micfin, I can imagine that was not easy to make this complex design to look seamless. This is something I have to learn more. But you really managed and the result is great. These daily layouts you create for sure keep you on your toes. Nice work!
Peggy, what a lovely card you made with the preset shape. I love the colors, the background, the elements and the font. Great work!October 12, 2017 at 1:48 am #15290
Thanks for all the encouragement, ladies. It really helps build my confidence as I am always second-guessing myself. That’s one of the great things about this forum. The encouragement and sharing of ideas. Everyone is always so willing to share their methods.
Peggy, I think your layout is adorable! Everything works so well together.
Cristina, what I did for the designs was to start out with a little piece of it from the original (there wasn’t much there to copy.) I lined up two copies until they looked seamless, then merged them. After repeating this over and over, I finally had a background large enough for my purposes. And I can now use it for other projects!
Here is yesterday’s pic for my group with the theme being “All Denim Day.” I was able to use Cassel’s Multi Photo Frame 8 Photos Collage. I used a couple of different denim backgrounds that I had and Flood Filled two of the frame’s layers with them. Also, I changed the color of the large photo space to use for my text. The lighter denim pattern was used as the fill for the font which is The Secret. As usual, the pics came from a google search.October 12, 2017 at 8:17 am #15295
micfin, I really like your denim layout. I also love the font. I am a fanatic about fonts.
PeggyOctober 12, 2017 at 3:50 pm #15297
micfin, another very nice project. the denim patterns and the photos and frame makes a nice presentation. I also like the font you have used.

I am still working on my collection of cards to give to my sister-in-law and as I know she also likes vintage, I have decided to do some vintage style postcards to add to the mix I am giving her. I have also created a postcard back which I have posted to show how it would be when printed. The free background and home images are from the old design shop.. and I have again used the girl image that was on my earlier post because I felt it fitted the scene theme. the gold spike effect on the card was done with a gold pattern and then using the Blinds and Spiky Halo in PSP Effects. a technique I picked up from a free tutorial. The font I used is Harrington.

Gorgeous again, AprilDawn. Your choice of images are fabulous. I have lots of fun using the distortion effects, too. And the blinds texture can give simply gorgeous effects. I use it sparingly or my group members would get sick of it. 🙂
Thanks for the feedback, Peggy and AprilDawn. I am I HUGE font fanatic; it’s like an addiction for me. lol I got The Secret from Dealjumbo.com. They offer free goods all the time that can be used for personal and commercial purposes. https://dealjumbo.com/downloads/category/freebies/October 13, 2017 at 4:56 am #15304
Gorgeous work Dawn and Micfin. love them both and thanks for the link Micfin.

You’re very welcome, Sheila. You can sign up for a newsletter or you can just check their site from time to time. Currently there’s a bundle of 12 free fonts on the HungryJPEG page. https://thehungryjpeg.com/bundle/93815-the-october-free-font-bundle/
Cass, I hope it’s okay that I’m sharing these free resources. They don’t sell the same type of items that your store sells.

Thanks, micfin. I already have it. Probably from the same bundle—lol.October 13, 2017 at 1:29 pm #15308
It is so nice to come here and see these great layouts.
micfin, your work is lovely as always. Nice photos and I like the way you used cass-multi-photo-frame and the denim texture for the font… and I love the font too! Thank you for the explanation of how you did the seamless pattern!
Dawn, your card is also lovely, so delicate and with techniques, I’ve never heard about 🙂 I can only imagine how great it will look once printed.
Great work here, ladies!

