3 tips to phone photography

Do you use your phone camera a lot? I certainly do! I thought I´d share 3 tips on taking photos with your phone. Now, I use a iPhone 4s and haven´t used any other, so I can´t say anything about them, but I think users of any other phone can get tips any way.


1. Have your phone with you!

I know that most of us scrapbookers do use our phonecameras all of the time and that is because we have made a habit of doing so. I love having a small enough camera to be able to have it in my back pocket at all times!


2. Focus

My phone focuses well in general, but once in a while I want to be able to create a little depth of field (you know when something in the foreground is in focus and the background is a bit blurry), especially if it is a real close shot. Then, all I do (besides trying to keep real still!) is tap what I want in focus on my screen and then wait until it's set before I tap the shutter.


3. Alternative shutter button

My third tip is that instead of tapping your screen when you want to take a photo, just use the volume button! It creates a little more stability for your shot and essentially giving you a less blurry shot.


Happy snappin'!

Memory keeping | Autumn TN 02

If you´d like to see my first few pages in my Autumn mini, just click here

I am still working away in my Autumn travelers notebook. I have enjoyed to add bits and pieces and stories about some of my favorite things about fall. I will go on in November and then start my annual Christmas mini at the start of December. 

Quotes are one of my favorite things to include in my memory keeping projects, so it is no suprise that I have quite a few in here. 

I will use most of the remaining pages for my 30 day gratitude project that I do every year with the grand finale of Thankgiving at the end of the month. 
I have a question, if you are one who makes traveler notebooks, how do you store them when they are done?

Memory keeping | December mini 2016 - 6 past favorites

Three years ago, when my fiancé and me celebrated our first December together, I started a December minibook. It´s a 6x8 binder from Simple Stories with pocket pages. I decided that I´ll have three years worth of December memories in this mini. So this year marks the last one being documented in this book. I am not doing anything daily (as in the December Daily project that Ali Edwards do) and since I do Project Life every week this album is all about our December traditions and sometimes I do have double recordings, but for me it is all ok. What I have felt special about working in my December mini is that I go all in with glitter, cheesy wordings etc. It´s fun! I fitted 3 years of Decembers in one album and this year I am getting a new album, but will still do the same thing.

Today I thought I´d share a few favorite pages and elements from the past 3 years before I start the new album.

1. I really like that I have included the things I have been inspired by every year. I take a screen…

Kellie Stamps CT 2016 | November

I'm so happy about the re-release of two alpha sets this month from Kellie Stamps! Slim Jim is a set I use all the time for all kinds of projects. 

Here is a new page I did for the re-release.

I've been so inspired by fellow team member Diane and her awesome traveller notebooks lately. She often creates backgrounds using her alpha stamps, so I lifted her and made this background for my layout. I very rarely use any other color than black to stamp with, but after using this blue/teal Ink I may have to start. 

Since my love is worse in his MS his wheelchair is a must. We are that couple that hold hands a lot and that is something I miss. But when the road is a tiny bit downhill we totally hold & roll :)
