Funny how my card making style has changed since I moved to White Rock. Previously, I preferred making cards with pretty paper and embellishments. I find it relaxing and more of a “break away” from my computer work. However, it is so beautiful in White Rock that I just cannot resist sharing the lovely scenery. I might even be bragging.
I prefer printing my own photos but too often seem to run out of ink at the worst times. I never like to pre-buy ink in-case it dries out. Plus btw – I only ever buy brand name quality ink and the very best photo paper I can get. I once tried one of those ink refill places and was not happy at all. Luckily, Walmart has just reduced the price on their photos to 15 cents each. I can upload them, and by the time I drive over to get them they are already processed. Just make sure you have your camera set to the highest quality possible, then upload them in their original size. If I resize a photo, (for example to blog with they need to be compressed), the way I keep them straight is to give the resized photos a name while untouched photos don’t get a name but are kept in specific folders. Organizing and naming your photos in a way that you can find them is extremely important.
That beautiful silver cardstock with matching envelopes is from the PaperZone which has closed down. So, now I am in search of a quality paper source. Any suggestions?
I added the quotes on the cards with PhotoShop. I always choose quotes with meaning to me and with the person I am making the card for in mind. A card always comes together better for me when I am thinking about a specific person. When I make a custom card I rarely duplicate it.
