Oops. This is what happens when you leave a candle in your garage … in the summer, in Arizona. It’s pretty though, isn’t it? The cream-colored candle didn’t melt because the plastic wrap is still on. Good to know that packaging really does work.
I’ve been doing more layouts with my June KOTM (kit of the month). This is my current one in progress … a summer theme. It’s so cute to display these pages on the clipboard that the kit includes.
These kits will no longer be available after Saturday, so this is your last chance to order. At midnight on Saturday night, the new July kit will be available (also super cute). So if you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to click here and see all that it has. Such a great price for everything you get.
In response to a few of your questions …
- My website really will be a functioning place with lots of content. It will likely be up & running by August.
- Jody asked what I wrote inside the bookplate on one of my CKU Sketches class layouts. Here you go, Jody. On that note, I just have to say how much I love using bookplates. Even if you just handwrite a little something, they look great.
- Lindsey asked about my process when it comes to digital pictures & using sketches, etc. Sometimes I start with a sketch and find pictures that work well with that design and sometimes (most of the time) I have pictures and THEN find a sketch that works well for the number of pictures I want to use. I’ll be showing you my whole process of putting a layout together – start to finish – soon. Stay tuned.
- Krista asked about printing in “normal” sizes. Yes, all of my printing is done in standard sizes (4″ x 6″, 5″ x 7″, 8″ x 10″, etc.). The key to getting smaller prints is to create standard-sized CANVASES in your photo editing software (like Photoshop). Crop your images to whatever size you need, like 3″ x 4″ and then drag & drop that smaller image onto the 4″ x 6″ canvas. You can put multiple images on one canvas … whatever you can fit on there. Your prints will still be 4″ x 6″ and then you would just cut the images. This is much easier to explain “in person”. I hope it makes at least a little bit of sense.
