It is a new month and new projects.
Show off what you are working on in November, be it a scrapbook page, a collage, a tutorial, or anything else you want.
We are curious and want to see, learn, and get inspired.
These threads are quickly becoming a fantastic source of inspiration, support, and friendship. Keep them coming!
Remember to size down your image to about 600×600 pixels and save in jpg format before posting it.
Here are a few guidelines for everyone:
November 1, 2021 at 10:32 pm #67063
- when you post a project, give as much information on your sources or techniques used. It will help others who are curious and would like to do the same.
- if someone uses something that you like on their page, ask where they got it. Sometimes, you can go get it too and it will be better quality than trying to extract it (as it would have been resized to post in the forum anyways).
- if it is something that they did from scratch, ask how they did it. It would be so helpful to everyone!
- if you like a photo and would like to “play with it”, ALWAYS ask permission. Sometimes, there are some limitations and the person is not allowed to let others use it. Don’t get them in trouble. Usually, people are happy to say yes (if they can) when you ask politely. And if you get permission, you might get better quality than on a resized image anyways.
I wasn’t happy with the previous layout so I redid it. This is the result.November 3, 2021 at 4:46 pm #67122
I know the calendars were started last month, but I only now finished my other 2. In the end it was a lot of work, especially the embellishments and backgrounds because I want them to be fitting to the month. I now have to give them a last check and then I can print them, that will take some time too. I’ll upload some of each calendar and as Annie always says: thanks for taking a peak.November 4, 2021 at 3:25 pm #67203
Inspired by the diamond in the center of Cassel’s freebie, I decided to create a series of masks using the diamond shape. Also inspired by Michelle who uses multiple copies of the same picture in some of her layouts (thanks for the inspiration, Michelle), I used multiple copies of the diamond mask and the same photo of the prairie I took on one of my trips. The result is shown here. I learned a few things about masks, creating brushes, creating shapes also. The backgrounds are mine and I used the texture effect shades on the light blue one. For the elements: the butterfly is a colorized version of one in ML’s Pretty things kit and the grasses are from PSBT-July DBMagnolia. The font is a PSP one using the dark blue of the bottom background paper. This was a load of fun and a great learning experience – thanks Cassel and Michelle for the inspirations – thank you Cassel for your great teaching on all aspects of PSP! (I had to stop on the video – at least for a few days)November 5, 2021 at 5:12 am #67226
I’m very happy to know that I inspired you, Mary. It looks wonderful. I also love what you did with Cassel’s frame.
Lovely calendar pages, Corrie. What font did you use for July and September? It’s very pretty.

Michele thank you. The font is dandelion, it’s lovely and comes with extra glyphs. I found it very fitting for the flower calendar and used it on all the months. I think I got it as a freebie by Creative Fabrica, almost all my fonts are from them!November 5, 2021 at 7:57 pm #67250cindy harrisParticipant

Inspired by Cassel’s diamond slats… I put each slat on a new layer then used clip to it to put photos of my parents from WWII in the slats. Mostly my Dad but my Mom is in two of them. My Dad was a pilot and my Mom was a nurse. They met in the service and married.November 5, 2021 at 11:14 pm #67287
Also inspired by Cassel’s diamond slats, this is a photo of the church where the service was held for my mother’s funeral. She lived a good long life (95) and is probably the best person I ever knew.November 5, 2021 at 11:17 pm #67289
Again, my Mom in diamond slats…. a very versatile script.November 6, 2021 at 8:37 am #67290Susan EwartParticipant
Lynda and Mary, beautiful work with the slats. I downloaded the freebie and bought the script but havent tried it yet. You’ve given me inspiration and ideas on what types of photo’s to use.November 6, 2021 at 9:54 am #67291
Look at how many people you inspired, Carole!
Beautiful work, Lynda. You definitely displayed the versatility of the script.November 6, 2021 at 10:03 am #67293
On a completely different note, here’s what I did with Cassel’s Fanned Photo Collage freebie from a few years ago (it has a corresponding a script). I knew I would eventually find the perfect project for it. I found a bunch of random pics through Google and the font is Alex Brush.November 6, 2021 at 10:30 am #67295
Thanks Susan and Michelle… I do find the diamond slat script fascinating.
We are on the road so most of the time I don’t have an opportunity or a connection to do much. We did buy a hot spot at Best Buy yesterday. Seems to work pretty well. The little box was $50 and it is pay as you go, so you can choose your 30 day plan.
I haven’t been able to work on the scripting class but I will catch up when we settle someplace for a longer period of time. We expect to be in Pahrump, Nevada for 2 months. I signed up for the Scrap by Number…We’ll see how that goes.

