<b>Hi Everyone’s work is so good…. hey Annie Tobin how did you make your bread look like real toast?</b>May 13, 2021 at 10:26 pm #57955
LOL! Thanks Ann … they are a tad bizarre but I think that world wild coots have ‘strange’ feet. ;DMay 13, 2021 at 10:32 pm #57957Sue ThomasParticipant
Lots of beautiful pages being posted, and nice to see a new face, Joe.
Annie, those Australian Coot feet, are the same as the North American Coots. I Haven’t seen any Coots in my area for 3 yrs, due to the drought that we going through.May 13, 2021 at 10:33 pm #57958
Thanks Cristina, always appreciated my friend. I agree that home made pasta would taste so much better so my sister and I have agreed to give it a go … I’ll let you know the outcome! As for the coot’s feet I agree with Ann they look like something from and alien planet, lol! 😉May 13, 2021 at 10:52 pm #57962
Nicely done Cindy … you have not given up and you are forging ahead. Well done CupCake, I like it. 😉May 13, 2021 at 10:58 pm #57963
Hi Cindy, the toast was a freebie tube from the web which was easily downloaded. Just type into a google search for images – slice of toast png transparent – and it should come up with loads of images. These days you can do that for most tubes that you want. I got my certificate in tubing about 10 to 15 years ago but it was a fair bit of work to make ‘clean’ tubes so if someone else is happy to do it for you free of charge then I am happy to go with that! 😉May 13, 2021 at 11:06 pm #57964
Yeah Sue, I think most coots of the world have very similar feet … they always amuse me and that was such a perfect photo I simply had to use it. Ah … droughts can be especially devastating for wildlife. It would appear that we are heading that way again. North Queensland has been nearly washed away with rain but here in the Wide Bay area we have had very little. It is not even the end of Autumn and already the grass is browning off and pretty soon out backyards will be akin to dust bowls. That is the way of it and I should imagine it would be the same for you in Canada. Climate change is really taking a hold. 🙂May 13, 2021 at 11:22 pm #57966Sue ThomasParticipant
Annie, here a shot of one from 2017May 14, 2021 at 3:18 am #57971
Terrific photo Sue, and yes, those are the tootsies, lol!May 14, 2021 at 3:19 am #57973
A little bit of a different take. Thanks for takin a peek my friends. ;DMay 14, 2021 at 4:57 am #57974
Cindy: That looks very nice! I like the way you used a curved photo; it really stands out. You did a fine job filling in the font for the title with all your glitter papers. Way to go!!

Annie, yes, let me know the outcome! I like to watch a YouTube channel called Pasta Grannies, created by Vicky Bennison, an English woman. She films “grannies” in Italy, who still make pasta by hand… some are 100 years old!
Lovely new layout!May 14, 2021 at 8:59 am #57980CristinaParticipant
Cindy, great to see you here again too. Nice layout!May 14, 2021 at 10:50 am #57985
Here is Day 5, the Adventure project. I did an homage to our farming area, the Black Dirt of Pine Island, NY, where 1/3 of the total of onions for the nation are grown. The literally “black” soil is amazingly fertile, left by a passing glacier as bogs which have been channeled and drained for farming. There are many different vegetables grown and even sod grass but the onions are world class.
The fonts for the title are Farm House Full and Farm House Shadow. I found the onions and the crate on Google image search. The photos show how the weather can change in an instant out on our “flatlands.”May 14, 2021 at 12:48 pm #57987
I hope I am getting better. The photo is from a trip to Puerto Vallarta in 2019. Some of the elements are from Elfairyscrap.com.May 14, 2021 at 6:57 pm #57996
Love You all Love this Campus,

Ann, Annie thank you
I need a list that tells you where things what files go in directorys and short cut keys Anyone Please. I d/l a ebook from amazon paid for it but never could figure out how to get it or see 🙁 I keep meaning to write our Teacher but forget.
