Well, my fun, relaxing vacation came to a quick end.. so sad.... it never lasts as long as I need. I was back to work on July 23 and I was soooooo busy trying to catch up. This is the first I've had a chance to blog... I was trying to keep up with the CHA goodies being released. I was seeing lots of pictures on Facebook of the new products.
I actually started a pin board for some of the items that caught my eye.
On a side note, I wanted to share some of my fave iPhone apps that make scrapping and picture taking so much fun.
Here is a list of my all time faves with a few examples...these are used more than any other apps I have.. and I have a lot!!! =)
Hipstamatic .99 cents for the basics including some great films and lens options. You do need to pay for extra film and lens combos, but worth every penny. . my all time favorite app. nothing comes close to this one. I love putting it on random and just seeing what combo is used. it never disappoints.
One of my fave combos is Jimmy Lens and Kodot XGrizzled Film..
there are so many fun combos though and its so hard to pick a favorite.
Buckhorst H1 Lens, Kodot XGrizzled Film, No Flash
Kaimal Mark II Lens, Blanko Film, No Flash
Jimmy Lens, Ina's 69 Film, No Flash
Instagram - free. my user id is "chattyscrapper" if you would like to friend me.. =)
My favorite filter is Nashville. I like the soft filter it gives and the black border. I find that my photos turn out best with this when I take the picture with the built in iPhone camera, then use the instagram app afterwards. the picture quality is better this way, in my opinion. It also lets you control the area of the photo you alter.
And for all you who want to use a windows app to view your Instagram feed, check out this software. very cool. InstaGrille
Diptic .99 centsThis one is fun for slicing up photos and showing just pieces of pics.
The pics are from last year's Thanksgiving.
InstaCollage Pro... .99 cents. this has a free version. the ads really bugged me.
what i like about this is that it's square and works well with Instagram.
this one is fun for overlapping and getting lots of pictures on a canvas.
Grid Lens .99 cents
This is sort of like Diptic, but has more frame options and it's not a square photo
Vintage Cam Pro .99 cents, but there is a free version too.
this one has great filter options.
And last, but not least....
my365 .99 cents. this one is cool because you can make a monthly calendar of photos and you can share them with friends like on Instagram. I've been using it faithfully since July 1. I love using it and seeing my month of pictures at a glance.
I think that's it for now. I have 50 photo apps on my iPhone. Crazy, huh???? I will review a few more and let you know what I think of some others. I haven't even used some of them. Just not enough time in the day. They all have some fun quality.
If you have a Photo App you love, let me know in the comments.
Toodles... I'll be back again with some cards and a layout I made. I haven't had a chance to take photos of them yet.
