A little this and that....

I do have a creation to share with you today, but it'll be later for the Club Anya blog hop!! Hope to see you back here then!
Just a few things:
See THIS card?? How sweet of Sparkle to send it to me to make me smile since the loss of Heidi. Thank you so much, Sparks!

Second, a friend asked how I catalog my stamps. Here's my "stamp catalog" so to speak. I stamp every image in there when I get it and then I can flip through the pages to see what I have. This was one of the best things I ever did!


How do I photograph my cards?? Ugh...by stomping and yelling and pulling my hair out...but seriously, I have a Nikon D50 camera and I can bounce the flash so I use my makeshift photo box and then take a zillion photos hoping one is decent. I use adobe photoshop elements to edit my photos. I hope to remember soon to buy an Ott lite to help with the color balance a bit as I hate always altering it in the editing.


That's it for now...come back soon for the Club Anya hop!!

Thanks for sharing both those great ideas! I will definitely be making the photo box.

Cool idea for your stamps!!! What do you mean when you say you "bounce the flash" when taking a photo? An OTT light will definitely make your photography job a little easier. :)

You are so much more organized than I am Danni! :)

What a good idea, hmm, New Year's Resolution?

What a fantastic idea with your catalogue! I think I should look into doing something like that. I've also been debating making one of those boxes. I know a few ppl use them and what a difference in the photo's. I'm always looking for the 'perfect' spot to photograph my cards. This would allow more time to create! Thanks for sharing, Danni!

Thank you Danni!! Seeing the catalog it makes more sense now...want to come stamp mine for me?? LOL!!

Great idea! I tink I'm going to bring my clear and unmounted stamps to Utah with me to do some organizing! Thanks for the tip!!!

Blessings,
Christine

Great Idea to keep track of your stamps..How long did it originally take you to get started..I cant even imagine ...As for your light box check out my blog I took pics of the light box I just bought a bit ago ..it was 100.00 but it makes or breaks a picture for sure. Considering what I pay for my ink. copics , paper and stamps nesties..etc...it is worth it ..!!I hope my hubby doesn't read this lol..

LOVE the photo box idea!!

Want to come create a stamp catalog for me? The thought of doing it with all on hand just makes me cringe- but I can certainly see the value!
