    I was lucky enough to upgrade to PSP ultimate 2018 for 75% off the  full price.  A pop up showed up on my laptop a few days ago. So I took advantage of the great offer.  So far no issues!  Using the 2018 version I made the October calendar, using the custom calendar script, and the Cassel brushes , also My handsome  10yr old cat page,  who behaves more like  my dog, he’s quite the character.  I created everything in the pages myself including the mask and background papers.  I love taking macro photos of insects,which is very addictive.  All photos are my own. For the Sept calendar page I used Cassel’s spiral binding tubes, lifted photo script, and custom calendar script.

    For some reason my cat page wasn’t included with the other two, although I uploaded it.

    I found that special too Sue, I was trying something in X7 and it told me there was an upgrade, then when I had done that it said I could have PSP 2018 for 75% off!! Naturally I bought it at that price. I am having a few issues with some of the newer stuff but I am working my way through them. Love your Calendar pages, and your gorgeous cat.

    Hello Sue, your photos  are lovely, especially “Tomi”.    I have Cassel’s calendar script also  but haven’t used it yet .. you have given me a reminder  to try it….your calendar pages have turned out great…

    Thank you ever so much ladies! I don’t post much, saying that I do see the work that you post, you are all very talented! I forgot to mention that in the Sept calendar, I  extracted a Ladybird and the flower that it was on  from another photo and placed it proportionally in the foreground of the main photo. xx

    Sue, your pages are great. So many techniques, details… and not forgetting the pretty cat and your beautiful photos. I am sure you had lots of fun creating it. Lovely work!

    Thank you Cristina.  One of my favourite scripts is the fanned script. Again I made all the papers, using various  element creation tutorials, like how to make plaid papers. Quilt patch, frayed edges. The last two are projects in progress, to be used in  cards.  The first one is a completed front page of a card, I’ve still to write a verse, and  create a matching  paper for the inside.  Again I’ve used the  Cassel brushes, stamp script, woven script (which I won). Now that summer is over I can spend some time on card making.  The horses and Tess, the dog, are my  pride and joy, along with Tomi. Photos are all mine.

    Hello Sue, your pages are really lovely! I also enjoy doing up cards and the result you have achieved is terrific. Cassel’s scripts add such  nice effects to our projects don’t they, especially the corner punches, they are one of my favourites.  Very creative Sue and well done! Look forward to seeing more of your projects.

    best wishes,

    Dawn.

    Yes April, Cassel’s scripts really do add a touch of class to our projects.  Thank you Cristina, the fanned script is so diverse, I can choose the number of copies,  the direction, also it will add a drop shadow if you want, even a border.

    I’m like Cristina and hadn’t seen the Fanned Script, I think the way you’ve used it Sue is very pretty. I might have to put it on my wish list.

    I make it unanimous. I have to get the Fanned Script! And I agree that the cutout brushes are awesome.

    This is an ongoing project.  I took several pics of  birds quite a few weeks ago. I keep going back to it, making adjustments, I must be satisfied with it, and say it’s finished. This is Autumn 2018, Spring and Summer are complete,only winter to do now. In my mind I will display the framed seasons  in an art gallery layout with lights above the frames, well that’s my thinking. I started with a blank canvas and photos.  The tools mostly used are the cutout, inner bevel, selection tool. Colours for the frame are taken from the photos, with textures added. I also made the masks.

    Hello Sue, I love your project… and your idea of displaying them sounds like a good one. The bird photos and your colour scheme are really lovely.  Your masks look good on the photos. Hope we get to see the other seasons you have done.

    best wishes,

    Dawn.

    I didn’t have very long to come up with this as, being American, I didn’t realize it was Thanksgiving in Canada until today. Cass’s corner cutout brushes came in handy again. The two print backgrounds are by Marisa L from pixelscrapper.  What looks like a border between the two backgrounds is actually four drop shadows. I manipulated them so that they joined in the four corners. I’m sure there’s a much easier way to get that result, but I was too tired to figure it out. (It was 5 am.) The font is Fcraft and I added a 3D Inner Bevel Effect.

