My Deep, Dark Secret

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 07/31/2014 - 14:38

Like most people, I got my scrapbooking start in the real world with paper. And I went through a lot of paper. I made quite a few albums before I stumbled on digital scrapbooking. Having come quite far into this new version of the hobby, I've been harboring what I've considered a deep-dark secret: a somewhat extreme resentment of my paper albums.

New Bundle: Cruising

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 07/22/2014 - 11:24

I missed posting yesterday as we had a friend in town and we gave her a tour of Oregon. Hopefully I can share some photos soon. But now that means I'm playing catch up!

I'm pretty excited about my new bundle. If you were around in the spring, you know I experienced some creative angst, which was centered around my inability to create an ocean/nautical bundle to my liking. Many months later, I think I've finally done it. Despite the fact that the palette only has colors I don't like, they some how come together to create something I do like. And I hope you like it too.

Scrapbooking Guilt

To my daily surprise, I've become something of a scrapbooking expert, or at least, I get treated like one. I'm not sure how thorough my knowledge actually is, but there you go. Frankly, it's given me a whole new view of what an "expert" actually is. But that's not really the point of this post.

My New Macro Lens

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 07/02/2014 - 14:00

One thing I really wanted for my birthday was a macro lens for my camera phone. I love taking macro photos, particularly of flowers, and when I heard that they made clip on lenses for smart phones, I decided I couldn't really live without it. The lens I got is not anything serious, but fun to play around with. It's basically like attaching a magnifying glass to your phone. It's a little tricky to get the angle just right, since you have to move around to get the focus right.
