| A few projects |

Friday, July 20, 2012

I've had a few of these projects already done. Some were just a few that I had left from being on CP's design team. I used Rahel Menig's stamp set for this travel booklet and it was quick and fun project using a vellum envelope. I wanted to give my best friend a travel incentive so that we can take a trip for her upcoming birthday, I think it worked!

I finally used some of my Amy Tan sketchbook products. I think I only have the 6x6 pad but I'm a terrible hoarder. I just can't seem to cut up papers but now that I have the freedom to get back to just scrapping without deadlines, I can jump back into my piled up Jenni Bowlin kits and other products I've picked up. I'm still trying to decide on a way to get rid of products and clean my space for new ones. Any suggestions would be great.
Have a great weekend and be safe. Definitely praying for those in Colorado.

I finally ordered this new lens last night and I'm really excited about it. I've debated for a while now about getting it but when I read the reviews, I knew I couldn't pass it up . It was also part of the recommendations for one of the online photography workshops that I plan to take and I knew I couldn't pass on it. It's the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens.  I can't wait to play and work on taking better photos. I'm hoping to really learn all that I can about photography.

My wish list for camera "gear" is extensive but its an investment that I'm excited about.

On the list is the Canon Speedlight Flash 430EX or the 580EX

I definitely need a wide angle lens with the Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Wide Angle Lens

My next purchase maybe the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

I'm also wish listing for the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

On my far list of dreams, once I master my little camera and feel that I want to move forward professionally is the Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Definitely looking forward to playing and learning.

First of all, I am definitely going to miss being part of the Crate Paper design team. It was truly an awesome experience and CP will forever be a special part of my life. They have selected some really AWESOME ladies for the new term and I wish to congratulate them all!  With that being said, I'll start first with CP for my list of favs! 

On Trend : the colors, glasses and butterflies are a hit for me

Sleigh Ride: The colors

Dear Lizzy: Frith & Frolic: The fox...to die for =)

Basic Grey: Serende

These are just a few collections so far that I'm loving. I'm sure I'll be back with more this week especially some of the things I love from Studio Calico.
