Show off what you are working on in February, be it a scrapbook page, a tutorial, or anything else you want
We are curious and want to see, and get inspireFebruary 4, 2018 at 5:03 pm #16978
inspiration for these 2 card fronts for a little girl birthday greeting came from a free tutorial by Tish at pspmadeez called Good Morning Music and the music note tube was provided in a zip file. I didn’t have some of the filters she used in the tutorial so I created mine a bit different. I used free poser images from pannsplace and I created a spiky halo effect from them for the background on both cards. also added a psp rose tube to put in the hand of the fairy girl poser.
best wishes everyone,

This is the layout I made to practice the 3 tutorials from the LAB 8 Module 02 (Arrow Pattern, Shaped Text, and Word Frame).
I used elements from Kristin Aagard “Great Outdoors” kit.
In order for me to have different patterns for each letter of the word (place) Farchant, I used a technique that I’ve learned with one of Cassel’s webinars.February 10, 2018 at 1:25 am #17023
Hi Cristina! your page layout looks great. I love how you did the tutorials from the lab module. the word frame and the Farchant word look terrific and catches the eye….. I have yet to try those 2 tutorials…..

Hi Dawn! 🙂
Thank you so much for your kind comment on my layout! <3February 12, 2018 at 1:51 am #17077
another card that I have finished…….I have used Cassel’s Twine Wood frame freebie and Edge Font 2 Matt freebie. the seed bead hearts made with Cassel’s seed bead tube with the help of the vector tube script. .. ribbon made with one of Cassel’s scripts. the coloured digital owl image is a freebie from Beccys Place here in Australia.

I finally used Cassel’s mask that she gave us a while ago to make a birthday card today. It gives such a pretty effect. I put a white layer underneath the mask group. Then I dragged the corners of the mask to show more of the flower pic. Also added some extra layers/effects for framing. Wish I could say I took the pic, but I didn’t. Lily of the valley, so pretty yet so deadly.February 20, 2018 at 6:52 pm #17510
Reading the latest tips tutorial on making your own preset shapes jogged my memory that I had a script by Suz Shook to make preset shapes from Dingbats. So I had two differing topics to have a play with. I made a preset shape by vector tracing around a fushia which turned out well. I then used the script with dingbats and that worked really well but restricted to the actual Dingbat image.
Tonight I have been playing and I drew out a corner Dingbat Preset shape, used Simple plugin top left mirror and turned it into a black and white image, inverted it and then use Cassels Bronzit script. It resulted in a image that looked 3D. I used a photo of my Gt Gt Grandfather, used a sepia effect and Cassels Photo Mask script <span style=”color: #333333; font-style: normal; font-weight: 400;”>on it</span>. I love the effect and think I am going to use this technique on other old photos I have. Anyway TFL.

Dawn, your card is lovely. Everything fits so well together… I love the owl image 🙂
Michele, this is also a lovely birthday card. I love the colors, the photo and the mask you used.
Sheila, it is amazing your project. It looks so real! It took many steps to make it but well worth the effort.
Great work, ladies!February 22, 2018 at 1:55 pm #17571
Thank you Christina i just love to play. Also, well done everybody, some great works of art being done.
Sheila xFebruary 22, 2018 at 9:24 pm #17592
Cristina Thanks so much for your kind comments on my owl card … I especially enjoy doing cards.
Michele, your card is lovely I also love the colours you have used and yes Cassels freebie mask does give a pretty effect.
Sheila, thanks for sharing how you did your project. I quite like what you have achieved and the effect is really interesting… I might give it a try…. and by the way some time ago you posted a project of glittered edge flowers that you made…. I forgot to say thanks for sharing at that time I think …… so anyway I gave it a try and I am reasonably happy with my result….. so thank you very much for sharing the idea. … I also like to try and make my own flower elements… I enjoyed making a flower using Cassels petal tube.

Thank you Dawn and you are welcome. I haven’t participated on here as much as I would like to as I have had cataract surgery and another to come next week. I have also made/put together a 100 wedding invites for my grandsons wedding this coming May. They took some time to do as I made all the paper roses to go on them, and the only thing I used PSP for was the inserts. Will post a piccie at some stage. Now I have bunting to make and favour boxes to finish. Although I love doing these things, all I can say is never again, too much for one person to do.
Sheila xFebruary 25, 2018 at 1:40 pm #17654
Sheila, first of all, I want to wish you a speedy recovery from your cataract surgery.
About the wedding invitations, I am sure they will be beautiful and your grandsons will be very happy to have something so special done by you. But I have to agree that is a lot for one person. 🙂February 25, 2018 at 5:47 pm #17669
Sheila, I also hope your cataract surgery goes well for you. wow making that number of paper roses would have taken some time but I bet they look very pretty…. I will also be making some for a batch of cards I am giving as a gift…. I am sure your efforts will be appreciated as it is so nice to have something hand made for those special occasions.

I should work on modul 2 in the Basic scrapbooking, then thought I should try to make my own rick rack bands. I made some and suddenly my work was far from the lesson. The rick rac with 3 colors are my own, made after Your tutorial. The boy, lavvo (sami tent), the reindeer antlets and the hats are from my own picures.

All comments are welcome, is this too busy?February 26, 2018 at 3:34 am #17679
Hi Britt, I like your page and don’t think the layout is too busy. I like the colors, the theme and the ricrac you made. Every one of us has a different style and we can only be true to ourselves. Hopefully, we will see more of your layouts. 🙂February 26, 2018 at 4:53 am #17680
hello Britt…… I like your page to and I also don’t think it is too busy, I agree with Cristina’s comment, as we do all have different styles of creativity and it is always nice to see everyone’s layouts . I to have started out on a particular tutorial and ended up with something different but that is the joy of it all. tutorials are only a guide to start us on our way.
Dawn.February 28, 2018 at 11:17 am #17722
I’m putting what I learned from the masks class to use. It took me a long time to figure out how to do it, and I’m not even sure that I did it correctly, but I think it was a success. Heather said she’d like to learn to surf someday so I thought I would give her a little push on her birthday.
I like your layout, Britt. I agree with the others that everyone has their own style. If you’re honestly looking for suggestions, maybe the hats on the top make it a little busy. I think without them “Sami Boy” would would be able to shine more and be the true star that he obviously is in your life. The ricrac you made is very cool; I’m going to have to learn to do that.February 28, 2018 at 4:41 pm #17724
Hello Michele, your birthday card is really nice .. you have achieved a great effect.!….
Dawn.March 2, 2018 at 8:40 am #17741
Thanks so much, Dawn <3
The theme for my gaming group (Fabulous Divas) today was “Welcome March.” Nothing stood out in my mind about March except early crocuses if the weather is unseasonably warm. I used the Change to Target Brush tool quite a bit to get my purples and yellows on most of the elements I used.
