iTunes Inspiration Challenge

A new challenge for the month of September :) I can spend hours looking round the iTunes store… the movies, the music, the videos… It gets expensive looking for new inspiration for this challenge LOL I always buy something for myself!

This movie poster is our starting point this month – its a great design.

Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 22.23.30

Its very clever – not just a grid but a big picture split up, and perhaps not how you’d logically split it. I like it :)

Katie has got a handy little download of goodies for you here, that might just help rustle up a page!

The creative team are used to my last minute pleas of ‘can anyone make me a sample page?!’ and as always, came up with brilliant layouts to share.

First up the wonderful Wendy – aka Wendymck- created this page of her gorgeous boy, (and I love that yellow!)

Next up, Sara – aka sarahorton- made a brilliant sports photo page… I am exhausted and feeling for him in those photos! Good running!

And hey no surprise theres ponies and little girls on my page. (We do occasionally do other things than looking after ponies but…. okay no, we don’t, ponies take up all my time now! LOL)

I love my page, if I am allowed to be so modest ;) I have to say, the push to scrap outside my comfort zone for a challenge, usually produces some of my favourite pages.

Have a go, and see what you come up with. There are no hard and fast rules. Just be inspired by our starting point and see where it takes you.  My only rule is please upload it to our special iTunes Gallery, and take the time to comment and praise other pages there too :)

Photography Scrapbook Challenge: Slow Shutter Speed

I really enjoy playing with my camera! The different results that come from knowing how the different settings work, can be stunning! The shutter speed is one of the three settings that work together to make your image! What is shutter speed exactly? Shutter speed is the amount of time that the camera’s shutter remains open while taking a photograph. With the shutter remaining open, more light enters the camera and the camera records movement.

This months challenge is to capture a photo (or more) with your camera set to a SLOW SHUTTER SPEED! The tricky part is having a steady hand to prevent camera shake. To record movement in a photo, it is best to use a tripod or set your camera down on a steady and reliable surface. Set your timer (after you’ve adjusted your settings accordingly) and press the shutter button.

Last weekend we went up the canyon where I know where a little water fall is. With my shutter set to 0.8 seconds (f/22 ISO 100) I was able to capture the water flowing over the rocks, rather dreamy looking! And this was just a mini waterfall a few feet tall in the fall. Imagine a tall waterfall in the spring!

Sarah set out with a fun and creative take on the challenge! To achieve a motion blur for moving objects, a slow shutter speed and panning the camera is required. It can be tricky, but has a wonderful effect. Well done Sarah!092214 photochallenge-SarahSupplies Used: Photography Challenge Freebie 092214, LakeLand Scrapbooking Collection, Hung Up Photo Frames No 9, Arctic Whites Paper Pack No 3, Cathy Zielske’s Layered Template No 133

Amy added several fun photos to her page. She attempted a new technique! Panning and Zooming with a slow shutter speed. Just look at the fun results!092214 photochallenge-AmySupplies Used: Cathy Zielske: Life Basics No 3; Katie Pertiet: Dirty Linens Autumn Paper Pack, Curated Studio Mix No 15, Plastic Alphabet: Green No 1, Crowning Affair: Vibrant Solids, Notebook Paper Pack No 5, Classic Cardstock: Little Hearts, Hey There Journalers, Chalkboard Cameras No 1, Almost There Element Pack; Ali Edwards: Awesome Time Brushes and Stamps, Essential Words No 1; Maplebrook Studios: Just Journalers No 1; Studio Double-D: Readymade Journalers: Hey There

For some of us this may be something new. Others may need to brush up on this skill. A few may be pros! In any case, pull out your camera and have fun with SLOW SHUTTER SPEEDS! Katie has generously provided a freebie pack for this challenge. Please post your pages in the Photography Scrapbook Challenge Gallery. If your page qualifies for the Rewards Program, then don’t forget to post a link to your page in the September Challenge Participation Thread for proper credit! Happy recording!

Join Us for a Week-at-a-Glance

Mark your Calendar!

KPertiet_WeeklyJournalersNo2-Dates

We are going to be scrapping the details of our days the week of September 28 thru October 4th. What does that mean exactly? Take a look at your days. Are there things you usually do at specific times every day? What’s your weekly grocery bill? What do you watch on TV? What are you cooking? Where are you going?

It’s like project 365 only in more detail. Why the detail? Wouldn’t you like to know what your grandmother or great grandmother’s days were like? What did she do with her time? Was she working? What did she cook? Where did she grocery shop? It’s little details but they give a priceless glance into your life. And that’s why we scrapbook, right? To preserve the memories. To document for future generations. To tell our story.

KPertiet_WeekataGlance-Products1

We have an assortment of Week-at-a-Glance products to make the undertaking a breeze! It includes pocket-style scrapbook templates in both 12×12 and letter-sized 8-1/2×11 formats as well as an assortment of stamps to assist in the documenting!

KPertiet_WeekataGlanceNo1PREV

And if your style is more scrappy, we’ve got that covered too! The Week-at-a-Glance Layered Templates No.1 include a timeline for listing out activitities, vintage photoframe clusters, stitched grids and decorative frames. All easily recolored.

Some of us will be gathering details that week and scrapping the pages the following week. Some of us will be scrapping each day as they wrap. Either way works!

Mark your calendar, grab the products and join us to Document the Details!

Saturday Scraplift Scrapbook Challenge: Sprinkles on the side

Hiya, Chrissy here. I loved the design of Rache77’s page as soon as I saw the thumbnail in the gallery. The colours worked so well with the photo. When I clicked on the page, I saw how Rachel’s great choice of elements added interest, I love the little flowers and jigsaw pieces scattered across the paint.

SSL Rache-color-blog

Three of our creative members were inspired by this great page. I adore Pam’s take on the challenge. The pink spotty paper picks up the colours in the photo, which is itself so sweet!

Studio DD Layerworks Template

Sharon flipped the design to match her photo. I love the addition of the staples, and the balloons are so, so creative! Love it!

Sharon-SSL-Rache-blog

Wendy created this lovely page. Love the journalling beside the photo, and the silver glitter with these colours makes the whole page feel so fresh and vibrant!
