I agree, Ann – really neat. Love playing, but it takes time.
I played around with making patterns for ribbons again and came up with a pattern I used for this ribbon. I used the tutorial to create a scalloped ribbon in Lab5 Mod11 and make a scalloped top also.April 25, 2021 at 8:16 pm #57347
Ann this is soooo sweet and those cuties are huddled together beautifully … posing for the lens! Cool job my friend. 😀April 26, 2021 at 4:56 pm #57362Ann SeeberParticipant
Did an In Memoriam for my daughter’s dog, Lolajean. Sweet girl! Used Cassel’s template. Not easy!April 27, 2021 at 11:10 am #57375
I haven’t been here for a while and tons of new wonderful work… Too many to comment on, so Great Work, Everyone!April 27, 2021 at 11:18 am #57378Bonnie BallentineParticipant
The US Open was last week. It claims to be the biggest pickleball party in the world. The subject of this layout is the winners of the pro women’s doubles gold medal. Their win is something of an upset as they defeated 2 of the top female players in the world. While we love and support all our players, this has caused some excitement in the pickleball world. The Open is located in Naples, FL…thus the template.
None of these photos are mine…they were snagged off the web.April 28, 2021 at 6:00 am #57402Ann SeeberParticipant
I found this photo by Roger Pare and story by Judy Lampe Shelledy on The Hudson Valley in Pictures on Facebook. I created the background from a photo by Jennifer O’Shea last winter that had a lot of sky and I enlarged it so I could get a 3600px paper from it. I did a mask for the eaglet but it ended up obsured with the round frame that I created using the selection tool and then applying the chisel and buttonize. The pale bottom paper I used Cassel’s burned edges script and the label was in my stash of elements along with the sun and the trees. The title font is Curlz.

I have not done a lot of scraping lately but I have created a few thing for my Osprey Nest chat. Audubon Osprey Nest
Hog Island, Bremen, Maine, USA The Osprey part was a screenshot from that sight. I used the free photo frame that was for Mothers Day and changed the colors because it is a male Osprey. I then added another frame around it just because I thought it looked better that way but that was after I resized it for here.

It’s already morning somewhere in the world. Good morning ladies and gentlemen! There’s a masterclass this weekend on effects. Art media. I use a lot of these tools to create papers, and frames. In this frame I used Charcoal, and fur. I can set my watch as to the time the ground squirrels get up and out in the morning. Here’s one of them emerging , to start it’s day, as they are only active during the day. Carole’s knotted ribbon script, confetti script and corner punch. I created the sun and word art. Have a good day everyone, no matter what you’ll be doing.April 28, 2021 at 10:23 pm #57425
Far to many to comment on individually. So many positively incredible pages created. I’m in awe with all the talent displayed. Well done one and all.April 28, 2021 at 10:26 pm #57427
Finally got round to playing with some of the goodies I purchased in Carole’s sale. Twisted knot, heart tubes, ribbon factory, and custom brad. I framed the ground squirrel, created a colour palette from the photo, twisted vine around the knotted ribbon, threaded the hearts through holes I created, and the tag I made, scalloped the green paper.April 29, 2021 at 4:08 am #57429MicheleParticipant
I have so enjoyed this month’s posts. With the growing number of members, we get to see many varied techniques and results that are such an inspiration for me. Way to go, Campus!April 29, 2021 at 7:10 am #57430
I agree with Michele; more members, more techniques, and more inspiration for all of us!
I haven’t been very active lately and not doing much, but it is also a joy to see what everybody is working on.April 29, 2021 at 9:12 am #57431
I have to agree with you two too! It’s great to see the campus growing in members.April 29, 2021 at 11:02 am #57432Anne LampParticipant
This may be redundant, but I agree with Michele also. Seeing all these great project gives me some great ideas. Now all I need is the time to actually make them. My crazy real world keeps getting in the way of my fun world.April 29, 2021 at 10:45 pm #57436
I’ve been playing with Cassel’s scripts and decided to make an alpha using Dimension2 script, Bauhaus 93 font and the paper was one I made a little while ago … kinda followed a plaid pattern but got side tracked. It is a terrific script and I think the alpha didn’t turn out half bad. Thanks for takin a peek friends. ;DApril 30, 2021 at 3:56 am #57438MicheleParticipant
It came out totally good, Annie!April 30, 2021 at 5:00 am #57439
Annie, this looks great! I love, love the plaid pattern. You are becoming the master of alphas, don’t know which one I love best.April 30, 2021 at 5:42 am #57440
Michele and Cristina, thank you so much my friends, just love your comments … makes me glow! 😀April 30, 2021 at 8:08 am #57441
Annie, Your Alpha is great. You will have to show us some more.April 30, 2021 at 8:16 am #57442

