      Linda, #87023, what a great explanation for the bleed. I know wee bit (like a Barbie sized thimble amount-haha) about bleed, but not much experience with it.  I actually work at a newspaper web press (much different than offset press and the new fangled digital wonders they have now; would be cool to work in a place like that).  We have a stitching machine that does cut 3 sides and I see what the purpose of the bleed/registration marks etc are.  Especially because when the signatures come off the web press they have a lap which has to be cut off.  Isnt paper/bookbinding/cardmaking/printing really interesting.  Or is it just me.  Lucky you got to work that closely in the industry.  Would have been my dream job back then.  I was either working on horse breeding farms or in photofinishing back when I should have follow my love for paper.

          Susan, I spent my time on the ‘drawing board’ side of the fence. I wish I had more opportunity to be in the printshop and see how it all worked! I did try to see as many of the finished print jobs as I could, but often they were getting shipped to the client, and I was chained to my drawing board. It might be a month later when we would get some print copies. Unless the client was unhappy with the job, then we would hear about it sooner 🙁

              Suzy (#86965), the reason I was not using the Open as Layer script is simply that not everyone has it. I also often need to resize if an image is MUCH too large as the handles of the Pick tool are way out. You have quite a list of new tips you learned. Wow! that, in a simple 7-day workshop! (#87026) Are you referring to the oval in the template not being pixelated? Because I created it with a vector shape, which is not pixellated like a selection.

              Shirley (#86967), those paw prints are nicely aligned correctly. Good work.

              Susan (#86968), you can print that card and send it inside other cards you send to relatives! (#87019), the simplest way to get text to look like it is printed on the texture is to use Blend modes. Also, check the store newsletter tomorrow (hint, hint). (#87020), for printing, only what is inside the canvas will be considered.

              James (#86970), great idea to add the photo. She is a cutie.

              Monique (#86971), when you are unsure about shadows, play around. Sometimes, if you reduce the opacity, it makes the shadow more subtle and gives a different effect. We tend to adjust the offset, but the opacity can also be tweaked.

              Sue (#86974), I was considering a whole class on tags for December, but it won’t be for this year. I have other projects in mind. Maybe next year? Or maybe not for the holidays at all? (#87001) How could we have guessed that you would do some wordart for the inside??

              Sharla (#86976), great idea to have a card for that occasion. Although I provide seven themes for the cards in this workshop, I have not counted how many different themes we have had so far!

              Ann (#86980), that ribbon turned out great! And congratulations!

              Lyn (#86997), you tweaked the template with circles instead of squares behind the flowers. Amazing how a little tweak makes a card look so different.

              Kasany (#87003), since your font is already quite ornate, have you considered lowering the opacity and increasing the blur of the shadow? It would make it easier to read, I think.

              Sharon (#87004), that site is such a great resource, isn’t it? And you are definitely allowed to share a link to resources for others. A lot of participants love to know where they can get this element or that font. Just beware that sometimes, the system does not like links and if it has hiccups, the post will “disappear”. If that ever happens, drop me a message and I’ll pull it out of the “pending” folder.

              Marie-Claire (#87006), using that tongue for a color is not something I would have thought of, and it is perfectly matching the whole photo too!

              Lois (#87012), I am a little puzzled why the ribbon shows through/over your little baby. Is the clipart translucent? If so, you might want to erase the ribbon where the clipart is so it does not distract from the faces.

              Sheila (#87014), great work in interlacing the lights with the frame. You used the interlacing technique, didn’t you?

              Corrie (#87016), although all those cards CAN be printed, I am not expecting everyone to do so. It does make for interesting tutorials in case you need them later.

              Nancy (#87017), I agree that those images are perfect for that card.

              Louyse (#87022), that photo is cute!!!!

              Trish (#87025), it is totally understandable that you have to hide her face to respect her privacy if she asked you to. But I am sure she will like the original without the blur. I am not sure where the image would go when you do Shift-Enter because in the keyboard map, there is nothing associated with that key combination.

              Bonnie (#87028), even without a pickleball image, there is still a hint! You are probably going to be the one source for the most pickleball-related greeting cards!

              Tomorrow will be the last tutorial. Are you ready?

                Here is my Card 4. I selected Mr.Mooch to be the Star.  The heart scatters and doodle are from Digital Scrapbooking and Pin Interest. The Font is Hesthia Austine from Creative Fabrica, the cutout is from Carole’s store. I love those brushes. It was fun learning how to create a  diamond pattern. Thank you Carole!d-4-Valentine-scaledsCard-4-Valentine-scaled

                    Susan & Linda: While we’re chatting about print-work experience I’d like to join in as I spent many years working in either the shop or advertising departments of two different newspapers. I still have the “roar” of the presses soothing me to sleep at night! ( 😉 ) Here’s a layout I did awhile back about my experience with papers.

                      Card 6.  I agree with Suzy, that warp brush can get away on you.  Carole is right, tiny movements are needed.  I added some texture to the white background as it seemed really flat without it.  this size might now show.  I used the supplies from the tutorial as well as the font.  This was really interesting to see how it made for folding.  I saw Stephan (in the gallery) also added text to the back, I like that idea.  Carole, you really packed a lot of information into these videos, thank you.  I’m glad to see the Hue Map used again.  Last time I saw a tutorial (on the Hue Map) I was lost, this time it made more sense to me.  Photo is mine.

                        Carole, I forgot to say I interlaced the lights, such a fantastic technique. Thank you for teaching us how to do it.

