I just want to say again that I’m very impressed with everyone’s work. It’s wonderful to see so many different interpretations of the same tutorials. We can be inspired by each other’s layouts and incorporate some ideas into our own.
Cassel, this bootcamp was wonderful, not just for newbies, but for the rest of us, too. I always learn something from you. Thank you for doing this.

@James, it is not a browser issue, the forum won’t take or display .pspimage files, so you have to save them in .jpg format before uploading them. Typically, nothing will accept .pspimages (not Facebook or Instagram or Pinterest) because it cannot be displayed without PSP.January 24, 2019 at 7:20 pm #25175
Hi Scrapbook Campers. Well, if anybody else thought they were late in starting toss that shame into the bin. Returning from a 10 day Noble Silence and Meditation retreat plus needing several days to get back into the land of living makes for a very late start indeed! Ready for Bootcamp now!!
Am using PSP 2019 Ultimate and the settings are exactly the same as Cassels.January 24, 2019 at 8:58 pm #25177
Day 2. About to eat lunch … but not the digital one … although as Cassel did say, no calories!January 25, 2019 at 2:43 am #25187
Day 3 – Layout. Created using the freebie kit by Falango – Antonia.January 25, 2019 at 7:32 am #25189
Day 4 Layout. This creation utilised the delightful mini kit by JSD_to gather.January 25, 2019 at 10:12 am #25194
Annie, I hope you had a wonderful time at your retreat. Your pages are wonderful.
Was the background on your lunch layout clipart or original? I love the fringes and would like to know how you made them.

I ordered prints of my 5 layouts. I plan to include them in my large scrapbooks with all my paper pages. They came out great. I KNEW 12×12 was big (I have done paper for years) but I guess I never realized that my pictures would be so big when they were printed! I usually put 5 pics or so on a page (when doing paper), so to have pages with only 1 picture… it is bigger than 5×7. My little brain hadn’t put that together. I plan to add some paper ephemera to each page (tickets, etc). I think I like this combination scraping. And I will definitely try more layouts with multiple pictures.

@Casey yes, mix scrapbooking is called Hybrid and it is just like you do: make a base that is digital and add various elements that are 3D, whether they are ephemera or some traditional elements/textures/decorations.January 25, 2019 at 10:37 pm #25204
Hi Michele. Thanks so much for your delightful comments, very much appreciated. The background was from a plaid paper background and the edge was from one of Carole’s tuts – It was called Frayed Edges (2) and can be located under Classes, Intermediate, Creative Scraps, Edges, Frayed Edges (2). Have fun, it was really easy to do and the result was very pleasing! <3
P.S. The retreat was really hard work and sleeping featured a lot, lol! Who would have thought that 10 days of Noble Silence and meditation could take so much out of a person … but, it was wonderful, thank you.January 26, 2019 at 3:40 am #25210
Day 5. Kit used was Natural Breeze by Carena, her work is beautiful. Delightful photos from Unsplash are by:- (left to right) Clarisse Meyer, Evelyn Mostrom and Sam Manns.January 26, 2019 at 11:08 am #25211
There is so much in the campus that I just haven’t gotten to yet, Annie. There’s not enough time in the day to do everything I want.
The pics on your day 5 are perfect together. I didn’t realize they were from different photogs until I read your comments. You have a great eye.

Hear that Michele. So many things to do on the Campus it seems like a never ending story! A couple of things in the Bootcamp tuts were new discoveries … guess we just never stop learning! Thanks for your lovely comment. <3January 26, 2019 at 9:31 pm #25225

@Annie, and it is a pure delight to look at your pages too! Great work!January 27, 2019 at 7:19 am #25232
Thanks Cassel, it really was terrific fun. You are an amazing tutor and I have learned a lot. <3January 29, 2019 at 9:54 pm #25349Richard DanculovichParticipant
Hello all, I’m Dan from Oklahoma, downloaded PSP 2019 the day I started to Bootcamp tutorials, first time I ever used it. I did get through all the tutorials, late after I got home from a vacation. Finished up my first page as you can see below. Kind of off the mark from some of the kits in the tutorials, but being a 72 year old man I have a little trouble relating to the flowers and frills. I will be taking the Basic class, hope to learn a lot more. I hope to put some of my family and travel photos into my future pages.
Please feel free to give constructive comments, thanks.

@Richard, don’t worry about the flowers and the frills. We use them mostly to show and explain about shadows because they have a different thickness than other elements, but nobody HAS to use them. Some people just prefer minimal embellishments or none at all. It all depends on your page and your preferences. Everyone is unique in that! Great page! I like how you used that photo as a background!January 31, 2019 at 8:46 am #25395
Dan, I don’t always do flowery layouts. If you look in the showroom at the monthly “What Are You Working On” sections, you’ll see the diverse styles people have.
I think your page is great; you featured your pics in a wonderful way. And I agree with Cassel…using a photo for the background really made it special.
~ MicheleJanuary 31, 2019 at 6:29 pm #25403
Great work Dan. I like your style. Flowers and frills are not always called for, depends on the creator. I’m a bit of a minimalist myself cos I thank that over decorating takes the attention away from the intended subject. Your creation, your choice! <3February 1, 2019 at 7:36 am #25426