    Wishing all the Canadians on the Campus a very Happy Thanksgiving.

    micfin, nice work. I love the dotted background, and Cassel’s corner cutout brushes always make the layout stand out… like this font as well.

    micfin,  a very nice combination of elements  for your page. Makes a lovely greeting.

    I created this 12×12 page project after being inspired by a free tutorial by Tish on the pspmadeez site that I have had for quite some time, but decided to try over the weekend.. I intend to reduce it to various sizes for my card making as gifts.. The items used in this project are Cassel’s Chain Bead Tube and also Cassel’s Bow 3 script. The girl image I extracted from a free image on the Graphic Fairy site.. Rose brush on panel was created from an old image I have and the 3 roses are a tube within psp program. The sentiment is a purchased digital stamp.  This one I will also include in a collection of cards I am doing up for my sister-in-law as a thank you gift.

    Dawn.

    Yay! Finished my first page following the Project 1 tutorial 😀

    I’m very new to PSP, don’t know where to find things, and watching the tutorial while using the latest version of PSP made it all the more challenging. Yeah, should have watched the latest ones but like I said, I know nothing 😀

    But finally, got something put together 🙂

    Hi Folks,

    I have a Grandson with a birthday in October & I used Cassel’s speech bubbles on a card I made for him. Hope you like it.

    Dawn, this is a beautiful card with so many techniques…I am sure your sister-in-law will be very happy.

    Rizzi and Peggy, lovely and cute layouts. Hope to see more of your work. 🙂

    AprilDawn, that’s really lovely. I use Graphics Fairy, too. Do you get her weekly freebie?

    Rizzi, your first page? Great job.

    Peggy, that’s an adorable card. Your grandson will love it.

    I drove myself nuts tonight trying to come up with pic for my group’s theme of the day, “Work!?” (I don’t know where the game devs come up with these ideas.) I only had a couple of hours to do it because I was running late. Anyway, I found the main pic on Google and I really loved it. What made me crazy was taking elements of the pic and making my own background papers from them. I had to really work hard at lining up the designs so they were seamless. Obviously the striped one wasn’t too difficult, but the art deco’ish design took some work. I’ve never done that before.

    I couldn’t resist playing with the clothes preset shapes. Another greeting card. I am not good at shading, so the dress is kind of blah. I dressed it up but it shows no pleats in the skirt or definition at the sleeves. Hope you like it.

    Cristina, thanks so much for your comment on my project.. my sister-in-law loves cards that are different…

    micfin, thank you for the comment on my page. in answer to your question, no I don’t get the weekly freebie however I may look into that as the site offers some very nice vintage images.  Your page looks terrific, you have done a really nice work, very creative! look forward to seeing the next one!

    Rizzi and Peggy… both of your pages are very nice… it is wonderful that you both are showing us some of your projects.

    Best wishes,

    Dawn.

    Hi Peggy, you must have been uploading at the same time I was, so I thought I would leave you another note.  I enjoy doing cards also and what you have created from one of those clothes shapes is great!  Your card is beautiful … well done!

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments, everyone, I am not well-versed in participating on forums so please forgive me for commenting on all of your posts. Your designs are all beautiful. Dawn, I love doing cards & other printables also. I probably have well over a hundred on my PC.

    Many Thanks,

    Peggy

    Hi again Peggy, this time last year I found the process of participating in the Forum a bit daunting but as time goes on I am sure you will find it a pleasant experience… especially here in the Campus.  I know I have been inspired by the many other participants here in the Forum.  It is a great way to share our ideas and also learn from the many tutorials etc that Cassel has. We have a similar interest in doing cards … I enjoy doing them to give away as gifts.  I look forward to seeing more of your creations here in the Forum. If you are a new member here than I would say a big WELCOME! to you.

    best wishes,

    Dawn.
