Saturday School: Option to Edit & Organize - Photo Software

Hi Everyone!  It's Jenn (jk703) here to share some information with you today for saturday School!  We are going to go over some software options that are available for photo editing and organization!

I know... you are looking at your scrapbooking stash and wondering if there is something out there to help you find things, sort images, and edit images, making it all pretty and tidy, right?! I bet you even started digital scrapbooking, and thought "This is going to be so much more organized than paper scrapping!"  Right!?!  HA!  Now, you've probably been scrapping for a bit, have a gigantic un-countable amount of un-edited photos and then on top of that an amazing stash of digi supplies!

What to do? What to do?  Well.... I'm going to share some software that either is for photo organization, photo editing or has the capabilities included. Depending on your type of computer, budget and what options you are looking for - there is something for everyone!

 Picasa is by Google.  It is a free download that will allow you a simple way to organize your photos.  This option also allows for simple photo editing, such as lighting and color issues. They offer batch uploading, and also allows you to see the photo properties.  You can see what settings you had on the camera when you took a certain photo. They support tagging, search filters, and color searches.


Adobe Photoshop Elements is not just for creating, but can be used for the organization of your photos and supplies. This is available on all Windows versions of PSE, and then only on
PSE 9 for Mac versions. The organizer lets you organize your photos with keyword tags, then search and share them.  Quick fix allows you to crop, fix red eye, and sharpen  - but there is much more.  Cost can be from $50 to $100.
Adobe Bridge comes with the certain Adobe programs or Creative Suites.  It offers a folder based system of organization.  This software would streamline your photo editing, creative workflow, and actually using your photos because it works directly with Photoshop.  Allows sorting, filters, batching, color labels, star ratings, and some drag and drop features.  Cost:  Software comes with certain Adobe software, so the price can vary. 
Acdsee is an easy to use photo organizer, editor, and sharing machine.  Browse, organize, and manage all your photos and supplies in one location.  Create your own categories, keywords, key phrases, and much more.  There are also editing tools included, such as exposure correction, red eye fix, and it also includes some creative effects. Cost:  $70 - $170.00 depending on the version. 


Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is more of a photo editing software than an organizer.  It isn't a file browser like Adobe Bridge, but more of an image management system with heavy duty photo editing. The organization part of Lightroom reminds me of the Photoshop Elements Organizer.  You can use keywords, and locate things by color, or type.  Cost:  $250-$300. 

iPhoto is a software that is included in iLife, on Apple computers. This just happens to be how I ended up organizing.  The software allows for events, merging, separation as well as keywords, smart albums and search functions.  You can create separate photo libraries, such as one for photos and one for digital scrap supplies.  This software has really basic photo editing options.  Cost:  $49 - $79, to purchase iLife software.

Have a great Saturday everyone!
Jenn (jk703/TheTypativeScrapper)

Mushroom Cubed Steakes

Good morning everyone, and Happy Spring!! I know if your weather is anything like my Ohio weather then today will be nice and warm and the rest of the week it's going to be cool and rain, and probably that S word. I'm just ready for sunshine!! Anyway, today I bring you a recipe that I kind of created myself. Here is what you will need.



Couple cans of Cream of Mushroom soup
4-6 Cubed Steaks
Salt & Pepper

Salt and pepper both sides of the steaks, add to your slow cooker, add mushroom soup to the steaks, add some water, just enough to cover the steaks. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours. I always serve with mashed potatoes and veggies. And I use the mushroom soup as gravy. The steaks come out nice and tender. Here is my hubby's plate from the other night, I say he really likes it..lol

I hope you all enjoy this yummy recipe, and if you try it be sure to stop back here and let us know. Have a happy Monday all!

Scissors Sunday: Faux Stitching

Happy Scissors Sunday everyone!  Jackie here with a little tidbit about how to get that stitched look to your hybrid projects without ever having to lift a needle or thread.  I use it on occasion and I like the way it looks.

I created this card using Jennifer's "My Birthday Boy" kit which is available at 9th and Bloom.  For the lighter tan colored strip, I used Jennifer's "My Best Friend" kit.  After I printed off the papers and cut them out, I added some white stitching with a white craft marker.  You can use any color marker you'd like, of course!  I did it completely free hand, but you could use a ruler to keep your lines straight if you want.


