It is a new month and new projects.
Show off what you are working on in March, 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:

- 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 a better quality image than the resized image anyways.
Still playing with masks, this is the Extra from #7 turned sideways. Instead of a jagged edge, I used the eraser tool with the shift key down to create the “scalloped” edge on the mask. This is my granddaughter and great-grandson last summer in my youngest daughter’s pool. I love the color of the water and wanted to use it somehow in a layout. The background on the left is just a paper I had on hand and so is the lifesaver element. The smaller photos are just selected from the large one and mirrored. Once I was satisfied, I merged the small groups so I could apply subtle shadows. So, here’s Ilana & Logan – Summer of ’21.
Edit: Decided to revise the “lifesaver” graphic.

That’s a really cool layout Trish, it’s really interesting to look at all the details in it. Love what you did with the word SEA.

Lab 7 Mod 4. This Module teaches how to make a target and a bullet hole! I’m really not thinking in terms of bullets right now as enough are truly flying. So, what the world needs now is love, sweet love, that’s the only thing that there’s just too little of! True love makes us vulnerable to be hurt! But, also to experience joy! So my target centers on a beating heart at the center exposed by the bullet hole! Cupid of course many people think of for Valentine’s Day and finding one’s “True Love”. So … Font is from Creative Fabrica: Hesthia Austine. The cupid is from NicePng. The rest of the papers are mine. I experimented a lot with brushes for this lab and for the background paper.March 4, 2022 at 6:25 pm #73151
(#73140). That’s beautiful Mary. A sentiment we all need right now. Did the download (About the Imperial Water Dragon) I sent to you via Fb messenger get to you okay? I also posted two other pictures in the Masks forum for your perusal.March 4, 2022 at 9:56 pm #73167
Susan Ewart: No, I didn’t get a messenger. There is another Mary Solaas on facebook (a relative), my FB is Mary Lou Solaas. However, my email address is [email protected] if you want to send it there.March 5, 2022 at 9:54 pm #73250
Thank you, Susan, The Word SEA is from a kit xMarch 5, 2022 at 9:59 pm #73254March 5, 2022 at 10:03 pm #73256
another window challenge, picture from Unsplash, delected window image, then filled with elements from file, behind and infront of photo image, blended and added drop shadow to finish xMarch 6, 2022 at 12:43 am #73263
Hi Mary, (#73167) I just checked, I did it as download found in Messenger, on Facebook. It does have your picture on the page and your middle name. The file is 15 MB. I will try and send to your gmail account, but not sure if that’s too big to send. I sure hope I got you, or someone will be very confused. 🤷♀️😊March 6, 2022 at 2:53 pm #73279
Trish I like your notredam- window! Somewhere in my photo collection I have a stained glass window and maybe I’ll try to copy you, if you don’t mind.
I have been very quite of lately due to a domestic crises. Just after finishing the MasksWorkshop we discovered that we had a major problem with the floor in the entrance hall. It was wet after all the heavy storms and rains we have had and this wetness was spreading underneath the laminate flooring. So a part of that flooring had to be removed. Besides that the the floor on another spot is wet too and the pressure for the underfloor heating is going back….. Tomorrow morning a company is coming to measure if there is a leak, which means we are without heating for 2 days now because the floor has to cool down before they are able to measure! So fingers crossed! It means that I haven’t had time or energy left for scrapping.
See you all in the masterclass of tonightMarch 6, 2022 at 5:09 pm #73288
Hi Corrie, I got that from Unsplash a while back, if you can’t find another your welcome to use that one be great to see what you can make out of it.

