Hi Everyone, firstly thank you so much for your lovely birthday greetings. I promised to let you see hubby's present to me, be prepared for LOTS of photos and words!
What do I think of it? It's bigger than I thought and although it is collapsible, I think I will leave it up, I haven't room for it really, in my craft room, so I think I will have to see what I can do for space. It's on top of the sofa bed atm. It's convenient there and easy to use, but doesn't look great! It's a big black box after all.
All I did was place the card in the box, take a piccie and adjust the size in Photoshop, I haven't needed to adjust the colour, which sometimes could take me more than making the card! I have done 2 cards and pleased with the result, I have to learn what is good and maybe try and learn a few tricks with it. There are 3 background colours in vinyl supplied, black, which I used, grey and blue. Again I will try each background and see what happens. This box has a 3 pin plug, others I saw had USB connectors. I wanted a plug. I would have bought a smaller size if they had one, the smaller versions had a "click together" connection to hold the box in shape, I liked the Velcro on this one.
I had a really hard look at the light boxes over a few months while thinking about this and in the end decided that although it was bigger than I wanted, I would have it. I've still got to get used to it and think, maybe, as there is a lip on the front I may need to get a tripod for my camera.
I have taken photos of 2 cards, a card I made last week, after I put the box together and one of the ones I made yesterday.
Are you ready for the piccies? The card has just been placed inside with no intention of taking a proper photo of it. The card is 5 x 7. The photos haven't been edited in anyway.