A closer view (as you can see they aren't perfect, but I feel it gives a little bit more personality to the card!):

Saturday School - Printing Layouts

Happy Saturday everyone! Terra here with another Saturday School topic for you. Now that I have created quite a few layouts I have started to research my options for printing. Once you decide the size you want to print (often 12"x12" or 8"x8"), there are generally two options - printing professionally bound photo books or printing single pages and adding them to an album.


Photo books are great for a commemorating a special event or if you are a chronological scrapbooker. I know I would love to create a wedding photo book and a book to celebrate my baby's first year, just to name a few! But for the most part, I am not a chronological scrapbooker so photo books intimidate me and I have been looking for other solutions.

I really like the idea of creating albums similar to the albums that traditional scrapbookers create. They look very durable as printed pages are protected by page protectors and pages can be reorganized whenever necessary. There are a variety of albums on the market with different covers and binding options to suit anyone's needs. There are traditional D-ring binder albums that are simple to use if you add/remove pages frequently. Expandable post-bound albums can be more time consuming to add/remove pages because you have to take the album completely apart to reorganize pages. I have heard that you can make this process easier by replacing the metal posts with a product called snaploads.
Classic 12x12 D-ring binder from We R Memory Keepers

As for vendors, I have heard a lot of good things about Persnickety Prints. I honestly can't remember hearing anything negative about their quality or service. They offer single prints, photo books, calendars and more.They currently have a deal on Facebook for 25% off of 12x12 prints. But hurry, the deal is only available to the first 300 customers.

Of course you may remember that Jennifer did a review on Lulu photo books a little while ago. If you missed it, you can check out her review here. Jennifer was very impressed with her photo book and gave them a great review.


Page from Jennifer's Lulu Photo Book

Shutterfly is another great option for either photo books or prints and if you take the time to look for deals you can often find a coupon on the web for a low priced photo book.

I hope that you have enjoyed this Saturday School post. Let me know what you thought of it in the comments. Do you print photo books or single pages? Have you used other vendors for printing your layouts?

First Look & Win It Now!

Jennifer and a mystery collab partner have two fantastic kits coming to her store tomorrow! If I actually had a clue what awesomeness Jennifer had up her sleeve or who she is collabing with I could tell you all about it. Yet, Jennifer is really sneaky and only a select few know who she's working with and what they're up to. Evil isn't it? I can say however is that it has one awesome girl cupcake and the kits have a birthday boy/girl theme. Cool, huh?

Would you like to win one of these kits before they ever hit the store? Simply leave a comment here telling me something about a birthday and I'll enter you into a drawing to win these kits!

**Post interrupted by Jennifer to show you a little peek. Shhhh...our CTs haven't even seen this yet!**

Tidbit Tuesday - Candles

Hey Scrappers, Lori here with your Tidbit Tuesday. I don't know about you, but I LOVE candles! This past weekend I went to the Yankee Candle store. If you have one of these near you, you HAVE to check it out, and if you don't, you can always shop online! They have what seems like a million different scents, and well honestly they do them so well. I personally hate candles with "fake" scents (apple, strawberry, rose) most candle companies just don't do them justice. But when you smell a Yankee candle it actually smells like the item. My husband bought a Macintosh Apple car freshener. It really smells like apple. I have been an avid shopper at Yankee Candle for years, but this time when we went, the cashier asked me if I had signed up for their email coupons. I hadn't.. So she gave me a little card, to sign up. I went to www.yankeecandle.com/coupons. Signed up for their email coupons, and I instantly got a coupon for $10.00 off my next $25.00 purchase. What an awesome deal!

Scissors Sunday: Card Inspiration

Hi all, Sarah here. I know I talked about PageMaps CardMaps sketches a couple of months ago but I wanted to mention it again because there is a new set of sketches available for March (not to mention the announcement of a release of a CardMaps book..sooo exciting). I totally love using these sketches for my hybrid inspiration and this month's sketches were no different. Here's a card I made using Jennifer's This Woman's Work and one of the March CardMaps sketches.


This card is a little more complicated and took a little more time than I would normally spend on a card but I think it was totally worth it. I love the way the heart border looks and the stacked flowers are so fun. the only thing I would change about this card is that I wish I had a little bling to put in the middle of the flower but that can easily be added before I'm ready to give the card away.

I find sketches to be a wonderful way to get a little hybrid inspiration going. I'm so glad there are so many great resources available and I'm happy I was able to share one of my favorites with you today.

