I have been working more in Photoshop Elements this weekend. Not much, just a little, but I have completed a few more calendar pages.

I haven’t yet tried it in Creative Memories’ StoryBook Creator software. Just Photoshop.  In PSE it is a breeze to edit.

Here are some samples:

Note: the calendar template is from ScrapGirls if you are interested in making your own. There is a separate file for each month. All I did was drop in my photos and papers.

Also, If you haven’t viewed these tutorials by Cathy Zielske (and you are learning about Photoshop like me) I would strongly suggest you take a few minutes to watch them. They are very well done.

She has one on using templates and one for creating rounded corners (or just one or two rounded corners) which I think is a really cool effect.

I’m ready, I think, to start doing more things in PSE. I have signed up for Jessica Sprague’s beginner’s PSE class.  That’s my next project. 🙂 (’cause I don’t have anything else going on right now! ha!)

  1. Flora,
    I know exactly how you feel! I have been the same way for a while now (years) but I finally decided that I wasn’t going to be bested by a software program. I am finding it is not as scary or as difficult as I first thought. Those video tutorials really helped me get things started.
    Let’s learn together! Keep me posted on your progress!
    Lois
