arrhythmia, I so pleased its helped you!

I don't know what kind the lightbulbs are, I thought they were just energy saving! I've had a look on them and it doesn't say either. The box is approx 45cm high x 50cm wide x 30cm deep, but I think you could use a slightly smaller or bigger one as long as it fits the tray that you're using - the bulbs we have are long so it needs to be that high.

If you come across any problems just let me know!

OH!! My husband was taking some photos using the box last night with his super duper new camera and they all came out with a very slight pink tinge - we worked out it was because he was wearing a red t-shirt that must have reflected (it was only in a certain area of the shot). This hasn't happened before and it must have been 'cos his camera is so good, but there is a way to get rid of it if it happens! Go to the "colour levels" box and use the "value" drop down menu next to adjust individual colour levels and you need to play about with the opposite colour from what you need to change and it will bring your picture back to being white. OR maybe just wear white clothes when doing it Grin

Laurasaurus posted an excellent tutorial that I adapted to make my clutches - I posted a link to it in my first post. I basically left out the bands and added a flap instead, I could try and make a tutorial if anyone was interested?

I think thats an excellent idea. I've been thinking about applying for the 3d/2d shows, but would much rather get into something a bit more 'crafty' rather than worrying about if I have the right qualifications to show somewhere and Glasgow (possibly Scotland as a whole) is totally lacking in that kind of thing.

I think if you held it in the right area and did a bit of advertising there would be a lot of people both interested in having a stall and buying (I bag a stall please!). It doesn't seem that there are all that many Scottish craftsters but I'm sure there are many talented people out there who would jump at the chance to have a stall if they knew about it.

You get my vote, and I'd be totally happy to help you out with anything if you needed it:)

I'm glad you found it useful!

I know its a bit of a faff making the box and the lightbulb tray, but I think its worth it if you have an online business and need good product photos. A lot of people seem to think I get my photos done professionally, but this cost next to nothing to do and the results are just as good imo Smiley

SamplerUK in conjuction with the original one.

This has crossed my mind before and I think its a great idea. I've contributed to the Sampler this month, but agree that I probably won't get a lot out of it being in the UK myself I just did it for fun! I'd definitely be interested in a UK Sampler and would be interested in helping set it up if I thought there would be interest.

arrhythmia and Beadbakery, I have just posted the tutorial on how to take photos here:
I really hope you find it helpful Smiley

Not to mention that I am feeling "sad" that I have spend a good chunk of my Saturday night making it! I must be getting old Grin
