5 Simple and Beautiful Ways to Capture the Memories of Your Summer Holidays


So, the summer holidays have come and gone again, leaving you only with memories. The great news is that the memories you have now saved in the form of photographs don’t have to be forgotten on your camera or smartphone. You can turn them into beautiful decorations and conversation starters. And, by doing so you will not only never forget the precious moments, but you will also have a reminder of what you have to look forward to on the next holiday! Try these five great custom photo printing ideas to preserve and display your memories.

  1. Home Décor
    You can take your favourite photographs and print them on large canvas spreads or canvas sets or even framed posters. These can then be hung in whichever part of your house you choose. Both as beautiful decor items and special, personal memories, these photographs will make the perfect conversation starter when guests come over.
  2. Photobooks
    Take all your holiday photos and compile them into a dedicated, beautifully laid out photobook that documents your entire holiday from start to finish, capturing all the epic and funny moments.
  3. Homeware
    Choose some of the real stand-out images and commit them to various pieces of new homeware. Think out-of-the-box. For instance, who said you cannot print a picture on a cutting board? Coasters, mugs and/or placemats are also perfect to display memorable images.
  4. Calendars and Clocks
    Select twelve of your favourite photos, dedicate each of them to a particular month, and create the perfect personalised calendar for the coming year. Or, you can create a clock using one image of your choice.
  5. Photo Prints
    Alternatively, you could simply create beautiful, full-colour prints of your favourite pictures and frame them or save them in a photobook, as you prefer. You can print them in a variety of sizes to suit your needs.

Whatever you choose to do with your memories, RapidStudio can help you bring them to life

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

Paint By Shadow Canvases:
RapidStudio and CraftRoutes got back in touch with their inner artist in Pretoria last week.
CraftRoutes, a specialist arts and crafts shop in Pretoria, invited Paint-by-Shadow to be the flagship product at their annual exhibition in the Kolonnade Shopping Mall, Montana Park.


Our largest size (80 x 120 cm) canvas was placed on the stand and throughout the 6 days of exhibiting, the canvas was painted by myself (product developer), Sue Peddle (owner of CraftRoutes) and all the sales staff from the store.


The King Protea image was developed for Sue and her shop, which reflected the mood of Heritage Day.  This image also show cases the Proudly South African product Paint-by-Shadow truly is.




Have you always wanted to be an artist but thought it was too difficult?
We have developed an innovative new product called “Paint-by-Shadow. Paint-by-Shadow is a great starter product that takes any of the initial apprehension and unknowns out of the painting process.
