New script – Custom Kit Frames

Custom Kit frame script for Paintshop ProNow, you can create a series of frames of different sizes using several papers you have on hand. This is perfect if you want to create frames to go along with your kit, but it can also be an interesting tool to give you some frames that you can use on your own layout using the colors of your project.

You can generate plain frames or add an inner mat of the color you want (hopefully to match the papers you selected).

Keep the frames you like and discard the others. Create up to 15 frames in a single execution.

New script – Bingo Cards

Bingo cards script for Paintshop ProIf you have a project about game night or bingo winners, you might want to add some bingo cards to your layout, but usually, you will find some pretty ordinary cards that won't necessarily match the colors or style you are using.

This script allows you to create some custom cards with your choice of colors and fonts, and you can even tweak them even more at the end since everything is left on separate layers.

This script includes a random function for each number so it generates "playable" cards that you can also customize with a theme and print out to play at the next birthday party, or family/friends gathering.

As a freebie for this week, I created 5 matching cards so you can actually print them out and use them to play. Laminate them so you can keep them for later.

I customized these cards in a few ways: I replaced the background paper by a water texture image (read the instructions and you will see that it is NOT possible to select a photo as a background during the running of the script), and I removed the colored area where the numbers are so you only see the numbers and the grid. It is ok since the black is contrasting enough for the cards to be usable.

Chocolate script for Paintshop ProIf you like chocolate, here is your chance to get a sweet treat for your next graphic project. Whether you like white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate, you are in luck!

Since some celebrations are coming in the next 7-10 days, why not get ready? I created TWO freebies for you.

I created some basic papers in the red/white and blue/white/red colors and generated a ton of bottle caps using those papers and some basic colors for the base. I have to admit that I cheated a bit by creating the white base (which is not done directly in the script).

You can choose one set of twelve bottle caps or the other, or you can also choose to get both of them!

New script – Beads Art

Beaded element script for Paintshop ProIt can be fun to convert a simple clipart into a beaded element to add to a themed layout. You can do that with this script which will convert ANY image into a set of beads, all fused together.

Although you can use a full image or a photo, you will get more drastic results with brightly colored clipart or designs. Also, make sure you don't have fine lines like thin legs, antenna, hair, stems, etc. because they will just disappear. If necessary, remove those fine elements and just add them afterward, to the beaded result.

Critters made of beadsFor a little taste of summer (at least for the Northern Hemisphere), I made these 4 adorable critters in beads art for you. Each of them is about 1000 pixels in size so you can easily size them down to suit your layout.
