So, this week-end I want to a TEAM Seminar in Wichita. It was awesome! If you've never heard Kirk & Cassie Birtles speak, you are so missing out on some great leadership training!

My mom's card party is this week-end and I'm coming up short on creativity! I've got a bookmark, 2 cards, a couple of envelope cards & something with Bella! lol I used my nestabilities to cut out some scalloped ovals, so I have to use them! I'm going to take pictures and see if anyone has any quick fixes to make these things look a little better! I'm open to any suggestions, please help me!

Thanks, again, Kristine for putting word of my blog out there! I hope that in some way I can inspire someone to get going and follow their dreams!
This one is for a contest that I opted not to enter becuase it didn't turn out like what I had in mind.
Popsicle card seems to be missing something. Any suggestions for something simple to help it out?
The chick has fuzzies! Love it!

These are my mom's favorite, so we're making 2 at her party!
Have a blessed night!

These are really neat Helen! Love those crimped envelope cards--I had such a blast making those. Never made a popsicle card before--that looks so yummy ☺ Great job!!

As for taking photos, I use 2 pieces of white 12x12 cardstock (or those white cardboard pieces that come in paper packs) and set one on a shelf and stand the other one up so it makes a little "photo studio". Then I stand my card/project up to take the picture. It's helps with lighting too. Then in my photo software, I crop the photo and click automatic adjust and like magic, it brigtens and fixes the colors. Then I just add my watermark on top of the photo somewhere.

If you don't have a photo software program, you can download free ones like Paint.Net
You can also create a watermark using that program. Let me know if you'd like some help, or if you'd like me to make you a watermark! ☺ Happy to help.

You are so awesome! I was wondering how I was going to get better pictures! I didn't even think about using cardstock to make my photo booth. I'm going to make one this week-end. I made some changes to some of the cards, little additions, change the ribbon and I'm more pleased with the results. I'll take pictures on Saturday and post them. A watermark...that would be so cool! I didn't think about that either! Would you make me a watermark? Thank you so much! I'm so excited! Have a wonderful week-end!