                              Woww some nice additions were made during my two day absence!

                              Carole, thanks for the template and the note about my work. I kept the same size as the other cards to make this card. I was able to get my Wi-Fi yesterday when I arrived. I am very happy because I am almost finished at the same time as many others.

                              I didn’t notice but I think I remember that it was Shirly who had shingles, my heart goes out to you knowing how painful it is!

                                Day 7. I made a card (front and back) for a Christmas invitation, but with other colors and flowers it could be for any other occasion. I used the tamplate and the lace changed to white. Creative Fabrica had very nice papers with blue christmas ornaments as a freebie. On the back is my special christmas logo which I did 2 years ago. On my own cards there is always my logo. The font is The Mainsthen. On the inside come the details of the eventand I don’t know yet if I will make an insert or print directly on the card, that depends on the paper I’ll use. The envelop I probably will do tomorrow because there is something on the telly I want to watch and afterwards it’s bedtime for me.

                                Carole I loved this workshop and the templates will be used for many cards to come which will have another theme and probably my flowerphotos. Thank you so much for all of this and all the work you are putting in. I’ll look forward to the blackfriday sale and the christmas countdown!!!

                                  Don’t love this one, either, but if I take out the daffodil, added “thank you”, or “Get Well Soon”, I could make it into a Quick Page card.

                                  Monique, that’s a lovely sentiment and a great photo to go with it! Just brilliant!

                                  …..and Corrie, that’s a wonderful idea. I already have my Christmas cards for this year, but that doesn’t mean I might not have something coming up requiring an invitation! In any case it’s beautiful.

                                  I had an old friend, now deceased, who sent out Groundhog Day cards EVERY SINGLE YEAR! For decades! She said she wasn’t keeping up with people’s sex lives or their religious affiliations, and figured Ground Hog Day was as non-denominational and non-invasive as anything . LOL!  (I always thought she missed the boat because thanksgiving is a much more card-worthy event and gratitude and thanks are also non-invasive and non-denominational.)

                                      A simple card this time. Font is Sylfaen, the photo I had in my stash. I won’t use the envelope part of this workshop, because I have a scoreboard which helps you to make an envelope, but it’s nice to have a lesson how to make one when needed.

                                      Loved this workshop, nice to re-discover some of the techniques 🙂

                                        Day 6 =  I used a photo I took of my car last week when we got 7 inches of snow.  Just a dusting was predicted. I am not always a good housekeeper but I know I have never had 7 inches of “dust”.

                                          Anne, hahaha, love your card about the snow.  Our “dusting” was only 4″ about 3 weeks ago, the worst is knowing it will be there until May!

                                          Corrie, absolutely beautiful card 7.  Great idea to angle the Text, it looks great that way.

                                          I used the font and supplies given.  Wow that envelope is COOL!  I measured badly with the selections and the magic wand sure picked up on it.  I will work on it again.  I never get the selection started quite where I want it.  The photo is mine.

                                          Carole, this was a fantastic workshop.  so many variations taught with tecniques I will use over and over.  And I will use the templates over and over too.  Thank you for the time and effort you put into these workshops.  They always far exceed my expectations.

                                            I got a little behind. Too many hockey games and chasing around the last few days. So I dived right into Day 6 and loved it. Now I have a few ways to make foldable cards. The wonders of PSP and of Carole’s teaching!

                                            Now if I could get my guides to behave so I can more closely have things centered in the quarters.Greeting Card 6

                                              Ann, I love it!  And yes, when I get home, especially if it’s late (I used to work until 1:30 or 2:30 am) I still hear the machines running (press/tie-line and the inserting machine).  Our press is just over 10 years old now, as is the inserting machine (alphaliner) that I mostly work on these days. Both by Mueller Martini (spelling?), a name you probably recognize.  I wasnt there when it was put in, but I heard stories that the German guys that came to install it made sure the fridges were fully stocked with beer!  You did some really interesting jobs at the paper; I’m just in the warehouse…I’m strong…not smart. 😊

                                                Monique, is your score-board called “Scor-It”?  I have two of them and they are great.  And, I have about 10 bone-folders, I couldnt live without them.  I make sure they are in various locations so I dont have to go hunting for them.

                                                    Here is my version of an envelope ,   I must admit I would need to be hard up, to make one of these again, the layers kept floating , I had trouble cutting it to shape, perhaps there is a simpler method than I used, I dont like using all those nodes, so avoid them,  it didnt help with the programme keep freezing, 2022 has been a nightmare to me. I dont know whether to try 2023 or go back to 2021 has anyone any feed back on 2023

                                                        Trish (#87079), Carole has been telling us of problems with 2023. Corel is working to correct them but who know when their efforts will be completed/successful? My 2022 is a bit glitchy but nothing too bad.

                                                        Here is my day 7. I didn’t try the envelope as I plan to use my cards digitally. I probabaly should try it so I can overcome obstacles before I need an envelope.

                                                          My card for Day 2 was exactly by the tutorial. I returned and created a pickleball themed card…and I already have an idea for another card!

I have learned some amazing things from this workshop. The cards submitted by others have been an inspiration.

                                                              Card number 7. I used an image from Pixabay. For the lace ribbon, I used a very old tut to make lace using a font called Ruritania and interlaced a ribbon strip. I added some texture to the background and strip elements. The font writing was one called Candara. I did not do an envelope as in real time I have an envelope board for any cards I make but it was useful to see the process of devising one in PSP.
