TRISH – I love yourbubble page. Was there a Bubble Challenge? I did not see it. Sorry to hear you have been so sick. When I signed up for the Covid Booster, I asked the pharmacist if it was OK to get the pneumonia shot at the same time. She said sometime it makes the reaction to either or both shot worse so I didn’t. Perhaps that is why your reaction has been so bad. I will try to remember to thank my Pharmacist the next time I see her.

Anne, some members are also part of a free FB group called PaintShop Pro Maniacs where I am an admin and we have a weekly challenge. “Bubbles” was the theme this week.March 9, 2022 at 11:15 am #73447
Thanks, I am a member of the scrapbooking with Paintshop Pro, but did not know about the PSP Maniacs. I will have a look.March 9, 2022 at 11:20 am #73448CasselKeymaster
Yeah, I don’t promote that group as it is not really mine. It belongs to someone else, and he asked me to help. But I see an overlap in members!March 9, 2022 at 10:55 pm #73457
This is Lab 7 Mod 6. Papers are mine. Projects this time were: Create a thread? stitch so that it could be a continued line of stitching, a shape to fill with a created pattern (straight stick), a button. Did all three. Had fun making the arrow, and the heart. Was going to do a star too, but decided to flood fill it with a glitter pattern which I will use sometime later. The fanned pictures are from a script from Carole. I wanted something different this time to display multiple pictures, as I usually use a boxey kind of layout when there are multiple pictures. The additional butterflies are picture tube butterflies. Yes, the little girl was just standing there as there were a lot of butterflies that were attracted to the flowers on her skirt. Amazing. The only picture I got was of the one butterfly. My brother enjoyed the Butterfly House – I had been there before with my daughter and daughter-in-law, Laurie. The script for the title is Brush455 BT.
Didn’t notice the spot until I submitted the pic. Went back & changed PSPImage as well as the jpg and _600 jpg.

Easter isn’t to far away now. I decided to create a few Easter tags, some to be used in cards, which I will be creating, to be printed and posted home. The word art has to be rearranged. Just for fun I cut out the ears on the word Hoppy. The tags themselves are templates saved as psp files. Here’s one of several I did last night. These are so much fun to make, and really simple to do.
Mary, very nice work. The lab is such a fun place to learn , and inspire creativity. For newbies and seasoned PSPers. I often randomly pick a lab, to refresh my memory on techniques, and look for ideas for projects.March 10, 2022 at 5:32 pm #73473Lynda DiGregorParticipant
I went through the Filter Forge 2 class on-line and I was also playing with Carole’s PageMaker-Photo script, which by the way had me going in circles for a bit but I figured it out with the help of Carole, anyway, I combined the two to get this example. I had to make each opening black, promote to a layer and rename each “Photo” then pull the frame to the top of the layers, then run the PageMaker-Photo script. Filter Forge has a ton of frames and anything else you want.March 11, 2022 at 1:55 am #73476
Brian, I agree with Mary, that’s one cool and very interesting site.March 11, 2022 at 5:10 pm #73490
I am practicing with masks today. Here is Pye two with different backgrounds. I think I like the white-ish one best. She went over the rainbow bridge in a very sudden and unexpected way a few years ago. She was a sweet gentle soul who always knew when you needed a lap kitty.
Pye came to us through the BCSPCA. We had decided to adopt two cats (she’ll be in later layouts) and had them picked out. While describing them to the SPCA on the phone they had too many with the same description so I jumped in the car to go and point out the two. When I got there I saw Pye, she looked up at me with these huge eyes and had the tiniest meow. And that was it, she was ours. My hubby and I had just watched the movie “Bell, Book and Candle” with Kim Novak and James Stewart and decided to call her Pyewacket …because we “thought” she looked exactly like the cat in the movie. A few months later we watched the movie again…and laughed so hard when we saw Pyewacket is a Siamese! From then on we’d say she “magic’d” us that day that we adopted her.
Background papers are kaleidoscope and dots, all learned in the Mask Workshop (which I loved) and available in Diamond membership (which I love even more 😊).

I liked the freebie tags a lot and just like Sue I like to create my own elements now, so I gave it a try. I made the tag as a template and can give it a color that suits the project I want to use it on.March 13, 2022 at 2:47 pm #73542Ann SeeberParticipant
I’ve had this photo of my great-granddaughter, Magic, for a while and decided to try Carole’s heart/slat template. This was taken in May 2021 when she was 11 months.March 13, 2022 at 8:50 pm #73575
How can you not smile at your G.G. niece. So cute.
I am still working on masks and greatful I had the video to watch again, as I was missing a step (forgot to put the opacity back to 100 on that one mask from day 2). This page is one of my sweet cat girls, QeTesh (Tesh) who has passed over the rainbow bridge. She was adopted along with Pye (Pyewacket) from my last layout. A sweet tiny girl who was surrendered to the SPCA at 3 months and she remained there until we adopted her at 7 months. People didn’t like her because she was “too noisy”. We loved that about her. A big personality in a little tiny package.
I used plaid background (opacity is not reduced, it’s that light) and tried 4 different plaids with the browns in the fur, but it didnt look good with background in the photo. The font for both is Sunroll from Creative fabrica, using uppercase/lowercase for different characters (no private use characters for this font). I tweaked the mask size/shape and the placement of the small masks (before they were masks as instructions explained). I made the brown plaids and the two small mask from memory. A wee bit of progress. Tomorrow I will forget I’m sure.🤔

