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

Sketch time! As you all know this is my favorite type of challenge. All I have to do is come up with the colors and papers. I download a new digi packet the other day from Craftyscraps.blogspot.com called Misty. Very pretty papers...I used some them on this card. Challenge met my card is done.

  1. I like the card...at the rate digi-stamping/scrapbooking is catching on, it won't be long before it breaks even with cut & paste. This past weekend, I spent $60 on wood mounted stamps at a convention and then found 2 in digi format that were very close in design. I'm totally running out of space for stamps. Along with clear stamps, I am "upgrading" to digis. Can you share the link for the "free" site mentioned in this post? I'd love to take advantage of it.