Alpha Outline: How To

Hi Everyone!  Hope you are having a great Saturday!  It's Jenn (jk703) here to share a little tutorial to add a little something to all those fonts you use on your layouts!  I'm sure many of you are fontaholics just like me!

Many times on a layout, I will use an alpha for a main word in my title, and then use a font the other words that are in the title.  BUT, there are also times when I just use fonts for my whole title.  Outlining the font gives it a little oomph and makes it stand out a little.  It can look like a sticker, or just give the font an different look.

For my example, I am using He's My Brother kit, and the font is called Smiley Monster, a free scrapbooking font by Kevin and Amanda.  An awesome color palette, and lots of fun embellishments!


Ok... let's get started!  You should have a layout open in PS or PSE.

Using the Type Tool, choose your font, and type in your title or the words that you will be outlining.

Double check the font, spelling, and placement to make sure it is how you want it to look.

Next, you will right click on the Type Layer in the Layers Palette.  Choose Rasterize layer or Simplify Layer, depending on your program.



In the File Menu, click on Edit > Stroke, and the Stroke menu will pop up.

I usually use anywhere between 2 and 8 pixels.  If you want a larger stroke outline, you can always adjust the distance between letters to allow for more space. 


Another way to change it up is to play with the stroke color, with different colors used to match my layout. In the Stroke menu, the Color box is clickable, and the Select Color Menu will pop up so you can choose any color you want.


Remember, you can play with all the settings here, to see what pops up.  If you don't like what you did, click to undo!  I first tried a brown outline as seen here.

Next, I tried teal, and last I tried White.  White on white is nice, just add a shadow to really show off the edges as if it was a sticker.




There you have it... a nice outline to my title with a font!  It looks like a sticker with the edge, and then the added shadow gives it some depth!  Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!  Thanks for visiting!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Jenn (aka jk703 or The Typative Scrapper)

Tidbit Tuesday - Recipe for Key Lime Pie

I'm starting to plan my menu for St. Patrick's Day next week and was trying to think of a green dessert. I remembered seeing a Key Lime Pie recipe on Oprah a couple years ago so I decided to look it up and was happy to find the recipe on her website. So in case you are starting to think of what to eat on St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would share the recipe for Mar-a-Lago Key Lime Pie with you today.

Mar-a-Lago Key Lime Pie

Servings: Serves 8

Ingredients
  • 3/4 pound graham crackers
  • 4 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 sticks melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 can (14 ounces) condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup fresh Key lime juice
  • 1 lime , grated zest
  • 1 cup heavy or whipping cream , chilled
  • 2 Tbsp. confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

To make graham cracker crust: Preheat the oven to 325°.

Break up the graham crackers, place in a food processor and process to crumbs. Add the melted butter, sugar and salt and pulse until combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan, forming an even layer on the bottom, sides and edge. Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the crust to cool.

To make filling: While the crust is resting, in an electric mixer with the wire whisk attachment, whip the egg yolks and lime zest at high speed until fluffy, or 5 to 6 minutes. Gradually add the condensed milk and continue to whip until thick, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Lower the mixer speed and slowly add the lime juice until incorporated.

Pour the mixture into the crust and bake for 15 minutes, or until the filling has just set. Cool on a wire rack, and then refrigerate for 20 minutes.

To make topping: Whip the cream, confectioners' sugar and vanilla until nearly stiff. Evenly spread the whipped cream on top of the pie, and place in the freezer for 20 minutes prior to serving.

Spring Cleaning and More

Recently, with the warmer weather, I've been really dying to reorganize, redecorate, and just refresh my home. It's not quite warm enough for planting flowers and my garden, so I'm really focusing on inside my house. For a while now, we've been thinking of redoing our entire TV/entertainment center thingie, and I've been spending ages checking out new LCD TV Stands. It's so much fun to browse through this shop and check out new ideas for sprucing up my living room! If you're doing some refreshing at home, tell me about it! And if you have any cool ideas for TV/entertainment areas, let me know!

    Hybrid Highlight~

    Angie here bringing you a little hybrid goodness this week! I was trying to think of what I could do and decided on making a cute little bookmark. Since I retired, I have gone back to reading more, but I have been using a business card as my bookmark. So I decided to use Jennifer's Memory Keeper kit because I loved the colors and figured it would be perfect for a bookmark. I made it 2x6 inches and it turned out to be the perfect size. So if you are looking for a little teacher gift gift or jut something to say "hi" this is a great way to do it!
