Baby Album and a Picasa Trick

It's fun when your friends have babies! I love taking photos of them and creating gifts to give them. This gorgeous chipboard set from Fancy Pants was perfect for showing off the photos from an evening we spent with them.

If you look closely you will see that the photos are predominately black and white - but with colour around the baby and her clothes. I did this effect in Picasa. Under the Effect tab there is a "Black and White Focal" option. Around that area the original colour of the photo is maintained. You can make this area bigger or smaller and move it around and make it stronger and weaker.

It's a wonderful feature and you should try it out! I wanted to emphasie the lovely girl and the colour of her clothing. I then choose papers that were in that colour scheme too.

I have lots of these lovely Baby Box sets for sale. They make such wonderful gifts. Head to to check them out.

And don't forget to go and check out Hilary and Clarissa's galleries. They are our new Design Team members and their kits are now ready to purchase! YAY! There are some specials for purchasing their kits too - free postage and some free Kaisercraft pearl strips.
