from Starting Points to Stop Motion

Hello all!

I know I said I’d be back with more LSNED pages, but I changed my mind (though my lesson from yesterday is at the end of this post, so there’s some LSNED here…). I have a different Shimelle inspired project for you today, a page created from her latest ‘Starting Points’ challenge. You have to start a 12×12 page with four 5.5″x5.5″ squares of paper, and a narrow strip of paper across the middle. Here’s my take on it:

Supplies = Bazill Basics Cardstock, Pink Paisley ‘Old School’ 6×6 Paper Pack, Basic Grey ‘Clay Motif’ Paper, Making Memories Shimmer Alphas (Black), PaperMania Curly Font Green, Selection of Embellishments. 

I found the starting point a really great way to bring the page together quickly, especially as I had this pack of Pink Paisley ‘Old School’ papers which I’d been waiting to use on a page, and the colours matched this photo so well:

And I was able to root around in my ‘odd embellishments’ to add a fun mix of items to the page, including a butterfly which used to be a pendant:
Are you wondering what my lesson from yesterday was? Did you guess from the post title? I learnt to make a Stop Motion movie using this App for my Ipod! I was inspired by movies like this one by Mollie Makes, and this one by Papermash, I think these movies are so cute, and when I found I could get an App for 69p to make one myself I just had to try it!
My movie isn’t perfect, as I didn’t have a way of propping the Ipod up, and hey, it was my first try. But it’s less than 20 seconds long, so if you want to take a peek it won’t take much of your time, and you can see my scrapbook page above coming together as if by magic! The embedded video is a bit small, you can view it on YouTube here to get the full effect.

What do you think? I had tons of fun making it. I added the title and music using the ‘Splice’ App after saving the Stop Motion movie. It took a while to do, so I certainly won’t be doing it for every scrapbook page, but I do want to try it again once I’ve worked out a way to prop up my Ipod.

Would you like to see more movies like this? Do you know of any cute Stop Motion movies you can tell me about?

That’s all for now, see you soon, x

  • How clever is this! And I didn’t know about the apps – I think I am going to have to get an iphone… Love the way you clustered your elements along that middle strip.

  • Yes, I agree with Louise – it’s a fab little video. I love the whole structure of it – the way the photos being taken from slightly different points gives if a lovely old-fashioned jumpy appearance – I know it was because you didn’t have a stand for the i-pod, but you know, it makes the film such fun! The end result is a cute little page – but so nice to see the process in such a fun way!

  • I am seriously impressed with this Jennifer! It’s brilliant. Yes, I would love to see more of these – I don’t like videos that are too long, this quick one is perfect. And so is the page – that photo is a gem

  • What a cute idea!? I bet it took a while though and you must have to remember to keep taking the pics? I don’t know anything about these apps etc but I admire anyone who manages to use them to great effect like you have.

  • Clever vid! I think that the layout is great – but best of all is that grin – so utterly irresistable I bet! *lol*
