LINKY PARTY + Photography Tip: How to Shoot Heart Framed Photos


Before the linky party, here’s first a great photography tip for you to frame your loved ones. Next time you sipping coffee at a lovely terrace overlooking the ocean or so, create some unique vacation pictures and do this. You can do this taking all kinds of pictures of your family on vacation. Actually, this photography tip is also suitable for marriage proposals, wedding photo valentines cards and mothers day gifts…, btw. Because you can put both people as well as scenes in your frame. I’m thinking of a panoramic view of your vacation rental, or an Italian seaside scene. You get the picture ??!!(pun intended).

Now this tip may be really great & versatile, but it’s really simple. And I discovered it by sheer accident, playing with a coffee cup sleeve.  You know I sell patterns to make your own coffee cup sleeves, so you know that coffee cup sleeves do not enter my life very often. But this day it did. And look.


Photography Tip to create a Heart Frame Around Your Photos

1. Take the coffee cup sleeve in your hand.

2. Tuck the top of the sleeve inwards so that a heart shape results.
