here are the besties again. i am going to actually try to do a whole scrap book of just those two and their adventures for a christmas gift. but instead of printing them my brother gave me an idea of getting a photo frame that rotates the photos so i will give that a try. i just have to find that perfect scrap kit lol with lots of different papers and elements so each page will be different but the whole theme blends together.September 25, 2020 at 1:29 pm #47612
My final project has been a disaster from start to finish 🙁 my pc keeps either freezing completely or takes forever to open any tools and I have cleared the cache and rebooted several times. I also had an idea of how I wanted to work it but that didn’t come together as I planned either. Tomorrow is another day so hopefully everything will fall into place then.
Cindy, I emailed you the paper templates shortly after I got your email – we are in different time zones so I am sorry you didn’t get them earlier.
Love the sisters/brothers/best friends theme!September 25, 2020 at 3:30 pm #47613Rick NeilsonParticipant
Cassel, I’m sure I’ll be sticking around. Lots of valuable tutorials throughout. Thank you.September 25, 2020 at 4:07 pm #47616cindy harrisParticipant

Thanks for the lessons!!September 25, 2020 at 10:28 pm #47632
Cindy, I am glad you managed all the projects without pulling your hair this time around. You are definitely a perseverant student and your work shows your determination.
Ann S, that is certainly a fun photo and it deserved to be showcased.
Lavada, that is a lovely layout. The flower on the dot of the I is a great choice. It is a great idea to get one of those “digital frames”.September 25, 2020 at 10:38 pm #47633cindy harrisParticipant
it cause your a good Teacher I gave up real scrapbooking after I throw at least 8– out the window. And I love it My worst times was No hair pulling out. The 20 times I reset my password on this site, Oh I wont go into my mistakes but so Thankful to being where I am, and cant wait to get better Plus I am in on the Drawings… so excited….. and the Nice Ppl here you attract good ppl.September 26, 2020 at 1:13 am #47635
My final project in this Bootcamp, thanks Carole for taking the time to put these up and for your encouragement and helpful suggestions.
Paradise Falls is a very small waterfall in a pretty area in Victoria – the photo on the left shows the fall, the background is the fall also but standing behind it. The centre background photo is the ground in front of my grand daughters ‘dabbing’ on a rock and the whitish area is the fall of the water – it disappears into the ground! The squares and font colours are taken from the images. The frame I made.
I have enjoyed taking part in this Camp and especially enjoyed the talents showcased and the stories the projects told so thanks to all for the inspiration and sharing while learning along the way.September 26, 2020 at 4:04 am #47637Jan WilsonParticipant
I had some computer troubles with folders freezing and strange things happening until I rebooted and waited so I could finish my Lesson eleven image.
I decided to use elements instead of a photo for the main focus (could not decide on a suitable photo as I take mainly birds, animals flowers or landscapes) The majority of my elements came from Creativefabrica.com who have daily freebies or great deals.
This has been fun and stirred my creative juices, thank you Carole for your tips in the tutorials. Everyone has done a great job on their lesson images, I have loved them all.September 26, 2020 at 2:06 pm #47653
Working on my last lesson, but fixed the previous one. My eye cannot see a lot of difference but here is undistorted element. I had to select/copy and paste ends on it to make it long enough without getting too big for the composition, but not distorted now.. Thanks!September 26, 2020 at 5:24 pm #47659Terry SchwarzParticipant
I went very dark on this project, used Dragan Effect on all but moon and text. Something very different for me. I used the bottom kit Cassel gave link to.
My tip is when aligning the boxes, I created both sets on 4 boxes and then selected the top and bottom box and aligned left, repeat for the remaining 3 sets of boxes. then I selected all boxes on top and then aligned to bottom then did the same for the other set of boxes. Then select all 4 boxes in a box set and then merge. This does away with using guides and manually aligning each box.September 27, 2020 at 4:00 pm #47687
Euka, it is interesting that you used the exact same layout as the sample, but in smaller to showcase a photo as a background. Very creative!
Jan, that is very creative. I would not have thought of using elements like you did, but I guess it is just that I am personally drawn to use my photos. Never think outside of that! But you did!
Ann A, yes, you managed to use that tag without distortion. It is true that sometimes, sizing for one direction does not seem to fit everything in the end. That is when you can crop, cut, or hide parts that are too big. Or sometimes, one element just ends up not being suitable for the space allowed.
