Bonnie, what wonderful layouts and I do love hearing about pickle ball. It is so special that you created a page using Dayana’s chalk drawing. We all need to take a step back and enjoy the Simple Pleasures. Fabulous title work. Sweet Summer Days also has great title work and I really like how the colors of the kit are picked up in the layout. Thank you for the sweet words.
Lynda, Love the background you used with your heart mask. Great job. You did wonderfully with the shoe present. Guess I need to go get it. And then I see the sneakers. Don’t know which I like best, so I’ll take one pair of each. Thank you for your kind words.
Betty, I didn’t stay awake either, but I must say your layout is awesome. I like how you mixed different kits for the final product.July 11, 2020 at 11:57 pm #44639
hello to everyone,
Cristina I am glad to hear you are doing well.
Lynda.. you did great work with those shoe shapes.
Betsy very nice moon page.
Bonnie what a joy that must have been for you to arrive home and find that lovely message on your driveway. .. also nice work on those pickleball memory pages
Michele thank you for your kind thoughts.

Made this for my gaming group today. Used a bunch of elements from AnnieC Digitals contribution to the August 2019 blog train, Forever in Blue Jeans. The font is VTKS Core, free from 1001Fonts.July 15, 2020 at 9:36 am #44843Betsy DavisParticipant
Thank you Lynda and Bonnie.
I do hope to put some more projects on here, but right now we are trying to find a new home. Quite stressful! The market is crazy in our area. Houses are selling in hours which isn’t giving us much time to look!
Hopefully soon I’ll be able to put some “moving to a new home” pages on.July 15, 2020 at 9:58 am #44845
Betsy, beautiful picture of the moon, and you created a very nice layout with it.
Lynda, I love how you created the sneakers. They look great.
Bonnie, what a lovely message. Simple pleasures… sometimes they are the ones we remember the most.
Michele, great layout. Nice idea to use the yellowish color of the seam for the title. It really stands out.July 15, 2020 at 10:12 am #44847
Thanks, Cristina. I actually pulled the color from the illustration and recolored some of the elements to match.
Good luck, Betsy. This is a heck of a time to be house hunting.July 15, 2020 at 10:14 am #44848
Here is the layout I created to practice the tutorials from the Lab10-Module 6 (Alphabet beads – Honeycombs – Netting2).
Again I used the Lab10-Module 2 template but tweaked it to fit my needs.
Bow: Cassel’s script Bow6… I love to see those bows scripts running!
I added two elements from the “Seaside” AddOn by Palvinka.
Fonts: Evertone Script – Euphorigenic SJuly 15, 2020 at 12:18 pm #44850
Michele, Love your retro denim
Cristina, I agree, the bow scripts are a wonder to watch. 🙂 Nice layout!July 16, 2020 at 4:18 am #44894
Thanks, Lynda! About Carole’s bow scripts, I love to watch how the pieces are cut, turned, moved around… I always think that she had to envision this first and then translated all of that into commands/actions. It is really impressive!July 16, 2020 at 6:19 am #44897
hello Michele you created a great page for your gaming group theme and the font you chose fits it really well.
hello Cristina your photos look great with this template… looks like it was a nice part of the beach to take a pleasant walk and relax…. also love your idea to use the alphabet beads for the title.. looks great.
always best wishes to you both,
Dawn.July 16, 2020 at 7:11 am #44898
Hello, dear Dawn 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind comment… It was really a nice beach, and very few people were there at that time of the year, which made it even better. 😉July 16, 2020 at 8:59 am #44902
Great layout, Cristina. I love how you split some of those photos into multiple frames.
Thanks for the compliment, Lynda.
Dawn, it’s funny because I had just downloaded that font for a different project the day before, but used a different one. Sometimes the timing just works.
xoxoxo to allJuly 16, 2020 at 4:06 pm #44919July 16, 2020 at 6:23 pm #44927
OMG, totally know what you are feeling. We also are looking to buy a house and it is stressful. The market is crazy. We decided to wait until spring or add onto our house to accommodate my husbands physical issues. We didn’t want to be rushed into something we would be unhappy with as it’s the last house we will be purchasing. I guess we’ll see what happens.