Once again, I am blown away by the amazing creativity here! I love all the slat work…gives me lots of ideas. I have this script on my wishlist. Michelle, I love that template! I think I also have the script…need to use it more!November 6, 2021 at 3:29 pm #67307
This is a scrap page using Elif Sahin’s Frame Shadow Effect on DigitalScrapbook.com
I arranged her frames and turned them into masks, added photosNovember 6, 2021 at 3:46 pm #67308
Beautiful work from all of you and I have put the Diamond Slat script on my wishlist, which is growing by the week! Lynda nice to see you here again, have a safe roadtrip!
I will give the freebie with the slats a go after I’m finished with printing all my calendars. One is done now and looks great! I will have to buy some cardboard or very thick paper for the back and see if the printshop can do a spiral binding for me.November 6, 2021 at 6:59 pm #67312
Template from this months Lab.November 7, 2021 at 11:11 am #67314
I’m still having fun – can’t seem to stop! Michelle, you are such an inspiration! This is a picture I took in Louisianna several years ago – can’t believe how time flies! This time I used picture in picture instead of masks.November 8, 2021 at 5:22 am #67329
Mary, you are too sweet. <3
I like what you did, Lynda. I just downloaded those frames to see what I can do with them.November 8, 2021 at 5:30 am #67331
I’ve always wanted to try hanging pics in my layout, but you inspired me to finally do it, Bonnie. Wish I’d had time enough to do more “relaxed” ropes, but this is my result. I used a rope picture tube and a clothespin from PixelScrapper.November 8, 2021 at 8:09 am #67334
Michele, it’s great just the way it is. You have such unique ideas.November 8, 2021 at 12:22 pm #67341
Aw, thanks so much, Bonnie. You’re a sweetheart.November 8, 2021 at 4:47 pm #67350
Bonnie, Michele great use of that template from this month’s Lab. I was wondering what to do with it and I still have no idea, but I have enough other thing going for X-mas. I have made some snowglobes from the Christmas 4 masterclass. I have used one for the Freebie Challenge and will use the others probably one cards, I had a lot of fun making them. Thanks to Carole for that masterclass!November 8, 2021 at 5:31 pm #67355
finally got a bit of time to get to the latest master class. Very interesting, I learned a few new things about vector layers. This is pretty much a copy of what Cassel was doing so really nothing new.November 9, 2021 at 5:26 am #67371CristinaParticipant
I’ve not been very active in the “What are you working on” thread in the last couple of months… But, here and there, I peek in, so I know I’ve been missing all the great stuff you all had posted… Hopefully, I will join you after the course.
Great job, my friends!November 9, 2021 at 11:10 am #67381MinkaParticipant
Nice to see everyone again. Loads of great stuff to look at. My company has headed back north to the cold. I do miss them … but not the cold! Someone sent me a graphic of a barn for autumn and I had fun playing with it with Carole’s text shaping script. Just sharing as I haven’t really had time to play with much else. Thanks for all the lovelies to look at!November 9, 2021 at 2:05 pm #67394trish williamsParticipant
regarding this weekend webinar I had a free offer came thru you may be interested in, I am sure someones watching what I doing, just a coincidence. Here is the site
its a large file but once downloaded each subject is in various formats, png, svg, icon, and ico (which I haven’t heard of and doesn’t open on in Paintshop) each come in 3 sizes, so you can have fun wasting your time deleting those you don’t need
Here are some examples, as you can see, I had nothing better to do, these are the largest size 512 on a 3000 background sized down to 600 the small bowl is the smallest 64 of the 3 sizes and each comes as coloured, solid and outline.November 9, 2021 at 11:35 pm #67416Susan EwartParticipant
Wow! so much beautiful and inspiring work from everyone. I just bought the scales script and what fun it is. I’m embarrassed to say I was a little afraid of scripts but this one practically took me by the hand and walked me through it. It was so easy and fun to try out different choices. here are some I did. I used the same color and selected a black outline and one with a white outline and they sure look different. the other one I chose a 45 degree angle and made it slightly larger.November 10, 2021 at 5:42 pm #67435
The last masterclass about numbers was just in time for me to do something for our 50th wedding anniversary next week. I have in my fonts some that came with extra’s and a couple with icons. I mostly used the Material Design Icons font and Christmas extra font. If I use my fontviewer I can select an icon and then save it as a PNG, so no problem with typing a specific number etc. For the text I used Bahnschrift which I find very easy to read and Mawarna Monogram for our initials. Some icons golden and the others red. By the way the number on the coffeecups is and estimated guess, the rest is pretty accurate,
