It is a new month and new projects.
Show off what you are working on in September, 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:
September 1, 2022 at 1:19 pm #82046
- 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.
New month, new Big Cat Calendar. For September we have a pair of African Lions. They are the only big cats that live in family groups and the male defends his territory and sires the new generation while a group of females do all the hunting. These calendars are from Cassel’s yearly templates. They just need a photo and some color. I have posted a .jpg in the Files section of the Facebook group. It prints out at 8.5″ x 11″September 1, 2022 at 1:25 pm #82048cindy harrisParticipant
Ann Hi hey can I give my daughter your calendar I think she will love it Dont want to share unless I ask thanksSeptember 1, 2022 at 2:18 pm #82059
Cindy: Of course you can share it with your daughter. I put a full size .jpg in the Files section of our Scrapbooking with PaintShop Pro Facebook group. It will print on normal printer paper. Enjoy!September 1, 2022 at 2:50 pm #82060cindy harrisParticipant
thank you ann going nowSeptember 2, 2022 at 6:52 pm #82145
I am a bit late with the scraplift challenge in the last days of Augustus so I post it here. I had the flowerpaper in my stash and made the other 2 and the ribbon with the ribbonfactory script and I’m very glad I bought the raster to mask script. I know perfectly well how to do it but the script saves a lot of time. I have done this technique so many times that it becomes a bit boring! The photos are taken last weekend in the gardens of Appeltern (DE Tuinen van Appeltern), a very extensive area with many show gardens and materials and planting. Monique has once showed something about these gardens in a project too.September 2, 2022 at 8:16 pm #82149
Corrie: That’s beautiful! I can see your love of flowers in many of your layouts. When I did this challenge, I also used the raster-to-mask script. It saved a lot of time with those pie-shaped photos.September 3, 2022 at 1:34 am #82185
I love that Corrie, I have being using them in a photo project, they arent nearly as nice as the ones you photographed. I did not know anything about them, now I do thank to your layout. I think i’ll have to check and see if I have that Raster to Mask script.September 3, 2022 at 3:40 am #82186
Very nice Corrie, my compliments too.September 3, 2022 at 1:25 pm #82193
I’ve done a design incorporating a story, a sport and that same scraplift. The sport is Rodeo. I flipped the design from the last scraplift about Chicago. The Dutchess County Fair was here last week. It’s just across the Hudson River from where I live.September 3, 2022 at 4:55 pm #82199
Ladies thank you for all the praise, you make me blush!
Ann that 2nd layout for this scraplift challenge is as nice as the 1st!September 4, 2022 at 2:23 pm #82215Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Messing around with Carole’s MoneyBill. The letters that I needed were not part of the zip so I constructed my own trying to make them as close as I could. Here is my million dollar dogSeptember 5, 2022 at 2:49 pm #82241
The Tut/Tech Challenge is still up for August and since it’s a new month I’ll post this watercolor here. The most complicated part was the label.September 5, 2022 at 4:34 pm #82259
Ann, beautiful and the frame makes the watercolor stand out.September 5, 2022 at 9:20 pm #82270Bonnie BallentineParticipant
This is a scrap lift but I cannot remember where I found the lifted layout. Each of the saying is a strategy in pickleball.September 6, 2022 at 12:59 am #82279
Lynda, love Lucy, all pets are million dollar pets arent they.
Ann, I love your framed works, they look so real. That is really pretty.
Bonnie, I learn so much and had to laugh at some of Wisdoms of Picklball….Get to the Kitchen/ Stay out of the Kitchen -hilarious. I really love that Words of Wisdom, it’s very pretty.
Here is a photo layout. The top 1/2 is the actual top 1/2 of one of the three photo’s used. The bottom left and right magpies are two separate photo’s and I lined up the power line. They all kind of look like they are extracted but only the middle bottom magpie is extracted, which was sitting on the green corrugated fence. I desaturated to make more of a black/white/grey layout and to match the magpies with the crows. I left a touch of blue in the sky. My friend (since I was 12) is actually 57, the 7 is a joke on our age and also the days of both of our birthdays (7th – different months). The extraction took a long time, there was stray marching ants everywhere. It’s the one bird least looking like it was extracted.September 6, 2022 at 7:54 am #82282Bonnie BallentineParticipant
Thank you, Susan. All of the sayings are actually strategies. The position of power is at the kitchen line and the game is won and lost there. However, you are not allowed to hit a ball before it bounces if you are in the kitchen, AKA, the non-volley zone, so we say stay out. However, you can go into the kitchen all you want…just don’t hit a volley. Pickleball rules are a mess and can be difficult to learn. When I teach people to play, I teach the rules as we play…September 6, 2022 at 3:58 pm #82309
For lack of anything else I’m still playing around with the watercolor effect. Here’s a photo from my Rodeo layout done up as a watercolor with a frame and a label. I’m also getting a lot better at making my own frames.September 6, 2022 at 4:02 pm #82312
Oh wow! Ann, that is very nice.September 6, 2022 at 4:27 pm #82319
Susan: Thanks for the kind words! Very much appreciated. 🙂September 6, 2022 at 5:24 pm #82321
Judging by the fashion This photo was taken in 1900. My grandfather is on the left. luckily their grandfather was a Taylor. I did one of the tutorials from Carole’s last live presentation. And an edge from the Bootcamp.September 6, 2022 at 6:02 pm #82337
Jannette: I really like that style with the cutout letters at the top. Must try it soon.September 7, 2022 at 1:49 am #82349
Thanks, Ann. It’s not that hard. Only very precisely.September 7, 2022 at 4:56 pm #82398Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Ann, Very nice. I like the texture addition
LyndaSeptember 7, 2022 at 6:33 pm #82403
Jannette, that’s wonderful. I love old pictures like that and the cut out looks fabulous.September 8, 2022 at 5:51 pm #82464
Here’s a Green Heron in watercolor style with a fall overlay that was a Corel freebie this week. They had a TON of freebies! I created the double frame, first with one filled with a red wood pattern which I then make green using the Change to Target brush. (Love that tool!) Then I added the outer frame using off-white. I used a little inner and outer bevel and finish up with buttonize on both.
Edit: forgot to put shadows on the overlay.

What is Santa doing now? I suppose, he colects presents for us. He pays with stars:)
I used my own fractal (Apophysis7) and red hearts from PSP Tube.September 10, 2022 at 8:20 am #82604Sue ThomasParticipant
I created a brush out of an owl clipart. Created a bracket frame, cut out effect for the text. Created the wavey effect using the pen tool.September 12, 2022 at 6:51 am #82760Colin HoosonParticipant
Hi, I’ve had a few goes at doing something around “Money” and to my surprise I discovered that you can’t use an image of a bank note in PSP, not even when you use such an image as a cut out as in the last webinar. Carol put me right most image editors will not allow the use of bank notes, just in case you try to forge some, silly me. So out of frustration I threw this together, and thank you to Carol for the templates came just in time.September 12, 2022 at 8:53 am #82763
