Today I am…

Catching up!

Watcha Gorgeous Fluffs Of Bundle, how are you all doing? It has been a busy old week for me so far, hence the lack of posting. It is not from want of projects to show, but more a lack of time to get them posted here on the blog.

I’ve been working more with the Fiskars Fuse, it was my first demo last weekend and so I’ve been learning all I can about the machine.

I had fun making samples but I’ve got to say the demo was a little quiet, then I was competing with one of the hottest days of the year so far! Mid demo I suddenly had a yearning to make a mini-book so I kept myself busy cutting pages ready to work on at some point. My next demo is the 27th July in Reading if you happen to be about do come and say hello!

I think I’m a little bit behind with my magazine updates, Get Stamping 3 was out last week:

You have SO got to check out the stamps that come with the mag this month – LOVE the camera and the scooter is really cute too! Perfect set for a spot of holiday modular/project life scrapbooking I reckon! I have some cards in this month, I’ve used ICE Resin and Glossy Accents to make some fun embellishments with the stamps. I haven’t seen the magazine yet so can’t tell you what else is in it, looking forward to seeing it though!

By the way what do you think of the Fiskars demo photos above? I have three cameras at the moment, my beloved dSLR (LOVE LOVE LOVE), a handy little digital camera (also quite fond of!) and of course my mobile phone.

I’m not a great fan of taking photos with my mobile phone as they never seem to come out particularly well, but then I didn’t get my mobile phone for the camera as I already have the dSLR and digital camera which are perfect for what I use them for. But it does mean that I sometimes go out and about with three cameras in tow which is a little mad! Anyway I was actually pleased to have the camera on my mobile on Saturday as the battery ran out on my digital – D’oh! So the photo collage above is all taken with the mobile phone camera.

I thought I would have a look at other photos I’ve taken with my mobile phone recently…

I’ve only slightly lightened and put frames on them in Photoshop Elements, but otherwise not processed them too much. Except the photo in the centre of the top row which was played with in the Pixlr-o-matic App. The phone is a Samsung ACE2 in case you are interested. Still don’t think it will replace my other two cameras, which will need surgically removing from my body.

I would love to know what camera or, if you are like me, cameras you use when you are out and about taking photos? Do Tell!

Catch you later PhotoFluffs


EDIT: The Fiskars demos have been delayed ’til later in the year so I won’t be in Reading on the 27th July. Watch this space for the new dates.

    The latest Get Stamping mag is great – those stamps really are super and I love your makes that appear in the mag.

    I have a little Samsung digital camera as it was what fell within my price range at the time (and if I stopped to read the instructions I might get better photos LOL).

    I'm with you on phone cameras Kim, I'd prefer not to have one, and just a basic phone! I use a Fuji FinepixS 24 x superwide camera that does everything I could ask for it, other than be lighter. I swore I'd never buy another camera that didn't have a view finder, as on bright days, the screens most cameras have are useless!

    This camera has both, and it's easy to switch from one to t'other.

    I've got the new magazine and it is great, I love all the inspiration. The stamp set is brilliant with all the bits and pieces. And my first card with it is in the making 🙂
    As for the camera I have a little Pentax compact camera which I am happy with.

    Ooh the magazine sounds fab Kim. Your demo table looks great too. Don't envy having to demo in this heat. Loving your photos, I have Pixlr-o-matic on my phone and Hipstamatic, love having a play! for my DT work though I use a Panasonic Lumix. Hope you have a lovely weekend Kim xx
