Love your layout, Bonnie. Those pictures are lovely and you let them speak for the page.
Trish, your Paris grunge page came out great. Still busy making papers, I see.
Thank you for your generosity, Annie, but what I downloaded was too “fuzzy.” The details got lost in the translation. You might just inspire me try try making my own once I’m out of my funk!
Dawn, it’s wonderful to see you here. I agree with Annie; you are a treasure.

Trish, Sharon, Bonnie, and Annie, I am amazed by your work! Papers, zipper, layout, templates… Amazing job, everyone!September 19, 2019 at 6:57 pm #34630
Michele, if you download the mask from the pop up view page you will then be able to use it as a pattern. I have been sizing my edge canvas image to 3600 x 300 (or whatever height the mask is) and then flood filling it with the mask pattern.
Add a new layer and in the layers palette drag it below the black and white layer then flood fill this layer with whatever pretty pattern you want the finished product to be.
Remaining on that layer I then go to layers – new mask layer – show all. Then activate the top black and white layer – ctrl A to select all – ctrl F to float and then drag the floating layer to just below the top layer of the group (not below the entire group).
Ctrl D to deselect.
Again activate the top black and white layer and delete this layer … voila! you have your edge.
I then merge the group, do something to the top edge for a slight contrast (such as adding noise) and then add a sticker bevel to the entire edge to lift it just a litte. A shadow to suit yourself.
This was definitely one of my favourite lessons by Cassel as it opens up all sorts of possibilities for creative work.
I hope this helps your creative spirit Michele! <3 ;DSeptember 20, 2019 at 4:55 am #34639ShirleyParticipant
A close friend recently lost everything in a house fire. She was pleased I had photos to print off for her from when the house was shifted to the site. I decided to put them together in a frame for her birthday next month. I had so much trouble with this tutorial in the double page project that I decided to use it again for revision , and pleased to say I sailed through much better. My daughter up cycles wooden items to a shabby chic look, so she is on the job with a soft green frame

Nicely done Shirley … I am sure your friend will be very appreciative. <3September 20, 2019 at 7:49 pm #34659
Thanks my lovely Dawn, very much appreciated. <3September 20, 2019 at 7:51 pm #34660
I enjoy viewing your birthday cards Trish … they always speak of lovely celebrations! <3September 20, 2019 at 7:57 pm #34661
Thanks Trish, very pleased you liked them my friend. <3September 21, 2019 at 7:56 am #34675
Wow, I am amazed by all the projects posted! Tons of creativity going on here; congrats to Sharon, Bonnie, Trish, and Annie. You all have created unique and lovely layouts, elements, and papers.
I am at a snail’s pace at the moment. I am not even going to try to catch up with all of you… Lost battle! 😀September 21, 2019 at 8:09 am #34676
Annie, you are such a sweetie. Thank you for explaining how to use your mask. Unfortunately, as I said, when I download (the pop-up view), the resulting file is very blurry.
Shirley, what a special gift for your friend. I’m so sorry to hear about her loss; she will treasure what you made for her.
Trish, I am gaining weight just looking at the goodies in your birthday pics!
(I hope I didn’t miss anyone.)

The papers and the bee are freebies from AnnieC Digitals. I’m sure you recognize Cass’s Floral Corner Brush used with the Eraser tool. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I LOVE THE CORNER BRUSHES!
The text (Stray Bullet Smooth font) ended up being a very happy accident. I tried several different methods including 1) Cass-GlitterSticker script, 2) creating text as a selection, and 3) the Word Sticker portion of Cass’s Lab 09 Mod 05. I don’t remember how many layers I ended up with (including drop shadows) and I kept turning them on and off to see which I liked best. At one point I got an unexpected result and Eureka! I ended up using a combination of all. Happy accidents are the best.
As Annie says, “thanks for peekin’.”
~ MicheleSeptember 21, 2019 at 7:04 pm #34689
Aw, so sorry Michele but I am comforted by the fact you will most likely have loads of fun creating your own … and frustrations of course … as you do! <3September 21, 2019 at 7:07 pm #34690
Oh Michele, I do love this result and I am sure Ronda will have a happy moment when she receives it … You Go Girl! <3September 21, 2019 at 7:11 pm #34691
Dear Cristina … don’t you remember that the snail can sometimes win the race! ;D Thanks dear friend, I always appreciate your comments. <3September 22, 2019 at 2:56 am #34692
Michele..love your card and I am sure it will give Ronda joy on her special day.
best wishes as always,

My basketball team at the National Senior Games.September 22, 2019 at 10:17 pm #34718Sharon WilkeParticipant
Bonnie, your tribute to basketball team is fantastic! Congratulations to all of you!!! I love how you placed the photo inside the state of Florida.
Dear Annie! You are such a delight! I absolutely love the edges you have created. I’m so happy to see that your computer was rescued.
I haven’t had much time this past week for graphics. Real world interferes like that sometimes. I did manage to create a manila folder and I’m happy about that. So here’s my tribute to the Manila folder!September 23, 2019 at 1:00 am #34719
Bonnie … clever work with this page my friend, effective placement of the photos and great use of the basketball!
Sharon, thank you very much my friend and I love your manila folders … smooth work, 🙂September 23, 2019 at 1:10 am #34721
This is my latest project. I found this delightful photo on Unsplash. It was taken by Vidar Nordli Mathisen and is of a window in Drobak, Norway. The background paper is my own creation, the title alpha is Cassel’s Old Book Alphabet, the flower element is one of a set I have had for a long time and the dandelion brush I made myself. Thanks for takin a peek!September 23, 2019 at 9:35 am #34725
Bonnie, I love how you used the state to place your pics. Congrats on the championship!
Sharon, those folders are so cool; very clever.
Annie, you cracked me up with this one. Unsplash is such a great place to find photos. I love what you did with this one.
~ MicheleSeptember 23, 2019 at 2:54 pm #34741
Michele, the card is just lovely. Like you, I love the corner punch brushes, and I don’t have this one yet!
Bonnie, very nice layout. I also love how you placed the photos. Great work.
Sharon, the manila folders look so real. Great job.
Annie, this snail here is not going to win any race any time soon! LOL But I love to see everybody’s projects with different techniques and styles… Your latest layout is another nice one; you have great talent to find amazing photos!September 23, 2019 at 6:47 pm #34746
Dear Michele, so pleased that you liked this one … it is a treasure of a photo which is why I had to make use of it, LOL! <3
