Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

A few days ago we shot the Summer 2010 issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. This is really one of many FUN elements of my job!

We take almost every photo that you see in the magazine right here in Brian Harder’s Studio in Calgary, Alberta.

Here Brian is checking out the photo he just took on the computer screen to make sure it is FABULOSA – and it wasn’t!!! It took us about 1 hour to get the shot we were looking for!

Katharina is our very talented HAND MODEL!  All the hands in our magazine belong to her! Aren’t they just perfect!!!! Next time you see her be sure to let her know you love her hands!!! Thanks Katharina!!!!

That is me! Probably one of the most time consuming jobs I have is getting ready for the photo shoot.

All the projects, layouts, photos etc that are used in the magazine need to be carefully labelled and categorized so that when Jennifer Steinhauer (our graphic designer) and I go to put the magazine together, finding the photos that go in a certain section are easy and fast. It took me a few tries to get a good system but we are ROCKIN it now!!!!! At least I think we are!

I could not do this without my Mom! I wish I had a photo of her at the shoot with us! She is instrumental and I am the luckiest daughter in the entire world!

Have a beautiful Easter weekend everyone.