Good Luck to you. I hope you find what you are looking for. Don’t settle!July 17, 2020 at 4:39 am #44948
Michele, thanks for your kind comment! 🙂
I forgot to mention, but Dawn reminded me of the font! I have not only downloaded the one you mentioned, VTKS Core but others of the same VTKS Family, like VTKS Choice – Bold and Cool – Propriedade… I thought I was getting better from this… 😀
Lynda, these Lab tutorials look so interesting. I like the “Negative Effect” and the different options you showcased. I also want to give it a try, but first I have to find photos that I think will fit the tutorials, and then… the papers, elements and so on. 🙂July 17, 2020 at 9:47 am #44960
Actually the negative effect and the clapperboard do not require any papers or elements. The layered effect , you can use anything really, as the interior of the number or other vector you choose. I had some trouble with the layered effect. Not quite sure what I was doing wrong but I needed to adjust the number to the outline. I watched the tutorial a number of times and could not figure out what I was missing. I’ll try again when my brain clears. 🙂 By the way, if you haven’t already found hungry jpeg or pixel scrappers, they both offer freebees on a regular basis. Good luck!
LyndaJuly 17, 2020 at 1:34 pm #44981July 18, 2020 at 6:12 am #45024
I had a very positive reaction to your negative projects, Lynda. 🙂July 18, 2020 at 6:59 am #45025
Love your reply to negative projects…very clever girl. Thanks 😀July 18, 2020 at 11:09 am #45036
Had trouble getting the layered effect in the latest lab so I’ve been practicing. Decided to try a cursive font and this is the result. I used Cassel’s glitter for the pattern.July 18, 2020 at 12:50 pm #45051July 18, 2020 at 5:58 pm #45060July 18, 2020 at 7:51 pm #45063
hello Lynda you have achieved very nice results on all the lab projects you have posted over the last few days especially your garden filmstrip.. are the photos your photography ?.. well done.
Dawn.July 18, 2020 at 10:14 pm #45064
Thanks Dawn, Glad you liked my stuff. The photos are mine as are the plants…all from my yard , even the weeds. 🙂 Can’t seem to get rid of the dandelions although they make good macros.
I appreciate your generous commentsJuly 19, 2020 at 5:43 am #45080
Lynda, nice new additions! I like the black and white Negative Effect very much, and especially the Garden Film Strip. I haven’t tried the tutorials, so I wonder if I, too, will have issues with the layered effect.
When I mentioned in my last comment papers and elements, I was referring to my process of creation:
First, I choose photos that will be compatible with the tutorials. In the last LAB, there was netting, so I decided to look for pictures at the beach. After that, I look for papers and elements in my stash that will fit the photos and layout; sometimes, just what I create with the tutorials is enough and doesn’t need extra elements. But it is not every day that I am inspired, so it takes time. 😀
Thanks for the tip, I like PixelScraper very much and have a few of their freebies. 🙂July 19, 2020 at 8:01 am #45083
Keep them coming, Lynda. BTW, I really enjoyed using that filmstrip, too. I think it was quite a while ago if I’m not mistaken.July 19, 2020 at 8:22 am #45085
This was for my gaming group today. I stumbled upon a technique that, for me, was new. I was originally going to use the illustration as a frame for a collage so I selected each of the separate fashion pics separately, inverted the selection, contracted it, moved to the illustration layer, and hit delete. When I moved the illustration to the top and added a drop shadow, I did not like the result at all. After playing around a bit, I lowered the opacity on the illustration layer and added a white background as the bottom layer. To my surprise, the result was that the individual pics looked like I had framed each of them. I added a little drop shadow to each fashion pic and was finally happy. Now I’m sure this result can be achieved using different techniques. However, since I had no idea what I was going to do, it turned out to be a happy accident for me. Sometimes you don’t know where you’re going until you get there.July 19, 2020 at 10:12 am #45090
Thanks for the tips on how to start a project. I have no such discipline. I just kinda sit at the computer , put a line on the paper, so to speak, and hope something comes into my head. No process what so ever. I will have to try your method.
Most if not all the stuff I make I have no idea what to do with them. My big thing is photography and with this virus we are not getting out much. A person can only take so many photos of their backyard before it becomes redundant.
I’m grateful for Carole’s labs and lessons as it gives me something constructive to do and I actually learn all the little ins and outs of PSP.
Glad to see everyone’s posts. Always something good to see.July 19, 2020 at 6:53 pm #45146
hello Michele another great page for your group… … it is quite a happy feeling when something unexpected happens in our creativity … hope your unexpected result put a smile on your face.. it did on mine.
best wishes as always,
Dawn.July 19, 2020 at 7:53 pm #45157liberaParticipant
A lot of really cool works, plenty of so different techniques. WOW!!!
I was curious about the selective focus that Carole mentioned last week and followed the link to the tutorial on the blog. So I had to play a little bit and used the radial selection tool for the picture here.
