Behind the Scenes of Volume 87 July/August 2014

We couldn’t have planned a better day! The weather was perfect for an outdoor photo shoot for the Volume 87 July/August 2014 issue.

Everyone, including the studio gasped with delight at the sight of the birdhouses from our friends at EmbroideryOnline.com. What could be better than hanging them on a tree outdoors? We found the perfect branch complete with tiny purple blooms.

Our stylist, Andrea Huffman, carefully hung the birdhouses but we quickly discovered an unwelcome variable… wind! She tied a string to hold the birdhouses steadily in place.

Steve Woods assigns Denise Holguin the important task of aiming the reflector at the birdhouses.

Steve:  “Aim over there!”

Denise:  “Where?”

Most people think beautiful photography just happens with a click of the button. There’s a little more to it than that. Steve has been responsible for the beautiful photography in our pages for over 10 years.

Steve and Eileen take a moment to review the photos on the laptop. The towel helps with the glare from the sun.

Time to photograph the next project – this charming quilt by Christy Burcham.  You’ll want to pick up the July/August issue to learn Christy’s techniques for creating this vintage-style project.

Reflectors and diffusers are used to get just the right light on the quilt.

Andrea sets up the next scene—an oh-so-cute wicker basket with little girl’s clothing. The 3D Flowers from Sealed With A Stitch can be used to accessorize anything!

Now that Denise is feeling like a professional photography assistant, the real challenge begins. Steve offered to pay 5 dollars if Denise successfully folds the reflector. Talk about easy money!

On second thought… this isn’t so easy.

Better get Eileen to try.

These reflectors could produce a nice tan!

Steve demonstrates the step-by-step approach to folding the reflector. Denise and Eileen practice their arm techniques.

Steve continues to show how easy it is to fold the reflector.

By the end of the all-day photo shoot… the Designs team was successful! I think we’ll stick with machine embroidery!

Now that you’ve had a glimpse of the Behind the Scenes for Volume 87 July/August, be sure to pick up your copy at your local dealer, craft store or order online!

    The birdhouses are darling with so much potential! I would love to have one to hang outside the window, facing the road, where I sit at my computer most of the day. There is a big bush where the cardinals land a lot & then eat at a feeder. A perfect spot for a birdhouse!

    I would hang them in my mom’s room at her retirement center. She can no longer garden, but loves watching birds and bird feeders, birdhouses, etc.

    I would hang them in my kitchen bay window so they would be protected.

    Thanks for sharing these behind the scene photos Denise! It is fun to see all of you in action. I am in awe of each issue produced by Designs and I admire Steve Wood’s talent as well.

    Just got my issue yesterday . . . beautiful and inspiring projects as always! I think the birdhouses would sit pretty on a high shelf above my window. And, I agree they would make a cheerful decoration for anyone who’s spends a lot of time indoors.

    P.S. That reflector looks like a sun shield I have for my car. Drives me nuts trying to fold it so I usually just throw it in the back hatch.

    What a fun day you all had… I actually just purchased 1 of the bird house designs & plan to place the finished birdd house in my laundry room. I have a very large dark Laundry room with lots of shelves & a few different “fancy birdhouses” already in it, it needs a lot of bright cheerful decor ;o)

    I would hang them in my enclosed front porch. I always have birds looking in. That way the birds can enjoy them, but they will be safe inside.

    My 3 bird houses are already perched in my 86 year old aunt’s assisted living apartment in N.H. She loves them and shows them off to all her guests.

    I would have to hang them on my porch or on those hooks that you can buy. Would love to hang them in the many trees in my yard but my husband has trimmed the lower branches so he can mow under them

    The ceiling in our bay window has tree branches with greenery. I decorate it for the seasons. They would be absolutely adorable hanging there to occupy the birds perched on various branches.

    I’d have to choose or else make more of them. First choice is in the windows that look out on the bird feeders, or second, perhaps under the deck overhang to nestle with the hanging plants. Maybe a bird will take the hint.

    I would put them in my dining room! Outside my dining room is my bird feeder with all its constant little visitors. Putting the birdhouses just inside the windows will bring the sense of a continuum between the outside and inside.

    I would attach this super cute flowers with wire and decorate a wreath to hang on my entry door. I would also place them randomly on a gingham tablecloth for a picnic party. Attach these sweet flowers to wine glasses to use as drink markers. I would also string them with ribbon to use as a garland. Sew many cute ideas here using these super cute and adorable flowers!
