I’m sort of new here — and sort of really, really old here. 🙂 I use PSP and Cassel’s scripts, just not for scrap booking, so I’m not around much, but I want to tell you all about her newest script, Word Frame 5!
I had asked her to make it for me so I could use the script as captions in some daffodil newsletters I edit. So the name of the collection would be in the frame – they would all be the same, and my newsletters would look awesome. Readers would think I’m a super star, not realizing Cassel did all the work. See?
The second pic was just for fun. There are more on Facebook, but there are multiple choices in her script — text on the side, top (as shown) and bottom, thick frame, thin frame, with a rounded corner, or not…I can’t think of all the choices, but take some time to think about the font you want to use….
The last pic shows what we in the daffodil world consider a serious thing — the Awards Table, yet the babyish Garden dingbat I used didn’t really show what I wanted it to show — so I will redo it and use that frame for something else because it’s adorable just mot for that pic. so font choice is important!

Suzy, you might be new HERE but you are a veteran in the store!!!
Great samples you are showing!May 28, 2022 at 12:02 am #77287Susan EwartParticipant
Thank you Suzy! Those are beautiful layouts. I am fairly new with PSP, just over a year. I love that script and will have to take a look in the store for it. This would be great for covers for layouts in the workshops we do and well, pretty much any type of themed layout grouping.May 30, 2022 at 11:58 am #77347
Suzy, this script is great and, I think, a big hit in the store. Thanks to you, all of us will benefit!May 30, 2022 at 12:06 pm #77349Susan EwartParticipant
I agree Cristina. It’s so easy to use as well, so a newbie gets a winning outcome right away.May 30, 2022 at 12:09 pm #77350
Yes, this script has been a big hit this week so far.
I am thinking that maybe I should have a new section in the forum for store products as many visitors here might be interested in seeing what is available in the store, and mostly, how they can be used in their projects. What do you think?May 30, 2022 at 12:19 pm #77353
I think it’s a great idea… Here is a great place to advertise what the store has and, at the same time, a source of inspiration for everyone who buys it.May 30, 2022 at 12:51 pm #77357
OK, I added one section under the Showcase area, HERE.
I will move this thread there, in a bit.
In order to help other viewers, we can have a separate thread for separate products.May 30, 2022 at 1:20 pm #77358
Edited to add Note: It took me so long to type this out, Cassel had posted before me!
I had trouble logging to respond to the comments — I think I have it set now, but only on my big desktop computer.
Yes, I am an old veteran with PSP in general, my first version was JASC freeware, and all I ever did with it was open photos with about any file extension, even ones I had never heard of. The program would open anything! So many years using it, and yet I doubt I know 1/20 of what you know, Cassel!
Yes! Cassel, if you would set up a main tab, we can add products and samples as we use them, or as we find them (on our hard drives). Posters should be sure to link to the product because the store search by name will yield lots of choices. I have examples of about one-third of the scripts in the store because, well, they’re fun. and it’s fun to see how far you can stretch them beyond the obvious. As Susan already noted, you don’t need any serious expertise, and in fact you don’t even need to use full concentration. I also have a lot of fonts, and I like seeing them in circles and other shapes and determine their legibility, but I really don’t like setting text paths and/or working too hard, LOL! (I am a gardener, not a computer person. It just so happens I am more of a computer person than most of my fellow daffodil gardeners!)
Christina, I agree – more sales, but also a heads up to users on the value of less glamorous scripts. Some of my absolute must-have scripts are ones you might never give a second look at, so I would probably start with those.
I prefer this to facebook I think.

