<span style=”color: #1d2129; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-style: normal; font-weight: 400; white-space: pre-wrap;”>I tried a mask! I used two drop shadows (plus and minus) on it. I don’t know exactly what I was going for, but I kind of liked the effect. The original pic was a freebie from Alex Green Art. I cropped the flowers out of it and flood filled the mask layer. The font is Loveya Script.</span>January 22, 2018 at 1:18 pm #16786
This is the layout I made to practice the Lab8-01 Techniques: Plaid4 – Paper Cutout – Wood Burning. Great tutorials as always!
Shadowing is something I am still learning and I am never sure if it is correct.
I used Cassel’s Wooden Alphabet & Digits freebie. I will try and see if I can come up with something for the Word Challenge – BetweenJanuary 22, 2018 at 1:25 pm #16787
Lovely layout, Michele! I love the watercolor photo (looks like at least), the colors and the mask you made. It gave a depth look.
And what a cute font with the little hearts! Great card!January 23, 2018 at 2:55 am #16791
Cristina, Thank You very much for your kind comments on the Friend card I made… The layout you made along with the elements you made look great on your snapshots of the forest page. I hope you both enjoyed your day out.. A lovely page to add to the family memories album.
Michele, Thank you also for your kind comments on my friend card…. you asked about the background under the circle with the flower if I made it… no I didn’t.. the rose embossed overlay is from a purchased kit that is no longer available as far as I know as the site closed last year …. Your project above looks great… the photo, font, and the effect you have achieved make a lovely cheerful card!
best wishes to you both,

Dawn, thank you for commenting on my layout! 🙂 <3January 27, 2018 at 7:49 am #16818
I just watched part of the Framing 101 tutorial again. While I always try to match Cassel’s projects on my first run through, I decided to go a little more rustic on my second try. I added a free image from Unsplash.

Marlene, Thank you for your lovely card. The poem is beautiful!….
to everyone who has given me such thoughtful messages…… below is my note to you.January 29, 2018 at 12:38 am #16874Marlene LinghamParticipant
Dawn I’m glad you liked the card, I forgot to say that the elements were from a set called A Mother’s Love Combo (DBTHans). The poem I found online.
My mother died in 2005, two days after her 94th Birthday (she was born on 11th November 1911!). I had been lucky enough to see her in the July of that year. As a sign of sympathy two of my friends gave me a Mother’s Love rose. We dug a small bit of garden and planted the rose at the approximate time her funeral was taking place in England (10.30 pm our time). Two weeks later my sisters took her ashes to where my father’s ashes were – and would you believe that on the same day the first rose actually bloomed! Each November I now have a wonderful display of roses to remind me of my Mum.January 29, 2018 at 9:00 am #16878
Dawn, the card you’ve created is beautiful. Like I said it before, your mom was a lovely lady.
Marlene, there are things that happen that we just cannot explain. This is a beautiful rose!January 29, 2018 at 10:34 pm #16890
Thank you Cristina ….. I hope the days are becoming easier for you to and memories for you bring joy to your heart.
Marlene what a wonderful way to remember your Mum. the roses would look lovely blooming in November.
I have done another card to add to my collection that I am giving to my sister-in-law. (it is taking awhile because I want to fill a box that I have) something for the men in the family and for any occasion….. this a purchased coloured digital stamp and sentiment from a set called the 3 tenors from Beccy’s Place here in Australia. I have added Cassel’s music tube and Corner punch from set C and the plaid paper I made some time ago.

Love the kitties, Dawn.
Your thank you card is just lovely; it brought tears to my eyes.January 30, 2018 at 1:44 pm #16898
Dawn, thank you <3 <3
Your card is so cute! I love it!January 31, 2018 at 5:01 pm #16911
Hello Cristina and Michele, thank you both for your comments on my any occasion card. I quite like this little set of digital stamps I purchased and I am hoping it will bring a bit of cheer to whoever receives it.
best wishes to you both,

I wanted to give the Framing 101 class another look before it disappears. These are my second attempts at each of the three methods Cassel taught us. Hopefully the notes I took were complete enough so I can use what I’ve learned going forward. I added some stock photos after the fact. In hindsight I probably should have picked the photos first. :pFebruary 4, 2018 at 3:46 pm #16969
very nice frames Michele. I must give these styles of frames a try. the video for the class was really good.
Dawn.February 5, 2018 at 8:54 am #16981
Michele, very nice frames. I love the wood frame!February 5, 2018 at 9:36 am #16983
Dawn, the middle one was very difficult for me to do. I have OCD and it took me soooo long to get it just the way I wanted it. To tell you the truth, I never really got it exactly how I wanted it, but sometimes I just have to smack myself upside the head and say STOP!
Cristina, I wanted to go for a rustic look which I think I achieved.