Wanted to display this one since we are going to devise templates. Made the mask; then slipped a paper under the group; stitched the paper with the stitch created in one of the more recent labs I was working on; used cogwheels that I created in a lab some time ago; used a doily I created in one of the labs – that was fun and I’ve created several doilies; the poinsettas are from a picture tube and the leaves I created some time ago. The paper was created with a pattern found in the patterns folder that came with PSP. The Jeep was purchased recently since it follows the camper much better than some other cars.March 13, 2022 at 11:17 pm #73591
Here is another one with masks. And my second post of this…a furry friend jumped up and hit the delete key I think.
This little gal, QeTesh (Tesh), was adopted at the same time as Pye (prev. layout in this forum). She was surrendered when she was 3 months old and remained at the SPCA until we adopted her at 7 months. People said she was too talkative. All the more reason we loved her. We miss our tiny talking tabby, with a big beautiful personality.
I used the tutorial to make about 5 different plaids and went with this very light one (based on the background of the lower left image). I did have a wee issue when I forgot the bigger mask had a lowered opacity. I couldnt figure out why my image was dull. Thankfully I had the video to refer to and I saw my error. I was able to make the two smaller masks into a mask group without having to resort to the directions. Same with the plaids, as I had made them over and over. By tomorrow I will have forgotten the steps but today I’ll take the win.
The font is Sunroll from Creative Fabrica and I used a combination of the upper/lower case for the different variations (no private use characters with this font).March 14, 2022 at 3:43 pm #73614Marie-ClaireParticipant
I made this because tomorrow 15/03 is the birthday of my dog Poncho and his brother Pacco.
My dog’s brother lives with our neighbors who are also our best friends.
I used a free template from Chantahlia Design, and for the text ‘happy birthday’ the script ‘ShapedText’ from CaroleMarch 14, 2022 at 3:47 pm #73616
E 4 Easter
This is a kit from MM part of a kit on sale $1.50
the window isnt part of the kit but it has a lot moreMarch 14, 2022 at 4:26 pm #73618
This is my E for Easter. Background of the picture is from a picture I took in Groom, TX of the Passion- this is the empty tomb. The picture of the Risen Christ is a picture I took in our Church and extracted to be placed on top of the mask layer. The picture of the flowers around the scene is a picture of a Bradford pear tree in our Church parking lot one spring a few years ago. I created the mask for this, added the bradford pear picture below the mask group; the frames around the scene are a layer of gold glitter from Pixel Scrapper; the Easter lillies are from Nice Png-1087268; the E is one of my stitched letters and I don’t remember the font name for Easter.March 14, 2022 at 5:15 pm #73625Liz KershawParticipant
ive been doing some tagsMarch 15, 2022 at 3:48 pm #73638
A chat friebd from another chat is in one of the Ukraine cities that has been under attack. I created this for her and posted it there and elsewhere. The dove was from nicepng and I changed the colors to mostly the flag colors of the Ukraine and Russia. The olive branch is from creative fabrica, the earth is form digitalscrapbook, & I think the original frame was too. I don’t remember where the background paper is from.March 16, 2022 at 8:22 am #73644Liz KershawParticipant
used a mask hereMarch 16, 2022 at 2:03 pm #73652
Liz, you have posted some wonderful layouts! And Pinochio was one of my favorite stories – the book is better than the Disney version!
Anne Lamp, your layouts for Peace are beautiful – something we all need!
Marie-claire, you showcase pictures of your dog beautifully!
Susan, Ann and Trish – love your layouts!
Corrie, Sue, and Linda -great work as always.
Lynda – I did get Filter Forge this time round – it’s interesting what you can do with what they provide – and it is great that you just have to go to the store to search and get the something you’re looking for instead of having ALL that’s available on your hard drive.March 17, 2022 at 1:42 pm #73669
Lab 7 Mod 7. Used a photo mosaic template I had made in a previous lab and changed it to accomodate a vertical and 2 horizontal pictures; papers are my own as is the glitter star. Learned from Lab 7 Mod 7: quatrofoil pattern and chevron on the side (also this chevron negative) – they were used to produce the papers in the background of the layout and the background of the mosaic template of the pictures. The font for the title is Bodini MT Black and the font for the narrative is Arial Rounded MT Bold. This also was fun and I made several different papers for the quatrofoil and the chevron negative. There was a small paper used in the layout illustrating this module which I worked on and I will show here – it doesn’t have a background, but I saved the pspimage so that I could supply one if I wanted to later on.March 17, 2022 at 5:51 pm #73671
Wow Mary, I love that layout and the blue snowflake paper is devine. I think it’s a wonderful idea doing the Labs, it is like taking classes and it looks like you are learning a lot of techniques.
I’m still pluggin’ away with masks. Today is our torbie, Emi. We called her our Beautiful Blessing (some sources on google said it’s the Japanese meaning for Emi – google knows all, right? 😜). We got Emi when Pye passed away on the operating table during a dental procedure – they had called me to come pick her up and in the 8 min drive her heart stopped. Tesh went downhill without her lifelong sister. We searched and searched and found Emi, at the Humane Society, they called her a “cattitude” cat, meaning she had behavior issues and might never want to be handled. They couldn’t have been more wrong. She was a cuddle bug after settling in and had this amazing zest for life and play. If a cat could laugh, that was her. After about 6 months Tesh warmed up to her and they started sleeping together regularly. Sadly, Emi was very lethargic and weak one Sunday (the day before completely fine) and we rushed her to emergency. After 24 hours in an oxygen chamber we said goodbye to her. It was believed her heart valve failed. This was the hardest page to make. Tesh, who we found out had pancreatitis (through ultrasound) and who had a fabulous pain-free year thanks to our wonderful vet (NOT the same vet as Pye) passed over the rainbow bridge 2 month later. Still to come are my current (living) gals and our very first cat who lived a long full life.
The fonts for Beautiful Blessing (using the character map) is Octagon and I forget the title font. I made dots in two colors and was deciding which I liked and I could see the other color slightly offset (I made two separate images for the dots, for the practice) and liked the effect so I kept it.March 17, 2022 at 6:39 pm #73675

