It is the last day of September. I do not know about you but this month has flown by. Here at Making Memories we are in planning mode. We are planning for our blog, promotions, events, etc. for 2010. It is a busy but fun time. Sorry I have missed a few days this month for blogging. I promise I will do better. I wanted to post some additional fall layouts for you to enjoy.
Today the temperature in Utah will be 86 degrees. Tomorrow it will be a chilly 56 degrees. Fall is here. I thought it would be appropriate to show you some fall layouts. These layouts were created using Making Memories' Autumn Splendor collection. This collection is easy to use, especially if you want to mix and match.
To create these layouts simply add paper as the background and adhere your embellishments. To top it all off add your photos.
Making Memories Vintage Findings collection must be one of my favorite collections ever. I just love the idea of having some embellishments that reminds me of little treasures. I want to share a bit about the process of this page.
I gave my 12 years old the camera and she took some beautiful
pictures of my husband and I. I just told her to keep on snapping
pictures and we laughed and joked around. At the end of the "photo
shoot" I had 70 pictures and lots to choose from and edit. Next, I used
Photoshop elements and ran some actions on the pictures. An Action is a
one-click-make-your-photo-fabulous button. I searched the web long ago
and came across the coffeeshop blog where you can find free actions for Photoshop elements. I used the
honey retro action for these pictures. Combining the embellishments and
pictures on a page is always fun. I wrote the lyrics from "so close" by
Jon McLaughlin as my journaling. I thought it was very appropriate. : )
How about a little giveaway for a Thursday in return for some feedback? We want to know what Slice design cards are your favorite. What Slice design cards do you want to see in the future and what designs and themes are you interested in?
Let us know. We will pick three people to receive a Slice design card of their choice.
Breast cancer affects people all over the world. October is
National Breast Cancer Awareness month. During this month people recognize this
awful disease by seeking to increase awareness, raise money for research, and
do all that is possible to help women get early detection.
We know that the women and loved ones who suffer from this
disease are courageous, strong, and ultimately become fighters. We want to hear
how you have been affected personally or through a loved one.
Please share your story of courage so we can help inspire
and provide strength for others who may be struggling. Email your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org
