Show off what you are working on in April, be it a scrapbook page, a tutorial, or anything else you want
We are curious and want to see, and get inspireApril 7, 2018 at 4:35 am #18192
thankfully my relatives love roses also so here is a couple more cards I have done. I have used images of my hand painted roses one with pencils with the help of a purchased digital stamp and the other one was done with acrylic paint .. once I scanned the images into computer and then into PSP I was able to alter them and turn them into what you see here and actually I have been quite pleased with how they print out as I use good paper and change the colour settings in printer a bit to get the right look…I also used Cassel’s edge font 2 letter m for the glitter matt and the diamonds were done with a tube… the sentiments are purchased digital stamps… hope the colour comes up on your computers ok…. best wishes everyone.

Dawn, these are absolutely gorgeous, love them both. There is nothing not to like about Roses especially the big smelly cabbage type ones. Love it.
Sheila xxApril 7, 2018 at 6:14 pm #18198
Sheila Thank you very much for your kind comment on my cards, I am enjoying making cards and roses have always been one of my favourite flowers…
Dawn.April 9, 2018 at 4:37 am #18223
Dawn, the roses you’ve made are beautiful, and you created great cards with them. Lovely work!
I will try to do something with the techniques shown in The Lab 8 modules 3 (March) and 4 (April).April 9, 2018 at 8:58 am #18225
Cristina, Thank you, I appreciate your kind comments on my card projects…. I do more card making (as it is my main hobby) than I do scrapbook pages, but it is always great to learn from Cassel’s tutorials and master classes as the techniques can be applied to both areas and they also help me to learn and become a little more confident in using PSP…. look forward to seeing you lab module projects…
best of wishes,
Dawn.April 9, 2018 at 9:39 am #18226
I am really glad to see how the techniques illustrated for one type of project (scrapbooking) are used in different types. It shows how PSP is versatile!
Great work Dawn. Those cards look so delicate!April 9, 2018 at 8:48 pm #18236Teri CleavelandParticipant
This month we are having kids! Two does have delivered already. Three of the 5 lived. Have two more does pregnant. One is injured and will probably have to be put down after she gives birth. Really sad.
Milkshake was the first to deliver… of course in the middle of the night!April 9, 2018 at 10:53 pm #18239Teri CleavelandParticipant
Here’s Chocolate and her little guy. So said to see her lose the other little buck and a doeling.
I don’t have many farm related elements 🙁April 10, 2018 at 6:54 am #18241
Lovely baby kids Teri, I now want them. I would have nowhere to put them and they would probably eat my garden but they are so cute.April 10, 2018 at 9:09 am #18243
Dawn, those cards are stunning. Your roses are absolutely beautiful. The two fonts you used in the first card really complimented each other. Font pairing is a difficult thing to get right. That’s why I’m always looking for font duos.
Teri, they are so precious. Like Sheila, I want one, too, but I don’t think they’re allowed in the suburbs of NY. LOL
I just finished Cassel’s Peek-a-Boo webinar. Great stuff in there. I decided to have a little fun with the keyhole project. Like I said on the FB Scrapbooking with PSP page, I think a more appropriate name for this class would have been Stalking 101! Peeking through windows, branches, and fences…my goodness. 🙂April 10, 2018 at 11:42 am #18244
Terri, they are soooo cute!
Michele, the peek-a-boo was another great class from Cassel, and I will give it a try sometime later… For some reason, I cannot see your image bigger when I click on it.April 10, 2018 at 5:13 pm #18248
Cassel Thank you so much for your kind comments on my cards. I appreciate all you do in helping me continue to explore the many uses PSP has to offer in my craftwork via all the tutorials and classes.
Terri, lovely photos and I agree they are very cute.
Michele, Thank you also for your comments on my cards. The sentiments are purchased digi stamps so I don’t know what the fonts are however I do like to play with fonts a bit myself to achieve a similar effect….. Your image above is really cute also.. a great hey hole effect.
Dawn.April 12, 2018 at 6:19 am #18264
Remember Cassel’s Love Story Challenge back in February? I thought the Day One project was perfect for my gaming group’s daily theme today, Modern Romance. I took the one I made for the challenge and made some changes. I never would have been able to achieve this in the few hours I have to make my group’s picture every day. The font is MalemDiwa that I got for free from FontBundles. The hearts decal next to the text was also a freebie from a set of elements from Creative Fabrica. The heart frame I made with a PSP preset shape. And the handsome couple are characters from the game. :pApril 12, 2018 at 6:47 am #18265NewPeaches17Participant
I just love them roses images you did.
