We’ve just moved into a new house and updated the bathroom. Thinking about the decoration took ages but we finally decided on some tiles and a pale colour scheme. Then we started thinking about colour. We didn’t want a garish Avocado Green bathroom of our childhood, but did want to lift the stark white somehow.
The children have just been learning about natural disasters at school and have come back with some amazing drawings, so I photographed them and uploaded them to Snapfish to allow me to create a stunning pair of wall mounted photo acrylics with a truly unique and nautical theme to them.
Prepare for 2016 with a personalised photo calendar. Here are our four favourite creative calendar ideas from guest bloggers. Hopefully these will help to inspire you to create your own.
Welcome in 2016 with this colourful calendar. If you love travelling, then why not fill your calendar with your dream destinations like Laura did from LThornberry. With any luck it will help inspire you to turn these holiday dreams into reality!!
Enjoy creating an easy fun photo block with the kids. It is a great way to spend a rainy day! Follow these 3 simple steps!
What you’ll need:
- Scrap wood
- Bright and colourful washi tape
- Mini pegs
- Your favourite Snapfish print
The best way to stop all those masterpieces piling up is to scan and upload your kids art and to your secure Snapfish account! You can really showcase the work as a large poster print, smaller table top photo panels, coasters or even a couple of small magnets for the fridge.
If you don’t have a scanner, you can photograph their art. Be sure to lay it against a plain, white background, zoom in close enough to see details, and use a flash.
You can easily crop, rotate, or adjust the brightness of your digital images with our free editing tools. Click on ‘edit & organise’ and then ‘fix & enhance’ on your photos page to get started.
While not everybody enjoys having their photo taken, people do make the most fascinating subjects. Getting the perfect shot can take a little practice, so we’ve put together our top five tips to help you put friends and family in the frame with portrait photos:
- Is the light right?
It’s best to avoid bright sunlight, so start by looking for a shady place. This will soften the light and avoid dark shadows obscuring your shot. Look for areas of even lighting, such as next to a high wall, or when a cloud completely covers the sun. Dawn and dusk also create magical soft and subtle lighting that’s ideal for creating stunning portrait shots.
Gifts from the kitchen are heart-warming. Not only do you get to taste your friends’ wonderful delights, you get their recipes, too. Whether you’re part of a club, a school, or a group of friends, creating a Christmas Recipe Book is a beautiful way to collect and remember each year’s event. You can even sell the books for fund raising. And with our new Magic Layout tools, it’s easier than ever before.
Bonus Tip: Turn our stationery photo cards into beautiful recipes cards, with or without photos, to include when giving baked goods or other kitchen treats.