Trish – your E is beautiful; that lace looks like a bridal veil.
So I guess I’m on a roll. Usually it’s hard to determine what picture(s) to use when pursuing the labs. The colors I had used iin creating papers usually determines what I’m going to use. This is Lab 7 Mod 8. Learned to make a triangle pattern and I made several papers with it. I used green for this one. The pattern is with an open background, so I supplied a lighter green for this background; learned to make a random pattern (Carole chooses a heart to make the random pattern and so I did too) – one of the results is the small paper behind the picture; learned to make a circler wooden round into a painted wooden round (the paint does not completely cover the wooden object – it’s in the bottom left corner of the layout. Think I will go back and make a rectangle or square object also – could see using them more than a round one. Used the open background down arrow paper I made before and changed the background color of it to white. The font used was Brush Script MT. The daises and leaves are from picture tubes. The background which makes a frame for the triangle background paper is a gradient which I chose with a 45 degree angle to flood fill the layer. It’s fun learning in the labs. Sometimes I go back and redo things learned in an earlier version. I do enjoy the Diamond Membership!

I’m lost! I can’t stop playing with PSP 2022 and now Filter Forge also!
So I stayed up last night and came up with this using one of Carole’s masks, instead of using it for one picture, I decided to use it for 6 pictures and then had a time with the frames so that the pictures are shown as just slightly overlapping. Whew! The font is Bernhard Tango BT – chiseled and inner beveled with PSP and then Simple Emboss with Filter Forge. The frame on the background is mine which was chiseled. The fall leaves scatter are from a picture tube and all were recolored gold. The background paper is mine.March 20, 2022 at 1:23 pm #73733Brian DowlingParticipant
I’m with Mary, I find it quite addictive when I get going on PSP 2022. On my website I try to get something to change, if only a little, so it doesn’t look neglected. Yesterday I added my latest graphic for the Diary section. It’s a Preset Shape wheel, sectioned-off in places and wood patterns added to it with a twist of the pattern with each spoke and section of the wheel-rim. My favourite script Copper-It was used to copper the leaves with Celtic season labels. These have two shadows one for the wooden rim and one, deeper, for underneath. The pointer on the right is leather on a rock created with a Filter Forge stone embossed with a spiral pattern (looks very Gaelic).
The Daffodils was put through the Word Slats script. I have kept the psp file so can use the wheel again for the other special days by swivelling the leaves and re-doing the drop shadow.
I have stop myself adding everything I have… I barely stopped myself adding frost to the winter phase! I’ll get on with the next picture that will probably be a Mother’s Day picture pointing genealogy users at a women’s list, maybe.March 20, 2022 at 2:14 pm #73742
Brian – yes – I told my granddaughter I was addicted to PSP2022 and making the layouts and she told me I was really OCD (obsessive) – Maybe that’s why I identify with Monk! lol!
I redid the open down arrows small paper and this is one of the results. It works better and I made a bunch of them to go with various themes. The previous one was kind of rough!March 26, 2022 at 5:48 pm #74255
This has noting to do with the current projects. A fellow chatter on an Explore live cam is in one of the cities in the Ukraine that has been hit hard. I created this with the colors from both flags and cut out an oval with the Eclipse tool, gave it some extra noise, added the black dove, duplicated it and made it white, then resized the top dove just a little and added the text. I then opened it in a different program and added the border around the eclipse. I started out just going to do a simple project and it developed a mind of it’s own. So what’s new.
