  1. I also see your project as a series of books.
  2. This was mine for the 2022 rainbow challenge
  3. Not sure why everything is jumping around on my laptop this morning. Maybe it's called a monkey wrench because when you grab for it you're not "monkeying around" - you mean business!!!!!
  4. My mom loved poetry and this was one of her favorites. I bet my kids remember her quoting this one many times.
  5. Such wonderful stuff you all are coming up with. I have loved browsing through all the layouts. Such creativity. I love what you all are doing!
  6. @Susan Ewart Dear friend! Thank you for the kind words. I really had no idea how to use it. It is supposed to have a hanger attached to it so that it could be used to hold a banner in place???? I like your suggestions - if I am going to change the element I made, I duplicate it (Shift+D) and do whatever with it. Those are some interesting suggestions. I may try some out while I'm waiting for my mojo to return. LOL
  7. I think I am done with Labs for a while. Wasn't happy with this one as I am not sure what I will ever do with a paper bow and a metal plate. Couldn't figure out how to use it for this layout and I am not happy with it anyway. Think I will try to get my mojo going again in the Build-A-Kit that is coming. @Susan Ewart Really impressed with what you are doing with that new script and your photography. Way to go girl!
  8. Lab 12 Mod 2. Requirements: Flash cards; I made several and decided that this would be about the Carmen Sandiego game I used to play on my Windows 98 computer many moons ago. The gal in the photo is her older sister who likes to play games and she is Carmen Sandiego in that mystery game played by grownups in Memphis, TN. My granddaughter and I used to try to discover where Carmen was by following the clues. Was it Paris?, India?, London? Or maybe in the USA in San Francisco? Another requirement was photo clips – I did make 4 so that you can use them in any orientation for holding down photos or whatever – here are 2. And the last requirement was a distressed frame – I did follow directions for this one and it covers the 2 game cards. The red circle I made some time ago when I was just playing around. The place stamps are from Nice Png. I made the question mark and employed the Cass-CustomDirectionalTube script. In one of the recent tutorials, the “layer Styles” tool was discussed. I employed it on the text and how I like it. I believe I like that bevel a whole lot! And of course the Emboss is really great too – And I used the Outer Glow on the bottom text and the “Where”! What fun this was! The background paper is a bulls eye paper I made last year or the year before when we were discussing making bullseye papers and I changed the colors on it with one of the tools but I can’t remember what it was now. The font is Carmina Blk BT (Can you guess why I chose that one?) The blue paper is texturized with a texture I got from Pixel Scrapper – Marissa Lerin. Of course I used the Clip-To-It script from Cassel – it is on my top list of tools – for the photograph. I did use the template that was given with the lab module, but it was customized by me!
  9. It ended up being the naming convention. I deleted everything connected with the name of that curved arrow. The problem was I didn't change the name of the shape from the preset shape I had used to start with and change it to the name I decided to call the finished project. How dumb!. Maybe I need that vector workshop again. I had previously downloaded that tutorial, but didn't look at it since it seemed to be so straight forward. The other preset shape that wasn't showing up also had a problem with the naming convention. So, back to studying vector shapes. Thank you, Carole for your help. And you too, Rene.
  10. As a matter of fact, not all of my exported preset shapes shows up in the list of preset shapes. They are listed in the place I have listed as file preferences, but they do not show up in the list. Now why????
  11. There must be some folder where the names are kept. There is a curved arrow which is simply nam ied Corel-018. It doesn't have a name in the showing of preset shapes except Arrow 18. and it is curved (but not as I made one). I made a curved arrow (vector pspimage) in one of Lab 11 modules. I saved it as MLS Curved Arrow.pspimage and tried to export it into preset shapes. I get the message that it is named the same as Corel-018 (which in any of the file folders is only labeled Corel-018). So even if I change the name of my pspimage, it still gives me the same message and won't show up in my preset shapes. Now the funny thing is, mine is listed in my preset shapes, but doesn't appear in my preset shapes when I look for it. Now explain that. I am so frustrated. Incidently, the 2 shapes are curved, but Corel's is filled and curves in the opposite direction, mine is only outlined and curves in a different direction.
  12. I've run into a problem in exporting a curved arrow created as a vector in one of Lab 11's modules. I keep getting the message that that name exists in one of the libraries for preset shapes. I cannot for the life of me find where there is a duplicate. How many places does a preset shape appear? Is there more than one place? If I look at the folder for preset shapes, I only find one place where the shapes exist - preset shapes folder! Is there another folder where they are located? I know that there are 2 places for brushes - the brush folder and one in program data.
  13. Lab 12 Mod 1. Requirements: Scallops 2: saved it as a pspimage for the pattern and then made the background paper from it. Colored Tape: it’s holding down the tape I created sometime ago; Hand drawn frame: Well I did make it but did not distress it; I made it as if it was a regular photo frame and even shadowed it on the inside as if it was thick and made a mat for the photo. I made the little circle paper in the bottom right corner and placed the spaceman sticker and the 3 journal stickers on the side and made the Space Camp sticker at the bottom. I used “Polar Cordinates” Distortion Effects on my star ribbon to outline the paper. The spaceman and the 3 journal stickers are from Pixel Scrapper – Sheila Reid. The Alphabet is one of a set I made in a Lab. The font used in the title is Segoe UI Black. The star scatter is also from Sheila Reid.
  14. I don't know either. But thanks for answering.
