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.

Mojo Monday Sketch

Guess what time it is Mojo Monday! And there is an added bonus...the submited card will be entered into a contest. The prize is a stamp set of your choice from Verve Stamps. I don't have much luck at winning things but making the card will be fun.

Here is the sketch for today. Sketches are always easy for me...all the thinking has been done for you. I am going to use a set of digi papers that I made from scanned fabric. Card is done...maybe I'll have some luck and win...LOL Yeah right.


  1. What a lovely card :) I haven't used digi papers yet - perhaps I'll have to give digital card making a try :)