ChristineApril 12, 2018 at 7:11 am #18269
Michele, the watercolor flowers background you made back then is beautiful, and the hearts decal and frame are the perfect addition to the new layout… love the font too.April 12, 2018 at 7:16 am #18270
Thanks so much Cristina. I have so many watercolor floral elements that I just can’t remember where I got those from. It might even have been a free paper I got. I tried looking earlier, but it would have taken more time than I wanted to spend. I really need to keep better notes on my projects. I always think I’m going to remember things. Ha!April 12, 2018 at 8:07 am #18273
Hello Christine and Thank You ! …your kind comment on my rose cards is appreciated.
Dawn.April 12, 2018 at 8:24 am #18274
Hello Michele, your pages are beautiful….. .. your Mum’s page was beautiful when I first saw it in the challenge and still is…. the changes you have made are great for your theme of Modern Romance… lovely floral paper and I also like the font… it has a happy feel to it.
all the best,
Dawn.April 12, 2018 at 11:24 am #18275
Fabulous work Ladies. Love everything.

Welcome, Rae. Those pages make me smile. If these are among your first scrapbooking pages, they are pretty good! Do you have many farm-related photos to showcase?April 16, 2018 at 8:01 pm #18314redradarParticipant
Just a few. When they retired my folks used to have a ranch in Oregon so I have some old pictures I took back then that are fun to revisit for the farm project.April 17, 2018 at 4:57 am #18315
Rae, those are wonderful layouts. What a great experience the ranch must have been.
I’m glad so many of you enjoyed how I breathed new life into an older project. For those of you who liked the font, it’s called MalemDiwa and I got it in a free font bundle from Creative Fabrica last month. I loved that it came with a lot of PUA’s. The freebies from so many places are usually just demo copies.
~ MicheleApril 22, 2018 at 4:40 am #18372
Rae, great layouts, and memories!
I still didn’t make anything… I wanted to practice the techniques from the LAB but I was finishing other layouts and didn’t have the time… hopefully this week. 🙂April 22, 2018 at 8:38 am #18377
Rae, your pages are great and really suit the farm theme.
Dawn.April 23, 2018 at 7:07 am #18389
I’m going to need some time to digest everything I learned this weekend from the free Lab tutorials. Felt like I was cramming for finals, but in a subject that I really love.
In the meantime, I had some fun with the kaleidoscope effect for the background of my gaming group’s theme today. The face is from my avatar in the game. I used a circular selection to crop her and turned her into a sticker thanks to Cassel’s tips and tutorials section of the blog. (It’s very helpful when she includes the tips in her newsletters.) I used a preset shape for the “petals” around her face then duplicated and resized each subsequent copy by 105%. They all started out as white until I changed the blend mode on every other one to overlay. The font is Mister Froggie. Finally, the framing was made by increasing my image size several different times and alternating flat thin white layers with increasingly larger layers that I filled with the background pattern to which I applied an inner bevel. Whew. Sometimes I can’t believe what can be accomplished in just an hour or two while watching TV if I get inspired. Other days, I can’t come up with any new ideas. Then again, today’s theme, Festival of Colors lent itself to inspiration.
~ MicheleApril 23, 2018 at 5:03 pm #18391
Hello Michele, your page is very colourful, I like the way your background turned out with the kaleidoscope and the petal shape you have created around her face… a nice effect…. thanks for sharing how you did that ….. inspiration can come from many areas… I also can be watching TV and all of a sudden get an idea for a card and feel the need to go and make it …thinking I leave the TV on in the background but soon forget it is on…. I get so involved with my project….
Dawn.April 24, 2018 at 7:00 am #18392
Hi, Michele, your layout is very nice, colorful and I like very much the kaleidoscope effect for the background. The whole page with different techniques came out great
The Lab tutorials, not mentioning the webinars, are really great. They always bring something new and creative… I learn a lot with them and also with the tips shared here in the Forum.
I guess all of us have days that we struggle to come up with something… and like Dawn said, other days the ideas come from nowhere. 🙂April 24, 2018 at 7:09 am #18393
Thanks so much, Dawn and Cristina. <3
