Our newest challenge will soon start. Are you in?
Who will be your “loved one” that will be featured in your Love story pages?
The registration is officially open and the challenge itself will start on February 8h, so there is plenty of time for you to find your photos and invite friends to join.
And this challenge will be FREE for everyone, so spread the word.
Did you find this thread before the registration page? Here it is.
(and yes, it is the same series of tutorials, but I’ll try to find more supplies)February 3, 2021 at 1:34 am #52424Lynn Young
The second round, trying again to get all the way through without being hit by a foul ball.February 3, 2021 at 3:21 am #52426CristinaParticipant
I also have participated in previous Love Story Challenges… I like it because it is about masks, which is a way for me to improve and feel more comfortable working with them.February 3, 2021 at 5:00 am #52430
Masks? Oh, good! I need more practice with them and I’ve seen examples of how awesome they can make a layout.
Speaking of snow: we got about 32″ which is a record for us going back to the 1960s!February 3, 2021 at 11:15 am #52432
Wow, 32 inches! In one shot?

Lynda: Staring Monday and in fits and starts that never really stopped until today (Wed morning). It’s pretty spectacular here!February 3, 2021 at 2:22 pm #52443Corrie KinkelParticipant
This is the first time I participate in this challenge. It’s about masks and that will be very useful, because I like masks very much and try to use them with more or less succes. I think I will center it about a hobby because my loved ones have explicitly asked (read forbidden) me to use pictures of them! I know I can blur their faces but I don’t like that; it ruins a hopefully nice LO, at least in my opinion. If I make one with the grandchildren in it – which I love and sometimes do – I have to keep it private and cann’t post it here or on facebook. See you soon!February 3, 2021 at 6:25 pm #52452
We have around 15 or 20 inches….starts and stops also. Nothing today but it’s pretty cold. No photos because my husband keeps the snowblower going so it doesn’t get out of hand and our city is pretty diligent as far as keeping the streets plowed. 4:30 AM and they are there.. We were looking at photos from another snow storm and it looks pretty much like yours. Cars were snowed in. Yea, snow day! I was driving the school bus at that time so it was 8 plus years ago. With retirement we are usually in Arizona or some other warm place. Covid kept us home this year.
I hope you are having some fun in the snow. I loved it when the kids were home and younger. It was play time for us.
Don’t know where the years go.February 4, 2021 at 5:21 pm #52468Cathy AndersonParticipant
I look with envy at the beautiful photos of your snowy winter days. Where we live in New Zealand it is a temperate climate so only rain and an occasional frost. I completed the Bootcamp last year and am looking forward to tackling another series of tutorials.February 5, 2021 at 10:04 pm #52505Annie TobinParticipant
Hi Scrapbook Campers. I participated in this challenge in 2019 but not last year … not sure why. I am looking forward to it this time around because I want to cement my knowledge of masks … one of my favourite ways to display in PSP. 😀February 7, 2021 at 6:21 pm #52627
I’m ready to give this challenge a tryFebruary 8, 2021 at 7:26 am #52654
I too am ready. I have already done it, I like the exchanges that take place throughout the challenge.February 8, 2021 at 12:41 pm #52656MinkaParticipant
Nobody specified what your LOVE had to be about. Mine is being on the sea. 🙂 Well, actually … anywhere on a boat. Preferably not dry dock or the storage yard! LOLFebruary 8, 2021 at 1:15 pm #52658
We are in another deep freeze, -37c with a wind chill of -52c, with blowing snow across the landscape. Needless to say the school busses are not running. I failed to locate and download the template, so I used a photoshop template from a previous challenge. I used a heart font for the heart butterflies.February 8, 2021 at 1:28 pm #52660
Very nice Minka, I can’t wait to get out on the water with my kayak. At the moment the lake is frozen, 18 inches thick. We can now drive across it.February 8, 2021 at 2:09 pm #52661February 8, 2021 at 2:21 pm #52665

Carole, can you give me the parameters to save in jpg with compression? I touched on that yesterday and there I see that my page does not come out as on my computer

Sorry, as soon as I edit my post it comes out with lots of codesFebruary 8, 2021 at 3:14 pm #52668Alicia GarbelmanParticipant
Hello, everyone. This year I’ll be creating my Love Story about my new grandson – he’s almost six months old. Finding pictures won’t be a problem, but choosing from among them might be 🙂February 8, 2021 at 4:53 pm #52673
I know it doesn’t look like it but I did follow the tutorial but then went off trail and got this. Changing the original template to be used as a mask etc was enlightening.February 8, 2021 at 4:57 pm #52674MinkaParticipant
Wow .. Sue. I think you will have to wait a while before breaking out that kayak! A long while! That’s cold!February 8, 2021 at 5:06 pm #52676
I love your day one. Old photos are the best.
LyndaFebruary 8, 2021 at 5:07 pm #52677
Everyone is doing great <3February 8, 2021 at 6:02 pm #52680
Thank you! I love family history and especially the old photos. Great job everyone.February 8, 2021 at 6:32 pm #52682
I struggled with the masks on the small photos. And when I added a background paper, it ended up on top of the lower left photo?? I ended up copying and pasting the photo over the top.. As you can see I copied Carole’s layout for our new great grandson.February 8, 2021 at 6:47 pm #52683
Minka, you are correct: you can showcase anyone or anything you love!
Sue, what was the issue with the template of the day?\
Jennifer, that will be a great tribute if you continue on this theme! Do you notice the hard edges on the left and right of the larger photo? If you use a soft eraser tip, you can soften that edge a little if you want.
Jnet, you chose a similar theme as mine! 🙂 To answer your question, if you want to save for printing, you will likely want as little compression as possible but that will make a large file. If it is only for viewing online, on a monitor, a compression value of 20 will usually not even show much compression.
Lynda, how did you modify the original template to end up with that heart shape? Was it still a mask just like the original?
Ann, if your background paper appeared on top of the photo, it might just be a layering issue in the Layers palette. Did you see where that paper ended up? Was it “stuck” inside the mask group? If so, you can just click it, and drag the layer below. But you will have other pages to practice!February 8, 2021 at 7:02 pm #52686Anne Lamp
I tried to use only use only the stuff from the links Cassel posted. This was a nice challenge & I learned a couple of new things.February 8, 2021 at 7:50 pm #52687
Carole, I don’t have Dropbox, so I tried to download it, I found the preview of the template, but no download button, Perhaps I had to sign up, which I didn’t do. If possible would you be able to send it me via email, if not it’s OK. I downloaded the previous ones from the very first love story challenge. I’ve had a new laptop since.February 8, 2021 at 7:54 pm #52688
Sue, if it is in French, it is the word Télécharger, and it is on top right. And no, you don’t need an account to download from Dropbox. Maybe give it a try again?February 8, 2021 at 8:19 pm #52689
Carole, I retrieved the files from dropbox, but they were the templates from 2016 challenge. Which I have. I will have to download winzip7 in order to open the files from the French site.