Terry, it is definitely different than what we are used to see, but I am glad to see something that is completely NOT frilly. There are all kinds of options when we use digital elements, whether we find them online or we create them.
If you started late but still want to have your name in the draw, you have until tomorrow night to post at least 4 projects.September 27, 2020 at 10:09 pm #47693
I am having the same problem that Euka was having. My PSP has locked up on Day 11 project and I can not get it finished on either computer. It will not open it and I cannot even save the unfinished part to a .jpg 600. I tried cleaning the cache in Windows, not sure how to do it in the PSP program if that is an option? I rebooted several times and I tried the file on the laptop and rebooted it too, but no luck. This is a screen shot of the file in Windows Explorer as I was working on it. It was showing file size of 1.18 GB so I am pretty sure that is the problem.September 28, 2020 at 12:02 pm #47703
Well, letting the computer sleep on it (and me too, cause I was TOTALLY frustrated!) I came back and tried again, but neither computer would open the 1.18 GB file in PSP X9. ( It does not like Windows 10 at all and has always been slow and hesitant about opening tools such as Materials or selections) So I started over totally and here is my new result. I like both of them. Thank you to Eyeinspire Fruitloops for the Scrapkit.
I would like to know if there is a way to clean a cache in PSP? Also if you think the size of the file is the problem and how did it possibly get so big? This new one was only 34.4 MB and had all the same elements and papers.September 28, 2020 at 7:47 pm #47712Peter PanParticipant
Final assignment. Thank you!September 28, 2020 at 8:03 pm #47713
Ann A. it is strange that the project would be 1GB??? That is almost the size of PSP itself! Are you able to open other files? Something around 40 or even 100MB is not unheard of if you save it in .pspimage format, but 1GB, that is really odd.
Peter, good use of the technique. I hope you find other opportunities to use it!September 28, 2020 at 11:01 pm #47728
Yes, it is strange. I have to save a lot because PSP keeps shutting down in the middle of my work. That is the only reason I can think of, but the other 4 projects were all under 52 MB so not sure on the difference. Here is an image of the listing in file explorer.
And is there a cache in PSP to clean out?September 29, 2020 at 4:10 am #47732
Ann – I wonder if you made a similar mistake I just made to get such a large file – I resized a pin by % – then later when I went to resize an image I forgot to change to pixels and – it resized 600%!!! Totally froze everything and luckily I had already saved it before trying to resize.
I clear my psp cache under Preferences then select Reset Preferences BUT make sure you only have the Delete all cache files ticked.September 29, 2020 at 7:53 am #47734
Maybe that is what I did. Don’t remember for sure. and thanks for the cache file hint. I will try it. Surely couldn’t hurt.October 1, 2020 at 9:17 pm #47783Angelina Canez
I finished the Concentration project but I had a very hard time with the word wrap.
I finally got it or so I thought, I saved as a PSP 3600 pixels but, when I resized it to 600 pixels in JPEG to share. The word wrap portion disappeared. What did I do wrong? I used a round photo and frame. Even though I was comfortable with a rectangular photo and frame and sku-ing them.

I really could use a cheat sheet for all these project because I will not remember the instruction presented in the video 🙁October 1, 2020 at 9:50 pm #47787
Angelina, you are not doing anything wrong. What happens is that when you resize the image, the selection that contains the text, does not resize with it, so the selection (and the text) is still there, but likely out of bound of the image. That is a “normal” behavior. In order to avoid seeing the text disappear, you need to make a duplicate of that layer, and convert it to a raster. That layer will size down with your image.
By the way, I moved your project to the most recent Bootcamp thread since it was… more recent. If you NEED to have it in the January Bootcamp, I can still move it back. Just let me know.October 4, 2020 at 2:16 pm #47731Ken RussParticipant
I have travelled extensively throughout the outback of Australia, by road. I am hoping to be able to present this journey through scrapbooking and storytelling.
My preferences are for lighter colours in the screens and background. It helps with seeing my contrasts and shadows a bit better.
My first photo is of a place in the middle of the Northern Territory and the gateway to Arnhem land. Unfortunately, it is also a bit of a notorious place for strandings, and massive crocodile sightings. See one of the stories here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ojzUCDR6lg
The rule I have always known and followed is, if you can’t see the rocks, don’t be crossing.
