Digital Card Making with PSP

I love making my own greetings cards and thought that the card challenges would be a lot of fun. I have a lot of paper and pens...and the other things one would need to make great cards. I found myself trying to keep up with what is new on the market... then I realize all the stuff, the papers, glue, and stamps were getting very costly and I was running out of space to store it all.

That is when I decided to make elements for my cards in Paint Shop Pro aka PSP. PSP is a software that I have been teaching myself since version 3. Now using version 13 I have learned that the program can also create images and paint them as well. Light bulb went off...why not use it to make my cards and not just some elements for the cards. And so digital card making began for me...and boy has it saved me money.

This blog now consist of my creations that I have made using nothing but PSP. I found the challenge for me is to teach myself how to meet the different card challenges within PSP.

Well that is how all this digital stuff began...Just thought I share.

365 Card Challenge - Mixed Messages

It took me a while to come up with some-
thing for this one. Anyway the challenge
was to incorporate THREE ways to create a
sentiment to make one big sentiment. I
used a scrabble tile, a computer generated
image and written type.


  1. What a clever take on the challenge! Love the message and the light bulb is PERFECT!

  2. Looks like you've got the lot in this one! Well done!

  3. aha....good it!!!

  4. I love the sentiment........GREAT job, just lovely!!!!!!

  5. Hi, Jaggs, this is my first time to stop by your blog. But we were thinking alike today on the creative front...I used the scrabble tile 'U', 2!!! Your card is most the lightbulb
