Inspiration

In the midst of graduations, summer weddings, and for many the long awaited for, last day of school is… Father’s Day.  For all, June seems to be filling with more and more activities and deadlines.  It definitely makes it harder to squeeze everything in and give everything the attention it deserves.  No doubt Father’s Day can easily get pushed to a back burner but it doesn’t have to be that way.  This year can be different.  This year will be different for some.  This year could be the year you begin to document some photos to back up those stories that you’ve heard a thousand times.  We call those “fish tales” in our house because it seems the details get a little bigger every time we hear the story.

Chances are, you already have some great pages made with your best photos.  If you don’t, there is still time.  Now is definitely the time to take advantage of some quick scrapping with templates or perhaps a ready made brag book.  I did a search for Father and found some amazing kits and collections perfect for scrapping any guy.

The Gallery is filled with awesome inspiration too.

I love this page by foxinsocks  It’s made with Scrap it Simple #9 by Linda Cumberland Designs.

Here is a more vintage style page by patriciabb.  Perfect for documenting the older memories.  This one is made with the Days Gone By Collection by The Urban Fairy and Aimee Harrison Designs.

Need a jumpstart?  Using a template will help speed things along.  You’ll reach your goal much faster and you still have the flexibility to customize your pages.  Visit the Quick & Easy section of the store to find a varitey of tools to help you with your project.

A-Manda Creation has all of her Brag Books on sale for 30% off.

Jilbert has Photo Pockets and Photo Pocket Bundles to that make amazing story boards.

There are also several Quick Page Packs suited perfectly for the man in your life.

Whatever you decide, today should probably be the day.  Most photo and photo book printing companies can still get your pages or books to you in time.  I’ve had great success with Persnickety Prints and Shutterfly (who, by the way is having a 50% off sale).

Be sure to post your pages in the gallery too.  Someone else might really need YOUR creative inspiration to get them started.

I was browsing through the Designer Gallery today and I found this great page, Ocean Drive by Pepette in Lara’s Digi World‘s gallery.  I just finished a slide show for an engagement party.  The groom-to-be has been hunting, fishing, and boating his whole life.  There was a photo similar to this in the stack his mom brought to me.  As we went through each one she gave me a bit of the story.  When we got to the one like this, she said “look!  I’m a big man, driving the boat”.  We both laughed out loud.  These are the moments in time that adorn our lives with laughter and childlike ear-to-ear grins.  Unlike formal photos where there is the stress of making sure everything is “perfect for the picture”, it’s the baseball cap and T-shirt moments that are sheer joy.  Don’t forget to capture these moments.

Ocean Drive

Ocean Drive is a beautiful kit by Lara.  It has a speck of winter, a touch of summer and a splash of spring.  It is on sale right now, for a little while longer for 35% off.

Lara’s Digi World also has this great 10 for $10 Bonus.

For a LImited Time you can get 10 beautiful kits for $10.  It’s one of the best offers in the store right now.

Go take a peek, and while you’re there, be sure to catch up on the forum festivities.

Round Robin is really a Rocking Robin!  Those women are having so much fun!

August 12th Inspiration – one photo with multiple frames.

by Robyn 11 August 2013

Over years of looking around different galleries, one particular technique has always appealed to me.   I love seeing a page where just the one photo is featured under multiple frames.  I’ve created a page as an example of what I mean and I’ve used Studio 4 Design Works’ wonderful new kit MANIFESTED MEMORIES.  What a […]