I have had the dimensions script several years,I love it! I’ll have to post some pages in which I used that script. The plaid pattern works really well with the alpha. I love it.April 30, 2021 at 1:43 pm #57447
I was just messing around with the curled ribbon, bow15 and ribbon scripts so I thought I’d do something with them. Just for fun! The photo is my backyard coneflowerApril 30, 2021 at 8:49 pm #57453
Thanks Lynda. I went to the store and nearly had a fit because my search brought up nothing as well. I then put a space before I put in the number 2 and there it was … touchy, touchy. 😀April 30, 2021 at 9:08 pm #57454
Neat job of weaving the bow and ribbons Lynda and a beautiful photo of the Coneflower … well done. 😀April 30, 2021 at 9:10 pm #57456
Thanks dear Sue, always appreciated my friend. 😀April 30, 2021 at 11:27 pm #57497
Thanks Annie and I did find the script exactly the way you said.. those spaces etc. are important. 🙂 I do like the ribbon and bow scripts.April 30, 2021 at 11:31 pm #57498Diana CraftParticipant
Diana Craft here, It’s been a long time since I’ve posted and I have missed you all tremendously and although I haven’t posted often I stop in quite often to soak up all your creative juices and marvel at your accomplishments, you have brought me great joy. It’s been so long in fact that a lot of you won’t have a glue as to who I am, sometimes I wonder myself? (S) I love Cassell, I love PSP and please don’t hate me but I don’t do a LOT of scrap-booking. I was into it very heavily several years ago but I keep being tempted off the path by every pretty flower and wander into all sorts of other things creative. I must warn you that this is going to be rambling down that lane ,so if you get bored and want to wander yourself, feel free.
I have uploaded a lot of pics of the main things that has been keeping me away from the campus this year and although they don’t involve scrap-booking, they definitely involve PSP. I use it a lot, and I print a lot, more than my poor husband would ever dream. I do most of my designing with printouts that involve altering sweatshirts for my personal use at the moment. I find an image I like and then, as I am sure you are all familiar with, the juices just start to flow. I don’t care much for machine sewing so I do almost all of my stitching by hand. So, trying not to go on toooooo long I will get onto showing and explaining my jackets.
The first two photos are of my appliqued rose that I found at http://www.photoshop-kopona.com where I get a lot of beautiful free graphics. Taking it into PSP I selected and divided all the individual elements and made them into tubes, then printed them out to the scale I wanted and cut templates for each piece from Freezer Paper and ironed them onto my chosen fabric from my stash as close to the original coloring of the rose, not always as close as I would have liked but “One does, what one must!”, as THEY say. (Chuckle) I don’t applique in the usual manner, that ability doesn’t seem to reside in my nature. I press the freezer paper to the top (the right) side of the pattern piece, the opposite of the usual method, that I was fortunate enough to find in Janet Pittman’s wonderful book, “Applique made Simple, The basics and beyond”. It seemed all wrong at first but now I wouldn’t do it any other way,
The rose is my favorite subject to work with, I never tire of doing them in a variety of media. This bloom was done to reside on my bed cover so I see it the first thing every morning and I can be very pleased with what I had accomplished all by myself, she adds smugly! The sweatshirts shown next are something new for me, I’ve never liked sweatshirts for myself, my shape wasn’t made for them to be attractive. (Round is a shape, isn’t it?)
My first converted sweatshirt was the burgundy decorated with pansies. The black is roses, ribbons a cross-stitched design of Victorian ladies hands, copied from a Victorian piece of ephemera in my collection of calling cards collected over the years of thrift’in. Calling cards were my first introduction to antiques because when the babies were little and having only $3 dollars to spend on myself, I found that at that time I could get a lot of little treasures for only 5 cents each, and I went home happy as a lark.
Well, I’ve gone on quite enough, you can see the other jacket for yourself and if there i anything you want to know more about, just post. I will be back! I will see/hear some of you Sunday at Cassell”s performance art. Hugs,
Diana, I sure hope I haven’t over-stayed my welcome. BYE now!May 1, 2021 at 2:56 am #57502
Diana, there are many members here that are not scrappers, but as you are showing us, there are many creative ways to use the program, and have fun at the same time. You sure have been busy! : )May 1, 2021 at 3:15 am #57503
Lynda, beautiful photo! I love this time of the year when we see nature blooming in all different colors… like a miracle after the winter… I am a big fan of all Cassel’s ribbon scripts; they ran as if it were magic… Nice job with the ribbon.
Sue, those little fellows are really cute, and it must be a joy to see them so close… Your work is outstanding, and I love, love to enlarge, and discover all the details you added… And Cassel’s scripts, tubes, etc., make our life so much easier!May 1, 2021 at 4:12 am #57505
Playtime with Cassel’s scripts again today. I created another alpha (for more general use) using a weatherboard pattern, Hobo font, and Cassel’s first Dimension script. It is a dream of a script to use and creation possibilities are endless. Thanks for takin a peek my friends. 😀
