The Big Show Off!



April is a big month because it is my birth month. There is always something going on in April, but in the past, it all happened in the store. That is about to change this year.

If you are here, chances are that you either have a copy of PaintShop Pro, or want to give it a try. If you don’t already have a copy, you can use the full version for free for 30 days by downloading the trial.

What do I show off?

You can show off anything you do or did with your PSP based on something you learned (or saw) in the Campus. It could be from a trick in the Tips and Tricks section, it can be a technique you applied from one of the Master Classes, or an element you created based on the Element Creation section. You can even show off one calendar page you did from the Calendar Making Class or one of the Beginner Scrap Projects (which are absolutely free).

How do I show off?

Just add a comment below and link to your project, whether it is on your blog, a gallery, or another public location (after all, you want to show off, right?) AND you have to include a link to what page or section of the Campus you found the tutorial or tip. A project without the tutorial link will not be counted, so make sure you include it.

Five-250How often can I show off?

You can enter up to 5 projects in the Show off contest so you can get as many as 5 entries into the draw from this page.

Can I get more than 5 entries?

Yes. Although you can only have 5 entries from the Show off itself, everyone who makes at least ONE purchase (or has one monthly payment going through), either in the Campus or in the Store, will get ONE entry. And to combine the Show off with the Spend now, Save later promotion, if you spend $60 or more in the store and the Campus combined, you get an additional entry (and yet, one additional entry for any extra $50 spent).

So, what is there to win?

At the end of the month, a random draw will take place to attribute various prizes. All the prizes are not yet confirmed so here is a PARTIAL list only (others will be added as they are confirmed):




One copy of Filter Forge 3.0 Standard

(valued at $149)









Two copies of PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate

(valued at $99 each)






5 Master Classes of your choice

(valued at $100)




You have the whole month of April to Show off. It is not a speeding contest. It is not a judged contest. You can Show off a layout, a kit, a hybrid project, a card, anything you did with PaintShop Pro with the help of the Campus.

Are you ready?

This promotion starts today (April 1st).

Go for it!

For Photos That Matter

  1. Hi Dianne,

    1 – The page, concerning the tutorial Quick-tiles, is attractive. I like these tints.

    2 – I too, use the techique of extraction to embellish some of my pages; but what prefers chiefly it is to create and for it we need an outstanding professor.

    For other pages, I left a comment in the gallery.

  2. My last two entries.

    Entry #4

    Wood texture tutorial: — it’s not a realistic wood texture because sometimes people stain the wood with odd colors. The “planks” were something I created with stripes used as a texture.

    Inside the frame is “art” created with the marble tutorial ( in combination with a leaf texture that came with PSP X5.

    Entry #5

    This was done using the Quick Tile tutorial using my photograph as the source for the colors:

    I also used extraction techniques to remove the little flowers from the larger plant to give the idea of the flowers drifting down and out of the photograph.

    Ribbons created from templates by Christine Smith.

    This challenge really pushed me to try some techniques I hadn’t tried before. I wanted to say how inspired I was by the others who contributed to this challenge. Good job, everybody! I hope there are more to come.

  3. Finally got mine posted to my blog.

    RGB Mask Extractions

    Edit Selection

    Object Remover

    All in all, I must admit that the edit selection technique was my favorite with the RGB mask running a close second.

    Off to look at everyone else’s.

    • You are more than welcome to show off something you created based on a tutorial, a class or a tip from the Campus. There is always one free Master Class you can view, and a few tips and tricks in the Resources section. Remember that each project you show off is one entry to the BIG Show Off contest for a chance to win those fantastic prizes.

  4. Hard to choose what to show, as I did almost all the elements tutorials. I used a lot of those elements in my digital scrapbook kits.
    This elements I made using the element lessons, button and button hole, it is in my latest kit.
    here is the link to the lessons:
