#10292 Paint net course on this site

Posted by Janet on 25 May 2014 - 07:31 PM

I'm joining those of you who have signed up so far
I am looking forward to it

Yes I know how to do some things in paint.net and other graphics programs but there is much more to learn than I know
There are so many plug ins available for paint.net which open up so many doors for our craft projects and other things

Doris and Burnhamsieve I'm with you on needing plain English we can all muddle through together :) That's one of the nice things about doing this course being able to learn at our own pace and ask questions when / if need be
I'm sure we will get lots of help from Bob and each other

Once the course has been completed and hopefully gained more confidence who knows what can be acheived

It will be nice to see results on personalised craft projects in our gallery

Looking forward to June :)

#8101 card challange

Posted by Janet on 24 February 2013 - 09:20 AM

The cards and descriptions of how the card was made / what was used etc can be added to the relevant challenge threads in the challenge card section.
Members are unable to add the pictures to the challenge card gallery either Bob or I would have to do that it seems that any gallery can only be posted in by who created it. members can add the pictures to their own gallery if they want to

I will sort out how to upload pictures to a post for those who don't know later today

#7983 Paper Choices Poll

Posted by splatcat on 26 January 2013 - 12:23 PM

We often get suggestions about are paper size choices. I am interested to know how members feel about a couple of these choices and hopefully if I've done this correctly there will be a couple of questions for you to answer. Please also use the thread to make any general comment you have on the range of papers we do (and by that I mean size, orientation, crop marks etc... NOT topics).

I don't really want to add too many more paper types, if you count all the insert sheets each set already contains 17 different types of papers and obviously the more types we do, the longer it takes and the more server space it takes up. Obviously there is no reason people can't cut A4 sheets to whatever sizethey want but then there is the waste of ink issue!

#7918 Re: Card Challenges.

Posted by Percy on 08 January 2013 - 01:22 PM

Ok, This is what I would like to see starting 2013 for our card challenges. We skip the prize's, voting and mailing in of cards to Janet.

Instead, we still run the challenge, but you have to take the photo of it a post it on the forum in a special box to be dedicated to this. You will also be ask on how you made your card, IE; card, imbelishments, etc. I feel more members would like to know how cards are made.

What do you think?

#7897 A short note about confidentiality.

Posted by splatcat on 05 January 2013 - 06:14 PM

When you join the forum you are asked to submit your email address etc. Occasionally we do also ask you for other information such as your address when sending out prizes etc. We keep all of this information strictly confidential and do not share it with anybody, not even other forum members.

The same should apply when information is shared between forum members. If another member shares their telephone number or address with you for any reason, card swapping or such like, you should keep this confidential and not share it with any 3rd party unless you have explicit permission to do so. Whilst we assume that most people already do this we feel that a little reminder isn't a bad idea.

#7010 Bobs 5x50 challenge.

Posted by splatcat on 09 September 2012 - 04:07 PM

I am undertaking the 5x50 challenge which means I will be jogging/running 5km a day for 50 days in a row (starting today 9th September. To be honest I don't expect the 5km to worry me, I've gone much further than that... it's the 50 days in a row which seems daunting!

Obviously I am doing this for charity and equally obviously that charity is to do with Rett Syndrome, in particular the Rett Syndrome Research Trust.

I have a "Just Giving Page" and I am looking for sponsorship/donations. I'm not expecting anyone to donate much, not many of us can in these times, but I'd love to try and get lots of people to give a little!

This is the only charitable event I / Free Craft Downloads / Free Craft Stuff will be doing this year so please do donate if you can.

I also wrote down the email address Pamela, just in case I don't get the die in question. The service and answer I got made me angry. I feel sorry for Percy having such problems with them.