Trish sorry to hear that the 4th covid injection was a bad one. I’ll probably get mine later this month, but I have never had a problem with the other 3. Lovely beautyful you mask!March 6, 2022 at 7:33 pm #73293
Hi Corrie, I don’t know if its because I had bad Covid Christmas before last, still haven’t cleared of all the symptoms, the first 3 injections didn’t have any effects, but the 4th left me with a really bad headache and neck that didn’t want to support my head, everywhere ached like a really bad flu, felt sick, had the shivers then the sweats, breathing was very difficult, it’s been a week, and still hasn’t cleared up, and I can lift my arms now, just an excuse to stay in bed. I am the only one I know that has had a reaction, I had a pneumonia injection at the same time, I wonder if that had anything to do with it. xxMarch 6, 2022 at 8:34 pm #73295March 6, 2022 at 11:09 pm #73307
Trish, so sorry to hear about your reaction to your booster. That is awful. I hope you start to feel better soon. Your “Beautiful You” is stunning. I love your color palette and well, everything about it. Your pages are so diverse it’s really exciting to see what you will create next.March 7, 2022 at 1:23 am #73317
Just a quickie. I did buy Filter Forge 11. That’s one of the textures for a background. layout is from one of the labs that I put in my stash. snowflakes from PSP paint brush. textured frames. That new font freebie from Creative Fabrica.March 7, 2022 at 11:03 pm #73371
And now on to Lab 7 Mod 5. Papers, mask, are my own. Requirements: paint splatter, paint streaks, doodle frame. I made the mask from various brushes on a rectangle; put a small paper behind the picture and put the doodle frame on it and colored it dark blue; merged the group (mask and picture), then merged the group with the small paper and the doodle frame so that I could maneuver them together. The font is Brush455BT.March 8, 2022 at 5:44 am #73374PirkkoParticipant
Trish : your page #73288 is so beautiful – did you use some tutorial; it would be nice to know, what it was 🙂

Hi Trish, hope you are feeling at least a bit better by now and yes I think your other injection had someting to do with it. I heard some similar stories over here too, All the best
Oh my floor problem is almost fixed now, tomorrow the last day with the cleaning up after the repairs and hopefully that’s the last of it.March 8, 2022 at 8:27 pm #73424
Thank you Pirkko, its a mixture, the background is a mask over 2 colored background sheets, the 2 flowers and butterfly from my stock from various sources the bottle and watch are from I think 2 different kits, I never buy or use set kits, only element packs, most come from various free png sites and pixel shapers who I have an account with. If you would like to try the mask message me your email and Ill try to send it to you .
HI Corrie, please to here your floor problems solved xMarch 9, 2022 at 9:28 am #73433
I’m not a scrapbooker but using techniques to brighten a website on family history. So information is the priority but the graphics are decoration . This is 1 of a set of 5 that fade from one to the other. It was created using some Cassel Creations scripts. The world map was created using Copper It but not in one go… to keep some of the detail I divided up the image into components and ran it on them individually or else whole continents or islands disappear. The map of Ireland on the left uses Wood Puzzle 3. I wanted something decorative and thematic; I didn’t want something accurate in detail as visitors can find that for themselves, just something to take away from the stuffy research lists a little.March 9, 2022 at 9:34 am #73435
Website Leaderboard: 2 of 5.
This uses a variety of script and is more a practice session for entering snippets of text. The Custom Coin took a little while to get what I wanted. The image can be enlarged but I have to work on the fact that, on-line, it is initially seen much smaller.March 9, 2022 at 9:39 am #73437
Website Leaderboard 3 of 5:
This one uses another Cassel Creations script for the Wooden Puzzle 2. To practice I tried to repeat the theme of the freebie but with slight variations for the low height base. The text on the tab, by the way, is cut away to reveal the website background, then each other tab is made more transparent to highlight the image in view.March 9, 2022 at 9:43 am #73439
Website Leaderboard 4 of 5:
This one uses another Cassel Creations Word Painting script over a flag for the background. My equivalent of your scrapbook photos is my postcard collection. These are just simply stuck on top of the background. I tried some tape effects but not too happy with that. The top right postcard back has a postage stamp made with a script and a date stamp script.March 9, 2022 at 9:51 am #73441
Website Leaderboard 5 of 5:
This one uses more CC scripts and I have been having so much fun using them I have to stop myself adding everything in, as less is more. Anyway, there is an embroidered patch, two more postcards under my first use of a ribbon (I’m not normally a ‘ribbons & bows’ person but would like to learn more about there use as tucking things under them looks cool). The date holder on the right was cobbled together and could be better. That’s the lot with all 5 rotating on my website https://www.dowling.one-name.net/up/index.htm, and is the current ‘Leaderboard’ for about a week until I refresh with another creation.March 9, 2022 at 9:56 am #73442CasselKeymaster
Brian, that is a really fun collection of graphics and it is so interesting to see how you use the same tools as others and ended up with non-scrapbook projects that are very good-looking. Even your shadowing is on point. Good job! (and welcome to the Campus by the way!)March 9, 2022 at 10:35 am #73443
Brian – your site is really cool. I see that the 5 leaderboards fade in to reveal each one. Cool. A beautiful website!
