Watch this thought provoking video.

This is why photos are important. But listen to the lyrics at 3:00. Heritage Makers understand that you shouldn’t make people “read between the lines.”

Club HM Challenge Winners

July 14, 2011   

The Club HM Facebook page is an active community of heritage makers from across the U.S. and Canada. Several times a week “challenges” are posted to encourage people to share their projects with the group. Winners are chosen by the number of “likes” or by the HM staff. Recently a child’s photo challenge was announced and we’ve posted the winners here because they really portray the “magic” and mission of Heritage Makers.

Studio Tips

July 8, 2011   

1) Use the right size book for the right size photos. Multiple 4×6 or 5×7 photos at full size do not usually fit inside an 8×8 book.

2) When using buttons, fit to appropriate size. Coat buttons are 1 inch across. Shirt buttons are a half inch and baby buttons are a quarter of an inch. Check element size in the LAYOUT tab and a ruler.

3) Turn rulers on to check alignment, equal size borders etc. Turn them off for an overall design feel.

4) Alphabets are easier to find if you place only one number, one lower case, one upper case in your MY FAVORITES folder.

5) We see the finished book in spreads. Go to the VIEW/PRINT PREVIEW. Faster easier, more reliable.

6) A well designed page should work upside down or sideways. Flip things, and change them up to make a spread.

7) Change the size of elements that drop on the page at equal size. In nature, little is identical in size or rotation.

8) Overlap elements to make natural design groupings but make sure enough of each element shows to preserve its identity.
