    A major part of the Scrapbook Campus is and has always been teaching. Since the very beginning, 10 years ago, we have offered tutorials and classes to help our members learn more about PaintShop Pro and digital scrapbooking.

    As part of our celebration, you are encouraged to show off what you have learned.

    In this thread (and this thread only), post projects you have completed, following at least one tutorial or class in the Campus.

    Here are the rules:

    • ONE entry per post (don’t post two or three images in a single post)
    • you need to LINK to the class, tutorial, or blog post that you learned from
    • you can post as many projects as you want but you can get a maximum of 10 entries
    • the random draw will take place on September 13th, live, on FB (the exact time will be updated later)

    Suggestions:

    • make sure you resize your project images to 600 pixels before posting in the forum
    • if you can avoid posting all 10 entries at once, it will make us discover your work little by little; it is not necessary, but might be fun if you space your post a bit (you have 13 days after all)

    Now, let’s have fun. Let’s show off what has happened in the last 10 years.

    Since adding links MIGHT trigger the spam filter, if your post does not appear, it might be caught. If this happens, just drop me an email and I will pull it from the spam filter.

    Carole, I think my post went to the Spam as it does not show here… I tried to post it again, but it says: “Error Duplicate Reply detected.”

    Happy Anniversary, Carole! Congratulations on the 10th Anniversary of the Campus!

    Your talent, expertise, and high-quality tutorials/material are what kept me here for all those years and hopefully for many more.

    Also very important are the people, the friends I made on the Campus… Everyone cheers for each other, shares tips and their knowledge, which makes me want to return to the site.

    I will show one of my very first layouts from 2016… Boy,  was I proud of my achievement! LOL

    It includes cass-Water-Alpha Tags” freebie, and the technique is Interlacing.

    Cristina, that is so pretty.  I just watched the video on the interlacing technique.  It’s really interesting and I’m not sure i would have come across this handy trick without first seeing it in action.  Thanks for posting it.

    Congratulations Carole!  There isn’t anything that I can add to what Cristina hasn’t  already said.   We are a  wonderful,  international,  like minded family.  I have been a member for almost 7 yrs now.  I will show  one of  Carole’s more recent  tutorials  to be found  in the blog, under tips and tricks.

    Not sure if this answers the rules, but Love Challenge was a great learning experience for me.  This is the result of Day 2 of the Love Challenge in 2020.  I learned how to make a plaid background from a picture, masking, adding a white layer under the background and lowering the opacity, using framing techniques on the background, using an element from the template.  Probably utilizing other things I had learned from the basic scrap course also.

    Congratulations Cassel and Scrapbook Campus on this momentous anniversary.  I am very new to any scrapbooking or graphics programs.  I have being a member since May 2021 where I lucked out when I received an email from Corel about the Scrapbook Bootcamp.  That was a game changer for me and PSP, which I’d been buying for 3 years and never used.  I just became a Diamond member (side note: the amount of tutorials is mind blowing!) and  I am working through some tutorials.  This one below is from Lab 10-7 https://scrapbookcampus.com/the-lab/lab-11-module-07/ called Negative Effects.  This was made yesterday and I’m using this one because it’s the first one I made without having to follow along with the video or reading the handout.  Sorry for the crazy colors, I just wanted to use colors that would have a lot of contrast for learning purposes.

    I have learned so much over the last year and a half. My first adventure in the Scrapbook world was in February of 2020, when I participated in the Love Challenge. Prior to joining the Campus, every time I opened up PSP, I closed it again in utter frustration, because I didn’t know what I was doing. After I worked through the Love Challenge, I bought the Basic Scrap Course, so that I could further my education. Below is my favorite design from the Basic Scrap Course. Here is my take on Model 3.

    Wow! Super projects, Everyone. I agree with Sue…Cristina I said it all so well! Congratulations, Carole. I wish I had found you back when I started with PSP 8…that was more than 10 years ago. Sue, the out of bounds technique is one of my favorites. It always catches the eye. This project is from the January 2018 Bootcamp. Isn’t it fun to look back and then realize how much we have learned! Thank you, Carole!

    In the first place many congratulations with 10 years scrapbook campus!!! I’m part of it since March 2020 and have learned so much and I like it even more.

    This entry is from the Double Take challenge and I learned to use masks and to make them myself, make a background with the Kaleidoskop and make double pages.

    I am so happy to have found this group and Carole’s awesome tutorials. This community is so supportive. Thank you!  Carole Congrats on 10 years!  You have helped a lot of people. I am eternally grateful that you have helped me learn PSP.

