    I don’t remember when I posted something in this thread, and I still have nothing, but I love to see what everyone is creating… I am still creating layouts for the Template Workshop, and at the same time, I am reviewing my Scripting Lessons.

    Mary, Bonnie, Ann, Marie-Claire, Trish, Michele, Lynda, Pirkko, Colin Hooson, Susan, Sue, lovely, creative, and fun work as always!

    Don’t hesitate, order now online your nature prints, and I will guarantee it will arrive no later than Friday afternoon. 🙂  I wanted to showcase the quote in a slightly different way, which meant I ended up creating the books, and taking out a page. The frame is unique to the butterfly photo. For this type of frame, I always create a new frame for each photo. The tag is one of many I have created. I love Carole’s spiral binding tubes to create books. Actually, I ordered gifts for my granddaughters for Easter last Friday through Amazon UK. At 8pm my time. 3am UK time. One gift arrived on the Saturday afternoon, and the other 2 arrived on Sunday afternoon.

    I wish you all a very happy and sunny Easter!

    For this card I used the diamond extra 1B card from the recent Template Workshop. I made all the brushstrokes into a mask for the photo of my easterdecoration on a sidetable. Then I put the same photo inside the frame. The font is Beladina Gadelia, a recent freebie by Creative Fabrica with a lot of glyphs and the dove silhoutte I found a long time ago on the internet.

    LAB 7 Mod 12. Streamer, right angle triangle paper, speech bubble. OK, they are all present in this layout. I played with the streamer and the mesh warp tool and will post this also – it just didn’t work with this layout. I also made several papers with different colors and played around with the previous papers in different colors. The Hue, Saturation, Lightness tool is CRAZY!!! It mage me several different colors of the paper with the multi lines at an angle. Would love to do something with the pink and purple papers I made.

    I ran across this picture of Rudy lounging and remembered a template by Miss Fish. Thanks to Bonnie for turning me on to her work.

    Lab 8 Mod 2. Shaped Text, Word Frame, and an interesting arrow patterned paper. Accomplished, but – oh, boy – troubles with the shaped text: I forgot to hide the ellipse shape and had to erase it when it appeared on my background! The word frame gave me trouble until I listened and watched the video – then it made sense. Anyway, done. The elements and papers are mine. The pictures were taken by my great granddaughter which she graciously shared with me.

    I volunteered at an APP (Association of Professional Pickleball) tournament hosted by Lee Whitwell, pro player. My goal was to have my picture taken with Lee. Success!

    My friends played in this tournament. Technically, they did play with the pros. Stack it up script by Carole.

    I did  few cuts… It is difficult to get smooth edges

    Pirkko – very interesting. Can you explain your technique and what tools you used?

    Pirkko, depending on the tool you use, you will get rough edges.

    • If you use a Selection tool (like the Magic Wand), make sure the Anti-alias is checked. Even if it is, it might not be smooth.
    • If you can Feather your selection by 1 pixel, it might help smooth the edges somewhat.
    • If you can use a vector shape (if the design is a Preset Shape), then you can go to Selections > From Vector Object, and that will give the best edges possible.
    • And of course, the smaller the selection is, the rougher it will be.

    Pirkko – like what you are doing. Thanks, Carole, for describing those tools for us. It is hard to get hair, strands of grass, etc. extracted when you are extracting from a pic.
    This is my take on Lab 8 Mod 3. I wasn’t going to do a layout for this module, but changed my mind. The tutorials were for making a stretch of thread to sew onto something (I decided to make a banner and thread the pieces together); a circle of elements and to, incidently, make a script (which I did); a word with a large outline. I did all of those and multiple copies of the circle: one with flowers (in several colors), and one with hearts (one in red, and one in pink). I used my gradient for the background and blurred it a couple of times and added noise and a texture and then reduced the opacity. The small papers and the elements are my own.

    Something I have been working on.  My daughter-in -law asked if I could  create an  alphabet tracing book for the girls.  This project isn’t related in any shape or form to scrapbooking or photography. But I said yes. I’m coming to the end of the alphabet  now.  Then I will go onto numbers 1-10.  Here is an example.  Using only PSP.  I have created the elements myself for the relevant letters.  The font used is called quicksand. It comes with  7 fonts, including the dash.  For the tracing  pages, I used the  Quicksand bold font, and the  Quicksand dash. Created on A4 paper, for Emma to print off as many sheets of each letter she wants.  Here in Canada we use  letter paper. Once the initial template was created, it was more or less plain sailing, for subsequent letters.

    Again, I wasn’t going to do anything for Lab 8, Mod 4 – HOWEVER, once I got started on making the papers and elements, I had a lot of fun. First I will post the layout I came up with. Guess what! Another Route 66. The elements to create were: a new kind of star for a paper; adding a rick rack kind of border to a ribbon; creating a rainbow starburst and twirling it. Well, all are present in the layout. I will post it and then show you some of the fun I had with the star pattern. All the papers and elements are my own.

    I overloaded the system – sorry.  Now I will post the ribbon I made with it.

    Mary that is a really neat pattern.  The ribbon is beautiful.

    Pirkko, So cute!  I love that page.

    Bonnie – haven’t said much to you, but I enjoy your layouts and the adventures of the pickleball team.

    Susan – thanks for the kind remarks.

    I agree with Mary.  Bonnie, the athletics of the pickleball players really interests me.  And I have to say, I LOVE your trail cam and always am eager to see what you’ve captured.  That last fox was to die for.  I hope you keep those pages coming.

    And to everyone in general…there can never be enough cats!  and dogs…and birds, okay, anything animal.  Keep them coming too.

    Pirkko, you’re right about repetition! It’s why I keep taking the basic courses over and over. Your cat layout, Noel with his Mom, came out exceptionally well. I’m off to do one, also, as I have two new photos to showcase.

    Basic Scrap Course – Module One. The photos are mine taken Tues 4/26 with my iPhone camera. The title font is Impact, the text is Lucinda. I’m following along after Pirkko … and I just whipped up to Amazon and ordered a real Oriole feeder. LOL
