Welcome to day two of the Orange Blog Hop

Welcome to day two of the Orange Blog Hop where members of Fiskateers, a community sponsored by Fiskars, is sharing their passion for crafting! You should have arrived here from Lyn’s Thoughts. If you just happened to stumble upon this hop, please be sure to go back to The Fiskateers Blog  and start at the beginning.

For my project I did hybrid pages, keeping with our orange theme I did my Thanksgiving Pages from last year. I figured I should do them before Thanksgiving is here this year plus this is one holiday I tend to think of when using orange (Halloween being the other). My pictures are on a brownish mat and then mounted on an orange-ish background (that is the computer part done with My Memories Scrapbooking Software. Everything after that I did.) I took these pages and mounted them on white cardstock then my orange12x12 cardstock background pages. Each one is decorated using different items so I listed what I used below each picture.

As a reminder...I am aware some of these are not stitched together perfectly. My paper is 12x12 but my scanner is not so each page you see is really four different scans stitched to make the one page which means I have four chances of throwing my page off by tilting a scan or not getting it just so. Any ways, as you can see I did mess some up slightly so I ask you to just look past these. My birthday is coming and hopefully I will get the new software I wanted....PSE 9 or 10. (Did you know they came out with a Photoshop 10?)

I hope you liked the pages I have done for day two of this hop. Of course you have another chance to win...

My Memories software is so easy to use and has fantastic paper to choose from. Even though I used the same paper on all my backgrounds there are so many to choose from. I like using this for hybrid pages (like the ones I showed you) but there is so much more than can be done using it. Check it out for yourself. I hope you like what you see because one lucky person taking this hop will be winning their own My Memories Suite.

  8. I think that my favorite kit is the Halloween one. My daughter still dresses up, so it would come in handy. (She's 26, by the way). I like your layout--the colors, subject, everything. sharon dot gullikson at gmail dot com
