@Milan, what is your current challenge? Is it organizing? the scanning? the planning? the scrapbooking itself?April 10, 2019 at 7:47 am #27604
Teri, thank you for your kind comment on my layout. <3…. Like Annie, I think you are very creative and you have shown us that here and on FB. I too get inspired by seeing somebody else’s layout. It can be the colors, position of a photo, a pattern and so on. Your layout is lovely! Well done!
Dear Annie and Dawn, thank you so much for the lovely comments. You both are always very kind. <3 <3

Hello everyone! I finally heard from tech support and they suggested that I should reset my workspace. So I had to go through all the tweaks and adjustments I made again. I needed the practice anyway. I’m still struggling with the materials palette. If I get color on anything it’s a fortunate accident on my part. I did have a go at the string art tutorial. That was an excellent lesson. I had no idea I could do that. I’m definitely going to look at that again. I absolutely love the boat scene that Carol did. That was AMAZING!April 15, 2019 at 12:32 pm #27792
Milan Ch, I haven’t worked in a similar project like yours. Maybe other members here can give their input on that. Would be nice to see your work here.
Sharon, this was really a great class. I have to practice it much more to make something interesting.April 15, 2019 at 1:15 pm #27794
Here is the layout I made to practice the tutorials from the Lab 9 Module 04: Quatrefoil2 Pattern, Triangular Edge and Yardstick. I also used the template that was part of this module.
From Cassel: freebie Laser cut doily-Round04 (Laser cut doilies round Script). I made the two flowers elements following a tutorial (Creative Scrap>Miscellaneous>Flower2). I used cass-date stamp #05 Script.
Freebies: Day Dreams ‘n Design May Blog Train – Background and Mat papers — Harper Finch Happy Days & Sweet Spring – papers (title and flowers) and buttons.
Now I will try to make something for the Word Challenge (Start) and for the Diamond Scrap Challenge.April 16, 2019 at 8:55 pm #27865AprilDawnParticipant

Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. I worked for several days on this layout, trying different elements, papers, etc… Very often I looked at the tutorials that are available on the Creative Scrap section and then decide which one I am going to add to my page… It is always fun. 🙂
Best wishes to you <3April 21, 2019 at 7:02 pm #28129Teri CleavelandParticipant

What extraction tool did you use? Presently, I found the Object Extractor tool works pretty well for a smooth outline such as this. The PSP User Guide has good instructions on how to use this tool. The Erase tool used in conjunction with the Object Extractor tool gives good results with a fairly smooth outline./April 26, 2019 at 7:29 pm #28240CasselKeymaster
I personally tend to prefer this technique:
But it is obviously a personal preference.April 26, 2019 at 8:05 pm #28242Dennis DavisParticipant
For intricate outlines, the Edit Selection tool is best. I use it for birds, leaves, flowers, etc. For smooth outlines, I find the Object Extractor is good and Flood Fill is great to color in the interior. It gets it all without having to edit the small misses.
As you demonstrated in the Basic Extraction webinar with the apple, flood filling the transparency part with white, makes using the Eraser tool easy to use to remove the unwanted parts of the extraction.April 30, 2019 at 9:03 pm #28358Sharon WilkeParticipant
I’ve been really busy going through the tutorials and learning how to create some the elements that I see in other talented creators scrapbook pages. I’m slowly getting the hang of all of it. April has run out on me so I did a compilation of most of the tutorials I worked on in April (I still have a few hours left). I also found some coloring pages that I worked on over the weekend. That really a big help actually. I learned a little more about layers, selections and paintbrushes. It was definitely a challenge!