    I love Scrapbooking and participating in the Challenges. I also like to Blog and share my RV Adventures. Learning PSP techniques through the Campus and using those techniques on scrapbook pages, has helped me to also apply those techniques to projects outside of scrapbooking. Recently, I participated in the Travel Challenge. One of the tasks in that Challenge was to create a date stamp. I created the date stamp for the Challenge. After completing my stamp, I got the idea that I could create a Logo for my Blog page using the same technique.

    I wish more people (those not necessarily interested in scrapbooking) understood that Carole is teaching Graphic Design concepts and skills in her Scrapbook Tutorials.

    This was my very first project after I joined the Campus and I loved every minute of it. I learnt how to use so many PSP tools that I never knew I had. Thank you Carole and everyone here at the Campus.

    one of my most recent  activities here was the magazine challenge and I learned some about masks, some about templates and a lot about design. It also helped me to decide what I need to do to create the heritage books for my kids so Thank you Carole.

    Hi friends and special Hi 5 to Carole on your special birthday. This is one of Carole’s templates from a bootcamp.  I can’t remember the title, but I know it had a lot of template work and I found it so difficult at the time. I live in a fruit growing district in lower new Zealand and we used to get very severe frosts in the winter.  We used to burn oil in pots to  save new buds but now a cleaner method is used with water sprays.  And just a bit of trivia, My grandad, a horticulturist went to America  in 1937 to learn more about this area of frost protection and it was he who introduced the frost pots to our community

    I’m  one of those that like to follow instructions either from a book, or from a pdf file rather than  from a  video.  Carole’s book  is always within arms reach of the laptop.  It is packed with useful tips and tricks.  One such trick I used in this  project. I could have done it another way, but  this trick is  easier.  Some of you  will know what it is.  I’ll give you a hint, it’s to do with layering   multiple  photos.  I create pages to showcase my photos, in greeting cards, calendars and ecards.  The campus isn’t  just for scrapbookers, as  all tutorials can be applied to any discipline within  universal graphic designing.

    Entries recorded up to here for :

    Cristina, I had almost forgotten about those tags too!

    Sue Thomas (2), that mallard is so well extracted! The effect is stunning. Glad to see that you are using that book on a regular basis. There is so much to discover inside those tools, commands and settings!

    Mary Solaas, so many techniques even in a single project!

    Cindy Harris (2), I am amazed at how much you have learned over the last couple of years. Do you remember your very first project? Thank you for your words on my scripts. For those who might not know, those scripts are on the sister site, the Creation Cassel store.

    MoniqueN, that is when you created your own mask, correct?

    Wanda (Sue) McGuire, do you remember after that class how we saw a crowd of gnomes of all kinds. They are all so cute.

    Susan Ewart, sometimes that the “crazy” colors are just what you need when practicing, and that is always important.

    Laurie Solaas (2), being frustrated when opening the program is EXACTLY how I felt too. I had never used a graphic program when I got my first copy of PSP7 (yes, that old), and then, the program was even more simple than it is now! That is a fun logo that you created for your blog. Glad that a ‘scrapbooking’ tutorial transferred to something totally unrelated.

    Bonnie Ballentine, that is an ‘old’ Bootcamp! I actually started teaching PSP with version 8, around 2003, but that was in a Yahoo group. It used to be only text-based tutorials. Who knows, we MIGHT have crossed path… if you had been speaking French (because I started in a French group).

    Corrie Kinkel, I had never realized how many challenges and projects had used templates and masks! I guess once you can use them, there is a whole new world of resources that opens.

    Anita Wyatt, yes, there is so much to discover. And to tell a little secret, I still find new things myself, even after 15 years!

    Diane Co., I hope you will have the opportunity to create many more pages in that album. Now that you know the basics of that format, you can create your own templates and pages to continue.

    Val, you used the cutout word technique and added a nice metal finish, while I had done it with wood. It is fun to see how a basic technique can be tweaked for a totally different result!

    Sheila Hogg, that is such a fun out-of-bound result!

    Shirley, I guess the “controlled ice” is not as cold as a “naked frost”?

    Keep those projects coming!

    Here is one from the May 2021 Bootcamp.  My first bootcamp.  I love the simple white frame around the photo’s.  I sure had a heck of a time learning the flood fill tool.  It finally came together in Bootcamp #2 (July 2021) with much appreciated help from Cassel and fellow campers.  Thank you all.
