    Step by Step with KimmyS

    Good morning everyone! I am so excited to be part of  Kristy’s fabulous birthday blog party. Wish we could have one every month! Today, I would like to share a little step by step with you on how to create a layered monochromatic card. They are fun to do but can have you scratching your head sometimes…especially when you try to decide if the paper you have chosen fits with your monochromatic scheme. You know, I never beat myself up too much about it – I stick with the basic of my chosen colour but if I want to add something that has a little black or a little white…

    All about iPod Photo Apps

    Well hello there!!! I’m Michelle aka Willieburgscrapper from Brooklyn, New York! First and foremost- HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRISTY! I am so excited to get a chance to talk about one of my favorite subjects in the world- taking photos with an iPhone/iTouch. I was lucky to get an iTouch as a birthday present last year and it totally changed my creative process. When I first got my iTouch I only used the Hipstamatic app but discussions with app addicted friends got me to expand my horizons. There are a lot of great iPhone applications out for the average super busy scrapbook addict / shutterbug. Here is a quick run down on the 4 photo related applications…

    Blonde Copic Color Combos

    Today my copic video is about some of my fav Blonde Copic color combos. In it I go over how I color hair along with the combos. Hair is like my #1 FAV thing to color and I could ramble forEVER on this one topic! Here I have some pics of the colors I used in the video so you can get a better look. This first one is my go to blonde! You can take it lighter by starting with E50 and use E50, E51 and E53 or darker by starting with E53 then using E55 and E57. It also makes a great blonde “base” to experiment with combos…
