First of all, come and say HI once you register for this workshop.
We want to know who else will be there, on our side to encourage us.
Every page we will make will be different, based on each others’ photos, stories, and preferences but we can all get inspired by everyone’s projects.
Once the workshop is started, on May 16th, you can post your pages in here.
Make sure to resize your image to 600 pixels before uploading it so it won’t slow down the site when we have all those pages.
Remember that each page should not take you longer than 5 minutes to complete.
(if you missed the registration link or if you want to invite a friend to join you, HERE it is).
Who is going to be doing their FIRST digital scrapbook pages?May 14, 2022 at 5:57 pm #76636
Hi, I am ready 🙂May 15, 2022 at 1:11 am #76637
I’m here too. I’m not sure what pictures I’ll use, but I hope it will come to me when I need it to.😰May 15, 2022 at 2:59 am #76638
I’ll use different photos – the first is Rio, who had to go to the dentist. Two teeth were completely removed from it – oh, my…May 16, 2022 at 10:39 am #76665
I had this lone Chipping Sparrow looking for home and he’s found it on QP-1. He’s dressed up for a date!May 16, 2022 at 2:31 pm #76684SharlaParticipant
Ann that is a delightful sparrow.
I found an old photo of a birthday cake to use.May 16, 2022 at 5:04 pm #76688May 16, 2022 at 6:36 pm #76693Mary SolaasParticipant
OK – showing one of my favorite movies which was “The Princess Bride”. In it they all had to climb the Cliff of Despair and when they reached the top all the real action began! Well, when Laurie and I were on one of our road trips in northern California, I had to stop and take a picture of these rocks – it reminded me of the Cliff of Despair. So here it is!May 16, 2022 at 6:43 pm #76696
Here is my first quick page. This is my granddaughter when she was little, trying to figure out a kitestring.May 16, 2022 at 7:05 pm #76698Mary SolaasParticipant
Here is my extra – Sleeping Beauty – forgot the font name – my great granddaughter Mary Louise.May 16, 2022 at 7:34 pm #76699Sue ThomasParticipant
Pirkko, I’m curious, when you say you used layers to change the colours, did you mean adjustment layers?May 16, 2022 at 11:13 pm #76708
Here is my QP. One is a photo that I played with in Filter Forge and the Blood Moon (which I didn’t get to see because it was overcast😥) is the Scrap Tutorial called Punched. Only you can’t see the “Punched” effect because of reducing to 600×600.
Mary, I love that movie too…ROUS’s. they said there was no rats in Alberta and my husband saw one crossing in front of the car on day, so we called them ROUS’s because “there are no rats in Alberta” (how does a rat know where the borders are?)
Pirkko. I love the colors you changed it to. I would love to know how to do that. I was trying to change colors but I couldn’t figure out how.

here is my extra
He has no name yet – new member of my son’s family 🙂
They found out about it last weekend. It is only 3.5 weeks old, so it is allowed to grow in the care of its mother for some time to come. It doesn’t even get its own paw off the couches 🙂May 17, 2022 at 2:26 am #76713May 17, 2022 at 11:43 am #76720Sue ThomasParticipant
Pirkko, I’m sorry I misread, and misunderstood you. I don’t know what I was thinking at the time. I use the blend modes a great deal. Susan, the blending through masterclass, is a great class to watch, it will give you a good understanding on how to use the blend modes.May 17, 2022 at 3:38 pm #76728
This is my second Quick Page. We had a lot of fun with our grand-niece at the Indiana Dunes last summer!May 17, 2022 at 4:25 pm #76731Anne LampParticipant
QP1 This was from the last trip we made with Mother back to Arkansas where she was from. Luckily all four of her daughters were able to go. The alpha I used is “DC Patriotic Foil Balloon Alphabet” probably from Creativefabrica.May 17, 2022 at 6:11 pm #76736
QP1-Extra is my step-grand-niece Kate who lives with my daughter and is celebrating her prom and graduation from high school this year.May 17, 2022 at 7:12 pm #76740
QP-1 This is an Orchid Cactus bloom. I started the plant from a slip off of my husband’s grandmother’s plant that we estimated was about 100 years old. We waited many years to get the plant to bloom! It was worth the wait….May 17, 2022 at 7:17 pm #76742
QP-2 A fun afternoon playing in the Dunes on Cape Cod in Massachusetts!May 17, 2022 at 11:10 pm #76749Linda J WalkerParticipant
Just getting started tonight with Quick Page #1. I used a photo of some of the tulips I planted last fall. They were beautiful when they bloomed. But it was short lived, they are all gone now, just 9 days later. Photo was taken May 8, 2022.May 18, 2022 at 1:59 am #76754
Here’s my Day 2 layouts. On the tackle box I changed the color with Hue/Saturation and got a color that match the shadows in the photo (enhance with Filter Forge). Faded Memories was the same truck as Day 1, but this time made to look like an old yellowed photo (Filter forge again). I turned Quick Page to greyscale, then negative image, hue/saturation, colorize and the bumped the contrast a bit and lowered the contrast on the truck to make it more old and faded looking.
I got a weird message when I was saving about losing vector data. I absolutely had it on save as PSPimage. I duplicated the layout as back up insurance and then clicked okay on the original layout and it saved okay. Two things I did was used the script “open as a copy” for the Quick Page and used the eraser tool on the vector (that I turned into a raster).
Thank you Pirkko and Sue, I will look into that tutorial/masterclass.May 18, 2022 at 8:58 am #76761
My opinion for Day 2 QP
The water bird’s child is probably in the picture so I changed the color of the environment accordingly 🙂
The photo is from here:

Susan I really like the colour scheme with the tackle box photo – it really works well. And, Pirkko you are right – the blues are a perfect fit for the baby bird.
I’ve been unimaginative and simply added a photo.May 18, 2022 at 12:01 pm #76771
QP-2 – I tried a different approach this time. I left the QP alone, no color changes or embellishments and treated it as a frame to find the best photo to showcase. I ended up with a shot of my 5 gallon, heavily planted aquarium and my boy, Patriot, the Galaxy Koi Betta. It seemed to work with the layout. Nothing else added except his title.May 18, 2022 at 12:05 pm #76773
QP2-Extra – following the trend of finding the best photo for the existing layout, here’s a shot my friend Clay Olds sent me from Kenya. I think the colors POP! 😉May 18, 2022 at 2:44 pm #76781Marie-ClaireParticipant
I always enjoy seeing what the other members are making, and there is always something I learn from
These are the QP from day 1 and 2 and the extras
The gray cat belongs to the neighbors who often visit us on our terrace, the other cat, I noticed in a field during a walk.
The photo of day 1 is my daughter’s birthday when she turned 2.
The butterfly is an old photo also taken during a walk.May 18, 2022 at 2:50 pm #76783
We have been living and traveling in our Motorhome this year. We are now in North Carolina on the coast. I am spotlighting a few of the picture I took yesterday on the beach! I have been admiring many of the quick pages in the forum! So, I took the opportunity to change my background color on the template with the color changer tool, and I added a title. I loved Pirkko’s baby duck, and Susan’s Tackle Box!May 18, 2022 at 3:21 pm #76784
Marie-Claire your Extra 1 is so beautiful – great colors 🙂May 18, 2022 at 3:32 pm #76786