micfin , Cristina and Sheila, Thank You all for taking the time to leave a comment on my project. I appreciate it very much. I am enjoying my card making at present and have quite a few more to go to make a nice collection. I want to get them to my sister-in-law before Christmas so she has got them for next year as most of them will be done for any occasion greetings.
Best wishes to you all,
Dawn.October 17, 2017 at 6:50 pm #15362
@micfin, I have no problem sharing links to resources that could be useful to other members! Go for it!October 18, 2017 at 10:45 pm #15370
Hello everyone, thanks for the kind words, I’m really happy with my baby steps with PSP 🙂
Here’s another one. I tried my hand with the plaid pattern after watching one of the tutorials and I also used one of the speech bubbles from last month’s freebie.October 19, 2017 at 1:18 am #15371
Rizzi, that’s absolutely adorable.
Thanks for the kind words, ladies.October 19, 2017 at 5:52 am #15393
Rizzi, what a cute layout… Very good!October 20, 2017 at 1:33 am #15396
Hello Rizzi, you have made a lovely plaid pattern and it makes a colourful background to all your elements… a very nice page .
Dawn.October 20, 2017 at 3:56 am #15397
A great page Rizzi, you must be very pleased with the result. Well done.
SheilaOctober 20, 2017 at 9:50 am #15403
I’m jumping in with Module 3 in the Basic Scrap Course 1 with a picture of our daughter and her sweet Lab, Hershey. Hershey, who passed a few months ago, will be a part of the family through wonderful memories forever. I am so glad Cassel encouraged me to start with the Basic Scrap Course 1. I had used several earlier versions of PSP but when updating felt totally lost. So I really recommend the Basics.October 20, 2017 at 10:28 am #15404
Love it, Shirley, and so will your daughter.October 20, 2017 at 10:53 am #15405
Thank you Micfin. I think I will frame it and give as a surprise next time she comes.

Lovely page Shirley! a great memory page for the family album.
Dawn.October 21, 2017 at 8:27 am #15411
Shirley, what a lovely way to keep the nice memories of Hershey. I am sure your daughter will love it. I like very much the different papers you used. Great page!October 23, 2017 at 10:55 pm #15449
Thanks for your sweet notes, Dawn and Christina. I’m very hesitant to share as I look at everyone’s work. You all are so professional in your work here; so I set my sites a bit higher each step taken. I’m going to attempt to share a Halloween Card for my older sister. I had fun doing it and Cassel hasn’t seen it yet but encourages me to share.October 23, 2017 at 11:01 pm #15453
Shirley, we have ALL been beginners at one point. We all learned step by step, with tutorials, on our own or with guidance. Everyone in here has been very supportive. Some members are total newcomers to using PSP so you will just encourage them to share also. Every new project you post will be a step forward. We all here for you and with you.October 23, 2017 at 11:13 pm #15454
The images below show a card I made for my older sister who was born on Halloween. The colors are not as vibrant as in the original; after scanning, I did some color adjustment in PSP which helped but still not what I wanted. I do cards often but this is the first time I used PaintShopPro to do the work. The card base used three different papers, a sign, cake, and tree that I found just looking for Halloween ideas. I found some witch feet that I used on the top of the cake, adding a ribbon between the bottom and mid layer. I did add some shadows.
The words, grass, and some of the pumpkins were fussy cut and added on top of the originals with spacers behind. After doing the card base I made 9 tags which I scanned all on one page to give you an idea. Again the tags look much better in real life. Finally, to explain it I wrote a poem for her. It just folds over the card which was mailed this afternoon. I’m so excited. I just discovered we can click on pictures and they enlarge to see them better. Also, I didn’t mention that the top opens and the tags are inside the folded cardstock with the threads hanging out.

Hello Shirley, I agree with Cassel, we have all been beginners at some stage, so please continue to share your creations with us. Your card and tags are very nice and I am sure your sister will enjoy receiving them, knowing that they were made by you.. I especially like the poem that you have written for her. Look forward to seeing more of your projects….. Best wishes to you!
Dawn.October 24, 2017 at 3:54 am #15457
Great work Shirley. I too make cards and mini scrap books when I have time as although I am completely addicted to PSP I need to get my paper and card fix too. As Dawn has said, keep on showing your work and I too love your poem to your sister.

You did a great job, Shirley!October 24, 2017 at 7:03 am #15462
Shirley, talking for myself, I am in no way a professional. Like you, I started with the Basic Course last year and now I am learning with the great tutorials of The Lab. I think the main goal here is for us to have fun working with PSP, learn and support each other. For me, I love to see all layouts, beginners or more advanced.
Your card is lovely and what a great idea to have the pull tabs! Your sister will love the card and the poem. Great job!November 1, 2017 at 11:56 pm #15634
Hi All, I’m a bit late in getting back to you ladies who commented on my work here (Sheila, Cristina, Micfin, Dawn) and I do so appreciate your encouraging words. It took me a few minutes to find this page as I kept looking at all the work that has been shared in the last few days. What an exciting group! Look forward to everyone’s work as we move through the next few weeks.
