            I had not planned to do a card like this but when I saw this photo on FaceBook, I couldn’t resist. If I add, place, date and time it could be an invitation to play pickleball.

              I am very happy to see everyone posting, and I hope to see even more posts.

              Welcome to our regulars: Susan E, Corrie, Ann, Bonnie, Marie-Claire, Donna S, Sue, Anita, Cristina, Michele, Jnet, Linda, Sharla, Kasany, Trish, Susan C, Dawn, Suzy, Monique, Nancy, Deana, Harmony, Lynda, Cindy H, Nana, Lyn, Hank, Louyse, Mary, Leslie, Gerry.

              A special welcome to new posters: Donna, Roni, Cindy S, John.

              Jnet (#86435), beautiful photo. Yes, we will be getting snow soon enough!

              Hank (#86443), I see you turned the rectangle template to a square card. That is great example of customization.

              Sharla (#86445), such a delicate card. Good work.

              Suzy (#86448), nice idea to use the striped paper. It makes it pop!

              Louyse (#86451), such fun elements used to decorate your card.

              Ann (#86455), although my brain is uneasy to see shadows on the “other side”, it certainly makes total sense with the photo you are showcasing.

              Mary (#86458), I am glad to see that you are creating a different card than the theme I used. Each card will have a different theme in the tutorials, so we should also see a wide variety of cards in the next few days.

              Leslie (#86462), such a clever idea! A card can be turned into a business card or an ID tag. Let us know how the event goes!

              Cindy (#86463), great!!! You are doing so well with your PSP and your projects.

              Gerry (#86465), Creative Fabrica certainly has a lot of cute designs to choose from! And it is nicely showcased.

              Donna (#86467) that gradient paper definitely helps showcase those other decorations. Great work.

              Corrie (#86469), another great example of customization. The same template can be flipped to get something that looks different.

              Dawn (#86471), that is a beautiful image. And I am happy to see this template used for a different theme than the Christmas card that I used.

               Trish (#86473), did you blend in multiple images or what the picture like that? It looks great.

              Bonnie (#86479), I have a feeling one of your pickleball friends will get a surprise card in the near future!

              Keep them coming. Don’t be shy.

              Remember that you can add your projects in the gallery too. The gallery will become a central location to browse and get inspired.

                    Card 1 4×6 size.  Used the same font as tutorial – Hestia Austine (Creative Fabrica), snowflake by Sheila Reid (DigitalScrapbook.com) and photo is mine.  really enjoyed the tutorial.

                    Not sure how to upload two images from the gallery into one post so I’m doing two.  Now I get to go look at all the cool cards!

                      Here is my Card 1 and I picked Christmas as the theme.. The font is Bianca Romantic from Creative Fabrica, the element is from Marisa Lerin at Digital Scrapbooking. I reduced the opacity on the picture  to 81 and used the tip from Carol about the leader option in the text tool menu. That really helped with the line spacing. Thank you Carole. This was a lot of fun to do. I enjoy looking at the beautiful cards here. You are all so talented.

                        This is my first complete project since joining and half heartedly doing the workbooks, I mostly use PSP for enhancing and fixing old worn out photos starting from 1927 until this year of over 7,000 photos. I’ve been working on these for ten years or more.

                        I did want to do more with PSP and so started these classes to help me improve in all aspects of the program, which, by the way I started using from the very first version back in the ’70’s when the original company (Jasc, I think) created it and have stuck with it.

                            My goodness, I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the cards. It’s wonderful how there are so many different interpretations.

                              A simple , no fuss card, used Carole’s gimp tube, and waved it.  Text slightly rotated, after adding text on a curve.  I replaced the  border, with one of my own.  Extracted the bird,  placed it on a plain background, added snowflakes, and snow, to finish I added some noise to the border, and the background paper.

                              I uploaded my first page yesterday in the gallery, in the appropriate  section. I assumed it would be automatically added to the forum, it would seem not.

                              There isn’t anything to add to Michele’s comment

                                You’d swear I’m a newbie in the campus, but I’m not.  I’m baffled on how to  add a page directly onto forum.  Displaying a much larger image.

                                  Sue: Well, this Gallery thingy is new for all of us! LOL Here’s Carole’s instructions for posting an image from the Gallery into the Forum. I keep it handy myself as it’s not a habit yet.

                                    Thanks Ann.  I know  I was away for quite some time, but many changes.  All for the better I may add.

                                          This is a great class.  I’m not going to be posting much but I wanted to mention two things that help me.  I don’t have a great printer so I avoid have blocks of solid colors.  I can’t afford a new printer so I adjust to what I have and it works well enough but it does mean sometimes have to accept a white background, which I’m fine with.  But I suggest looking at your card and judging if your printer is providing the quality is good enough for your color scheme.  I cannot, for example, print in large areas of black because I end up with streaking. I don’t care for my day-to-day prints, but I want celebration cards to look a little nicer.  I buy card stock that is scored down the center so I don’t have to worry about figuring out where the middle fold goes.  I’m lazy that way. Some of the stock has a slight blush of color or texture would keeps it from looking too stark.

                                          One thing I do on my cards (and I do very few these days) is  I add a little graphic and indicate the year and occasion, or the date, because sometimes people keep the card and like that added touch.  As I said, I don’t do many cards or graphics these days so it’s more something I did in the past than I do now.

                                          Thank you for all the good information.  I forget some of these “tricks” to make ribbons, scallops, etc. so I am happy to see how you create the effect.

                                            This is a second post of Greeting Card 1. Images are mostly from Pixabay. Great class. Iam learning a lot.

                                                LOL, Cindy!  That’s how I feel too!

                                                Dianne, I wanted to comment on your printer observation – and thank you for reminding me!  I have had many, many printers in my time, and I haven’t had a one that printed blocks of color well reliably.  And your little graphic is adorable and a special fillip.

                                                All, I am so impressed – you have outdone yourselves and it shows! I would be happy to mail out any of these cards!

                                                              Day 1  The photo was from a 6″ snowfall a couple of days ago. This was snow on top of a fence post, then I shopped it to give it the Christmas colors.

                                                                Great entries by all, it is a pleasure to browse through them!

                                                                Here is my day 2 and I stick to christmas cards, although I can imagine the little squares filled with flowers for a birthday card and I will certainly make some too. As I don’t have enough winterphotos with snow I decided to use christmas elements from my stash and gave the squares a very small border to let them stand out a bit better. The font is Christmas Holland, very appropriate as my text is in Dutch. I made the back as well, but Carole said to upload just the front.