I love tubes thank you Annie ill go search that “slice of toast png transparent”May 14, 2021 at 9:14 pm #58008
Thanks for that tip dear Cristina. My sister and I will have a watch and learn session. 😀May 14, 2021 at 9:19 pm #58009
A lovely page Ann and thanks for the information … always good to know these things. I am really pleased you got to use that gorgeous photo, showcased beautifully here. That soil must be really fertile to grow such wonderful onions … and, I do love onions! ;DMay 14, 2021 at 9:21 pm #58010
You are doing very well Joe as this lovely page shows. Well done my friend. 🙂May 14, 2021 at 9:31 pm #58011
Very well done Cindy and I see you have lots of onion on there … gotta love onions. The crackers, watermelon and flower look lovely. Well done my friend.
As for the extensions etcetera this link to Cassel’s tut should help. https://scrapbookcampus.com/2016/07/which-files-do-you-need-to-export-in-psp/
Also, when you download an ebook it should come in html format. You just need to click on it and it will open in your browser.
I hope this helps you dear Cindy.May 14, 2021 at 10:52 pm #58013CasselKeymaster
Annie, the use of those custom confetti is making everything so consistent!
Cindy, that is a nice photo to showcase! I think you went a little heavy on the shadows on that layout. Although it could work on the individual hearts, as they could be thick elements, it would not fit as well for the vertical paper and the confetti. A little trick for the hearts that are exactly of the same color as the background: vary the brightness a tiny bit, just so they show an obvious distinction where there is no shadow, from the background. For your shortcuts question, check out this blog post.
Ann, for your award ribbon, I would suggest you try to make a larger shadow. Although a paper element would usually have a small shadow, your element is sitting on a thick frame, so its shadow should reflect that.
Joe, that “Seas the day” layout makes me feel like going to the beach! I see that the shadow on the anchor seems to be going to the top left, instead of the bottom right, like the other shadows on your project. Do you see the same thing on the original version?
Where is everyone? Only Joe has posted among the dozens of newcomers who registered for the Bootcamp. Are we scary for newcomers?May 15, 2021 at 1:24 am #58014
As a person who would know Fear,
No you all are Awesome, Nothing to fear here.
Teacher thank you for the codes link. I bought a ebook on amazon but never can get it to work 🙁 still tried a hour can still cant just now. giving up till tomorrow. LOL bought it from you Amazon in jan still trying, but got the link you sent me tonight thank you.
This is a friendly place full of Artists, cant wait till I get good Hope i do lolMay 15, 2021 at 7:50 am #58015
Cassel – I was trying to make the anchor look like it was branded into the paper rather than sitting on the paper, so I used cutout rather than drop shadow. Is there a better way of doing this?May 15, 2021 at 10:33 am #58017CasselKeymaster
Joe, then my comment is probably inaccurate and due to the resized dimension. If you want it branded in the paper, you have the correct approach. Maybe have it a little more blurred? But again, it might be great at full size but losing its effect at 600 pixels. But that is totally ok.May 16, 2021 at 12:06 am #58030
My first take on the Adventure project. Papers are the result of using overlays by Brooke Gazarek from Pixel Scrappers. The birdies tubes is by Graph Sabine Designs and the flower is by an Oriental person whose name I could not begin to understand. Photo of the Gouldian Finches courtesy of Australian Geographic. Font is Missed Your Exit. Thanks for takin a peek. 😉May 16, 2021 at 1:11 am #58032
Here is a ‘different’ take on the Adventure project. I am a very keen admirer of Steampunk and have many tubes relating to the theme. This darling little steampunk kitty is by Kajenna from Pics For Design. Background paper is my own and the elements and papers used are from Steampink which is a kit from Dees’Sign Depot. Font is Fabulous Steampunk. Thanks for takin a peek my friends. 😉May 16, 2021 at 7:41 am #58034May 16, 2021 at 10:12 am #58041
Here’s my take on the Friendship project: The background is a black and white photo of the dandelion seedhead. I created the striped paper with a selection from all 3 photos. (I also went ahead and made a plaid. lol) The bees on the flowers are stamps so they don’t have much depth.May 16, 2021 at 2:10 pm #58073