Suzy, if you feel like it, you could share your lovely work with us.
We have a friendly community here that supports and encourages each other. Take a look at the “What are you working on” thread. Every month a new thread.
We are all here learning from Carole!May 31, 2022 at 9:12 am #77379
Here is the ‘Word Frame 5’ from my website. LB2-008 has a worn texture added to the frame so ‘Copper It’ can pick up some variation. LB2-009 is a straight ‘Brushed Metal 1’ with gold (this picture incidentally has been modified with ‘Pencil Sketch’).
That was nice enough but noticing the gap between the words and the frame’s bar made me think of threading a ribbon through it. I erased the bar so it looked like it was underneath, then I lightened the area on the ribbon above the frame’s bar.
The ribbon, from Ribbon Factory, had Frayed Edge applied to it (the fraying had to be erased from top and bottom).
It may well work nicely with some vines or lace woven underneath.

Nice ideas we have here. I guess we’ll have even more activities in this forum and more inspiration!
I am happy to see Suzy in the forum. She has been a store customer from the first month it opened (her first invoice in the store was #24!) and a quiet member of the Campus since before the membership opened!
Welcome!May 31, 2022 at 11:30 am #77382Ann SeeberParticipant
Trying out Word Frame 5, I decided to go with a series of birds that the app Merlin has identified for me by their birdsong while I’m out in my yard. This has enlarged my list of local birds. I saw a pair of these swooping around in my front yard yesterday and Merlin ID’d them as Chimney Swifts. New for me! The photo is from Merlin. I extracted the bird and gave it a Negative image and the resulting white birds are at the top. I used the script but was unhappy with being unable to control the text, so I added my own. The font is Foglihten No 7. I have several new birds now to practice with!May 31, 2022 at 12:53 pm #77386liberaParticipant
Obviously –thanks to Suzy– Word Frame 5 became already something like a hit 🙂 I discovered it on sunday and bought the script immediately after…
… and as I can see very inspiring, looking at all the creations till now!
Is #24 a preset?May 31, 2022 at 2:27 pm #77391
Brian! That’s amazing, and it all goes together so well! The colors, the styles, the font — it’s just perfect! I never would have thought about weaving anything with the text. I think you should move those examples to the new “showcase thread” https://scrapbookcampus.com/Community/forums/showroom/store-supplies/. Each element posted separately under the name of the script. I had never even heard of Copper It! And I wouldn’t have expected the results you were able to get, and same with Brushed Metal 1.
Ann, it was smart to just leave the spaces open…no way you could get all that text in! But it makes a nice frame for all that information, doesn’t it? And the little Chimney Swifts at the top are inspired (educational as well as beautiful since they show the silhouette in flight). I went to the Merlin website. I’m going to get the app as soon as I find my phone. (I have a house phone, so the mobile doesn’t get the respect it deserves here. For that reason (that it’s not joined to my body as another appendage) I’m a little worried about accidentally leaving it out in the garden. It would be a few days before I even missed it. I think I have an alarm on it, but that only works as long as it has power…but I’m going to man up, take responsibility, and try to identify some of these bird calls. And owl calls, er, hoots.
Libera, Cassel meant I was invoice 24 in the store, so her 24th order (and 30th, and a few more) was to me. So, not her very first sale, buy early on.
That’s all from me. I am on house cleaning duty this afternoon. :((

Love what you did, Suzy. Hope to see more of your work. I’m not a scrapbooker, but I share what I do in the What Are You Working On thread.
Brian, great idea to thread that ribbon!
Wow, Ann. I don’t think I have many different birds where I live, but I love listening to them in the spring.June 8, 2022 at 7:15 am #77659
In this website decoration Word Frame 5 is used to frame a postcard TWICE! The two frames fitted together and merged. A US flag was then opened, used as a pattern at 45 degrees and 3D’d.
Also Date stamp and Stamp scripts used to the right

This website decoration features Word Frame 5. The frame of the picture was created in Word Frame 5 and then the Stone script was applied to the frame as befits its stone-age relevance.June 8, 2022 at 12:45 pm #77712
Hey Brian, looks great!! We are cousins! (R1B cousins!). 😂 Sorry had to edit. The split migration path of mine is different from yours.

R1B is a very big haplogroup. More detailed results should equal a more accurate path. Mine probably took two steps backward for every step forward! and no doubt a stop-off at the local hostelry!
