Show off what you are working on in August, be it a scrapbook page, a tutorial, or anything else you want!
We are curious and want to see.August 8, 2017 at 12:36 am #14376
A number of years ago a friend invited me to celebrate her 60th birthday and I decided to do a collage for her of photos taken at the Australian Ladies Open Golf. This was so well received it has become a tradition now that golfing ladies’ “zero” birthdays are marked with a collage. In 2017 I have done a 70th and have a 90th for later in the year. I have just finished an 80th which I have uploaded here. I have also included one I did for her husband’s 90th in 2013 – Cyril is still playing golf at least twice a week!August 8, 2017 at 1:44 am #14377
Hello Marlene. …. you make terrific collage pages… the one for Cyril really touches the heart just by viewing it and I think it is wonderful he is still able to play golf.. Great work Marlene! This would be a good idea for what I would like to do for my mother’s room at the nursing home. so I hope you won’t mind if I ask what size page did you start with and what did you resize it to for uploading here in the forum. I have always thought our size of A4 and A3 photo paper would make a great collage for hanging on a wall. This size would make for a great album book as well. Thank you for showing us your projects.

Great work Marlene. These layouts must keep you busy. Do you take the photos or do your fellow players supply them? Never played golf but did a lot of Badminton until my Achilles was nearly snapping and then had to give up 🙁 Think a bit of walking is all I’m fit for these days.

Marlene, what nice memories you created… No wonder it was well received. I particularly love Cyril’s page with his old photos and knowing that he is still playing golf.August 9, 2017 at 2:50 am #14393
Thank you ladies for your nice comments. To answer the questions: I use the A4 size paper with 300 dpi resolution, usually in landscape but have done portrait. This size is good because I can use simple Document Frames which are just a plain black and don’t detract from the collage. I resized these two to 30% – any smaller and they look horrible. The photos are a bit of a mixture, we have a lady golfer who takes photos for the local paper and of special events, plus I take some and other ladies pass on some they have taken. The ones for Cyril’s page were given to me by Fay and I have done some special pages with photos supplied – one of our ladies was the Drum Major for the Mount Gambier City Band for 25 years and when she retired I did a page for her (attached). Now I have retired from work and Committee commitments I have more time to “play” with PSP.August 9, 2017 at 6:12 am #14394
Absolutely love your work, Marlene.August 9, 2017 at 2:53 pm #14399
So far Summer has made a brief appearance so I decided to create a summer wreath. All the elements are my own creations. Thank you so much for the chance to share. AnitaAugust 9, 2017 at 6:02 pm #14404
Hi Marlene…. thanks so much for sharing the size of the page and the resize amount for uploading here in the forum for the A4. I am going to try doing some projects in this page size for here and also for my Mum’s room at the nursing home. Sometimes it is nice to do something different than a 12×12. The page for the Mt Gambia band is great, love the way you have displayed the photos. really lovely work Marlene. Thanks for showing us.
Hello Anita…. a really lovely wreath page and the colours are beautiful… .your element creations are very nice. Do you do card making for your designs? I am sure they would be well received if you do.. thanks for sharing with us your projects.
best wishes to you both,

Marlene, what a beautiful page! I like very much the way you arrange the photos on top of a ribbon and across the canvas. Great work.
Anita. lovely wreath you’ve made. The elements are very nice and great choice of colors.August 11, 2017 at 6:06 am #14418
This is the page I made inspired on the Lab 07-Module 07. From the ideas given, I used the color wood texture for the background paper and created the negative chevron and lined overlay papers (cass-tutorials).
I added the clip (Blue Flower Art freebie) and Multiple color title. Instead of each word of a different color as suggested, I made each letter with another color using the technique shown on cass-Masterclass-NO KIT SCRAP 2. The font is Happy Camper, also mentioned in the lesson.
I included BuburuResources freebies elements; Date element from Sheila Reid-MAR 2016 Unwind Blog Train and KAagard-ByAir-BorderStitches-Black.
I had fun making this page based on my first lesson of The Lab.August 12, 2017 at 12:42 am #14444
Hi Cristina!… a nice page and elements that work well to create your layout , really like the colours of your textured background paper. Cristina you gave me inspiration to go and do a couple of lessons that are in the Lab 7 modules 6 and 8 that I had not done yet and incorporate them in a card project.. Module 6 had a lesson for Patterned Fill shape and I used it on the greeting on my card. Module 8 has a lesson for Triangle Pattern and I have made a background paper with the pattern that was created.. I used Cassel-Leaves1 freebie element and also a Hibiscus flower that was created with a purchased script from Joannes Digital Design. I often send email greetings to family so this one will be an addition to my collection for printing as well. . Sometimes we can forget the Lab modules contain many ideas . Thank you for reminding me. There is still more lessons to try so will enjoy doing them also……… Dawn.August 12, 2017 at 9:17 am #14446
Hi, Dawn! Thank you for your kind comments on my page. I wanted a different color for the background than the green one of the example. So, I used one that worked well with the blend mode. I’ve just joined The Lab and I am liking very much the lessons. Cassel has great tutorials
Your card is beautiful! The triangle background, the hibiscus flower, the leaves … everything works so well together. I am sure whoever gets this card will be very happy.August 12, 2017 at 2:31 pm #14449
Our two younger grandsons love playing sports. This summer we have been to football games and baseball games, loads of fun. We visited OakLawn Farm Zoo in the Annapolis Valley, the two little people were there with us approximately 20 years ago, the place hasn’t changed, the same little mound is right there, happy memories 🙂August 12, 2017 at 7:27 pm #14462
Hi Anne, you have created a nice memory page for the family album. Time goes by so quickly …… it is great to have photos to remember those happy occasions.
Dawn.August 12, 2017 at 7:36 pm #14463
Hello Cristina, Thank you for your comment on my card…. I also enjoy doing Cassel’s tutorials.

Anne, creating this kind of page is liking going back in time and reliving these happy moments. It begins with choosing the photos, the papers, elements… It is fun all the way. Nice work!August 13, 2017 at 1:25 pm #14506
Thank you April and Cristina! It was a fun little project, always nice looking back at photos of the young ones 🙂 Great work from you two and others on this site.
