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.

Feel the Spirit

I had actually decided not to do any challenges for the rest of this week and first part of next week, but when I saw the challenge for Papercraft Star I knew I had to create an entry.

A few years ago I lived in Waukegan, Il and one night the sky changed to multiple colors streaks, much like what you see in the photo...the colors were moving was like nothing I had ever seen. I heard about the Northern Lights but until then I had never seen them and have not seen them since. It was was like the sky was full of the great spirit.

The photo on the card I acquired from my clip art program. The digi papers which seem to be made for this photo is from a free digi kit by Marti Scraps and the brads I created.
