FAQ


Equipment

What camera do you use?

Mostly I use my iPhone 8 Plus 10 XR. I also use a Nikon D3400 DSLR and a GoPro HERO 3+ Silver that I purchased in 2014.

What lenses do you use?

My Nikon has an 18-55 mm lens and a 70 - 300 mm lens.

What software to do you use to edit your photos?

Funny (but true) story: Instagram. For 99% of my photos, I edit them quickly in IG and then AirDrop them to my Mac. I also have an old as dirt Photoshop Elements 6 version that I use. I'd love to upgrade but the 6 does everything that I need it to for now. If you don't want to fork over a lot of money for the newer versions, you can find it on eBay for around $20-30 and it's fairly easy to learn. Adobe also offers a free 30 day trial of the most recent software. Update: I finally bit the bullet and upgraded to the newest PSE. Never looking back!

What kind of printer do you have?

I use a Canon Pixma MG6620 Wireless All-In-One Color Cloud Printer. I purchased it in 2015 and there are compatible newer models. It's 4 years old, still going strong and I've never had any issues with it. Update: I upgraded to a Canon IP8720 wide format printer. Go big or go home, right? It prints up at 13x19 and I lovelovelove it!

What kind of paper do you use?

For scrapbooking, I like to use photo paper to get really dark darks which I don't find that I get with regular cardstock. Usually I use HP Glossy Everyday Photo Paper or Canon Photo Paper Glossy Letter Size.

Side note: Because I always have multiple projects going and I tend to print a lot of photos & digital elements, I go through ink rather quickly. Instead of spending an assload (actual measurement) I found replacement ink cartridges at a fraction of the cost. And they work just as well as the Canon ink cartridges do. Each box comes with 20 inks (4 sets) and lasts me about a year to a year and a half FOR $16.99. Yes, you read that right. And it's a Prime item. Winning? I think so.

What kind of computer do you use?

I have a MacBook Air.



Memory Keeping

What font do you use for your Project Life cards?

The font is call American Typewriter, which you can find here or comparable typewriter fonts here. I use 11 point for my cards.

Where do you get your journal cards?

95% of my journaling cards are from In A Creative Bubble. I also use cards from Kelly PurkeyAli Edwards and Studio Calico.

Where did you find the photo/graphic of...

For book covers, Netflix shows, movies and random current event photos, I use Google. Seriously. It's easier to find what you're looking for if your search is more descriptive (Broadchurch vs Broadchurch Season 2 Poster.) Also, make sure you check the dpi. Otherwise you'll end up with a pixelated image when you try to blow it up to card size.

Web Design


I love your new website Who designed it for you?

I used the Anaise template from Georgia Lou Studios.  Go check out her website because there's a TON of great information regarding blogging and design. She also offers a quick crash course - with videos - on how to set up your MailChimp and get it up and running.  Huzzah! 

Sadly, it looks like she went out of business as her website is no longer active. But you can find tons of free blogger templates online or available for purchase on Creative Market
