one. LOL. The journaling reads May you always enjoy yourself as you explore the beautiful place we call home. The photos were taken up at kings park a few months back where we went for a friends birthday party and Asher had a ball in the playground there.
My second page is for the 123 cyber crop and while puting it together I had to keep telling myself no double upping on this one. We had to use White cardstock, 1 rubon, 2 photos,3 flowers and scollops on our page. When Charm was typing up the challenge she add a J to it by mistake and I joking said thta I was going to add it into the page somewhere and I did.LOL. I used the piggy tales papers again for this one. I am so loving the idea of getting kits at the moment as some of the guess work of matching papers and stuff is done for you.
Ok guys I think I need some tips on getting good pics of my pages. I take them out side to do it and turn of the flash so I don't need to worry about flash glare on my photos but most times I never seem to get good clear shots. My Puppy eyes page is actually on white card but it looks pale blue here and on my explore page the lettering in the title is not very clear a little fuzzy looking. It may have something to do with the resizing on the explore page but who knows with the Puppy eyes page.
Anyway got to go as I've got another lazy day at home ahead of me and I am planning on doing some more scrapping while I can.
Till next time happy scrapping.

Hi Julie, both these layouts are terrific!!
I would just suggest trying lots of different places around your outside area or even inside that has some really good indirect sunlight. I find my bedroom is the best in the mornings.

Beautiful pages Julie, the scrolls on the 2nd layout is beautiful.

I take a photo in indirect sunlight (I place in on the floor in front of the window) then when i am cropping it, I do auto enhance and it correct the colour.

HTH.

Hiya Julie,
Love your latest layouts - they looks great! (love that piggy tales paper too)

I agree with the other girls, just experiment with photographing your layouts in different areas of your home and at different times of the day until you find what works best!

Fantastic work with the layouts Julie.
If your layouts are looking too blue then usually the spot you took the pic was too shady - try sourcing out a bit of a brighter place.
Do you have a photo program that allows you to play with the coloru adjustments - sometimes this happens to me and i just raise the colour to add a little more yellow to the layout.

Good luck with it

Hi Julie,
I scan my pages. My scanner isn't big enough so I scan each page as 2 files then join them together. It takes a bit longer than a photo but I never seemed to be able to get a good pic with a camera (hard to believe I'm a qualified photographer!) and this way, my pages come out alot clearer.

Gorgeous pages Julie.
As for kits I've just subscribed to the Boxx of scraps, which will be sent out monthly...just to see if I enjoy getting a parcel in the mail once a month, full of scrap goodies...no guessing on that answer PMSLOL :P You have done a fabulous job on the LO including 10 photo's.
As for taking photo's of your LO's...everyone else has pretty much covered it I think.
Good luck...take care
Tammy

HI Julie, once Again glorious LO's!!

I use a combo of what all the ladies have said with their tips for photo taking, Ive found that in the bathroom with dappled afternoon light without flash and auto correct in image program works a treat lol.
